Also in this current issue of Flutter is a bouquet story I styled with Holly Chapple‘s beautiful bouquets that she taught as part of Florabundance Design Days. She created one floral recipe and arranged the flowers in 3 different styles, a loose cascade, a traditional dome shape, and a loose organic shape. I styled the model with a taupe dress from Lovely Bridal LA and jewelry from Sophia Kaman. This was shot on location at Lotusland by my girl Lacie Hansen. Enjoy!
Also in the current issue of Flutter is this woodland tabletop I styled with the work of the amazing floral designer Francoise Weeks as part of Florabundance‘s design days. Shot in the incredible fern garden at Lotusland, I knew the second I say this enormous stag fern that this would be the perfect for Francoise‘s woodland inspired arrangements. I styled the table with simple taupe linen from Porch, driftwood benches from Elan Event Rentals, and teak chargers also from Elan. Valerie Rice of Eat Drink Garden made a simple pea salad, crostini, and cumquat drink to compliment the table design. In lieu of a traditional printed menu, Rebekah Miles painted on oversized tropical leaves. I love how this table turned out. And you can check out the full spread in Flutter Mag issue 6.
Who doesn’t love a little sparkle in their step? I’m digging these pretty neutral sparkly heels for the New Year. 1. T-strap rhinestone heels by Badgley Mischka 2. Sheer nude heels by Badgley Mischka 3. Crisscross sparkle pump by Guess 4. Strappy silver sandal by Jimmy Choo.
I love a good leather piece (especially when its a good faux version) and this skirt is the perfect staple for the “rough” Santa Barbara winter. I paired this flared leather skirt, available locally at Chapala & Parker, with a taupe and black turtleneck, hoop earrings, a cheetah clutch, and black oxford heels.
Chanel was right, a little black dress is seriously key piece in any stylish lady’s wardrobe. A couple of weeks ago I styled this dress with a chambray and a fedora for a day time look. This time, I styled this dress simply with an oversized sun hat and Frye boots. This would be perfect look for a cocktail party on a ranch or a casual morning at the Santa Barbara Polo Fields.
