Saturday Morning Coffee

One of my favorite things to do over Saturday morning coffee (when we have the time, anyway) is talk to my "Style Soulmate" Lauren. Sometimes we let two hours pass by talking about vintage finds on EBay and Etsy, the decision to make a big home purchase, pillows, weddings, fashion----You name it.

I thought it would be fun for a new blog series to share a few of my favorites from the week, things I'm thinking about, purchases I'm contemplating.

Welcome, to Saturday Morning Coffee at MackenziePages.

I just made my (very belated) Christmas list and one of the things on there was a Slim Aarons print.
I asked for "Poolside Gossip", a favorite of mine, set in Palm Springs (see below). In the process of deciding on my first Slim Aarons acquisition, I came across this holiday photo of his, showing his wife floating in a Christmas festooned pool. As someone who adores sun and water time virtually anytime of year, this is just SO fabulous.

Last night I stayed up late re-watching the first season of Mad Men and fawning all over Betty Draper's fabulous ensembles. I love how demure and glamorous she is. And, most of the things she wears, I would wear now. It inspires me to be a little more glamorous each day. This photo above reminds me of a Betty Draper inspired fashion moment.

I'm currently helping a friend with her home, and I'm LOVING this color combo as a pop for the living room. It may be too bright for some, but I love how unexpected this combo is.

Happy Saturday! More to come next week!
