You guys….life!  My mind is swirling with so much life.  The life that we all are living.  You, me and the whole wide world.  The good and the bad.  The exhilarating and the devastating.  My heart sometimes feels like it is beating between breaks.  And because of that, my eyes are now wide awake to others with burdens and breaks.  Trying to carry the load or tuck it away, tirelessly, when no one is looking.

I guess I’m trying to make sense of some things that make no sense and so here I am writing it out, in the open, unpolished, and unproofed today.  I’m typing out the trials that are taking up space in my brain.  It may make no sense, but maybe to someone it will make all the sense in the world and I guess that is why I will hit publish today, rather than pondering in private in my journal.

pink floor trend via la la lovely

Have you ever thought of colored floors?  I love my white floors, and haven’t thought much of other colors beyond grey, but now I’m thinking pink.

I’m majorly crushing on this office space, located in Moscow.  The pink, although bright, really works as a neutral as well as a pop of color.  Design inspiration was drawn from Wes Anderson, so It’s no wonder I’m oohing and ahhing.

WANTED -Shopbop via la la lovely

I’m curious.  When it comes to clothes do you change colors schemes when seasons change?  I’m beginning to notice that my style is somewhat skipping seasons.  It moves along and morphs from boots to sandals, from long heavy sweaters to swinging flowy dresses, from ripped up jeans to their shorter variety, and so on.  However, the colors I’m continually drawn to seem be on repeat each season.  I kind of dig it because it lets me crossover seaons items and mix and match.

Shopbop is having a major sale (25% off code below), so I’ve been setting sights on a few pieces I’m loving for spring and summer.  This is where and when I like to purchase a pair of sandals.  I’m especially loving mules and wedges, at the moment.  Here are a few of my faves.

And how about these accessories?  I said I’d NEVER wear a Fanny Pack, but here I am suggesting one to you.  I guess because I’m wanting one too.  Hey the 90’s called and they said Fanny Packs are cool again.

 

And, a few clothing stapes for summer.  Yes, I’ve included a sweater.  Because where I live we still pull out sweaters and long sleeves when the sunlight leaves for the day or when we are indoors under all that air conditioning.  Do you too?

 

What is on your wish list for spring and summer?

You can get 25% off your order at SHOPBOP by using code: SPRING25 when you checkout through April 9 at 11:59 p.m.

these wooden shutters as seen in an uncluttered home on Remodelista.   This home also happens to have one of those giant, outside looking, in windows I love so much.

pink skirts with pink sneakers for spring (via The You Way).  And, striped pants.  Yes, those too.

Would you agree?  I carry way more than I should and then try to cast my cares.

photos like this.  I love when style and imagination collide. Might have to print this out for my non-digital board.

la la loving pretty cake

pretty cake.  Because when cake is this pretty it’s almost sweeter to look at then eat.  Maybe?  This gorgeous photo is by Linda Lomelino who takes stunning photos of food.

I’ve longed loved this photo of what I thought was a photo of a flying circus tent or something.  Come to find out it is a whole photo series by Laurent Chéhére called Flying Houses.  I’m always taken with anything magical and surreal.  But, the fact that it is about houses, totally makes me swoon….la la love!  These are  are just a few of my favorites, but there are so many more stunning ones, here.

So the weekend is upon us, once again.  Fridays feel so full of anticipation.  I’d like to get my Mondays to feel that way, too.  Sometimes they do, but they are mixed with a large does of expectation, anticipation and a little anxiousness at the thought of will I get it all done?  I guess that is just a sign of still needing to work on taking one day at time.

But, for now I’m looking forward to this weekend…spending time with an out of town bestie.  A soul sister, really.

Beyond that, I’m thinking spring break and Easter.  Do you have any big plans for Easter?  Any lovely traditions?  I need to start making more holiday traditions.  I didn’t have a ton growing up, but the little things we seemed to repeat each year are things I find myself trying repeat with my kids now.

Speaking of Easter, I shared the easiest Easter eggs ever this week, if you are going to be dipping, dying or coloring.

Happy weekend, lovelies!
