Happy Guest Post Day! | 3.28.14

Hey all! I am guest blogging over on my friend’s blog tomorrow morning. Check out Stilettos & Diaper Bags for a fabulous Fashion To Front Room post inspired by her Dream Closet board on Pinterest!

Here is a little sampler (or a little dessert if you are coming over from Lisa’s blog):

What is a closet without the incredibly important LBD?! We all need one (or 2….. or 3!) It’s chic, it’s sophisticated and it makes us feel amazing. Find a room and let an LBD (or a BBD (figuratively speaking, of course), depending on how much B you like)  create that same feeling in your home.

2014 Oscar’s Laundry: The Brights & The Darks | 3.6.14

Let’s be honest, sometimes we have a smaller load than normal and we mix a couple the darks and the brights. Welcome to today’s post. We are wrapping up our 2014 Oscar’s Review with a mixture of the brights & the darks!

My main girl Sandy wowed in Navy. It’s a versatile shade of blue. If you want to keep it off your walls, throw a spotlight on the deep hue with a sturdy sofa.

J.Law is my spirit animal. And this year at the Academy Awards, she continued her tradition of tripping and looking spectacular. Red is a bold statement. Add a little bit into a space to see if you like the color (as opposed to say, painting the whole room). Sometimes a little bit goes a lot farther.

Olivia Wilde is talented, gorgeous and she makes such a pretty preggo. I love her choice of black and white. It is elegant, simple and sophisticated. Translate this look in to your home by balancing the black & white with warm wood tones in caramel & mahogany,

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t that much of a fan of this dress when I first saw it on TV. And it’s not that much of a stunner in photos. But when Annie walked out on stage, you really got the full effect. This dress is something special and deceptively gorgeous. Punch up a dark spot in your home with some sparkle!

Hang tight – we’re almost to the weekend!

Obsessed: The Olympics | 2.11.14

Well I think the title says it all. I love the olympics, summer & winter. I love the athleticism, the sportsmanship, the pomp & circumstance, I love it all! Every two years, I settle comfortably in my obsession and immerse myself in the games, the rules, the competitors and the host country. True story: just yesterday I wikipedia-ed how to play curling. I read every last word and I am now prepared to watch every last minute. Disgusting, I know. But I LOVE IT!!!!! I don’t expect you to share in my obsession, just enjoy my celebration of said obsession below! Go USA!

Taking The Subway | 10.11.13

Subway tiles are HUGE right now.

Typically they were found in bathrooms.

They’ve since made quite the revival in the kitchen.

Wanderlust 01: NYC | 09.18.13

There are few things I love more in this world than traveling. The sights, the culture, the adventure of it all. It’s thrilling and exhausting and satisfying. But when there is neither time nor money for the biggest dreamed adventures, there’s wanderlust.

01. New York City

clearly not representative of all of NYC, but it does send my mind wandering… Have you ever been to NYC? I went once with my gal pal K and it was AMAZING.
