Wishing for a Snow Day
I awoke to a nice layer of snow covering everything in sight today which made it tempting to call in sick (cough cough). If I were blessed with a snow day I would love to lounge around with these cozy things!

Soft Spot for: Sarah Rhoads Photographers
There are certain people and places that have a magnetism to them. The Bermuda Triangle, pinkberry, the island on LOST and Sarah Rhoads Photographers. Sarah and Chris Rhoads are a husband and wife team of photographers based in Seattle, WA. They take beautifully artistic photographs that have the ability to transport you to another time and place – which has made me want to pack it up and move to the northwest on more than one occasion! I have known of the pair since college and have always admired their style – they just ooze originality. Here are a few of my favorite images from their blog. Happy Monday!

Mad About Mad Men
Mad Men is one of my favorite shows – partly for the fashion and interiors full of mid-century modern pieces, and partly for Dawn and Betty’s relationship. I can’t wait to see how next season kicks off – will she go through with the divorce? In the meantime I’m filling the void with Dyna Moe’s illustrations representing each episode.
Inspired By: Kristen Stewart
I’ll admit it. I. Love. Twilight. The movies aren’t exactly Oscar worthy, but they are entertaining, stylish, and well – they have him. Someone else who seems to have him is Hollywood’s anti-it girl, Kristen Stewart. Love her or hate her, the girl has some serious style. Skinny jeans, leather, 80’s rocker tees, plaid, chucks and the color red have never been so hot! If she were a room, we think she’d look like this:
Starburst Mirror : crate and barrel
Layered Pattern and Fur Rugs : west elm
Sofa, Lamp, Coffee Table : DWR
Red Leather Accent Chair : DWR
Vintage Rocker Tees (to make into throw pillows) : Etsy
I love the idea of dressing extra feminine for love day, whether it is spent with the friends or your valentine. Throw on a military jacket or a cozy sweater and some scuffed up boots to balance the sweetness of these frocks.
