The color of this couch is exactly what we want. Love the eclectic styling here.
Chris and I are currently doing some serious couch hunting. We need a new couch desperately. Since our two dogs practically live on the couch, buying a leather sofa is non-negotiable.

So, married life is pretty amazing. My levels of security, comfort, happiness and love have never been higher. I even enjoy long, tedious road trips we take together. Here’s what’s been really fun though — decorating our home. Continue reading “home decor inspiration”

I think I’m an anglophile

First of all, the royal baby has a name! George Alexander Louis is now the most famous baby in the world (and was trending on Twitter before he even took his first breath.) The extensive media coverage of the little Prince and my current read, The Night Circus, which is set in Europe, has me infatuated with all things British. I think of a European lifestyle as classic and traditional; it’s simple but contemporary with a touch of whimsy. Whether my depiction of those across the Atlantic is accurate or not I cannot say, but I’m inspired by them nonetheless. I don’t just love modern English either; I’m fascinated by the English of any century. Keep reading to see what brings out my inner Anglophile.

friday five

Can you tell I’ve had a busy week? I hate this switch between extremes from week to week. I’m either go, go, go or bored and lazy… It’s like whiplash and I’m kind of not too happy about it. No matter, the weekend is upon us now and I’m excited to take it easy. I started reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and the book really inspired me. All the magic, mystery and black and white stripes have me feeling giddy. My Friday Five this week may or may not reflect my recent inspiration…

I’m really drawn to natural, neutral and functional elements/colors/pieces. Since a lot of my time is spent on the computer now, naturally my love for simplicity carried over to my desktop layout.

summer street style inspiration

I’m experiencing the worst possible thing that could happen to an aspiring fashion journalist: a style rut. Nothing in my closet is working for me. I feel like I’m losing touch with my sense of style. Thank goodness for Pinterest style boards and fashion blogs… I think the looks below are pretty rad but, you may disagree.
