I am absolutely horrible at keeping secrets — so the biggest challenge of wedding planning so far has been keeping wedding details under wraps, both on the blog and with friends and family. I just love talking about weddings so it’s been difficult to stop myself from sharing pictures of my wedding dress with my lovely readers! But I do have on tiny detail that I’m allowing a peek at: a gorgeous print from Scouts Honor Co that we had made to put on our guest book table. When I saw a similar sketch on the Scouts Honor Co blog, I knew it was the perfect for the wedding! (And I couldn’t help but share a picture of the packaging, isn’t it adorable?)

Are you counting down for the long weekend like me? Memorial Day is always a signal for me that Summer is officially here — which means days at the beach are just around the corner! Are you hitting the shore this weekend? Which beach look would you choose?

I’m excited to have one of my closest friends guest posting on the blog today about floral arranging, please welcome Navya from The Little Flower Cottage!

I’m super excited to be posting over here on my dear friend Kate’s fabulous blog today.  When Kate mentioned to me that she was interested in  having me share some tidbits about seasonal flowers I jumped at the chance to share with you a little of what I’ve been working on lately.

Spring is such an amazing season for flowers, there are so many gorgeous blooms to choose from. I know that peonies are a personal favorite of Kate’s, so that’s what we’re going to focus on!  Their season is extremely short but perfectly timed for those lovely Spring Weddings — and of course Mother’s Day!  I made these arrangements & bouquets with both in mind.

These arrangements and bouquets were made with peonies in various colors, greenery from my garden, lilacs and viburnum .  I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be helping Kate create her flowers for her own Wedding next May and you can bet Peonies will be making an appearance!

I’ve been missing on the blog for the past week because life has been busy! I had some relaxing time on the Cape with friends, traveled to NYC for work, and hosted my mom and sister at my apartment for the weekend for some wedding planning. When life gets busy sometimes the blog gets put on the back burner, but I was still snapping away pics on instagram to capture a few moments like dinner at Eataly in NY, my pedicure color of the moment, a special delivery for my wedding day attire from Kate Spade, and my new Madewell bracelet making an appearance in the bracelet mix.

Sometimes I think I’m over chevron — but let’s be serious — I just can’t shake it. I love the idea of using wallpaper behind bookshelves; the black and white pattern here is such a graphic balance to the traditional style of the room. Now — where, oh where, can I get some shelves like these in my apartment?

I’ve been thinking about DIYing our wedding flowers, and one of my lovely bridesmaids found  a class on floral arranging nearby that we attended this weekend. It was so much fun learning a few techniques for creating bouquets! I can’t wait to practice what I learned with some other types of flowers.

I’ve never owned traditional espadrille flats; but after slipping into a pair while browsing at J.Crew this past weekend, that may not be for long. I love the bright colors they’ve chosen for this quintessential summer shoe. plus they were oh-so-comfortable. Now, which color would you choose?

Lately I’ve been experimenting with bold royal purples and bright tomato reds in my closet. I snagged a light silky purple blouse from Old Navy last week and paired with some of my favorite red chino shorts; then I spotted a purple and red necklace on the sale rack at J.Crew this weekend and scooped it up! I usually associate these colors with the rich hues reserved for the Fall, but pairing them together in light weight fabrics is working for me this Spring. What do you think of this color combination?

I snapped a few pictures of brunch at our apartment this morning before anyone arrived. I broke up some supermarket bouquets and dispersed them into my collection of mini jadeite vases for a centerpiece at the breakfast table, and put a little extra effort into displaying my fruit salad by layering melon and berries in a round vase.  It was feeling extra bright and Spring-y inside despite the rainstorm outside! Did you have a nice relaxing Sunday too?

I was digging through some old inspiration folders from when I first started this blog and found these two pictures of kitchens filled to the brim with collected artwork. I love how homey each of these rooms look. Slightly cluttered but artfully arranged, they  both look like places that are truly lived in. What do you think of putting art in the kitchen, do you prop up paintings on your countertop?
