With a recent trip to NYC under my belt, I cannot stop thinking about the met. the art. the glory. the love. the beauty. If you're into art at all..even if you just think something is pretty...I'm down with that. A trip to the met was a big deal for me (having been once before, I could never appreciate the art then as i do now), as you see I was an art history major, so yeah, I love this stuff. The amount of hours one could spend at the met is insane in itself..I could literally spend a week in there and we were pressed for time...so it was a game-time decision on where to go and what to see. I grabbed that met map and was gone (like speedy gonzalez).
the first painting I saw: Monet, Haystacks. I died.
Mo' Monet..the bride at giverny. See previous post here
Van Gogh, le sigh.
and then the dance class by Degas (AHHHHH!)
Degas again..he was killin' it and I was l-u-v-i-n' it.
I promise you, I've got more pictures and it was very hard to pick which ones made it up here. Big moments for this gal..you know you love it when you get a little teary eyed seeing these paintings in the real. You'd probably die if you knew how much time I spent writing a twenty eight page paper about those haystacks up yonder..so to actually see it, made it all that much more worth it. Wonder what will happen if I make it to the Louvre...oh lawd. Do you like art...have you been to the met? Let us know in the comments below.
The only thing exciting about ending a holiday weekend, is that you know it's going to be a short work week. In my mind, it's practically thursday night and tomorrow is friday. I'm just getting good vibes all around for this upcoming week and I think a lot of it has to do with my stellar weekend and the festivities planned for the upcoming one. I. Can't. Wait. I believe a lot of my happiness on this tuesday is because of last night. I reopened the door to my love of Paris. Yes, I had a french themed evening...mainly with my croque monsieur and my wine. But here's the bonus: I watched Midnight In Paris. I love this movie. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you march to your nearest video store (is that a thing anymore?!) and rent/buy this movie on itunes. It's worth it. If you're a wannabe french-girl like me, this movie is for you. Paris and what is was like in the 20's + all of your favorite innovating artists and writers of the period?! To die for.
dancing at midnight, in paris. sigh.
Have you seen this movie? Do you love it..do you hate it? Let us know in the comments below.
Hey! Hi! How are ya! Sorry for sucha long time no see over here on the blog. I must let you in on a little secret..I was swept away by NYC livin' for the past couple of days, hence my absence here. Something so magical happened to me while I was in the city, it was totally unexpected and out of nowhere...I acted like a total girl. Any thoughts on what this could be?! Well if the title of this post doesn't give it away, I guess I'll just tell you :) It was a typical New York Saturday filled with brunch, shopping in Soho and one long relaxing lunch with much needed cocktails (my favorite!).
At Morandi in the West Village..yum!
After lunch we decided to take a leisurely stroll through the west village when we just happened upon it. Yes, Carrie Bradshaw's stoop. I died. My inner sixteen-year-old self was back in an instant...I never thought out of all the streets in new york, we'd casually come across this stoop.
Perry Street, NYC
I know, it's silly to be such a fan-girl but it really was fantastic. There were girls of all ages and nationalities gathered round this unforgettable landmark of Sex and the City. How wonderful is it that one show can bring together so many different groups of people on one new york street?! To say it was a great afternoon is an understatement.
Gals by the stoop.

Last night we got a group together to take a scenic ride over to Louisville for the night. We went to see one of my favorite bands,Iron & Wine. It was a lovely evening filled with old friends, new friends, great beer and even better music. It was truly an ideal summer night, it took no time to plan and happened in an instant..the best. These are the times, y'all..I hope you're having a wonderful start to summer.
best place on earth

So tell me, what have you been doing so far this summer??
They're saying it's going to be a beautiful week her in the bluegrass...I must say I'm really looking forward to it. These hot temps have me wanting to escape to the beach ( I think we can all agree, the beach is the place to be ). So for your Monday, I figured I'd share a beachy mood board with ya.
Happy Monday, everybody! We just got the coolest accessory in store and it's going live over at www.bluetiquecheapchic.com today! Enter: The Gobi Strap.

June is right around the corner and that always makes me
think of weddings! In the spirit of the season, I wanted to share pictures of
two of my favorite wedding dresses. Both are equally classy and visions of
loveliness. The two brides have gone down in history as being icons with their
wardrobes, and they definitely don’t disappoint in their choice of wedding
