because you're everywhere to me...

alicia bock's "everywhere" set is so, so beautiful--love these ethereal images and the text sentiments that go with them.

what are you doing this weekend?

what are you doing this weekend, my loves? any big plans? i am nursing my broken toe, catching up on a lot of work and relaxing and sleeping in. after going to bed at 7 a.m. last sunday morning after my friend's birthday and participating in a bunch of shenanigans this week, plus being super busy with work, i think the rest will be fabulous. don't you just love lazy weekends?

tell me your plans, and i'll see you back here on monday with a full week of posting! xoxo

p.s. happy fall!

silent night.

sorry for the radio silence, everyone--it's been an insane few days and i think i may have broken my toe today on top of all of it! i'll be back to regular posting and commenting tomorrow, though, so see you then! in the meantime, enjoy this lovely, lovely image by one of my photographer crushes, max wanger.

what are you doing this weekend?

happy weekend, my loves! how were your weeks? do you have any exciting plans for the next few days? my friend m.'s birthday party is this weekend--i've been planning it with her brother--and we're going bowling and then out for some adult beverages. bowling, to me, is akin to roller-skating: it brings back great childhood memories and i always have so much fun when i do it.

tell me what you're up to, and i'll see you back here on monday. xo!

a good philosophy.

more fashion week favorites from philosophy di alberta ferretti. i just love the styling of all of these looks, from the hair to the shoes.

glamorous, glamorous.

love this shot by the sartorialist.

p.s. more fashion week faves coming later. xo

endless love.

as promised: a few photos from mel and joe's lovely wedding this past weekend. i just love how the pinks and berries complement each other so perfectly--but then, that's to be expected when the bride is an artist!

happy monday.

happy monday, lovelies! don't you love these pretty, pretty things from rebecca taylor's spring '10 collection? i do, and would like to own each and every one of these pieces.

p.s. the wedding was beautiful, mel looked perfect and joe looked so happy when his now-wife came floating down the aisle. pictures to come.

what are you doing this weekend? (i'm in a wedding!)

it's friday, my loves! i always feel sad on 9/11 (you too, yes?), but i'm so glad that there's an incredibly happy event happening this weekend to overshadow that bit of sadness: mel and joe's wedding! i can't wait to see mel walk down the aisle in her pretty dress, say her "i do"s and officially be married! (and i also can't wait to dance my rear end off at the reception).

what are you all doing this weekend? please share--and whatever it is, i hope it's full of love and happiness. you deserve it!

vision of love.

fact: i am a huge, huge butterfly person. not in the annoying way, i promise--i just love butterflies and all that they represent. (back story: i wrote my undergraduate senior thesis on nathaniel hawthorne's the artist of the beautiful, a short story in which a butterfly plays a central role, and have been obsessed ever since.) so you can imagine my happiness when i stumbled across this gorgeous butterfly-themed engagement photo shoot over at once wed--aren't these images just beautiful?

and with pockets? yes, please.

to make you feel my love., you guys. how beautiful was alissa and ryan's wedding? the invitations, the favors, the setting--i am totally swooning.

p.s. view their equally gorgeous house here.

love story.

one of the best people i know--the lovely, talented, sparkly, delightful mel--is getting married this saturday. i am her maid of honor, and i couldn't be more thrilled for my dear friend and her husband-to-be, joe. which is why, for the next few days, i've scheduled wedding-themed posts to go up every morning (and a few in the afternoon, too). i hope you enjoy them and i hope that you find yourself celebrating love, whether it be at a wedding or with your cat, this week, too.

p.s. if you haven't, be sure to read joanna's beautiful "secrets to a happy marriage series." it's brilliant, truly.

a little extra cuteness.

just a girl and her balloon. i am a big fan of this photo. (apparently, it's a helium-filled day here today.)

music and lyrics.

who knew some balloons and a guitar could be so lovely?

speaking of guitars/music, i've been really loving mayer hawthorne's new album. what have you been listening to lately, my lovelies?

what are you doing this (three-day!) weekend?

happy friday, loves! what do you have planned this three-day weekend? i have a busy week coming up, so i'm just going to sit back, relax and enjoy the first few days of september with friends here in sarasota.

i probably won't be posting on monday, but i thought this quote from the ever-classic audrey hepburn was a great way to kick off the weekend--don't you just love it?

like a breath of fresh air.

these images--of the beautiful clingstone house, in rhode island--speak for themselves, i think.

bits and baubles.

good morning, everyone! question for you: do you all read rachel's lovely blog, elephantine? if you don't, get thee to it immediately--and then click right on over to rachel's fabulous etsy shop, which she just opened and which is stocked with lovely, lovely jewelry that i, quite honestly, am coveting.
