Every month I subconsciously make a list of things that I’m inspired by, lusting after and falling for. Many of these doodads are featured in at least one of my weekly blog posts, but I thought that as this month is coming to an end I’d feature a group of my current obsessions in one giant post:

1. Navaho Printed Bags - this bag (via) has to be one of the best vintage finds I’ve ever seen. I love the intricate stitching and faded colors which are all complimented by the luscious foxtail.

2. Long Blonde Hair - Every time I’ve grown my hair out to a length that I’m finally happy with, I go the hairdresser and they butcher it all off. After explaining to my latest hairdresser that I only wanted two inches snipped off, I ended up walking out of the salon with seven inches of my long blonde hair hacked off. I know, I know, hair always grows back, but until I get it back to the length that I’m most content with I cannot help but have serious hair envy of girls with locks that fall so beautifully down their backs.

3. No. 6 Clog Boots - There will always be those few items that I sway back and forth on whether or not I should buy. For the past few months I have been adding the No. 6 clog boots (here) to my online shopping carts but have never mustered up the courage to buy them. Well, the time has come - whether my bank account likes it or not, I’m going to purchase these No. 6 boots. I have no doubts that I will wear them practically everyday and that they’ll transition perfectly throughout each season.

4. Ashley Smith - Ashley Smith is quickly becoming one of my new favorite models. I love her gap-toothed smile, “womanly” figure, and the fact that she works out at the same gym as me.

5. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac S/S 2011 Collection - I love the bright, bold colors of this collection and that it was inspired by Le Petit Prince, travel and adventures. These are two of my favorite looks from the runway:

6. Bug Jewelry - I already wear a glow-in-the-dark bug bracelet everyday (see here), but I can’t seem to get enough of these crawly little creatures as jewelry pieces.


Right via Asos - Left via Bottega Veneta

7. Lindsey Thornburg - It’s been over six months since I blogged about Lindsey Thornburg (see here) and I still can’t get her cozy cloaks out of my mind. If only they were just a wee bit cheaper and I’d be wearing one right now.

What are you currently falling for?

    I’m currently falling for long skirts and wool capes! Zara has so many right now that I want. Love that first bag.
