My Favorite Oscar Gowns


This pretty mint pastel was on the top of my list.  Love all of the detailing on top and the open back.


Simple Oscar dress in purple. Love it!



What I love most about this dress is the COLOR!!! That's probably the most beautiful red I've ever seen!


I know this is super bright, but I love the yellow and the gorgeous shape of this dress!  It probably would have looked prettier in all yellow.

Well there you have it, my thoughts on the dresses for last night's Academy Awards!

Happy Monday!

Pops of Yellow...

Pinned Image

With the time change around the corner and spring ready to flourish in all it's glory, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight a few chic rooms that have pops of yellow.  Something about yellow makes me smile...Happy Sunday!

*****One more thing I wanted to share is that yesterday my son had a jazz competition (he plays the sax) and his jazz band earned 3 superiors for their performance! They were so incredible, I cannot even begin to describe how perfect they sounded! I am so proud and happy for his school, the band teacher and all of the kids who performed to the best of their ability! God bless them all! I wish I could play music on my blog, so that all of you can hear how well they played!  Now...today we have two baseball practices, one baseball game, Race for the Cure walk-a-thon for three hours, travel team picnic, baseball function tonight and my older son is working on a paper for his AP English class that's a tremendous amount of pages long! ....let's just say, I'm having a few cups of coffee today! Have a great Saturday and I want to thank all of you for stopping by my blog! You really make my day extra special!

XO,

It's Friday and Giveaway!

Pinned Image

Good morning and happy Friday to you! My husband and I went on a quick dinner date last night to a local Mexican restaurant and discussed all of the things that will be keeping us busy the next few days. Our boys have about 3-4 activites each day this weekend and we agreed to just enjoy every minute of it! They are growing older by the day and we really don't want to miss out on our blessings.  So with that, I hope that you enjoy your weekend whether it's going to be busy for you or not...:)


You may know by now, I always look forward to my Friday morning coffee with my girls at work...it never fails... everytime we walk in the door we each sigh with relief that we're together and that it's Friday!


I also wanted to remind everyone that my giveaway ends today!  I will be announcing the winner late, late this evening! Have a great Friday!

XO,
Desiree'

Tory Burch's Southhampton Home


Happy Wednesday! Yeah, Friday is almost here and you know me...I'm always looking forward to my weekends!  Another fun note today is that  we all get to peek into Tory Burch's Southampton home that she shares with her three boys.  I think that Vogue did a beautiful job capturing this creative designer's estate.  I'll let the photos speak for themselves...

Sicilian dining al fresco...

Rustic Italian Charger

Williams Sonoma always pulls through for us coastal lovers when warmer weather is about to arrive! I just received my new catalog in the mail today and love the Sicilian al fresco dining inspiration that they styled for spring!  I'm going to have to add a few of their new dishes to my outdoor entertaining collection.

Reef...Bella Costas


I always enjoy incorporating artisan fabrics in my tropical weather wardrobe and now Reef has designed shoes that are made of fabric from Guatemala that I'm absolutely crazy about.  They're called Bella Costas and retail for $54.  I think they'll be a perfect addition to my spring and summer outfits.

Watch this informational video below about how this collaboration was developed between the artisans and Reef.
