striped jumpsuit // spring styleLayering is great and all, but I’m happy Spring is here so I can bring out the jumpsuits and dresses… you know the all-in-one kind of outfits. One piece and you’re done.

Style at Home with Cotton

Being 100% cotton, it is a stylish mama’s best friend. The ease of care (with mess-ups bound to happen), the natural fibers, soft for mother and babe, and uncompromising on style as one of this season’s must haves.

I have to say they may not be your mother’s mom jeans but these high waisted beauties are on heavy rotation over here and surprise!… they are made of cotton.

style-at-home-3I spent a day at home with the oh so lovely Elle, of Solly Baby, a few weeks back and we chatted about work, balance, design, inspiration, and motherhood while I put their wrap to use, lulling Archer right to sleep. You can check out the full interview on their blog today and I picked a few of my favorite images to share with you here…

style at home: swan midi

So really I am just doing my part to fall into my new role.

Ok but seriously, I adore this skirt and will cherish these photos as our first family portraits. xo

smitten studio top 10 posts in 2013

2013 has been a wild ride! Here’s a round-up of Smitten Studio’s top 10 posts this year.

A Sunny Afternoon // Napkins & Serving Boards1. The launch of my line A Sunny Afternoon definitely takes the cake as one of the top moments of the year. See the original post here.

open shelving // cabin kitchen // smitten studio2. We finished work on the cabin (well, for now at least) that we slowly renovated ourselves, where the kitchen went from this, to this.

New Zealand Road Trip // Smitten Studio3. Rupert and I spent my birthday in New Zealand where we road tripped around the north island in a vintage Kombi. It was the trip of a lifetime (see part 1 & par 2).

DIY Garment Rack // Smitten Studio4. One of the top DIY projects from this year was this garment rack. (see all the DIY’s posts here)

stop-smell-the-roses-print15. My “Stop and Smell the Roses” print was featured in Glamour Magazine. I also spotted it in the home of Anika & Ken Yael Natori in Lonny Magazine, and in Julia Engel’s abode.

ikea tarva dresser DIY // smitten studio6. The other top Smitten Studio DIY of the year was this simple Ikea hack.

Style at Home // Sarah Sherman Samuel // Smitten Studio7. A big change in 2013 was with the selling of our home and the buying and moving into a fixer upper. Glitter Guide sent over a photographer for a Style at Home feature just weeks before we moved out. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to the first place Rupert and I owned together.

living room styling // smitten studio8. In the new house we started renovating by refinishing the floors, knocking down a few walls, and painting so that right now at least the living room is livable.

A Sunny Afternoon // Napkins & Serving Boards9. We sold out of the first collection of A Sunny Afternoon products much quicker then anticipated so I added new designs, stocked up on some of the favorites, and launched the winter collection with a pancake brunch with friends.

kitchen cabinets // smitten studio10. And finally, we started on the kitchen in the new house by completely gutting it and putting in new cabinets and countertops.

Happy Friday, and here’s to a happy 2014 to you all!

Glitter Guide Style at Home

glitter guide sarah sherman samuel Did you guys get a chance to see my Style at Home feature over on Glitter Guide yesterday? I was so happy when they asked me to participate because I knew that we were moving soon and I thought it would be a great way to say goodbye to the house. Of course I have taken photos of our home myself but have never had anyone else shoot it. I loved seeing it through someone else’s eyes (especially that of the talented Jessie Webster). I also shared a bit about my background, some more on A Sunny Afternoon and Smitten Studio, and how they all overlap.

smitten studio, a sunny afternoon // workspaceI also changed a few things in my studio since I last shared it… like painting it bright white. Head over to Glitter Guide to see the whole thing.
