One Year From Today

On May 25, 2013, SHS and I will be standing in front of so many of our most precious and valued friends and family members becoming Mister and Missus!  It's been an amazing five years, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together.

The best really is yet to come.

Great Gatsby Trailer

The Great Gatsby is one of my all-time favorite books. I can't wait wait wait to see the movie when it comes out in December.

Until then, I'll be reading this while dreaming of wearing this.

Are you a Gatsby fan?

Monday Motivation

This is a short week as I'm taking off early for a trip to SHS' family cabin in Wisconsin.  I can't wait for a few long days of no cell phone reception, s'mores, and crazy curly hair (sharing a bathroom generally means no straightening/curling and I'm still trying to live down wearing make-up to the Friday Fish Fry).  Here's to a productive couple days of work and a glorious trip to the homeland.

Friday Favorites

Every summer I buy a new pair of sandals and wear them nonstop.  I bought these beauties at Targey and may need to go back for another color. . . 

Daydreaming about our wedding exit after we ordered our save the dates this week!

A breathlessly beautiful minty favorite--Diane Kruger at Cannes.

What have been your favorites lately?  Happy Friday!

Gold, Chandeliers, and Vintage Charm

Lately I have really been in a cleaning, renovating, decorating mood.  This gorgeous home from House Beautiful has me itching to find some new chandeliers and paint some old mirrors gold.  Sit back, grab a tea, and imagine coming home to this home everyday after work.

And I've seen this picture pinned a bazillion times.  Someday I will have a hall like this.

And of course, there's that closet obsession of mine.  Here's another to add to the dream file.


What are your favorite home inspirations lately?

Last Night at the Met

Last night was one of my favorite nights in fashion--the Met Ball.  This year you could even watch the live stream on vogue.com!  I just adore imagining what I'd wear if I got to go some day as well as lust after my favorite celebrity fashions.

Ever since finding this song, I am pretty Lana Del Rey obsessed.  This is also probably the only night of the year that someone can pull off a cape.  (Shown with Mr. Altuzarra.)

I really adore the light purple of Dakota's Louis Vuitton.

And since last night was a Gossip Girl night, you could get a double dose of dear ol' Mr. Bass if you also saw him strut the red carpet.

And of course, Chace didn't want to miss a good party either.

As the Met is definitely a chance for high fashion, Cate Blanchett's feather McQueen was a perfect choice.

There were a lot of sequins including on Nina Dobrev.

But Camilla Belle's Ralph Lauren stunner kind of stole the show.

As did Bianca Brandolini d'Adda--what an exit!

And although I'm not a fan of the top (you have this opportunity and wear a buttoned up jean jacket?!), I do like Jenna Lyons' skirt, especially if it was steamed a bit.

And another outfit that will be the talk of the town today--Beyonce in a very sheer Givenchy number.

And someone cough, cough, Anja Rubik was giving Angie a run for her money with a very high leg pop.

Who were your favorites?  What designer would you wear if you got the invite one day?

I've Joined the Club

There are tons of girls at my gym who always look great while working out.  Perfectly coordinated outfits of Lululemon and bright Nike Frees.  This club of women who look like they want to be at the gym have always fascinated me, but with my record of four gym trips last week I decided I needed to up my workout attire.  Enter yesterday's trip to Lululemon, the store many bloggers have already found light-ages ago.

And I have now been converted to the dark side with the purchase of these leggings.  I kind of never want to take them off.

And an real, supportive, cute, long-enough tankAlmost too good to be true.

Next on my list is this gorgey bliss bag in mint.

And this new love of mine is totally worth it if I continue to be excited to go to the gym.  Right?! ;)
