Travel List: Prague

The Czech Republic capital of Prague (Praha in Czech) has a thrilling history and gorgeous architecture. There is a definite European romance to the city and I could even check off trying absinthe from my Mighty Life List while in Prague.


Want of the Day

I have this chambray shirt and this cardigan on my mind.  I wish they were in my closet instead...


Interior Inspiration: Bar Carts

Bar carts add such sophistication to a space.  I love the glamour of a well-stocked bar or maybe I watched too much tv from the 60's...  Bewitched, anyone?

Outfit Inspiration: Army Jacket + Chambray Shirt

I have a whole binder full of outfit inspirations from my favorite magazines.  And now I have Pinterest to collect all my favorite ideas from bloggers.  It can be so fun to see the combinations people come up with and how sometimes simplicity is best.

So, I thought I would share some of my favorite outfit inspirations...


Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all have a lovely holiday weekend.


H&M - Fall 2011

We finally have an H&M in the Salt Lake area.  I can't wait to go check it out.



Loving these chic floral blouses from Tucker.  They are so overtly feminine.

Interior Inspiration: Painted Stripes

I love painting stripes or a chevron on a wall.  It add dimension to the space for only the cost of a can of paint.  It can be as fancy as an intricate chevron pattern or as simple as bold stripes, but it always adds a dose of personality to any space.

Happy Friday!

Obsessed with this adorable photo booth proposal.

Pete stuck them on the fridge for Shannon to find while she made dinner.  But of course she didn't notice and he had to tell her to look at the fridge.  She saw the proposal, turned around and he was on one knee...  (You can read her full version here.)

Have a lovely weekend!


Emily and Fin

I love these two sweet dresses from Emily and Fin.  They definitely need more stockists!

Travel List: London

I am so excited for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals next week.  I wish I could be in London to experience it, but I'll have to settle for ESPN3 coverage this year...

November isn't ideal weather for London, but it is a good excuse for wellies and cozy knits.


Seneca Rising

I love all the relaxed, chic 70's blouses from Seneca Rising.

Interior Inspiration: Butterfly Chair

As I accumulate copious amounts of inspiration on Pinterest, it occurs to me that the only reason to collate this much information is to be able to decipher what appeals to you in the space.  So I thought for the next few weeks I would pick out some of my favorite features in these inspiration pictures.

First up, the Butterfly Chair...  It adds whimsy to any space a certain fluidity to seating arrangements.  I also think they can add extra depth and texture to the space, particularly leather butterfly chairs.  It can translate to any space or be moved from room to room as needed, very classic indeed.

Happy Friday!

Have a great weekend!  I'll be celebrating my mom's birthday and working on a Constitution law mid-term.


Bike Gran Canaria

I love the idea of bike tours.  They are a fun way to explore the area and see great sites.  But after doing the Hiawatha, I know I'd have to get into better shape to actually enjoy the experience.

Jetsetter is offering a 7-day bike tour through Ciclismo Classico that follows the coastline, goes through the forests, and traverses the slopes of mountains and volcanoes.  Adventurous, no?


J.Crew - Fall 2011

J.Crew has been killing it lately.  I am obsessed...


Stripe & Field

These lined envelopes from Stripe & Field are beyond gorgeous.

Interior of the Week

Loving this serene and simple space...  I'm definitely always trying to declutter.


Happy Friday!

I'm hoping for some great quarterfinal matches today in Basel (Federer v. Roddick) and Valencia (Delpo v. Querry).

Have a great weekend and check out all the gorgeous spaces on the house home tumblr.

DIY: Glass Succulent Planters

These succulent planters are made from wine bottles.  You just cut the bottle and use a dremel to soften the edge.  What a great idea.


Travel List: Machu Picchu

I am amazed by Machu Picchu and since my architectural history teacher in college described his experiences there I have wanted to go even more.  He spoke about the magic of seeing the sunrise and suggested staying in a hotel overnight at the top of the mountain to avoid the afternoon tourists.

This incredible Incan site is on my Mighty Life List for sure...


Kristi Bonnici Bridal Accessories

I love bridal veils; they can make any dress into a wedding dress and add such an old-fashioned charm to a wedding.  These gorgeous veils are from Australian designer Kristi Bonnici.
