It’s Picnic Time!

9 May

picnic season 1


Hello!  How is your week been treating you?  Ours has been pretty busy like usual!  As I am nearing the end of my program, the projects are piling in, and I am definitely starting to feel the pressure!  But, for the most part, the projects are pretty fun and exciting so I can’t complain.

Yesterday morning Jonathan finished up a 24 hour shift (thats right, 24 HOURS of work!), so we decided to celebrate with a curry picnic.  The weather is getting consistently nicer each day making it officially picnic season!  So we packed up a our tasty curry dinner with some mason jars and a bottle of wine and headed to the park.  It was fabulous being out in the sunshine soaking up some  fresh air!

I also thought it would be fun to round up some picnic season essentials.  The fabulous Kinfolk partnered with Apolis to bring us this picnic/garden bag.  Isn’t it amazing?!

Happy Tuesday friends!  Today is all about gold!  In light of the Golden Globe Awards and, because I LOVE gold, I thought I would round up a few gold things that I have been crushing on lately.  Isn’t this gold wallpaper amazing!  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I have rounded up a few beauties from J. Crew to share with you today.  Here are a few things I have been crushing on and they will probably finding their way to my Christmas wish list as well.  I think those black pixie pants would be versatile and I REALLY want to find the perfect chambray shirt.  What do you think of this J. Crew one?

Happy election day friends!  Can you believe it is finally here?  I have to say, I am relieved.  There is so much division durning an election year and I am ready to move past some of it.  And get on to the holiday season!

Today I have posted a few things I am crushing on this week.  I have my eye on these fabulous navy flats from Zara.  They would be perfect for a holiday party!  Also, I still don’t have an iphone case yet because love how the phone looks all by itself.  But, if I were to get one, I think I would get this simple one from J. Crew.

Hello!  Tomorrow is Halloween, and I am so excited!  What are you dressing up as for Halloween?  I think I am going to be a ballerina again this year (I am a ballerina almost every year because wearing the tutu makes me so happy!).

Here are a few things I am crushing on today.  Have any of you heard of the Kinfolk magazine before?  It’s fabulous!  It is a collaboration made by many talented designers and creative folk who have a shared interest in beautiful small gatherings and tasty food.  Check it out!  Also, I just love this pretty blouse by Madewell.

Here are a few things I have my eye on!  When the weather turns cold one of the first things I feel like I need to stock up on is cute tights.  And I definitely like all the prints this year.  Also, one of my must have fall accessories is long mittens.  That way I can still wear a three quarter length sweater and stay warm when I am outside.  What do you think of these ombrè ones from Anthropologie?

Hi friends!  I am sorry there hasn’t been as much content on my blog the last couple weeks.  My Christmas Project has been taking up a lot of my time but I CAN’T WAIT to show it to you.  I have been working really hard on it and I am so excited.  Remember, the release date is 10.22.12 which is this Monday!  So it is definitely coming up soon!

Today I have some lovely goods that I have been crushing on lately.  I am on the hunt for a cute winter coat and I just can’t seem to find exactly what I am looking for.  I really want a cape style coat that is still in the form of a warm winter coat and has full length arms.  The coat below is sooo close but I am not sure I am in love with the color.  But still, it is close!  And, I can’t wait for the day when I can put wallpaper on my walls (well, probably just one wall).  I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!  Stay tuned on Monday for the Christmas Project Release!
