While everyone and their grandmother is obsessed with Taylor Swift’s squad these days, I set my #squadgoals on a posse of LA-based designers, bloggers, photographers and creative types: Emily Henderson, Joy Cho, Bri Emery and Max Wanger. Their aesthetics are different (their talents are too) but there’s some serious cross-pollination happening in their bright and colourful, sunshine-infused looks. Which makes for some fun collaborations.
Is it the Southern Californian weather? Is it the LA creative community? Are they friends in real life? I don’t know.
But I do know that when you follow any one of their Pinterest posts to their blog, chances are there’s some sort of shoutout to one and other. All the sunshine and smiles make me want to add colour — and a bit of gold — to everything.

I live for oversized scarves. The bigger, the cozier, the better, as far as I’m concerned. The Sahara Travel Wrap by Vancouver’s own Bare Knitwear certainly fits that bill. Made of melange alpaca and adorned with hand-knit tassels, it’s the kind of thing I’d wear straight through until March and then on every plane ride I take for the rest of my life.

I can’t remember the last show I went to (I’m pregnant, I have a toddler, I pass out at 9:30 every night).
But I don’t need to actually have attended any of these shows in order to appreciate the gig posters by Milwaukee-based design studio Catharsis.
Medium poster-sized and $25USD a pop, they’re a bright, colourful way to capture a moment in time.
Even if you actually slept right through it.

Mustard yellow doesn’t sound all that glamorous but, boy, does it look it. It’s like a little bit of muted sunshine for your closet and your floor.
Wear: A day dress at Totokaelo (one of my favourite stops in Seattle).
Where: A kitchen (with art in it!) designed by INT2 Architecture.
