I'll admit it, I'm a huge dork and love to make inspiration boards on my free time. Anything and everything inspires me and when I saw this UH-MAZING opal ring from Anthropologie (my birthstone!) I just had to design a board around it. Not only would I kill for a Laduree macaroon right now, but that Amsale dress makes me swoon every time I lay my eyes on it... it's beyond perfect!

JCrew happens to be one of my favorite stores and this season they're all about the stripes. I know stripes have been around forever but I just don't see them fizzling out anytime soon. There's something so classic about this preppy pattern that makes me want to jump on the next sailboat that comes my way... or just lounge at the Georgetown Waterfront and watch the boats sail by.

summer lovin

I'm pretty sure I dream about summer all year round and I would just die to throw this casual soiree. Sadly, I don't have a sprawling farm at my disposal, nor the cash flow to throw this type of party but I think I'll be just as happy with my friends, that dress, a few strands of cafe lights, and those watermelon mojito popsicles in my tiny backyard. Is it the weekend yet?! xoxo (and welcome!)
