I started digging through September issues over the weekend and LOVED seeing all of the green in the pages. I picked a kelly green fabric for the bridesmaid dresses in our wedding (check out the swatch below) and was inspired by a dress I saw Mara Rooney wear — I just love how bright and crisp the color looks! What do you think about these shades of green, will you be rocking it this Fall?
It was a busy weekend! I had (lots) of drinks with my girlfriends at book club, caught a baseball game at Fenway, and checked off a few wedding tasks from the to-do-list! Picking up a print for our guest book table from the framer resulted in some major excitement; and addressing dozens of save-the-dates, a little less exciting but certainly productive! What did you do this weekend?
Do you ever do a look through your old pins and realize a pattern? I picked up on a hot pink moment I’ve been having lately — from rooms to parties, clothes to furniture — everything seems to be electric pink. Another nice thing about revisiting old pins? Realizing the products you pinned are now on sale!
This weekend I had major order envy when one of my girlfriends had an amazing eggplant caprese sandwich while we were out to lunch on Newbury Street. I was still thinking about yesterday afternoon and decided to make a salad version for dinner with my own twist. Breaded eggplant with some tomatoes and mozzarella, topped with sun-dried tomato pesto — it was such a nice combination of fresh summer flavors!
Wedding planning has officially become ‘real’ — our Save The Dates have arrived from the printer! I am so lucky to have a very talented bridesmaid that custom designed our stationery suite for us. I love the black and white color scheme with just a pop of bright green that will set the tone for the rest of the wedding; and the devil is the details; we ordered monogrammed stamps to match. Can’t wait to pop them in the mail this week!
Kitchen wares are top of mind as I’m starting to build our wedding registry; I’m loving the feature on Amazon’s registry that allows you to pull in items from other websites (like etsy!). In my browsing-mode I found these gorgeous neon dipped wooden bowls, spoons, and jars from Wind & Willow Home — something a little different from the department store basics!
I wrote a few weeks ago of having a bit of decor-boredom after being in the same space for awhile. My solution was to rearrange some art and inject a couple of new pieces to spice things up a bit. I tucked my new Emmakisstina print on my bathroom shelf. And I started a new mini-gallery wall in my bedroom with a graphic record I found on eBay, an old drawing from my high school sketchbooks, and my newest acquisition, a canvas print of one of my instagram photos from a trip to the Museum of Natural History. (The nice folks at easy canvas prints sent this to me to test the instagram printing service!). A few small changes can make a big difference to keep a space feeling fresh — do you rearrange your artwork?
My weekend recap is a little light today, because truthfully I spent most of it hiding in my air conditioning from the crazy heat wave we’ve been having in Boston. I ventured away from the window unit in our bedroom for just enough time to mix up some St Germain cocktails — anything to stay cool and refreshed! How did you beat the heat this weekend?
