...the outfit of the week

I love this comfy-chic look. Any outfit I can wear that combines some fall trends with a sweatshirt and ray bans is perfection in my book.

...pumpkin baked goods

Before last week I hadn't baked anything in a looong time. So I made up for it by making pumpkin chocolate chip bars, puppy chow, (chex cereal with melter peanut butter tossed in powdered sugar-you know what I'm talking about. crack.) and brownies in one week. My roommates are a little grumpy with me. And now I can't stop thinking about making pumpkin bread. Or pumpkin donuts. Or pumpkin anything really. This recipe for pumpkin bread looks good and mildly healthy. Minus the TWO CUPS of splenda. Come on, just use real sugar people. I think I'll make it and replace the splenda with a cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I'll let you know how it goes! 

Also need to find an excuse to make these donut holes...

...type crush Tuesday

I don't have a theme this week...just an awesome invitation set to show you that I found on Oh So Beautiful Paper.


Happy 24th birthday my beautiful little twin queen.

I love visiting you in Columbus and am so happy we ran our first (of many I hope) half marathon together!

...rachel zoe. bah.nan.ahs.

Is anyone else out there as obsessed with Rachel Zoe as I am? So mahjor.


...brights and brights together

I'm almost as obsessed with brights pared together (especially pink and red) as I am with brights and neutrals

...trench weather

A couple days ago when I was in the grocery store wearing jeans and a pink windbreak/rainjacket looking like a slumdog, I spotted a girl sporting leggings (also slumdog potential) but she had a trench on. Making her look much more put together. Lesson - adding a trench coat makes any outfit more fabulous.

I know Rihanna looks a little bit like a muppet in the outfit but for some reason I love it.

...bow blouses

Such an effortless top to throw on with some jeans or cropped black pants for the cooler weather!

...maxi dresses for winter

I'm recently super obsessed with the idea of a maxi dress for winter. You wouldn't have to wear tights and they're suuuuper comfortable. WIth a sweater and a belt? Please?

Fall is most definitely my favorite season. (sorry to offend all you summer lovers) I can feel the air getting cooler and I love being able to sit outside without sweating my face off.

...neon pencils

So I'm going to need these. Do they come in hot pink?

...type crush Tuesday - going green

All these designs have something in common - yes they're all primarily green. But, the other colors used are really subtle, natural colors, letting the green be the focal point. 

Is this your style, or do prefer to mix lots of brights, like pink and green?! I know some of you readers are avid Lilly Pulitzer lovers...

...funfetti cupcakes

Especially those that are homemade. The boxes are just so easy and tasty but I think I must try this, do I need to wait for an upcoming birthday or can I think of another excuse...?

ps. how awesome is the word funfetti.

...designing things

Hi loveys!

I wanted to share a couple invitations I did last fall for some friends. I'm lucky to have awesome friends that ask me to design things for them often, but I'd really love to get some more experience doing this. So, next time a friend gets engaged or you have a little party I would LOVE if you would remember this and email me for rates and design ideas/samples. Also, if you'd like some business cards to hand out I would be SO happy to mail you some if you send me an email at

ps. You know how obsessed I am with letterpressing? Well, I found a studio in Baltimore that rents out presses. Which means letterpress invitations are easily attainable. Keep that in mind.

...bright jeans for fall

One of the fall trends I'm most excited for is colored denim. I love the bright blue but maybe its not crazy enough a departure from regular jeans? Red is pretty adorable though...
