Here's what is getting me (or keeping me, as the case may be) going this week - inspiration boards? Ha! Not here - only time for mood, uh, piles. Mood piles. Yes. And they can help gather your thoughts, make you see what you have in a new way, or provide direction for style and your mood, too. Atleast in my world. This week - Cardis, books, bracelets, catalogs, and socks.
First off - books:
Bohemian Manifesto was a circa 2005 snag from Anthropologie. Ben and I used to read it as we dreamed of what might come for our lives. . . it has things like "Boho Names", and style guides with illustrations. Seriously - see below for your next audition, I mean, interview. I love it. And it makes me remember that it's not always about things that make sense.
The Sartorialist - a book version of the incomparable blog. My friend had it autographed for me. I love it and look at it all the time for inspiration.
Now to cardigans and accessories:
Those are Ben's black, chunky socks and yes. I love them. And am wearing them sticking out of my booties with my jeans tucked in. Makes me want the J Crew camp socks.
Loving tons of bracelets all layered up. I am loving the solid color frocks in the stores right now, and it all looks so cute with layered jewelry. These were gifts from my Mom and my Mother-in-law. And the silver and gold one all about May - my birth month. Love that.
Wearing the dog out of this Farrah B. Texas necklace from Gypsy Wagon. They have tons of good options there - such a cute store. And cardis from everywhere, Fossil, J Crew, Target, and H & M. They are so cute over solid and plaid woven shirts. Warm too.
I found this groovy belt at Target several years ago, and I love how it looks like a 70's guitar strap. I wear it over sweaters and cardis alot for a little texture. And what can I say. The current Anthro catalog is more than I can handle. The styling for the home goods is beyond. The station wagon and airstream are so dreamy.
Here's to good moods this Monday!
