Yesterday J.Crew released their first arrivals for spring... and I'm not disappointed. Initially I meant for this post to include all parts J.Crew, but I was loving the jewelry so much that I thought these jewels deserved their own recognition. It's safe to say I want every piece in this collection and J.Crew continues to make some of the best and most stunning statement pieces I've seen. It's certainly an investment to purchase one of these pieces, but in my opinion, it's worth every penny. You win  again, J.Crew. You win again.

It wasn't too long ago that I posted about my latest jewelry obsession, Margaret Elizabeth. Well what do you know, yesterday the girl behind Margaret Elizabeth, Meg Galligan, was featured on The Everygirl (just another one of my absolute favorite websites), giving a tour of her gorgeous home in San Francisco. I swear I am not stalking her.... but she has really great taste and I couldn't help but share some of my favorite things in her perfect little San Fran apartment.

Well, I just like everything about this. From the large windows to the pillows to the rug she found on Ebay to the lemons and limes stored on the bar cart.... It's just really, really great.

My apartment wishlist: a stylish bar cart and well stocked bar and bookshelf to attractively display my coffee table books. 

This armoire is so perfect with the blue accenting. And I'm digging the rustic looking kitchen table.

I'm a sucker for white bedding and I love the navy trim and monogrammed pillows. That sunburst mirror? Also great.

I mean can we talk about this orange desk, the white lamp, the monogrammed tray? Everything about this is fabulous. I love it.

What a fun weekend. No doubt it was a bit of a lazy one - but still such a great time and I continue to feel so blessed for the friendships I have already made and those that are just beginning. Loving this place. Also thinking that given the poor quality of all these pictures, I should probably start taking pictures with a real camera :) 

Girls at a friend's house for dinner pre-bowling. Cheeseburgers in January? Sounds like a perfect dinner to me! 

 Decided to change up our Saturday night plans and go cosmic bowling ... it was the best! I was terrible and not very consistent, but hey, the last time I bowled was once during senior year! Definitely down to bowl again - such a fun night.

 Nothing ends the weekend better than a little frozen yogurt from Sweet CeCe's! My favorite creation at the moment is Cake Batter and Vanilla with waffle cone, heath bar, and coconut. Seriously delicious.

Happy Monday! Hope everyone has a great start to the week!

I feel like I get emails from Loft just about every. single. day. with some new sale, so many times I overlook it (I mean how many times can I get excited about the sale being 60% off?!) Today however, I got an email that actually passed through my filter. Everything - including new arrivals and full priced merchandise - is 50% off  in stores and online for TODAY only.

One of the things I love about Loft is that they have affordable wardrobe staples that you don't see everyone and their mom wearing (how I sometimes feel about J.Crew). I love them even more when they offer amazing deals like this one! Here are my picks:
