so fresh and so clean, clean: zara april lookbook

looky what popped up in my inbox…zara april lookbook!  loving all the crisp whites and creams, and pops of brights and neons.  the buttoned up look is still going strong, which is perfect for me, since i have absolutely no not much cleave to show off anyway.  

{think i need these all}

april showers: the burberry trench

the past two mornings, i’ve woken up thinking in was in ireland — rainy and cloudy, mild temps and lush greenery.  a perfect start to spring.  i often mix up dreams and reality, but in my dreamworld (if i really were in ireland), i’d just hop across the sea to london to pick up one of these incredible burberry trenches…and model-walk in it all day.  has anyone else really perfected the trench?  not like this…

{i’m dying.  geo beads.}

{can’t go wrong with a classic.}

{love this pink for spring.}

{leather on anything for me, please.}

{patterned sleeves.  i’d wear this every day…swear}

{army trench. big collar.}

{am i still dreaming? woven. leather. pick me up.}

plus, who else is totally crushing on cara delevingne and eddie redmayne?!

spring fever: pastel shoes

ever since seeing footage from louis vuitton’s SS12 show, i’ve been crushing on pastel shoes (see above…swoon).  now that spring is here, it’s time to bust out these soft, feminine colors.  obsessed with all of these.  get. on. my. feet.

apartment crush: taylor tomasi hill

i’ve got serious love for TTH.  we’re both dallas girls who left the lone star state; she’s in nyc, i’m in arkansas…both livin’ the dream.  well, she’s living THE dream, and thanks to street style photogs, i’m living through her!  we all know she’s got amaze fashion sense, so i wasn’t surprised to see she has an eye for interiors as well.

{i look this cute too when i cook}

{now i want trees in my living room}

{those are real stuffed ducklings}

 {greenery and natural lights}

{someone pick me up off the floor}

 {love the pops of pink.  and the pic!}

here’s to a new year!

i may be a few days late in doing a New Years post, but it’s my first post of the New Year!  here are a few 2012 resolutions:

~ blog regularly:  i majored in journalism and love to write.  this year i hope to write more often about things i love…and not let gossip girl on netflix distract me.

~  run a 1/2 marathon: 13.1 miles is no run in the park, at least not for me, but i’m already 1/4 of the way there!

~ keep up with friends: i’m the world’s worst when it comes to keeping in touch.  not this year!  yes, i had 11 bridesmaids…i love them all dearly.

i’m also looking forward to a some exciting happenings this year:

~ new puppy!  i was reluctant when the hus wanted a new dog.  how could i love another one as much as i love axel?  –see below– but our new puppy was born christmas day (sign? god send?) and we’ll get her at the end of february.  can’t wait to snuggle up!

~ NYC baby!  my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and i are taking a girls’ trip to nyc in february.  i haven’t been since i was 18.  and the best part of all…we’ll be there during NYFW!  are you freaking kidding me?!!  think we can sneak into a show?

~ honeymoon!  yes, i’ve been married for over a year now.  we got married in the fall and the hus is a teacher, so we couldn’t exactly run off to a remote destination at the beginning of the school year.  so we’re finally taking a eurotrip honeymoon vacay this summer.

what are you looking forward to?   here’s to a new year.  cheers, all!
