{field trip} marimekko store in beverly hills...




Sometimes I get so tied to my desk—I get in the work zone and forget to leave my office all day. So, a few weeks ago, I decided that on Friday mornings, I'd start to make a habit of going to visit a shop, showroom, or other inspiring location that I've had on my "must-visit" list. It's a way of forcing me to get away from the computer screen and get inspired by real things in real life. And after two of my friends, Bri and Amy, mentioned loving the new Marimekko store in Beverly Hills, it was time to pay a visit....




The visit couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I'm working on a new project, and it's always inspiring to surround yourself with brands who consistently create a unique point of view. Marimekko's textiles have been a longtime favorite, and a visit to one of their stores is always a treat. 


And lucky me...there was a 40% off sale going on the day I stopped in, so I had to get this amazing dress. Yes, shopping for inspiration is kind of dangerous, too...
