happy weekend!


The past few days seemed to drag after the 3-day weekend… so I’m thrilled that it’s Friday! This weekend we’re off to Asheville for the wedding of these two lovebirds. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend… see you Monday!

I know summer doesn’t officially start for a few weeks, but to me Memorial Day has always been the kickoff of the summer season. Which means… swimsuit weather! Here are a few I wouldn’t mind donning for a day at the beach/lake/pool:

{Clockwise: Stella by Salt Swimwear; Retro Bustier by Pistol Panties; A.P.C. Madras bikini; Clio ruffled maillot, Hayden-Harnett; Polka-dot bikini + shorts, Toast}

the felice brothers


Today I’m listening to folk/country rock group The Felice Brothers. Their sound is a mix between Bob Dylan and The Band, and I dig it. This song is my current fave.

Thanks, husband! You always find the best indie music. :)

in the aeroplane over the sea…


Last week I shared a few “corners of our home” and had a few inquiries about the artwork in the photo above, which I’ve been meaning to share for a while… I had torn out a page from the October 2007 issue of InStyle for a picture of Molly Sims’ living room because I loved the artwork hanging over her couch  (“Homage to Music” by Matthew Heller). As a Christmas gift to my husband, I attempted to replicate the piece with the lyrics to one of our favorite songs – Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”. This was the result!
