summer favorites

Summer is sort of like that favorite dream we all have and we all forget so easily. 
In this post, I just wanted to share what I do to cope with summer ending, the birth of a new season, and inevitable change. 



s a v e  and  l e t  g o

with fall comes the slow surrender of all things delicate. flowers wither, leaves collapse, and stems dry up. this summer, my mom cut our hydrangeas and used a flower drying technique to save the beauty of them even in their dying state. the result? a hydrangea dried, delicate, and ready to last through the winter in my room. does anyone else feel the need to completely organize and rework their room before September begins? it's become a habit of mine over the years. 

design tip:
silver trays bring an element of timelessness and makes any boudoir feel like its been sent from an old Paris boutique. i added my favorite perfumes, lotions, and scents to my tray to keep the feminine feel alive. 



c o l l e c t  the  t a n g i b l e

one of the main reasons i have any sort of social media, is to keep my favorite memories in one organized place. but relying only on instagram to capture memories would be a tragedy. travel journals, scrapbooks, and collections are the best way to keep the sense of any memory or place alive. so i encourage you, dear readers, to keep on lugging that Polaroid camera around. spend money on film. go crazy in Michael's with scrapbook accessories. summer may be over, but the moments can still last.

organization tip:
without a planner, i would definitely be... lost. i rely heavily on both visuals and written instructions, and a planner is a mix of both. being able to write down everything i need to get done, while visually seeing what day i need to do it on the calendar, helps me enormously.  
oh, and the best way to cope with summer ending? the leaves turn hues and the apples get picked only once every year. so bring out the marshmallow sticks and use those ankle boots. you have one shot. make it count.
