alligator museum

You never know what you will notice when you walk around New Orleans, this alligator museum is just down the street, and I’m so intrigued as to what is inside.  We took these pictures while shooting the Langford Market City Guide, and these jeans are my absolute fav. Now, I wouldn’t call them a Lucky Girl Find {they are pricey} but I’m 5’11” and they are extremely long and oh so soft, so for me they are worth the investment.

pulled together casual

This time of year I feel like I have two extremes when it comes to dressing, super casual for running errands, baking and gift wrapping and fun and glamorous for holiday parties and cocktails. I picked up a few new pieces from the Loft last weekend for both occasions, however I want to go back for a few more casual pieces, how great are these pieces to throw on, yet still looked put together.

one for you, one for me

‘Tis the season, to start gift shopping. I was browsing over at West Elm today, and came across so many great gifts. Ones that would be so fun to give, and that I would love to receive! How great are the book ends?! Only $19, and the pouches, you can get those monogrammed. All gifts under $25!

give the gift of DIY

I had a set of wooden kitchen utensils lying around and decided to give them a little makeover, a super simple DIY, and one that turned very boring kitchen utensils into something more exciting to use. With the holidays upon us, I love the idea of giving a set of these with a fun platter or set of kitchen towels. The whole project only took about 20 minutes and I just added more white to the paint mix to create the ombre effect.

for the fashionista

I can’t help but start gathering ideas for Christmas gifts, and one of my favorites to give {and receive} has to be books. I love a good coffee table book and it’s a great gift for the person who has everything. These fashion focused books are perfect for the fashionista in your life. Not to mention, they are all on Gilt, and the prices happen to be just right.

can’t forget color

As soon as the cooler weather rolls in, it seems everyone {including myself}, reaches for dark, neutrals and subdued clothing. This year I am going to strive to bring a little color into my winter wardrobe. So often I just pile on all black and head out the door, or throw on neutrals and call it a day. I am challenging myself {and you} to not forget the color this winter season. add color
