Fashion Friday: Shoemint Giveaway!

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Who doesn’t want a new pair of shoes? C’mon! I never was a shoe girl…until recently.  All of the sudden I find myself coveting all sorts of kicks- those I can’t even fathom affording and those I can buy in bulk.  But most of my shoes fall in the in between, which is why I’m psyched to have discovered Shoemint.  Each pair is $79.98 (when not on sale, which a lot are right now) and exclusive to the site. And today I get to give away a pair to THREE lucky readers- any pair you wish! Just sign up for Shoemint and leave a comment with the pair you want and I’ll pick three winners next week!

(I have these wedge booties below and they are awesome.)

Here’s a little outfit base don a cool pair of Shoemint boots I’m loving- and this fur trimmed style anorak is the jacket on EVERY girl in Manhattan, I swear.

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Navy and mint green are two of my favorite colors right now….so why not combine them, in a room or on yourself?

God, that was cheesy. Anyways, the re-brand of Claridge’s Hotel in London is one of the best collective design work I’ve seen in a while.  The mint and black color scheme are so chic yet so fun you can’t help but smile.  Not to mention this shade of mint is like, my favorite thing ever right now.  I saw a pair of shorts at J.Crew yesterday in this color and would have snapped them up had they not looked like complete ass on me.

And check out the new David Lindley designed bathrooms in the new color scheme! (Thanks Melanie for the heads up on that one!)

It reminds me of this- my favorite ice cream flavor ever.

Which in turn reminds me of all this:

I need more mint in my life.

I am currently loving light mint/seafoam green.  Always a lovely shade in the summer when you have a little tan, pairing it with coral or navy can make it look super modern.  Just take a look at these inspirational images and make a plan to incorporate it into your wardrobe!

Some fabulous finds in this delightful color:

Let’s Look At: The Windsor Chair

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Windsor chairs are a historic style (first made in the 1700′s) that still are popular today.  But not just in country style homes, there are so many modern interpretations not only from current furniture makers but also from the 50′s and 60′s. These chairs offer clean lines and work with a variety of dining tables and decor.  Let’s take a look at some room utilizing this long-standing style:

Modern meets traditional:

I love this traditional country room because it has such simplicity that it sneaks into modern territory:

Light grey painted chairs are subtle and classic:

I love these two rooms- one employing more classic chairs within a modern room and another (right) with more modern lines all around.

I love the spindles of these modern Windsor chairs with a sleek Parson’s table and patterned rug.
