This week’s In Pursuit mixes neon brights with classic neutrals. For a formal event this spring, I’m torn between a Grecian inspired Tibi dress fancied up with statement jewels or a bold pair of B Brian Atwood heels paired with a classic LBD. I’m adding a few smaller accessories to my spring essentials list: a new pair of Jack Rogers which I re-invest in every year, a striped scarf (Gap is really stepping it up!), the perfect shade of turquoise polish and a notebook and pen to write down some new life goals. The big ticket item which I’m filing away as a potential birthday wish list item are these timeless Tiffany knot earrings. I’m fairly certain I’d wear them everyday!
A few weeks ago I included a star chart in an In Pursuit post that I haven’t been able to get out of my head. I’ve become obsessed with the idea of incorporating one of these vintage charts into my own decor. I love that they’re a little bit masculine and I’ve always been interested in the constellations and the mythology behind them.
These photos from New York City based interior designer, Thomas O’Brien’s blog, are only fueling the fire. Thomas collects celestial maps and lunar prints and this chart has moved with him from apartment to apartment over time. The vignette in the third photo stops me in my tracks every time! You really must read his blog post and check out his other astrological art.
What do you think, are you a fan?
Spring is filled with occasions for setting a beautiful table; bridal showers abound and of course there are Easter and Mother’s Day brunches to plan. In my opinion, few people set a more beautiful table than Tory Burch. Her bright palettes and feminine details are the perfect inspiration for spring entertaining. Taking a cue from Tory, I’ve gathered a few pieces that I would be happy to use for my own springtime soiree.
P.S all photos are from Tory Burch’s pinterest. Do you follow? I’m obsessed!
Lately I’ve been filling up our Netflix queue with the classics. Our most recent arrival was Cleopatra starring the one and only Elizabeth Taylor. Aside from being a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon, I was completely mesmerized by the beautiful costumes and jewelry (would you expect anything less from her?!) In honor of the late-great Ms. Taylor, I’ve put together a round up of jewels befitting an Egyptian queen.
Happy first day of spring! I’ve added quite a few items to my wish list as we prepare for warmer days ahead. For me: Virginia Johnson’s lobster print tote for the Maine getaway we’re planning this summer; a statement ring in the most gorgeous shade of jade; flats to satisfy my craving for all things neon. For my home: One of my favorite fabrics of all time, Fig Leaf, by Peter Dunham; the perfect shade for my vintage tortoise glass lamps; a moroccan inspired rug for the living room; anything and everything Roberta Roller Rabbitt, especially this kurta cover up.
