A sketch of my favorite look from the new kate spade collection. I had the honor of sitting on a chic black and white ottoman mere feet from the colorful crisp new looks this afternoon at the spring 2012 presentation while Deborah Lloyd described the inspirations for the designs.
It was just the way to spend a Tuesday in October – looking forward to a springtime inspired by tennis, electric colors, finishing school sweetness and the classic style of Florence Broadhurst patterns.
Oh how I love a good wreath braid…
I saw this hairstyle on an olsen twin (which one is this again?) and thought it would be the perfect casual end-of-long-weekend-look for today’s post
almost the weekend! and its gorgeous, crisp and sunny here. perfect weather for all the lovely loafers i’ve been noticing lately. just might have to buy some!
fall arrived over night here and it. is. COLD.
and suddenly i find myself wishing i had a mum plant on my front stoop and leaves underfoot on my driveway. i guess old habits of fall in the countryside die hard even when fall is exciting in the city.
every fall, like clock work, my mother gives me a “festive fall mum plant” and instructs me to care for it and keep it on my porch. and every fall, my roommates and i somehow get too busy to take care of the little visitor and it inevitably withers and dies. but now that i live way up on the fourth floor in an apartment and no longer have a front porch or even a tiny little bit of yard, i suddenly wish i had a festive mum to keep alive!
is it illegal to put mums on the fire escape??
