White is Right

Summer comes along every year, and I just want everything to be clean and fresh at home.  (The 103 degrees outside probably has a lot to do with it!)  I don't want clutter.  I don't want junk.  I don't want color overload.  I want white, white and more white.  

White is right for summer!

I am in the mood to clean out and go all minimal on you because there is just no other option when it's SO HOT outside!  

White, white, white...that's all I want.  (OK...maybe just a little bit of color too!)

Workspace Envy

I'm not only a huge fan of JCrew, but I'm a huge fan of Jenna Lyons as well.  She has helped the company take giant leaps in the right (style-wise) direction.  

And now that I have caught a glimpse of her office, I know why I like her so much.  That desk.  That chair.  Those inspiration sketches and pics.  Washi tape!  Yes, washi tape!  Everything I dream of in an office already setup for me to just move right in.  

Jenna, if you are ever looking for a replacement (you know, for the president of JCrew, no big deal) give me a ring!  I'll gladly take over the reins (if it includes your office.)

It's time for swimsuit season again, and this year I am obsessed with retro cuts and one piece wonders.  I tried my first retro suit last year but have to admit that they aren't the best for laying out and working on your tan.  But really, who cares about that?  Style doesn't need a tan...pff! 

So far this year, I'm declaring it the retro summer of the decade.  All I am finding is high waisted bottoms and one pieces that blow all the other suits out of the water.  (Did you pick up on that pun?  Ha!)  They are just so much more fun and have a ton more character than all the other suits.

When I browsed Anthropologie's collection this season, I was completely in awe and wanted all of them.  (Too bad for that number showing in my bank account.)

But seriously, look at these suits.  

Even though I already got a new suit, I'm hoping the hubby will let me indulge in a second one just because he loves me.  (#3 is my favorite!)
