i'm thinking we all need to treat ourselves to something springy... maybe something for your closet? or something for your home?
i've had my eye on these marais espadrilles for a while...
and now, the very kind KIND boutique is offering you greedy girls 25 percent off non-sale items through the end of the month. that is kind, right? just enter GREEDYGIRL.
thank you, erin!

in the summer, i'm strangely drawn to clothes that look like things i would have worn when i was six. summer also makes me want to soak my hair in chlorine water and stain my lips with popsicles.
i'm pretty sure i had, in some incarnation, these looks back then.
i'm loving this new print from jen oaks featuring oklahoma's animals.
thanks to holly for sending the link my way.
read more about it here.
(also, extra points for jen, who included in the print's description where to get frames to fit... not ikea, thankfully for us oklahomans.)

just wanted to wish everyone a happy weekend... sorry posting's been sporadic. it's been one of those weeks.
if you haven't already, head over to the goodie life. kate was kind of enough to invite me to join her what's on your nightstand? series. she said really, really nice things about me. i'm blushing just thinking about it.
once you get done reading all about me, take some time to peruse. there are a lot of pretty things happening over there with that kate.
this is one of those really unfortunate moments when i wish i could pull anything off. or, even halfway pull anything off.
maybe you could rock this dress for me? (i'll mention it's $82, down from $300something. just saying.)
also, those tights. THOSE TIGHTS.

i was BEYOND honored to be asked by anne to participate in her BOARDING PASS series. i've always loved and looked forward to reading of others' journeys. and now i'm in on the action!
hop on over there and check it out!

i promise i'll get over this rope thing soon. in the meantime, here's another. (and how about that brass cord necklace?)
p.s. have i mentioned before how much i envy the team behind habitat shoe boutique? by team, i mean husband and wife. i want to be them when i grow up. (plus, they're in kansas city. and you know i love kansas city.)

hooray! it's time for the gap give and get event. big thanks to carol for sending me an invite.
and now, i share it with y'all: 30 percent off at gap, gap outlet, old navy, banana republic and banana republic factory stores. AND 5 percent of your purchase goes to world wildlife fund (good choice, carol).
want to do good for another organization? just sign up here.
i'm supposed to be on a spending hiatus, but how can i resist an opportunity to do good?
[UPDATE: a little birdie (thanks, surya!) has informed me that the discount is also good on piperlime! woot!]
i die a little inside every time i realize i'll never drop $200 on a scarf. because i really, really would love to have one of these from virginia johnson.
[UPDATE: big thanks to michelle of pretty mommy for offering 10 percent off at her shop. go! go now! for me! just enter SPRINGFEVER at checkout. thanks, michelle!]
somehow more than a year has passed since i last blogged about locher's. so how happy was i to discover that mlle. locher has been hard at work on bags? really happy.
i think she just might have had me in mind when she came up with this one. my thoughts exactly!
i even love it so much, i can get past the fact its isn't apostrophed.
... and that money is capitalized.
... and that there is a comma between the two thoughts.
damn it. i want it bad, don't i?
i know, i know. a day late. but it would have been too late anyway. this pretty necklace is one-of-a-kind. and, it's already gone.
you really want it now, don't you? sorry. i had to make you feel the same pain.
maybe if wen finds another lucky horseshoe, she'll think of us...
green is my absolute favorite color, but i don't own a single green thing. or, if i do, i can count them on one hand. maybe a couple pairs of shoes and a few accessories, but no clothes. but this silk pintuck dress? i wish i could sport it today...
