Today I love…

I’ve been feeling really inspired by fashion lately, so I thought I’d gather a few of my recent favorites into one post.  Perhaps it’s because the weather is getting warmer (even if somewhat erratically), but I find myself wanting to live in pretty dresses and tops with simple, but gorgeous patterns:

I looove this bag – I want to pack it up with a good book or two and run away to the beach for a weekend…

So what’s inspiring you this week?  I’d love to hear from you – let me know in the comments if there’s anything you’re totally loving this week!

Spring Styling from J. Crew

I am completely smitten with the Spring collection from J.Crew:

Fabulous details? Check.  Fun patterns? Check.  Delicate chiffon trim? Check.  Impeccable styling? Check and check.  And this wedding dress… if I was getting married all over again it would be at the top of my list:

Sigh… and swoon.

Today I love…

It's been a cold and rainy week here in DC – not exactly pleasant weather – but I'm crossing my fingers that the weather will improve for the weekend.  In the meantime, I've been doing a bit of daydreaming, and here are a few of the things that have been inspiring me this week:

This photo makes me want to take a day off from work and just curl up on a comfy chair with a book and a cup of tea. {via Apartment Therapy}

Cardamom and saffron ice cream.  I'm dying to try this recipe out this weekend – I think it would taste amazing with a little bit of honey drizzled on top.  {via Tartelette}

This sneak peek into the home of Tara from Ink + Wit – located in the same town where my husband grew up in upstate New York.  I love Tara's dining area, and I am completely lusting after her gorgeous kitchen. {via decor8}

Gorgeous new dresses by Sarah Seven.  I am in love with these colors. {via sarahseven}

Today I love…

I love a pop (or two) of bright color, but lately I've found myself drawn to organic forms in white and neutrals – particularly ceramics and bright, light-filled interiors…
