Little Love Notes

summer j.crew downing tote panama hat lace sandals - little love notes

I’m kind of blown away that it’s already August; and several days in, at that!  Baby girl is officially one month old and I still can’t believe how quickly she is growing.  (I promise a full update is coming soon.)  Trying to get back into the swing of things – blogging when I can, answering e-mails, checking in with the law office (though in truth, I feel totally behind on everything!)  If you’re a mama, please share your work/life balance secrets … I need all the help I can get!

A few little love notes to get you through the weekend …

Dear Success 101, how Loeffler Randall made it as a crazy cool indie brand.

Dear Etsy lovers, the hugely popular online “handmade marketplace” is working to get their sellers in brick-and-mortar stores (think West Elm, Nordstrom, and more).

Dear newfound tote bag obsession (because I am so addicted … Exhibit A, above), this fringe tote takes it to a whole other level.  Level awesome.

Dear Tory Burch, a tabletop collection inspired by 19th century English ceramics … you had me at hello.

Dear Urban Outfitters, bravo.  Love this little gold storage rack/nightstand.  Chic and affordable … and headed to a baby girl’s nursery, stat.

Dear dreamiest of wedding dresses, this lace design is everything.

Dear priorities, it’s okay to say no (or at least, I’ll keep telling myself that.)

Dear weekend baking, these morning glory muffins look so good and could totally pass for healthy.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Design Gorgeous Wedding Fashion

I just had to pop in today in the midst of my little “Maternity Leave” guest post series to absolutely squeal about the amazingness that is the bohemian fashion of Molly and Asher’s California wedding, a.k.a., the wedding dress Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed for a long-time friend, Molly.  I don’t know what I’m more enamored by, the bride’s lovely lace handmade wedding dress, or Mary-Kate and Ashley’s effortlessly chic sleeved bohemian dresses.  The girl’s dresses are each so unique, and yet somehow completely complement each other.  Get in my closet!

Even the petite flower girls are rocking some seriously fashion-forward ethereal cream dresses.

Rue de Seine 2014 ‘Young Love’ Wedding Collection

Although I went just a bit glam for our first wedding (and I say first wedding here, because I have every intention of marrying my hubby a hundred times over … we like to throw a great party, and tell the world how much we love each other … because, yep, we’re that couple), I have always planned to go a bit more bohemian for our next wedding (or ten).  And these dreamy wedding dresses from the new Rue de Seine 2014 ‘Young Love’ Collection are everything I’ve ever dreamed of and more.

The new collection called ‘Young Love’, was inspired by the modern bride; it’s all about the restless spirit of new and young love.

From Rue de Seine:

“We have tried to capture this feeling with flowing silhouettes and bohemian inspired embroideries and laces. We are particularly thrilled this season about our hand crochet gowns and bold beaded florals on nude fabrics. The collection is romantic, feminine, and embodies the carefree spirit of the Rue de Seine bride.”

By the way, I had a really tough time narrowing down my favorites, so you should definitely check out the full collection on Magnolia Rouge.

Dress of the Week

Lace Sleeve Tutu Wedding Dress - Desert

In truth, a big billowy white tulle tutu gets me every time, but re-imagined as part of a delicate sleeved lace wedding dress is just stunning.  I love the length of the tulle skirt – perfect for the couple’s beach wedding, and the details, from the buttons down the back of the bride’s dress to the polka-dotted birdcage veil, are just perfect.

From the bride, on her dress:  “I would have never found exactly what I wanted unless I had it made. My dress consisted of a large ballerina skirt and lace top that buttoned in a V at the back, it was made by Carmelita, a seamstress in Lagos. I really want to wear it all the time.”

Dress of the Week

Charleston Winter Wedding - blue dress

This stunning wedding dress takes “something blue” to a whole new level.  And after falling in love with that blue and white silk Valentino dress in the Street Style Trend Report on florals, this bustled wedding dress easily stole my heart.  (I’m always game for a bold wedding dress, especially one with a gorgeous blue print and a classic French nod!)

The bride also happens to have such a way with accessories … those gold Gucci sandals are oh-so right!

Dress of the Week

Weddings Unveiled Winter Wedding Lace Dress

Happy Saturday! I wanted to share this absolutely gorgeous wedding dress today.  The peeks of lace through the bust and all along the back are just stunning and it’s the perfect mix between sexy and demure, which I love.  And that dainty crystal belt; it’s perfect.  I’m also really digging the double braided updo … is it Spring yet?
