Happy {Haunting} Weekend

The end of another month is near.

purdy weekend

This time of year always goes too quickly for my liking. There’s really not much that’s more fun that cool sunny days, crunching leaves and good times spent with friends and family.

That’s why we’re definitely going to make the most of it this weekend. We’ve got quite the agenda: from farmers markets to strolling through town with pumpkin lattes in hand, brunches with friends and maybe even a trip out to wine country I’m looking forward to soaking in everything the Bay Area has to offer.

Here are few more fun things I spotted this week:
~ I’d like to bake this
~ I’d like to wear this
~ I’d like to win this
~ I want to redecorate my office with these
~ And I want to give huge love to Apartment 34’s latest sponsors Moxii and Poshlocket. Between the two of them your house and your closet will be all set! {BTW, we’re now accepting holiday sponsors. Click here to sign up before spaces are gone!}

One thing I won’t be doing this weekend is dressing up for Halloween. Sadly, it just snuck up too quickly on me this year. What about you luvies? Do you love Halloween? I’d love to know what you’re going to be!

And while we took a week off, I’m excited to bring back another edition of Noteoworthy Newbies. Here’s to spreading the love.

Noteworthy Newbies 6.0
~ Moves Lightly
~ Fash n chips
~ Parker Etc
~ LA in the Bay

Till Monday,

Down for the Count

Well, it’s official. The first cold of the season has arrived and it has hit me hard.

The timing couldn’t be worse. I have quite the project in the works and had planned to share it with you today, but it’ll have to wait until my head clears. But I promise it’ll be well worth it!
So sorry luvies but I should be back soon,

p.s. if you’d like a little spoiler, check out my take on decor basics over at Interior Connector!

Wedding Wednesday {Fashion Forward Bridesmaid Dresses}

The days of the powder puff bridesmaid dress are a thing of the past. Thank goodness.

Now designers are turning out looks that are high on style. I’m particularly loving the Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 bridesmaid collection.

The hand painted fabrics in the first three options remind me of my favorite Jil Sander collection and the full length floral gown? It is beautifully long on glamour. I can just imagine it against a stunning outdoor setting {like this!} on a warm Saturday evening.
Finally, bridesmaid dress options you’ll actually want an excuse to wear again!
