st. louis weekend

Back in May I did a moodboard for my dear friend Molly who is getting married in November. She wanted to use the color navy and was unsure what to pair with it for the wedding. I choose to use purple and silver and she loved the combination. Check out the board here. Then in June I shared their playful e-sesh here.

This past weekend we loaded up in the car with Molly's mom, sister (junior MOH), and the two other bridesmaids and headed to St. Louis where most of Molly's family lives. Here is a little peak at our weekend via the iPhone.

We had amazing weather. It was such a gorgeous day to see such a gorgeous city.
 Kelly, Molly, Katie, and me at dinner.
 The awesome shower host copied the emblem I used on the save the dates (which I got from the fabulous Wedding Chicks) on a guestbook plate. It's going to look awesome once it's fired!
The favors and placecards were these yummy sugar cookies with powdered sugar icing. Our names were stamped on the tag and placed at our seat.
This photo does the centerpieces zero justice. They were gorgeous! Purple and white floral printed vintage place mats provided a pretty base on top of white linens. Glasses filled with purple candies and white tealights sat around a beautiful arrangement of a variety of purple flowers. I DIE.

Hope your weekend was just as lovely!

there's just something so comforting to me about a kitchen with white cupboards... something homey and cozy... something that says "you can paint my walls whatever color you want because regardless, i'll be fresh and clean".

for Megs

For my dear friend Megan who is looking for some DIY inspiration for her bedroom. I would love to see a crisp, cool toned gray on the walls with a bold 12" stretch across one wall with variegating stripes of fabric or even scrapbook paper. And for the another wall, a pretty mirror that mimics the floral pattern of the bedding.

Z I G Z A G fever

I KNOW. I've been MIA for a long time. And I hate it, really because I haven't been reading my feed either. These are the reasons I hate being so busy.

Anyway, everyone is all "Missoni for Target" these days so I thought I'd share the items I was able to snag before they sold out. My shopping experience was pretty pleasant too. I ran in on my lunch break and things were clearly already searched through but there was a good amount of options left. I did want to get that gorgeous cocktail that was only available online and the throw but no luck. In the meantime here's what I got:

What about you? What were you able to get before it sold out? How was your shopping experience?
