Every month, I share the items on my wish list in my “Lust List”. As fun as those posts are to do, I’ve been wanting to do something a little more personal to share the things I currently can’t get enough of and hopefully, read about your obsessions as well. While I love that La Dolce Vita has grown to have a very editorial look and feel, I want to get back to the roots of this blog and connect with you all a bit more. Each month, I will share the things I am currently obsessed with and I hope that you’ll share some of your current obsessions in the comments section!
TV Show(s): I’m late to the party on both of these shows, but better late than never, right? I can’t get enough of Arrested Development and Nashville. Arrested Development is acerbic and hilarious in the best way possible while Nashville is another great, juicy drama on ABC. Both are so fun to watch!
Song: “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood- This has been my go-to song all summer. I love, love, love it and the video is beautifully done, too. I love the vintage Mercedes and scenes of my beloved LA.
Instagrammer: @KatieArmour—It’s so fun to keep up with Katie as she captures her New York adventures through her distinctly “Neo-Traditionalist” and “Matchbook” eye.
Pinterest User: Sue from The Zhush—She and I have similar taste and I am drawn to just about everything she pins!
Blog: Since being out on my own again, I finally have more time to catch up on my favorite blogs and discover new ones. While catching up on Things That Sparkle the other day, I was introduced to It’s the Little Things and I cannot get enough of her hilarious, weekly “Coffee Talk” posts with recaps of that week’s reality shows. It reminds me of Scented Glossy Magazines. Do you guys remember her?
Fashion Muse: Miranda Kerr, as evidenced by my last Modern Style Muse post.
Inspiring Designer: My blogger bestie and dear friend, Mark Sikes. Mark was sweet enough to invite me to stay at his gorgeous home in Los Angeles last month and while I was there I got to see him in his element and in action in his office. To say I was inspired would be an understatement. He has such an amazing understanding of his own style and such a keen eye. Not to mention, we have a ton of fun together!
Trips being Planned: Hopefully, we’ll be taking a trip to London soon in celebration of our 8th wedding anniversary. We haven’t been since 2009 and I am dying to go back!
