Living With Great Style

Happy Weekend + Link Love

It’s finally (almost) the weekend. This week has felt long, I thought Tuesday was Wednesday and Wednesday was Thursday.  Luckily within a few hours it’ll be time for some much needed R&R and hopefully I’ll have time to make pumpkin cupcakes that Joanna from A Cup of Jo raved about. I also plan on helping out a friend redecorate her apartment this weekend.

If you haven’t read any of these posts, they are a must read! Welcome to my new Friday link love:

J.Crew Spring/Summer 2010

Yesterday, I came across these photos in Lucky Magazine of J.Crew‘s S/S 2010 line and it made my day. I love J.Crew for basic’s and statement pieces. Creative director, Jenna Lyons, has done an amazing job transforming J.Crew through her personal style. I love that you can go into one store and get chic, glamorous, boyish and girly outfits. Even though I haven’t made a dent in buying my Fall purchases yet, I’m already excited about this Spring line.

A Pop of Chartreuse

Whether I see it in fashion or used to decorate an apartment, chartreuse is a color I love bringing out in the fall. It adds that pop of color that an outfit might need.

This coat is to die for and the way it brings out the chartreuse pattern in the blouse she’s wearing completes the entire look. 

Although this bedroom is a bit light in color for the fall, I liked how the chartreuse and orange rug complement each other.

Event: The Sartorialist Book Signing in San Francisco

Wednesday October 21st


Paul Smith

50 Geary Street

If you live in San Francisco, Paul Smith is the place to be tonight. Scott (The Sartorialist) is doing a book signing and hopefully answering a few questions. Leave a comment with any questions you might want answered and I’ll try my best to get a few in, but I’m sure it’s going to be a mad house.

Although it says it’s from 7:30 to 8:30 all of us know it’ll go later. Apparently he stayed until 12:30am at his DC book signing last night! Hope to see you there.
