As August winds down, I am drawn to super punchy colors like this fun outfit (though for work I often tone things down to a bright lip).
I haven’t done a links post in forever and I’m excited to be back on the train!
A and I finally tried Tatte Bakery last weekend and it TRULY lived up to the hype. Now I want to take one of her pastry classes!

It was high time I replaced by 7 year old PC from freshman year of college. I am proud to say I bought myself a MacBook without using credit. I’ll be using this guide a lot in the coming weeks!

This New York townhouse is a stunner!

inspired / color combination

J. Crew 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?

wed / bouquet

I often say flowers are so pretty that I want to eat them…this rustic meets classic meets Southern bouquet looks delicious! I love the subtle pop of color and the greenery.

three little spaces / closets

I’ve spotted some really amazing closets around the interwebs recently, including the amazing closet/office of Rachel Parcell from Pink Peonies!

wed / gowns

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.

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!

local / haymarket

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?
