fashion friday | double date night & lazy saturday

Happy Friday!

What a week it has been.  Major life changes are happening and I have lots to be thankful for (more on that later).  So, naturally, I booked myself busy every night this week.

Tonight, S and I are heading to The Park for a double date with one of our favorite couples, M & J.  I think I’ll throw on something like this.

Since the weather is supposed to be warm but rainy (and since I’ve been traveling like crazy), I’m planning on having a lazy Saturday.  Perhaps a movie marathon with S or a whole day of reading…we’ll see what strikes my fancy after my first morning of sleeping late in longer than I can remember.

What’s your favorite date night ensemble?  What’s your favorite lazy day activity?

adventure day | a fashionable visit to the bbg

A few Sundays back, S took me on a little day date to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and then to eat at Frankies (Michelle Williams was eating with her family a few tables away!).  I HIGHLY recommend both.

Here are some snapshots of our day.

Have you been to any of the botanical gardens?  We went to the NYBG last winter, and I can’t rave enough about both of them.

Like what I’m wearing?  Get it here:

lighten up | playful design

I love a perfect and elegant room as much as Queen Elizabeth, but sometimes we just need to be in a space where rolling-on-the-floor laughter feels appropriate.  I was perusing Lonny’s May cover shoot with Kelly Wearstler, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with her bright and playful home.  She does a fabulous job of incorporating joyful colors and funky accessories into living areas without sacrificing sophistication.  Just because we’re adults doesn’t mean our homes have to be serious!

Check out a few snapshots of her place below as well as some other fun spaces I love.

coffee break | family, friends, travel & art

This made me tear up.

I’m newly obsessed with this artist and I really want her book.

Neat idea.

For my married friends.

For my single ladies.

How to actually DIY.

Whoa.

New sunnies in action yesterday at The Hampton Maid
