Prince William and Kate

Congrats to the royal couple!  I can't wait to see her dress and hear the groom's toast.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

The Wedding



I am loving these sharply tailored blazers and feminine tops from Smythe Spring 2011.

Free People

I love this pocket belt from Free People, it is similar to the fanny pack but infinitely cooler. It would be great for traveling or going to concerts.


Ek Thongprasert

I love this lilac silicone gemstone necklace from designer Ek Thongprasert.   It's always interesting when designers play with our perceptions of beauty.

Friday Pins

My favorite pins from this week...



I love these easy, simple pieces from Parker.


Photo Preservation

I've been scanning my grandma's scattered photo collection all day.  It is so rewarding to be a part of preserving this family history, it also helps that the pictures are so adorable.


Satomi Kawakita

I love this pearl ring, it would make a lovely wedding band (albeit impractically delicate.)

Here are a few easy citrus drinks that I plan to whip up this summer...

The Salty Dog

4 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
2 oz. Hendrick’s gin
1/4 teaspoon salt mixed with 1/8 tsp sugar, for rimming

Pour all ingredients over ice cubes in a highball glass rimmed with salt/sugar mixture. Stir well & serve. Serves 1.

The Lemon Drop

2 cups frozen vodka
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1 lemon, thinly sliced

Combine the vodka, lemon juice, and sugar and pour into a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into martini glasses and garnish with lemon slices.  Serves 6.



These Camper Olivia shoes are so fun.  They would add such a punch of color to an outfit.



Shoshanna creates fun, flirty silhouettes without sacrificing proper structure or quality.  Perfection.


Interior of the Week

Such a light, dreamy space from D├ęcormag.  I love the chandelier, the Saarinen tulip table, Eames plywood chairs, and of course the use of a tutu as art.  Clean lines with a touch of whimsy.    


Happy Friday!

I hope you all have a great weekend.  We'll be celebrating a few April birthdays this weekend and that means Birthday Cake!



I seem to be drawn to dresses lately; these beachy dresses from Swell are perfect for hot summer day.  (Yes, I moved onto dreaming of summer.)


Erica Weiner

There a lot of things to say about these hummingbird skull necklaces from Erica Weiner, they are: a little creepy, definitely cool, somewhat macabre, and infinitely fascinating...


Karen Millen

I love the boldness of Karen Millen cocktail dresses; they definitely make a statement.


Interior of the Week

Despite the Rafa-Federer match being a bit of a bust and Nadal losing to Djokovic in a heartbreaking third set tiebreak, I am going to remain positive about the week ahead and the upcoming clay season.

This cheery room filled with pattern, color, and a glowing fire just beckons spring to finally break through these winter doldrums.


Rafa vs. Fed

I'm so excited for the Sony Ericsson Open semifinal tonight.  Nadal and Federer reunite on US soil for the first time in 6 years.  I haven't watched them play each other live since Wimbledon 2008. 

I hope you all have a good weekend.  Vamos Rafa!
