Interior Inspiration: Thonet Chairs

I've recently noticed that many of my pins contain Thonet chairs.  The classic cafe chair was created by Michael Thonet in the 1859, who perfected bentwood designs.  It has been consistently produced for over 150 years.

I love their simplistic elegance and classic lines.  Le Corbusier said the chair had 'class' and I would definitely agree.

On My Radar No. 12

I love this boxy dress, it is cut to sweep the floor and yet can be dressed down easily -- a lovely, modern way to wear florals.

I love the delicate details of the necklaces from Iswas & Willbe.


My Daily Uniform

I would love to have more variety in my wardrobe in the future, but for now it's stripes, stripes, and more stripes.  I tend to wear jeans, a t-shirt, and flats to dress it up.  But, I'm excited to be graduating from school, again, and hopefully expanding my wardrobe and dressing up more for work.

Interior of the Week

Even though I'm a bit overwhelmed with IKEA furniture and need to scale back, I always find inspiration in their catalogs.  I love their furniture plans and use of textiles.

On My Radar No. 11

I love classics, from handbags to novels.  There is a kind of reassurance in classics, that people have vouched for them and that they won't disappoint you.  I love reading classic novels, including Austen and Hemingway, because of their connection to the past and the people that have loved them for years.  It can be exciting to be a trendsetter, but sometimes it's much easier to trust the classics.

Back to Basics: Trench Coat

I've been looking at a lot of trench coats lately: the quality, fabric, style, and price. . .  They really are classic and add polish to any outfit, whether you go big with Burberry or small with H&M.  (I'm thinking quality with khaki and price with a brighter color.)

I love all the light in this bedroom; it is so energizing to have a room bathed in sunlight.  I certainly need the energy, I'm hoping to start practicing daily morning yoga this week and planning to buy a new tennis racquet today.  It's always nice when it feels like everything is coming together.  


Spring Wishlist

Even though allergies have been kicking my butt, I'm still glad it's starting to feel like springtime.  I've been crushing on statement necklaces, totes, bright cardigans, and awesome sauce tennis dresses. . .

Snapshot to Style No. 7

I watched this video about Tartine and their bread making process a week or so ago and I can't stop thinking about it, the beautiful techniques and the connection to making something so basic.  I would love to get their book and start making my own straight away.  (Although it's fun to go to bakeries, too!)

Back to Basics: LBD

I'm trying to curate my closet, to have all the basics and a flexible wardrobe that is worth the money spent.  Sometimes it can be tempting to buy whatever is on clearance and lose focus on what can be functional and still aesthetically pleasing.

It's a well-known fact that every girl should have a little black dress.  They are always chic, sexy, and flattering. . . a true staple of any curated closet.
