It’s time for another installment of Pinterest Productivity! Pinterest Productivity all started when I began to realize that I was pinning hundreds and hundreds of pins, and wasn’t doing anything with them. I mean, they’re lovely to look at, but what’s the point if I’m not going to put them to use. So in an effort to increase my productivity I decided to blog about pins I’d take from the screen and into real life.
This installment of Pinterest Productivity includes three Summer recipes I’m itching to try. The grilled chicken and corn salad, Parmesan Baked Tomatoes and Salmon Cakes are on my must make next week list. Once I make these lovelies, I’ll make sure to post them on Instagram and on the blog for your viewing pleasure.
Now, I challenge you to breathe life into three of your favorite Pinterest Pins!
Red Heels Zara (old) | Brandy Melville Sweater | Silky Urban Outfitters Shorts
I wore these shorts and red platform heels in Las Vegas last weekend and boy, oh boy did I make a great decision. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and the shorts made dancing so much better. If you’re heading out for a night on the town, I definitely recommend a pair of black shorts.

Not sure how the weather has been in your neck of the woods, but for us in Southern California it was been nothing but HOT, HOT, HOT! I’ve been slowly putting away my winter wares, but after this weekend I think they’re all going to the back of the closet for a very long time. So long faux fur, thigh high boots and knit sweaters – until we meet again!
Not so long to my faux leather leggings. I already decided I’m wearing those into Summer, I don’t care what anyone says about that. It’s happening.
When I started writing this post yesterday I thought I’d be sharing photos that have inspired recent changes in my style, but then I clicked through an Emerson Fry photo from my Pinterest board and the post took on a life of it’s own. I’ve come across Emerson Fry on many blogs that I absolutely adore, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I realized just how incredibly amazing their pieces are. As I started to click through and view each and every look and piece, I was absolutely mesmerized by their incredibly chic and classic aesthetic. What I love about Emerson Fry is that their pieces are great together or integrated with pieces already in your wardrobe. You can add in some wide leg jeans to lend a more boho look or a leather jacket for an edgy touch, the options are really quite unlimited.
I dare you to check out their clothes and not become absolutely obsessed with saving up to pick up a few pieces for Spring and Summer.
Side note: I’ve recently completely re-thought my approach to my closet. I want my closet to be a place I want to shop. Instead of storing clothes, I want to feel like I’m entering my favorite boutique each and every morning of my life. Now, I know this is going to take sometime, but I’m quite excited to start building an exceptionally curated collection. I’ve been selling many, many of my previous purchases to local thrift stores and on Poshmark, because to be honest for a long time I would buy pretty much everything that caught me eye. That time of my life is over, and I’m more focused on purchasing pieces I want to wear every single day of my life!
Enjoy Life Now This is Not a Rehearsal
View of Manhattan from the Brooklyn Bridge
There were flowers in bloom all over the city. So lovely!
I love all of the unique and colorful doors you come across in Brooklyn.
The view from Brooklyn Bridge Park. Always breathtaking.
I haven’t gotten around to painting much in the past few months and am hoping that this weekend I can change that. Lately I’ve been really inspired by pieces that incorporate clearly defined shapes with very abstract and colorful brush strokes. I’m hoping to create a fun piece for the bedroom this weekend! Hope you all have a lovely weekend and let’s all keep Boston in our hearts xoxo- Bettina

This past weekend was spent doing three of my favorite things: basking in the sun, shopping and eating. I got my tan on and got to spend quality time with my dear friend Katharine. It was gorgeous out in Palm Springs, the weather was warm but not too hot and although it was the weekend of Coachella it wasn’t nearly as packed as I thought it would be.
