Saturday Morning Daydreams

Kate Moss green dress
The Longchamp bag is definitely swoon-worthy, but it's this dress that wins in my book.  Sigh.  

green Pyrex bowl
I'm thinking that these gorgeous, muted bowls would look awfully nice in my Pyrex collection.

Vogue February 1961
How incredible is this vintage Vogue cover (February, 1961) featuring Wilhelmina Cooper?

green cabinets
Loving the pop of color that the cabinets bring to this kitchen

green bicycle basket
A bicycle basket inspired by traditional crocheted tablecloths?
Yes, please. 

There's something kind of amazing about this shimmery, vibrantly bold eye shadow

vintage suitcase table
Vintage suitcase + wooden legs = really rad table.

One of my favorite summertime treats: green tea icecream

Maybe it's all the green goodness growing in my little container garden (see this week's post on that right here), or the fact that everything outside just seems the greenest in July, or just that I've always been fond of this particular color.  Whatever the reason, on this Saturday morning, I am daydreaming of all things green.  Green is refreshing.  It's the color of life and renewal.  It contains the perfect balance of warm (yellow) and cool (blue) undertones.  It possesses a very comforting, reassuring ambiance.  Green is relaxing.  And pretty.  And today, I'm feeling especially inspired by it.  I hope all of this green-filled goodness brings some inspiration to your weekend too. 

What are your plans this weekend?  Everything is so beautiful outside right now, and I'm thinking it would be a great time to dust off the trusty Holga and snap some good old fashioned film photographs.

  4. beautiful. green is my favorite color so that was awesome. if only i had a bike so i could get the bike basket.

  5. Green is one of my favorite colors. The kitchen is killer. So bold, yet so simple. And yes, that dress rocks. Although since I'm in TX and have been drowning in 100 degree days for two months, it makes me hot just looking at it.

  7. I needed a little green... it's been so hot here that everything is pretty much brown! I've never had green tea ice cream, but it looks delicious :)
