It’s been radio silence over here for a few days as I started my new job and have been preparing for that little event I’m planning: the wedding. We’re just two and half months away which means it’s becoming ‘go-time’ — I’ve been spending my evenings lining envelopes and neatly practicing writing out addresses. Just another week or so and those invites will be out the door (and then onto the next project!). Not that I’m complaining, playing with stationery, picking out ribbons and floral details, and writing to-do-lists happen to all fall in the category of my very favorite things.
You know how brides start to get nervous and crazy as their wedding gets closer from all of the stress? See, I’m pretty relaxed about the wedding, but what I am stressed about is that with the big day just 3 months away, that’s only a few more issues of my favorite bridal magazines showing up in my mailbox! I might not be able to give up my Martha Stewart Weddings after the vows are said and done — especially after this gorgeous race-track inspired wedding in the most recent issue. Black and white stripes are playing a big part in our wedding decor, so these ideas are getting bookmarked! See the rest of the wedding here.
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?
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?

Did you feel that touch of cool in the air this weekend? It’s causing me to go crazy with lust over fall fashion — I’m pulling out the black dresses and animal prints, and mixing in some bright accessories (like that hot pink bib necklace from Bauble Bar that just arrived in my mailbox this weekend). These are just a few of the things on my radar this week:
It feels a little sad that summer has come to an end; I’m ready for cooler weather but not ready to let go of the long days and beach time and dinners on the porch. I bought myself a big bunch of bright yellow flowers to try and keep a little touch of that summer feeling in my apartment for just a few days longer. Are you holding on to summer, or ready for fall?
