darker on the inside

The weather here in Philadelphia has been bizarre - hot, cold, dry, wet - we've seen it all recently. Makes for interesting closet choices. I'm back in school full time so I have been bogged down with work. I apologize for letting like 10 days go by without a post. I promise to try harder to make time for my blog. xx

gillian tennant

I recently discovered this beautiful Australian label - Gillian Tennant - on one of my favorite blogs, allure-allure. Everything is so soft and airy, almost ballerina-like.

elegance at home

What a beautiful mix of American and European, shabby and chic, classic and romantic. Quintessential Ralph Lauren.

as good luck would have it


My favorites from Diane Von Furstenberg S/S 2011

This is her first collaboration with Yvan Mispelaere, and a successful one for sure. In typical dfv style, there were lots of bold prints throughout the collection (not shown here). They were great as well, but I tend to gravitate toward the less graphic, more simple silhouettes, like those above. Beautiful. I'm particularly loving the rust and blue color combo in photo two.

soaked in bleach

Just when I thought I've discovered all the fashionable bloggers out there, along comes Victoria Tornegren. I highly recommend checking out her blog. You will not be disappointed. She tends to dress in blacks, whites, grays, and beiges (which is right up my alley). And her apartment - stark white - is so lovely and a perfect background to her bronzed skin and blonde hair.
