House of Holland

Hi folks,

Here's some Monday fashion inspiration for you from Australian Designer Henry Holland: House of Holland 2013 Resort Collection. It's very high school americana, with plenty of pleats, stripes, pompoms and letter embellished knitwear.

I hope you are all feeling energized for the week. I sure am, and with plenty of work to keep me busy busy. I went to bed at 10:30 last night which was a big wow! We've been trying to get to bed earlier the past few weeks but without success. I feel very refreshed after a much needed 8 hours of sleep.

I loved happening upon Antipodium's 2013 Resort collection while reading Oyster Magazine the other day. Here's the inspiration behind this line...

"Antipodium's new Resort collection is so 2013. It was partly inspired by a late-night text sesh in which the label's Creative Director, Geoffrey J. Finch, and Jamie Perlman, Creative Director at British Vogue, got a little finger-happy and went wild with the use of emojis (we've all been there). 
Continuing Antipodium's seasonal collaborations, Jamie created some exclusive emoji textiles for Resort — bows, roses, pistols and eyes are delicately embroidered onto peach organza for the 'Mixed Messages' textile, while the 'Double Digits' thumbs up/thumbs down print appears on a Tumblr-blue silk crepe de chine dress."

fun, fun, fun, right? Well, we're off to Virginia today to visit my sister, brother-in-law and two cute nephews for the weekend. I'm looking forward to spending time with family. What are your plans?

I'll be lying low this weekend...

Here's what these past few week's have looked like for us. . . 

Our AC went out last night, and I'm just praying the apt managers will get someone over here before the weekend. I'm sort of forced to lay low today (literally). I sprained my ankle real good last night while playing outside with my puppy, Wally. It's pretty swollen, and I can barely walk. I guess that makes this a reading, Downtown Abbey watching, Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week catching up on weekend. I hope you enjoy your weekend. I'll just be laying in bed, ankle rested atop a stack of pillows, with my fan keeping me cool...

Bye, Bonte

What I Wore Wednesday

Welcome to What I Wore Wednesday {Week: 19 Palazzo Pants}

These palazzo pants are amaze! I found them on my trip out west and fell in love immediately. They feel amazing to walk in, and show such great movement. They are the perfect thing for a summer evening out on the town.
