porter hovey's favorite heirloom

I loved this sweet piece on Refinery29 featuring tastemakers and their favorite heirloom. My favorite, of course, was Macau trực tuyến BaccaratPorter Hovey with her mother's framed Hermès scarf (and not just because she's a fellow Kansas Citian). Its peach, coral and pale green color palette is perfect. Their mother, who picked the scarf up in Paris on her honeymoon, thought it pretty enough to be a work of art. And If I were to ever find a scarf as beautiful, I'd certainly follow suit. I remember obsessing over this same framed scarf in Porter and Hollister's book, Heirloom Modern. Actually, the entire book inspired my former apartment. Porter and Hollister have the most stellar taste. If you have a moment, visit the Hovey's design site here!

jackie + caroline

When I was little, I wanted to do everything my mom did. I would always be sneaking into her makeup bag and painting my cheeks with eyeshadow or trapsing the house in her shoes. I wanted to be just like her. These sweet photos of Jackie with baby caroline remind me of growing up. Jackie has been on my mind recently as I’ve been reading Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story by Barbara Leaming. It would be a great gift for your mother if you haven’t already picked something up! Another highly recommended Jackie pick: Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy. It's surreal to hear her candidly talk about Camelot. As for me? My mom could care less about the Kennedy's, so I will be giving her a Lulu Lemon gift card :)

life well planned

While flipping through channels the other day, I happened to pass MSNBC on a commercial break and caught a this wonderful Raymond James ad. Who thought that a commercial for a financial services company could be so stylish and good-natured? I want to be best friends with Emily Skinner, fastidious librarian and oldest woman to ever live. Raymond James also has another commercial I love called "The Five Harriets." Don't they make you happy? :)

a tour of kansas city

A few Sundays ago, my girlfriends and I went on a tour of some of my favorite places in Kansas City. They're very patient and let me pose and photograph them with my Instax, which was wonderful. I thought I'd share the results and detail a bit about our day just in case you ever visit :)
Megan, Kayla and I first went to Donna's Dress Shop for her annual Garden Party, the event at which the store rolls out their new Spring inventory. Donna's is like a brick-and-mortor Modcloth. It's amazing. I didn't buy anything that day, but my friend Megan snatched the most beautiful silk floral frock ca. 1940. Insert clapping emoji here.
Next we visited Prospero's Books (located just a stone's throw from Donna's). I always say that Prospero's is Kansas City's answer to New York's Strand. It's filled with a vintage assortment of books on every topic imaginable. I'm always impressed by their gardening and art inventory. The colorful spines of the books make the ladder-lined ailes look like candy. We could have easily spent several hours here.
But we were hungry. There is a crêpe place in the crossroads, Chez Elle, which is delicious and has outdoor tables shaded by big red umbrellas. The only downside: sunshine and two crêpes (one sweet, one savory) are a deadly combination and will cause naps.
We couldn't take naps because had to stop at Hall's, a beautiful independant department store that sells the best of everything. I was on a mission to find the perfect "I'm-not-wearing-lipstick" lipstick. In the midst of the hunt, Megan introduced me to Creed's Spice and Woods, a $710 perfume that smells like heaven. When I'm an old woman, this is what I'll wear. I did find my lipstick, by the way: Givenchy's Rouge Ectasy #509. It's worth every bit of the $35 price tag.
After a long weekend in Chicago, I was happy to come home to my little city. We may not have an Hermès, but we make up for it in kindness. Come visit soon.

dream car

I've never been one for cars. However, I had a change of heart on Tuesday evening when a pretty older woman drove past me in this exact pale green Fiat, top down, grey hair blowing in the wind. The moment I saw the car, I knew I had to have it someday. I’ve never had a desire to drive anything but black or silver cars in the past, but I am enamoured by this green hue. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my high school french teacher, who I adored, drove a little VW this color. At any rate, a new car is sadly not in my immediate future. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t test drive one, right? :)
