what to wear….in barcelona!

hello all! today is an exciting day for mary and me. we are headed to barcelona, spain very soon. our cousin, wake is getting married and so the family is going to make a vacation of it!

here’s an outfit inspiration for a day out in barcelona – shopping (the market!), sightseeing (gaudi!), eating(tapas!), drinking (vino!) and having a merry time!

find them here: uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis.

three things: home decor

one thing that i am absolutely crazy about is home decor. can’t get enough. i feel like i’m going to one of those people who moves all the time just so i can decorate a new space. haha.

here are some of my favourites that i have found lately:

1. these pillows! they might be making an appearance in my house sometime soon.  especially the eye one.

2. this little side table is perfect. the perfect amount of functionality, quirkiness and chicness all wrapped in one. wish he could come home with me!


3. THESE. i am absolutely infatuated with them. i want to hang them in my kitchen asap. i don’t have a green thumb (yet!) and these look pretty hard to kill. so maybe it’d work.

colour of the year

if you should know something about me  you should know that there are two things that i love more than anything in this world- 1-good handwriting/ a good font

and 2- COLOUR

so i was really excited when pantone released their colour of the year which is–

TANGERINE TANGO

the fashion world has already been hit by the tangerine bug–

here are some options of clothing that i found in some of my favourite stores so you can go ahead and don this fabulous colour:

**eek! that clutch is perfection!

and here are the rest of pantone’s colour choices for 2012:

adair: i’m loving of course the tangerine tango, but i think the sodalite blue and starfish are my other two favourites!
