I am unbashedly obsessed with a modern rustic wedding (...and this ridiculously amazing antler chandelier?!) So when I got a glimpse into Brienne and Andrew's wedding celebration designed and coordinated by Alicia K Designs, I was 100% smitten.
I'm not sure where to even begin as this celebration was in overdrive with charming details in the most perfect way. And wine country as the back drop?! Swoon. I love that Brienne and Andrew celebrated their love in such a big, beautiful way and it was so wonderfully captured by Kate Webber Photography.

Be Mine. URG8. Hugs & Kisses. U Rock. Tweet Me. Luv Ya.
There's nothing better than a box of conversation hearts from a secret admirer (preferably the chalky kind) - or a sweet token of love wrapped with a bow from your special someone. Ahhhh, swoon.
If you want to break away from the traditional candy or flowers, here are some great gift ideas that would make anyone weak in the knees...
and my personal favorite given to me one year from my BFF...
Happy Day! XOXO
I love Fashion Week about as much as I love ponies (which is alot!) It is definitely on my bucket list of things to do in this wonderful lifetime...
Not only are the collections, the music, the sets and the people watching full of inspiration and ridiculous creativity...I love how that same energy is captured in the designers invitations to their shows. Getting one of these in my mailbox would be squeal-worthy!
Here are a few curated by Refinery29 that caught my eye and could be oh-so coolly translated into an invitation to any chic wedding, save the date or dinner party. (Okay maybe not exactly the petrie dish by Mathieu Mirano but it is cool and you get the gist...)
Now if only we could all RSVP to one of these fine shows?!? In the meantime, think beyond the runway and jump ahead of the curve with invitations so chica!

Brrr....being from the Midwest and in the heart of winter, one skill i think everyone should refine is the best way to layer clothes like a Pro.
The worst thing you can do is add bulk...EEK! Who needs to look or feel any thicker...you just need to be warm and chic!
Check out this great video from FabSugar...starring an adorable model from MN (naturally!) But my most burning question is...where can I find all of these cute boots!?!
I'm in Salt Lake City this week for the Alt Summit and having the time of my life...it is truly the bee's knees of brilliant blogging and chock full of ridiculously talented, creative and beautiful people.
Looking forward to posting all my faves from people to parties to style to insight...let's chat next week!
I was instantly in love with the LilahV Modern Line found on Etsy. This collection of handmade jewelry features mid-century beads made by a European designer from the 1940's through the early 1960's. The designer had disappeared and the entire collection was lost for decades. Just recently the beads were found buried in a factory! (Crazy, cool story...the Jimmy Hoffa of beads?!?)
All of these original beads were painted on the on the sides with solid platinum followed by 22k gold for a gorgeous effect. The color pallet is ridiculously perfect with every combination.
LilahV. Vintage materials, modern design at its best!
