what I wore: dress – vintage/handmade by a seamstress’ union via cheap thrills, platforms – target, earrings – in retrospect
Long weekends are always wonderful. We went to the lake, out to dinner, to the pool and farmer’s market. It finally feels like summer!
I have something I am thrilled to share with you! Tomorrow will mark my 1000th post! I realized it last week and thought I really ought to do something big. So, my lovely wedding photographer Mallory Berry, a very talented makeup artist Mollie Booth and I collaborated on a little outfit photo shoot that I’m super excited about. Also, two of my favorite local boutiques (The Grey Dog & Cheap Thrills) have signed on to help me giveaway some fabulous vintage! Please come back tomorrow for the whole story!

Every year during carnival season, I wonder (more than usual) why I ever left New Orleans. The city is really so different than any other place in the country. Once you fall in love, you start a life-long affair with the place. Who couldn’t love a city that shuts down for a party?
So, although it’s just another Tuesday in Fayetteville, I’m wishing everyone a happy mardi gras! Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Today is April 27th. That means our wedding is exactly four months away. I hyperventilated a bit when I realized. In honor of that and of the royal wedding (of course) I thought I’d share some of my wedding inspirations. If Kate Middleton forsakes Queen Victoria’s jewels for flowers in her hair I will never forgive her.
anything vintage or meaningful
a jewel-encrusted gown
a stunningly simple setting for the ceremony
shoes that sparkle
a ranunculus boutonnière
on a classic tux
sneaks at the reception
all the girls in light, feminine hues
flowers in her hair
honeymoons in far off places
a little new orleans flavor
What’s the best way to say goodbye when you’re leaving your own wedding? I’ve got to say I think I like petals or birdseed best. What do you think?
