Music Monday: Arcarde Fire

A few years ago when Arcade Fire first came out onto the scene I really liked their stuff. Their new single Reflektor does not disappoint. This is one of my go to songs these days. Arcade Fire does such a great job of taking their sound to the next level on this song and the video is fantastic! Enjoy it here!

Hope you had a great weekend and may this week be spectacular!

Thursday Threads: Hearts for Fall

Who doesn't love fall? I know I do and am counting down the days for the "fall air" to hit Miami. Here are some cute hearty fall items that I found which are bound to work well in the cooler months to come. 
This adorable sweater is for the littlest one in your life. Pair with some cute leggings and your tiny tot will be the talk of the playground for only $23 from Old Navy

These are to die for...I wish they made them for adults...but instead your heart can melt when you baby has these on. Another score from Old Navy for under $20! 

Not just your wee one can bear her heart this fall. This dress from the Gap can move from summer into fall with tights and a chunky cardigan. Currently on sale for $50 online

Hope you are having a great week! 

Happy Shopping!

Art Talk Tuesday: B is for Bob

Work has been a beehive of activity partially due in part to this man. Bob Marley. Thursday October 10, my museum is opening an exhibition coming from the Grammy Museum called, Bob Marley: Messenger. We've been in one big Marley mode for months...and it's not going to settle down anytime soon.

Are you a fan of Bob's? Then if you're in Miami October 10- January 9...stop by HistoryMiami and experience Bob and his message in a new way!

Music Monday: Atlas

I've been so busy...and with good reason...but that's something I will share later. I am going to make a HUGE effort to post this whole week., there's a bunch of great new stuff out there. I am particularly fond of Coldplay's song "Atlas" for the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. It's the first time that Coldplay has written an original song for a movie soundtrack. Have you heard it? Do you like it?

Thursday Threads: Fall, Is That You?

Oh fall...where are you? The idea of you is here with college football kicking off this weekend...but the temperatures are saying otherwise. However, when the mercury starts to fall...this is what I want!

These needlepoint leopard beauties are from C.Wonder and can be yours for $148. I love how preppy they are, yet funky in this leopard print. This is not your grandmother's loafer...unless your grandmother is more like my mom or Mrs. Robinson.

This gorgeous navy leather "moto jacket" is from the Gap! Though it does not have a Gap-esque price tag, it can be yours for $298. I can say if I had this, I would wear it all the time, well into early spring! Love this!

Music Monday: Take Back the Night

Confession. I could not peel my eyes away from the Miley train wreck last night...BUT unfortunately missed JT kill it. All day today I've heard how great his performance was, but have been too busy to watch. In homage to his performance tonight, today I am feeling inspired by "Take Back the Night" which sounds like old school MJ.

Have a great week!

Wardrobe Wednesday: Summer Grey

I am so glad it is Wednesday, although I know that there is a lot of activity between me and Friday. I have been swamped and there has just not been time to write this week, which makes me sad. I thought I might roll my Music Monday into today's post...and well doesn't this drawing count as my Art Talk Tuesday? let's just go with that, shall we?Now as for what I am wearing...

1. Beaded Collar necklace, Anthropologie
2. White collarless shirt, Gap
3. Grey skinny jeans, Levis for Target
4. Grey and white medallion printed ballet flats, Old Navy (here)

I have apparently been under a rock. Bob Schneider's Moon Song apparently was released 13 years ago...shows how much I listened to before my XM days. I recently discovered it and I immediately added it to my "Songs to Download" list on my phone.

Hope you are having a great week!
