{Lust List} Be Nice In Spring


I’ve not worn a maxi skirt since forevers, but I’m suddenly drawn to them like a moth to the flame. Blame it on the flowy colorful layers or how versatile they can be. I’m definitely daydreaming about wandering farmers markets in this cute outfit smelling flowers!

{Color Palette} New Year’s Toast


We have no crazy plans to ring in the new year, but these almost pink ombre drinks with gold stirrers may still be on the menu at our place (via Swoon).

Any New Year’s Eve plans?

OK. When you start planning things like a wedding or even a party, you (and by you I really mean I) start daydreaming in the strangest things. Maybe a picture caught your eye and you can’t get it out of your head. Suddenly, you’re interested in buying sequin cloth by the bolt. I mean we can all use some, right? To justify my sudden crazy need, I’ve included some inspiration above. Don’t you just love the subtle glimmer in the light?

PS: If you really want sequin cloth by the yard, I found some here in all sorts of colors. (I told you I wasn’t exaggerating.) Also, it looks like JoAnn’s stocks sequin cloth as well for cheaper, but less colors.

Are you a fan of sequin cloth?

{Wish I Was Wed} Melissa White

{Melissa White} Website

From the moment I saw Melissa White’s work I stopped everything I was doing to find out more. If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for gold and I love the gilded look of her handpainted design in wallpaper. She trained with an artist specializing in Elizabethan painting and one of their projects was replicating painted cloths in the Shakespeare’s Birthplace Museum. How amazing is that? I hope to have something this amazing in my home someday! (Via The City Sage)

Daydream In Squirrels

Since being in the new place, we experience a lot more wildlife than we did downtown. Just the other day we saw a woodpecker. Squirrels scamper about and it makes me so happy! Thinking about Thanksgiving and decor, I’ve been notcing these little furry cuties everywhere. I bought a little orange version offering an acorn just the other day at Coco & Toulouse Go Shopping. It just makes me smile. I thought I’d share the inspiration!

Do you see wildlife where you live?

{Lust List} Pardon My French!

Garance Dore Studio Pull Over ($128) | Petit Amour Necklace (£5) | Worth Street Croissant Bag ($98)

France has been on my to visit list for as long as I can remember. I even had a phase (that may or may not be over) when I collected little French inspired soveniours and vintage things. Let’s just say I’m thinking about having the guest room be Parisian because of all these little things I’ve gathered. I love these cute little French inspired things that I can now incorporate into my closet as well!

Have you been to France?
