A quick little post for today as I have to run out the door to get some stuff done for work…
A few weeks ago I tagged along with Justin on a work trip he had to take to Deer Valley and I’m so glad I did. I had heard great things about the Montage where we stayed and oh my gosh did it ever live up to the hype. Everything about the hotel is perfect, from the super cozy rooms complete with fireplaces and extra large bath tubs, to the five delicious restaurants, to the 35,000 square foot (seriously!) spa where I had the best massage of my life – it was also maybe the most expensive massage of my life but I think it was worth it.
At night there is live music and a s’mores bar, and even though I didn’t hit the slopes while I was there I heard that the skiing was wonderful. Honestly if you ever get the chance to visit this hotel even in the summer – go!
Maybe it’s because it was just Valentine’s Day or because I’m currently decorating for the new baby’s nursery (which is so fun but so expensive…why are baby things so pricey?) but I’ve had all things pink on my mind and on my Pinterest board for the last little while. I guess it also has to do with the fact that we’re coming into Spring soon and a lot of the shops are showing pretty blush colored dresses and tops, though I’ve also been seeing a lot of pink in interiors lately and I’m really liking it.
Having a little something pink in your decor feels so unexpected but can look very sophisticated and not overwhelmingly feminine when done in the right way. I swear! The key is to keep the rest of the look relatively understated or neutral, or to throw in some darker colors to help ground the look. A good way to incorporate a little pink into your life while keeping things from being too sweet is through art – I really love this painting and think it would look so cool in just about any room. The pink things that started my obsession are these chairs in this pink fabric, which I had planned to order for our old house but ended up cancelling since they were a little big for the space (plus they were backordered for months which is frustrating). I’m determined to have them in my life at some point when we have more space, but for now I’ll focus my pink obsession on the nursery.
There’s also a way to wear pink without look too saccharine and sweet, as shown by a few of the incredibly chic girls in the images below. The key is to either keep the pink pieces tailored or the rest of the outfit not too perfect looking (messy hair, a half tucked shirt, etc). There are some women who can really pull off the perfectly polished, super girly pink look (Julia from Gal Meets Glam comes to mind) but I find that I look like I’m trying too hard to look young and like I need to mess up my hair or grab an edgy accessory whenever I try on something too girly.
Scroll on for more pretty pink inspiration, and have a good day 🙂
Are you guys familiar with Tanya Taylor? I feel like I have heard of the brand before but hadn’t really looked into it prior to this morning when I was browsing Moda Operandi’s current trunk shows and came across this gorgeous dress. I did a little digging and found that not only is the designer a fellow Canadian, but that she’s dressed all sorts of amazing women like Michelle Obama, Aidy Bryant (are you a huge SNL fan, too?) and Anna Kendrick, to name a few. I found these images from the brand’s Spring 2017 ready to wear collection and felt like I just had to share in case you’re also done with winter and ready to start thinking about easy dresses and pretty prints. Her stuff reminds me a bit of a few of my favorite brands all rolled into one; I feel like I can see a bit of Tory Burch mixed with Saloni and Milly.
I kind of wish I wasn’t torturing myself by looking at all this stuff that I can’t fit into at 7.5 months pregnant, but maybe having this in my closet would be good motivation to get into shape once the baby comes? You can currently shop Tanya Taylor in a few different shops but Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus seem to have the best selections (or Moda for presale). Happy Monday!
