mk&a day

I have to start out with the top image. Birkenstocks with socks? Honestly, I love it. MK&A have always done their own thing regardless if it's considered a fashion "no-no". Plus, it's quite practical for airport security, no?
Now for MK's bundled up look. It's still chilly in MN so excuse my excuse to post a coat. Love the slim silhouette, aviators and pulled back hair.
Before we say goodbye, do take note of the vintage Cartier engagement ring peeking out of the oversized sleeve.

blogger share

I have to share this outfit inspiration from Pink Peonies. Perfect way to transition from winter to spring by pairing a baby blue sweater and bright pink Valentino studded heels. Keep the rest neutral and easy. Loves!

Happy weekend!

Just some random snaps off my iphone to ring in a hopefully wonderful weekend!
Love me some planners and pens. This one is Sugar Paper LA Target line. 
A Kate Spade inspired outfit of hot pink, emerald and crisp white color combo.

my home office inspiration

my home office inspiration by glitterandtea featuring striped throw pillows

I work from home helping my husband with his business. I am the paper and pencil side while he does all the leg work and brings home the bacon so to speak. Sitting at my desk for 2 hours crunching numbers last night inspired me to redecorate and reorganize to be more efficient. But first the basics must be fun and appealing so I will actually WANT to work.

Here are my musts:
THE WALL: simple, elegant prints
a cute but functional bulletin board
wall calendar. I love Sugar Paper LA.
still in search of a clock...
THE FURNITURE: a fun, comfortable, fabric covered chair. I love Target's choices.
an Ikea desk with storage
an Ikea desk lamp
THE ACCESORRIES: flowers! I love tulips, hydrangea, succulents
Anthropologie mugs to hold pencils, pens
and last but not least I am torn between a floral or a striped (preferably navy) pillow.

Pinterest of course has great ideas.

spring nails

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I'm behind in announcing that orchid was the Pantone color of the year for 2014. Ahem, excuse me I mean *radiant* orchid. I decided to get in on the radiance with my nail color. It's perfect and fun for spring even if the weather doesn't match yet. 

 This is maybelline lusty lilac. I love the shade but the nail polish itself was not fun to apply. Let's just say it doesn't coat well. Note it's a bit deeper in person.
