Artist: Cate Parr


I was blog surfing the other night and came across the delightful blog Chic 'n Cheap Living which is now saved in my frequent reads tab!  The artwork in her header is what first struck me, it is an amazing watercolor piece and as I read her recent postings, I learned she is having a giveaway to readers from the artist!  Check it out here.  

The artist, is Cate Parr who has a shop on Etsy of her watercolor art.  A visit to her store had me so captivated and in awe of the beautiful work she does, I am having a hard time deciding which work I love the most. I have been trying to keep my eye out for new art for the home and this is absolutely on my must buy list.  Below are a few of my favorites, you absolutely must check out her shop Silver Ridge Studio on Etsy.

Closet Paralysis



It seems recently that every time I walk into my closet I can't find anything to wear.  I certainly don't have a lack of clothing, but when the seasons change I'm left standing there, staring with a blank expression.  What exactly DID I wear last Spring, Summer, Winter?  Honestly, my closet needs an intense overhaul because I know I wore something, but I can't seem to figure out what it was!  I know every girl has this problem, but why do we?  How can we possibly stand in a closet surrounded by rows  and piles of clothes and still exclaim I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!?

p.s. isn't Lucy so cute hanging out in my closet?  She is such a delight!  And yes, that is a hulla hoop in the back by the window.

Carefree Casual


I'm so happy to not have to bundle up anymore for casual weekends. I live in a very old house with very thick walls and high ceilings. In the winter that equals weekend days spent bundled up in layers.  For spring and summer I am thrilled to shed the layers and opt for a more simple casual chic.  I love the oversized tee trend!  They are perfect for throwing over a pair of leggings or cute shorts and the flowing proportions happily disguise the extra cookies that may have landed on your bum!

A Multi-Trend?

{ via Tommy Ton for Style }

SPOTTED:  At Sydney Fashion Week!  What do you think of this new multi-colored nail trend?  I have started to see this around a lot lately.  Mostly I have seen it on garishly long fake nails; but even on short, more classy nails I'm not sure what I think of this.  Thoughts?  Is it a trend you are going to try this summer?  Maybe if I mysteriously found myself at a music festival one random weekend but certainly not for the everyday...

Vintage Spree





Just a few current favorites from my favorite online vintage boutique Spanish Moss Vintage.  Their constantly updated collection never ceases to blow my mind.  Their super cool vintage concert tees always seem to be the first to sell!

A Colorful Spring



It finally seems to be consistently warm here in Baltimore, which means that it is now officially Spring!  This also means I can no longer wear my favorite black (or close to black) polishes on my toes and fingers.  What is a girl to do?  I'm always hesitant to wear a color (besides black) on my fingers because when I do, I always end up wearing outfits that don't go well with the color.  I love red on nails, but sometimes that doesn't match everything either.  Decisions, DECISIONS!  Check out some of Essie's Spring brights below:


I'm going to go ahead and make a rule that these are for toes only.  I haven't met a girl yet who can pull off canary yellow on her fingers.  Wish me luck on finding the perfect Spring color!

Glam


Arguably the best outfit Anne Hathaway wore at the Oscars was the tux.  It was so unexpected in a sea of glamorous gowns and was soon the most talked about outfit of the night.  Anja Rubik brings the glammed up suit to new levels in the May issue of Vogue Paris.  Personally, I am a cocktail dress girl, but I will admit that a sleek black cigarette pant paired with sky high heels is uber sexy.

Meet Lucy


A few weeks back I said I had a big announcement; meet LUCY my new Persian kitty!  She is such a sweetheart and love muffin.  Seriously, I cannot get over how cute this little thing is!  Hopefully I won't turn into one of those obsessive cat ladies and I promise not to make this blog all about Lucy - but still, isn't she just darling??

Tablescaping to The MAX


On Monday I took off work to do a little creative therapy on myself.  I had the pleasure to help my dear friend Stephanie with her table setup for the NACE Uncorked event.  The theme was "A Night of Mystery" and Stephanie's table theme was "The Pink Panther."  The table details came together beautifully and since I had flower duty, I learned a little bit about flower arranging.  Just getting a little practice before I design the tablescape for The Bestie's wedding in August!
