i'm not a sporty person. i don't care one bit about football. and i only tolerate baseball because i like hot dogs and beer, and ice cream in little plastic hats, and 'a league of their own.'
but the oklahoma city thunder? i am a fan, y'all. a real sports fan. i read sports stories. and watch games. five-years-ago caroline would have scoffed at the idea. straight-up scoffed at it.
but here i am, pretend-getting away to los angeles for games 3 and 4 against the lakers. that's a true fan, guys.
thunder up—yeah, we really do say that here in okc—and have a winning weekend, friends.

i've long admired kate ruggiero's gypsy line of lovely underthings. her collection (now expanded to include swimwear) is handmade in hawaii in what i like to imagine is a perfect little beach hut workshop—because that's what hawaiian dreams are made of, yeah?
and, like in seasons past, photographer extraordinaire daeja fallas has captured the magic that is gypsy in the dreamiest way.
and, as usual, i can't stop looking at the beautiful shots, wishing i owned every piece and cursing the fact that i don't have a model's butt.

just checking in to present to you three lovely ladies, in three incredible blazers, on this third day of the week.
1. maison scotch ... 2. thakoon ... 3. pencey standard
i've been in a bit of a rut lately. can anyone recommend any new up-and-coming designers they're loving? or maybe you've got an artsy friend who's doing something amazing? please let me know. i need some inspiration!

happy quatro de mayo, friends! and happy may 1, 2 and 3 as well—i've been trying to keep away from the computer this week in an effort to get some other stuff done (i didn't).
you haven't missed much, but getaway girl did take a little trip over on jillian's cornflake dreams. istanbul! can you imagine? you should go check it out and take a little fantasy trip to turkey with me.
over at cornflake dreams, you'll find this pretty embroidered top. but i'll be straight with you: i'll take any of the others, as well.
i love the little girl versions, too... especially this one. i want it in my size!
