Black and White Celebrity Photos

Today William Stafford Gallery photos are featured today on One Kings Lane.  I just love the idea of having these in a bedroom, dressing room, or any TV or family room.

SWW: Fall J. Crew

Today I am joining Daphne and her friend Kristy for Semi Wordless Wednesday.


In middle school I would eagerly await my brand new J. Crew catalogue, carefully folding down the corners on the pages that held the items that would eventually end up on my birthday or Christmas wish lists.  Fast forward through going through a dreaded Abercrombie phase, becoming obsessed with the Crew again and working at a store for a few years, then trying to "diversify" my wardrobe, and now being reeled back in by gorgeous catalogue shoots.

Yesterday my new fall catalogue arrived--which is always my favorite J. Crew season.  Let's join along and add some of these to our wishlists!

I love the Perfect Shirts, and the medium gingham would be perfect to ease into cooler weather.

I actually have an old leopard print one that I adore.  This one would look great with a colorful pencil skirt!

Or you could go the leopard sweater look.

Need this for apple picking!

With this gorgeous gorgeous sweater.  (I think you could keep this forever, and it reminds me of the J. Crew of the 90s.)

I wear cropped pants most of the time when I wear pants.  The summer cafe capri has been a favorite of mine for years.  This autumn update in wool would work in many offices.

I also have a few pairs of minnies that I love.

I can never turn down lace. . . 

A fun pencil skirt in a great color.  (I have an orange linen pencil skirt that gets a lot of wear.)

Either would be perfect under a hacking jacket.  (This longer length flatters everyone and the purple is calling my name!)

Or you could bring a velvet blazer for after work drinks or date night.

Tweed pumps.  Enough said.

And this may be the year I finally add a Barbour to the closet.

Who doesn't need a gorgey sequin dress?

Are you a J. Crew fan?  What are your favorite looks for fall?

Little White Dress Friday's Fancies

As is the case for most of the country, we are definitely in a heat wave.  This little white dress with some serious gold accents (and of course, that Hermes belt!) would be perfect for wherever the night takes you.

I'm Back (ish)

So sorry to leave everyone hanging for much longer than I expected!  My summer has been much busier than anticipated.  I am teaching a class at the school where I got my grad degree and today I found out I got another job.  (Which is so exciting--I first applied back in May for this position.)  It's been a lot of balancing and a lot of hard work over the past few weeks.  Throughout many long days, I love looking at inspiring quotes to keep me motivated.

And of course, some words of wisdom via Queen B.

How has your summer been?  Any big changes on the horizon for you?  Where do you go for inspiration?
