Loving...

This fantastic acrylic and suede bib necklace by Otto (makes me want to put hubby to work cutting some pieces of acrylic for me...hmm)


This genius wedding -- and I typically don't get all swoony over weddings (especially really bright, whimsical ones... I'm usually go for the woody, boho/glam numbers), but this one is so lovely and clever and...well, happy.

And her dress. Holy cow that dress.


This beautiful ombre pillow (found via the lovely mrs. french)


Lauren's perfect taupe tank (oh and that signet ring on her pinkie too... love. love. love.)


This suede wrap bracelet from land's end canvas.

As a side note, ever since I went to lunch with my incredibly stylish friend Lauren, who happened to be sporting an armful of bangles, I've been obsessed with piling them on...it's sort of the arm version of a statement necklace. The key (I think) is to mix good stuff with costume stuff and metal (gold and brass for me) with something soft like maybe a friendship bracelet or the suede number above...

Oh and it's only $6.

(and as another side note, I was recently on land's end's site buying some shoes for the girlies {and yes, that bracelet too}, and I used their online help option. It was completely fantastic...man online shopping has come a long way.)


This dreamy vintage painting from Erie Basin (I'm dying to visit Erie Basin in real-life...)


And in what might possibly be the most random inclusion on a "loving" list ever, this ping pong table, which I'm dreaming of putting on our back patio...I have all sorts of visions of sipping gin and tonics and playing table tennis with Bryan to a steady playlist of Vampire Weekend.

Weird I know.

I'm in love with that painting! I always crush on unattainable things ;) The ping pong table would be a blast. My husband has been wanting one for a while and after seeing the bright blue one in Windsor Smith's house http://bit.ly/cejQOt, I'm on board too!

There's an additional 20% off the Lands End Canvas sale stuff today too. I just grabbed a bracelet and a slouchy little sweater for $20. I've been curious to check it out.

I was at that wedding!!! The bride is my neighbor, and she hid that amazing dress in my closet until the big day. It was the happiest, most loving fun celebration I've been to in a long time.

I've been bitten by the bangle bug. Now if only I can figure out how to not make noise with them at work. They all bang against the desk!

I'd love a ping-pong table! Just need to get the patio set first... It's such a great summer evening activity.

Torrie said...

Okay, so first the chalkboard commonality... and now the ping pong table!

I love ping pong tables!! I got one for a gift as a kid and was so happy. The best gift ever. So, I say, "Go for it." Not weird at all:).

Melissa said...

Agreed that her rings are so pretty!

Clare B said...

The taupe top is so very pretty - but I can't get past either of her rings!

Erie Basin is fantastic. I have been a follower for a while. Love all the vintage jewels. Never have been to the shop in Brooklyn? I think that is where it is.

As for the ping pong table? Get one ASAP, the fun never stops. We have had the goofiest tournaments at our house.

Get the ping pong table! We had one on our back patio, and whenever I play ping pong, I have my parents' soundtrack (The Mamas & the Papas, Peter, Paul, & Mary, the Beach Boys, etc.) in my head. You'll be making such memories for the girlies and their friends.

And that wedding dress is killah. Love!
