Have a magical weekend.

My dears, what are you doing this weekend? I'm heading up to Seattle to visit my long-lost college friend Penny. It will be my first time in Washington state, and I'm so excited. In the meantime, here are a few great posts from around the web this week...

Cute summer look.

Vintage underwater photography.

Ahh, the office. (Via For Me, For You)

Emma Watson looks pretty in Teen Vogue.

Go Oprah, go Oprah...

For his grad project, Alex Cornell imagined a Wes Anderson Film Festival--and then produced the identity, promotional materials and even a trailer. Brilliant! (Via Milk Tooth Rain)


Balloons for breakfast.

Yet another rad stash.

Bedroom swoon.

Wow. Nice shot, Mr. Sartorialist.

My first-date advice for a dude.

Yay! Chelsea started a Portland street-style blog.

Aphrodite and Adonis.

Illustrated missed connections.

Plus, shopping news:

Our favorite Portland boutique Frances May is having a summer sale.

Male New Yorkers, get thee to this pop-up men's shop.

And, randomly, I bought this American Apparel parka in navy blue and am obsessed with it. It's cute, lightweight and waterproof. Perfect for a rainy summer. I wanted to highly recommend for anyone who needs a rain jacket!

Dionne said...

Those underwater shots are gorgeous, and I LOVE the Wes Anderson Film Fest stuff - those tiltshift shots he's used are sooo cute!

That breakfast balloon bouquet is so endearing!

Carol said...

Have fun in Seattle this weekend! We are supposed to have great weather so you're coming at the perfect time! I'm excited to hear about what you did here! I wont be in the city, I'll be up at my parents cabin by Mt. Rainier. you'll be able to see the mountain from downtown though. Enjoy!!

Bri said...

I have no idea where you find all of these awesome photos. They're always great.

Enjoy washington, it's so nice! And make sure to eat lots of cherries. :)

elizabeth said...

your blog has provided me with so many great tips, allow me to offer a few seattle tips of my own.

don't miss cafe presse & espresso vivace (stumptown is also quite good)! molly moons salted caramel ice cream is also very pleasant on a sunny day.

rhart said...

that one shot of emma watson with the ponies is the best one, dont you think?

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Cute vintage kiddies. Also love the vintage underwear post link. Have a great weekend.

alicia abood said...

joanna, thanks for the parka recommendation! it's rained literally *non-stop* in boston for the past week and a half and i have yet to own a legit rain coat. i'm moving to chicago in less than a week, but sure it rains more there than here. . . yikes. i think i have to take you up on your recommendation!

orange sugar home said...

I can't get over those underwater shots!! they are wonderful and I'd like a huge one hanging in my house!!

LouDuk said...

Seattle sounds amazing! I have never been either! Would love to go.

Elyse said...

Great links, as always!! And I LOVE that parka from AA...maybe I will be able to afford it someday. ;)

Love the Office exhibit. Makes me appreciate my SAHM status for a moment. The bambino and I are enjoying a little mountain getaway with my Mom and grandmother. Hope you have a fab one!

vanessa joie said...

So much goodness... Have a wonderful weekend!

Deb said...

Thanks for the shout out, Joanna! Have a fantastic time in Seattle :)

Sammi said...

My Spanish landlord has an awesome handlebar moustache just like that one. Spain is the place where you will still find the mullet is a fashion icon mind you.

I am loving the office stuff and have sent the link around to friends of mine who work in offices.

Alya said...

Oh look at that cute boy's (or girl) face!

By the way, I've got a Perricone MD product to give away over at my blog. Come check it out :)

I second the Cafe Presse and Vivace recommendations. Molly Moon's is an absolute MUST in Seattle, and the Olympic Sculpture Park on a sunny day will break your heart. Have the BEST time in Seattle!

Anonymous said...

That picture is the best! How adorable. And those little hats!!!

Anastasia said...

Oh my, this photo reminds me of the puppet show scene from Truffaut's 'Les Quatre Cent Coups.' (

Vintage french kiddos are the best!

Have a good weekend! If you have time, track down the skillet street food airstream trailer for some gourmet street food. It's my favorite!

Lee Beth said...

I like the looks on the faces of those children in that picture. Really expressive. Don't you just love really expressive faces. (Sounds weird to put it that way, I think, but you know what I mean) Always just makes you wonder...what were they thinking just then? What were they looking at? What was on their minds? Its like they're off somewhere else, lost in some thought, captivated by something. If only you knew what. Mysterious and beautiful, I think. I know, something so simple, and I come up with this long post. Oh, and also, thank you for wishing us a well weekend.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Aw, those children are terrified but adorable! Hope you're having a good one, too. Love the Valet advice :)

STORY said...

Joanna, you will love Seattle! It's beautiful. If (by some chance :P) it rains, go out at night, in the rain, downtown. It's stunning. All the lights and the cars--magic.

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks for the incredible links

Carissa said...

ok, so when I first read "vintage underwater photography" I read it as "vintage UNDERWEAR photography" and I was like "What??" So you know I clicked on it. Then I realized my mistake... but I loved the photos anyway!

and Emma Watson does look so pretty in that spread. beautiful images.

Nikolett said...

I hope you had an amazing time in Washington! That's great to reunite with a friend :) And thanks for sharing all those links.

My weekend was spent celebrating two separate birthdays and then catching up on sleep, which was fun!

Lucy said...

do you ever wonder if you've directly inspired someone?

my friend recommended a cup of jo and i follow it rather religiously. it's early days yet, but i just thought i'd let you know that you have inspired me to create my first blog. i'm quite a young'un and a tad technologically inept, but i'm doing the best i can and having a lot of fun with it.
thank you so much joanna :)
xx Lucy
