Hi Everyone -
I hope you're all still with us after our day of things ugly here in quaintland? It wasn't so bad and a little bit cathartic, but I have no plans to do it again anytime soon. I would definitely encourage all of you to consider it because I'd love to see your dirty laundry so to speak. Sharing is caring ;). Ok, now back to our regularly scheduled posting.
Today is St. Patrick's Day and we live in a neighborhood with many people of Irish descent and will be having the customary corned beef and cabbage dinner tonight - can't wait. I have several friends from Ireland who never really had that meal until they arrived in the US, which is interesting. I also used to work on Fifth Avenue and have seen & heard the grand parade many times. All day long the beat of the bass drum - thump, thump, thump, thump!
In keeping with the green [+pink] theme, I saw an episode last week on Martha Stewart about the 50th anniversary of Lilly Pultizer. I don't have many pieces of Lilly's or come from the customary waspy background, but I embraced preppydom when I was in college and somewhat ever since. Scott is also quite preppy and does come from the customary waspy background. Since green + pink is a classic color combination, I thought it would be fun to feature them, today.
Erin Go Bragh (Ireland Forever) and Lilly, too!
Kate Spade for Lilly : see the word lilly in green?
The Preppy Handbook is a classic. The Sea of Grass is the perfect color combo.
Brooks Brothers shirt. I took this photo the other day, which is why it's not on white like the others.
Swell paper Bermuda bag by Cynthia Rowley.
Lacoste is my preference, but Scott likes Ralph Lauren polo shirts.
I don't know why I have this Tipsy In Madras book as we don't drink. Kate Spade paisley journal.
PS I'm trying a soft focus setting on my camera and getting the white balance just right has been a challenge. The light is changing for the better as we transition into spring, but is also taking some adjustment. If I don't set the exposure just right, it is a real struggle for me in post-production as my hair tends to get very messy when I pull on it ;).
