Make your weekend trip feel like a vacation - start with the getting to your destination because you know the saying, "the journey is the destination". So, make sure your enjoying the yourself the whole way. A few tips for luxurious plane travel - Clinique Moisture Surge face spray is perfect for fighting high altitude dry air. Make yourself comfortable and warm, even in coach, with a soft blanket and eye mask set, like this cashmere set from Ralph Lauren. And everyone knows yellow makes people smile so choose this brightly hued Globe-Trotter suitcase from JCrew next time you need to pack and go!
I have a few weddings coming up over the next year (one this weekend, actually, back home in New England) that I am very particularly excited for. As I look to help my friends plan their perfect days, I can't help but always come back to the beautiful wedding and party collections at JCrew. Their dresses for both the bride and her guests are always stunningly simple with classic and modern styles. The dresses are made of practical yet luxurious materials - high-fashion design offered at surprisingly affordable prices. Check out JCrew's new Bridal Boutique on Madison Avenue in New York; I am sure to pop my head in next time I am in the city simply to revel at the beautiful interior of the space.

Hi there, though I am not 100% in support of Target these days, this blog is not about politics, it's about design. Poketo and John Derian just so happen to be two high scale designers joining with Target to make there product accessible to everyone. Poketo designs many beautiful products from clothing to lifestyle accessories. For Target the collection will include totes, umbrellas, graphic luggage tags, and other small tokens of pleasure.
While John Derian is most famous for his whimsical decoupage glass plates and trays he is also widely known for his furniture, stationary and beautifully curated collection of home goods. His Target collection will include an array of stationary and and home decor products including patterned fiberboard storage totes, desk calendars, and melamine trays that mimic Derian's original decoupage works.
Poketo is said to hit Target stores nation wide August 10th. John Derian will grace the stores beginning September 7th.

Or at least pretend that we have, with these adorable artworks and safety guides from Campfire Chic. My favorites are the Campfire Cocoa cross stitch, Light the Way cross stitch, all of the vintage Sequoia guide books, and the Summer Lovin' embroidery patters and fonts (which are just too sweet for words)! Check out the full collection here.
