Everyday Obsessions {9} - Caroline Rogers, Looks Good To Me

I know, I every week's Everyday Obsessions I'm blathering on about how much I love this blog, or that blog but seriously, I just about fell over when I discovered Caroline Rogers of Looks Good To Me ...textile designer by day, she combines two of my loves - illustration and fashion into one gorgeous package...go see for yourself and be completely charmed! Thank you Caroline!! 

p.s. - you can buy prints from her shop here and some extra special limited editions at tenoversix

In My Closet:
Tee - T by Alexander Wang (not cheap I know, but once you put one on you never want to take it off)
Jeans - AG Stilt (when I want to splurge) or Uniqlo Skinny Straight Fit (when I want to save)
On my feet - Rachel Comey booties & Cole Rood and Haan oxfords for the work week but I live in my TOMs all weekend long

In My Kitchen:
Cookbook- A blog addict through and through, I get most of my recipes from It's pure food porn!
Gadget - I just ordered a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker and even though I haven't received it yet, something tells me it is going to be an instant favorite. Look forward to homemade ice cream recipes on LGTM this summer!
15 min easy recipe -Jean Georges Vongerichten's Ginger Fried Rice recipe (via the New York Times). I make this multiple times a week it is so good!
Can't live w/o ingredient - Lemon juice

Walls - The super light grey color we painted our bedroom is called "Marilyn's Dress." I've always thought that was a great name.
Bedding - Dwell Studio Draper Stripe (if you've read my blog you know I have a bit of a thing for stripes).
Flowers - Terrariums that I made myself line our windows and I always buy hydrangeas from the deli on the corner when they have them!
Favorite design source - Elle Decor magazine
