Pretty in prints

I finally made it to Target last week. Aside from being completely out of paper towels and other necessities, I was dying to see the Liberty collections. I was not disappointed by the girls apparel (see small ruffled dress above) and women's accessories like scarves, bucket hats, umbrellas and totes. In the women's apparel dept, the cotton print pj's were charming, but the synthetic floral dresses did not have the same appeal.

Glam master bath

This bathroom makes me swoon. Gorgeous tub, huge dramatic windows, relaxing green walls, and a heated floor.

I love the ruffle "theme" to this table. The table skirt, serving dishes, plates and even the flowers all have a sweet ruffled edge.

Funny bunnies

I started on Easter crafts this weekend using some scalloped cards, round stickers and leftover scraps of decorative paper.

Rustic spring

Snippet and Ink has a gorgeous inspiration board up today of rustic white wedding elements with spring details like branches with blooms and nests with eggs. Besides the gorgeous bouquet, I especially like the image of the table all dressed up with tall elegant candles in the barn with a horse peeking out of his stall.

And the winner is...

Let's face it, we know what the real competition is at the Oscars. My pick for winner this year was Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab Haute Couture. Love the soft print and the pretty gathered pieces around the bust.

Other favorites:

Helen Mirren, looking amazing in subtly sparkly Badgley Mishka.

Cameron Diaz in glam Oscar de la Renta.

Anna Kendrick in floaty pastel Elie Saab.

Chalet chic

Calling all snowbunnies! D&G's winter olympics influenced Milan show was full of reindeer sweaters, furry boots, sparkly goggles and cosy hand knit cardigans. I like the soft, sheer details in contrast with the fur and knits all over the place. I also think I am going to need a GIANT pair of furry boots next fall. Maybe its the tiny models, but I think the proportion slims the thighs.

Liberty x Target

Liberty of London has always been a favorite shop of mine, partially for being old and traditional and still offering a current, fashion conscious assortment and partially for their amazing English garden floral prints. When I spent a summer abroad in college, I used to wander the store and browse the scarves for ages. Of course, I couldn't afford anything, but those prints and the amazing fabrics made me happy! So I am super excited that starting March 14th, Target will partner with the brand to sell apparel for both adults and children, plus accessories ranging from lingerie to birdhouses, and even a floral bicycle! How cute is the little baby ruffle dress/hat ensemble? Can't wait to check this collection out in store.
