Picnic In The Park

This weekend we were lucky enough to have weather nice enough for a picnic in the park. We packed up some of our favorite snacks and headed to Alamo Square Park for a beautiful, relaxing afternoon. After filling up on some delicious food, we cuddled up under a blanket and took a nap in the park. It was honestly one of the best Sundays we’ve had in while. So often we get caught up in trying to make plans and filling our weekends with “new” things to do and forget how easy and inexpensive simple things like this are. If you’re in the SF area, it’s definitely a park I recommend checking out. Not only is the park itself beautiful, but it has a great view of the city and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful classic Victorian homes. I always like to take advantage of the semi-warm weather and put on a dress- So I opted for this striped Old Navy dress with my cashmere wrap to keep me warm. You can view my last Old Navy look here.

Art Wall Decisions

One decor element that Thomas and I both knew we wanted, was an art wall. Since we couldn’t paint the walls in our new place, we wanted to add something to the bare space. When Minted asked us if we wanted to incorporate a few of their art prints, we jumped at the chance. We’ve been working with Caitlin and she’s really helped us develop a color palette that Thomas and I both love. I can easily get carried away with girly prints and pink, so it was important for both us to choose prints we loved. We went through the site together and each picked a handful of pieces and then narrowed it down from there based on our favorites and which ones went well together. We pulled colors from each print, so that overall, they are cohesive.

I have to say, it was a tough decision because Minted has so many great pieces. I was a little worried that we weren’t going to be able to mesh our different styles together, but we did and I was really impressed with Thomas’s picks! Be sure to check back on Friday because we will be debuting our finished art wall and hosting an awesome giveaway from Minted!
