Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. The weather was quite crummy here in New York which actually worked quite well for me considering I was feeling motivated to clean and organize my apartment in preparation for my Mom and sister to visit on Wednesday! I have also been so busy and really craving a day to just lounge around and catch up on reading blogs, pinning recipes, etc., and today was great for doing just that!
I came across this 2009 Vogue image today via captivated by image
This modern take on a Victorian inspired look is so romantic and chic. I would love to put this on for stroll through Central Park!
Peonies are absolutely gorgeous and I try to have them in my apartment as much as possible during their short blooming season. I bought peonies that had not started to blossom and they are already in full bloom. Such a nice and simple arrangement, my Mom and sister are going to love them!
Patrick was in Austin this weekend so I treated myself to an almond chocolate croissant from Couleur Cafe
Even there are so many great resources online to find, save and share inspiration, I still really enjoy the act of going through magazines the old fashion way! I still write notes on my tears and have an extensive file system of inspiration and recipes that I reference quite often. Of course Sadie loves this spot, she keeps her eye out for squirrels and I think she feels quite cozy as she watches the passersby on the street!
I discovered a new tumblr account that I am kind of obsessed with. The images on Moods of the Moon bring back so many memories of spending weekends at my great grandparent’s house. Days spent hiking around in the countryside and wading in rivers and nights catching fireflies and eating ice cream on the front porch. Such great memories to be reminded of.
Make your start to the new week great and remember that we have a nice long holiday weekend to look forward to!
