Ladylike minimalism and modern color blocking make this pair of ZARA sandals perfect for spring.
Insects give me the heebie jeebies. Sure, I’ll tolerate the cute bugs*, but honestly, I’m thankful that the cat finds pleasure in attacking – and eating – any creepy crawler that wanders inside. It’d be an entirely different story if the creatures were as gorgeous as this Tony Duquette for Coach stick pin. Collecting bejeweled bugs is as close to entomology as I care to get.
*Cute bugs include butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, caterpillars … and that’s about it.
Last weekend, we celebrated the one-year anniversary of our first date with an overnight getaway to Milwaukee. Most of Saturday was spent downtown indulging in dinner and cocktails, but we did stop at the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory (“The Domes”) to try out my new camera. The warmth and humidity of the tropical dome was just an added bonus.
I’ve been looking for a nail color that was equal parts peach and tangerine (which, coincidentally, would be a lovely cocktail combination: “the peach-erine-tini”). While Chanel polish is a splurge, “June” is exactly what I hoped for – and the color I plan to wear all spring.
