I thought I'd start today's post off with some serious cuteness.  These Teddy leggings from Mini Rodini are the cat's pajamas and any baby boy would look exceptionally adorable in them.

I just love this in its entirety.  I love Julia Child, I love to eat and I love the design.  Via

I can't get over how dreamy this porch is.  I bet it's nestled perfectly in the mountains somewhere and I bet this scene is straight out of fall when the rest of us are dreaming of crisp weather that calls for plaid blankets and fires.  Needless to say, I want to go to there.  Via

Lately, I've had a bit of an obsession with white, flowy blouses with lace or embroidered details.  And I saw this on Pinterest and really loved it, although I'm not fond of her pairing with army-print jeans.  It just seems so lovely and feminine in just the right ways.  Shirt via (now sold out), photo via

Considering it's the dead of winter and considering we have yet to figure out a good solution for our shoes in the entryway, I think this idea is brilliant.  We have an ugly tray for collecting wet boots, but this just takes it to a different level.  Not only does it look better but it functions better.  Genius!  Via

How are you all doing? Excited that Friday is tomorrow?!  Who am I kidding, of course you are!  I do hope your weeks have been going well.  Ours has been strange here in Louisville - 70 degrees one day, tornado warnings at 4 a.m. and it's freezing cold with snow on the ground today.  Trying my best to remain healthy and happy.  Happy Thursday, y'all!

Friday's Fancies + Have a Warm Weekend!


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Happy Friday! Woo! What have you got planned for the glorious weekend ahead?  I'm pretty sure we have nothing solid planned for the weekend, which is most definitely fine by me.  Staying snuggled up and warm sounds like the perfect recipe for a perfect weekend.

This week's Friday's Fancies theme guessed + white.  I love this combo, as you might have been able to guess from this post.  If you look in my closet (and husband's, too) you would be able to find so much black + white stripes and pairings, it's not even funny.  I love how you can throw in a splash of any color for some fun and it just works so well.  And one of these days, I will own that Marc Jacobs handbag that I've been eyeing for like 7 years now.  Some day.

Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope it's glorious.  Stay warm!

I think starting any blog post with a supremely handsome photo of Paul Rudd (my #1 celebrity crush, go KU!) and Adam Scott.  You're welcome :)  Via

Considering it's January and 22 degrees outside, I figured we could all use a little brightness in our lives.  Wouldn't this striped frock be a fantastic vacation dress?  Bonus, it's only $32! Via SheInside

I have to admit, I'm all about all things food these days.  This banana cream pie looks absolutely divine and I'm pretty sure I need to make it.  Yes, yes I do.  Via

How sweet is this photo? And that wallpaper? And that mushroom? Ah, my heart, it melts! Via

How gorgeous is this field?! Located in Ibaraki, Japan - someone should recreate this a little closer to home so I can go and most definitely get lost in its glory.  Via

Friday's Fancies + Have a Terrific Weekend!

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm particularly pumped that the weekend is here, not for any reason in specific but just the fact that I am ready for it.  It's been a long week and my energy levels have depleted.  Nothing but a home cooked meal is on the agenda for tonight and tomorrow is likely to bring a basement project to life that will help us clear out some unnecessary furniture from the nursery.  Luckily for said project, all I have to do is help hold some boards together for nailing.  Hopefully.  Other than that, I plan to watch some college basketball, celebrate the first birthday of a special little lady and definitely, most definitely, do a lot of resting.

For this week's Friday's Fancies, I've put together a dreamy ensemble that I wish I could sport.  I can round up a similar version I suppose but it just won't be the same.  In due time, right?!  

What are you up to this weekend? Something wonderful, I hope!  Whatever it is you do, I hope you have a terrific time.

You know what's both incredibly exciting and incredibly terrifying about these earrings? You're probably thinking, what is terrifying about earrings?!  Well, they're part of the spring 2013 collection from Stella & Dot.  Not terrifying, you say?  Well, imagine if you were due to give birth in spring 2013! Kind of terrifying now, right?!  I can' believe I'm seeing those words pop up everywhere.  Spring 2013.  Ah!

And if only it was warm enough outside to slip these babies on my feet.  Because I need shoes that are easy to slip on my feet.  News flash.  It's hard to bend over with a basketball in your belly, folks.  I'm thinking I need to order these Madewell sandals as my summer staple.

Why is it that when you need something and you settle on that something being something from Target that you like you but you don't love, and it's not really the best option but you go for it because you need it, and then you end up finding the perfect solution too little too late? That's what happened here.  We needed a mat for our wet shoes, we bought a mat from Target that we're all like, "eh" about, and it only kind of stays in place, and now here it is, the mat I've been yearning for.  You like my run-on sentences?  Via

Mmm, perfect-looking breakfast sandwich....mmmm.  I'm hungry.  All the time.  And this looks divine. And yeah, it has bacon on it and yeah, I've been eating occasional meat since with child.  Sue me!  Via

With Valentine's Day approaching, wouldn't this ring dish be a lovely gift to receive? Or better yet, a perfect ring bearer "pillow" for a rustic wedding.  We used a piece of carved wood with our initials in it and the rings tied on with satin ribbon.  It was lovely.  And so is this.  Via

How are you, lovelies?  I hope your weeks are going well.  I"m so thrilled to have an easy day today...the early half of the week was rather rough!  Hang in there, everyone, tomorrow is Friday!

It's a Black & White Issue

Hey, guys! It's been awhile since I've posted anything of these sorts, and I must admit, I sort of missed it.  Sort of.  It's time consuming and my eyelids are heavy and sandpapery and my butt is numb and...well, you get the picture.  But there's so much black and white loveliness to yearn for!  

How can you not love black & white?

I'm really loving the looks of this industrial kitchen and think it would be quite fun to drink coffee and eat pastries, followed by some casual knitting at this lovely table.  Via

How rad is this elephant cupboard?!  I've never seen anything like it! I imagine such creativity is sparked through this guy.  Via

Nothing much to say about this one, just finding it beautiful today.  Subtitled, "safety not guaranteed."  Via

This girl really rocks this outfit, don't you think? I don't know if I could pull it off, but she seems to rather effortlessly.  Via

Last, I'll leave you with this lip-smacking image of french macarons.  I've craved these throughout my pregnancy but have not indulged.  I.  Need.  One.  Now.  Via

Hope you're having lovely weeks.  It's a rainy day here, likely the start of a week of rainy days.  I don't mind one bit (at least for now).  Happy Thursday, loves!

Friday's Fancies + Happy New Year!

New Years

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

Happy New Year, bloggie friends!  It's hard to believe 2013 is here and well underway but I am very much looking forward to it.  Since the start of the year, we've had some good and relaxing times that I think will reflect our year to come.  The word "low key" rings true to our lifestyle and even after baby comes, I imagine we'll maintain that phrase, even with a wailing newborn in the background.  

Today's Friday's Fancies is an ode to the new year and an ode to my outlook of the year ahead.  Pregnancy may keep me in yoga pants and oversized sweaters but I've still found ways to reflect my personal style and stay true to myself.  I might have to change my favorite purse out for a stylish backpack/diaper bag, and I might have to switch out cute strappy sandals for easy slip-ons, but there are ways of doing so that keep me happy.  Plus, if I could live in soft cashmere, I think I'd be all set.  If only.

What are you up to this weekend?  Tonight we'll be hanging out with some fave people and tomorrow we're adventuring to Cincinnati to spend the afternoon day at Ikea.  I haven't been to Ikea in a hot minute so I'm both anxiously awaiting it and dreading the trip at the same time.  Hopefully we'll score some good nursery finds and load up on picture frames to fill the house without any spats or meltdowns :)

Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope you enjoy yourselves!  Oh, and last but not least ::
