Um, Emerson Fry’s Fall collection anyone? Dying.

I mean DANG all the shoes alone are killer.

Pictured above, she just seems like a cool chick, no? As an aside, major sale on her spring collection that I showed you all a few months back. It’s pretty killer too.


Last night I attended Charleston Wine & Food Festival’s Launch Party. Great time. Though I did come home with a lil belly ache thanks to sampling a million different plates and drinks. I’m never one to turn down a chef… It was fabulous. Tickets for February’s event are now for sale.

Now I don’t talk about celebs much on here, but allow me this… Luke Perry and Jennie Garth (Dylan & Kelly) might be an actual item now??? Say it isn’t true. This makes me all sorts of giddy. I used to have a t-shirt with my picture and his on it and a huge heart around us. I was in love. They’d be so cute together, right?

And on that note — Happy Weekend!!

With the end of summer right around the corner, today I dedicate my blog to beachy art, stripes, and their fabulosity.

I admit I’ve never really had the gorgeous table. You know, like the pictures you see where everything is perfectly placed and there are fresh flowers, pretty books, the perfect sconce light…

 or maybe…

Mine is much more likely to have one of Lilly’s princess crowns and some stray cheerios. But after seeing some gorgeous carafe’s on pinterest, I’m a little motivated.
Or maybe some pink…

Morning :) I hope the weather where you are was as perfect as it was here this weekend. We barely came inside on Saturday. I got a double stroller (the Bob) and we have put some serious miles on that baby already. Stolled to dinner and everywhere else in between. Good stuff.

So one of our weekend projects was to start getting serious about our backyard. It’s in need of a liiiiittle help. The grass, the patio, a place to store stuff. It’s a big project. Have I mentioned that we have a pool? Not the garden style pool like at our old house but rather a more shapely “vintage” pool. It makes the design a little hard to work up. But I’m trying. And I think I’ve decided to go with the stone/grass look.

I love this photo above. We can find similar stones pretty inexpensively and the look is just down right visually pleasing. But I want the edges of the patio to kind of stagger some, almost like some sort of fell off. I know, it’s hard to explain and hard to picture, and I was having a little trouble getting Josh to visualize it. And then I found this photo and about leapt out of my seat. Yes, yes, this was what I was picturing!!
So I’m feeling good that I’ve finally narrowed down the patio design. Oh, and speaking of the outdoors. We brought a little outdoors into our family room. Say hello to my fiddle leaf fig tree.
Love it. Now I need to find a bomb ass pot for her. I’m thinking magenta or maybe emerald green. Anyone seen anything around? Do you think I could just spray paint one without it looking all diy??

My dear friend (and new neighbor!) Calder Clark is yet again getting some glossy love in Southern Living’s latest and greatest. She’s giving the midas touch to a table scape, southern style. And I want to dine there.

Mixing up collected barware is a favorite of mine. So much more interesting.
Calder dipped these julep cup vases in latex paint to serve as party favors. Don’t you love how they mimic the centerpiece?
And these ice breaker place settings are such a fun idea. Those are vintage French flower frogs that are holding each card.

Beautiful job, Calder. Such fun inspiration here.

You can check out whole spread in Southern Living’s latest issue story or here!

PS- for those of you concerned in yesterday’s post. The lil’ stroller was no match for Fletcher, he’s fine :)
