We search, we find, we Shopstyle

When ShopStyle reached out to me to create my own laydown photo, I was pretty excited about it. For one, it’s probably one of the very few things I’ll get to do that Miranda Kerr has also done. 😉

To create the photo, I had to think of a theme and sufficiently fill a lot of white space with some of my favorite products.

Lately, I’ve had a lot going on -especially with Livi’s birthday party, finishing the book, getting ready to move, and Winter Shape Up- and I find myself daydreaming about Italy. Just thinking about another trip instantly calms me down when I start to feel a little frenzied, and I thought “vacation” would be a perfect theme for my photo.

I put together some of my  vacation-esque outfits and goodies, and the Pilot kindly snapped some shots:

Here’s what I picked:

(if I couldn’t find the identical item, I linked to some similar ones. Many links are ShopStyle links, which is an awesome site to find anything fashion-related.)


Tie-die halter dress, handmade by a friend (similar)

Black and white maxi dress

Black bikini

Marc Jacobs hobo

The Pilot’s sunglasses which sneakily became mine

Cheetah flats

Chambray top

Gold statement necklace

Express editor shorts

Crossbody bag (similar)


Anthropologie vintage-style one piece (I am OBSESSED with this one)

My favorite facial spray, nail polishes and coconut bracelet

Tunic- old, from Spiegel

ikat shorts

Wedges (found cute TOMs on sale!)

Map scarf (from Stitch Fix)


Fedora (best 5 euros I’ve ever spent.. ok, tied with the double-chocolate gelato)

Shopstyle Tee

Cobalt skirt- old, from LOFT


Tiffany & Co necklace

If you could pick one word to describe your wardrobe’s theme, what would it be? I was surprised to see how many vacation-quality pieces I have. Guess living in a super warm climate will do that to ya 😉

    What a fun post to do! I have no words for my wardrobe–it’s still a work in progress after shaping up post-baby.
