The Veranda House

Love the idea of yarn tied around throw pillows. Must try.

I came across this charming boutique hotel in Nantucket and had to share the loveliness that is The Veranda House. I've never been to Nantucket, but would love to spend some time in this quaint New England town.

The Laundress and the Dog

I learned about The Laundress through Daily Candy. This website offers eco-chic products for your laundry room and for actually doing the laundry. The items above would make a very nice house warming gift. Why not make your laundry room pretty?

Another fun site I learned about through my friend, Morgan, at Attention to Detail is Harry Baker's eco-friendly, and equally adorable pet products.

Santa Barbara Style

I spent a long weekend in Santa Barbara, and I must say, this City Girl could spend some serious time in this laid back beach town.

Yes, this is a tandem bike. Check out the scenery in the left background.

I know this post is all about Santa Barbara, but I did make it to LA to visit some family. I couldn't leave without stopping by my favorite breakfast spot in Beverly Hills, Jack and Jill. If you happen to go, order the mini blueberry muffins to go along with your brunch.

This little vignette is the front counter. Precious!

J. Crew for Fall

Last night I sipped some white wine on my patio, unable to accept the fact that it is indeed August, while I flipped through the J. Crew Fall preview catalog. Here are a few of my favorite findings for my absolute favorite season.

This Timex watch will by on my birthday list for sure!


I love this light, airy dress paired with a structured blazer or leather bomber.
