Beachin’ it // Summer Towels

 

… Because what’s summer without some pretty textiles to plunk your tush on? Time to layout and unwind with some surf & sand, while keeping things fresh from head-to-toe. GM_BeachTowels

Max Wagner Photography

As a fellow blogger you probably already know about Max Wagner. His work has been shown on many of our favorite LA blogs like Designlovefest, Oh Joy! & Emily Henderson – and you should know about him, because his work is so enjoyable! We’ve been fans for a couple years now, but we’re always drawn back to his work this time of year because it’s so summery!

He also does some non-summer themed work which is equally amazing —

Cheering Up

It’s only Wednesday and it’s already been one of those weeks…so we’re trying to cheer up and be inspired with some beautiful pictures! Thank goodness for pinterest and the ability to come across thousands of images that really do make you feel better.

And of course it’s a gloomy day today (womp womp), but even if you’re not feeling blue, hopefully these images will help brighten up your day in other ways!

Happy Weekend

happy weekend

{ image via }

Wait a minute. Is that? Yes, yes it is. It’s the sun I see shining through the window. After a week of some seriously drab weather in New England, I’m so pleased to see Mr. Sun once again. Hopefully it holds through the weekend for all of us, and we can enjoy being in the great outdoors! Now in case you’re wondering, Christa sadly is not blogging these links from Italy, but instead prepped them ahead of time (like the true over-planner that she is – love you, boo!).

Hope you all have all have some glorious weekends ahead of you!

Madewell Spring 2014

As a part-time Madewell employee for the last 2 1/2 years, I figured it was about time I did a little feature on them! This company is truly a great one to work for – not only is it a beautiful brand aesthetically, but the environment is equally charming. When you’re in the store and we ask if we can help you find anything, we genuinely mean it. We want to help you find something trendy and comfortable, to make you look like the Parisian goddess we all long to be.

If you haven’t checked out their 2014 spring line yet, check out some of my favorite items for the collection below:

The Jumpsuit

I finally did it, I found a jumpsuit. After a long and arduous search, this black little number feels just right. With temps in the 60s yesterday (finally!), I was able to frolic around town feeling like I was wearing pajamas, yet looking like I read a fashion magazine from time to time. Christa and I decided to take advantage of our girls weekend in Hartford by shooting some pics of my fun new onesie. Now I just need to find some kind of heel so I can wear in out on the weekend. I’m thinking wedges…any suggestions?
