What are you up to this weekend? It is supposed to be 73 degrees here in Manhattan, so I will be at Central Park soaking up sun while playing with my best friend Allison‘s new puppy, Frankie! And speaking of warm weather and playing outside, aren’t these photos so pretty? My friend, Anna Sweet, who is an amazing photographer, took these great shots of her best friend, Candice. I loved them so much that I decided to order myself some prints and frame them. This way I will be able to enjoy the beautiful, yet fleeting cherry blossoms of spring, all year round.

Enjoy your weekend, and always, thanks so much for reading!

Hugs, SPxx

P.S. This is Frankie, and so there is no confusion…she is girl.

Don’t you wish you could be as lucky as Betty and jump up high, right next to the Seine? Lucky duck.

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have to run into meeting right now, but wanted to post this adorable photo found on Cupcakes and Cashmere. I love her dress and his pants.

P.S. This car looks like my mom’s first car. She told me she named it Patchouli because she loved the smell so much.

I wish

Think of how awesome your feet would feel slipping into a pair of freshly chilled heels on a hot summer day.

Welcome weekend!

I am so unbelievably happy it is Friday. Maybe by the time next Monday rolls around, I will start to fall back into my normal routine. I always find it so tough to come back and regulate after having a lovely two weeks off. Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures from around the web today. Enjoy your Saturday and Sunday sweets! (And, if you are in New York, be prepared…it is supposed to snow tomorrow!)

Can you believe Christmas is over already? I feel like I blinked and it was gone. I hope you all had a lovely holiday and enjoyed time with family and friends. I also wanted to say how much I appreciate you, my dears, for coming to the blog and reading, even during these busy holiday times. It means the world to me, so thank you!

I am off to the mountains now, to indulge in some good ol’ fashioned fun cross-country skiing with the parents. I am so excited! I hope to have photos to share with you on Monday. But, in the meantime…relax, stay warm (or cool) and enjoy the weekend! SPxx

p.s. I am really digging that cream bag. And that hat and pom pom scarf? How cute would those be up on the snowy slopes?!
