Happy Thursday! Today a good friend of mine was in town, and we had a chance to catch up over a green iced tea-a nice change of pace from the regular coffee considering the current muggy weather. Always the most considerate and thoughtful friend, he gave me this beautiful tribal bracelet and a birdcage (to appear in a later post).
I love the new addition to my wrist candy. We’ve discussed the origin of this obsession here. This piece reminds of the many tribal prints and amazing accessories I’ve seen around town, in the mags, and across the style blogs.
Even just a touch, like this beautiful bracelet, can add a layer of tribal to any outfit…say a red and white polka dot dress? I think I like it. I’m sure this will be worn on many occasions. Thanks friend!

Happy Monday kids! I just wanted to share a quick link with y’all. My little sis is living the dream in Londontown, chronicling it and her fashion musings on her AMAZING blog: Hyde Park Corner. I literally want to jump into every single picture she posts.
Keeping with our London theme I saw these on pinterest the other day. I immediately wanted to pick these up for her. Appropriate for the Olympics, should it rain of course.

Now that Jazz Fest has come and gone this year (posting miscellaneous JF pics soon), I am faced with a post-JF depression. Much like when Mardi Gras rolls in and out, I always get a little sad. The anticipation for long days and nights of musical revelry and liquid libations is nearly (nearly) as much fun as Jazz Fest itself.
Jazz Fest is a nice answer to Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras takes care of the winter duldrums and Jazz Fest takes care of the antsy desires for spring and summer fun. But now that Jazz Fest has said hello and good-bye, Wednesday at the Square offers some semblance of the ‘Fest and a nice break in the middle of the work week. « Read the rest of this entry »
