Month: September, 2011

Yes, Lets.

The best part?

Most of these are incredibly DOABLE.

Personal favorites include: 31, 6-9, 19-21.

In no particular order, of course.

Happy weekend!


Completely Ready For All Things Fall.

Specifically clothing. Like scarves. Boots. And more scarves.

My summer palate consisted mainly of pastels and florals.

This fall I’m looking forward to incorporating more blue hues, specifically teal, the shake up the blush I’m so fond of.

One of my favorite things about fall clothing, is that you really can wear summer clothing if you transition it correctly.

Cardigans are key. They take any spring or summer outfit into the fall.

One of the things I’m most excited about trying, is pairing sweaters with summer skirts. I love the longer hem trend which re-emerged this summer, and plan to continue it into the fall, simply by adding warmth up top. Genius.

And of course, the always popular blazer and scarf upgrade.

I’m just counting down the days until I can comfortably wear tights, my wardrobe staple.

Whoo, and don’t even get me started on the pure genius of shorts and tights.

Fanny Brice.

I was raised on the classics. Fred and Ginger. Gene Kelly. Bing Crosby.

But I wasn’t until high school that I fell in love with Barbara Streisand. The Mirror Has Two Faces is one of my all time favorite movies.

But recently I’ve become completely engrossed with another one of her classics, possibly one of her greatest films: Funny Girl. If you haven’t seen it, do.

There isn’t anything quite as wonderful as the quick witted Fanny, when she spouts out lines like: “You plannin’ to make advances?”

And just once, you need to hear her ¬†belt out “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”

What a powerful woman that Barbara is. 

Zetus Lapetus.

This nail polish makes me feel like Zenon, girl of the 21st century.




And oh, how time passes. I can’t believe it’s already fall.

Beyond excited about my two new additions from Urban Outfitters. I can’t wait to see how they look in my new home!

Sometimes when you move far away, it’s nice to take a bit of home too.

(I thought the rug was especially appropriate!)
