Life's Little Details

"The details are not the details. They make the design." -- Charles Eames
Happy Labor Day! I hope you're enjoying the long weekend. Have you done anything terribly fun or exciting?! Do tell. I'm sure the last thing you plan to do is stay cooped up inside on this glorious holiday and read blogs, but in case there are some of you out there who prefer to relax and unwind online (guilty), here's a simple Instagram update -- they're the details that make this life a whole lot sweeter.
Pictures from this past Friday's Koko Head hike. Three days later and I'm still feeling the burn. Yikes!
What to do when Flyboy's away? Organize my closet and accessories, of course! We'll see how long this lasts...
A Labor Day bouquet. // The most generous and thoughtful care package from Alex of Tangerines & Tulle. You made my day!
Absolutely smitten with my Truffle Clarity Pouch. It's perfect for the beach! // A very addicting sweet treat.
A few of the Kukui Nuts Tripp insists on bringing in the house every time he goes outside. // How could I be mad with a face like that?
I like to hold family meetings on the living room rug. Beesly takes these canine-friendly conferences seriously, but thinks a West Elm pouf would make it more comfortable for the entire family. I couldn't agree more!
Design Darling goodies. // I definitely took advantage of the latest Kate Spade sample sale. It was time for a bigger wallet.
O Captain! My Captain! I had to snap a picture with his snazzy new rank. // I'm crazy about this utterly charming French Hen at J.Crew.
Making time for snail mail. // I'm the nerd who still plans/irons/preps her outfits for the week.
Vivid Lime Ballet Flats?! Get outta town! // "I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal."
And now that you've got your bloggie fix, step away from the computer and do something delightful. I'm hoping for a little one-on-one time with the sun and a dash of productivity. After all, Type-A(shley) firmly believes that Mondays are meant to GSD, or get stuff done. Since this Monday is a holiday, I won't hesitate to mix business with pleasure.

Happy Monday!
Pin It!


  1. Ashley, would you ever consider teaching a little seminar (webinar?) about blogging? Or doing a post about blogging? I think everyone here would agree that your blog has something special and inspires us to be better bloggers too. Tips could include: how to make your own background on blogspot, how to host contests, how to choose a design or theme for your blog, and other do's and don'ts. Just a thought. Happy Labor Day weekend!

  2. I love your instagram updates!! Your daily life is so bright and colorful. Very cheerful! Happy Labor Day to you!

  3. Love seeing all these little snapshots of your life! That organized closet has me beaming in pride!

  4. nice pics... hope you had a great long weekend!
