for starters, i'm definitely craving more mornings like this.
i keep obsessing over this j.crew dress; what a perfectly easy summer staple.
i've graduated from the diaper bag (finally!) but it turns out, park trips still require a ton of packing. the madewell transport tote would make carting all that gear look effortless and stylish.
thanks to sarah sherman samuel, i'm really thinking i need a touch of marble in my life. (i first found her amazing insta-feed here; see if you can spot my cameo- such a pinch me moment!)
a marble pastry board would do the trick. this one is from williams-sonoma, and an equally lovely one (for a much lovelier price) is at sur la table.
it seems like everyone uses these candles, from diptyque, to style. once i looked them up and saw the price, i knew why. if i decide to splurge on this candle, it will for sure be making several appearances. luckily, laura at bright and beautiful blog has a way to make them last forever.
on the subject of french things, i'm really craving a little jaunt to paris, like natalia took. i mean, as long as i'm enjoying relaxing mornings over croissants and coffee, it just seems like i should be doing it there. don't you think?
on the home front, i'm craving white walls. i've mentioned this before, and it's grown from a burgeoning obsession to a full-blown crusade. our painter is coming in (hopefully) three weeks to do the office, and i'm having him do the family room at the same time. i can't wait!
i've recently realized that said office probably needs a rug, so this one rounds out my wish list. i can just picture myself sitting at my desk with this squishy softness under my toes!
sadly, now that mother's day is over and my anniversary isn't for several months, i don't have much chance of most of this wishlist being fulfilled anytime soon. but that's actually ok. putting them on the blog is cathartic. it makes me feel like i have them. ha, well, sort of. i still for sure need the paint. and the candle. and the rug... :)
what's on your list of summer must-haves?
