i heart anne hathaway

I'm not a fashion blogger by any stretch of the imagination... but I thought Anne Hathaway looked absolutely beautiful in all eight of her costume changes last night. However, if I had to choose a favorite, it would have to be that fabulous, fringed Oscar de la Renta number. Every girl needs a dress that makes her want to do a little dance. What was your favorite look from the Academy Awards?

sweet lulu

I just ordered these little beauties from Sweet Lulu for my darling sister's 14th birthday party on Saturday. I think they will be the perfect addition to her country chic soiree.

*Also loving their adorable glass bottles and polka dot party cones.

every day is valentine's day

This weekend was one for the books. It started out with a trip to the VNSA book sale and lunch at La Piccola Cucina. That was followed by a visit to the Willo District for their annual historical homes tour and a sweet treat at Sweet Republic. Last night we spent a quiet Valentine's Day with a heart shaped pizza, a bottle of wine and a romantic movie. Life is good friends, life is good.

The new arrivals from have been making the rounds on the blogs lately... and while I love their sparkly accessories as much as the next girl {I wore this one at our wedding rehearsal dinner} it's the ultra high, perfectly messy bun that has really grabbed my attention. I'm planning on adopting it as my go-to hairstyle for spring. Who's with me?

*I am also totally smitten with this little behind the scenes video of their photo shoot for the new collection... spotted via the lovely Deanna over at Mellow Fever. Check it out!
