Summer is here! I’ll keep it short and sweet, because if you’re anything like me, you’re ready to get outside and enjoy it. It’s time to pack a bag, like the Rebecca Minkoff Ikat Studded Tote for example, and head to the beach! Wouldn’t the colors of this bag be just perfect for a patriotic getaway look? Happy 4th everyone!
Happy April! As the days get sunnier and warmer I’m always reminded that it’s almost Mother’s Day. This year it will be on Sunday, May 12th, so mark your calendars and start shopping for something sweet for the woman who taught you everything.
As an only child, I always look forward to this day to share with my mom. I consider myself something of an expert at planning special days for the two of us. She planned so many wonderful birthdays and special occasions for me as a little girl and now I love getting to plan things for her. We’re planning my wedding together right now actually!
So as an expert, let me suggest a few good ideas for Mother’s Day shopping. Wouldn’t this Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag be such a cute springy carry all for a new mom? And whether new mom or seasoned expert, every woman will enjoy the beautiful new pieces from Kendra Scott. And a word of advice, skip the breakfast in bed. She’ll end up with a mess to clean up!
Spring is right around the corner and I’m dreaming of flowers! I’d love to begin my spring cleaning with a garden full of tulips outside and a new set of bed linens inside. This Pine Cone Hill Watercolor Flowers Duvet is right up my alley. Crisp white linens dotted with vibrant watercolored flowers – so perfect for springtime. I’d pair it with the Arteriors Zoey Mustard Dot lamp to keep the colorful, bright theme going. I happen to love a round mirror over a bed. Especially one with an inlaid quatrefoil like the Regina Andrew Decor Lula Gloss White Mirror. What a cheerful room to welcome in the new season. Happy Spring!
The most romantic month of the year has arrived! Bring on the pink and red everything, the flowers, the chocolate, the excuse to send valentines and – best of all – the excuse to get in the kitchen and cook something decadent for someone you love. I’ve never been a big fan of the white-tablecloth-restaurant date on V-day. I prefer spending time at home, cooking something from the heart and skipping all the formalities of going out.
But don’t get me wrong, staying in doesn’t mean spending Valentine’s in your yoga pants. A sweet little black mini dress would be an unexpectedly romantic date-night-in look paired with bright pumps. And since you’ll be in the kitchen, I’d add the Jessie Steele cross stitch hearts apron. Whip up some macarons and you’d be the ultimate picture of loveliness.
Speaking of macarons, wouldn’t these limoges be the perfect gifts for all your favorite girlfriends on February 14th or any time of year?
