LAST WEEK

Each one of these bubbles contains content I meant to post this past Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. With a trip to New Orleans on the books for that Thursday, I had laid most everything out and was planning to put it all on autopilot (I am a terribly unprofessional blogger so the thought of having three days ready to go is pretty awesome in my world.)

Needless to say, none of the posts got off the ground. And If anybody else had east coast travel plans that included some air time you probably know why.  After dealing with cancellations and re-bookings for 2 days we finally had to push the trip back to this coming Thursday. With the trip pushed back a week we were able to enjoy a few silver linings with flight rescheduling: book drinks with another friend, secure a restaurant that was having a private party, and take a little more time to plan some antique shop stops. Though I say this with fingers crossed, I really cannot wait for Thursday. Our reason for making the trip is actually two fold.  To spend a fun long weekend, but also to take a second look at Tulane as a possibility for Nelson’s 3-years residency program. With match day coming up this March, we are getting really excited to submit a rank list. My mind keeps racing at the thought of 3 years in Nola after 4 years in Charleston? As far as southern cities go, you can’t really beat it. But before I start counting my chickens… lets recap

 LAST WEEK

CHARLIE FERRER HAS THE SHORTEST COMMUTE IN MANHATTAN 

He merged his showroom with his one-bedroom studio apartment

SARAH LEDERMAN PROVIDES SOURCE FOR LONG TIME ART MYSTERY

Thank you Mrs. Sarah! So I have seen Christian Brechneff‘s work a few time on Pinterest and could never seem to find the source. If the sketchy botanicals weren’t enough, he had to frame them in the prettiest shade of blue. swoon.

COURTNEY TROP MAKES A CASE FOR ROCKER CHIC

Though her style is far edgier than mine, she makes me want to mix mine up a little. Love the peach fur.

TINK + TIGER LOOKBOOK DOUBLES AS A DAY DREAM MANUAL

This line of sleepwear is perfection. The piping, the stripes, the touch… followed by the lookbook. Charleston may be the only city where pajamas somehow make sense on her streets. My favorite is the amelia shirtdress.

J.CREW MADE ME A CAT PERSON (FOR A DAY)

No offense to the felines but I am all for the dog. Though that didn’t stop me from snagging this cat print top from J.Crew. love.

LOEFFLER RANDALL TUGS AT HEARTSTRINGS

Every season. Every time. She wins. And Spring 2014 is no exception. The Hopie Stacked heel is my favorite.

RONAN & ERWAN BOUROULLEC LEGITIMIZE MY COFFEE TABLE

or it will. Its on the way to me now! Their body of work really is a little beyond.

BETSY EBY LIGHTS PAINT AND CANVAS ON FIRE

I won’t spoil the surprise but read about her process. It is so masterful. Her work gets added to my “someday” file.

WEEK AT A GLANCE



gadabout_weekataglance_feb11-15

I have decided to misrepresent my week a little bit here. If I were truthful, about half of this post would be work related and boring but who wants to read about me whine. SO – I have pulled out the few gems (which actually are gems) from my work week to give you a idea of what I have been up to.


MONDAY // TUESDAY • It was rainy and the wind had that sort of scary quality about it that makes me look cautiously at my window (you know what I mean – the whistle noise). I took this as a sign I needed to stay put in my studio. So I spent the day cranking out some graphic work, wishing the weather would be what it was a week ago when I was wearing sandals like the adorable ones above.

WEDNESDAY // I logged a lot of studio time and found my new favorite everyday earrings. I love the little art deco, almost edgy vibe.

THURSDAY • I enjoyed a lovely trip to the office of STITCH Design Co, to discuss printing some fun projects with them (yeah!). I have major respect for those girls, professionally and personally, and their office and press shop is a graphic designers dream. Nestled in downtown Charleston, it’s a little building full of natural light, incredible inspiration boards, and like 7 mac computers. They also get bonus points for being a few blocks down from Sugar Bakeshop (my favorite cupcake shop you see me frequent on instagram). I left feeling really inspired which is something I have been really needing lately.

Then that night, Nelson and I went to one of our favorite little neighborhood spots called Two Burroughs Larder for Valentines Day. It’s this great little hipster spot (I use the word hipster lightly) that has a great wine list and delicious local food. I was thrilled to go somewhere easy. Not that I dont like super fancy restaurants, I love them, but I much prefer going somewhere easy on a night everywhere else is packed. Much better for conversation. I like to save the special restaurants for the random Tuesday night when you need a touch of glam.

FRIDAY // Today I have a coffee date with the photographer/blogger combo Olivia Rae James at Black Tap to discuss snapping some shots of me for my new creative site. Her work has this lovely soft etherial quality that I love so much. You really see the person through her lens. So heres hoping that she likes me enough to deal with my photo awkwardness.

Hope everyone had a good work week and incredible weekend plans! Love to hear about them!
