Fave Spring Color

My fave color for spring is actually two colors - black & white
The eternally chic combo was all over the runways for Spring 2013.
This trend is everywhere and offered at high and low price points.
See a few of my favorite black and white pieces below.

Must Have: Chambray Shirt

A chambray shirt is so versatile and an absolute must for spring! 
They come in a variety of washes so the outfitting options are endless. 
You can pair your chambray shirt with black jeans, wear one over a sundress, 
or try a denim on denim look (just be sure the washes are different.)
Check out the celebrities below for more styling inspiration.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies



One of my fondest memories was coming home from school and smelling fresh chocolate chip cookies that my Grandma Audrey had baked. I have always followed the Nestle Toll House recipe on the back of the bag, but for the first time ever, I added two extra ingredients to the recipe I have known by heart since I was 14. I added a package of instant vanilla pudding to the batter, making them extra thick and fluffy. I also sprinkled freshly ground sea salt on the cookies right after removing them from the oven. I will admit, I was doubtful that they would be as delicious as the original, but they were even better!

Stacked

{thin gold rings - Etsy; silver + gold x ring - Tiffany&Co; chevron ring - Asos}

I love stacking rings for a dainty yet eclectic look. I've mixed a variety of metals, textures 
and sizes in the photo above. Adding knuckle rings to the equation lends a bit of edge.

Currently Obsessed

Flea Market Finds

{Vintage Coach Station Bag}

I found the cognac color of this bag a few months ago at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and love it so much I couldn't pass up getting the black one too as soon as I spotted it! So happy I found this classic bag in both colors, and in great condition, considering the Station bag was created in the 1980's. These are definitely my best flea market score!!


{His and Hers Crown Hooks & a Vintage Saucer}

Greg and I loved these King & Queen Crown hooks for our keys. 
I picked up this little floral saucer to hold my rings.


{Wood Jewelry Box with Glass Top}

I have been looking for something to house my jewelry so that Zoey couldn't get to it. 
She loves to play with my rings and bangles on the dresser. This jewelry box is exactly what I was looking for. 
Greg and I are going to up-cycle it so stay tuned for the DIY before & after post.

{Play Date, Avenue Maintain, E-nuf is E-nuf, Turquoise & Caicos, Mezmerised, Big Spender}

I'm loving these Essie polishes in pastels and bold colors for Spring. I can't decide which one I want to try first!
They match my "favorite things tray" so well I'm considering keeping them on display all season.

Zoey


My boyfriend moved in about 3 weeks ago and as a belated birthday present, he took me to the shelter to pick out a kitten!
It has been one week since Greg and I brought Zoey home, and I'm falling more and more in love every day. 
We adopted this sweet girl from the Lange Foundation, who was so helpful and made the experience amazing.
My studio is now packed with the three of us, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my little family!
The camera roll on my phone is now 96% Zoey so I'll share a few of my faves.
