Was peeking around for images of low braids and came across photo after photo of Diane Kruger.
Just wanted to share some favorites that are inspiring me to wear my long hair back more often.

a few personal photos...

A friend emailed not too long ago to introduce me to a brand she thought I'd like: Minna.
She mentioned beautiful lace tops and dresses so of course I visited immediately. Now I own two pieces from Minna, (a dress and a lace top, above). I think you'll like this brand- The quality of both pieces are really beautiful. While they look delicate, I consider the pieces everyday wear.
Who says white embroidery and lace is only for your wedding day??

There is something about spring that makes me want to wear all white.
(and when the weather turns colder some of the darker lace tops will be perfect for holiday.)
check out the site here.

Have a happy weekend everyone. I will be working this weekend but am going to try to spend some sort of time outside today since it's about to be a cold week!

Saw this photo of a cherry blossom walk in Japan, after walking through our park here in DE which was also full of blooms. Would be an amazing spot for a perfectly timed photo shoot...

etsy shop spotlight: Friedasophie

Last year I posted a few favorites of mine from a little etsy shop called Friedasophie, and I still get emails about those two pieces now. This week I decided to visit again and found more pretty things to add to my jewelry collection. I love very light and natural pieces for spring, so I'll be choosing one of these three.

Right now, everyone is posting photos of themselves in their own styles. But in my opinion a very small percentage of those people get it right. Sincerely Jules , you got it right.


Today, the MoMA Design Store is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Tibor Kalman’s Sky Umbrella.
Proud to say I own this design staple (it keep the sun above my head even on the grayest days).
Here are a few personal photos of mine. My little way of saying Happy Anniversary.

acanthus jewelry

 Recently I found the site Acanthus Jewelry- I love the handmade-but-still-chic feeling of these pieces.
A handpainted chevron locket?! I'd wear it with one of the initial lockets below.

And don't miss the selection of hoops. Perfect for summer.

I am obsessed with the earrings at My Wardrobe. I mean seriously? Love.

Giveaway- from Sea&Asters and Dallas Shaw

In continuation with my new chalkboard paint obsession, today we are giving away a chalkboard-painted plant pod by Sea and Asters! (You probably recognize them since I immediately posted the shop when I found these on etsy.)
I have the black version in my home (love the gray as well) and I am drawn to it because below a plant is such an unexpected place to find a chalk written message.

To enter , like sea&asters on Facebook, and comment below which color you'd choose for your space.
(Extra entries if you like my new FB page here!)

The happiness bracelet

 Maybe I'll need to get this for myself 
(who says it's only for kids?)

I was taking a peek at some chalkboards online this week (need one for my kitchen and just haven't found the right one yet), when I came across some really fun photos showcasing chalkboard paint.
Love the idea of using them for gift tags as spotted on hiphostess and pinterest.  
You know I love a dark wall, so a dark wall you can write on sounds like it would be just right for me.
I like the minimalism here.
And for kids rooms possibilities are endless. I love the calendar idea if you are a busy mom who needs a day-to-day calendar but hates the look of the regular refrigerator version, and the pink painted door above is so fun for a children's bedroom.  

Want to know how to make your own? Here you go. Thanks, Martha.
