on my mind...

  • How much fun it is to wear frilly bloomers around the house.

  • These killer boots by Isabel Marant.

  • Dunkin Donuts iced (vanilla) lattes. New favorite.

  • How I really want to watch Garden State again...

...and how cool Natalie Portman is.

  • How much I love raw almonds as a tasty snack.

  • Rachel Zoe. So excited she's back on. I'm unabashedly on the bandwagon.

  • Dashboard Confessional and Cage the Elephant
(e.g. "Stolen" and "Ain't no Rest for the Wicked")

  • And of course...FALL.
Hello scarves, boots, and tights.
Hooray for crisp air, blustery days warmed by hot coffee, pumpkins, crunchy leaves...

Isabel Marant - Fall09

Sienna Miller is back.
She got everything right at this screening of G.I. Joe a couple weeks ago.
I mean everything.

We'll start with the gorgeous smile.

Followed by some exquisite H. Stern jewelry.
Oh, and flawless makeup. Love the red lips.

A stunning YSL dress.
I'm so in love with this thing...

The back is cool too.

Yeah, more of that jewelry.

Perfect vintage curls.

Did I mention the dress?

I'm just gonna go ahead and throw this out there:
This could be her best look ever.

Silly absent me. I'll be around to visit soon.

by the sea

This cottage is the stuff (my) dreams are made of.
It has everything going for it.

Old, weathered white wood and furniture.

Cozy eccentricity.

Flowers and books and peace.

Wellies and ladders and lanterns!
(Oh my)

Old world feel.

Unfortunately, these pictures have been sitting in my inspiration folder for so long that I don't know where they came from. And I have no picture of the outside.

But I like to think that this place is by the sea.
It pretty much has to be.
