as of late...


there are few things that make me more happy than a giant ice cream cone and new pretties.   


welcome to my morning routine... work, work, work.


picked these up at tj maxx last week... delectable suds for his and her sinks.


our escape is quickly approaching and there's no better way for us to get organized than a little chalk board love.  


finally, the little peanut that has brought our family so much joy the past couple weeks... isn't he simply beautiful?  now I understand the photo of my dad with the Fayettechill shirt isn't exactly Fayettechill's prime market... but that sweet little face makes me want to buy everything they offer.

braziliant...


{top & shorts//f21, scarf//anthropologie, lace underpinning//tj, wedges//kelsi dagger, jewels//f21 & dahlialynn, belt//target}

Blog meet sister... adorbs right?  Little princess' ensemble is exactly what I would throw on everyday if I were still a teenager.  Don't get me wrong, I don't shy away from many things but I do know my limit... 26 vs 16... you get it.  

{secret from this stylist:  perfect example of how to play with color//print//texture.  Tie died silk/bright floral scarf/cut off denim/cream lace... pop of coral/neutral shoe/leopard belt.  The perfect punch!}   

{another secret:  braziliant happens to be the name of my new Essie polish... topped with a subtle gold shimmer... pure genius for those who can't go full on glitter mania on those tips}

Beyond obsessed with neon as of late... are you on board with the electric feel?

lemon squeeze...

I love this time of the year... the beginning of summer.  All I want to do is lay by the pool and read.  Luckily I've been able to take my work to the pool the past couple of days//something I'd like to not make a habit.  Diving into the pool and a good book is the perfect escape...  

Because I find myself soaking in the sun more often than not, I've come to love the ensemble below.  It's simple, cool, and appropriate for running errands or a lunch date prior to that stop at the pool.

sweet escape...


A sweet escape awaits us very soon... 
While it seems as if I've been coming and going quite a bit... this one I'm especially looking forward to.  C and I are headed out for an entire week.  I'm thrilled to keep him away from the office for more than just a weekend. 
We're seeking somewhat familiar territory... then nothing but the sand beneath our feet and miles upon miles of endless sea.

read my mind...


work.  appointments.  meetings.  emails.  signing.  work.  styling.  shopping.  entertaining.  writing.  color coordinating.  makeup.  nails.  work.  photos.  editing.  social networking.  work.  clean.  laundry.  cook.  plants.  gym.  work.  coffee.  chocolate.  work.

peaches...



It's officially {almost} summertime... 
here's to late afternoon picnics, last minute trips to the river, 
and long walks after dinner.

calm...

It's Thursday morning... around 11:00.

I'm taking it easy this morning...
there's no place like home...
especially when I get to see this face...
it's funny because I stay so busy while I travel...
that the feeling of missing him doesn't sit in until I get home...
I'll say it again... there's no place like home.
It's also nice to see this little peanut...
he holds my heart in his tiny little hands... just like his older brother.
My dad is coming up today... 
geez I need to clean.  
I also need to get back to me...
gym {ehh...}
exfoliate {traveling always warrants a good treatment}
cleaning {oh boy}
laundry {surprisingly makes me feel good}
grocery {our fridge is sad}
target {misses me if we don't see each other once a week}
work {thinking doesn't sound enjoyable}
After these simple tasks which will take me all day...
I'll be ready for C to come home...
and my papa to be here.
It's going to be a great weekend.
Happy Father's Day Dad and Pops...
my life wouldn't be the same without either of you.
Happy Father's Day to MR G too...
I really do like your stories.

jello...





Sweet little treats from the gorgeous Bottega Louie... more on that later.
Fun chandelier above a vinage {old//throwback//awesome} piano
A little Edward Scissorhand's action on the rooftop in the form of a unicorn
Real coke... such a treat. {diet drinker}

bliss...




Back from the land of no worries... still California dreaming.

bewilder...

{resort 2012 - vogue.com}

I could not get this out of my head... holy geometric, sequin, chiffon, ribbon, bedazzled, whimsy perfection Chanel.  There are many exquisite pieces as always but this one I just couldn't forget.  

dreamy...

I expect nothing less from the Erin Fetherston.  Absolutely exquisite.
