monday pinterest pairing

I'm loving these two images together... one very large scale print and one much smaller and more traditional, but both equally effective and visually stimulating.  Though the palm print isn't quite my speed, I'm kind of obsessed with it here.  I've said it before and I'll say it again... wallpaper in the powder room is absolutely a trend I can get on board with.  What do you think?

Hope you are all having fabulously fantastical sparkling weekends... tomorrow is my birthday, so this evening is dinner with the best of friends/pretty bubbly drinks/and a few choice dance moves.
Here's to a year full of new opportunities, taking chances, enjoying all the little things... 
and making each day count.

Needed something bold to start the week right... love these two images together.  Nothing like layered leather, arm parties, bold typefaces and strong coffee.

outfit translation: orange crush

sweater and necklace - jcrew

Wore this punchy sweater/necklace combo this weekend... (forgive the awful iPhone photo.)  It's a little brighter than my usual outfit choices, but the gorgeous weather has me adoring color... It feels a tad bit daring and just enough out of the ordinary.  For similar reasons, I am loving this kitchen- with its uniquely colored cabinets, and that rug... a completely unexpected combo that is kitchen perfection in my book.  

Happy Monday everyone.

follow friday round up

So last Saturday, I jumped a little further outside my comfort zone and participated in this month's blog brunch.  It was a great conversation about blog design, and gave me lots of ideas on how to spruce this place up a bit.... and I made lots of new blog friends as well.

Came away from it completely inspired and ready to hit the ground running... which is just what I needed really.  Lately I have had so many ideas swirling around in my head... seeing all the great things these other bloggers are doing really inspired me to take steps to put those ideas into action.

And so, today I thought I'd do a "Follow Friday" round up.  Below are just a few bloggers I "met" who are totally and completely inspiring.

Joelle of A Charming Occasion

Rebecca of A Daily Something

Amy of Parker, Etc

Amanda of Amanda Genther Design Studio

Hope you enjoy... and that you have something wonderful planned for this weekend!  I'm going to be working on this blog, spending quality time with friends, and hopefully getting outside to enjoy the nice weather!

Wishing you a slightly strange and absolutely amazing tomorrow.

shoesday tuesday

1 - 2 - 3 - 4

This Tuesday, I'm LOVING these Rag & Bone booties... way over budget but I'm thinking it's okay to dream on shoesday.  In a perfect world, with a perfect closet, this is how I'd wear them.

I'm currently enjoying a perfect end to my Tuesday, reruns of Friends coupled with Rioja and the roommate.
Hope your shoesday is just as lovely!

Burlingame Sofa - Dering Hall

It's always rough going back to work after an extended weekend... and so this morning, I'm dreaming of lazy Spring Saturdays and pretty pink things.  Hope you all had wonderful weekends full of family, good food and just enough loveliness to carry you through the week.

shoesday tuesday

shoes- zara, desk image via pinterest

In an effort to reclaim Tuesdays and rescue them from their utter blandness, I decided to deem them something more fun.  Originally I was going to go with boozeday-tuesday, but thought this might be against my best judgement.  Cruiseday-tuesday seemed entirely impossible, and juiceday-tuesday just wasn't enough fun.  And so, shoesday-tuesday was born.  (I swear, this post on The Man Repeller is entirely coincidental... I didn't see it until halfway through posting, and I have the g-chat (brainstorming session) history to prove it!) That being said, I realize now that it's not (apparently) entirely brilliant or revolutionary, but I like it and it works and it's likely here to stay.

Happy Shoesday.
