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.

Boutique of the Week: {satchel.}

“We make leather goods. That’s right. A couple of girls, a few industrial sewing machines, and a usually messy workshop in the back of our cute boutique.”

On a recent day trip down to Savannah, I managed to squeeze in a quick–yet necessary–visit to Satchel., a sweet little boutiqe where I wound up finding a keychain to replace the raggedy one I’ve been sporting for 10+ years.

big day dancing shoes

As somebody with a bit of a shoe addiction–just ask my parents who helped me unload boxes upon boxes of shoes upon moving to Charleston–it may seem shocking that I am 95% sure that I will not be purchasing a brand-new pair of shoes for my wedding day. My goal is to be comfortable by avoiding the dreaded blisters from breaking in a new pair of shoes, and if that means that my shoes may wind up having to be my “something old“–and/or something blue–so be it.

If I were to purchase myself a shiny new pair of shoes for my wedding day, though, these would all certainly be in the running…

After spending two summers in Charleston, I have quickly realized that I am living in the tropics.

Summers in a southern coastal city consist of dense humidity, soaring temperatures, and torrential rain–making for the most lush gardens, trees, and grasses. So it’s no surprise that my seasonal obsession with palms is simply fashion imitating life.
