It’s an extra special Friday because today the much anticipated Gal Meets Glam Collection launches!!



My amazingly talented and super gorgeous (inside and out!) friend Julia Engel and her rockstar husband Thomas have worked tirelessly on this GMG Collection. So much love and so much time put in, and you guys, it shows. Not only are the dresses exquisite, classic, and timeless, they are also SO well made. Lilly and I stopped by Julia’s house yesterday and saw the whole collection in person. They’re all gorgeous and feel amazing!



In honor of the launch today at 9 am (Eastern) I’m wearing this floral GMG Collection dress named the Lauren. I pretty much want Julia to make it in every color under the rainbow. It’s feminine, luxurious, and pretty much my new favorite dress.



The Gal Meets Glam Collection goes live today on Nordstrom and on Gal Meets Glam at 9 am Eastern. I have a feeling the dresses will sell fast so I encourage you all to be ready! Congrats Julia!

I’m so excited to partner with Framebridge for Mother’s Day! They’ve been my go to for framing for the last 2 years! They’re website is really easy and fun to use (not to mention gorgeous!). And their custom framing is beautiful and high quality! With Mother’s Day less than a month away Framebridge is the perfect destination for special, one of a kind gifts.



Some of my most favorite art pieces in our home were made by my kids. These pieces deserve to be framed! And it makes Lilly and Fletcher so happy to see their art hung on the wall. Framed kids art makes for the best Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think?



There are two easy ways you can frame – 1) Upload a photo from your computer, phone, or instagram feed for Framebridge to custom frame or 2) Mail in your original art and objects for Framebridge to custom frame. They provide free, prepaid packaging!



Framebridge has a lot of handmade frame options to choose from. Just upload an image of the piece you want framed and you can see it in all of the frame options!



I actually find this tool kind of addicting. I love plugging in different pictures and seeing how they look in different frames. I love how this abstract by Fletcher turned out in the Marin Frame.



We spruced up our library area with some new pieces, too.



Lilly made this self portrait with her pastels and I framed it in the Stella frame using a personalized mat saying “Lilly (age 8)”. Loving this new personalizing feature they’re offering.



And this family photo was printed from my instagram feed! It’s actually of a Mother’s Day past and is so special to me. It’s in the Henry frame.



Live life. Frame more. – Framebridge’s motto, and I like it. A few dates to note – Mother’s Day mail in orders deadline is April 22, the digital upload deadline is May 6th! You can start framing right here!

I’m so excited to share that I’ve curated 4 spring looks on Nordstrom’s site! This was so fun to put together because obviously Nordstrom’s collection is vast and amazing. I combed the site for favorite spring pieces and then I built entire looks out of each of them. Here are just some of the favorite pieces from my looks…



white blouse, sunscreen brush, sun hat, woven bag, spiral ties, gingham swimsuit,

white sandals, pink skirt, pink earrings, sugar lip treatment, woven cross body bag,

white dress, platform sandals, white watch, palm shift dress, mesh bra,

orange earrings, leather tote, denim shorts, bronzing mousse, pink shirt, round sunglasses


Here is a glance at how it works. You click on one of my looks and it takes you to a page that looks like this. You can click on individual products to get more info on the right side of the page (for example the gingham swimsuit below).
