color crush: light pink

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

I adore light pink. it’s so soft and feminine, don’t you think? I think this first week of June is the perfect time to take a look at some breezy summer pinks…

so what’s on your agenda for the weekend? I am just recovering from the whole camping excursion last weekend so I will probably take it easy…maybe just a little hike and hopefully a trip to the local farmer’s market.

have the happiest of fridays! xx

p.s. for the local folks: don’t forget to head out to the art galleries tonight for First Fridays! there will be some good things happening in the Pendleton Street Arts District, as always.

color crush: royal blue

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with royal blue, but lately the love is taking over…

so how do you feel about royal blue?

I have a pretty quiet weekend planned… ben has been in some pain from the sunburn he picked up at the beach last weekend so he wants to stay inside. so I’m thinking reading and working on my porch garden sounds good! and we might hit up the Greek Festival in town and grab some amazing food! what plans do you have?

happy friday!! xx

color crush: sand

Friday, May 13th, 2011

I’m heading to Hilton Head Island this weekend for some much needed fun-in-the-sun with my family! In honor of that I decided to crush on “sand” this week…a really fantastic summer neutral. I think it’s a great alternative to the darker browns, and something that can have a little more personality than cream or white. what’s your opinion?

hope you have a nice weekend too! any plans? xx

color crush: orange

Friday, May 6th, 2011

orange is a color I don’t have to try to have a crush on. if I have a color choice I’ll usually grab the orange! (unless of course pink is available). It’s so versatile…cheerful and bright for summer, warm and cozy in darker, pumpkin spice-y shades for fall, and in softer, lighter hues orange can fit in with all of your early spring pastels.

and as an added bonus, I will decorate all over with orange, whereas pink is more my favorite color to wear. I don’t have a single bit of pink accessorizing my apartment. so orange wins the overall awesome category in so many ways.

what thoughts do you have about orange…love it or hate it?

ps. local folks: be sure to come to pendleton street arts district for First Fridays tonight! you’ll find lots of fantastic galleries open. I’ll be in the studio with stylebybecca, zoa art, and crave. blossoms will be on sale for $10 and I’ll have some other special deals! xx

color crush: lavender

Friday, April 29th, 2011

I admit I’m not a huge fan of lavender. give me any other shade of purple and I’m in love, but lavender has never done much for me. It seems to be making a big splash right now, and I did find some lavender lovelies I’m rather fond of to share…

ps. did anyone else get up to watch the royal wedding? I went to a viewing party at a friend’s house. it was really wonderful, and I did love all the pomp and circumstance. I’m drinking coffee like it’s going out of style now though!

color crush: white

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

look in my closet and you will NOT find any white, other than cute sandals and some pearls. I just always shy away from it. other than a hat and romper for the beach the last time I remember buying white on purpose was my wedding dress.

I thought with Easter finally here it might be a good time to highlight it…

Pure of Heart Dress, Ruche | Silver Disc & Pearl Earrings, Ivory Cove | Subtly, Nine West | Vintage German Beads, Reduction Nation | Oysters and Pearls Dress, englishdept | White Pearl Bracelet, SugarThree

It is so delicate and sweet. what do you think about white?

I hope you have a lovely weekend and a happy Easter! xx

color crush: turquoise

Friday, April 15th, 2011

this is another spring and summer favorite of mine to wear. I also have turquoise in my bedroom. I think it is such a happy color, and it also has a lot of depth. do you wear or decorate with turquoise?

color crush: salmon

Friday, April 8th, 2011

pink is always my favorite…no matter how you package it. hot pink, light pink, melon, rose…it’s always sweet no matter what name! today I tried to find things that looked sorta “salmon” to me, but overall it’s just pretty pinks here to bless your friday.

hope you have an oh-so-happy weekend! my plans include tomorrow’s show at Palmetto Home & Garden (!!!!!!), Cambodian New Year celebration at Cambodian church on Sunday (Cambodian New Year is April 14th), and a possible trip back to Raven Cliff Falls to see if we can really find it this time.

color crush: lemon

Friday, April 1st, 2011

nothing makes me feel quite so cheerful as this warm hue…don’t you agree?

green goodness

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

well, happy St. Patrick’s Day. here are some lovely greens…

Are you wearing green today?? I’m actually not…my green is either in warm sweaters or short sleeves, and it is one of those in-between days of early spring, so I had no choices. I am just wearing pink…my default. I doubt(because it would be weird) anyone at work will pinch me. I will let you know…
