Friday Loves

Happy Friday!!  It's been raining nonstop here in Houston, and the weekend doesn't look like it's going to clear up.  Since I'm lacking my much-needed Vitamin D from the sun, I'm a little scatterbrained.  Bear with me.  I decided for today's post I'd just share a little of the things I loved this week.  First off, this:

Show some respect to the grapes!

I'm also loving 2 Penny Blue- the new company founded by Erin Gates, the writer and interior designer behind Elements of Style.  2 Penny Blue features gorgeous chic blazers and jackets. What really appeals to me is the tailored fit of many of them- something that is hard to find for a 5'2" girl!  Even better, for every jacket purchased, a school uniform is donated to a girl in need in Africa.  This is my favorite- if only I had $275 to spare! 

This weekend, I plan to finally create a physical inspiration board in my home office extra bedroom.  My girl Lindsay over at Sadie & Stella has made it very simple by sharing a DIY and gorgeous photos of her own board.


I loved seeing Rue Magazine's co-founder Crystal Gentilleo show off her home on Apartment Therapy.  My favorite part was her bedroom.  So feminine and ethereal-

How great is that vintage Vogue print above her bed?  Gorgeous.
Have a great weekend, lovelies!


  1. I LOVE that wine bottle label! Seriously, how true is that?! Also, that Vogue print is to die for. Have a fabulous weekend, Sam!

  2. I freaking love that wine bottle, hahaha. Respect, people!

  3. Crystal's home is gorgeous! I love a studded fabric headboard.

    Making a inspiration board that you can touch makes redesigning seem more real than when the ideas are floating on your computer. Can't wait to see final product!

  4. Omg that label! Hilarious!
    I had not heard of Erin's company and can't wait to chek it out. What a great idea!
    Your board is going to be amazing!

  5. I too am a Texas girl- much further north though. The 2 Penny Blue jacket is too cute. Love the print and colors. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Cheers, Elizabeth of The Corner Apartment

  6. Haha at that funny!

    Hopefully the rain lets up. Must be soo humid there...yuck!

  7. Okay, that wine label is a-ma-zing & I love all these interiors... Crystal Gentilleo's home tour is to die for.

  8. I've been dying to make my own inspo board, too - Pinterest just makes it so easy that I'm having trouble getting started! Just found your blog and I love it, btw! :) Can't wait to read more!

  9. That wine bottle label is hilarious. I'm also loving Erin's new venture...great idea and wonderful way to give back. Have a great weekend! xx

  10. Thanks for the shout out my love!!!

  11. Great posts! I want that wine!

  12. I adore all of these. That wine...oh that wine...hilarious! And I love Lindsay's board, so chic! And now that bedroom, let's chat about that. That is totally the bedroom I'd want if I were single. It's amazing!

  13. It started raining in OC yesterday!
    I hope it all clears up soon! Also, this is great...been looking for some room inspiration since I'm moving everything around my bedroom right now!!

    Shuntla ARMPARTY Giveaway!
