:: pretty 'round my neck ::

UO has a lot of really pretty, unique scarves right now. i picked up this one over the weekend. more than i would normally spend on a scarf, but with the pretty colors and mixture of printed fabric & lace, i just wasn't able to say no to her (she did speak to me).

some of my favorites from BHLDN. hard to narrow down the gowns - so many unique, vintage-inspired options, but these three are at the top of my list. the cover-ups are just plain gorgeous and might be my favorite part of the entire collection. i can't really envision many of the dresses as traditional bridesmaids dresses (as in, having 4-5 of these standing beside a bride & groom), but still like these particular ones for the color(s), shape and style.

my sister already posted her favorites, but which ones do the rest of you love, like or not?

positively adore the make-up, styling, accessories throughout the collection. be sure to check out the "flow player" under the gown images on the site - great feature!

:: the greatest...love ::

if i could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, i would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. if i had the gift of prophecy, and if i understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if i had such faith that i could move mountains, but didn’t love others, i would be nothing. if i gave everything i have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, i could boast about it; but if i didn’t love others, i would have gained nothing.

love is patient and kind. love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. it does not demand its own way. it is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. it does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. but love will last forever! now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! but when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.

when i was a child, i spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. but when i grew up, i put away childish things. now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. all that i know now is partial and incomplete, but then i will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

:: unveiling coming soon ::

only a few more days until the unveiling of anthropologie's wedding brand! so far i've successfully avoided photos from the collection, wanting to get the full force of loveliness on the 14th.

until tonight. i just happened upon a little spoiler - but i didn't look too long or too closely.

:: bathroom barn door #3 ::

i just came across another terrific take on this yellow bathroom barn door that i love so much - and it's even better than the last (and maybe better than the first). i cannot tell you how much i love the wall color, the headboard (made of the same wood as the door), the throw, the pillows. it's so warm and cozy, yet modern and non-fussy.

i want to give this room a big hug followed by a high five.

those are buffalo nickels scotch taped around the brim of the man's hat. would be a lot funnier if the $5 sign over his head was a 5¢ sign, instead.

:: super bowl of popcorn (ceiling) ::

if it weren't for the mess, i think popcorn ceiling removal would be my new hobby. strangely gratifying.

:: soup and a shirt ::

i was gathering some random stuff of my sister's to give back to her when i realized how great this loft shirt and trader joe's corn & red pepper soup look together. hard to tell in the picture, but the stripes are the exact color of the soup.
yep. soup and a shirt. no need to thank me.
