Instant Replay: November 2013

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! We barely left the house and it was absolutely perfect. Here are a few of my favorite snapshots from last month:

  • Layers of dainty jewels worn on Thanksgiving
  • Picked up a polka dot shirt and a necklace to match at the J.Crew Factory Store
  • Baked an apple pie
  • Donned mittens for the first time this season
  • Visited downtown Madison for afternoon drinks with Dave
  • Topped off a little white dress with a black bow belt
  • Decked the outdoor deck
  • Welcomed this DVF clutch to my collection for a song
  • Upgraded to the gold iPhone (and then immediately covered it up with this case)
  • Mixed costume jewelry with fine gems
  • Wore tartan flats a lot 
  • Enjoyed Japanese candy, a little surprise gift from our friend who lives in the country

I’m enjoying a lazy Sunday seeking inspiration in a coffee table book, admiring my new sunglasses (yesterday’s T.J. Maxx find for $30), and applying a bright, red-orange lacquer. What are you up to?

Instant Replay: March 2013

Treated myself to a bouquet of tulips (my favorite flower). Indulged in the prettiest Lilly Pulitzer dress (seen here). Rediscovered an old JewelMint necklace. Spent a sick day curled up with Bacon. Welcomed this Wendy Mink necklace into my wardrobe (c/o). Tried a new brewery town. Sipped a refreshing cocktail on St. Patrick’s Day instead of drinking green beer. Couldn’t believe my luck when I found a coveted coat on eBay (seen here). Wore just a hint of mint.   

Visited friends in the Twin Cities and stopped by the Fulton Brewing Company. Splurged on a Lulu Frost necklace. Tried a recipe that makes just two chocolate chip cookies. Wore a chipper nautical scarf from Lilac Bijoux (c/o). Played dress up in that Lilly Pulitzer dress before taking it to the tailor. Layered delicate bracelets with a masculine watch. Went overboard with my favorite lip color (Revlon Lip Butter in “Sweet Tart”). Spent a snowy day admiring jewelry from Julie Vos (c/o). Ate a lot of Easter candy.

 I’d love to keep in touch with you on Instagram @bedknobsandbaubles.

Finding this coat on eBay inspired me to dig out my Banana Republic clutch from the same season. Together, they’re the perfect canvas for spring’s delicate gems.

It’s hard to get back into the swing of things after a weekend of little indulgences: dining out, at-home manicures, and a sweet lemon-scented candle.

Valentine’s Day is a fun excuse to go over the top with loving gestures, eat as many mini cupcakes as possible, and wear red shoes. Dave surprised me with a Swarovski trinket box. It’s such a glamorous way to store delicate jewelry. I gave him this cordovan money clip wallet (without the logo) that’s handmade in Milwaukee and lobster-print boxers to match my pajama pants. Matching pjs is definitely a sign of true love.

There are more moments from yesterday on Instagram

I’m okay with being a Kate Spade fan girl, but last week may have been a little over the top. I scored an autographed copy of Things We Love, found cocktail plates at TJ Maxx for $27*, and wore these lovely earrings. 

*Here’s a set on eBay for $46.50.

I painted my nails last night, but I can’t wait to use the new Estee Lauder polish I picked up a few hours ago. It’s the most lovely shade of robin’s egg blue. Have a wonderful weekend!

I’m just as enamored with Aubin & Wills’ dapper fox as I am with the mittens I purchased late last year.
