Inspiring Spaces- Hamptons Edition


How incredible is this house in the Hamptons?  I can imagine spending my Summer evenings hosting fabulous dinner parties around that dining room table and taking long soaks in that incredible tub!  It’s a house where one could live a very sophisticated and adult life, no?  A life that maybe involves a lot of fine wine, historical novel reading and a deep appreciation for the arts.  Am I right?!  Here’s to a rich fantasy life… xx- Sarah {Images via }

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta


Have I told you about my love of heirloom tomatoes and how I dream of someday moving to Greece (or Italy) and spending my days growing the most luscious varieties of tomatoes?  That smell that your fingers takes on when you pluck one from a plant- it’s my favorite!  It’s the epitome of Summer for me, that smell, and a juicy bite into a warm, fresh tomato.  I always think I can taste the sun and the air and the earth.  They’re heavenly.  And I prefer to eat them with the simplest preparation, like these sweet little bruschetta!  I hope you love as much as I do.  xx- Sarah

Elizabeth and James Dress Goodness


I’ve had this adorable Elizabeth and James dress for a few  months and I wear it nonstop (on casual days with these booties or these sandals).  I wore it to meetings in NY a couple of months ago and had my most embarrassing moment of 2014 when, after getting out of a cab, it somehow got caught up in my jacket exposing my bum to the entire city on a massively busy street corner.  WHOOPS!  And, WHY DID I NOT FEEL THE DRAFT?!  It happens to the best of us?  Please tell me it does!  And many thanks to the kind girl who came up to let me know I was flashing, I owe you a  big one.  xx- Sarah

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend and were able to soak up tons of Summer goodness!  It’s been stormy here in Palm Springs all weekend, which is such a treat since the weather here is consistently sunny.   I love a good Summer thunderstorm like nothing else!  But that is neither here nor there….I’m really here today to share this home of Minneapolis stylist Madelynn Hackwith Furlong!  I’m in love with it’s brick wall, neutral color palette and wide array of textiles (without even mentioning the lovely pup!).  It’s beautiful, isn’t it?!  Hope you adore too.  xx- Sarah
