{#1} FUN, PLAYFUL & PINK VALENTINE’S! | Can I Haz Her Wardrobe, Please? | By Jennifer Sullivan Photography

Happy February 14th, lovelies!  Ooooohhhh I’m so excited about today, and not just because Honey and I have plans to engage in dinner, dessert and coitus, in that order.  That’s part of it, the excitement– but it’s also because I have totally-not-literally TONS of Love Day inspiration that I know your retinas will DIE OVER.

#2: PINK PARTY INSPIRATION | If you’re lucky, your sister is a wedding stylist! | By JCG Events + Serendipity Studios

Hello, lovers.  Because this is a starlet-inspired bridal shower and the carpet is less red and more hot pink, I seriously considered naming this feature “Walking the *Pink* Carpet: Bridal Shower Inspiration for the Stars In All of Us.”  I am NOT KIDDING you.  ’Course, almost as quickly as the idea came to me, I realized it was waaaaay way way way waaaaaaay too suggestive a title.  I mean, even for someone like *me*.  So, there you go.  That’s how that went.  Right… right, ok, moving right along.

CHIC CORAL + GREY WEDDING | “Plan for a MARRIAGE not just a WEDDING.” | Antique Maps, Sparkly Brooches, and The Importance of Chemistry in a Relationship…

I am shocked – SHOCKED – that it is already Friday, people.  Oh, sorries, happy afternoon, everyone!  I forgot to say that.  Ok but seriously WHERE DID THIS WEEK GO.  So weird.  Feels like Wednesday to me.  Though that could just be because I’m in the mood to hump.  So…… yeeeeaaaaaahhhhh ok moving on.  I hope you’ve had a good week.  A nice, full week.

Before I get into it, let’s just telekinetically transmit a massive {Continue reading…}

REAL WEDDING | Joe + Jennifer at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center | In Lady Gaga’s words… JUST DANCE.

Ok.  I think I should warn you about two things:

1) This wedding is AMAZEBALLS.

2) I’m a ball of mush at this point.  Seriously, if you could see me right now, you’d probably be like, “Whoa, she looks like she’s been crying for three days.“  {Continue reading…}

FASHION IMPOSSIBLE | FOUND IT! | A David’s Bridal gown I’d wear + bridesmaid pairings in grey/neutral tones

So, our little Pixel & Hank giveaway got off with a bang yesterday, and we seriously can’t wait to see who wins next week!  I love giveaways that give you your pick of whatever you want in a store.  Seriously, aren’t they just the best?  We all have specific taste, and what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another.  So, you get to pick.  Yeehaw!  Awesomesauce.

Moving right along – I’m pretty freakin’ excited about today, and I think you might have a clue as to why.  Can you guess?  I probably gave it away in the title, actually yeah I definitely gave it away in the title, so forget it.  No points for guessing, it’s obvs.  It’s time for yet another installment of one of our favorite series on TKB… {Continue reading…}

Inspiration Board: Yellow & Grey Amount to a Bright, White, Sunshiny Day!

About a year ago, as we were walking the streets of lower Manhattan on our way to lunch, future hubby drew my attention to a brand new residential high-rise on our left.  It was a very modern structure, and only two colors coated its walls, which were made entirely of brick.  The colors?  Grey and yellow.  The building was unlike any I had seen before it.  There was no symmetry in its design or palette, and so yellow was applied seemingly at random.

He asked me what I thought of the color-pairing, which, he told me, was the newest thing in the way of architectural color schemes.  I certainly had an opinion on that, but my immediate reaction was to wonder during which football game this topic was discussed.  Really?  You know this how?  The random bits of trivia that fall out of his mouth never cease to amaze me.  

The reaction I voiced was to the color pairing.


It was a guttural response, and it was strong.  I could not stand it.  

Fast forward to just under a year later… 

LOVING grey and yellow!  It’s so odd how our tastes evolve, right?  

For example, about five years ago, this became totally appetizing to me… 

mmm mmm good ;)

Cook them up in a little chicken broth and I’m a happy camper.  So yeah, it’s weird how our tastes evolve.

“But TKB,” you might say, “not one inspiration board does true love make!”  And you’re right… it takes two.  Here’s the other one for your reference.  

Thinking about doing up your day in details of yellow and grey?  Here’s today’s inspiration board, hope it’s inspiring!  Below it, I’ve included a bunch of wedding-worthy Etsy finds that are sure to give your wedding that most wonderful wow factor.

Inspiration Board: Yellow, White, Grey & Bordeaux

The seasons are changing.  It’s dreary, grey and a bit bare outside today, with yellowed leaves snapping off their trees and coasting on the brisk winds that took them.  It begs the question here at tKB: sad, cold day… or uniquely inspiring color palette?  The latter, of course!

I worked up the below after some lingering stares through my window…

Interesting how a brisk fall landscape brought about what I deem to be a divine marriage of stark grey shades and soft, buttery colors that are nothing short of ideal for a summertime wedding party!
