Wedding Belles

13 Jul

Weddings are one of my favorite things in the whole world. There is nothing better than a happy couple in love sharing their love with everyone they love in their lives. I guess you can say that I love love.

I’ve only been a guest at one wedding (I know, crazy but I’m young and the weddings of friends haven’t started yet) but I have worked and helped plan weddings for years.

While my favorite theme/wedding trend often changes, right now I am craving all things rustic

If I were to attend my ideal wedding (rustic and southern) I would wear something romantic, girlie with something rugged mixed in, making me the perfect wedding belle. Linking up with {av} today to share my outfit.

Dress / Boots / Clutch / Necklace / Earrings


Things that make me happy today:

1. Puppy sitting this weekend

2. Beach tomorrow

3. Friday

Summer Picnic

20 Apr

There is something about these recently warm days that make me want to eat every meal outside. I pick restaurants based upon if they have an option of outdoor seating. Living in a city and eating at restaurants like this give me the feeling of a picnic.

In the summer months there is nothing better than a picnic. They always make me feel nostalgic and I adore their effortless simplicity. Whether you are having a picnic with girlfriends, family or a special someone, there is nothing better than eating outside surrounded by flowers, nature and the shining sun.

(Except maybe the unavoidable few bugs that will join the party)

When I go to a picnic I like to be comfortable in an outfit that allows me to easily move. Who knows when the urge to do a cart-wheel or climb a tree will spark. Picnics always make me feel like a child again.



Things that make me happy today:

1. The Lucky One – comes out today!

2. It’s Friday

3. Plan with the bestie this weekend


10 Apr

I need these in every color.

Candy in the form of earrings.

Well done, Kate Spade.

P.S. Did anyone watch Gossip Girl last night? If selflessly paying off someone’s dowry doesn’t prove true love, I don’t know what does. #teamchuck

Wallet for mom

19 Dec

For as long as I can remember, my mom has not used a wallet. Instead she uses something that could be classified as a coin purse. It has a zipper compartment where she keeps change and her credit cards, a few outside slots, one clear for an ID and few other slots where she stores bills. The one she has used forever is from Target. She is obsessed with it and has never found a suitable replacement, I have been dying to find her a really nice one for a year or two now. I have to say, I have been treated great by my parents Santa (thanks for the multiple Louis’) and I really want to give back in a big way. I’m just having trouble finding something similar. I’m staring to give up and may try to convert her to a wallet like a real person. I’m open to any suggestions you may have!

Tory Burch Robinson Envelope Wallet – $225

Kate Spade New York Wallet – $175

Kate Spade Cobble Hill Stacy Wallet – $125

I think I’m just going to go for it and hope she likes it.


Things that make me happy today:

2. Christmas Shopping

3. New Yankee Candles

4 Jul

Happy 4th!! This is the first year that I haven’t spent the 4th of July at my lake house on Lake Sunapee. The house is part rental property for my parents and it is usually rented out for about a month each summer. We normally have our entire extended family up for the 4th but this year we are having a full on family reunion at the lake in two weeks. I guess my parents decided as a compromise they would rent it out earlier.

This leaves me at a loss of what to do. I’ve never had to think about plans for the 4th and I have always been surrounded by my entire extended family. This year I will get to keep my options open, celebrate with my friends and be spontaneous. No matter what I end up doing I will be sure to wear a versatile outfit. One that can transition from day to casual night and of course falls in line with the standard 4th of July color theme.

A Royal Affair

29 Apr
Even though I am already sick of the Royal Wedding (read: media overload) I feel it is a piece of history I must watch. I will be on vacation in St. John during the big day so may have to rely on DVR. This will work in my favor since I plan on pausing every close-up to meticulously inspect each outfit. Gorgeous dresses, shiny jewelry, beautiful bags, large diamonds, and expensive shoes will have me drooling. Had I been so lucky to have received a coveted invitation you can rest assured I would have maxed out all my credit cards to arrive in style. However, I have a feeling my outfit of choice is not the appropriate attire to wear to such an occasion, but in my imaginary world, I can wear anything.
