wishlist wednesday | may 23

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

happy wednesday, y'all!



1. These unique Feather Inlaid + Pennant Inlaid Knobs from Anthropologie are quite striking - I love their somewhat art deco style.
2. This Draper Stripe Ash Sheet Set from Dwell Studio is neutral enough to go with several different beds but bold enough to make a statement.
3. Sugar Paper is one of my new obsessions and I love this simple arrow print because it would fit in anywhere.
4. This Summer of Love Cory pouch by Rebecca Minkoff is so stinkin' cute; I would take it everywhere.
5. These Reena heels from Kate Spade are absolutely to die for. I adore the mix of neutral colors as well as the mix of materials.

Cheers,
Ellie

the sartorialist street style, illustrated

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I recently saw this photo on The Sartorialist and fell in love with this girl's adorable and very unique style.  Katie Rodgers aka Paperfashion then did a lovely illustration of her. Both of these images are so pretty and chic!

I have somewhat of a serious weakness for beautiful lettering and calligraphy. Seriously, I get weirdly excited and inspired just looking at these lovely letters. Check out a few of my favorites:

daydreaming

Thursday, May 10, 2012

I've been feeling a little all over the place lately... lots of random daydreams of places I want to go and things I want to do. Sometimes it feels like I don't know what's next and sometimes it feels like I know exactly where I am and what I want to be doing. Anyway, here are a couple of my random inspirations as of late to sum up my erratic daydreaming.

1. I love these large framed prints and the way the take up the wall; 2. this gorgeous photo makes me excited for summer and friends and being outside and sunshine; 3. I absolutely adore this Louis Vuitton trunk and the way it's used as a side table; 4. Chicago is far and away my favorite city that I've visited, and this photo of the Chicago Riverwalk makes me want to go back more than I can say.

it's wishlist wednesday, y'all!


1. Norah Jones is out with her new album, Little Broken Hearts, and after just listening to the first single, Happy Pills, I can't wait to hear the whole thing.
2. I love this unique Sushi Queen Flatware set from Antrhopologie; very sleek and elegant.
3. This gorgeous Sophie Hulme leather satchel in color Petrol is ideal for work or travel.
4. These 3-pack Adjustable Roadhouse Rings by ASOS are a simple way to make an accessory statement.
5. Summer is on its way, and this Summer, in words print by Old Try is a perfect way to prepare for the sweet season.

cinco de mayo

Friday, May 4, 2012

according to wikipedia (the best source for anything, of course), cince de mayo is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. at any rate, it just sounds like another excuse for a holiday. here are some adorable ways to celebrate:
