Instagram Roundup #4

by Jamie Sanford on August 23, 2012

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Still having macaron obsession. I bought a batch from Sugar & Plumm for Will and I to enjoy during the Olympic opening ceremonies.

As is the tradition now, we went to the Melting Pot for our Meet-A-Versary (this year was 12 years since we first met in person).

I was THRILLED to see that camera behind Gabby Douglas while watching some gymnastics. People say that film cameras are making a comeback, but I think they haven’t left. It’s certainly easier to use digital, but there is something inherent to film that will never be replicated.

I took this while under my fantastic Britto umbrella.

One of the best parts of the NJ State Fair was watching the 4-H kids walking their alpacas through an obstacle course while holding an egg on a spoon.

I also hung out with this baby chick at the fair. So cute.

We bought the best ice cube tray ever at Bed Bath & Beyond. My root beer was greatly improved by a skull & crossbones.

Missoni for Target – My Picks

by Jamie Sanford on August 12, 2011

Target has released the look book for the upcoming Missoni collaboration on their Target Style Facebook page.

Naturally, I felt the need to pick favorites, to prepare myself for potential online shopping – I don’t dare attempt to go into a store to find things.

Let’s get on with my Missoni for Target picks.

These heels.  Mostly black but with a little something, a heel I won’t fall over in, and a gorgeous print on the inside? I’m in.

I don’t have kids, and I don’t know anyone with a baby girl that’s still a baby and not a toddler. However, I wish I did because this is the cutest little outfit!

So far, Missoni for Target is making me covet things that aren’t in my life, like little girls and a guest room for this fabulous bedding.

This robe isn’t just for bedtime right? I kind of want to wear it with a tank top underneath.

My response to things that are black and white is pretty Pavlovian.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but we went with black and white for our wedding (since I wear black 98% of the time, and I couldn’t get away with wearing black to my own wedding, it seemed like the best alternative) so I gravitate toward all things black and white.

Right, remember what I said about the black and white? That rug is calling my name.

Since heinous rain in NYC finished off my umbrella this week, I need a new one.  This is the only Missoni for Target item that I could justify purchasing out of actual need.

I don’t have any outdoor space, but now I need a patio to go with this patio set.  This is not much of a stretch from things I usually want from Target, I have been known to sit and relax in the patio furniture section when they have everything set up and fabulous. Of course I need a giant tent to hang out in all summer.

The full Missoni for Target lookbook can be seen here.  The collection comes into stores and Target.com on September 13th.

Owl Umbrella Holder

by Jamie Sanford on September 23, 2010

I think that one of the best ways to add some personality to your home is to weave in items that are unexpected. Anyone can have an umbrella stand, but this one is just a bit more interesting.

See what I’m saying? I don’t have an umbrella stand and now I want one. Right now.

This ceramic owl umbrella stand is available from Urban Outfitters for $128.
