Living With Great Style

it’s friday + a winner!

Happy Friday! Where did this week go? I feel like it started and then in a blink of an eye it was over. I’m ready for a weekend filled with lots of time at home – whether it’s taking a nap, starting to figure out my art wall or just lounging in my bed catching up on shows I haven’t had time to watch. It’s a weekend filled with lovely indulgences. Including picking up some blossoms since May day is on Sunday, which was one of my favorite holidays when I was little. I can still see myself putting together bouquets for our neighbors.

Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Enjoy!


ps. The winner of the Minted giveaway is . . . Margaret, you’ve won and I’ll be emailing you right away. Thank you all for entering.

spring staple

Finding a sample for spring that transitions into summer is hard to find. I’ve been searching far and wide for a go-to outfit but couldn’t find anything until this week. This casual but chic ensemble was exactly what I was looking to find. The heels and leather jacket dress up the look, but the rolled up chinos and gray tee make it a little more casual for the months ahead. It must have been fate that I came across this because I just bought a pair of chinos from JCrew this weekend with a girlfriend – I left hoping to find inspiration for styling the pants, and voila, look what I came across.

I’m hoping these oxfords have a home in my closet soon! Have you found your staple look for this season?

a pop of jcrew . . .

This past weekend I had the pleasure of popping into the JCrew in Corta Madera – my favorite location in the Bay Area (Carmel’s is out of this world too!). As I walked into the store I finally felt inspired to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring. It’s time to bring out the cotton and color and store the wool. We all know that I’m a stripe-aholic – beware my fellowstripe lovers, the store is packed full of striped goodness along with pops of color that had my creative outfit juices flowing (Alicia and Taylor would have been so proud). In the end I walked away with loads of inspiration about what to do with clothes I already own. I also walked away with a pair of slouchy khaki pants to roll up.

I’m ready to bust out some pops of color in the next few days – especially since the sun is shining bright! Where are all of you finding spring outfit inspiration?

well-styled . . .

Every season Toast creates an inspiring catalogue that combines beautiful styling and dream-worthy locations that seem to always take my breath away. When I flipped to this feature within the catalogue my heart went a flutter. The mix of blue and white has a sweet spot in my heart.

Now, if only I could make a special trip to London just to go to Toast. I’d probably get in a wee bit of trouble.

finding fixtures

Since we’ve decided to stay in our apartment for a few more years I spent the weekend sifting through back issues of magazines for light fixture inspiration. Next week will mark our five year anniversary of moving into our apartment. When I first moved in I didn’t think we’d be there for more than two years. But being in an amazing neighborhood, in a top floor apartment that faces a park is pretty rare. Last June we FINALLY painted and it completely transformed the entire look and feel. It’s now a cozy oasis that feels more permanent since it’s what we want. Now all I can think about is changing out the plain jane overhead lighting.

I’d love to find something like the above fixture – it would work well in either our kitchen or dining room. So my dears, the search is on and if you have any inspiration or favorite fixtures please link to them or let me know where you’ve been finding some lighting gems.
