Since I didn’t do a very good job of blogging this week I though I’d let you know about some weekend sales going on now. I have such a hard time with end of Season sales because that’s basically what these are. Come July, Fall stuff starts hitting stores and it’s still 100 degrees outside, but there are some amazing deals right now so if you’re still needing things for Summer go snag them now.

Last month right before we went to Florida(I know seems like ages ago), I had the opportunity to spend the evening with Martine Harris, Chief Creative Officer, from Martina Liana Bridal Designs. Martine was showcasing designs from the upcoming line and the new separates collection, Together Forever. Martine works with and designs four different bridal lines all based here in Kansas City but sold throughout the world. The designs are exquisite and there’s so much detail that goes into each piece. I asked Martine where she found her inspiration from and she said traveling the world but mostly from talking to brides at each of the bridal stores she visits. Her mood board was to die for and full of Parisian silks and chiffon, if only I could tag along for that trip. My favorite looks of the evening were the two piece options which we were actually able to try on and model for ourself. I tried on three different pieces that evening but I kept gravitating back toward the two piece dresses. Martine and her entire team made us all feel like such princesses I am ready to go back and renew my vows just to be able to wear one of her dresses. We all walked away with some amazing items as well to complete the evening and I can’t wait to show you one of the dresses from Sorella Vita that will be delivered to my doorstep any day now.

P.S. Go follow Martine on Instagram for a daily dose of beautiful bridal inspiration and see how you can with a Chloé bag(you know I am all over this one).

WEEKEND MOMENTS NO.5

Last night the hubs and I were talking about the weekend and how we haven’t had one free weekend yet since moving into the house. Saturday morning we had some friends over for brunch before heading out to Boulevardia for the day. The weather was incredibly hot but thankfully we paid for some VIP tickets which gave us access to a shaded spot for the day. I still tried to wear something I thought would be comfortable and not hot in case it reached 100 like was forecasted.  London spent the night at her grandparents and they went blackberry picking, she was so excited about all the berries she found and they sent me this cute picture to show me. Sunday morning the three of us went to brunch at the hubs favorite spot and that night I made his favorite Hay and Straw with garlic and lemon artichokes. We finished the night out with Game of Thrones, which was amazing and I was so happy with the way it ended. Happy Monday.

SUMMER DAYS

summerdays

These hot days lately have me wanting to lay around and wishing I could spend my day lounging outside with a good book and refreshing drink. Not to mention the new arrivals at J.CREW are amazing. Don’t they know some of us just bought a house and are trying to redo our kitchen versus buying a new Summer wardrobe. Seriously though, I want all their new arrivals. I am all about bold prints and colors right now for the Season. And, this banana clutch is so cute but so not needed. Recently, I just invested in the beauty counter line and sunscreen and so far am very happy with the results and the fact it’s all non toxic. We have been thinking about our Summer bucket list this past week and I am happy to say picnics were high up on the list providing it’s not sweltering hot for the next three months. By the way, I had a completely different post planned for today but when I saw the new J.CREW arrivals that was all I could think about.
