Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I was lucky enough to spend my Saturday lounging by a pool with one of my best girlfriends. We read a stack of fashion magazines and I found myself dreaming of these Prada Baroque sunnies...
(Though in reality I'm aiming for this style, which is a little more realistic for my day to day life...)
So, what were you guys up to? Any fun-in-the-sun or fantasy shopping stories to share?

For one thing, this living room:
Also, these clutches:
And finally, colorful pants, short with heels, plus the most amazing trench ever:
At the flea market this weekend, I was momentarily intrigued by a gold birdcage and stand...
... but then I became distracted by a table of vintage costume jewelry and that was that. Now, I come across the gorgeous home of fashion designer Erin Fetherston which features a beyond lovely birdcage in her beyond lovely living room and all I can think is, why didn't I pay more attention to that damn birdcage when I had the chance?
At least now I have a shopping mission when the next flea market rolls around. Oh, and by the way, Miss Fetherston's bedroom is quite lovely too...

I love oversized flat clutches right now (this one in taupe from American Apparel has been my go-to of late), and this aqua leather version from ASOS might be the perfect pick for summer. The color is divine and I love the envelope closure and gold-tone clasp. Particularly cute with neutral separates, but I think it will work with my more colorful outfits too...
I think these are the perfect accessories for injecting a bit of fun into my home and wardrobe!

I think these new cat eye sunnies from Christian Dior would be a perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. What do you think - red or purple?
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend...
While I wish I had spent the weekend lounging around in an extravagant floral caftan, with big jewelry and even bigger hair, I actually found myself cooking and gardening, which offer their own mood-brightening effects. Now if I had a million dollars, I am certain that these boldly-graphic dresses and chairs would do an excellent job brightening up my closet and home. A girl can dream...
Not that I need another animal knicknack... but this is kind of the ultimate, over-the-top critter extravaganza! A rabbit on top of a sheep on top of a deer on top of an elk, in white porcelain... and it's a candelabra too. Very, very fab!
Is everyone excited for the new John Derian collection at Target? As you know, I was a big fan of the last go-around. This collection seems even better - I'm loving the silhouette plates, and the trays shown above are truly delightful.
The new pieces won't be in stores until September 5, but starting this Friday, my favorite online sample sale, Gilt.com, is hosting a pre-sale of not only the John Derian collection, but also the new collaborations from Tucker and Mulberry! What a great opportunity to shop the lines without having to drive to eight different Targets.
Oh, and if you need a Gilt invite, click here and you will be all set....
