wear this there: golda.

golda coffee shop and restaurant in brooklyn. / sfgirlbybay

you know what they say: “where you get your morning coffee says a lot about you”. people do say that, right? golda is the new, cool spot in brooklyn’s bedstuy neighborhood — take our word for it, it’ll be brimming with caffeine seekers in no time. this swell new spot designed by The MP Shift was inspired by the colors and energy of the late 60’s deli counters, with subtle design elements that hint to golda’s Mediterranean-focused menu. healthy dishes with ingredients like saffron yogurt and chamomile vinaigrette have us wondering if golda would consider delivering to the west coast? we’re feeling a lot of retro feminine looks lately, so use all the warm fuzzies you’ve got. it’s also worth noting that we can’t decide which is our all-time favorite accessory sézane’s sam bag, or the bando’s i am very busy iphone case. you be the judge. this week’s read this there is friendship by emily gould, a true story of modern-day friendship for all its ups and downs!

when you travel in europe, tile is everywhere. and europe is old so you know these beautiful, well-worn floors have been around forever. so they definitely stand the test of time – -in style and in substance. i love the tiles i added to my bathroom remodel and the thing i look forward to most about them is their aging and getting even a little bit worn in because i think a little wear and tear adds character and beauty to tile. for example, here are some beautiful floors that have definitely stood the test of time.

if you’ve been reading here for a while, you know of my fondness for all things wes anderson (and more specifically, the charming mister anderson himself). so it would come as no surprise that this is my absolute new favorite instagram account: @accidentallywesanderson. it’s pure perfection with so many cinematic gems reminiscent of classic ‘wes-ness’ i had a hard time choosing just a few images to share with you. i’m obsessed with the color palette and symmetry of wes anderson’s eye so this account just brings me endless pleasure. should you also be a fan of the man, you might also enjoy this video which i found fascinating.
