what I am loving, today

So I am switching it up today. No recipe post. Waaa waaaa. Sorry, folks. What I am actually loving today is takeout. Let's be real here. I haven't cooked since last week. Awesome homemaking skills over here. We all have our days. Weeks. Or months. Chef's week off.  However, this does not mean that I cannot be inspired by some major pretty and things that I desperately want. Short and sweet. The way we like it. 

Is this tiled floor not to die for?? Omg. Obsession is washing over me. Makes me want to call the whole thing off and travel wherever this may reside and make it my new home. 
The new clothing line 2 Penny Blue by Erin Gates and Marie Whitney. They were featured in the latest Matchbook Magazine for their stylish pieces, also for their giving spirits and business model. I have to make one of these blazers mine. I don't need to tell you the reasons. 
This color slays me. 
I have had this image pinned for 16 years. Just about. Love the inspiration it brings. It is somewhat the look I want to achieve in our guest room which must be completed within 2.5 weeks for some out of town guests. Pressure. Loving that bedside table. It makes the space. Where oh where do I find something such as this?
Me thinks this will be an awesome substitute for the cabinet above. Love it and the price is right. 
In effort to find a special someone a special gift for their special day, I happened upon this image. My obsessive self scoured the internet until I found where I could get this life changing canvas tote. 
Again. Flaunting this fabulous piece in my face. Typical. 
Found it. Taaa daaa. A Tiffany and Co piece. No shocker there considering the distinctive turquoise hue. Needless to say, I will not be buying it anytime soon, but that doesn't mean I do not want to. 
Also, while I was on the hunt for that special someone, I found this adorbs monogrammed canvas beach bag. Then I started perusing the online shop of Monogram Goods. Let me tell you. Some fabulous things over there. 
This table setting! I love, love, love the beachy yet ethnic vibe happening here. And wait for it...that dip dyed starfish is a DIY. That is right. Who else needs that bamboo flatware?!? Agreed. 
I mean melt my freaking heart. This dog loves a well styled ottoman and has my heart and soul for life. I cannot even get mad at her for laying on our nice things when she looks at me like this. I just want to start fanning her as if I am her subject. This is Stella's world, afterall. 
I hope you all have the loveliest of weekends. Loves!
