My second outfit collaboration with LÄRABAR was based on its Key Lime Pie flavor. Beth paired this Lacoste polo shirt with some summery shorts and a simple cardigan et voilà! this preppy/retro vibe was born!

I grew up in Connecticut where preppy-ness prevailed and people would totally wear an outfit like this on a daily basis… well maybe not entirely in lime-green, but wearing this outfit was a serious throwback to my East Coast days.

My family has had this croquet set forever… probably before I was even born! All these years it’s been taking up space in the garage until tadaaa I finally found a use for them.

Crossroads Camp 2014

Every year, Crossroads Trading Co. holds a retreat, Crossroads Camp, for all its store managers. The Style Council gets to attend part of the camp, so this year I took a trip with a few other blogger babes.

Crossroads Camp was held at Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, California. There’s really no way to perfectly describe the ranch. It has gardens and farmers and animals, but it’s also a conference center with meeting rooms, etc. I know it sounds like mixing two completely different genres (which it is), but somehow it works. The ranch even has cabins to stay overnight. It really felt like camp… only better.

I mean who wouldn’t want to stay in a cabin like this??

The evening started off with a panel where we talked about trends, Crossroads Trading and where we thought the fashion industry was headed. Then there was a wine & cheese reception.

We had a huuuge family-style dinner. Since the ranch has its own gardens and farmers, everything the cooks prepared was as farm-to-table as you can get. I was in heaven.

Girl’s Got Style: Léa Seydoux

If there’s anything more heavenly than a French babe, it’s a French babe with style. And cute bangs. That’s exactly what Léa Seydoux is to me.

I first discovered her a few years ago when I watched the movie Midnight in Paris (one of my absolute favorites!). She has such an awesome, laid back style. I can’t pull off the sans-makeup-still-chic look, but man this girl can rock it!

Outfit: Inspired by LÄRABAR // Cappuccino

As someone with a truckload of sensitive tummy issues who eats (primarily) gluten free and vegan, it’s hard for me to find snacks that fit my dietary requirements. LÄRABARs are one of my favorite go-to snacks that I eat on a regular basis. Each of their flavors contain no more than 2 to 9 ingredients and they’re gluten free, grain free, non-GMO, soy free, dairy free and kosher (phew!) buuuut most definitely not taste free!

I recently collaborated with LÄRABAR® to create 3 LÄRABAR flavor-inspired looks. Beth Jones used her super styling talents and helped me co-style each outfit using items she found at Crossroads Trading. For the next 3 weeks, I’ll be releasing one of these outfits a week. The week after that, I’ll post all the outtakes. Sound good? Good.

First up: Cappuccino. For the Cappuccino flavor, I wanted a mood that was light, airy and flowy. Beth pulled this gorgeous BCBGMaxazria dress that was spot-on with my aesthetic.

I shot these photos at Blue Sky SF, which is quickly becoming my favorite studio to shoot at in SF. It has a LightGrid Studio and a Daylight Studio. I shot in both studios.

Shooting in the Daylight Studio was pretty easy for me since I work with all-natural light 99% of the time. I must admit I was a bit nervous to shoot in the LightGrid Studio as my knowledge of studio lighting is extremely limited, but the way that it’s engineered, all you do is choose what type of lighting you’d like on an iPad; no manual setup necessary! It made it so easy. If you’re in need of a studio in SF, definitely check this place out.

Looking back on: June 2014

I always feel busier in the summertime than any other time. I think it’s because it stays light outside so late, I’m always inspired to create more (more daylight = more time to create, amirite, overachievers? ;)).

In June, I attended a few lovely events (including a little trip to Sonoma with the Crossroads Trading Style Council & team members… full recap will be on the blog next week) and I met some very talented creative people (the amount of talent in the Bay Area continually blows me away!).

My pal Victoria opened up her first brick & mortar shop, Wallflower, in the Mission District of San Francisco (2391 Mission St. if you’re in SF). I am so excited for this gorgeous gal and her new creative ventures.

A few essentials I took with me when packing for Sonoma.

So much to love about this house. How ’bout those curtains?!

I always feel better after I organize my workspace.

How my first day of summer went. Pure bliss.

I finally met the amazingly sweet and talented Katie of Katie Dean Jewelry. How gorgeous was her set up at BellJar?

A little #tbt to the year we got Aubrey.

Inside the most gorgeous little cottage at Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma.

Cards from friends are my favorite. Especially when they have pretty quotes on them like this one.

Don’t forget you can follow along the daily fun with me @drifterandthegypsy on Instagram. I’m taking off tomorrow for the long weekend we have here in the states, so I’ll see you all back here on Monday!
