Styling tabletops and entertaining in my home has always been a passion of mine and something I want to include more of in my life. I love an excuse to gather friends and family in a beautiful setting, around a table of delicious food, for the purpose of laughter, storytelling and mutual encouragement. It’s amazing how intentionally placing a simple floral arrangement, beautiful dinnerware and layers of table linens can evoke just the right atmosphere and mood.
Sunday we’re hosting our annual family Easter brunch and I wanted to put together an earnest table that’s inviting and peaceful. A couple weeks ago, I has the pleasure of working with local Dallas photographer, Christina Childress, to bring my vision to life. And I’m excited to be working with Christina over the next year to share some other tablescape inspirations with you.

We’re not at Coachella, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sport a little festival style. Fringed leathers, distressed denim, pom pom embellishments and bright colors are exactly what we need to embrace the über cool and effortless mexicali style.

This spring I’m looking to comfy separates in an array of cool neutrals to build out my wardrobe. By sticking with a simple color palette and classic silhouettes, I can invest in pieces that I know I’ll love for years to come.
On top, I’ll be wearing long tees and loose silk blouses. Pairing them skinny jeans, boyfriend shorts and on-trend midi skirts will give me a variety of outfit options. Maxi dresses are also perfect for that effortless look. Accessorize all these with a black and white striped scarf, white jewelry and the über popular panama hat. Flat booties, trendy sneakers and throwback Birkenstock sandals will be my shoes on regular rotation. And don’t forget a chic raincoat for those spring showers and cooler nights!

I love a good designer / retailer collaboration. It’s such a great way to add great designer pieces to your wardrobe, but at a very affordable price. As part of my partnership with Kohl’s, I received a sneak peak at the new Peter Som for DesigNation collection that hits online on 4/7 and then in-store and online on 4/10. The pieces are inspired by the easy-breezy St. Barth’s lifestyle and they are definitely resonating with my new-found, casual-chic style.
I received three articles from the line and wanted to share my favorite, a fun graphic tank, worn here in this post. The pineapple motif is one of my favorite trends this spring and I love Peter Som’s rendition. Whether it’s paired with denim cut-offs, printed pants or thrown over a cotton maxi dress, this is one graphic tee I know I’ll be wearing a lot this season.
I also received this flirty graphic dress and colorful striped romper. They’re definitely the kind of clothes that make you feel happy and carefree. The effortless style that Peter Som brings to his DesigNation collection is exactly what I am looking for this spring and summer. I can’t wait to check out the rest of his collection in person. Lucky for us, we can shop the pre-sale on 4/4 and 4/5! Check it out here >> Peter Som for DesigNation at Kohl’s.
