You are the sky.

Everything else – it’s just the weather.

An amazing thing happened this week: the clouds parted and blue skies prevailed. We've had a peek of them here and there, but for the most part it has been gray for the last few months, as if the world were in monochrome. You led me astray, Punxsutawney Phil.

While the weather is anything but pleasant, looking up to sunshine and brilliant blue skies has me feeling, well, better. Uplifted. Optimistic.

In the spirit of blue skies and good things to come, my loves this fine Thursday are sky-hued.


one// I am a sucker for a dress with a sash (my wedding dress had one and was also from J. Crew). This one is no exception Anita dress [J. Crew]  two// The geometry and contrast of this bowl is gorgeous and instantly caught my eye modern ceramic bowl [studioLORIER]  three// I am a sucker for blue glass and owls, so this vase is perfection navy glass owl vase [AWE]  four// I have mentioned this before, but colored pants scare me a little. These colored jeans, however, are quickly becoming my newest must-have. I never imagined mixing bold blues in one outfit, but I am loving the whole package Slim stretch jeans in Surf Blue [Garnet Hill]  five// blue topaz is one of my favorite gems, and this delicate ring is just lovely London blue topaz ring [ShopClementine]  six// This doormat is darling. I can't think of a better way to bring cheer to my front door bird doormat [Garnet Hill]  seven// I was instantly attracted to the lovely blue of this duvet cover. My whole room would radiate spring!  Fleur Duvet Cover [Crate and Barrel]

Linking up with Lish and Colleen for Loves on a Thursday!

    1. I haven't been cued into fashion trends much lately, but I have been noticing a lot of aqua and mint now that you mention it. This makes me happy... I love those colors.

    1. Isn't that the cutest little vase? I found it in a random catalog that showed up in my mailbox and was instantly smitten.
