The Sunday 7 – Father’s Day!

My weekly Sunday 7 post - everything from fashion to project sneak peeks and inspirational things I heard this week. xo-S

18 June 2017 -

1. First of all, Happy Father’s Day!

I have a vivid memory of my father helping me do running drills in the 3rd grade because I had my heart set on winning the fun-run. When we told him we were selling everything to pursue our dream of running a business together, he told us we could live in their basement if needed and didn’t try to talk us out of it (even though we were completely crazy) – he taught me to work hard at everything I put my mind to and I am so grateful for that. I knew Syd would make a wonderful dad even before we were married. I was right! He is selfless, kind and works really hard for our family. Best of all, he is SO FUN. I love spying out our kitchen window to see him doing flips on the trampoline and the girls having a complete blast. The McGee girls (myself included) adore our Syd.

2. We shared our #canyonsproject Webisode and Tour (123) and they were a big hit!

This project was a bit more rustic than is often requested of us and we loved getting to do something different. My design process is and always has been that we take our client’s style wishes (modern, traditional, etc.) and create our take on it.  My hope is that you can always recognize a Studio McGee project, but each has its own personality!

3. We head to LA for the Dwell panel I’m on about Building Your Brand through Instagram…

I’ll be wearing this dress. I’m still deciding on shoes (suede/tassels and both are on sale).

4. Apparently I can’t stop buying things with flutter sleeves.

This t-shirt is 100x cuter than your average tee.

5. Now that it’s summer I’m all about the spray tan life.

Why do they make you feel like a million bucks?! I’m obsessed with tan towels when I don’t have time to be high maintenance. Also, this bronzing powder (in Laguna). Always.

6. We just got the photos back from the parade house!

We’ll be doing the tour (with sources) soon, but until that time here’s a peek of me pretending to fluff a pillow with stiff arms.

7. I don’t know about you, but I love listening to podcasts!

listened to one recently that I can’t get out of my head. My favorite quote from the episode is, “There is no future moment where I will have the ability to have more capacity for joy than I have right now. My capacity for joy is at full capacity from the minute I’m born.” I love this because sometimes I get caught up in thinking that I’ll be happy when I achieve or get something, but that’s not true! My capacity for joy is the same then as it is now and I love that shift in perspective. Hope you all have a great week! Xo
