I always see street style fashion that makes me drool but then I think “I’d have to be pretty drunk to leave the house like that”. I’m not exactly a statement, artistic dresser- but I do like to take cues from the bolder, cooler girls and traslate it into something I feel more comfortable running errands in.
I mean, I LOVE this picture. The navy, the pink… it’s all so good. But I don;t think I’d feel like “me” wearing this exact outfit.
So here is a more “everyday” outfit using it as inspiration- trading the sheer skirt for cute cropped pants!

While I was in Asheville, NC I got a tip from my brother about Antique Tobacco Barn a GIANT warehouse full of goodies. I would need a whole day to really go through this place, but in my quick walk through I spotted some great finds (at great prices too!)
I would have loved to use this old US map in a kid’s room- as well as a pair of these leather and brass nailhead twin headboards!!!! So awesome for a little boys room!
These marble feet are SO Kelly Wearstler. I wish I could have shipped them home for under a fortune. And this chair was like $100 and in amazing shape.
Some incredible old doors!
How amazing would this be refinished as a kitchen island??
These brass and wood chairs slayed me. SLAYED me. And this spool bed would be so awesome redone in high gloss black paint!
A pair of awesome chairs!
A great set of metal chairs for a country kitchen and a pair of campaign secretaries that would have been amazing redone in a high gloss color. Or black. I like painting everything black. :)
I love blue and white china and loved this set of plates when I saw them from afar- upon closer inspection I got a good laugh!
Anne should snap these up.

I completely LOVED the offices of fashion retailer Moda Operandi featured in this month’s Architectural Digest. The pink walls, the mix of modern, traditional, new and vintage I think this space is happy, feminine and yet polished. But what else would expect from Lauren Santo Domingo?
The neon sign is SUCH a fun touch.
A great example of layering well.
I die over the dressing room- it’s like being transported to a Paris atelier!
Mixing patterns is tricky, and this is a bold example of it, but somehow it works!
Want this style for your own office or living room? Here are some items to get it!
