1. a girl's best friend.

    Thursday, March 22

    i have a thing for coats. red ones, fur ones, ruffled ones. this winter proved too short for much coat-wearing, especially in the snow. {which is my favorite. red coat + white snow = perfection.} it feels like spring outside, but i feel cheated out of coat-wearing weather! so here are a few pretty coats i rounded up to pine over. enjoy.

    {ps: did any of you see that fabulous raspberry taffeta confection of a coat that austin scarlett made on project runway: all stars?? it made my cry of joy a little bit.}

  2. wishing i had instagram.

    Monday, March 19






    snapshots from a weekend spent shopping, babyistting, and reading:

    yummy caprese salad, my dream dress, bright lemons, a discovery from meandering thought tai pan, and a doodle of poppet + widget from the night circus.

    all in all, a good weekend.

  3. dreaming of dresses.

    Thursday, March 15

    i started browsing online for prom dresses {it's that time of year again! feeling a bit giddy.} and unfortunately am not finding much that strikes my fancy...except for vintage 50's frocks. these babies make me want to squeal with glee.

    do any of you utah locals know of a vintage boutique//thrift store//place of awesomeness where i could possibly find a gem like these?

    one of the many colorful stickers on the door of the red iguana. aka the best mexican restaurant outside of actual mexico. they have the best salsa in the world and about a billion different kinds of molé. it's a very happy place to be.

  5. coco says hi.

    Friday, March 9




    after i woke her up, the puppy grudgingly relented to posing for a few pictures. she eventually gave up and curled back into a teeny weeny ball. and thus, this picture was born.

    doesn't that face just say "love me?"

    good thing we do. she's a bedhog. but a cute one.
