i'm liking these lots.
i think we might all be in need of a little beach getaway. you agree, right? who's made the trip to these islands before? i love beach trips — where doing nothing is the only thing on the to-do list.
the more photos i see, the more convinced i need to make it happen. take a look at that water. i thought these fuchsia tones would complement those blue-greens nicely.
have a perfect weekend, friends.

hello! i am still alive. you'll be glad to know that i am done moving. it was just up the street, but i'll tell you what... it was awful. really, really awful.
after going through SO MUCH stuff, i'm certain that this greedy girl has to tone it down and keep it simple.
and the weight! don't even get me started about how awful it was to walk up and down my stairs, carrying boxes and furniture, with an extra 60 pounds on me. again: really, really awful.
so, i kind of can't wait to streamline my belongings — and my body, too. who knew a move could be such a wake-up call?
until i get back into the swing of things, i thought i'd leave you with something pretty and simple. i'll be back friday for getaway girl and hopefully a little more. fingers crossed!
p.s. i kind of love you all for sticking with me these past couple weeks. really.

this was another busy week, friends, but soon things will settle down for the summer, i hope. wishing everyone a happy memorial day weekend.

i think the most recent lookbook by ruche might be the most magical i've seen in a long time. take a look for yourself if you haven't already. it reminds me of 'the notebook' — complete with the handsome redford type.
how devastated am i, though, that this is out of stock... i'm hoping they'll get some more in because i'm pretty sure i was born to wear it.

it's been one of those weeks, if you couldn't tell. i've had a nonstop headache that still won't quit, and work's been insano. i suppose i can mostly thank the thunder for the busy-at-work part — i won't complain about that. either way, the mix of everything and nothing at all has left my brain fried for the week. clearly, to the point of not making sense.
so, i'll leave this week's getaway up to you guys. where do you want to go? where do you see this outfit? any requests for future getaway girls? just drop me a line!

i hope everyone has a nice, relaxing weekend... i'm looking forward to recharging without feeling the guilt of not blogging, which has happened every day this week. then, come monday, i'll have my a-game back.

why memphis? to watch the thunder wrap up this series, of course! go oklahoma city!
is anyone else paying attention to the nba playoffs? who are you rooting for? it's ok if it's not the thunder. i'll understand.

so, i couldn't help it. had to have the zig-zag one. i am the worst saver ever. having money in my paypal is like having a hole in my pocket.
but how could i resist?
These totes are limited edition - once the fabric (sheet, curtain, tablecloth) is gone there is no way for us to replace it. ... Scout & Catalogue is heavily influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico. We strive to make pieces that remind you of afternoons at secret beaches, sun kissed skin, and all day siestas.
yes, i'll take that, thanks. hurry, mailman, hurry.
i've been holding out on y'all for a couple weeks now, waiting to introduce one of greedy girl's newest sponsors. it's mainly because i've been going back and forth over whether i need that really, really amazing sterling cuff, and i didn't want to introduce any competition while it was under consideration. but, alas, i'll share my greedy little secret:
jean jean vintage.
i'm kind of lazy when it comes to vintage anything. i'm not the digging type. i like to have a special selection curated for me. something nice and clean and organized.
so, that's where jean jean vintage comes in. the shop's collection ranges from the intricate to the obscure to the strange — in a good way, of course.
in addition to having an uncanny talent for spotting the diamonds in the rough, shop owner duff enjoys "cleaning things with tiny brushes." so see? she wants to do the dirty work for you.
also? her mission is pretty admirable:
"i'm trying to rescue pretty necklaces, rings, earrings and other baubles from the dusty antique malls and attics of the midwest and get them to new, happy homes where they can live for another 20, 40, 80 years."
thank you, jean jean!
