Fawnsberg, a company started by two sisters who fell in love with beautiful stationery when writing letters to one another at summer camp, creates notecards and writing sheet sets with gorgeous designs and calligraphy. I was led to Fawnsbery via Olive Box where the "I often think of you" writing sheet set caught my eye - what a lovely sentiment! Also, I adore those return address rubber stamps. Wouldn't they make a great housewarming present? All images credit to Fawnsberg.
Despite owning a few nice bags, I more often find myself using simple totes to carry things to work and I love the preppiness of these totes from Sloane Ranger. Apparently a "Sloane Ranger" refers to a young, preppy person from the UK, and specifically from the area near Sloane Square in Chelsea. I could see myself carrying the blue seersucker tote all summer long. Also, does anyone have a "weekender" tote? I've been seeing these everywhere (e.g., at Kate Spade Saturday where you can even design your own weekender) and they seem really functional. All images credit to Sloane Ranger.
Everywhere I look, a cute spring dress pops up! I can already hear Rob now - "You have so many dresses." True... but that doesn't stop me from lusting after another one!

We've been traveling in Southeast Asia for the past 19 days where the temps rose to triple digits and all I could think of was beaches and summer and air conditioning. And to what did we return? A blizzard in Denver.
I'm taking the turn back to winter personally and trying to think warm thoughts, including of these fantastic swimsuits from Faherty Brand. I learned of the brand via Vogue and love the prints and the fact that the swimwear fabric is made primarily from recycled polyester from plastic bottles. They make suits in a variety of cuts for both women and men and the fabrics are inspired by travels to Tahiti, Indonesia, and India. All images credit to Faherty Brand via the company's website.
A while ago, I posted about how I love the artwork on Kenton Nelson. If I could have any painting in my dining room (we currently have a blank wall just begging for a large painting), it would be one of Mr. Nelson's... a girl can dream! If you like his artwork, check out this video about Mr. Nelson. You can see him at work on new paintings, in his own home, and talking about his artistic process.
