Bring on swimsuit season!

Faherty Brand -- Cami Underwire Top in Blue Wave -- $130

Pineapple bikini -- jcrew -- $54 for the top and $44 for the bottoms

As a redhead, I'm always looking for cute ways to stay protected from the sun....

Where can I get this table?

Forget about the clothes, I want the table!  Total swoon.  Saw this on and couldn't get enough.

From the archives

In honor of the four year anniversary of Scarlet&Sterling on May 19, I've decided to take a look back at some of the different places and spaces I've called home during that time -- more specifically, all of the apartments I've lived in over the course of writing this blog.  All photography is my own.

 This is the house I grew up in -- my parents still live here! 

 First apartment after college.  Futon on the floor -- enough said.

 First Somerville apartment -- lived here for 9 months

 Summer sublet near Porter Square in Cambridge -- this room got amazing light

 My writing studio during that summer

 Here's a close-up of the desk

 First year in my current apartment -- a former roommate's chairs with my suitcases

 Bedroom of my current apartment, which has evolved over time

View outside my bedroom window

 Current entryway with mirror and bookcase

 One of my favorite parts about this place is the light -- perfect for plants!

 Obsessed with these floors

Dining room table where I wrote my book last summer.

The Brimfield tradition continues

 Hi mom!

When lilacs last

WHEN lilacs last in the door-yard bloom’d,
And the great star early droop’d in the western sky in the night,
I mourn’d—and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.
O ever-returning spring! trinity sure to me you bring;
Lilac blooming perennial, and drooping star in the west,
And thought of him I love.    

In the door-yard fronting an old farm-house, near the white-wash’d palings,
Stands the lilac bush, tall-growing, with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
With many a pointed blossom, rising, delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle......and from this bush in the door-yard,
With delicate-color’d blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig, with its flower, I break.
                            Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, 192.
