What I’m {Catching Up On} Right Now

BY ALEX

I’m not a scrapbooker, a photo album organizer, or even very good about printing out my digital pictures, but I am an obsessive Picassa user and photo backer-upper.

Pinterest Wednesdays: Brights and Neons

BY ALEX

I am admittedly a basics girl. Most of the colors in my wardrobe range from gray to black with a bit of white thrown in. Lately though, with fall fast approaching and the promise of many cloudy days and early nights ahead, I am thinking that the neon trend might be on to something. Thought I am not a complete bright colors virgin (I have what my mother has deemed a “hunter’s orange” Kate Spade bag that I haul everywhere) I still approach it sparingly. Below are a few of my pinterest favorites that take bright colors and crazy combinations to the next level.
