BITS & PIECES

Jewels by JAR | The Pursuit of Style

I wasn’t planning on posting today, but after waking up early from the best night’s sleep I’ve had in awhile (I give full credit to The Marlton, but more on that later this week!) I thought I’d share some illicitly snapped photos from the Jewels by JAR exhibit at The Met.

Featuring more than 400 pieces by Paris based jewelry designer Joel A. Rosenthal, the exhibit is a must see if you’re in the New York area–it ends March 9 so get there soon!  The fanciful zebra brooch at the top was by far my favorite. Can you even imagine wearing it? I’m pretty sure I’d be smiling all day.

P.S follow along on Instagram for more snaps from NY.

WEEKEND READING

Ralph Lauren | Jamie Beck

With a snowstorm, a client presentation (can’t wait to share–really excited about this one!), Valentine’s Day, and scrambling around with lots of last minute errands before catching my 5:00am train to NYC this morning, this week has been nothing short of a whirlwind. To be honest though, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m looking forward to kicking off the week ahead by spending some quality time with my mom and sister, trying on lots and lots of beautiful white dresses, and hopefully saying yes to one of them! Follow along on Instagram for more of our NYC shenanigans.

FLAT OUT

D'Orsay Flats | The Pursuit of StyleI was flat out shocked when I discovered these d’orsay flats at Old Navy for less than $25.00! I live in flats and wear them hard so it’s nice to find a cheap but chic pair that I won’t be crushed when I inevitably need to toss them at the end of the season.

They come in five colors (including navy not shown above) and with such a friendly price tag you won’t have to agonize too hard over which to choose. I’m thinking tan and sand for Spring–even though it seems years away with this storm!

DOORS OF DC

Doors of DC | The Pursuit of Style

Georgetown

Doors of DC took a necessary hiatus these past few months in the spirit of keeping all of my fingers frost bite free, but I happened to be in Georgetown this weekend, and couldn’t possibly walk by my favorite doorknocker without snapping a quick photo for you.

I love anything Egyptian revival, so the owners of this charming navy blue door with its brass King Tut knocker are kindred spirits for sure. I can’t help but be curious about the story behind it.
