Texas

More photos of our wondrous trip to West Texas.  If you go to West Texas, you need to stop in Marfa–it’s truly the final frontier. Even though Marfa gets a lot of hype in the press, it remains remarkably unscathed and secluded.

We drove to the outskirts of Marfa to see the Prada exhibit, and just hours later it was vandalized by an “artist.”

Wearing more of the beautiful SS/14 Chanel collection. This coat is incredible!

Evolution of a Home

Janealdridgehome

A few months ago I did an overhaul on my living room. I fell in love with a 70s ikat sectional sofa and found the amazing mirrored cabinets and marble table at Salvation Army. The transformation really kind of happened in a matter of hours!  This is more or less how it looks right now. I still want to move the acupuncture statue between my cabinets but she weighs a ton! I’m feeling inspired to spruce it up a bit lately. Below is a photo of my place pre-makeover as  shot by Manny Rodriguez for Rue Magazine.

I sort of miss my place like this sometimes. Now my living room feels much more liveable with the new sofa. I do a lot of entertaining at my place and it’s been great for that. My mom and I share a brain when it comes to design and we love taking on projects together, I think we are going thrift store scavenging to see what we can find that inspires us this week! I must share the insane bronze cherub table she found when we went to Salvation Army last week. What a piece!

Over the top? In the best way possible! I can’t wait to see it in her place.

This is my mom’s living room right now, she has been playing around with it lately. She told me that she wants to give me those insane red chairs. An offer I would gladly take her up on! Maybe they’ll be just what my living room needs.

ESSENTIAL LINEN

I’m loving laid back linen pieces like this top and dress from Three Dots for spring. This black dress is going to be on repeat for me this summer. The silhouette is so timeless. I can easily picture this on Jackie O in the past or Kate Moss sporting this presently! Love how my sister styled this pintucked linen top, I’m always amazed at her ability to throw together things so effortlessly.

HAIR TUTORIAL-the Messy Bun


seaofshoes.com the Messy Bun Tutorial

This hairstyle is a ridiculously easy Brigitte Bardot inspired look that you can do in less than ten minutes. Even better, it works best on dirty hair! Yay!

1. Start with volumized hair. If it’s freshly washed, blow dry product into it. I use a cocktail of Serge Normant Meta Lush volumizer and Sachajuan Rootlift mousse to build a really great base for styling. If you really want to nail this look, I recommend popping a few hot rollers in your crown for girls with fine hair. If your hair is dirty, congratulations, you can skip these steps! For extra bigness, sprinkle a ton of Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Porter Powder (hands down my favorite dry shampoo)  onto your roots, flip your hair upside down and massage into your scalp like crazy. Your hair will be massive.

2. Using a curling wand, curl random sections of your hair in alternating directions. I recommend twisting the section of hair you are about to curl BEFORE wrapping it around the iron. This makes the curls a lot more ‘surfer girl’ and less ‘junior prom night’.  You don’t want that look, ever. Haha.

3.  Seperate your crown section, pull it upwards, and tease for volume. A teasing comb is nice to have for this. Pull some hair out towards your face, this makes the look more messy and flattering. Pull the teased section into a high ponytail on top of your head using a small rubber elastic.

4. Pull the ponytail through a sock bun. Nestle that sock bun at the base of your ponytail. Give the ponytail a nice tug once the sock bun is situated.

5. Now for the artistic part. Pin your randomly curled sections randomly around your bun. Take your time doing this and make sure the sock bun is covered. You may find it helpful to tease the sections before wrapping them around the bun. Mist liberally with hairspray as you go, until you have achieved the look you want. Give it a few final hits of hairspray and you are done!

I was going through our photo archives today and found these shots I never published from our trip to San Miguel de Allende last year! I can’t wait to go back. Wearing a flannel shirt with a thrifted tee, the bustier is by Zara (similar here), Zara heels, and 7 For All Mankind skinnies.

WORKOUT SHOPPING LIST

Click on the items for more info!

Shopping for workout clothes is a hundred times more fun than shopping for regular clothes to me. Maybe it’s because you don’t have to feel as guilty about it. You’re doing something good for yourself! I want to go crazy and order every single thing from Michi and Lucas Hugh but I will try to restrain myself.
