Pretty Porch

Wow, I have been a terrible blogger lately. Hopefully I will be back on track (for real) next week.

This image popped up on Apartment Therapy last week. Love the look of this whole porch, and the rug in particular!


Do the Write Thing

It is Wednesday afternoon and I haven't posted since last Thursday. Oops. Clearly I'm not on my game this week, so in the meantime, check out the custom stationary at iomoi. Lots of clever pink and orange.



Another Kate Spade purse. I like it. Don't love it, but I like it.

My apologizes for mediocre blog posts this week, the past couple of weeks have been crazy busy at work and it is wearing me out.


Print Wars

I don't know anything about these colorful warrior designs. Jud found them on Flickr, and apparently they will be on sale soon at Bandito Design Co. who, as it turns out, does some pretty cool work.


Zig Zag

It may not be blanket weather anymore (hello 95 degrees!), but this one from Barney's looks so snuggley and warm.

P.S. What's up with dry clean only blankets? It's a BLANKET.



Laura sent me a link a very long time ago to this front porch redo from the Washington Post. Looks like a fun place to spend a summer evening!

The fantastic floor is from Flor.


Fine Wine

Jud sent me this photo of My World's wine packaging. My favorite red wine is packaged in my favorite colors!


Swim Coach

Coach is in on the swimwear game with some cute new items:

A breezy tunic:

A bright bikini:

And a matching towel:


Bed Spread

With high school graduations, this is the time of year when college-bound kids (ok, college-bound girls) start picking out bedding for their dorm rooms. Here are some cute options:

I like this vibrant mix of patterns, minus the peace pillow.

This simple reversible comforter in bright pink and orange would be cute for roomies that wanted to match their bedding. I don't think anyone does that anymore, though.

Bold flowers AND stripes? Sold.


Pool Cool

Great beach or pool sandals from French Connection!


Personal Pattern

Remember a while back when I wrote about Pattern +, the website where you can send in a few details about yourself and get a personalized pattern? Well mine came in this weekend!

Isn't it cute?

The information that I gave was my job, where I'm from, my favorite colors, a shape, a food, and a type of line. Try it out!


Cut a Rug

In cleaning out my blog idea folder, I rediscovered this great room from an MSN article. Love the pink and orange with the mid-century furniture. And the rug!


Bowled Over

Urban Outfitters is a good place to find cute housewares, and if you're willing to wait, it always goes on sale.

Nesting heart bowls.

Tie die bowl.

Mini heart bowls.


Baby Mama

Anyone need a stylish baby bag? I'll give you three guesses who makes this one, but you only need one.


Boden Bright

Boden is one of those website that I will forget about for months, and then when I remember, I wonder if I've missed anything good.

A cheery floral top.

An embellished tank.

And a maxi dress.
