Summer Lovin'

#2 {via} and all others {via}

Memorial Day weekend is HERE... for me at least! I am taking the next 2 days off and turning the long weekend into an extra extra long weekend :)

I am off to Washington D.C. on a red-eye flight tonight to meet friends and reminisce on our magical time together in Europe 2 years ago. It still seems like yesterday. There's nothing like a weekend with dear friends.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I'll start up blogging again when I return.

Don't forget to follow me on Blog Lovin' pretty please! xo

Happy Happy Weekend

Okay... It has been a major blogging day. I just keep running across lovely little things and want to share before I forget the context or why I love it so much at that very moment. Here are a few pictures that make me oh-so-happy that it's Friday.... Happy Weekend :)

Keep Out The Light

Keep Out the Light, a solo exhibition of paintings by Richard Colman, opens this Saturday at New Image Art Gallery.

I am more than a bit interested in going to check it out! :)

Jewelry Obsession

Leviticus Jewelry: Basically I am in love. I want a necklace harness in a major way. Let's be honest - I really want everything on this site. It's incredible.

"The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created—created first in the mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination."

- John Schaar, futurist

Chanel Resort

1st image {via} all other images {via}

Everyone has been raving/blogging about the Chanel 2011 Resort collection - and I must agree, it was beautiful! It made me want to pack up and go on a week-long cruise in a tropical destination. Budgets and work schedule conflict a bit with that dream, but perhaps someday...

Small & Quaint

Located in Barcelona, Spain, this apartment won the international competition on Apartment Therapy for small spaces. The entire apartment has so much charm - I especially love how the bed has its own little nook.

3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010

Most days I prefer to throw a bit more edge into an outfit with moto boots or a collection of rings and chains, but sometimes I am reminded (in this instance, by 3.1 Phillip Lim's Resort 2010) that a simple classic look is hard to beat. I would wear any of these looks in a heartbeat:

“In a jump, the subject, in a sudden burst of energy, overcomes gravity. He cannot simultaneously control his expressions, his facial and his limb muscles. The mask falls. The real self becomes visible. One only has to snap it with the camera.”
Philippe Halsman, Bridgette Bardot, 1951

Mmm mm good!

Let's get Crafty.

My mind keeps wandering to home decorating today for some reason - this morning it was shoes and right now it is curtains, pillows, and general crafty things to do around the house. I love the prospect of having a new blank canvas to work with come September. I love my bedroom now, but I was constrained to white walls and white carpet by our landlord. I can't wait to create custom everything (budget permitting) in our next humble abode.

Strong Brows

I love her BROWS! For so long it was "less is more" in terms of the eyebrow - but there is something so strong and amazing about a thick shapely brow and I am so happy that the "less is more" is a thing of the past. Unfortunately, a brow like this is not in the cards for ME... But I can always admire.

jcrew vintage-esque jewels

I am in LOVE with all of J.Crew's new jewelry. It just all looks like those pieces you want to wear every single day - and each one is just as great on it's own as they would be all piled on together.

Future Gardens....One can only hope!

I look forward to the day when I suddenly begin to enjoy gardening - perhaps when I finally get my own place or a house? I would love to create interesting and innovative escapes like these:
