Loving...

The entire group of (incredibly) "stylish women over 40" over on Refinery 29, but especially Brooke Williams, on whom I have long harbored a huge girl crush. I love how laid-back and mellow and just generally cool she seems.

And then there's this quote from her Refinery interview:

"When I was 29, I went to an incredible dinner party filled with interesting, open, stylish, creative people all of whom were in their mid to late 30s. I wanted to be them so badly. And I remember them all telling me that my life was only just about to get good. And they were right. So, I figured my 40s had to be even better. So far they have."

This pretty much sums up how I felt my entire 20s. I couldn't wait to be in my 30s. I thought everything really great would happen in my 30s.

Happily, I was right.

Emily and Jen's easy rhubarb juice...and well, pretty much everything else about their magical world.



Garance's peek inside the amazingly stylish Amanda Brooks' house... (And for the record, Amanda = another long held girl crush.)


Peter Shire's splatter paint mugs in the Oui online pop-up shop...

And how awesome was the actual pop-up shop? Dreamy, yes?

This girl snapped by Vanessa Jackman during Paris fashion week... The gorgeous dress, the low-key hair and (seemingly) non-existent makeup, the lack of bits and baubles to distract. It's just totally timeless and lovely and perfect in every way.

Such a gorgeous post. Comes at a great time too, I just turned 25 and was feeling miserable, like time was flying by and I wasn't accomplishing enough. Good reminder that the best is yet to come.
