One of my favorite shops on Etsy...Barn Owl Primitives. The signs are adorable and the colors, sayings and distressing is perfect!

Any of these would be such a charming detail as a back drop to any a guest book or cake table!

I heartPink these pillows today and everyday! The pillows by Cat Studio are amazing. Always a conversation piece. The most perfect gift to give - and receive!

Each pillow is hand embroidered (they each take a week to make!) and are truly heirloom quality. I have a few around my home featuring my most favorite places...

{our home state, favorite vacation spot and where we honeymooned}

Cat Studio now offers a number of other fun products showcasing this same beautiful geographical artwork. These would be the best keepsakes for any bridal party and guest gift basket featuring hometowns or location of the wedding!

I was in Chicago over the weekend...one THE best cities...and fell in heartPink with this amazing retail shop on Michigan Avenue.


A British High Street retailer rooted in vintage + fashion-forward. Where glamour meets grunge in the most beautiful way.

The dresses and skirts were literally breathtaking...


 Definitely some super cool options for less traditional bridesmaid or even bride's reception dresses...

I left with an amazing pair of boots and a handful of things on my wish list! (There is a dress that I just may need to order for an upcoming rehearsal dinner...)

A worthy stop online and an absolutely must-see in person. Stunning.

I am a bit obsessed with these hair ties (along with everyone else including Jennifer Aniston, Demi Lovato and Jessica Simpson)

The color palette and patterns work with any color crush or wedding party. And I adore how they not only look good layered but also on my wrist with the rest of my arm candy.



I originally was a fan of the basic hair tie but i {HEART} how they have embellished them with crystal.

...and their multi-strand headbands are gorgeous.


I do have to admit they are also the Perfect DIY hair tie if you are the DIY'n kind. I was actually able to make the basic ones easy-peasy as I loved to be able to pick my own colors and patterns. A tutorial is not even really necessary but here is a good one if needed.

The key is finding the elastic and embellishments. I suggest trying Elastic by the Yard and ArtBeads.com as they have worked well for me!
