When I set out to design and decorate #craftandcouturecasa I envisioned lots of special touches with handcrafted appeal. Pieces that were simple in nature yet striking in form, materials and quality. Now being the luxury lover AND bargain hunter I am, I searched high and low for impactful, budget-friendly lighting accents. 

Very happy to introduce you to @mattalfordstudio — a talented Cali maker I recently discovered who just nails it with his pieces. Matt shared a reel recently showing his process. Such a treat to watch him in action and know the hands that built a very special part of our home. 

Discovering and celebrating local small business and artisans has always been very important to me. @coloratelier is another favorite, we turned to them for all our paint and plaster. Our walls, seen here in Limewash paint “Wabi”, create a warm and inviting scene. The subtle mottled tones create depth and texture without feeling overwhelming. 

Looking forward to sharing more details soon! We’re so close to adding all the finishing touches. What are you looking forward to seeing first?

The best foundations of an enduring wardrobe are clever, beautifully-designed pieces that offer ease and functionality. I’ve been carrying the new @cuyana System Tote for a while now and truly appreciate how all the smart add-ons adapt to my daily needs. The silhouette is simple yet such a statement. I know I’ll be reaching for this time and again. Discover your own system at the link in bio. What features are catching your eye? @cuyana #MyCuyana #FewerBetter

Pretty pleats spun from ♻️ plastic bottles. 💚

Extra busy week and it’s 90° out today so I’m posting another summer ensemble from our recent trip. Bag is made from recycled water bottles. ♻️ Very into pops of green and this lightweight & foldable material made it the perfect little packable travel tote. Will link this look (dress is currently on sale) in my bio and in stories!
Dream swimsuit with statement sleeves 🖤 Tagged more modest styles!

👡👡 First new pair of heels in over two years. Went with the shorter and more practical 3” height of the @aminamuaddiofficial Lupita mules which I find so comfortable. Can actually spend an entire day in these. With regards to fit, I took my usual Italian size and they’re perfect. Linking a roundup of heeled sandals I have on my wishlist!

From the weekend 🖤
Morning green juice ritual. 💚 I prefer mine slightly tart hence the two lemons. If I have ginger and other greens like spinach around I’ll add that as well. Using a pretty affordable cold press/masticating juicer. It extracts without blades, producing less heat and therefore maintaining more of the nutrients. Wanted to try this method out before investing in a really good one and I definitely prefer it over a centrifugal machine (which uses blades that in turn causes faster oxidation). Linked in my bio!

Health is wealth. My current daily supplements include:

@raeforwellness Women’s Multi and Hormonal Rebalance to keep my entire body + hormones in check.

@thenue_co skin filter for elasticity, brightening and to reduce blemishes.

@_dropi Cod Liver Oil to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, strengthen bones and keep skin hydrated and clear.

@gardenoflife Probiotics for my gut

@naturalvitalityofficial calm capsules to help with anxiety and sleep.

Generic Vitamin D supplements. We’re slightly deficient since we’ve been spending more time indoors this past year.
Weekend errands with #MyCuyana. I’ve waxed poetic about this Double Loop Bag for its practicality (all the convenient pockets!), simplicity and silhouette and I am loving it even more in this new Deep Olive hue. Such an elevated neutral. @cuyana #fewerbetter #minimalstyle

My go-to one-and-done outfit. There’s something rebellious yet sophisticated about a great jumpsuit. I feel most myself and confident wearing them, especially utilitarian styles like this one. They offer a sense of ease while being unexpectedly versatile and enduring. This one by @newbottega has so many thoughtful details, it can be styled in many creative ways. Paired it with flat chunky sandals for the season, but they will look equally fresh with boots in the fall or heels for dressy occasions. Always thinking about long term investment pieces vs trendy items.

Shared this look and more boiler suit options in varying price points in the @liketoknow.it app and link in my bio! Hurry, only one left of this exact one on sale: http://liketk.it/3hKyi #liketkit #LTKsalealert
