The Art of Getting By

 In the past few weeks I have not been able to wear much in my closet and recycling the few items I still manage to fit into has become cumbersome.  I decided rather than buying a plethora of cheap maternity clothing, I would invest in statement pieces that would be useful post pregnancy.

Isabel Marant for H & M

One of my all time favorite designers Isabel Marant, has teamed up with H&M to create an exclusive  2013 Fall collection, which will hit only 250 H&M doors this November.

Year over year her collection's aesthetics always stays true to it's feminine yet effortless origin, which is why the native Parisian has had immense success and a huge cult following.

I look forward to show casing my purchases in November!

Wall Art

Over the past few weeks I have been tinkering with the final touches in my nursery.  Much to my surprise my Achilles heel has been finding suitable wall decor. I have been searching for something playful yet uniform, much like the image above.  My eye was especially drawn to the gold foil graphic and I just ordered a similar one from SS Print!  Now I am currently on the hunt for some complimenting paintings.

I look forward to sharing images of my nursery soon!

P.S I stumble upon a great online store called Best Made! A great resource for finding unique gifts for the man who has everything. You can find the Dart set pictured above featured on their site now.

Favorite Treat

 You will rarely find me in the kitchen baking up a storm. In fact, my approach to baking is haphazard as I prefer the "eyeball" method than actually following recipes or using measuring cups to determine the exact portions. With that said,  every few months I get an itch to bake one of my favorite treats, Coconut Banana Bread and today the urge nudged me to prepare this amazing loaf.

Here is a link to Martha Stewart's recipe, which I use as my "guide" you may note that the recipe doesn't call for chocolate chips but today I added a few for good measure!
