While Sipping Hot Chocolate.....

While sipping hot chocolate this afternoon....I fell in love.

I was browsing through a couple of catalogs and came across some things that I just....well....love.


I adore this outfit....the gray sweater....the thin belt....the boots....it's perfect....this is how I see myself dressing when I visit Ireland (a girl can dream right?).

What can I say about this outfit....except that I love it. The velvet blazer, the ruffled top, the scarf...it's just beautiful.


And this....I love this. The creamy white linens, the little wood bench, the unadorned window....and the bed platform....I so love that.


All the while....drooling over the outfits and bed....sipping my hot chocolate....I was thinking....I so need some cute mugs....because in my head, cute mugs make for tastier hot chocolate....I came across these beauties....aren't they perfect....I think so. I really think these mugs....with their french farmhouse good looks....would definitely make my hot chocolate tastier....don't you agree?

  2. A girl can never have too many grey sweaters - ask my wardrobe! They`re in abundance in the UK so wait until you get here to buy one?

  3. grey is my favorite...favorite sweater color! love it all!

    hey, btw...i was reading an older post of your's last nite about slipcovering your couch and what kind of fabric did use to make it? i'm thinking about doing the same thing to my couch...and it's not a sectional, so it might be easier. maybe??

  10. I completely agree - pretty mugs make for tastier cocoa.

    Also, if you like that look (top), I just came from seeing the new Harry Potter (I know...) and it's FULL of similar looks. They're in friggid, damp weather constantly and it's just full of these grey knits and layered comfy sweaters. Also, there are some fabulous vintage pieces in the sets!

  19. I have always liked the crockery you can find at Anthropologie. The style, so country quaint and delicate.

    Now I've got a craving for some hot chocolate and a catalog...

    Hugs,
