Would you? Could you?

Get married in a short cocktail dress?

Oh, if it looked like this I know I certainly could!!

I did actually contemplate not sharing this link....because I'm LOVING this sweet little dress a bit too much...

I've had my eye on...


I adore a good pair of oxfords. I have a brown pair with a small heel that I wore all last winter, but I desperately want a new pair, which I'm secretly plotting to get very, very soon!

A few other styles I've had my eye on....


A luxe grey oxford is perfectly suited for all my fall favorites.

Add a little height.
Instantly updated cut-out oxford.

Layer me pretty.

Gold charmer indeed.

My favorite, snake.

Isn't this girl adorable? I love her high waist printed snakeskin pants. I have always had a thing for snakeskin. However, I'm not sure what attracts me to snakeskin. Maybe it's the intricate pattern and texture of the skin or the combination of two colors coming together in a perfect mix-match, creating a distinct pattern. Whatever it is, I'm loving these snakeskin pieces!

A small snakeskin clutch...Going from day to evening with ease.

A snakeskin buckle belt to wear around my waist with breezy dresses... A gold double coil snake ring that I can wear with everything...
A delicate clutch I can take out at night.Sweet mauve moccasins I can wear all day.

Wall art.


My walls are in desperate need of some TLC and I stumbled upon this picture! I'd love to put it into a vintage frame. Yes, I am still obsessed with bikes. I want one, whether it's on the wall or an actual bike! My birthday is coming...hint, hint.

Ruffle me pretty.

Call me a girlie girl, but I really do love ruffles! They are feminine, cute and romantic. I just adore them here, done in a bright turquoise. *Sigh* ruffles oh ruffles, how I adore you.

Give me some Swedish style.

I popped over to Style Sightings and there are great pics from Stockholm's fashion week. I would LOVE to go to Stockholm, but that won't be happening anytime soon. However, I noticed that many of the women were wearing these adorable shoes, take a look.....
Get a pair here!

What I want now.

I am loving Heidi Merrick's Summer collections. So sweet & cute!

Take a peek....(it's also on sale!). If you are anything like me, then you'll be asking yourself whether this is a good purchase for end of July with summer halfway done and fall around the corner. One of the reason's I'm loving this line so much is because I can easily envision these pieces rolling over to fall. Just add a few layers and you're all set with an adorable updated fall piece. The best purchases can be worn through different seasons by changing your shoes, accessories and adding or removing a few layers. These are perfect stables for a wardrobe with miles!

Give me some Gryphon love.

Oh how I love thee!
Via here....

It's been cold in New York. This past June was the coldest June in 50 yes, I know summer has just began, but I must tell you....I LOVE FALL. I adore everything about fall, so when the pre-fall and fall collections start hitting stores, I get so excited I can't contain myself! You will be hearing more about this little fall obsession of mine in the coming months. But for now I leave you with an adorable Gryphon sneak peak on fall.

**I am so in love with the last has officially become my fall inspiration! A fringe oversize clutch, fur vest and graphic print skit?! Amazing.

A chic space worth talking about...

Have you seen designer Michelle Adam's apartment? It's such a design inspiration. I love the mixture of soft colors, with vintage inspired textiles.
Yellow is always a cheerful color. I love the use of it here as a bright floral headboard, against classic white and black borders sheets. The striped black and white carpet is the perfect addition that sets this room apart.
I adore this office. Aw, I would LOVE to have an office just like this......
