Insert state pun here

I remember when Come on Feel the Illinoise came out and my friends and I OBSESSED over how good it was (ahem, Steven?). I listened to that album to death, particularly all over the Moscow Metro. I am so shocked I haven't bought the new album yet, especially because what I've heard has damn good. Do you have the album?

Did you see this over on Garance Dore (clearly I'm catching up on her blog)? First, how hilarious is the little story that goes with it? It made me miss my sisters (even though they are much younger and tinier than I am) . But also, how effing awesome is Giovanna's outfit? It looks so simple and natural but so crazy at the same time, I guess that's the genius of amazingly made clothes. le sigh

Oh yes!

This just looks so right to me for some reason. I mean, I already own a men's white blazer, so I was already halfway there. But the glasses, the scarf, the messy hair... (and maybe some brightly colored jeans?) man....I want to be in that photo

newest hair cut?

I've been struggling with what to do with my bangs (no change there) but I think this is it. Thoughts?

why can't I look like this in a suit?

And also....why does a raspberry colored suit not seem totally crazy to me? What about a well cut black suit with a hot pink top and styled similarly? Would that be the runway to real world version of this?via because I'm addicted

My Wedding on Snippet and Ink

I am so excited to announce that my wedding is featured over on Snippet & Ink today. I first fell in love with Snippet & Ink not only because of the beautiful (and not in a manufactured and cookie cutter way) weddings but also because of Kathryn's unparalleled inspiration boards (peach glass and seafoam?! I think so!) She did such a wonderful job of putting together the photos, I feel so honored that my wedding was even considered to be on her blog!

oh, hello

This is not goodbye, this is an admission that right now some other things (namely work) have taken center stage and I will be blogging less frequently for a bit. I have to say, having this blog has been such an outlet for all the little thoughts and observations I have on design, fashion, weddings, music, food, and everything else but there just aren't enough hours in the day. I'm sure I won't be able to keep those observations to myself (well and PB) for long, so I'll be around, and I'll definitely be reading all the wonderful blogs I've discovered to keep myself inspired. Thanks to those who have been checking in regularly, it means a lot to me to know that anyone besides myself actually likes those little things that keep me happy and inspired every day.

What a difference a lamp makes

I am an avid follower of Apartment Therapy's Scavenger (that's how I got my Bertoia wire chairs). So I literally jumped when I saw this lamp (originally 400) for a mere 150. It took us a bit of time to get it hung in our living room, but I swear it has made the entire room more chic.

ps. I never provided any follow up on my gallery wall, so I thought I'd show it off here.
pps. sorry the pictures here...well, suck, taking pictures of lights is not easy. I'm so professional!

Wednesday = Halfway

My goal for last weekend was just to relax. In fact, I can't remember a weekend when I cared so little about organizing or straightening up. On Friday we had a wonderful dinner at Capital Grille.* It was one of those beautiful nights with great cocktails, views of the capital, wedge salads, and flowing conversation. Then, on Saturday we slept in and lounged around with Grizzly (do you think dogs understand what a hug is? Or do they just think, "huh, this is odd"). And on Sunday I had my Russian lessons and then saw the King's Speech (Have you seen it yet? It is really quite stunning). Then we went to Georgetown and ate crabcakes and friend shrimp at Tacklebox.
This weekend I am looking forward to getting drinks with my lady friends on Friday and a game meat themed dinner party on Saturday....oh and an 8 mile run on Sunday. You?

**We had a wonderful time, and the food was great, but if you just want a great steak in the DC area, go to Ray's the Steaks: it's about half the price and just as good if not better (but you don't get a view of the Capital).
