All Dolled Up

I hope everyone is having an inspiring, spring week! I am stressed beyond belief. Procrastination is my worst enemy. I litterally wait until the very last minute to do everything. Not good. I am paying the consequences for my belated actions this week. Ugh.

I am so excited because I am going to see my boyfriend in Baltimore tomorrow! We have been dating for 5 months and I still haven't met his parents. I am really looking forward to it. We are going to spend the weekend there and head back to Memphis on Sunday. We are driving.. for 15 hours. Whew! It is the only way he can get his car down here though. Looks like I'll be finishing those books sitting on my end table. 

My inspiration for today is a mix of shabby chic, vintage treasures, & lingerie. I just love pretty, delicate things. I found all the images on my new favorite blog, Paris Apartment. Not only does it have inspirational photography, but it also features amazing decorative finds and fabulous antiques. They also have an incredible online boutique! I am in love with everything in it. You must venture over there.

Love this look? Check out these feminine finds...

[ keep calm & blog on ]


  1. I LOVE the paris apartment. It was one of the first blogs I read before starting my own blog !


  2. Meeting the parents is exciting. It is a big step in a relationship when the other partner wants to introduce you to the parents. You are a sweetie, so I'm sure they will love you. Have fun on the road trip-those are so much fun.

    P.S. Procrastination is something I've had struggles with. I once asked a friend of mine who was VP how she got so much done, and always on time. She said that she would pick whatever the dreaded task was and do it first to get it out of the way so that it wouldn't be looming over her head. It is definitely easier said than done, but I thought it was great advice.

  3. Beautiful photos...I love the turquoise touches! Have fun with you bf!!

  4. SO Pretty!! Have a great time with the BF
