One Chloe Bird

Summer Breeze

Pretty in Pink from Elizabeth and James.

Soft, easy and breezy - a great summer dress on the Jill Stuart runway.

A sweet polka dot bathing suit from Madewell makes me wish that it was time to jump in the lake at the cottage.

Purple Shorts from J. Crew have that juicy punch that only summer seems to pack!

Cute summer outfit - ahhh warm weather please come quickly!

Minnie Mortimer's Dreamy Home

Oohhh a million thanks have to go out to Julie Richard and her beautiful blog Shelter, without her I would not have seen Minnie Mortimer's beautiful home. The photos are from Vogue but I don't remember ever seeing this house. I am always a sucker for a home with beautiful bookshelves and lots of interesting books filling them! Enjoy.


Stripes Please!

The always adorable Alexa Chung in stripes snapped by Vanessa Jackman and discovered on The Neo-Traditionalist. Katie used these shots of Alexa for her charming "Girl Crush" feature.

Striped Dress by Zara.

Even bold stripes in the new Lonny Magazine! Photography by Patrick Cline.

Striped Cadet Cardigan from Madewell.

Tickled Pink

This colour scheme, from a very sweet birthday party, featured on Shelter inspired me. It is getting towards February, where pink and red are colours of the season. Whether you love or loathe Valentine's Day, I do always enjoy the injection of colour in a regularly gloomy month. Anyway, back to the sweet shades of pink and red . . . .

Michael Penny featured these Emerson Made flower accessories on his blog today. I love the soft pink and yellow combinations. I featured Emerson Made here and here after discovering Emerson and Ryan's work through A Cup of Jo.

This is the Silk Betty Layered dress from Banana Republic. It's actually available in a Dark Steel, but I just love the Deep Rose shade. It makes me think of bright bursting Peonies in the spring!

It may sound silly, but I'm a sucker for really good pens - kind of like how Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks talk about bouquets of newly sharpened pencils in You've Got Mail. Maybe it's just a common teacher trait. Anyway, these Staedtler ones are my absolute favourites. Linking this in with my desire for all things poppy and pink today, I had to go buy a few this afternoon . . . .my pink one had died from overuse!

Last but not least, I've always loved the soft and subtle touches of hot pink in this Domino Magazine feature. I stumbled upon it while scouting through this feature on Apartment Therapy.

Basic Black

"Love" is my word of the day for all things Basic Black.

I absolutely love this black chair featured on Shelter today. They are available here.

I love the monochromatic effect of the black shoes, tights, coat, and sunglasses that Michelle Williams wore in NYC. Image via InStyle.

And despite possibly sounding redundant, I love this poster for Black Swan. I found it today on the My Wardrobe blog.
