One Kings Lane day!!

So, don't know if you've noticed but I'm kind of in awe of this girl, Amber lewis-

Right after you go shop for a moment at OKL, you should go check out her blog.
It makes my life complete!

thanks, loves!!

magpies and me

I don't think of myself as a girly, glittery kind of person 
but every once in a while something shiny catches my attention. I don't know if I could live in a lacquered up home but on occasion I find myself jealous of some of those who do. 
some examples of my jealousy include...

(hot pink and hermes orange and mocha never make an ugly love child, just sayin')

My favorites are 1,4,5and 6.
I like the wall color of this last one, but am way not a fan of the too "match-y" pillows.  
Anyone else concur?  
oh, and the photos are from pinterest .
((if you're not on pinterest nightly, you're not living!!))

anyway, night guys!

Workin' it

So, I'm on the job hunt and summertime is really messing with my sense of interview appropriate clothing.
It is super duper hot here in DC and I'm having trouble keeping my toesies in anything other than flops.
Digging around in my closet has me wishing for a guidebook on not suffocating in the heat while maintaining an adult appearance,ie: no sundresses, flops,tanks,etc.
A girl's life is too hard sometimes. 

here are some ladies that I think have done a great job dressing for work.
Maybe I'll glean a few pointers.

yeah, I drank the minty fresh cool aid. 

sans kid, but i don't see how this is inappropriate for the workplace.

Ms.Meares does it right. 
Rowdy is the perfect accessory for ANY outfit!!love himmm
i also like how he's literally besie himself of this sofa :)
