To my delight, Valentine's Day is fast approaching! I am guessing I get equal squeals of joy from half of you and a cynical eye roll from the other half. I have definitely been on both sides of that opinion about February 14th, so no judgement either way. This year, however, I am cautiously optimistic that it will be fun no matter what my plans are! I also love any excuse to buy a new party dress, especially one thats sweet and sexy. I am thus lusting after this little Ted Baker number with the fabulous detail around the neck (it's tiny little hearts that form the ruffle! Cute no!?) My only dilemma is the color-choice. My gut instinct is to go with red. It's Valentines Day, so duh. However, I love the gorgeous sapphire hue and it also has the heart detail so still a perfect and subtle option. So my dears, what's your vote? Red or Blue?
How amazing is this Super Bowl themed party spread from Coco+Kelly? I never thought I would live to see the day of adorable, whimsical and classy football decor. I am glad I have, though, I wish I could actually throw a party! My dog is no longer in the fight (damn Bears) but for those of you planning a party this would be so cute! I love the little football players in the planter for a centerpiece!
Yay my lovelies it's Friday! I am so ready for this weekend even though it was a short week! Tonight I think I will be seeing a movie with my favorite intern Jane and getting some drinks! Also, the Bears vs. Packers on Sunday will determine who goes to the superbowl so it's a pretty big weekend here in Chicago. I will likely be viewing the game in a rowdy bar with some beers and cheer :). What are you all doing this weekend? I hope everyone is having an amazing time at Alt and I can say with certainity I will be there next year! Stay warm! xoxox
This is one of my new favorite blogs. I am obsessed with her gorgeous fashion illustrations!
For those of you who have an Ipad..This is AMAZING!
Ok I am seriosuly on board for the red blazer trend! I think it is the perfect way to add a pop of color to an outfit while still donning a classic staple piece. It would be so sweet for Valentines Day or in the summer with some white matchstick jeans. Or for the very bold, smear on some red lipstick for exta va-va-va voom! Doesn't the first girl look so Parisian chic? Love her!
Hello dearies! I wanted to share this image from the home page of Ferm Living since it's the exact color scheme of my living room! The grey, tourquoise and yellow is spot on with my inspirations. I love, though, that in this picture they added a purple element. It is exactly the mis-matched pop of color and aesthetic I was missing! Needless to say I will likely be purchasing a purple pillow this weekend!
P.S. If you like the pillows you can find them here!
Ok so I am, (somewhat embarrassingly) really in to star signs and people's personalities traits. I have never believed in horoscopes but when I suddenly had random people ask if I was a Pisces upon meeting me, I became intrigued. I researched my star sign and it literally describes me to a tee! (It freaked me out a bit - I'm not gonna lie!) Since then, I am always interested in people's star signs and what it reveals about them. So, I was incredibly devastated when the news of a "New Star Sign" came out last week and declared me as an Aquarius. I, however, refuse to believe this hogwash and will forever be a Pisces. Then to my delight I came across these amazing necklaces by Kimberly Baker via Design Crush! They are so gorgeous and fun! I love the sweet little design of the cut-out stars! I think I will have to get one to hold me over until I get my tatto this summer! Eek! Anyway, was anyone else upset about their horoscope changing or did you remain the same? Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend!
Ok so I have a serious affinity for nautical themed anything, so I am loving these amazing pillows by designer Kevin O'Brien! I especially love the sailor one!! They are available for purchase from ABC Home.
One of my new favorite obsessions is this fabulous purse from the etsy shop valhallabrooklyn. The color, the shape, the gold accents, this bag just screams Kaitlyn! I think I am adding it to my birthday wishlist! It is super delish! Click here for more info!
