A Polka Dot Jumpsuit

There will always be a soft spot in my heart for a jumpsuits, especially one with a feminine aesthetic like ruffles and polka dots, like our new Sanctuary jumpsuit for summertime. The fabrication, like most pieces from this line, is gorgeous in quality and the wide leg pant makes for an effortless fit. I am looking forward to wearing this number around the city with a pair of white sneakers and a denim jacket, or out to wine country with a little block heel sandal. Oh, and of course, I'll always top it off with a pair of vintage statement earrings and a vintage scarf!

Summer Mood Board

This season at Sweet & Spark we're saying hello to Summer with citrus colored florals, eyelet fabrics and nautical motifs. When concepting for our upcoming season, I was really inspired by colorful vintage Hermès dvertisements. Their editorial images have so much life and movement captured, they really feel like a perfect fit for our scarf collection and seasonal aesthetic. I always love including shades of pink into our color palette since it is such a brand color, and Jillian and I have both been crushing on lilac recently. The rest of our Summer color palette came from pulling some more inspiration images together that felt right, and eye dropping swatches for powdery blues, mossy greens and sunshine yellows.

From there, I created our "dream" jewelry collections, which means pulling antique and auction images from 1st Dibs and Sotheby's to give Jillian a clear buying map for what to keep our eyes out for. The main categories we laid out for the season were fruits, sea life creatures and other beach motifs like palm trees and flamingos. Along with our fashion categories, we really felt like good Summer staples should include oversized gold hoops, gold bangles and delicate layering necklaces.

Wedding Planning Update

I thought sharing our new bridal jewels would be a good excuse to give a wedding planning update! Things are coming along, slowly! Patrick and I have began reaching out to wedding planners and potential photographers first. We would love to start things off with a Summer trip to New Orleans to meet with planners and see who we find a good fit with, especially since we will be getting very close with this person and their team over the next year or so. 

Next, and what I'm most excited about, is taking a trip back to our old home; Manhattan. There's a lot to accomplish in the city like meeting with a photographer who I've followed for years for an engagement photo session, visiting a few bridal salons I have bookmarked and celebrating with old friends. In the meantime, we are trying to plan a little engagement picnic party here in San Francisco or wine country.
