Current Crush Thursdays

This week I am so excited to share my crush! I’m not sure how it happened… all of a sudden my pinterest account absolutely adores stairwells. Are stairs a crazy thing to crush on? Perhaps. I have to admit it was a bit of a shock to be so engaged by them.  However, you have to agree that there is something magical about where they could lead…no?

Whimsical Ceramics & Wearable Art

Recently my husband and I took a mini vacation in honor of our 10yr wedding anniversary. Our travels took us to Fiddleheads in Littleton, New Hampshire where we were introduced to Steven McGovney Designs. What fun he has with both his whimsical ceramic creations as well as unique jewelry pieces! My favorites of course were the artist earrings. I could not take my eyes off these dainty paper earrings adorned with tiny pendants… I wanted every single pair the store carried!  As for my husband? He was quite enamored with the Raven Collection

Personally I like those that wear boots! (click above to view more!) It was quite a treat to meet a new artist and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. What do you think?

{Pinning} Pretty in Pink

It is possible that I’m still in shock that it’s Monday… I’m not sure I even recognized that there was a weekend to be had! Summer is definitely in full swing and with such comes crazy-buys days whether it be Saturday or Sunday.  Today I have a to-do list that is at least 3 miles long but alas I’m happily blogging about my repeat obsession with pink. While I have toned down the wearing of such for myself I just love having two daughters so I can keep the color alive! I am so drawn to all shades of pink and some of my favorite pins are filled with it.

* Pretty in Pink is definitely one of my fave movies of all time because I can’t help but adore the 80’s version of Molly Ringwald and all her fashionable glory at that time. (still love how she would stick 2 pairs of earrings in one hole to sassy up her look) 🙂 *

Current Crush: Arm Candy

Lately I’ve been trying to make an effort to come out of my comfort zone when it comes to my jewelry choices. While I adore earrings and can’t leave home without them (as many of you know) I have noticed a trend in stacking a variety of bracelets, bangles and cuffs to enhance ones daily look.  This week my crush is all about arm candy and I say the more you stack up the better… and never be afraid to choose bold colors!

Pinning: A Festive Summer

A Weekly Pinterest Link-Up? Talk about my kind of fun!  Many of you are aware of how addicted I am to “pinning” and when I found Kimberly from ‘A Night Owl’ inviting all to join up for a Monday Pinfest I was so excited!  Besides, why wouldn’t I want to win the title of “Pinning-est” with my best Pinterest finds?

This is the last week of school for my oldest and she is already after me for Summer party ideas and what to do with her friends. So I’ve been gathering some “pins” of yummy creations to whip up for the kids as well as new outdoor inspirations:

Weekly Wonders: Summer Dresses

I suppose it was bound to happen… a pin board devoted to dresses that is. Summer is a mere 19 days away if we are going to be precise about it and yet the warmth of such is already here.  Therefore I have been given more than the permission I need to frolic around in beautiful, floral fabrics right?

Creation of a new board started when I was having a bit of fun over at Polyvore and came across the above VIVIENNE WESTWOOD ANGLOMANIA short dress. Immediately I was in love with the bright colors and simple design that made this dress seem like a staple for my Summer wardrobe.  However at $580 I’m going to have to put it to rest for the time being and search out similar floral designs that are more within my $$ range. Thankfully I found OASIS:

Floral Belted Dress $90

Vintage Rose Dress $145

Blue Floral Sundress $36

Placement Floral Dress $90

Oasis Paisley Dress $85

Aren’t these dresses charming? I can’t help but adore the splash of flowers and colors on each and how affordable they are too. For a limited time it appears that you can save even more with the following code:

How cool is that?  Have fun shopping!

Current Crush: Lovely Leaves

Crushing on Leaves

Nature walks as of late have me appreciating the many textures, colors and beauty of leaves. I’m ready to see them make a statement everywhere and on every single thing. Adorned on fashions, in hair accessories and throughout all types of jewelry I just find the look to be feminine and graceful and am crushing on them quite a bit these days!
