Skin or Style?

At this point, I am not sure what I love more... this j.crew model's chic, carefree, natural look or her glowing flawless skin. Tough call. What about you? Skin or style?

Changing of Seasons (& Wardrobe)

As the last of the cold days are upon us (cross your fingers) I am looking forward to leaving my house without a jacket or scarf. Regardless of the season, I will always have a deep love for old rugged boots, flannel hats, and thick winter coats. Even though I am "itching" to get out of my winter accessories I wanted to share my final thoughts on this long bundled-up winter season we have had. Tah-tah warm woolly mittens... to my basement you go!

Heart of Gold

This heart of gold would fit perfectly around my pinky!

Desk Job

I sit at a desk for an extended period of time, which has taken some getting used to, but I'm getting there. I do not think sitting in a chair behind a computer all day would be nearly as bad and possibly even a dream come true if this were my set up!

This photo was taken by the talented Laura Resen, whom I discovered on Destined to Design. If you would like to see more beautiful interiors captured by Laura, please do so here. You are in for a treat!

If I had to choose one...

I wouldn't... I'd pick 'em all! Don't be fooled, this would only occur in my fairy tail world. In reality I couldn't afford any, but it's fun to make believe every once in awhile, wouldn't you agree?

I'm on the hunt for a new purse. Must be versatile, medium sized, with shoulder strap, and cute of course. Any suggestions?

Spring Flowers

Have I ever told you all how much I love spring flowers? Well, it's true... I do!

Street Style Jealousy

I've got a crush. I love everything about Rowie: her name, her hair, her boots, her jewels, her smile, her casual look, etc., etc.

Happy St. Patty's Day

My new love for Black and Tan's is perfect timing for an Irish celebration!

"For Japan"

Just purchased one of these Corter Leather "For Japan" bracelets. Each bracelet is $20 and 100% of the proceeds go to Red Cross towards relief efforts in Japan. At this time, I feel it's the least I can do. Do what you can... buy a bracelet.


Lemonworld by The National is the only song I care to listen to lately. I am trying to resist whenever possible as I am afraid of overdoing it before I see them live again this spring!

My Perfect Combo

A red poppy bouquet + a nontraditional cake + a chic, vintage wedding dress = my ideal wedding (plus good friends & family, homemade family-style pasta dishes, a band that doesn't stop, and and a few glasses of Italian red wine)

A little bit of Warhol's consistency is what I am needing in all aspects of my life right now. I typically pride myself on being consistent, however, as demonstrated by my inconsistent blog posts it is clear I need some major help!

Just Getting Cultured

This past weekend JB and I took a little trip to the IMA. The building itself is absolutely beautiful; huge, with large open areas, white walls, and gorgeous hardwood floors. I also found some pretty cool art! Above are my favorite pieces. I always find myself more attracted to modern art, as opposed to "ancient art." As you can probably tell from my terms and lingo, I am not that art-educated, but I am learning. That is with the help of JB who is an art major. Lesson #1, no cameras allowed, oops.

One of the greatest things about moving to a new city is discovering all it has to offer. Let's just say I have a long way to go, but my discoveries thus far have been fab!

Fresh Blooms

I am seriously considering taking a day trip to New York just so I can get myself some Saipua flowers. Their quality and color combinations are incredible. If I had all the money in the world I would be sure to have fresh Saipua flowers at all times! Wouldn't that be nice!

Happy Birthday Pops!

To my wonderful papa, Happy Birthday daddy-o! We will be sure to through a few back this weekend!

xoxo, your middle child

The Perfect Pair

Alexa Chung and Erin Wasson? Together? The only thing that could top that is if I were sandwiched in between them! Together or solo these two will always be fabulous!

One Year!

Happy Birthday to My little Green Clutch. She turns one today, can you believe it! I have had such a wonderful time with her this past year! She has been such a great addition to my small family of one! Now it's just she and I. She is there for me everyday and has allowed me to best utilize my creative juices. She allows me to say whatever I want, whenever I want, about whomever or whatever I want without any judgement and I love her for that. Thanks for everything My little Green Clutch. Can't wait to see what else I can fill you with!

Now please excuse me as I go indulge in this homemade coconut cupcake with a Bing cherry on top!

Speaking of Sun...

These fab suits would be the cherry on my make-believe cake of a getaway, would they not? Maybe even better paired with an extra large margarita in a sugar rimmed chilled glass? Oh and topped with a slice of pineapple? I am soo good at dreaming... it's actually frightening!

Great Escape

I love these delightful views of Mexico captured within the above polaroids. The thought of a warm, sunny, relaxing vacation cannot seem to escape my mind. Take me away!
