something blue

Green is typically my go-to color for all things fashion and home, but for some reason I’ve been drawn to every possible shade of blue as of late. It could be because I’ve got weddings on the brain, or maybe even because Mike has managed to rub off on me after six years… either way–powder blue, cobalt blue, navy blue–it doesn’t matter, they’re all on my radar.

weekend recap

There was quite a bit to celebrate this past weekend as things started to get real in terms of the impending nuptials. It felt so nice to cross a few tasks off the list which included:

  • finally committing–or should I say, “saying yes“–to a dress (!!!)

  • finalizing our wedding party, which I could not have done without these two Etsy shops: Honizukle Press +  Label with Love

  • save-the-dates are printed… there’s no turning back now

Old Westbury Gardens

Personally, I love nothing more than exploring new places with nobody else around. Guilty pleasure? I think so. After an impromptu meeting with a potential vendor, Mike and I had the opportunity to do just that at the beautiful and breathtaking Old Westbury Gardens in Old Westbury, New York.

The shooting location for several films, Old Westbury Gardens is as beautiful in the dead of winter as it is in the springtime when its gorgeous gardens are in full bloom. I swear it almost felt as though we stumbled upon the set of The Secret Garden.

Christmas in New York

I’ve said it 100 times and I’ll say it 100 times over… There is nothing quite like Christmastime in New York City.

I was in desperate need of a good fix after spending much of the season in Charleston–albeit a beautiful city, it lacks any type of Christmas spirit–so spending the remainder of the season in New York was quite a treat. Mike and I merely scratched the surface during our 2-night stint in Manhattan, and despite our first attempt at visiting Rockefeller Center being a major fail, there was plenty of visual stimulation to be had otherwise.

holiday recap

Two weeks off may sound like a lifetime to some, but never has two weeks flown by so quickly. I made sure to make the most of my time at home by taking care of some business for the wedding, registering(!!), having a karaoke night with friends, going on date nights with my fiancé (which still feels crazy to say), taking a trip to the MoMa to view the Matisse exhibit, enjoying a beachside Christmas lights show, having a failed attempt to go ice skating, eating pizza and/or Italian food everyday, and spending quality time with family, Riley, and my soon-to-be in-laws (again, crazy!).
