Hello! Even though Spring is not quite in the air yet, I had a very colorful weekend. Did you?

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!



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.

lemon yellow + bright blue



I have wanted to do a lemon yellow + bright blue combination since  Gina’s comment on my peach + turquoise post. Lemon yellow + bright blue is such an easy warm weather combination, don’t you think? The weather in New York has been very warm and incredible this week. I’ve had the luxury of leaving work a bit early everyday and walking around the city, which has been so vibrant and alive. I love this city so much sometimes, still.

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.


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

B is for…




and Boston! We’re heading there for the weekend to meet my sister and her husband. We are staying on a small houseboat in the Boston Harbor! I have never been there and am so excited to explore, go out for fancy dinners and hang with my favorite people on the planet.

Here are some other things I like that start with B.

Fall Looks I Love

Labor Day pretty much shut off Summer in New York City. Since it has been cold and rainy all week, I have been scouring the internet for Fall clothes and I came across whole looks that I adore. You know what? I think I’m kinda ready for the season change. Let’s do it!

Vintage Shoes

The past week has been all about shoes. I have been thinking about what kind of shoes I wanted to wear with my wedding gown for several months, but didn’t start really looking until about a week ago. I started off knowing that I wanted something fun and wasn’t very fond of the “Bridal Shoe” (white, satin, usually with rhinestones), so I started perusing Etsy for vintage shoes. Above are a few that I loved and didn’t buy. Not all of them necessary fit in the wedding category, I just bookmarked shoes I liked that I came across while searching–which is kind of the beauty of Etsy shopping, isn’t it?
