Little Love Notes

Hello, weekend and Hello, May!  Is it just me or is this year just flying right on by?  As is this pregnancy of mine – we hit the third trimester yesterday and I still can’t believe baby girl will be here so soon.  This weekend, I’ll be attempting to slow down just a bit and start to organize for the little one’s arrival.  Any big plans?

A few little love notes to get you through the weekend …

Dear easy peasy flower arranging, well isn’t this sweet.  I’m off to collect little mis-matched vases.

Dear Brides, so excited to see Olivia Palermo, everyone’s favorite girl-to-watch, on the cover of the upcoming issue.  Check out the stunningly chic sneak peek, here.

Dear vacation dreaming, though I have no concrete plans to go anywhere, I know I’d pack this whimsical white lace caftan dress in a heartbeat.  And if I was hopping a plane, I’d probably copy Natalie’s itinerary to a T ( … Paris, Spain, Morocco and the vineyards in the south of France … swoon!)

Dear color shy, Vogue has the expert tips on how to wear Spring’s best bright shades (for the lipstick novice.)

Dear Call Me Cupcake, macarons and pink neapolitan cake combined, now that’s just brilliant.

Dear adorably colorful office space, well aren’t you fabulous.

Dear Emma Stone, you win at life.

Dear shoe lovers everywhere, the Sophia Webster x J.Crew collaboration is just gorgeous.

Dear mamas, where did you hunt for nursery furniture?  We’re struggling to make a decision.  I want a balance between vintage and modern, and it should be something that grows with baby girl (i.e., deep drawers, good quality).  Any suggestions?

Dear weekend baking, thick and chewy {lower sugar} oatmeal raisin cookies, I’m coming back for seconds.

  3. ugh, now I want macarons. yum.
    day 5 of diet not going well, already started the day with a teaspoon of nutella 😉
    i already suggested dwellstudio in my email a minute ago but I have to mention here again the gorgeous mid-century crib- white with gold tipped feet.
    I’ve seen the white crib with brass tipped feet as well. Not sure if there’s an option to customise it.

      Diets and I do not get along … no idea what I’ll do post-baby! And I love the dwell studio crib … gold feet = amazing. Just e-mailed you back! 🙂

  4. sorry, meant to say that the feet come silver but i’ve seen them in gold too.
