Perfect taupe color, and patent leather! Marc Jacobs, found on Shopbop.

Just like a flea market display! These chalkboard book tags are found at Pottery Barn.

Your next DIY project: fabric-covered tacks. Damn. They're pretty little things, aren't they?

Time for a picnic! This lovely blanket by Sun Moon Lake is made from recycled cashmere.

Suiting Up

It was 86 degrees here today. It was hot. H-O-T. As in, get-me-to-a-pool-immediately hot. And it got me thinking. Summer is around the corner (or in some cases, may already be here!). Shouldn't we be prepared? I think so. Here are a few suits to consider:This suit is from Delias. So cute! I have been eyeing it for awhile.From Revolve Clothing. Simple flower pattern. But lovely.Another cutie! From Penguin, but found at Urban Outfitters. Not sure that the boyshorts style would work for me though.Great bandeau ensemble. By Victoria Secrets.

Well, don't be predictable. Show up in something different and unique. Here are a few dresses that you may want to add to your wardrobe this wedding season:I love this outfit by Myth & Ritual. It can be springy or wintery, depending on your shoe and jewelry of choice. Very sexy!What fun! This dress by Thai designer Nuj Novakhett is a knock-out.A total party dress by Anna Sui.

truly GIFTed

The holidays are coming up, and many of you may be guests at friends and family's houses to celebrate. Don't know what to bring as a hostess gift? Here are a few ideas:This is a great one! From Sur La Tabla. I have actually sent this as a gift, and my mother-in-law loved it! It's perfect because the little goats and cows are sticks with a wipey board that you can write the name of the cheese on. Brilliant.Another great one! From Hallmark. I personally don't love the ribbon they show here on the cake plate, but that's the best part. You can pick your own neat ribbon and weave it through. What's also nice is that this gift will probably be used to serve cake or something, while you are visiting.This is nice as a smaller gift, or an extra. These placemats are plastic and they come in many colors. From Howkins.

For the garden lover, these two bird feeders are very springy and could make a unique gift. Top by Red Envelope. Bottom by Eva Solo.

Primark! Where have you been???

Oye Vey. I just discovered Primark. Sort of Zara meets H&M....fabfab. Things were stable when I found out they only have stores in the UK , Spain and Ireland, but then....I checked on Ebay....And then there was mayhem! I mean this dress above is going for $9.72. What??? And the weekender bag to the right is set at $38. These are amazingly, ridiculous prices! Clearly I will have to show my support for the line so we can get a US based store....and don't you have to too? I think so. Here are a few more images to entice you!

I love our new kitchen. We have a wall of windows. We have a chalkboard. We have pot racks. We have lots of plants. We have great black tile. All in all, we love it! But it's always good to consult other designers (or up and coming ones, B!), magazines and books. Here are just three other kitchens that I think are really inspiring:From Fearon Hay Architects - of course I love the whole chalkboard wall, but I think it super how they put the flat screen on it! Also - black walls: They show extreme confidence, and often glamour. I just think using them in a kitchen is brilliant and beautiful.On a total opposite note, this white kitchen (from Domino Magazine) is warmed up with this gorgeous extra-large fireplace. AH-mazing! (that's for you guys - J & RC!) Also, I am a big fan of the glass cannister collection lining the shelves - it adds a simple, modern twist to the space.Okay, so it's just a corner of a kitchen (found in Real Living), but I just love the use of the Train sign - or whatever it is. I think every room needs to have a surprise element. Yesterday I found a picture of a living room with a Juicy Fruit ad painted on the whole wall. Very cool. Maybe we can paint a bag of oreos up on my bedroom ceiling!
