Candy Canes & Christmas

Christmas is right around  the corner and I am not even close to finished shopping! Instead of stressing out I am thinking of everything sweet about Christmas!  Candy canes, chocolate, ornaments and pretty packages wrapped with bows, what else could be better? Sing a few carols with friends and kiss your sweetie under some mistletoe… or just because. What are you favorite things about this time of year? I would love for you to share!

Pretty Pumpkin Party

I will be the first to admit that fall is not my favorite season… I know, I know. I do love that the weather is cooling, but I do not like that it means winter is coming. I am so much more of a sunshine, bright spring and summer colors, hang out by the pool kind of girl. So, even though fall is here I will not be down. I have found some of my favorite fall things to throw a party on today’s blog! The number one thing (to me) that says fall has arrived is pumpkin spice lattes at that famous coffee shop, and who doesn’t love pumpkin? So lets throw a pumpkin party, and I’m not talking about a pumpkin patch kiddo party, I’m talking a pretty pumpkin party. Start with sweet tone on tone invitations with a ribbon tied in a knot; while you’re at it throw a ribbon in your hair too. Set the tables with pretty plates and linen napkins. I am loving the idea of taking your favorite serving dishes to the paint store to match the color, then painting your pumpkins to match! If you don’t think your serving dishes would be pretty pumpkin colors you can not go wrong with flowers. I love to change things up, so instead of your typical fall colors create centerpieces from soft yellow parrot tulips, white ranunculus, greenery from the flower stems and a touch of red. For dessert serve cider and pumpkin rolls. I’m thinking I love this so much I need to have a girls night for a fun dinner party; who wants to be added to the list?

Be Happy. Love Life.

It’s crazy to think this week has only consisted of four work days. I’ll be the first to admit that I could use an extra day of work with all of the fun and exciting things going on in the office… but I am glad it is the weekend. Fashion Night Out is tonight in NYC and Arin and Jessie are at Journelle (stop by and see them if you’re in the area). Whether you are celebrating FNO in your own city, having tea at a bridal luncheon, going out with the girls, or calling a champagne Saturday we hope your weekend is wonderful! Oh yes, guys put on your best tie, or game face… we know you are excited football season is here. Be Happy. Love Life. Happy Weekend to all of you!

Cute Kiddos

You have to admit it, outside of a gorgeous bride on her wedding day, the next cutest thing are those cute kiddos! I absolutely love all the tutu’s and bows. What a great way to tie in your accent color in a sash, or hat. Anything goes for what to send the little one in your wedding down the aisle with these days. I am in love with the “yay!” flag! How cute is that little guy in the bow tie? Do you have a cute memory with a cute kiddo at a wedding? We would love to hear about it!

A Few of my Favorite Things…

I noticed after I began putting together my inspiration for today that I am really in love with light pinks and neutral shades (tomorrow will be bright, I promise). I also noticed that everything in today’s post are my favorite things. Starting with the color pink, what girl doesn’t love the color pink? I don’t own a huge hat, I think that will be my quest for this week/weekend, but I LOVE them and have decided I need one, much like this one. I love everything floral; the smell… the textures… flowers are all spring and that’s my favorite season. If I said I love sweets, that would be an understatement. Thank goodness for the elliptical because after all of the sweets I have had in the last week it is my best friend. Other things I love include fabulous silks, girlie boutiques, accessories with bows and adorable shoes. I ‘heart’ every one of my favorite things and I hope you love some of my favorite things, too. What are some of your favorites, I would love to hear!

The Weekend is Here

The weekend is here and we’re headed off. Off to little sibling graduations, off to be with friends, off to hang out in the sun and catch some rays… but not until 5:00. There are still things that need to be tied up before we skate off into the weekend sun. Have a great weekend!

Black, White & Stripes

A couple of weeks ago I found this wedding on Style Me Pretty. I’ve been looking at the pictures and trying to pair this wedding with other colors and patterns and it just doesn’t work. The black, white and stripes of this affair and simply perfect. I only pulled a few photos from the wedding, but you can view the rest of the photos on Style Me Pretty.
