chic women wear scarves

I was on the Hermés website yesterday afternoon (dreaming, of course) and stumbled across "Playtime With Your Scarf", their online picture booklet that explains how to tie your scarf in a multitude of ways. I've always been fascinated by women who wear scarves to cover their hair-- I think it looks so glamourous! I've never tried it before, but I think it's going to be my new spring look. Now I need to start hunting for some vintage scarves

D.V. by Diana Vreeland 

I picked up D.V. by Diana Vreeland yesterday afternoon from my library. I am embarrassed to say that I do not know much about the legendary Ms. Vreeland, so I am very much looking forward to reading this book! I have a feeling that once I start reading, I am going to become obsessed and need to read every book that was ever published by or on the subject of this woman. But, enough about me! Dear readers, what books are you reading right now?

Katie Armour Home

My sweet friend Kate from theNEOtraditionalist.com just opened up a shop on etsy called Katie Armour Home-- you must check it out! Kate has amazing taste and has spent weeks combing through antiques for her shop (she's found some great pieces!).  They're going fast, so take a peek before it's too late!

svenska lägenhet (swedish apartment)


I came across these photos of a lovely Swedish flat over the weekend and now I have total design envy. I love the subtle pops of color against all of the white, black and neutral tones of this apartment, like the yellow frame above the couch and the pink tulips on the table. White makes for such a moveable decor. If you have time to overcome the language barrier, try to navigate this website to view some of the other pristine white apartments the website has profiled. So chic!
