spring lust list

Although it doesn't quite feel like spring, warm weather is just around the corner! Here's a few items on my current purchase list:

shorts, alice + olivia. flats, chinese laundry. clutch, rebecca minkoff. blouse, stella mccartney. bag, j.crew. sandals, salvatore ferragamo. polish, essie. tanks, aeropostale.

With my mama in town this weekend, hopefully I'll be indulging in a little retail therapy!  Is it weird to buy spring/summer clothes when it's still freezing out?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

weekly obsessions

Favorites from the week:

1. "Matches as Memories" in the New York Times.

2. Chevron glasses from C.Wonder.

3. A transparent tent + chandeliers at this elegant Louisiana wedding

4. Dark, neutral colors by Amy Meier Design.  I usually prefer light bedrooms, but there's something about that nailhead trim...

5. Words of wisdom.
Happy Spring!!

weekend roundup

My little sister has been a Big Apple resident for over a year, but has yet to experience a lot of the "touristy" things that New Yorkers tend to avoid.  So to celebrate her birthday, we bundled up for a bit of sightseeing.

Afterwards, we warmed up with lunch and drinks for St. Patty's Day.

To top it all off, I had a double date at Macondo with Alaina (see her post here)!  They even surprised me with a treat for my own birthday, which is later this week.

Do you ever "play tourist" where you live?

friday's fancies: lucky ladies

Fitzgeralds get pretty excited about St. Patty's Day, but you don't have to be Irish to appreciate green beer outfits.

top, joie. skirt, j.crew. dress, tibi. jacket, rebecca minkoff.

St. Patty isn't the only celebration on tap this weekend: my mama's birthday is today, and tomorrow my baby sister turns 24 (eek!). 

Hope everyone has a fantastic holiday!

something pretty: anniversary edition

Today I'm celebrating a special three-year anniversary.  I'm not a big white-tablecloths-and-roses person, so here are some ways to add a little love to any day:

artwork, natural curiosities. bra, only heartssweatshirt, zoe karssen. "love" bracelet, boticca. instagram prints, origrami. "taken" necklace, dogeared. chalkboard candle, minedesign. chocolate whiskey, kings county distillery

My night will probably involve a fun, casual feast dinner with plenty of wine. Any special anniversary traditions of your own?

friday's fancies: lace love

Is there anything more classically feminine than lace? It never goes out of style: season after season, lace sticks around.

Here are some of my favorites for spring:

dolce vita, jcrew, juicy, madison marcus, alice + olivia

After creating this post, I think there needs to be more lace in my life!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
