Animal Prints

I'm not really the animal prints (zebra, leopard, snake, anything) kind of girl, but I am liking this modern living space featured in Lonny Mag. I don't know if I could have it in my home (but then again, who knows - I really do kind of like it) but it sure is fresh!

Bohemian Love Affair

Now that's right up my block! (Or sandy beach, if I had one.) I love every aspect of this shoot.


Love it! I only wish I would have thought about this masked idea for my wedding. (I love a themed-out wedding with over-the-top extras!)

Check back a little later for another favorite wedding find.

Rodarte Beauty

There is something special about the Mulleavy sisters. Rodarte is so on point season after season. I love the styling they did for the Fall 2011 collection! So effortless and breathtaking!

(Is it evident yet that I'm drawn to orange-y tones of makeup and wind-blown hair?)

Bed Rest

Blogging has been a little sparse lately, and frankly it's because I'm so gosh-darn tired! This past week was a little exhausting, so all I've wanted to do is lay up in bed and nap. (I know you can't blame me because you wanted to do the same thing!)

I have been a little productive otherwise, but man, oh man - I needed some rest. Hopefully, I will be energized and ready to go for next week! (We'll see.)

PS - I would take bed rest with those white-washed brick walls and eclectic bedding anytime! And what - there's a view too!

Effortless Style

Even though we are on the last days of summer (well, I'm not really sure about that because in Texas, summer likes to stick around until mid October) I am still obsessed with the essential effortless summer style - cutoffs, silk blouse and a braid! So carefree that sometimes I think I could stay in summer forever and not deal with all that winter weather (again, here in Texas we don't get that much so it's not that bad!) But then my true love comes a calling, Fall, and I'm sucked into all the layers and pants and coats and hats!

Enjoy the last days of summer's effortless style and welcome fall's refined layers!

Monday Soak

I'm obsessed with the green!

Ahh - Is it really Monday again? I say we could all use a good soak in a stunning claw foot tub like my friends above. Anyone with me?

Laying Around

This week has been a little exhausting, and all I want to do today is lay all day in the bed with the hubby. That's my favorite kind of Saturday!

Magnificent, I Know

I'm not a big Kate Spade fan at all, but check out her NYC pad! Wow! I don't think it could get much better. Unless it was mine, of course!

I was never a huge fan of peonies . . . until recently! Now, I think they might just be my favorite flower. I love the wildness about them but also the symmetrical shape. (Great juxtaposition!)

Flowers can just make a girl happy - guys, take note! What is your favorite flower?

I'm obsessed! With the simple color palate, those pillows, the chandelier and of course the picture above the fireplace. How could you not be?

Tangerine Kiss

I'm not a big make up wearer to begin with, but when you toss in 100 degree temps and the blazing sun - I'm definitely not going to put extra layers on my face!

There is one thing I simply can't resist - tangerine lips! It's so vibrant and fresh. I just love the orange hue and am tempted to wear it all year long!
