We’ve got one last color-themed holiday gift guide this week, and I had to save the best for last: pink! I wouldn’t mind wheeling around on that hot pink cruiser or donning those striped bow gloves! And is there any better gift for a blogger than a hot pink external iPhone battery? I think not!
Up next in the holiday gift guide color wheel is green — these gift may be my personal favorites since a bright kelly green is one of the main colors for our upcoming spring wedding! What’s your favorite green gift?
The benefit of this crazy storm? A cozy night in with my Pinterest boards. I was pinning away last night all things glitzy and gold; including that little pave bubble bracelet came home with me from my NYC trip this weekend! What did you do to distract yourself from the storm?
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?
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 week’s 5 under $50 was inspired by one of the motifs we’re using in our wedding invites — anchors! It seems like they’re the shape of the moment; they’re on just about everything! These are 5 of my favorites for bargain, plus a bonus for your home (don’t you love the bottle opener?):
I mentioned yesterday that I hit up the local J.Crew outlet this weekend and I bought the softest, lightest, most comfortable sweater. I immediately got home and scolded myself for not buying it in every color — it’s a perfect Summer staple for the office or wearing with shorts and a big chunky necklace for some al fresco dining. And it pairs quite well with my favorite bubble necklace! So the question is, which color do I buy next?
Have you seen this new limited edition Chandon bottle for Summer? I’m making it my mission to find some to pop on the Fourth of July — and of course it would pair so well with a little red, white, and blue number. Peplums, stripes, and a little dash of red is a winning combination for a patriotic celebration, don’t you think?
Is there any more quintessential pattern for Spring than gingham? This week’s 5 under $50 features ginghams of all types; I particularly think the gingham sunglasses would make a fine accessory addition to a white sundress for a warm day of brunching al fresco! Which gingham piece is your favorite?
