Stuff I am loving

So I am tired and not feeling 100% (I am no MD but I am pretty sure I have a stomach ulcer) so you are going to get a hodge podge of things that I currently love. These are in no particular order of preference, I just need each and every one of these things. Immediately. 

My obsession with floral has not faded even a bit. I came across this painting and decided it has to make it's way into my home. I am thinking some serious hallway art with this baby. This will make you stop and stare. I just love the composition and moodiness of the piece. Black and floral, total juxtaposition. 
Another floral piece I came across this week. I love the boldness of color and design on this one. I totally see this over a couch or a mantle in a living room. Why was I not given the artist gene? I so dig it but instead of making something prolific, I would end up in a corner eating crayons. Let's be real. 
Can we please discuss how much Gap is killing it lately? I mean past 1992 where my entire wardrobe was from Gap, I really never thought we would be in sync as far as fashion went ever again. Well ladies, this bitch was wrong. Look at this dress. Just look at it.
A little impromptu dressing room shoot illustrating me being unable to resist the dress. Pardon the do.  If you follow me via Instagram, you get all of these up to the minute breaking news fashion finds, beautiful interiors and photos of unusual people, places or things. Nouns, people. Nouns. 
Another piece I couldn't leave without. These spotted skimmers. I mean how irresistible are these? I thought so too. 
So most have you have seen my front door, but those of you who haven't here she is after Mother Nature dumped on her. As a side note, the house numbers have already been changed to a brass. Don't you worry. 
So I figure, the only thing she is missing is this lovely hexagon door knocker. What do we think? I am quite certain she needs to make an appearance. 
So since I cannot figure out when Spring and it's warm weather is going to be here to stay, I am feeling like I need to start dressing the part to motivate the weather. Maybe I will influence it with this fabulous canvas tote. Adorned with a fabulous shade of red and a tassel, might I add. I cannot resist. 
And finally, some images that I have come across this week that have completely rocked my world. I mean I cannot resist a busy office space with flowers, a french press, photos and loads of books. So chic. 
This girl cannot resist neck candy and I am not sure where this piece hails from, but I need it.

  1. I am trying to do the same thing here with spring & my wardrobe. In fact, that necklace would look fantastic with what I'm wearing today. Hope you feel better soon.
