Birkenstocks Are Back!

 While they may not be the most attractive shoe that has graced our feet, they are the most comfortable. 

If you do not trust me, trust Ashley..

and Alexa! She would not steer you wrong.

This person who looks like Sienna Miller obviously knows how to dress herself.


Really long tan legs do not hurt when wearing an unattractive shoe.

Obviously, by this picture you can tell I have always been ahead of the fashion times.

I have found people are very opinionated about their love or sometimes hate of Birks.  If you cannot tell I am in love and think everyone should get a pair!

The Green Velvet Sofa

 I guess you could call it a trend, but there is nothing trendy about a green velvet sofa.








1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8


My favorite sofas skip the tufting, usually have one cushion and a pretty skirt.

I need a vacation!

Yesterday I shared the contents of my beach bag with Mrs. Meares. Last night we sat by the fire (our heat is not working) and wished for warmer days.
I decided to add some more items to my beach bag...

Mark Your Calendar!

I come out of a blogging hiatus for the one and only Iris Apfel
This is probably the most highly anticipated sale One Kings Lane has ever had.  Iris is selling 800 items of her personal collection starting TOMORROW.

Things of Note

I cam relate to everything in the House Beautiful article, You Know Your Decorating Style is Maximalist  When...

Speaking of maximalist, did you see Bailey's #projectholly featured on Style Me Pretty?
I have been following this on Instagram for over a year.  I really like everything Bailey does. It is fun, colorful without being too trendy.

The Top 10 Designers to Follow on Pinterest.
Any you think should be added to the list?

I have been trying to grow my bangs out and it has been very unpleasant. I finally just gave in and cut them again.  If you are in Raleigh and looking for a place to get your hair did, my stylist just opened her own place Stella and Blake. Whitney is genius when it comes to cut and color. Please tell her I sent you! If you are not due for cut and color, my friends at Parlor Dry Bar have set up shop. There is nothing like a blow out to help beat the winter blues.Treat yo self.

I found a tiny crystal lamp similar to this Thomas O'Brien goodness at Home Goods. I tend to think bigger is better, but sometimes good things come in small packages.

The Secretary Obsession

In my opinion, which is not worth much, every house could use a secretary desk. The possibilities are endless. They are functional and pretty.
I am pretty picky when it comes to my secretaries. I am waiting for the perfect piece. The one I will want to keep a lifetime. What are you currently hunting for? Do tell.
