Blogger's Favorites -- Jenny of Aubrey Road

Jenny is one of those rare bloggers that manages to convey an entire world in very few words -- a sentence here, a quote there. (I, on the other hand, fall distinctly into the category of "the wordy blogger", but I'm trying to embrace brevity a bit more...Trying.) Her aesthetic sensibility is so focused, her vision so clear, that it more than compensates for her lack of online loquaciousness. And her taste, well her taste is enviable. I inevitably walk away from a visit to her stunning blog, Aubrey Road, completely inspired. It's a good space.

So I'm happy to have Jenny take us into the weekend with some of her favorite things. The list is just as lovely as you'd expect it to be.

Without further ado, herewith Jenny's favorites. Enjoy and have a fantastic weekend friends!



WATER -- Even when I don't realize it, I need and have to have water in my life. Spending time in or around the ocean makes me feel a little wiser, more patient and generally more enjoyable to be around. (Photo via Sundry Sullen)


BLACK & WHITE INTERIORS -- I am endlessly drawn to simple, laid-back interiors that stick to a neutral palette.

SLOUCHY STYLE -- My personal style is super casual. I love simple pieces like jeans, tanks/tees, button downs and the occasional blazer. Of course Emmanuelle Alt owns this look and I love her.

SWEETS -- I don't have a sweet tooth, I have a mouth full of sweet teeth and they like to be satisfied every day. I usually pick up treats from my favorite local health food market, but I also have something homemade on hand at all times. (Photo via Orangette)


NIGHTTIME -- I've always been a natural night owl (slash borderline nocturnal). Nighttime is my favorite time of day and when I feel most energetic and creative. (Photo via North Hawaii)


WORDS -- It pains me that a lot of my books are in storage right now. However, I'm a big believer that the right words will find you at the right time in any form--magazines, a movie, tumblr, whatever. (Photo via The Black Book)


TRAVELING -- It's hard to beat the experience of visiting a new part of the world for the first time (or even visiting old favorites again and again). There are so many places to see, I hope to get to as many as possible.

STYLING. I have a deep love and admiration for photography and prop styling. When the two are combined well, I can't take my eyes off the image. The way items interact and are arranged makes my eyes very happy.

GUYS WITH TATTOOS -- A handsome guy with tasteful tattoos will always make me stare a moment or four longer.(Photo via Young Folk Society)

Great favs! I think I have a mouth full of sweet teeth, too. And I couldn't agree more about the right words finding you at the right time!
