I know its not Wednesday, but here is my Woman Crush a day early. Meet Lex Weinstein. This brilliantly creative wanderer currently calls Byron Bay home. She left the 9-5 “stable life” in search of inspiration and adventure. If you follow her blog or Instagram its pretty obvious she has found just that. It has been an honor to watch this beautiful woman’s journey unfold. She has an air of confidence and self love that I truly admire. Here are some photos from her feature in Majestic Disorder Magazine, shot by the also super talented Carly Brown, who happens to be a great friend of Lex’s. (OK woman crush x 2)

Here are my favorite photos from Bahgsu Jewels new lookbook, Rainbow Warrior, shot on location in Hawaii. From the jewels, to the tropical & mystical locations, the exotic model, to the props, I don’t think this lookbook could get any better. And talk about a creative couple! While Maggie creates some of the most beautiful, magical jewelry I have ever laid my eyes on, her partner, Chris Del Moro happens to be a super rad artist and surfer who did all the body paint for this shoot. (I was lucky enough to receive an original piece of his for my Birthday from my boyfriend.) The styling is so perfect, and beachy bohemian. Clothes, accessories, and swimwear from some of my most favorite labels such as Spell Designs, Acacia Swimwear, She Made Me, and Wild & Free. Thank you all for being such big inspirations to me. Happy Tuesday!!!

It’s been a while, but  I have decided to dive into the personal outfit posts again…Besides The Be Kind Project tees (which you can shop here) this Spell tee has got to be my new favorite! Super comfy and I’m obsessed with the graphics and the vintage feel. And of course it reminds me of my favorite Stones song…The turquoise ring is vintage…I found this little gem in a thrift store back in Delaware. Mermaid and shell ring is by Echo of The Dreamer, a designer that has been a huge inspiration to me. Buddha necklace is an oldie but goodie by the one and only Vanessa Mooney. Turquoise necklace was a gift from my boyfriend’s mother from a swap meet in Arizona! I love how jewelry always has story behind it. After a day of running errands, we made it to the beach just in time to watch the beautiful sunset. Thank you mother nature!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Spell and The Gypsy Collective’s new look is getting me so excited for our roadtrip to Arizona to spend time with my boyfriend’s family for Thanksgiving. Each lookbook they create is nothing short of inspiring. Spell is a company that has greatly motivated and helped me tune into my own creative side over past few years and start my jewelry business. I always love how they style their pieces, mixing vintage with new, dressier pieces with comfy, worn in tees. Each piece in their new Spring/summer ’14 collection is just stunning.
