{taylor tomasi hill as photographed for the cut during the first day of NYFW}

in a world where street style has gotten to be an atrocious, howridiculouscanidress game, taylor tomasi hill continues to bring her a-game, proving that you can get dressed (and be successfully photographed) without looking like you got dressed in the dark.

sweater, warm coat, and sneakers. aka, what most other new yorkers are wearing in this weather. thank goodness SOMEONE isn’t trying too hard.

the new nate berkus fall ’13 collection for target is killing it. that is all. i’ve got my eye on that gorgeous gold candleholder, and a pair or two of those marble trays. oh mr. berkus, i love you, lots.

periwinkle play
this past weekend, after a decidedly gluttonous brunch at the smith, i took a detour into ricky’s in hopes of finding the perfect hot pink polish for my toes. i found it in essie’s bottle service, and while browsing the fun summer shades, i also fell in love with a periwinkle shade: the sweetly-named lapiz of luxury. all week, while zoning out in meetings, i’ve been staring at my fingernails like a total ditz, falling in love with my nail color and wondering to myself why i don’t own more items in the blueish purple shade of periwinkle.
as a young girl, my bedroom was all periwinkle – white walls with periwinkle trim, a deep blue carpet that sank down softly beneath my feet when i sleepwalked by way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. then there was my delightfully girly laura ashley bedding, which was floral with hints of, you guessed it, periwinkle. i may have outgrown the ditsy florals and upgraded to white sheets that are slightly more sophisticated, but looking at the pieces above, i think my closet and periwinkle could be seriously good friends.
the perfect pair
it’s safe to say i’m certifiably obsessed with glitter toms (and any form of glitter, really). so it’s no surprise that i jumped right on these multi-colored glitters, which hit the toms website earlier this week. they will pair perfectly with my favorite nail polish, deborah lippmann’s happy birthday. a match made in heaven, if i do say so myself. #glitterobsession
phoning it in
i recently splurged on an iphone 5, and with it, a new case. as any good shopper is wont to do, i did a bit of investigative research before picking my case (for those interested, i went with this one; it’s set to arrive any day now. wheeeee!), and almost went with the rifle and bond “hello hello” option above. i love anna rifle’s work – it’s always so whimsical and pretty. i was also tempted by the cat option above, but, at $77 at luisa via roma, it was beyond pricey. i love me some cute phone cases, and obviously, i love me some cats, but $77 for a phone case is ridiculous. also loving: the hot pink palm print, and of course, the hot pink polka dots.
but still…it was watermelons for the win.
