fall flats

It's 90 and humid but I'm craving fall weather. I think a huge trend for the fall is going to be menswear flats. I'm a huge fan of flats and they're a staple in my wardrobe.

I'd gladly sport any of these this fall.

School girl flats from JCrew

Quilted & Buckled from Cole Haan

Suede & Frills from Banana Republic

Suede Driving shoe from Cole Haan

and these aren't menswear but how cute are these? Go JCrew!

Are you a big fan of flats?

sorry I've been MIA lately! the summer has been incredibly busy and I've been a terrible blogger!

shower of love

Pictures from A & B's shower. It was a huge success!

My mason jar DIYs with beautiful sweet william flowers.

I didn't take pictures of the Bubble Bar. I'm so sad! But you can see the corner of it with the champagne...

The signature drink: Anne-gria white wine sangria. Delicious

The room!

View from above.

I'm sad it's over, but it was fun and I loved making the decorations!

Papyrus Paper

I really love paper.



Wrapping Paper.

That's why places like Papyrus and Paper Source are stores I get lost in.

I wanted to add a bunch of little touches to b & a's shower
(are you sick of hearing about this yet?)

So I bought some pretty sparkly paper from Papyrus and cut out different sizes of letters b & a.

I plan on hanging them throughout the room of the shower.

The only downfall? I was covered in glitter!

and finally I made a ton of mini pom pom napkin rings. aren't they so cute?

pom pom delights

I have been MIA lately and I am so sorry! This summer has been incredibly busy. I moved in May, started a new job in June, have been dogsitting for 2 weeks and am moving again to a new place in a couple weeks. WHEW. I have felt like a gypsy lately and it's affecting all aspects of my life.

But during this time I have been trying to focus on b & a's shower prep! I am super happy to show you how to make a simple decoration with tissue paper and patience.

Pom poms!

All you need is:
-tissue paper
-white covered floral wire

Take 8 sheets of tissue paper.

Fold accordian style in small, even pleats.

Wrap the wire around the middle of the tissue.

Cut the ends in either a point or rounded (for different looking poms)

Slowly pull away each layer from the middle.



See? Easy. Cute. Fun!

Sweet Summer Drinks

I am a huge fan of refreshing summer drinks.

Few beers rival Leinenkugel's Pink Lemonade.

It is refreshing, light, and easy.

Mix equal parts of Summer Shandy and Berry Weiss.

Dog Days

For the next two weeks I'm dogsitting for my Aunt & Uncle's dog, Keegan.

She is adorable and so sweet.

We've spent some time hanging with my parent's dog Ozzie

And enjoying long walks to Starbucks.

Seriously, she is so cute and such a good dog!
