As usual I am in love with Erin Considine’s new collection. Her mix of metals and textiles leads to such a beautiful, organic and rustic marriage in jewelry. Also, can we talk about how beautiful the light and the model in her Spring 2013 Lookbook are? Swoon.

Imaginary Outfit: Spring

It has been windy, snowy and wet the past few days in New York. Here is an imaginary bright and fun Spring outfit to take the edge off.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends. Here are a few links I enjoyed this week:

Wild Belle’s new album Isles is streaming here and sounds like summer.

I love this oak bag.

I get to wear this gorgeous dress at my best friend’s wedding in June.

Speaking of, I keep thinking about my Matron of Honor speech at the wedding and have read this post (and cried) about seven times now. It is lovely and true and wonderful.

And, for fun, here is a photo of me and the best friend on Wednesday night behind the bookshelf bar The Quail built for our bonus room:

It is a beautiful piece and really deserves its own post, but this photo is too great not to share right now.

Have a good one!

 

Emeralds

emeraldPantone announced their choice for 2013’s Color of the Year was Emerald, describing it as

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty 

                                       that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”.

In that spirit, I did a little round-up of jewelry featuring emeralds. Some of it is dainty, some of it is over the top. All of it is lively, radiant, and lush.

Jewelry I Love Right Now

I had every intention of finishing up the Holiday Gift Guide posts I had planned, but instead I spent the end of last week and all weekend sick on my couch. I realize it may be too late for this holiday season, but I thought I would post some of the collections I have been bookmarking for the past few weeks. First up is jewelry!

1. Future Standard Astrology Necklaces

I have had my eye on these dainty astrological sign necklaces for awhile now. They would also make great birthday gifts.

2. Catbird Heart Ring

Sweet. Simple. Perfect.

3. Noble Town Vintage

I love the geometric shape and that they’d be swingy on my ears.

4. Collette Ishiyama

I have obsessed over the Collette Ishiyama collection since I saw photos from her Lookbook posted online months ago. Brass and stingray, so chic.

5. Stone and Honey

Love, love, love these long dangling earrings. The turquoise beads, clear quartz and black triangle combination is so perfect.

6. Fail Jewelry

I bought my bridesmaid’s gifts from Christine Fail’s Etsy shop and she couldn’t have been kinder or more gracious. I love so many of her pieces, but I keep going back to these bangles.

7. IS WAS + WILL BE

I love a statement necklace. I want to wear this one with a white v-neck T, a long cardigan, jeans and boots.

Advanced Style Video

These ladies have so much spirit! This video (via Nomadic D.) is amazing and so inspiring. It was made by Lila Plioplyte and Ari Seth Cohen  for The Nowness (Cohen also has a lovely blog called Advanced Style that you should check out).

I am immediately injecting more fun and color into my wardrobe. I am also going to pull out some of my bolder flea market finds more often and wear them unabashedly.

*Side note: I have been kind of obsessed with “Most Wanted” by The Cults lately, and have listened to it multiple times a day the past few weeks. It fits this video well!

Wooden Wonders

After posting about the Nada SAWAYA clutches I started thinking about how much I love natural wooden accessories. I rounded up some of my favorites on Etsy (I hope you like the new roundup format!) and am itching to buy all seven–if only those clogs were a few sizes smaller! Natural wood is such a laid back and perfect summer accessory.
