friday finds {pattern love}

By now you are all well aware, I love a good collaboration. Anytime a designer produces pieces at an affordable price point I am all over it. DVF has done it again, this time with Roxy. Pairing up for a lovely little swimwear collection. Diane knows bold prints better than anyone else, and these prints are perfect for days spent in the sunshine. How cute are the little bags as well, the smaller ones are perfect to pack your swimsuits in.

lately

October has been a whirlwind of a month and I still have a few more busy days ahead. From weddings and celebrations to festivals and updates around the house. I can certainly say I am looking forward to a little down time come November.

friday finds {purchased}

{Oscar de la Renta $2,150}
{Old Navy $24.94}

 

I can’t help myself lately, I’ve been all about polka dots and stripes. I have been eyeing several polka dot sweaters for the fall and recently came across this gem from Old Navy {ordered it today actually} and at a price much less than the ones I have been seeing!

 

friday finds {illustrated}

Two things I love:

1. fashion illustrations {seen here and here}  
2. calendars {seen here}

And this is the perfect combination of both {by Inslee By Design}! And I love that the calendar can be repurposed {similar to what I did here}. I can’t believe 2013 calendars are already coming out, where does the time go!
