lovely links.

My about me page states: I hope my blog will inspire you in one way or another. To shop, to decorate, to travel, to eat, to cook or simply to smile.

In keeping with that hope, here’s a round up of links that have inspired me this week. I hope they’ll do the same for you.

1. SHOP – The Everygirl’s feature on fashion designer Emerson Fry. I want it all. Shop on Emerson Fry’s website. Click here for the jacket below & here for the blouse below.

2. DECORATE – The AERIN sale on One Kings Lane ends today. Read my previous post on AERIN. Her decor {& everything about her} is classic, effortless & chic. I kind of worship her. I think I NEED her book – Beauty at Home. Purchase at the One Kings Lane sale by noon or preorder on Amazon here.

3. TRAVEL – Things That Sparkle’s post on her anniversary vaca in Santorini. I mean, this photo. I die.

4. EAT – A friend of mine emailed me about Chicago restaurant recommendations & it got me to thinking about where I want to go eat in Chicago when I visit in November. Meet this burger... & fries. I want to go to Au Cheval badly. Photos via.



5. COOK – Cupcakes & Cashmere Strawberry Buttermilk Scones. A cup of tea + one {or three} these would be heavenly.


6. SMILE – This Facebook post from Open Heart Magic.

About: Open Heart Magic is a Chicago area charity. Our volunteer magicians visit kids in the hospital and engage them with interactive magic performances. OHM empowers the kids by renewing their sense of confidence and engaging their imagination and excitement.
