If you’re a an accessory maven like I am, I’m always looking through my jewels to find something sweeter, better, different. Finally my search was a success. At the bottom of my jewel box there were these beautiful earrings, which were a gift I received from the Smithsonian Modern Art Museum, and I fell in love all over again. I love their eclectic contemporary style mixed with a little vintage flare. When you’re looking for something this weekend, dig to the bottom of your treasure box and pull out an old jewel love affair and wear it with something completely new.

I’ve been staring at the house across the street for years and thought you all might like it too. The Beach Bungalow is inspired by one of the most influential, iconic Artist of the 20th Century, Piet Mondrian. Mondrian tested limitations by simplifying color and structure. His radical works forever changed the design and artistic world. This Mondrian inspired beach bungalow, although understated and quaint, creates a wall of impact with it’s modern design.

I’ve been traveling down South the last couple of days with two of my favorite little buddies, which has been a blast. While I’ve been here, I’ve indulged, shopped…a little (don’t tell Bobby) and played in the Sunshine. In my constant search for the perfect staple, I stumbled across this really fun pair of Lucky wedges which are perfect for traveling because they go with everything and they are made of cork and canvas, so they’re incredibly comfortable. You can site-see for days in this find.
