A Wink and A Smile

JCrew just posted the first round of September Style Guide images on Pinterest and this color combination caught my eye:

The pale pink with citron and army green (and a hint of burgundy) is cool, perfect for early fall, and definitely unique. I’m reminded of Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection, specifically these two looks:

This fall I think I’ll be layering my citron sweater with some army green pants/jeans and finishing off the look with my blush patent wedges.

Any particular color combinations catching your eye lately?

I realized I haven’t posted a wedding gown in awhile and think it’s high time I shared a few that have caught my eye recently. 

{1 / 2 / 3}

The first two are very much the kind of dress I’m typically drawn to and while Olivia Palermo’s Carolina Herrara wedding ensemble isn’t new news, it knocks me out every time I see it. Love it!

On Saturday, A and I went to Haymarket (the actual market, not the T stop) to pick out a ton of produce and figure out what to make later. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THE AWESOMENESS?!?!?!


For $11 we got 6 quarts of strawberries (in our over-excitement, we didn’t inspect them closely, so only about 2.5 quarts were edible), 2 pints of blackberries, a bulb of fennel, 2 lbs of potatoes, 2 eggplant, a papaya, 9 radishes, 4 jalapenos, 2 avocado, 2 tomatoes, a zucchini, and a bunch of asparagus. I will be taking FULL advantage for the remainder of the season. I even walk right past the market on my way to the gym on Fridays and never stopped to look. 

We threw veggies on the grill, but of course those berries needed some brown sugar and butter…

…and vanilla ice cream…

Delicious. I used a recipe from Pinterest

What have you been cooking this summer?

A good reminder for me. I tend to obsess a little over the decorating potential of my little apartment. But between work, social plans, and spending time at my boyfriend’s, the money is better spent making memories than buying tons of rugs and pillows.
