Sunday Musings

I can’t.  This is the best party on anyone’s feet I’ve ever seen.  Down to the perfect shade of pink bubble gum polish.  Sophia Webster kicks – available at Saks.

Have you SEEN Tabarka Tile?  Remind me to post about them later this week.

Look at this little lilac stunner!  I’d like to pop triplets of these over a pretty Calcutta Gold island. #nomnomnom

Half of the things I say from my little soapbox on this blog, I say out loud to remind myself of, too.  And this is one of ‘em… I made a few REAL good strides on the “do more of what makes you happy” front today, including a project that started with crossing a few lanes of traffic and throwing myself on top of a wicker headboard in someone’s yard.  I wish I were kidding.

How stunning are these Limoges plates?  We could totally set the table with the doily dress above and everything would be right in the world. #passthecreamedcornplease

The world can never have enough Gusses.


I Dream of Fall.

Moving to Cali from the Midwest was a great idea in February…  when it was below freezing, and the kind of grey for about the 4th month in a row that can only be described as soul breaking.  And I’m sure in a few months when there’s a solid sheet of ice covering Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan, I’ll feel that way again (have you heard this winter is supposed to be even more brutal than last??  I didn’t even know there was such a thing).  Nonetheless, for the past week or so, I have been ACHING for the Fall… (BIG exhale)… Is there anything better??

Maybe it’s because college football started last weekend, and after huffing it through the bustling, Saturday morning city streets, I was posted up in a bar at 9am with a cold Bloody Mary in hand, surrounded by my good Midwest people and the sound of 1st downs and whistles tweeting.  Maybe it’s because I spent Labor Day Weekend in San Francisco – where the morning air was cool and crisp and fresh, and leaves were already falling.

Or maybe it’s because it’s Fashion Week in New York and back-to-school time… which makes me want to inhale bouquets of freshly sharpened #2’s and dress like this:

And it makes me wanna traipse around city streets in the morning, like this…

Le sigh…  If anyone needs me, I’ll be burning pumpkin spice candles, sipping pumpkin spice lattes, carving pumpkins, making chili and cranking up the AC to 50 degrees so I can sport plaid flannel whilst I watch Rudy on repeat.  For the next 3 months :)  Just kidding…  I’ll be drowning my sorrows in saltwater.  At the beach.
