Wedding Favorites- The Venue

In looking at my past wedding posts, I don't think I ever shared where Alex & I will be getting married!  My sister (an event planner) suggested Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack.  With it's rustic, romantic charm it reminded us of Tuscany and we immediately fell in love.   I hope our guests love it as much as we do! Enjoy your weekend everyone...

Sunglass Hunt

I want to be this girl.  Her hair, that dress, the perfect pop of color clutch.  I die, but my favorite thing about this picture is the classic tortoise shell sunglasses.  It inspired me to search out a pair.  Here are some different styles above which also come with varrying pricepoints.  The Miu Miu's are my favorite, but they are a tad pricey so the Kate Spade ones will do just fine.  Do you work tortoise into your waredrobe?

1.  Miu Miu - $325
2. Kate Spade - $128
3. Ralph - $89

My Obsession is Back...

Ikat Crazy

If you've been following this blog for a bit you know that I am cray cray obsessed with Ikat.  Well... our Manuel Canovas line just launched a new collection of Ikats and it brought out the stalker in me again.  Above are some fun, inexpensive ways to incorporate this print into your home and wardrobe.  Visit my page on polyvore for the where to shop links.

Friday's Favorites: The EP Outfit

Engagement White

I love the idea of brides wearing white to all of the parties in celebration of their wedding.  My mothers friend has been kind enough to host an engagement party for Alex and I.  Obviously, I have been in search of the perfect outfit since the day it was announced.  Here are two options I've come up with so far.  Thoughts?  Enjoy your weekend everyone...

A Feminine Edge

This, to me, is the epitome of chic.  Throw a scalloped edge on a basic black short and an outfit goes from ordinary to amazing.  I found a similar version here, from Aqua at Bloomies.  I am in love and need to replicate this exact outfit. Better get my butt to the gym to get those legs in shape for short season!

Preppy & Paperless

I am absolutely in love with Paperless Posts.  They are perfect for the working, traditional, woman who doesn't have time to gather their stationary and write a hand crafted note, but still want to make an impression.  The cards are either very inexpensive or the few above are FREE.  It doesn't get much cuter and I'm honestly trying to find excuses to send friends cards now because I can't get over how adorable they are.  Enjoy this beautiful day.

The Perfect Office

I saw the office of Amanda Teal and it made me swoon.  It's perfection- a mix of old &, color & neutrals, personal & business... I absolutely adore it and need it in our future house.   An inspiration board like Amanda's is a really inexpensive way too perk up an office.  You can find them on etsy, from target or make your own using cork board and linen fabric.  Here is a super easy DIY tutorial.

Wedding Favorites- Color Palate

The wedding planning has been such a happy experience so far.  My mother and sister have such wonderful ideas and are so supportive.  I'm very lucky.   Lately, I've been obsessing over my inspiration board.  There are so many beautiful weddings out there to get idea's from, but I've been basing all of my recent choices on color.  I adore the above palate. Champagnes, pinks, creams and whites.  I find it to be very girly, extremely romantic and perfect for a spring wedding...
