Saturday Morning Daydreams

Gorgeous summer-y photo and dreamy
layered gray maxi skirt from Free People 

Washed-wood rattan baskets, simple and pretty.

Absolutely adore this wedding photograph.

Slightly obsessed with Scotch Naturals
non-toxic, water-based nail polish

Love this photo that Robbie snapped of the
outside of an old building somewhere on the east coast.

Last week's Saturday Morning Daydreams focused on color.  Today, I'm feeling the neutrals: pretty, subtle earth tones and elegantly relaxed natural hues.  The beginning of spring creates such a sweet mixture of neutral and color in nature, and tomorrow is officially the very first day of spring (hurray!). I hope these dashingly neutral-hued favorites of mine bring some inspiration to your weekend.

My weekend plans involve flying to Arizona tomorrow for a quick trip to meet my fiance (tonight is finally the last show of the band's 2-month winter tour), and spending a couple of days celebrating his birthday with his family.  My original plans were to fly out today, but last night I changed my flight so I could spend one more day with Bubby dog. The poor old guy has had several rough days this week, and I've been quite the worried mother.  If all goes well today, I'll be seeking some southwest inspiration in the sunshine tomorrow!

(Pssst!  You can check out past editions of Saturday Morning Daydreams right here.)

In case you missed Thursday's post, yesterday we joined over 1,100 blogs for a Bloggers Day of Silence (above right) to acknowledge the devastation that Japan continues to face, and to raise money for ShelterBox as part of For Japan With Love.  As of this morning, For Japan With Love has raised nearly $50,000 - ten times the original goal!  You can still donate to this incredible cause through the end of the month by clicking here.

I also designed a limited edition art print (above left) to honor and raise funds for both humans and animals affected by the disaster.  This archival art print sells for $20 in the Bubby & Bean Etsy shop, with 100% of the profits from its sales being donated to Animal Refuge Kansai and the Red Cross.

It's been wonderful to see so many in the art, fashion, design and blogging communities coming together to help raise funds and awareness for such a horrific tragedy. 


  1. I'm way too in love with the photography in Free People, Anthro & the like. The last Anthro catalog was like a coffee table book as opposed to a sales guide. I haven't gotten the free people one, but it looks dreamy, and I'm not ashamed of my love!

  2. That Scotch Naturals nail polish is gorgeous! I'm always looking for new nail polish...

  3. I love neutrals! What a cool photo of that old building. I love saturday morning daydreams! :-)

    I hope Bubby feels better today so you can have a little getaway to celebrate with your boy.


  4. have a fun trip! i hope your pooch is alright :)

    beautiful inspiration as always!

  5. The Scotch varnish shades--I want them!

  6. Wow those are awesome! I love the baskets.
