. fashion * ageless style 2 .

a few days ago... a quick dash into the market to find everything needed
for a cool summer supper and my ageless style muse is standing 
at the gourmet coffee center grinding fresh coffee... if you will remember
i first saw her months ago and she has inspired me once again...

her outfit:
white linen pants ~ pale tank
white cardigan ~ ballet flats
dark glasses ~ gold accessories

outfit total: $475.94

linen pants { guess }
pink tank { old navy }
gold watch { michael kors }
black+white pullover { old navy }
snake ballet flats { endless }
handbag sunglasses earrings { bombshell inc.}

ta da! no excuse not to have great style at any age...

. fashion lust * rachel mcadams .

this photo shoot was almost a year ago for Instyle (november 2010) issue...
i love it just as much now as then... the fashion and the lighting and the
setting and the furniture...oh the furniture, i'm over the moon for it and
rachel mcadams, who is absolutely breathtaking! she is whispering to me...
MUST HAVE lavender skirt with huge pockets with black
top and orange collar for fall this year!
must have, must have, must have...

. twinkle lights .

life gets so busy with this and that... and sometimes we all forget
the smallest most beautiful things.
but thousands of fireflies in a field behind our home each night
reminds me to stop and enjoy humble beauty.

. inspiration * the ocean .

it's as if the ocean was the inspiration for this lovely dining room...
and i can think of not much better to inspire someone than warm sand
between toes, salty cool air, and ripples of aqua and turquoise and white 
water stretching as far as the eye can linger...

. the hunt for quality .

recently i read an article about the wonderful designer anya hindmarch...
my interest was perked, then i visited her website and i feel head over heels.
i am constantly on the hunt for timeless quality and items with soul... in today's 
world that is something quite rare, but anya is making her mark. 
and what a fine mark it is...

. house love * bungalow kitchen .

i just love magazines...there is no better treat for me, 
i adore digital magazines as well, but there is something about
crisp beautiful pages in a new print magazine...
and this month's issue of House Beautiful "living large in 
small spaces " does not disappoint. the lovely kitchen above
graces the front page and the entire 1,050sq ft. bungalow is
featured inside.... it is beyond wonderful.


. you need this... * tomato blossom .

summertime is filled with so many wonderful
things from the garden... and fresh plump tomatoes
have been a long time favorite. a thick slice sprinkled with sugar 
brings back childhood summers...

i am not usually one to stray from my favorite candles 
but...... i found a unique scent this summer ~ tomato blossom ~ 
i am intrigued and falling a bit in love with it. 
with notes of rustic vine and rich woody tomato undertones 
it truly complex... trust me, you will be smitten!

Tomato Blossom available at Target 
(currently in-store only)

packing my prettiest things in this...

looking comfy chic wearing that...

to visit this grand house...

with a speechless moment here...

paying due respect there...

retreating and relaxing here...

and finally an exquisite ending to a lovely trip...
Happy Independence Day!
