Coming from a family of sailing enthusiasts, I have a soft spot for all things preppy and Cape Cod-esque! Plaid, stripes and leather make me happy.
Thus, I CANNOT seem to stop buying accessories from Kiel James Patrick as they are the epitome of New England summer to me and make me feel like I was just at the ocean.
I would love to add some of these accessories to a seaside wedding party...or give as gifts! Classic. Regal. Understated. Elegance.
Handmade in Rhode Island, Kiel James Patrick designs continue to reflect classic styling while combining patterns and textures. Timeless all the while perfect arm candy.

As we all know I'm a little balloon obsessed and what I stumbled upon yesterday is just fuel for the fire.
OMG. These are seriously more than adorable. Super-duper cute. Who would not be over the moon to get a happy confetti or feather-filled Bonjour Balloon at their doorstep?!?! Love.
Love the hand crafted tails that make them extra charming.
The balloons are 15 inches in diameter and last up to 10 days! So if you need a guaranteed smile - or a Yes! send one of these cheery balloons! I cannot wait to make someone's day.

I'm always a huge fan of typography art...so I simply adore this custom wedding vow art by B is for Brown.
What a fun way to share what really brings you together...
It would be great to have a print that reminds me and my hubby that I pack the groceries and the car, The Notre Dame Fighting Irish & Green Bay Packers are priority viewing during football season, we will always be adventurous, experiences are more valuable than things, birthdays are a big deal, be best friends...oh! we could fill a wall!
I love the idea of putting these by your guest book at your wedding and then hanging in your new home!

Nothing gets me more excited than a new way to wear your monogram. And being type and font obsessed, this is a match made in heaven...letterpress pendants!
These pendants were actually salvaged from the New York Center for Book Arts and have been cast, plated and hung to create the most beautiful and unexpected pendants.
I adore all of Erica Weiner's designs and originally stumbled upon her creations at one of my favorite neighborhood shops, Patina. Visiting her storefront in NYC is definitely on my to-do-list next time I'm in the Big Apple.
I feel like I've been hoarding cake stands lately...and this must be added to my collection. I'm weak in the knees for these!
And the color options are spot-on.
What a great gift...and the perfect accent to any dessert table! love.
Statement necklaces are continuing to make a statement.
And this bold vintage bridal bib necklace from All Things Tinsel in all white is no exception. In my mind, you can never go wrong with big enamel flowers brooches - especially when they are coupled with an eclectic group of pearls and rhinestones to create one-of-a-kind statement pieces.
I love my camera...but I also really my camera strap! As with everything, I like to make it my own - and this strap was calling my name.
Capturing Couture has cool and varied collections of straps - even for wristlets, extended lengths and guitars!
New Fall Collections are coming soon...the perfect gift for your favorite photog (or yourself!)
This is truly what I said out loud when I saw this stunning knitted creation. And then, where do I get it?!?
The color palette. The detail. Brilliant.
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE pillows. Especially those that are unique and personalized. I believe you can never have too many! And to me, pillows are often art & keepsakes - in addition to comfy-cozy.
Truly, Madly, Deeply is one of my favorites phrases. Passion in the simplest yet most romantic terms.
Ideal gift (even to yourself...you deserve it!) Check out more of the vintage-inspired designs by Betsy Jarvis on Etsy.
Hey Foxy! Move over hedgehogs, could foxes be the new owls?!?!
Woodland creatures are definitely showing up everywhere this fall but it seems the fox may be the IT critter of furry friends this season.
American designer Tory Burch has fully embraced Mr. Fox as the sly little trickster dots everything from shoes to accessories to sweaters. Her velvet fox slippers had me at the grosgrain ribbon on the fox's ear ...I couldn't wait to get my hands on these!

Tory isn't the only one sweet on foxes...
I love the touch of whimsy this character brings while at the same time a bit of preppy - even regal.
Nothing sums up this trending little critter better than this line from the film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox:
Mrs. Fox: You know, you really are...fantastic.
Mr. Fox: I try.
Yes, Mr. Fox, I feel you are quite fantastic too!
Holy Sugar Rush! These are sweets with swagger.
Vintage Confections took my breath away when I saw their lollies that truly looked too good to eat! Definite conversation starters.
It's so fantastic how they can customize them perfectly for your wedding - or celebration. Theme, color, monogram, size...
Here's a sampling of some of my faves in their Etsy shop.
Perfect as favors or even table numbers! I think I need to have a party! So cool. So Willy Wonka.

Delezhen has stunning handmade jewelry featuring vibrant, faceted natural stones. The design is simple and sweet and my favorite part is the hand stamped leaves with personalization.
