Stella & Dot Favorites!

Spring is finally here!  These pretty days and warm temps are quite refreshing.  They make me want to shop for a new wardrobe of colorful shorts, cotton tops and of course jewelry!  I'm on a "no clothes shopping" stint right now, though.  If you saw my closet, you'd understand why.  I've decided to remix my wardrobe and use what I have instead of buying new and only wearing previously purchased items a handful of times.  

One way for me to easily remix and redress outfits is with accessories, specifically jewelry!  Good jewelry buys last a long time, especially if they're well made and I don't mind justifying a purchase here or there :)  Enter Stella & Dot.  I've purchased a handful of their products before and still wear and love them all.  Here are a few of my current faves for spring!


1.  I have this Starstruck Ring, and it's a great fun piece to throw on with any outfit...and currently on sale for $29.50!
2.  Because everyone needs a little turquoise in their spring/summer attire, the Rory is perfect.
3.  This is another staple of mine.  The Rebel Pendant can be thrown on with a casual t-shirt or a dressy silk blouse. One of my go-to's when rushing out the door.
4. I love this Eden bangle for stacking with other bracelets or just with my watch.  The little bling is a nice added touch :)
5. A Stella & Dot best seller, and I know why.  These earrings get me compliments every time I wear them!  They have multiple colors, but I love the green.
6.  These studs are perfect for an everyday staple.  Simple enough for every outfit but big enough to say "Hey!  Don't forget about me!"  These are also offered in multiple colors, but the peach is just right for spring if you ask me.
7. The Soho charms and gold necklace make a sweet and simple layering piece.  I think I need one of these with my sweet girl's initial :)
8.  The Elodie.  Oh man, the Elodie.  This necklace is even 10x prettier in person and has every color of spring!  So gorg.

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…

Christmas Trees-Part 2 (Rustic and Coastal)

Here are my other favorite Christmas tree styles-rustic and coastal (since we're moving to Florida).  Enjoy!

Use tea stained manila tags to create ornaments.  So simple, yet so cute.

This rustic tree has just the right mix of gold, silver and burlap...my faves!  The stockings are adorable too.

Christmas at the beach anyone?  Starfish make the perfect adornments for a coastal holiday.

Coastal blues bring this tree (and these presents) to life in this traditional home. 

This tree is full of more starfish and the hydrangeas and chartreuse color palette remind me of my wedding :)

Now to decide which style to use...or perhaps a mix of the styles is in order!  Do you change the theme of your tree every couple of years?

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…
