My Stuff Series **In Honor of Design**

The sweet Anna from In Honor of Design is a gorgeous woman with an incredible heart. Her little family is absolutely gorgeous and her talent is superb (a graphic designer who makes headbands? oooh yes!!) In Honor of Design is full of gorgeousness, from fashion to DIY, from the blogger of the week to great giveaways. You really don't want to miss her, check her My Stuff, you will absolutely adore her!Inspirations
Favorite Discovery: That marriage teaches you how to love unconditionally, and motherhood makes your heart grow twice as large.
Favorite Place in the World: Anywhere my family is. + Mexico Beaches and Italian Villiages. Spain is on my next destination list.
Style Icons: Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly-These women’s best features were there dignity and grace. It made them style icons.
Favorite Movie: To hard to choose! I am a sucker for Romantic Comedies. I watch Return to Me and You’ve Got Mail on a regular basis.

Jeans: Sevens, Paper Denim, J Crew
Underwear: hmmm now that will be kept a secret;)
Watch: If I wear one they have Jelly Bands in bright colors.
Day dress and day bag: I kind of have a bag (and accessories) weakness. H&M and Etsy are my favorite places to find killer bags.
Dresses: Target and Forever21, but my heart was made for Anthropologie and J. Crew 
Evening Dress: I love to shop at locally owned boutiques when I visit different cities. You know you are wearing something unique and supporting a small Business.

Inspiration: Lonny Mag 
Favorite Art: Photography. My house is filled with photography. It can capture a momento in time or a perfect expression. I am so excited to receive a print I just ordered from Simply Hue.
Bedding: Calvin Klein
Stationery: Whimsy Press, Snicklefritz & PJ
Coffee table books: Audrey Hepburn, The Joy In Loving
Flowers: Roses, Peonies
