Colored Contacts
I am nearsighted.  I have BCBG glasses that I love, but I don't wear them all the time (even though I should) because they don't always go with the 'look' I want for that day's outfit.  (Yes, I realize that sounds a little crazy...)  I had a thought the other night (as I was unsuccessfully attempting to fall asleep) that maybe I should get contacts....and if I do lilac would be such a fun color!

Is this a crazy?  I have no idea if I could actually even get myself to put a contact in my eye.  Do any of y'all wear contacts?  Have you ever thought about trying a fun color?

Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010
The fall collection made it's debut online yesterday (at C. Orrico, Splash of Pink, and Ocean Palm) exciting!  I liked the summer collection, but it was full of warm colors (which I guess makes complete sense for summer) and I usually tend to gravitate more towards cool colors...except pink!  I am so excited for the Lilly fall color palette!  Love all the blues and greens!

There are so many cute tops, sweaters, pants, and skirts...but I am crazy about all the fabulous fall dresses!

I am also loving the addition of loungewear.   How comfy do these look?!

What do y'all think of the fall collection?

DIY Projects/Crafting
I was feeling a little crafty this weekend and decided to make a cover for Mason's crate.  It's sitting in our living room and let's face's not the most aesthetically pleasing thing around.

I had some fabric left over after making the cover and I've been thinking the lampshade in our living room was in need of some serious snazzing I decided to try covering it.

I am obsessed with diy projects and crafting...and I'm always looking for new ideas.  I think I've looked at just about every article in the craft section of Martha Stewart's website.  What websites/blogs do y'all look to for diy inspiration?

What are you currently obsessing over?


  1. When I was 13 years old, my dad took me to get contacts for the first time. In the Dr's office, trying to put them in, I was unsuccessful for a good 15 minutes. The constant attempts made my eyes bloodshot and streamingly watery. Finally, he said to me, "You either put those in within the next 2 minutes, or you're keeping your glasses." And BAM! I popped those suckers right in.

    Been wearing them ever since. It takes some adjustment, but it's no big deal. You don't even feel them throughout the day.

  2. I have the cutest pair of Chanel glasses and LOVE them...don't wear them ever though:) not sure why.... I am thinking not on the contacts...I couldn't imagine trying to get them in. I am sure once you learn it all good though.
    Good job on your DYI!

  3. I looooove the Fall Lilly line! That striped wrap looks super cozy. Their colors just make me so happy!

    Your DIY projects look fab! Might have to try covering a lamp shade one of these days!

  4. I loooove the lilly fall line too!! Also, I wear contacts. Started when I was 15. It took a couple weeks to get use to, but now it's so second nature! You should go get a trial pair and see how they feel for you!

  5. I wear contacts every day, I've never been too fond of glasses. Once you get over the oddity of putting something in your eye contacts are great. Most eye doctors will give you a trial pair to see how they feel and if you like them. I did have colors in college, blue and green (I have blue/grey eyes) and they were very fun. Give it a try.

    And your DIY projects are amazing! If you're ever in the Southern California area let me're welcome to have at it in my place :)

  6. I love the pink flower bracelet and obviously the fall Lilly!!!

  7. I love the jewelry! I wear contacts, but have never changed my eye color with them :)

  8. I am currently obsessing over the huge vineyard vines sale, definitely did some emotional shopping there without too much damage to the checking account.
