Being the daydreamer that I am, I can’t help imagining what kind of room I would design if I had a little boy. I’m trying hard not to analyze this for the moment. If I were to have a little boy Blue, Finn or River (uh oh, names picked out??), then this is the room I would create for my little prince.
There’s this huge explosion of bell bottoms right now all over the web! The word on the street is that they’re coming back. Oh…I had no idea they had gone away?? I’m not a big fan of “this is the trend now, so it’s o.k now”. If you love a style, then wear it. Don’t wait for trends to tell you it’s o.k. Don’t pack great styles away just because they’re not “IN” anymore…if you like something, enjoy it.
FYI: These days they’re calling Bell Bottoms, “Flare’s”.

I have loved bell bottoms for almost forever. I bought my first pair when I was sixteen while on vacation with my family in South Beach, Florida. We used to travel to Miami during the winters to get away from the brutal freezing temps of Chicago. I found my beloved bell bottoms in a thrift store on Washington Ave. I think they were actually men’s jeans; they were low waisted and fit perfect. I felt they were reborn just for me. Religiously I wore these washed out denims; I loved them! Come the time I needed to find an agency in Miami to represent me, my bell bottoms were my interview attire. That and a cropped top with a chunky wood wedge. Yep, this momma wore cropped tops (lol). I signed with Next Models Inc. and the rest is history. Over the years I continued to buy bell bottoms whenever they were “IN” again; because this is when the new colors and styles were available. Out of all my many pairs of jeans, this style is my favorite.
Great jeans are great jeans. Mine always have a story, as I’m sure yours do too.

Happy Friday all! I am super excited that my new mint faux fur from Zara came in the mail. I love love love the color! I have a thing for pastels, especially with the gloomy weather out here in Chicago today. I’ve been wearing this blue number around the house off and on with my high-waisted bell bottom jeans, while I edit some pics and scan the web for inspiration. Nothing wrong with feeling fabulous at home right – haha!
Here are a few things I’m loving on the web right now:
1. While I debate yet again if we should wallpaper the guest bathroom – I’m leaning towards yes.
2. So hungry gazing at this smoothy bowl! It’s so very pretty.
3. Love this interview and everything about this couple’s home…She’s a stylist and designer and he’s a photographer, so you know it’s a great space.
