Flowers in Her Hair: Romantic Braided Bridal Style

We may still be in the midst of Winter, but I spotted this romantic braided hairstyle, complete with little white flowers woven in, and all I could do was dream of Spring.  If you’re a bit of a free spirit or a serious flower lover, or the idea of a delicate floral crown just gets you every time, why not try weaving in a few flowers into a braid or updo for either the ceremony or the wedding party, that way the funkier floral look will only be in some of the pictures.

Bridal Style: Lace Hair-Pieces

We’ve all seen the vintage lace veil or headpiece.  Odds are your grandmother or great-grandmother wore a delicate piece of lace to cover her head at her once-upon-a-time wedding.  But today’s lace hair-pieces are dramatic and beautiful and completely unexpected.  I’ve never been so taken with lace.

Trend to Try: Black & White + Blush

Black and white are two major staples in my closet, and in the cooler months, I practically live in the color combination.  This Fall, I’m trying to throw in a pop of color, and I know I’ve stumbled upon a Fall accent color that is just right: blush.  (Ahem: have you seen my new site design? I’m all for the soft blush paired with black, white, and charcoal.  Swoon.)  I’ve never been one to wear anything overtly pink – though I love the color and will buy office accessories in pink for days.  But blush is subtle, it’s soft and warm, and when paired with crisp black and white, it’s chic, romantic, and ever-fashionable.  The color palette also feels equal parts modern and classic, and is simple to throw together while still looking perfect.

Tuesday Shoesday


These shoes are just so lovely … really, the whole bohemian Botticelli-esque wedding shoot is lovely … but the shoes = so unique. So far, these Free People heels are as close a match as I can find to the lovely nude and black strappy heel seen on this bride.  Any thoughts on where these beautiful shoes could be from?

Winter White Holiday Decor

I love a fresh burst of winter white in weddings. There are plenty of beautifully-themed Christmas weddings, but a winter wedding with subtle nods to the Holiday season are some of my favorites.  White frosted pine, stars, metallic Holiday touches – it all fits the theme perfectly, and makes for a festive celebration.

Awkward Modeling + Wearing White

On the last day of our recent weekend up North, I dragged my husband out of our mini-vacation reverie to put on a blog photoshoot – one of the few I’ve done for this here blog.  I should start by telling you that I’m no model.  I don’t know what to do with my hands, or my legs, or my head, or my face.  I pose awkwardly, I smile weird, I fidget.

The photoshoot went something like this:  My husband would say, “smile” and I would respond, “You’re stupid.” He’d say, “Maybe turn that way,” and I’d throw my purse, err,  my prop, at him.

After I decided (prayed/hoped) that we had enough photos, I declared, “The model needs her rest!” and promptly took a nap.  I was on vacation after all.

But more importantly, I loved this outfit …
