I absolutely love the combination of navy and white. It's so crisp, and the color combination screams warm weather to me! I love the color combination so much, I would never limit it to just clothing! Here are some of my navy and white inspiration images:

These pictures are making me want the warm weather to hurry up and arrive! Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Lilly State of Mind

Have y'all seen the new Lilly pattern, Lilly State of Mind? It has a patch for every state, and I love it! 

I may have to go check out a piece at my local Lilly store in this print!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Tiffany, please!

As I'm sure you've figured out, I love Tiffany blue. I actually convinced my parents to paint our laundry room Tiffany blue a few years ago, and I just love it! Sometimes I think the whole Tiffany theme and color can get a little tacky, if done incorrectly. However, here are some rooms that pull-off the Tiffany color perfectly!

I'd love a Tiffany-colored room in my house one day! Happy Friday! Have a fabulous weekend!

Lilly Lover

I just wanted to share an adorable Etsy store I found with you, Say Hay Gifts. They have Lilly-inspired canvas paintings with monograms, which is the prefect combination, if you ask me! I might have to add one of these to my room sometime soon....

Aren't they gorgeous? Have a great day!

The Parent Trap

As I've said before, I love looking at real estate, and I could look at photos of homes all day! Being the real estate junkie that I am, I drool over homes in movies that I love, and I love learning about the real homes that were used in movies.

One home I love, love, love is Elizabeth's London townhouse in The Parent Trap! It's fabulous!

From the street, the house is gorgeous! 

I love all of the framed pictures and painting in the hallway! And the burnt orange color is so warm and inviting.

I love the molding and built-in bookshelves. 

I love Elizabeth--she's so chic!

 Interested in purchasing this home? It was listed for sale in May 2010 for a cool 18 million dollars!

What movie homes do you love? Have a wonderful day!

Working Girl

I'm not sure if I told y'all, but I'm doing an internship right now at a company that I'd LOVE to work for after graduation. The environment isn't casual, but it's not too corporate. I thought I'd do a Polyvore of some of the outfits I've been wearing lately. As you can see, I've been trying to incorporate some color, so I'm not too boring! If I remember, I'll try to take some OOTD posts, too!  
Internship Days

What do y'all wear in corporate environments? How do you incorporate color? 

Also, have y'all heard "Drink in my Hand" by Eric Church? I am obsessed! It's been on replay on my iPod, and I just can't get enough! It makes me think of summer! 

Hope you have a great day!

Snowy Surprise

How adorable is this? Is it too much for me to ask that my future husband proposes like this...and has someone capture it? Ahhh LOVE this! 

Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Why, thank you!

Let me start off by saying, I love, love, love giving and receiving handwritten thank you notes. I love looking for cute (usually monogrammed) stationery. I think sending handwritten notes says a lot, and it shows the recipient that you appreciated his or her thoughtfulness. I've found a few really cute stationery sets for $1 or less at Michael's and the dollar section at Target, so it doesn't need to be expensive! Here are a few designs I love: 

Do you love giving an receiving handwritten thank-yous as much as me? Where do you buy your stationery? 

On Tuesday, I was tagged by Emily from Classes, Cases, and Chaos to do a fun little questionnaire. Emily and I have expanded our blogger buddy relationship to emailing, and she is just the sweetest! Thanks so much for tagging me, Emily!

"I couldn't help but wonder, can you make a mistake and miss your fate? Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are." --Carrie Bradshaw 

I've been thinking about fate a lot lately. This crazy concept, that somehow, every step, road, and detour we take is  predestined. I've been struggling with some tough decisions, and I can't help but wonder if the decisions I'll make will somehow alter or change my fate. Or is my fate already determined based on the choices I will make? 

I guess none of us will never know, but I can't help but wonder: what do you think determines our fate? What do you think about fate? Do you believe in fate? 

Happy Wednesday!

When I grow up...

...I want to be Kyle Richards. Are any of y'all as obsessed with this Real Housewife of Beverly Hills as I am? 

LOVE her! I think she's so funny, and I love her style. 

Also, if I could marry someone as hunky as her husband Mauricio, I would! 

Do you watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Who's your favorite? Have a wonderful day!
