weekend in review

“your hair may be brushed, but your mind’s untidy. you have had about seven hours of sleep since Friday. no wonder you feel that lost sensation. you are sunk from a riot of relaxation.” – Ogden Nash

*sigh* it was a wonderful & relaxing weekend in wiesbaden.

’tis the season!

no, no. not that season…not yet, at least.

i am obsessed with all things fall. the crisper temps, foods & flavors, cozier clothes –
i love it all.

right now, sweaters in muted tones have me tickled pink, er, gray. i love that they don’t try to compete with the brilliant colors of the season; rather, allowing them to take center stage and shine.

here are some lovelies i’m currently lusting after.


The Envy of Fall by bellathirty

here’s to warm wednesdays! bella.

coloring your world

rarely do i succumb to of-the-moment trends. often, they take too much time to grow on me, or are in direct contrast to my style personality. this spring, however, i have been tickled pink, coral, neon, mint and gold at some of the must-haves of the season. one of my most favorite color trends emerging is the union of corals and mints.

there are so many interpretations to each of these hues, and not one of them is incorrect. stay gracefully on trend with a dominance of one and mere pop of the other, or energetically announce your arrival with a complete mix & match. either way, this is one color scheme i am completely on board with.

what do you think? any spring trends you’re surprisingly attracted to?

have a brilliantly colorful monday!

it’s friday!

… and a good one to boot!

one of the fondest memories i have of growing up was buying an annual easter outfit with my dad. off we would go in search of the frilliest dress we could find. the more tulle, lace
& bows, the better; frou frou dresses my mama called them. a nod to tradition, here are some grown up frou frou dresses that are beyond decadent & deliciously frothy.
