I know that I have no business being on the Crewcuts website, but this photo is a hoot.

Flowers, flowers everywhere

Normally floral prints would not be my thing, remind me too much of the days of Laura Ashley. But these days I seem to be singing a different tune, and I find that I like them a lot when they are paired with accessories or other garments that make them a little less prissy. Floral with an edge.

This last floral jacket you may remember from Jessica Alba's Teen Vogue cover or The City episode....apparently there is also a little counterfeit controversy as well that you can read about here. Anyway, I imagine this being really cute paired with just a white tank, jeans, and these boots (I'm so in love with these I'll probably have to buy them and not eat)!

What a steal...

Discounted by $2 M! Why is this not my Tribeca triplex? I'm green with envy.

While I'm Here

I love designer Beth McMillan's little bungalow. Did a little drive-by while I'm here in Birmingham.

Converstation piece...

or statement piece? I love the idea of super simple clothing with one of these great necklaces to add a little something. Lucky Mag did a great necklace feature recently, and these were some of my favs! (most are pretty reasonable too!)

Shoe Wall

I wish I had this shoe wall. I wish I had these shoes. I especially wish I had those black and brown wedges in front center. Marni maybe??

The Party Garden

All pictures courtesy Garden and Gun Magazine

Garden and Gun recently featured a garden in Milledgeville, GA which inhabits land that was once part of Andalusia, Flannery O'Connor's farm. The garden looks absolutely amazing. The couple uses it primarily for entertaining: brunches, dances, basically any sort of party. I had to share these pictures, because I know I can't stop looking at them...and imagining the fĂȘtes I would throw!

This recipe from
Glamour is making my mouth water, even though I just polished off breakfast.

Is it too cliche?

I feel like I should get a new pair of boots since I'm moving to Texas. I think these are the ones I want.

Little Gold Pigs and Stacked Books

Mary Catherine showed me a loft in Atlanta today, and I liked this stack of books.

I have tons of books that I want to hold on to, but I am never quite sure what to do with them. I am usually just worried about the way books get dusty so quickly. Maybe I'll stack my books like this. But I'll have to get this little guy, too!

Speaking of that little guy, I keep seeing him everywhere. Like in this James Merrell photo.

Slim Aarons

I'm really into Slim Aarons' photogs right now. Not sure what, but something really draws me to them.

I'm sure it's fate

So today when I was walking around my neighborhood, I noticed a house for sale that I liked. For really no reason at all, I decided to look it up. Lo and behold, this house has my favorite horse triptich in REAL LIFE. Amazing.
