Picnic Ale

Picnic Ale
Cole and I had a lovely little picnic on Saturday afternoon! I've been dying for months to wear my Matilda saddle shoes, but the weather has been too awful to risk ruining them. It was so nice to be able to finally wear them out and about. They make me smile from ear to ear every time I look at them.

Cole, Wellie, Pip and I are leaving this Thursday for St. Paul!!! I'm super excited but very stressed. Moving is the worst. And not to worry, you'll have lots of lovely posts to read while I'm gone!

Happy Memorial Day!

Millicent on the Boardwalk

Millicent on the Boardwalk
I've been dying to do a bicycle post ever since Millie and I were featured on Ivy Style! The weather has finally turned spring-like which means plenty of opportunities for bike rides. I'm still deciding on which bicycle I'll be buying when we move, but I can't wait for something a little quicker and more new. Millie's from the late sixties/early seventies and rides a little bumpy and slow. Once I get my new bike, I plan on taking Millie in for a good tune up!

Isn't this dress so lovely. I've been really embracing neutral shades this year and, being that I used to only really wear black and navy blue, I'm quite proud of myself! Breaking out of my safety zone is never easy, but I have to say that I'm really loving the new lighter me! :o

Sponsor Spotlight: Maison Orion

Maison Orion
MAISON ORION is a multifaceted design studio based in Los Angeles, California. While primarily engaged in the design of buildings, our focus is rather on questions of life and what qualities make for a graceful and uplifting habitat for human beings. I think of fashion as a kind of portable micro-architecture; the clothes we wear and the accessories we choose to accompany us are the “shelter” we dwell in as we navigate the world. From architecture we expect to be comforted physically, emotionally and psychologically, which sounds just like my qualifications for a good pair of shoes! We celebrate all aspects of living well and design buildings that support the daily habits and rituals that people do in order to make home in the world.

"I was quoted as saying I like the smell of a man’s sweat but it was taken out of context – the fact is I like the smell of life – of earth and dust and sweat and horses." Tom Ford

Off to my birthday party!!!!

Happy Saturday!

Friday I'm in love

Friday I'm in love
I've been wanting to show you this pretty dress for ages, but the weather wasn't cooperating at all! The very sweet Gracie from DameJolie picked out this dress for me and I don't think it could be more perfect! I love it's big collar, ditsy floral print, and belted waist! I just know I'll be wearing it all spring/summer long.

Tonight, Cole and I are going out with his family to belatedly celebrate his graduation from his master's program! I've said this before, but I'm so incredibly proud of Cole! He not only got into a top mba program but also did so very well in all his classes!! Soon he'll be starting his new job in Minneapolis and we'll be meeting all sorts of new and wonderful people. We're finalizing a house that we'll be renting in St. Paul. I'm so excited to move and get settled!

Tomorrow, my family is throwing me a 30th birthday party! Part of me really wants to ignore this milestone, but another part of me wants to enjoy this last hurray with all my loved ones. It is going to be really hard to say goodbye again.

Yours,
Maria Sig 2

Bicycle Birthday Wishes

beg bella bicycle
As my birthday approaches, I'm trying really hard to narrow down which bicycle I'll buy when we move. Millicent will forever be my favorite bicycle, but she's a senior citizen and can't handle long trips. So here are my top choices...

...
The Kate Spade and Adeline Adeline bicycle-

...
The Pashely Britannia in white or blue and the Poppy in light blue-

...
And the Beg Bella bicyle in chalk (which is also featured in the first photo)-

Of course, I want your opinions and feedback!!! This is such a tough (and expensive) decision!

Yours,

iPhone Photos: A Conversation with Charlaine Harris

A Conversation with Charlaine Harris
We had such a wonderful time last night, well probably me more so than Cole. It was so wonderful hearing one of my favorite authors chat about her books and answer so many questions. It was a huge turn out and Cole and I sat up in the balcony where we were pretty much alone. Charlaine is a truly charming southern lady that looks more like your mom or grandmother than the type of person you'd expect to write such graphic books. She signed every single copy and was even sweet enough to pose for pictures. I spent the long wait in line chatting with two girls in front of me. We were all Eric fans and agreed that this season better rock. When my turn finally arrived, Charlaine thanked me for coming out and I told her that "I love, love, love your books" and she said "Well, thank you so much". Even her young assistant was really sweet (she took the photo of me and blinking Charlaine) and complimented me on my glasses and said she is looking for a similar pair, I said they're Oliver Peoples and the best! Overall, it was amazing and I can't thank Cole enough for taking me and putting up with all the crazy women.

Before the event we ate at one of our favorite Ann Arbor restaurants, Jolly Pumpkin. If you ever go there, you must try the truffle fries! They are to die for.
