Thursday Love List

Happy Thursday, friends! Don't you love a short work week? Here are the wonderful items that made my weekly Thursday Love List!

Absolutely adorable pink Kate Spade studs.
Amazing neon statement by Jen Hoodenpyle. She has so many unique, bright, and sparkly pieces in her I'm obviously in love.


 This colorful stationary by Sparrow Nest Script is SO cute! Who wouldn't love to receive a note on this?!

Garden Party

After watching the Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric last night, I was inspired to put together a garden party look! You all know how much I love outdoor events, so you can imagine how excited I was when the piece gave viewers an inside look at a garden party hosted by Queen Elizabeth II--so much fun!

Bridal Shower Weekend Review

I had an amazing weekend with friends and family! As I mentioned on Friday, my weekend was packed with fun celebrations, two of which were for my lovely friend, N!

We started off the weekend with her bachelorette party...
And ended it with her fiesta themed bridal shower! I promised last Wednesday that I would share photos from the party, so here they are!
Although Sunday was absolutely sweltering (we ended up eating inside, hence the lack of table settings), we still managed to have a wonderful time. Now, the countdown to the wedding weekend begins!

Have an amazing weekend!

There's nothing better than a great tote for the summer season!

Bridal Shower Inspiration

This weekend I'm hosting a bridal shower for my longtime friend, N! She has a very bright and outgoing personality, so I (along with my wonderful co-hostess) decided to add a fun fiesta theme to the shower! Here are some images that are inspiring me as I'm putting the final details into place. Be sure to watch for photos of the end result next week!

Pretty Pillows

There's nothing better than a great pattern pillow to add a pop of personality to a room! With the perfect design and vibrant color, a simple room can be transformed into a fun space by adding only a few pieces! Do you have a favorite pattern that you like to decorate your interiors with?

Monday Pick-Me-Up & Weekend Review!

Happy Monday, friends! I don't know about you, but nothing makes me happier than seeing friends that are in, today I have the ultimate Monday Pick-Me-Up for you--photos of a proposal!

My friend C (you remember him, right?) had been talking about proposing to his girlfriend for a few weeks, so when he asked if I would help him pop the question I of course said yes!

After work on Friday afternoon I went to a local park and waited for C and his girlfriend to arrive--the plan was to stage the classic run-in..and it worked!

I first asked if I could take a photo of them for ATC. Notice C slipping a little wink into the photo...

And then C suggested that we try one more pose...

...and she said YES!

Seriously, my life is now complete. If you ever need a pick-me-up, just help a friend propose! Thanks for letting me be a part of it, C!

Here are a few images from the rest of my amazing weekend!

The first bbq of summer...

Pink peonies! 

Beautiful wildflowers from my mother's garden

A celebration for my grandfather's 88th birthday! 

I wrapped up my weekend with a fun night of camping with my wonderful friends--sorry the image is a little dark!

Now tell me, how was your weekend?

Color Crush

TGIF! I have a fairly low key weekend planned, which means I'll be getting in some much needed cleaning couch time. As I've mentioned before, I'm an absolute sucker when it comes to anything with bright and rich hues. With that in mind, here are some very lovely (and colorful) images from Showcase Magazine to send you into the weekend--Enjoy!

Completely adorable Tory Burch flip-flops. These would be so perfect for summer! 

Printed Thora Sandal | Womens Flip Flops |


I absolutely love this Loren Hope turquoise necklace! It would add the perfect statement to any simple summer dress.

25 UNDER 25

Over the weekend I was asked by a friend if I purchase everything I feature on ATC..and my answer was no! As much as I would LOVE to purchase every pretty piece that I see, my bank account (unfortunately) would not be able to handle it. So, today I decided to feature 25 budget friendly items for 25 dollars or less! Tell me, what's your favorite budget friendly piece?

Perfectly Peach

Peach is a lovely shade that I've always been drawn to, so today I decided to pull together a few pieces in this fresh hue! It's the perfect color for spring, don't you think?

Monday Pick-Me-Up & Weekend Review!

Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope that your weekend was as beautiful as mine! Here are a few images to give you a quick review of my weekend...

Over the weekend I also reached the scary exciting mark of having been done with undergrad for two years. TWO years! Where has the time gone?! It honestly feels like it was just yesterday that I was posing with my friends and family in my cap and gown. Thinking about this made one of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes (below) come to mind. I know what you're thinking, not much of a pick-me-up, but I think that some of the most inspirational moments come from times of reflection in thinking about how far you've come and how much you're grown. Have a wonderful (reflection filled) Monday!
