Clear Skies Ahead

[show_ms_widget id="80388" image_id="126804" width="700" height="895"] I'm having a major light & airy moment! With my obsession spanning every shade from ecru to robin's egg, it looks like the moody days of Winter are finally behind me. I'm getting really excited for my trip to D.C. and I've got plans to stuff my luggage with breezy whites, comfy flats (for museum hopping, of course) and a little something to snap all of the fun details as they happen.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 - When my girl Sara shared her fun new purchase I couldn't help but think of all the little details I could document with one of these! Instagram is a blast but filtering and staging snapshots seems like a ton of work compared to the carefree shutter-snap + print style of this camera. Not to mention, I haven't printed a photo in years... I'd love to have some hard copies laying around!

H to T (head-to-toe) white via J.Crew - There's just something about all white that screams Spring. Although dangerous (I'm boycotting ketchup this season... one too many klutz moments), white ensembles are effortlessly cool and this ladylike skirt is at the top of my list. Weather permitting, I'm sticking to sparkly sandals and neutrals during our vacation.

Tradition Mayor Sofa - I last mentioned this modern couch here and have since fallen deeper and deeper for its clean lines and ice cream colored upholstery. At first I was thinking pink would be the perfect refresh for our space (God knows I won't be able to talk Mr. Jackson into it) but now I'm smitten with this smokey mint shade. With a toddler running around and coloring on the furniture we won't be trading up anytime soon but a girl can dream...

Aldo D'Orsay Flats - Natalie Instagrammed these fun flats and I'm in love! This cool blue is gorgeous but I'm also dying for the greige pair.

J.Crew Victorian Lace Top - Inspired by a vintage dress from the 20s, this lacy number is what dreams are made of... beautiful, Springtime dreams.

Southern Comfort

The longer I live in the South the more I fall in love with its charm... you just can't find history, hospitality or tradition like this anywhere in the world! We've been living below the Mason-Dixon line for almost six years and I'm finally coming to terms with abandoning my Yankee upbringing for a slower, sweeter lifestyle.

The funnest way to acclimate to Alabama has definitely been finding ways to incorporate a little bit of Southern comfort into our home. Where I may have opted for a minimalist Parsons desk before, something from the antique store fits nicely now (paired with an Eames chair, of cours... I'm never letting those babies go). A framed portrait of our first president? I would have called you crazy a few months ago but now I just can't get enough! One of my 101 in 1,001 goals was to start a collection and I've already picked up a few antique pieces of blue and white china. The challenge now will be to blend the two styles that I'm loving so much (modern and traditional).

There sure is something sweet about the South, ya'll. It's probably tea.

Happy Friday! + weekly roundup

happy-friday-new-format Happy Friday sweet friends! Let's shake things up, shall we? I've been posting weekly roundups for a looooong time and I don't know about you, but I've been thinking that the old format was getting a little stale. While I love sharing my favorite pins and tumblr images from the week (you can always follow along here & here), I'm ready for something new...

This week was definitely a fun one! We spent some time readjusting to life as a little threesome (after my family's departure over the weekend) and were able to reclaim our space with gusto. The holiday allowed an extra day of lounging and a large slice of chocolate cake for Lo. We FINALLY made a big furniture purchase... no more eating dinner on the living floor ya'll, this girl is getting a dining room table! The chairs (these Eames replicas) arrived yesterday and I've got a busy weekend of assembly ahead. Since college days die hard, Mr. Jackson is making the eight our trek to his Florida Alma Mater to attend some cheesy theme party while Lorelai and I spend a quiet girls weekend at home... TOGA!

Hopefully this weekend will provide a ton of downtime for you to surf the net because the blogosphere was poppin'! Here's what I loved this week:
