Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one and have a Happy Easter! xx~M

A Home For The Ages

A Home For The Ages

I could feel this bewitching Lake Forest estate casting its spell over me from the moment I stepped beneath its suspended iron canopy.

Summer’s Must-Have Sweater

Summer’s Must-Have Sweater

I recently picked up the black rag & bone sweater above, and have been living in it ever since.  Not surprising, given my style aesthetic, which leans in towards the classics. In fact, my new sweater is so versatile there’s no way it wouldn’t be in heavy rotation in my closet right now. I’ve worn it with black skinny jeans and heels as well as white denim and sneakers.

The Sporting Life

The Sporting Life

I love its colors – cobalt, red, and white.

I love its sporty aesthetic and embroidered lettering.

But what I love most about this bomber jacket is that its former owner was my father.

A Classic Returns

A Classic Returns

The hair accessory made famous by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, is back and bigger than ever. The headband – this season the wider the better – is fabulously versatile. Take it from someone who has wildly unruly hair – throwing on a headband can literally save the day.

Converse Cool

I’m not exactly sure when I got my first pair of Chuck Taylor All Stars, but I know it was a long time ago because I vividly remember lacing them up when I was in junior high. (Like I said, a long time ago ;) )
