I have just started tackling some research for building out our registry. My fiancé and I already live together — in fact we’ve lived in 3 different apartments over the past few years and have accumulated lots of kitchen items — but most of those things are hand-me-downs, and college-era relics. I’m talking all about my plans for building a registry of kitchen ’upgrades’ over on Wayfair’s My Way Home blog today — head over and join the conversation!
I was lucky to catch a few runway shows at The Tent for Boston Fashion Week on Saturday. My favorite of the shows was Luke Aaron who presented gorgeous, lady-like pieces. Peplums, gingham maxi skirts, and smart little structured bags all made an appearance on the runway. And the best part? The long, bouncy ponytails on the models — they looked sophisticated and un-fussy — something to keep in mind on my next bad hair day!
Boston weather is making me a bit crazy this week — it’s freezing cold in the morning and then toasty warm by mid-day. I like to commit to a season, and I am ready for Fall. I’m already plotting my official switch from sandals and sundresses to my Fall Uniform … which pretty much consists of tights and boots with cozy dresses, and bright jeans with soft striped tees. What’s your Fall uniform?
Finding the perfect wedding dress was a super painless and easy task for me — I was incredibly decisive and knew exactly what I was looking for. As a self-professed statement necklace junky, my hunt for the perfect wedding day jewelry has been far more of a challenge. Big chunky beaded necklaces, layers or pearls, delicate gold chains, I just can’t seem to make up my mind! These are the few of the contenders in the mix now, which one is your favorite?
Did you watch the Emmy’s last night? It was sea of yellow! Julie Bowen’s structured chartreuse dress was my favorite of the crowd, and I thought Claire Danes looked so comfortable and effortless in Lanvin. I love that Julianna Margulies opted for a jewel-toned Giambattista print, it was so different from everything else on the red carpet. My hands down favorite thought was Allison Williams in a rich green Oscar de la Renta dress, she gets my vote because it’s one of my favorite colors (just ask my bridesmaids who will be wearing green at my wedding!).

I am ready not just for the weekend, but a long weekend — I’m taking an extra day off and hope that it looks a little something like this breakfast scene. Don’t you just love the styling?

Do you have a signature pattern? I’m pretty committed to stripes — both in fashion and decor. But every once in awhile I cheat on stripes and end up falling in love with polka dots. I’m currently enamored with all of these black and white polka dot bracelets and their pop-art feel!
What a gorgeous weekend! I checked out a new flea market in Davis Square and scooped up a mini-globe bank from one of the vendors; it’s going to be dangerous now that I know such a great thrifting spot is in my backyard. And in other shopping news, I got an amazing shirt from Old Navy — I couldn’t say no to hot pink and navy stripes. Nothing like a few good bargains to start the week off right!
I’ve been enjoying the New York Fashion Week updates from the comfort of my own home this week, living vicariously through the instagrams and tweets, pins and posts, of all of my favorite bloggers. The one piece that has stood out for me among all of the fashion week chatter has been this gorgeous striped Oscar De La Renta dress… isn’t it just the most chic thing you’ve ever seen?
