Free People

Free People has some gorgeous pieces out for Spring. Even though they style their looks for teens and young-twenties, I don't think you have to rule out wearing certain things as long as YOU style them a little more conservatively. Click on the links below each outfit for info.
This black eyelet dress would be so pretty with little flat sandals, a straw bag, and not much else! You could also layer it over skinny jeans.

Straw bag

This tulle maxi-skirt is sooooo pretty! I would wear it with a simple long tank top or t-shirt and ballet flats. I love it with this long tank below:

Ballet Flats

Loving these lace pants! I love the idea of the denim shirt but I'd keep it simpler with just a striking long pendant and great boots.

By now you're noticing a big trend of lace and eyelet! This tank is perfect! You could put it over a maxi skirt or wide-legged pants: killer!

Two trends here: eyelet and the wide leg. I'd do these with a fitted t-shirt and sandals, or over a bathing suit at the beach.

Tan Wedge Sandals

These lace pants are a bit edgier. I'd try something like this silk top from J. Crew Collection instead of Free People's tank, and a pair of amazing nude sandals.

Bringing home the trophy

I'm obsessing over this set of antler trophies from Tracy Porter. $175.

Stairway to...well, just the laundry room, really.

We just had chocolate-brown hardwood laid in the upstairs hall and also took the carpet off our back stairs and had the treads stained to match the hall. I love it so far, and this week of snow days allowed me to get all of the risers primed. Now I can't decide what to do with them! I was going to stick with white, but it's just a little too plain now that I've got the white primer on. I love black, but this wood is so dark it doesn't provide enough contrast. I'd love your input if you would be kind enough to become a Google follower and leave a comment.  Should I go with the wall color, which is Benjamin Moore's Fresh Olive? Or stick with white but add some type of detail?

Tray of the Day

Asian lacquer tray at Gilt: $79. Would be knockout on a coffee table or a bar.

Ya gotta make these, right now!

This is the second time I have made these cookies, and I am 100% positive that they are the best that I have ever made OR eaten! It's another great recipe from Molly at Orangette. I got her book for Christmas and, while these aren't in it, there are lots of other great recipes to make your mouth water, plus some touching narratives. I highly recommend it! But I recommend these cookies even more: I'm telling you!

I love this image of Sean Connery in the LV campaign. He is still soooo good looking! Very classy, dude.
