happy weekend.

Happy weekend y'all! Tomorrow my little family and I will be making our way down to Palm Beach for a leisurely birthday celebration for yours truly. I'm pretty stoked for some much-needed family time fun in the sun (and hopefully some shopping, too)!  

What kinds of shenanigans will you guys be getting into? Whatever your plans may be, enjoy!


luxe for less.

Waylande Gregory was a sculptor and American icon whose work is just as relevant today as it was 70 years ago.  He literally "broke the mold" when it came to ceramic techniques.  With his work featured in the Smithsonian, Whitney and New York Metropolitan museums, owning one of his pieces would undoubtedly be a luxury.  But of course, they do come at a hefty price tag.  This Waylande Gregory Small Tiger Orange Bullet Bowl may be one of the few items that isn't unattainable.  I'd love to have one to display some of my most precious jewels or as a catch-all on my desk.  I must admit, these C. Wonder Animal Dessert Plates achieve the same aesthetic for a fraction of the price...they may not be made with the same craftsmanship or 22k gold, but I think they'll do!

Check out more of some Waylande Gregory goodness here and here.


birthday wishlist.

Solo Headphones, $199.95, Beats By Dre  |  Reasons 'Ain't Laurent' T Shirt, $59.07, ASOS  |  
Jo Malone London Grapefruit Cologne, $60.00, Neiman Marcus  |  Celine Graphic Sunglasses, $311.00, Designer Sunnies  |  Alexis Bittar Chain Link Ring, $95.00, Nordstrom  |  Xhiliration Kahsah High Top Wedge Sneakers, $28.00, Target  |  3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel, $825.00, Saks

My 28th birthday is right around the corner so I thought I'd put together a little list of things that I've been coveting lately.  I know, I know, maybe a wishlist at this age is a tad bit ridiculous, but I love giving and receiving gifts (be honest, you do, too) so why not? The 'Ain't Laurent' T shirt and Celine sunnies are uber-popular right now, as I'm sure you've seen most celebs rocking the glasses and the shirt floating around the blogosphere, but I can't help it, I dig them! If I could have just one item it would definitely be the Pashli Satchel...did I tell you I have a handbag obsession? It's structured shape is classic and lady-like, and will transition so easily from summer to fall and beyond.  Instead of opting for a basic black or camel leather, the cobalt blue will make a statement and add some impact to any outfit! Sure, it's an investment, but a bag like that is totally worth it! A girl can dream, right?


h&m home.

Can y'all believe these glam home decor pieces are from H&M?! They have so many items to decorate your home ranging in styles from sweet florals to edgier, moodier accents, like the ones you seen above.  Not only is everything super cute, but super affordable, too!  You just can't beat the luxe look at a good price!
