Summer Obsessions II

More sand. More sun {sometimes} and more summer obsessions….

Like comfy cottons. Or specifically this shirt {now on final sale} that I have in every color. It drapes perfectly and it is the softest thing ever. Thank you J.Crew. You saved my summer.

Oh, and did I mention how I ogle over Grey Malin’s photos. I scored this one on One Kings Lane a few weeks ago to hang in Raya’s new room. Maybe a little sophisticated for a three year old, but I know it will make me happy each day I’m there.

I scored a gorgeous gardenia bush {soon to be a burgeoning tree} for Mother’s Day {thanks to my one and only} and I’m loving keeping the freshly cut blooms in bowls of water. The house smells insanely amazing and they make me smile.

I can’t seem to stop myself from buying the kids swimsuits all of the time. This little blue number might be my favorite ever {does it come in my size?} but these mini man trunks are also quite delicious.

What are you obsessing over this summer?

Summer Obsessions


summer obsessions 14 / papery & cakery


Well, hello again friends! Sorry for my in and outs these days. I’m trying to enjoy my summer to the max. Thus far I have a season of Orange is the New Black & House of Cards under my belt. I’m attempting to tackle the next great American novel {what do you mean it isn’t White Girl Problems} and I’m solving world peace.

Oh right, not quite. {No joke about the Netflix series of course. I never joke about Netflix}.

My summer has been mellow, albeit hot and thunderstorm-filled. We are laying low for the most part and I’m trying to soak it up.

I thought I’d share a few of my latest obsessions with you. I’ll try not to be a stranger more often than not

1. Gentle Souls. Thanks to this post I popped over to Zappos and invested in a pair. No lie, I might have to have these physically removed from my feet. They are orthopedics but they are also chic. Ali walked for miles {no pun intended} in NYC this weekend without a peep. Trust me, good investment.

2. Ladies of London. I tend to fawn over the latest and greatest at Bravo, so it was no surprise  for my love affair with Ladies of London. Cole only raised his eyebrows at me a few times this weekend when I demanded we purchase shortbread cookies and drink tea with milk. What can I say? I’m invested. Now in search of all things Union Jack.

3. Coconut Oil. My sisters have been praising its benefits for quite some time now, but it took me awhile to go to the dark side. Now I keep a big jar right in my shower. Before I event dry off I douse myself in it from head to toe. It might be the best lotion I’ve ever had.

Hope your summer is so far filled with reality tv and fabulousness!

Tutti Fruity


tutti fruity / papery & cakery


There’s nothing more summery than a colorful fruity pattern. I’m in love with most of these and can’t seem to get enough of these happy and bold colors in my life {and R + M’s wardrobes}.

{1. Watermelon swimsuit / 2. Watermelon Shower Curtain / 3. Watermelon flats / 4. Fruity tray / 5. Watermelon girls dress / 6. Pineapple print / 7. Watermelon cake / 8. Fruit measuring cups / 9. Watermelon garland}.
