One of my favorite movies is "An Education" with the simply adorable Carrie Mulligan and Peter Skaarsguard. If you have not seen it I highly recommend it - you will not be disappointed!
I can watch it over and over and never tire of it.  Nick Hornby of High Fidelity and About a Boy (also great movies) created the screenplay and it is beyond charming, hilarious and bittersweet. One of the things I like the most is the 60's era fashion, hair and make-up. As today is Monday.. I thought we could all use a little inspiration..

Love the silhouette of this dress and the lush floral print!

Cat eyeliner and a soft updo

The perfect outfit for a Parisian rendez-vous- right down to the cat eye sunglasses

So dapper! Love the skinny tie and hats

Dreaming of warm summer days full of bikinis, sunbathing, and cocktails by the pool Calypso has released their chic but super affordable line for Target!
I happened to walk in Target at the perfect time when there was still product left of some of the best pieces!
White Cotton Sleepset
I am so excited about this little sleepset! Usually, I wear some of the most unattractive things to bed- a.k.a work out clothes, old mismatched clothing.  So when I saw this sleepset I was excited to actually feel pretty and comfy in this chic little white cotton set perfect for balmy summer nights
Maxi Dress
I saw this brightly colored maxi and knew that it would be the PERFECT cover up for the pool/beach. Throw on some wedges and you are good for a casual night out!

Sequin tote
Perfect for hauling all my stuff to the beach/ pool! Trust me - I usually bring enough stuff for me to camp out there for 3 days/ solutions to any situation that may pop up

I am also OBSESSED with the original Calypso St Barths line. To say the the Spring / Summer collection is drool worthy is an understatement! See the link to the website here.
The price points are much higher , but I am thinking about purchasing a statement dress from there as my summer "go to dress".

Tomorrow is Monday- my least favorite day of the week! This weekend was so amazing- fun and relaxing at the same time. I didn't want it to end..
I was going through my archive and found these pictures I took of a vacation I took to
Prague, Czech Republic ( called "Praha" by the locals) a little over a year ago.
Baroque and romantic, there are beautiful little treasures to discover around every corner
Here are a sampling of some of the pictures I took there to make your Monday a little more dreamy..
Have any of you loves been to Praha? Isn't it amazing?
