↑ Dripping Dew Necklace ↑ Gold Dust Chemise But first, a story… Over the weekend, the boy and I went into town and had some breakfast, because eating’s important.  As we were walking back, we saw on our right this adorable little dessert table set up on the sidewalk.  It was a tiny little bake [...]

REAL WEDDING ❦ Louisa + Justin ~ Bali, Indonesia ❦ Sloan Photographers

REAL WEDDING ❦ Louisa + Justin ~ Bali, Indonesia ❦ Sloan Photographers

THIS WEDDING = MAXIMUM AWESOMENESS.  And, in my opinion, a hot pink/fuchsia fête has never looked so good. Seriously, when I saw this wedding by Matt and Angie of Sloan Photographers, I wanted to do the Homer Simpson running around in a circle on the floor dance.  Because the beauty, the colors, the details… EVERYTHING [...]

REAL E-SESSION + DIY WEDDING LOVE ❦ Stacey + Chris ❦ Anthro Inspired by Simply Bloom Photography

I dropped by Anthropologie two nights in a row last week, and while my wallet is pissed off, my hypothalamus is giving me a head massage.  It was exhilarating, like shopping so often is – especially since I never go shopping anymore (NO TIME).  I was like a squirrel but with clothes, storing up for [...]

BRIDAL HEADPIECE LOVE ♡ I want all of these. I’m not kidding.

Lo Boheme The love I have for these bridal accessories is comparable to that which I hold for my unborn child.  (Don’t have one of those yet so I probably don’t know the true meaning of a statement like that, but I’m still confident that I’ve drawn an appropriate parallel.) This is not only a [...]

Watch this and try not to be cheered up…

A rainstorm just passed.  It made me think of something I love. They went to Columbia, by the way.   Woot woot, Lions!  One day you’ll win a championship… it has been painfully elusive, I know, but stick with it!

RECEPTION DRESS LOVE ♡ { Sarah Seven } Skyyyy rockets in flight, swisssss dot delight!

In. Love. This is my perfect reception dress.  PERFECT.  BAR NONE.  (As far as today goes.) … And I know that title was Lame with a capital You Are a Dorkus, but I’m in a lame state of mind.  And I recently watched Anchorman for the 40th time.  So that’s what that does. By the [...]

E-SESSION BEAUTY ❦ kissin’ in the water ❦ Jose Villa Photography

I love Jose Villa and everything he ever does at any time with his camera.  But what makes this shoot extra special for moi is the fact that I also love rompers, 50s bathing suits AND all over wetness in my photography.  Ehhem, all over EXTERNAL wetness.  No that doesn’t make it sound any less [...]

Remember that fit I said I was having over an upcoming blog post?  Well, here’s the culprit.  That is, aside from the Nutella which a dear friend so helpfully pointed out was contributing to the twitches.  Now’s as good a time as any to admit that I was essentially free-basing Nutella for the better half [...]

INSPIRATION BOARD LOVE | “Really Ridiculous” Wedding Eye Candy. Oh How I ♡ All of These…

During a sweet little stroll through Style Me Pretty‘s Style Circle, I found what my little brother commonly refers to as “really ridiculous.” Roughly translated from guyspeak, really ridiculous is defined as anything that is overwhelmingly beautiful and/or ornate… almost over the top, but not… just perfectly stunning to the fullest.  Ok, that’s my best [...]
