Suitcase: A Hawaiian Holiday.

December 16, 2011

I can’t believe how quickly the Holidays have arrived. I’m even a little ashamed to admit that I’ve skipped everything festive this season.  It’s been a rather chaotic Autumn and to be frank, I’m just grateful to escape to Paradise come Boxing Day! The thought of a beach has me splurging on a few Springlike additions – including some sporty items. The bf and I have planned an active few weeks, though lazy afternoons reading sound wonderful too. What are your holiday plans? x

J. Crew Spring 2011.

February 10, 2011

Have you peeked at J. Crew’s Spring 2011 lookbook yet? I’m loving the colourful shorts and pastel tops. I may just need to squeeze in some shopping time when I visit Washington for work next month!

Pretty Spring Lookbook.

I’m swooning over Steven Alan‘s Spring 2011 collection. Warm weather, bicycles, picnics in the park… Only forty-seven more days until Spring!

Forecast: Rain.

I’ve just discovered my neighborhood pub, the Havelock Tavern! A close friend stressed the importance of finding a local, as the Brits call it. Fortunately, mine is right down the street and features an excellent menu and drink selection. I’ve got every intention of spending a big part of this weekend curled up in a booth reading a book! My colleague Abbie has kindly lent me Wolf Hall, a lengthy account of Thomas Cromwell’s rise and fall (I’m a sucker for anything from the Tudor dynasty!) Now if only I could be wearing that pair of boots below…

Oh yes, Anthropologie.

August 12, 2010

I took a different route home this evening. Working in Soho means having to walk through Oxford Street, or worse, Carnaby Street! In an attempt to curb my spending I altered my path to Regent Street… And there it was, the gorgeous 3-storey Anthropologie. I couldn’t help but drool over the Fall collection: rich neutrals, soft fabrics, and such pretty details.

I’m crossing my fingers for an early Spring- And for a warm-ish weekend away very soon! I’ve always loved Washington D.C., the history, the museums, the delicious restaurants… I’ve never been during the Spring season, but somehow I think it might be the prettiest time to visit D.C.!

I know it’s only January, but I’m so incredibly excited for Spring already! Canadian designer Dace Moore has revealed her Spring 2010 line, and it’s beautiful.
