As a thank you to everyone who visits the blog, I’ve put together a little swag bag from some of the goodies I got at fashion week! I actually got the idea last September from a fellow blogger who I noticed kept asking for an extra this or that for her followers when we were at different events. I immediately felt bad that I’d never done that for you guys! So here we are! Just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter by liking my facebook page and following on instagram. After that you’ll unlock more entries if you’d like a few more chances to enter! I’ve included a full list of everything in the bag below.
After a cold and rainy weekend, the only thing I wanted to talk about today is shopping for spring! I’ve been busy planning as many trips as possible this spring, and I even packed yesterday for our Sea Island trip that isn’t for another 2 weeks. That’s how excited I am for some sunshine!
One of the biggest trends this year that I keep noticing everywhere is gingham. Personally I think ever since the Miu Miu gingham campaign in 2012, gingham has been creeping more into more and more pieces. Gingham used to be limited to maybe a button up or pair of shorts. But come spring ’15, it is one of the biggest prints for pretty much everything. We’re not in Kansas anymore folks.
Fur Coat: Asos (on sale but only a couple of sizes left now), Sweater: Old Navy, Jeans: J. Brand, Boots: Chanel (my early Valentine’s present from Charles!), Bag: Celine via Bella Bag borrowed for fashion week
There is something so magical about Central Park, in the snow. Well, personally I’m also obsessed with it in the fall when the leaves are turning orange … (I pester my friend Amanda who lives a few blocks away to send me photos nonstop in the fall, asking her updates for foliage details, seriously) … and I also just LOVE it in the summer when everyone is out on their blankets reading books and having picnics. (Seriously want this aerial Gray Malin print of Central Park in the summer. Anyone want to get it for me?) But the snow … …
Today I am thrilled to share some inspiration for my soon-to-be newly renovated office! (Scroll to bottom for “before” photo!) I have been working with Devine Color for the past few months to come up with the perfect color scheme to match some of the furniture I already have and the general feel I am going for.
Before I dive right into the look I’m going for in the office, I thought I should tell you a little bit about Devine Color and why I really wanted to work with them!
1. Discovery Cards: For starters, Devine Color has an amazing system for choosing paint color with their discovery cards. Have you ever agonized over paint swatches for days, or worst, just picked a color blindly because you couldn’t bare to drive back to the paint store to get more samples? Once, I actually just … Read More
I haven’t done a DIY post in forever, but this one I just couldn’t ignore. For whatever reason, I cannot get this “Do Not Disturb” hat out of my head! It’s probably just a case of spring fever, but I seriously have to get my hands on it. I’m envisioning a beach scenario with a good book, big sunnies, and the fabulous go away message scrawled on my big floppy hat. Of course, once I realized the hat in that pic above was $440, I decided there has to be a plan B. I can’t justify spending $440 on a hat, much less one that is intended to be on a beach with sunscreen stickiness.
