Everything’s Bigger in Texas!

We landed yesterday morning at the airport after waking up at 4 a.m. for our flight and I literally became an amnesia patient… “Where are we?? What day is it??”  This has been a whirlwind, and while we are both exhausted, these parties have been magnificently energizing and inspiring for me.  Meeting so many of you and hearing about your lives really has lit a fire under my ass to re-commit to the blog in a big way once this is over.  Not that I’ve been uncommitted, but after almost 8 years of doing this the burnout is real (as you’ve seen lately with a lot of big time bloggers calling it quits).  But let me assure you, I’m not going anywhere. Especially after this experience!

I was excited not only to meet my Dallas readers, but also get to see Wisteria’s only store!  I order from them all the time for clients and myself- namely my new bedroom nightstands I adore- so to get to see ALL the goodies from them in person was awesome for me! What a gorgeous store!

First the outfit- since this was daytime in Texas I went a mix of fancy (the shoes), casual (the jeans and tank) and business (jacket and pearls). I look so damn tired and awkward here but whatevs.

A Quick Post From the Air!

We had a blast last night in Raleigh at Furbish Studio, but had to wake up at 4 a.m. to make out 6:30 a.m. flight to Dallas so we would be there in time for my 11 a.m.-2 p.m. signing at Wisteria (please come, y’all)- which I am currently on!  I am bleary eyed and hopped up on caffeine, and not in my most creative mindset- however, I couldn’t leave you hanging without a post.  So here are some colorful snaps from last night as well as my outfit, which I actually LOVED- this top is heaven- it’s long in the back to cover your bum and loose but not so loose it’s looks maternity. And check out that perfect leopard print. Also, my niece Kate who happens to be the cutest thing ever.

The Tour Continues: D.C. & Atlanta

Our D.C. stop was at the one and only Jonathan Adler in gorgeous Georgetown (seriously, so much house porn- I could totally live there- reminds me so much of Boston’s own Beacon Hill).

Was so thrilled to see my book in one of my favorite stores- atop one of my most loved dining tables and accessorized by the amazing new  Globo boxes I’m obsessed with!!! It was surreal for sure (like this whole experience has been).
