Greatest Jeans on Earth

A lot of you have asked what I think of my new Kate Spade Broome Street Jeans so I thought I’d take a moment to g-u-s-h.  First off, I kind of despise jean shopping.  I often have trouble finding the right fit, let alone the length, wash and stretch.  Well, these new jeans are a god send!  They’re a chic dark wash (meaning I can wear them from day to night) and by some miracle, fit like a glove!  The skinny cut is universally flattering thanks to a lot of stretch and the charming ankle length makes me feel like Audrey Hepburn every time I slip them on.  Oh and did I mention the interior stitching is pink and looks ridiculously cute peeking out when you cuff them with heels…?  Best of all, these lovelies will never go out of style, just ask Audrey : )

A special thanks to Kate Spade for my new duds—this neo-trad wears them proudly.

The Book Club is Now in Session

Morning loves!  I thought I’d go ahead and open the book club now for people to come and go with their comments throughout the weekend.  I’m dying to know what you thought of Jane and her adventures!  Did you admire her, despise her, or perhaps at times relate to her?  I’ll approve comments as quickly as possible.  What did you think?

UPDATE: The next book club book will be F.Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night.  We’ll discuss it two weeks from yesterday, Thursday November 11!

Mrs. Monogram

Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. continually blows me away with her beautiful, whimsical designs and these new floral monogram cards are no exception.  They would make the perfect stocking stuffers or hostess gifts!  I personally want ten boxes of the “K” and ten of the “A”—can you blame me?  Oh and I finally picked up five of the pug cards at Anthropologie today.  They are SO cute in person—I can’t wait to frame one for our apartment!
