My mom has a really large antique case with about 30 butterflies that measures around 24 by 36 inches. I have always loved it even though the butterflies are now faded but it actually works better with the look of her room that way. Anyways, the framed butterfly look is one I really love (especially the third image). I love how the new pieces are SO colorful and are available in so many different shapes and sizes. I would love to add a few singles or one medium sized piece to the "gallery wall" in my office (that has yet to be worked on at all but desperately needs to be!). How do you like your butterflies?
Whether its a piece of clothing or walls in a living room, black and white stripes make such a bold statement! Stripes can make an entire room or work great as an accent piece-a la a fabulous rug! Thick and thin, pink or purple...stripes come in all different shapes and sizes but I particularly love the chic look of black & white stripes paired with a pop of color. How do you like your stripes?
I don't usually wear costume jewelry but these fabulous pieces really have me thinking differently. A statement piece can really make an entire outfit-hello green agate necklace! I mean how can you not want to throw that on with a simple outfit for a night out (or a daytime look as well)? And statement earrings...I am really thinking I need to add a pair to my earring wardrobe (which honestly consists of about a handful of pairs since I NEVER switch my earrings). Maybe its because of my long hair? Whatever it is, I really want to give them a try. AND all of these pieces are pretty reasonable and are available here on charm and chain.
I am off to Dallas this morning for a week to visit my family. Hopefully I don't burn up while I am there since the temperatures are in the 100s every single day! I hope to get in some pool & sun time as well as some relaxing and maybe a little shopping (Neiman Marcus Last Call is right by the airport!!) So this week will be all about the heat for me!! Happy Monday and enjoy your week :)
For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of having carrera marble counters in my "dream" kitchen. I love how clean carrera looks and that every piece is different (really love the third photo & I know its not all carrera)! The first time I saw a carrera marble waterfall kitchen island...I knew it was love at first sight! Seriously, what could be better? I am completely in love and think they look so chic. What do you think of waterfall style kitchen islands, love 'em as much as me?
I have loved the maxi dress look for a while now but have not purchased one and maybe tried on only two because I felt they did not look right on my 5'1 frame. But a few nights ago I had dinner with a friend of mine and she was wearing the cutest simple black maxi dress and she's my height! I am definitely giving the maxi dress a serious looking at and now I am on the search for the perfect one. I love the flowing styles like the silk Cynthia Vincent dresses (6th photo) but think a more streamlined style would look best on me, either way I am excited to try some on! Have you tried a maxi dress yet?
