SERENE


Before I head out the door I would make my bed and be sure to layer it with my favorite blanket that keeps me warm on the cooler nights we are now having. Two pretty pillows would sit front and center and then I would instruct my children not to jump on my freshly made bed. I would admire my oatmeal walls and then want oatmeal for breakfast. I would then be sure to grab my handbag and coat off my lovely chair, because let's be real and know I did not hang them up the night before. I adore a serene palette and my life needs some sort of serene.

* I am also guest posting on Simply Seleta today! Adore her and her blog.

A good Friday evening from Tokyo!

Our entire apartment is a neutral canvas, so your serene choices really strike a chord. They're beautiful~but I'm most loving the jacket. How buttery soft does that look?

A lovely November weekend to you and yours...

Warmly,

Elizabeth

Love this taupe-y palate. The Old Navy leather jacket is a true find - who would have thought! And I'm with Nicolle - love your xmas card - I've used Minted before - they're terrific!

I agree everyone needs serenity and it is amazing what a beautiful colour scheme like this can do for your calmness.

I adore your post and it's making me think of those circle stories "If you give a mouse a cookie," One thing leads to another...After seeing this, maybe my darling daughter will wear this adorable oatmeal colored leather jacket I got at a ridiculous price a couple of years ago at the GAP of all places.
