People seem to either love being in front of the camera or behind it. I’m a fan of both. I’m thrilled when I’m able to talk about what I love in studio and I have a ton of fun obsessing over every detail at a photo shoot when I’m creative directing and styling. I feel very lucky to have opportunities to do both.
A few days ago I styled a series back-to-school trend spreads filled with outfits for the elementary school set. This outfit (fit for a leopard cub) is complete with faux leather detailing, and available at The Children’s Place at Brentwood Town Centre.
The spreads (like these behind-the-scenes pics) were shot by photographer Kevin Hill. And I can’t wait to see the finished product, which I’ll share soon!
P.S. Photo shoots are totally grammable so follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

I’m in the process of redoing my office (I’m always in the process of redoing my office). And I have a big empty wall that is just begging for a giant mural of some sort. Is this watercolour vinyl decal from Vancouver’s own Anewall the answer?
I’m leaning toward yes.

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web.
If you, like me, can’t get enough of painted hardwood floors, sparse furniture, high ceilings and a certain eclectic rusticness, then you’ll love My Scandinavian Home.
Named one of Domino.com’s top design blogs of the year, it’s filled with beautifully curated photos drawn from all over the decor-loving internet.
The aesthetic is one I love — a little shabby and old, a little sleek and new. It’s as cool as it is warm.
With angled ceilings, lots of sheepskin and the occasional Ikea piece, it’ll reinvigorate your appreciation for white walls. So bookmark My Scandinavian Home already and bookmark The Anthology while you’re at it.
[Images from My Scandinavian Home, naturally.]
P.S. Beef up your list of favourite links with The Anthology’s Bookmark picks.

The Anthology’s Put a Pin in it series does what it can to fuel your obsession with Pinterest.
I love the concept behind Kid & Coe — it’s like airbnb but with baby gates, high chairs and toy chests.
I haven’t yet stayed in any of their homes but boy, do they make me want to pack up the playard and trek across the globe.
Their Pinterest boards are as beautiful as their homes.
And some of them are quite cute to boot.
So put a pin in Kid & Coe and The Anthology too.

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).
Got the blues. A shirt (from Club Monaco) that matches your grandma’s couch and an icy blue Swedish room.
Veggie love fest. Brunch at the Bird’s Nest and shaved asparagus salad.
Killer view. The scene outside SFU’s harbour campus and the camp spot of my dreams (which reminds me of one we had on the beach in Oregon a few years ago).
Ring ring bling. Jewelled iPhone cases (from H&M) which I featured in a trend series I styled for The Province and a pair of sparkly earrings.
Picture this. Behind the scenes of a shoot I styled and a more traditional, but no less dreamy, workspace.
Crown jewels. A lace-looking necklace (from Plenty) and a royal beauty.
P.S. There are more photos where these came from so add The Anthology on Facebook and follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

Tomorrow I’ll be on The Rush sharing a few of my favourite made-in-Vancouver picks from one of my very favourite sites Etsy. These white-and-gold baby mocs by First Prints make the cut. And boy would they look cute on my little monkey’s feet.
