Loving...On My Birthday

It's my birthday, so I'm mixing things up with a little "Loving" on a Friday... (If you can't mix things up on your birthday, when can you?!) Ok, so first up T Magazine's feature on the insanely lovely Caroline Castiglioni (daughter of Marni founder Consuelo Castiglioni and Marni’s Director of Special Projects). I mean have  you ever seen a more chic "feeding your baby" situation than the one above. Let's just say things never looked quite like that when I was shoveling organic sweet potatoes into the girlies mouths.

Just wow...


And then there's the matter of Milton Avery's work spotted via Jamie. Stunning...


And speaking of stunning, this trio of brass stationary tray goodness via Even Cleveland. Love.


Janette's brilliant "Fashion Loves Babies" online shop. Every. Single. Thing. is perfection... But those moccasins make me crazy (in the best possible way).


This vignette in Phoebe Philo's home as featured in The World of Interiors and spotted on the fantastic blog That's Not My Age.

Also on That's Not My Age (and especially poignant on a birthday that is inching me ever closer to the big 40), some wisdom for looking great even when you're no longer 20 (or, ahem, 38).
  1. Don't wear too much make-up.
  2. Don't have Botox. 
  3. Do yoga.
  4. Do your own thing. 

Done and done.


A killer jacket and bag paired with ripped knees via Veronica Loves Archie. Normally I am not so much a ripped knees gal, but this works for me. Big time.

Happy Friday friends!

Happy Birthday. Being the same age as you - I think it's a great one. Too old for those amazing baby mocs but not too old for a little ripped knee.

Sounds like the perfect age.
