Happy Friday guys!  The countdown is really on for me… one week from today and I’ll be jet-setting off to Paris. I can’t wait. This week was full of shipping our new spring designs and hustling to get more of the most popular styles made.  I am really looking forward to the downtime from the internet I’ll have while abroad so that I can brainstorm some designs for upcoming seasons, gaining inspiration from the natural and romantic surroundings.  I definitely think it’s the perfect place to go to replenish design inspiration.

Onto this week’s list!

The List Week 14

DATE DRINKING: A super funny article about how and what to drink on a date.

BEAUTY & FUNCTION:  Probably the most beautiful kitchen accessories and tons of other minimal, artsy goods from home to fashion.  The name of the shop – spartan – says it all.

MESSINESS WELCOMED:  If you’ve never had an outdoor rug before, make this your year.  They look like chic flat-weave rugs that you’d put indoors, but they’re usually made of plastic fibers and can just be hosed off outside.  I bought one for my patio this year, but I used to have one in my kitchen and in my entry.  I hope to get a new one for indoors soon and this beauty from One Kings Lane is high on my list.

INSPIRATION UNLIMITED:  I discovered homify this week, and subsequently, I’ve been ogling gorgeous European homes.  If you love getting inspiration from across the pond, this is the place to do it. I love this warehouse-turned apartment and think it might inspire a few decision in my future home (black-cased windows, I’m looking at you).

IT’S TOPS:  If you don’t have a panama hat yet, it’s time.  This one from Cuyana is my favorite and looks good on everyone.  Go ahead, treat yo’self.
