As a kid, I remember my mom’s silk blouse. It was the essence of femininity and the fancy piece she afforded herself in an otherwise simple wardrobe. With flowy sleeves and pearlized buttons, she only wore it for the most special of occasions. Whether it was date nights or weddings, this piece made it’s appearance when mom needed a break from being mom and wanted to express beauty unlike any other. As I aged, I learned that silk processing has come a long way from the blouse that once lived in my mom’s closet. A perfect basic for ripped skinnies, a flowy tank for date nights, or a summer dress paired with a simple sandal. Silk has stayed premium and luxurious, while more accessible to the public. Today we’re teaming up with our friends at Grana as we style our favorite silk dress for the spring.

Happy Friday everyone!
Wow what a week it has been. Between graduations, mother’s day, and saying farewell to friends as they leave for distant lands some for longer than I would like. May is always a season of transition, of hard goodbyes, and figuring out the next steps. While it is my third May in this community, I can’t say that the practice has made farewells any easier. I’m welcoming my travel in the upcoming weeks as a slight reprieve and embracing all that comes with the summer months. I’m hoping to find a few adventures and moments of downtime during the weekend. Also, pool parties and nights on the patio will become the norm as we hit our first week of triple digits temperatures. You will find me hibernating inside or in the water from now until September.
Now that the school year has come to a close, there’s nothing more exciting than the moments where reading is no longer required but by choice. I can’t wait to dive into some books that have on hold until summer. Whether history, non-fiction, business, or self-improvement is your thing, you’ll find a new favorite, as we share what we’re reading, spring edition.
When it comes to spring favorites, lavender is my absolute favorite. In the mornings, you’ll usually find me sipping on a homemade latte macchiato. However, when I go out, I always head to a favorite coffee shop and purchase a honey lavender latte. This morning, I decided to take on the challenge of making it at home. It worked perfectly.

There’s something about a rainy day in spring. The peaceful sound of the raindrops against the windows, and the fresh crispness of the air. We put on our coziest layers and make big pots of soup. Our April has been filled with rainy days and sometimes a great playlist can be the best remedy to getting things done when all you want to do is stay in bed. (It can be a big challenge when working from home.) We put together this playlist to embrace all that the last rainy days of spring have to offer.
Have an amazing weekend everyone!
