Fall Wardrobe

It's my goal to do very minimal clothing shopping while we're here in Alabama.  In fact, I'm only allowing myself to purchase two items (more on that in a minute).  I think it will be fun challenge to mix and match the items that I packed in my suitcase to create new outfits.  However, before my "no shopping" challenge began, I knew there were a few items that needed to be replaced.

One of those was a pair of neutral flats.  I love my flats in the fall.  So much so, that my previous ones bit the dust from extensive wear.  These are the new ones I've purchased.  They received good reviews (a necessity when I shop), and I think their nude color will serve me well with a multitude of outfits.  I can't wait for them to come in!

While shopping for the flats, I found this top (it's a vicious cycle).  I love poet tops.  Like the flats, these are also very versatile to mix and match, and I love the ones I currently own.  Plus I figure I can never have too many red shirts during Alabama football season :)  This top is also available in white for those interested.  Both of these items were ordered from Piperlime.  I love shopping at Piperlime because they always offer free shipping and free returns just in case your items don't work out. (And they have cute packaging).

As I mentioned before, there are two other items I've given myself permission to purchase should I find ones I like- a pair of leopard flats (I used my others ones until I wore a hole in the bottom) and a navy blazer.  I think they will both be great additions to what I already own.

You guys will have to hold me accountable on my shopping...or lack thereof.  I'm ready for the challenge and may even post some of my outfits as the weeks go by.  Here goes nothing...

Have a great day Labor Day weekend.  I know I will.  I'm ready to go cheer on the Tide!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right?

Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect.

I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here.

Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here.

The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and Auden LOVED …
