Didn't Work For These Feet...But Maybe You?

 When I saw these sandals it was love at first sight....
But sadly they didn't fit (run large and ankle strap is too big).  I am posting them here though because I still really love them (they are actually blue in color) so I want someone to have them!  Also, can't find these in my size....but if I do then maybe they can help ease the pain of losing the ones above.

She Does Not Disappoint

 I have been lucky enough to meet Suzanne Kasler a couple of times, the first in New York, the second in High Point.  Such a pleasure given I am a long time admirer and huge fan of her work.  Her client homes never disappoint so I knew I was in for a treat when Architectural Digest showcased her personal home.  Needless to say, the house is a gem.
 Those windows....

Rug To Pillow

 Do you all remember this bedroom?  Or more precisely the bolster pillow?
The pillow is actually the rug they bought for the room sewn into a bolster.  While beautiful, this room certainly is not a stranger to the blog world so why show it today?  Because, for those of you in Birmingham I saw these rugs at Home Goods on 280 yesterday and I thought they could be perfect for just such a project....
Happy hunting!

If you are following me on Twitter, you probably saw my new shoes, which i bought in January on sale in Bershka, and now i can finally show you these silver  ladies in some outfit.  I paired them with  dark blue coat, which i got thanks to Sheinside (you can check the model here) , and light almost bleached jeans also from Bershka. Sunglasses to achieve even more strict look, and pink lipstick to add some color. Ready in a snap! ;)
Hope you will like it!

Quiet Time

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he brought them out of their distress.
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.  
Psalm 107:28-30

This past week Henry had a horrible fall while he was with me.  He is perfectly fine but I don't know that I will ever fully recover.  I am so, so, so thankful for God's grace and everyone around me who He worked through to bring us comfort.

In one of my previous posts i asked you what type of sunglasses should i pick and here is my choice: Ray-ban for every season and  occasion, you gotta love them! :)
Regarding my outfit , i was pretty much inspired with one of my favorite looks from Mira Duma and i needed to "steal" her combo and wear it once! It never happened to me before to recreate some outfit from head to toe, but i really like this one, so here it is ... :) Hope you will like it!
Enjoy in your weekend and see you on Monday, with new outfit post again! 

p.s. and here are the results from the Romwe giveaway, thank you for participating! Congrats to a lucky winner with this email address :
