Winter Stripes

Is anyone else loving the fact that stripes have been highly coveted all year round?  I love the fact that I've been able to wear some of the stripey tops that I wore last the summer...clear through fall and now into winter.  Recently, I decided to treat myself to two new long sleeve stripe tops from here and here and I'm looking forward to wearing them with my new animal print scarves that I purchased on Black Friday.  Now, if only the temperature would just drop! 

Love these boots with this outfit!

Fur and stripe! Great look!

Need I say more? Sequin and stripes!

My Dream Cabin...

It's always been a dream of mine to design and decorate a cabin somewhere deep in the woods where my family can enjoy time together in the winter.   Below are some of the chic accessories that I would love to use in my dream cabin to make it cozy and elegant...

Christmas 2011 Inspiration...

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends!  Now, I'm looking forward to Christmas and these images show exactly how I love to decorate for the season.  The first thing I do, is purchase a few candles similar to the ones shown above and surround them with fresh pomegranate potpourri.

Pinecone candles are also some of my favorite accessories to use and I always make sure to add a few Christmas tree clippings.

I love this color and silver.

Tartan plaid is a must on my Christmas decorating list.  I have a similar table cloth that I use on my dining room table. 

Williams Sonoma winter berry kitchen candles are my favorite holiday scent.  Ummmmm.  I could burn them all day!

Happy Thanksgiving...

May you be blessed by family and friends today, as you gather around your table...

Aerin Lauder's East Hampton Thanksgiving...

Take a peek into how Aerin Lauder prepares her home for Thanksgiving with her family.  She says that she loves to mix velvets and animal prints in this home that she inherited from her grandmother about twelve years ago.  Her Wainscott, East Hampton home is the perfect setting for weekend jaunts to the country.  I have just only recently discovered how gorgeous her homes are...feel free to click here to see her lovely Aspen chalet.

What I'm Loving Now...

Looking Forward to Thanksgiving...

Woodland Turkey Dinnerware Collection

By now, I'm sure many of you have already made plans for Thanksgiving and are anticipating eating a wonderful dinner with your family.  My family and I are going to be spending it in the Keys and I'm looking forward to making a few dishes to bring down with us. One of the dishes, is this mac and cheese recipe that I found on the Williams Sonoma website.  It's truly amazing!  That's the actual name...Truly Amazing Mac and Cheese!  It has 3-4 different kind of cheeses and I'm sure not good for the waist...good thing I'll be running that weekend, because this girl can eat!  If you have any special recipes you would like to share please do so.  Thanks!

The Honeymoon Set of Twilight's Breaking Dawn

I just found out that the location for Edward and Bella's honeymoon destination, Isle Esme is at a home that I posted about back in March of 2011.  The film production director, Richard Sherman, searched for four weeks to find the ideal location for the fictional destination that was to be re-created by him and his team.  The Brazilian beach house that Sherman chose was designed by the architecture firm Bernardes + Jacobsen, which was featured in AD’s January 2011 issue. You can also see my feature on this home here.  Are you a Twilight fan?

Five Things

I forgot just how wonderful this time of the year can be...and getting beautiful inspiration for my blog is an added bonus.  The Aspen ski chalet above has to be my all time favorite winter home that I've come across since I started blogging 13 months ago.  I could easily post it everyday! Everything about it says chic! While the chalet made my favorite home of the week or season, there are also a few small things that have caught my eye lately...actually many things (but I...reluctantly will stick to only five for this post).  I hope you have a relaxing and fun filled Sunday, as you prepare for a great week ahead. Much love! xo, Desiree

Aerin Lauder's Aspen Ski Chalet

Aerin Lauder, is the granddaughter of the founder of Estee Lauder Cosmetics and will be launching her own company in the fall of 2012. Her new line will include beauty products, accessories, tabletop, and housewares.  I'm looking forward to seeing what she has to offer in her new line, because by the look of her ski home I can tell that she has exquisite taste.  I love how this chalet is kid friendly, cozy and simply luxurious. It's one of the most beautiful ski vacation homes I've ever seen!

Dreaming of an Aspen Ski Home

Living in the south has me dreaming of a chic vacation in Aspen, Colorado.  I've heard the shops and quaint restaurants are a must. Until then, I can appreciate these gorgeous views of a modern Aspen ski home that's perfect for a family get-a-way.  I would love to know what you think...Have you been to Aspen?

Looks I Love

Happy Saturday everyone!  I just got back from a beautiful ten mile run over a bridge in Key Biscayne. You can imagine how gorgeous it is to see the sunrise on a cool, fall day in Florida. The weather today is what I describe, as perfect!  My husband is off to coach my boys baseball team and I'm thinking about doing a little shopping.  I'm in need of a wardrobe spruce-up and there are so many great fall pieces out there right now.  If you are loving what I love, then you can find all of these looks right here.
