Swimming around in my brain today: Bright as can be with a side of summer. Think I need a cabin by the sea to live out my brightly colored dreamscape.

Cabanas aren't just for the rich and glamorous anymore. If you find yourself sans pool but with an awesome old porch, take a note from the Novogratz handbook and plunk some cabana-esque drapery porch-side. And then invite me over for some lemonade. I'll bring the vodka.

outdoor beds work mighty fine too

Refinery29 Shop Stalking

Refinery29 has gone and done something beautiful. They've curated a whole bevy of pretty wares in their sparkling new R29 Shops. Have you seen? From summer skivvies to Editor closet shopping, it's hard not to find a little ol' something you want, need, gotta have. I've already got a boat load of goodies in my cart.

The Sequin Bandwagon

There's no denying that sequins are having a major moment. One that I think needs to make its way into my hot little hands. We're talking sparkling sequin clutch action.
Dazzling purses are the new black. Grab one in every color under the metallic rainbow

And if you're feeling more crafty and less spendy, check out this DIY from the pages of SMP's Fashion & Beauty Mag. It's the hotness.

because really this is how my brain puts things together. A mashup of visual proportions from kiss my neon ball gown to leopard top to stair bottom.

a wee smidgen of gold (or brass while we're at it) does a kitchen mighty good. Actually a pop of gold does anything good in my opinion. Are you with me?
and it pairs extra nice with Carrera Marble. These two soul mates are a must in my future dream kitchen. But for now, while I'm in my itty bitty love nest, sans big, beautiful Carrera draped Kitchen, I'll stick to easy peasy gold accents. Gilded espresso sipping anyone?

Get the Look: Romantic Boho

It's hard not to fall head over heels for Jen Huang's beautiful images. It's also hard not to be totally and completely inspired. As in a full blown bohemian extravaganza is the way to go for all things wedding. At least today it is. And if one were to partake in said extravaganza then surely the above attire is the way to go. Now add in a big, wild bouquet and boom. Hippie Dippie Magic.

1. Wedding Dress: BHLDN Cascading Goddess Gown
2. Floral Halo: Twigs & Honey Flower Blossom Halo
3. Sparkle Sandals: Piperlime Enzo Angiolini
4. Gold Cuff: Net-a-porter Oscar de la Renta cuff
5. Wood Necklace: Anthropologie Balanced Necklace
6. Embroidered Shift Dress: Anthropologie Gardenia Shift
7. Suede Sandals: Zara Platform Sandal

Midsummer Dreaming

Jen Huang is one of my favorite image capturers ever. She has a way with the light, this one. It's the kind of photo taking that is equal parts gorgeous and insanely magical. so when she offered up the prettiest midsummer night's dream inspired shoot I ever did see, I of course jumped at the chance to share with you all. It's boho bridal musings at its best with wild, overgrown bouquets and a headpiece by Poppies and Posies that will make your inner hippie sing. I know mine is.
