have a terrific weekend!

happy friday! the weekend is just around the corner, what are you up to?
i am indulging in a much needed day off today. i had a list of plans and haven't started one of them yet. maybe that's a good thing! i'm on the hunt for a new library book. i live down the street from a library and there is something so relaxing to me lately about walking on summer afternoons to the library to pick out my next book. it's the simple things sometimes.

i also hope to take a while and poke through one of my favorite vintage/used clothing stores in boston. it's been a while. in between that you'll find me taking a nap, savoring summer and planning a december get-away. i hope that your weekend is everything you want it to be.

and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

would be SO fun to go watch

i've always called living near the water, living near "the edge". it's where i'm most happy. now i know why.

wishing i had a beautiful summer yard for this set, was my favorite game growing up.

playing with words

liking these snippets saved from pinterest text boards, just for fun...

artist feature: mark borthwick

one of the things that i love playing with the most when it comes to apps like instagram is light. so speaking to that, i'm completely inspired today by the dreamy color splashed photography of mark borthwick...

how about you? do you love playing with light filters too? there is something magical about the way light transforms a scene or setting. i love this today. enjoy!

savoring summer

10 luxurious ways to savor summer outside...and amazing higher end company finds to boot.
if you are entertaining or hosting an amazing summer social, i've rounded up some really fabulous pieces, summer outdoor wow tables and seating, from classic to downright sleek and modern.

images 4 & 5 light up (what?!)...so imagine your landscaped lawn leading out to a farm, or the ocean or any one of these carefully placed in a commercial swanky cocktail setting?! so fun! and there is something so special about summer in white. don't you think? enjoy!

what are you up to? anything fun? i'm in the mood to try some new summer recipes, (see some below) i get in a rut eating the same meals, feel like branching out! i also just signed up for netflix, so i have a feeling i'll be binge watching my favorite show.

in between that i hope to finish this book (if you are in the market for a juicy summer reading series, this guy is legit! you can't stop reading), i'll be looking for a new summer wine and sleeeeeeeping in.

have a fun weekend!

what are you up to this weekend? anything fun?
it's been a grey week in my part of the world but sun is on the horizon, yes! sunday might be a swimming/beach day for me. i love swimming in the ocean in the summer months, as much as i can. there is something transformative about it, it revives me somehow.

i'm also on the hunt for some new planters. i have plants outgrowing current pots but i'm picky, i like finding out of the ordinary planters. are you the same? in between that i'll be playing with my new hair cut, which went something like this! i love it! hey, have yourself a fun weekend!

and it's friday saturday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

a beautiful installation.

pretty in black and white.

how fun is this rose bun cuff?

serious about this coffee table. just so gorgeous!

dreamy interior styling.


and i guess this is for real...but really reminds me of this.

sconce love (and such a great price!).

these antonio acrylic chairs are amazing.

would be so beautiful for outdoor entertaining on a summer night.

just bought these tailored summer shorts in light birch.

loving this dining table for small spaces.

wonderfully dramatic gold earrings.

an impressive new tile line coming to out soon.

this tepee chair in blush looks so comfy.

6 eye catching restaurants.

these colors for summer.

veeeery into this clay color lately so i'm loving this maxi dress.

this pinecone table lamp.

has to be one of the most amazing bathroom makeovers. (check out the slide with the ceiling fan!)

oh & i listened to a great podcast on the train this week. about nyc principal ballet dancer wendy whelan of her 30 year career and about retiring from such a visible position. it speaks to identity, longevity, the rarity of knowing what you were meant to do.
