There’s something so insanely romantic about pleated skirts in the palest most delicate pink . I’m still and always in love with pale hues & pretty shades of blush & champagne. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart so this morning was like a dream. Spent the morning with my wedding planner, Jeannie from DetailsDetails, at the breathtaking estate I will be having my wedding at. I was impossibly drawn to the parisian inspired landscape and was captivated by the myriad of beautiful things- the french chateau, the tall shrubs, the beautiful terrace,and the dreamy gardens…it’s the perfect mixture of relaxed & refined. Just like my style… refined yet relaxed!

HAPPY FRIDAY! Hope you have a lovely {long} weekend & it’s beautiful where you are!




This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

I love it! I always come to your page for inspiration on outfits – and I have a black pleated high-low skirt that I’ve been dying to style up… and this totally saved me! The only problem is my lack of black shoes – I am required to wear all black to work.

Still, thank you!
This is beautiful :)
