Reese’s Rustic Retreat

DIANI customer, Reese Witherspoon’s home was just featured in Elle Decor and I couldn’t wait to take a peek at her Ojai, California pad. It was exactly how I envisioned it: Feminine, homey, eclectic and filled with family love.

Pale and Interesting

I’m loving this photoshoot in the August issue of Town and Country. It’s understated and cool and the boots are hot! And, we have some just like them at DIANI! My faves are Alberto Fermani’s chocolate suede knee highs.

Houndstooth, baby!

Knowing that tweed would once again be a fashion highlight this fall, I seized the opportunity, while in Ireland, to visit the Tweed Factory in Donegal.  What started out as a simple trip, turned into an all day adventure: getting lost down rain soaked country lanes, halted by sheep crossings, and the necessary “Pint Pit-Stops” (my boyfriend had to twist my arm for those).  In the end, the old-world, clanking machinery of the factory, heightened my love for tweed, and seemed to cement it as a timeless classic.

Home Sweet Home

After several weeks of traveling, (which has been amazing) I’m so excited to be home, unpack my bag and hang my hat. It’s made me feel like nesting and re-organizing and dream of ways I could improve my haven. Here are some of my favorite homes and ideas.  I wish I could have them all in my abode… dare to dream!

Wee Ireland

Although I am half Irish (on my mother’s side), I’ve never been to the Emerald Isle.  But, I am happy to report, that I just got back from a trip with friends, to my half-ancestral homeland.  We stayed in a Georgian Manor, walked the downs of Donegal in the rain, saw incredible views and ancient monuments.  Oh, and we also ate way too many potatoes, sat in countless old pubs, and drank countless pints of Guinness and Bailey’s and laughed till our sides hurt.  All of this, bookended by classic Irish live music in Dublin.  I can’t wait to share it all, but here is a snippet, just to get started.  Stay tuned for more!

Road Trip to the Rockies

Taking a flight, and flying above it all, is definitely the quickest way to get to wherever you’re going.  But hitting the road always cements a bounty of memories, that no airline ticket can buy. Happy 4th from Colorado!
