How about a little J.Crew to brighten up your Tuesday morning? The beginnings of the retailer’s spring collection arrived online last week, and I’m completely smitten! The looks are comprised of tailored classics  punched up in spring’s brightest hues (take a peek at this red-orange trench!). I’m crazy about this fitted chambray blazer, and I’ll definitely be investing in some new colors options of my favorite Blythe blouse (the neon rose one has my name written all over it). Check out this cheery collection right here


Sunday nights are so much better during awards season, don’t you agree? I spent last night curled up on my couch (in my new J.Crew pajamas) watching the SAG Awards. The show itself was short and sweet compared to the Globes, but the red carpet was just as glamourous. There were so many gorgeous looks! Red seemed to be the color of the evening with several starlets including Sofia Vergara and Kyra Sedgwick donning the bright hue. Michelle Williams blew me away in her red Valentino gown. The lace detailing on that dress is so beautiful. The styling was so right on, too – simple makeup, simple accessories.   I absolutely adored Emma Stone’s black Alexander McQueen dress. The fit-and-flare dress along with her bold red lips felt very old Hollywood glamour to me. Rose Byrne definitely took the biggest fashion risk of the evening, and, in my option, it paid off. I loved that Elie Saab jumpsuit! Super chic – and it still had enough sparkle for a red carpet. Any favorites? Countdown to the Oscars is officially on!

I’m over at Sadie + Stella today sharing a peek of my living room for their “Favorite Room” series. My new place is still a work in progress (how is it possible that I am still unpacking things?), but the living room came together quite nicely, if I do say so myself. Head over there and check it out! I would love to hear your thoughts. 


Am I the only one who hasn’t seen this? I just discovered Hermés’ “Paris Mon Ami,” and I’m so inspired! The blog is the second installment of last year’s J’aime mon carré and offers a dazzling view into the world of Hermés through the eyes of four girls who are from four different corners of the world (London, Tokyo, New York, and Paris). Photographed by Craig McDean, the stunning images show the young women sporting piles of the enamel bangles and wearing their scarves every which way (lots of inspiration there). There’s even a section called “Bangle Paradise” – need I say more? Check it all out right here
