Whether you were enjoying the summer sipping cape cods in… Cape Cod? Or maybe Martha’s Vineyard? Or coastal Maine… The point is you were either somewhere non-tropical with mainly tolerable weather, or you were sweating the days away in stormy south Florida like me.
Hopefully you soaked up as much summer fun as possible and are ready to bid adieu, as today marks the final day of this fabulous season. I am more than ready for the cooler weather, which has not quite arrived yet down here, and I mark this last day of summer with a tribute to a wonderful summer color: white. Fear not the old adage that has us packing away our whites once Labor Day hits. Oh no, I do not abide by this silly rule. To prove that white can transition far beyond the three golden months, I’ve put together a montage of awesome clothes and accessories that can transition beautifully into fall. And just for good measure, some gorgeous white home interiors to keep the inspiration flowing.
Worry not- summer may be over, but summer whites never fade (as long as you wash with bleach).
This living area looks so calm and peaceful enveloped entirely in white.
This white bedroom with whitewashed shutters is gorgeous. The photographs behind the bed lend some personality and grittiness to an otherwise pristine room.
The worst part about going on vacation is packing for it. Everyone knows this, and we all put it off until the last minute (I’m not the only one, right?). This often leads to some serious stress before a trip. The art of dressing chicly for the airport? I’ve had that down pat since I was 12- and multiple seat upgrades to show for it 😉 The art of packing light? Haven’t exactly perfected that one yet.
So I had planned to spend my lunch hour today browsing Missoni’s debut collection at Target that finally launched this morning after months of (well-worth-it) hype. However, word quickly spread that not only were the stores a madhouse with everything sold out by 9:30 am, but the website was down due to other crazies like me who couldn’t wait to get their own discounted Missoni goods. Luckily, I kept trying and although Target.com is down again, I managed to get through and quickly buy the items I wanted.
I managed to snag both home and fashion items. Can’t wait until I can add my new Missoni bathing suit, coffee mugs, picture frame, and jewelry organizer to my collection! And although mixing up a cocktail in the zigzag cocktail shaker would have been tres chic, it was sold out by the time I got through online. Time to start hitting up Ebay!
There’s more to life than just area rugs and paint schemes. So, with September upon us, it’s time for a makeover. And what better time than now? New season (the best one, no?) = fresh starts, back-to-school clothes shopping(!) (even though I graduated college 4+ years ago), and gorgeous-crisp- inspirational weather. This all reeks to me like it’s high time to usher in the new. My blog will be getting a major facelift, from layout to content.
A girl can’t subsist on interior design alone. So, I’m going to introduce some new topics. A few of my favorite things: fashion, food, furniture,
fotography photography. Damn, it would be so catchy if they had all started with the letter F. Anyway, that is my grand plan- hope you enjoy!
It seems like everywhere you turn mid-century modern designs are popping up again. From clothes (think the new Mad Men Collection at Banana Republic– which I can’t get enough of) to replica Eames chairs on all the flash-sale sites, this 60-year old style is back in a big way. Luckily for you there’s an inexpensive way to give in to your design cravings. Check out my latest and greatest picks that I can’t wait to fill my house with via my collage above (love you Polyvore) and see where to buy em below! My first choice? The Jackie O Warhol print of course.
