I’m loving the new NEST | GATHER shop. It’s full of beautiful clothing, jewelry, art and housewares from some fave makers like Jesse Kamm, Kaarem, Tiro Tiro, Milena Silvano, Lauren Manoogian, Daughter of Wands and lots of others. The Seattle-based team of creatives behind NEST | TOGETHER opened this online shop and their styling is ace, of course. My current favorites are this amazing jacket, this cute black dress, this soft jumpsuit, all the jewelry, this dreamy pitcher and all the beautiful objects. More HERE.

I love this beautiful new summer lookbook from Bridge & Burn. I love the road trips that these guys take for their lookbooks — it’s fun to discover new places to go check out now after living here for six years. They always find the perfect spot and really represent life in the Pacific NW well — at least for me and a lot of my friends. My favorite pieces right now are the blue warbler hooded jacket, the fleer indigo dress, audrey navy linen shorts, axson dobby polkadot shirt and hawley navy crosshatch sleeveless top. More HERE.

Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you and hopefully some time off to relax and enjoy yourself. We’re going to be grilling up some pizzas at home and, as we do every July 4, sitting in bed with our dog, Zelda, while she is freaks out about the fireworks. Happy we have some sparklers this year! Have fun out there! xo Jen

Today is my birthday! This birthday giveaway finale is the biggest and most magical one I’ve had to date — I’m thrilled to share it with you! For a year or so, I’ve been trying to clear out psychic sludge, emotional baggage, looming anxiety, the envy monster, sadness fog, preconceived notions and knee-jerk reactions. It’s HARD. It seems like just as you’re getting a handle on one aspect — life springs a leak in another. At this point in my life I solidly know who I am, but I’m learning more about my boundaries and how to protect myself. I know I’m not alone and thought it would be nice to share some things that might help people feel more powerful and protected. Talismans, tools and inspirations from good people. ♥
UPDATE: Congratulations to Caitlin Marr! She won this epic prize. THANKS, EVERYONE!!
