Mother's Day Friday

5/09/2014


Are you lucky enough to be spending the weekend with your mom or something special to you? I surprised my mom with a hotel room for the night, so we'll be drinking some wine, indulging in a spa treatment, and staying the night. I hope Alexa and the rest of you moms get properly spoiled. See you back here on Monday.



Our hearts are heavy after learning of this story.

What if Ana Wintour was your mom?

See all of the 2014 Met Gala red carpet looks here.

This is much better than the red carpet, if you ask me.

And because "wedding season" is the closest thing we come to a red carpet, we've started pinning our favorite looks for spring and summer weddings. See them on our Wedding Guest Pinterest board.

The benefits to green clay. Great for this dry weather in California!

Major house crush

MAJOR J. Crew swim sale. 25% off swim (and shorts and tees). We'll be stocking up for summer. This bandeau top is in my shopping cart and this suit would be perfect for the 4th of July (thinking ahead...).

Lulu and Georgia is hosting a Pop Up Shop at the end of the Month. Stop by and pick up some pretty things for your home. And if you can't find anything, Alexa will be there, so you can at least get an autograph ;)

If you're a Wes Anderson fan (or actually, even if you aren't), you'll find this video hilarious. Warning: there is nothing inappropriate in the spoof but the word "porno" does come up so proceed with caution if you're at work!

And in case you missed it:

Kirby was featured on The Everygirl. Still pinching myself.

Since a few of you asked, the floral dress from The Everygirl photos is Maurie & Eve and you can buy it here. Maurie & Eve also makes a cute romper in the same print.

Gaby from The Vault Files stopped over on Monday to share her Perfect Sunday.
