Tennis Love

It's no secret I'm a tennis fan. (Dave and I dream of going to every grand slam one day) With the US Open going on I thought I'd share some tennis love!

Vogue commisioned 11 designers to customize a tennis ball in honor of the US Open this year. Love all of them but here are my faves! Now if they'd just sell these... I'd love to have one of these on my desk!

You can see them all here. I hope this puts you all in the tennis spirit! :)

And while we're talking tennis, can someone come show me how to make my hair look like Brooklyn Decker's while she watched her hubby play his last professional match? so sad. Roddick was a lot of fun to watch! Here's hoping another American will step up and fill his spot.

Also, please note the OU shirt behind her.. Andy's brother is the head tennis coach at OU! I'm praying I'll run into Andy next time he's here visiting!

Latest Finds

I picked these black pants up from the Gap b/c I was sick of wearing jeans every. single. day. (I know... woe is me, I get to wear jeans to work) But these are just as comfy as jeans! Seriously go get yourself a pair now!

Have you all heard of Everlane? It's this great website offers designer quality t-shirts for a fraction of the price! I ordered this one in white b/c I can never have enough white tees! Plus they give you free shipping on the first 3 items you buy! What's not to love??
Stolen from their website:
"It's an industry fact: Your typical designer shirt sells for 8 times what it cost to make. But it doesn't have to be this way. We've set out to challenge conventions and build a new retail model.
We have no physical stores, no middlemen taking their cut and no crazy brand markups. Instead, we create our own luxury basics and sell them exclusively at New designs each month, never over $100."
Actually not even close to $100.. I paid $25 for the white tee below and I've spent WAY more on tees before so I know what I'm talkin bout!

They also have a few accessories - I'm totally adding the weekender bag and the black belt to my wish list!

And I popped into the mall on Monday and got a 40% off coupon at Banana - I picked up this blouse that I plan on wearing un-clipped with my new black pants, much more laid back! Love the color!

And I bought myself a book - The Perfectly Imperfect Home: How to Decorate and Live Well I love the images in this and think it will make a great coffee table book.
