Some of my favorite summertime images from The Sartorialist.

I had an amazing weekend full of swimming, waffles, music, video games (??) and hanging out with friends. I know in my last post I said holidays were really all about the fireworks... but that is not true, at least for this holiday. I went to the national memorial day concert over by the capitol building this weekend and became emotional thinking about all those that have served and are serving my country. So many Americans have had loved ones die or sustain injury. Thousands of families worry everyday for their husband, wife, mother, father, daughter, son, friends, etc. I am really grateful and appreciative of their sacrifice. See more photos here.

I hope you all are having a great memorial day! I recently came across French brand Maje's Fall 2011 lookbook - which was a collaboration with model Vanessa Traina (who happens to be Danielle Steel's daughter, which is kinda random). Very chic!

Currently loving Wayne Bremser's Flickr stream of photos taken in Rome. The second photo tricked me - the film and dress made me think it was a vintage photograph, perhaps taken in the 1950s... and then I saw the car. May your weekend be full of pleasant surprises and beautiful images!
I think this series of photographs called "Buses" by Andrew Miksys is so beautiful and melancholy. The photographs were taken in Lithuania between 2001-2009. It makes me a bit nostalgic for my old bus commute, and how I would see the same people day in and day out. It's its own little world, the bus is.

Not to get all apocalyptic on you guys... but with natural disasters, Mayan predictions and rapture talk, its just on my mind. And then I saw this awesome tumblr that asks people, "If your house was burning, what would you take with you?" It is sweet to see a person's most precious possessions, be it homemade berimbaus or a favorite record.
After going through the tumblr, I started thinking about what I would grab. Assuming Hunter is safe, like most, I would grab my computer. My wedding ring (also assuming the fire started while I was sleeping, since I don't sleep with it on). My phone. Boxes of old love letters, cards and photos. The moleskin I had in Spain. The mittens my mom made me. My glasses. Maybe my Fresh candle (its the little things, people). Quilts. My magenta coat. And would it be weird if I grabbed my knives? I have really great knives... What would you grab?

I really love these pretty, utilitarian "fleabags." The name reminds me of when my uncle took my siblings and I to the flea market for the first time. He told us that the flea market was a place where we could see the flea circus - fleas doing tricks and acrobatics and whatnot. And of course, my imagine went wild with that and I still think of flea acrobats when someone uses the term "flea market."

Okay, I might have to take back what I said about celebrity homes last week, because Jordana Brewster's home is amazing. I might have to pick up this month's InStyle just to see it up close. This is also a public shout out to Hunter, asking him to let me get a pink setee or sofa already (remember this one??!!). Just kidding. But, seriously...
