Hi! I’m Courtney and I love pretty things. These pretty things include classic style, interesting fashions, lazy brunches & dinner parties, fabulous cocktails, intelligent minds, and creative solutions to the sometimes not-so-pretty things in life. This is my little corner of the internet to keep track of all the pretty things I come across… whether that’s the latest looks from NYFW or a delightful pizza made with ingredients fresh from the garden, or more likely, a lively spirit I concocted for a brunch that lasted until dinner.
