Bookshelf Intervention

Last year, my Papa and I worked together to design and create an incredible bookshelf. You can see it here from a Southern Weddings photoshoot that took place in  my house. Well, the bookshelf has become an explosion of randomness. I know that marriage is all about compromise, but good gracious, it's time I lay down the law. UNC basketballs and pipe and cigar accessories do not belong on a bookshelf. Amen? It's time for an intervention.

Here are a few inspirations for the bookshelf intervention...

Above are the guidelines, and these beauties are how I'm going to start the process. I adore fashion books and cook books. The basketballs and pipes need to find another home, stat.

The Coolest Wedding I've Seen in a Long Time...

Traditional weddings are great, don't get me wrong, but this bicycle/picnic/ wedding that went into a cocktail party with mini golf  just about sends me over the edge with it's creativity and quirkiness. 

The guests were told to "dress to impress" but to wear comfortable clothing. When the ceremony was finished, bicycles were waiting for each guests to ride to the surprise picnic reception.

Ice Cream Sandwiches as dessert!

I need a little help...

It's not even real wedding season, and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. The planning is going great, but my overall appearance is on the verge of completely unacceptable. My polished nails and blond hair are a thing of the past and I won't even talk about my wardrobe. Yikes! That's where you all come in!  I need a few wardrobe staples and haven't had a chance to look for those essential pieces. So if you could, share a little love if you have seen anything fab in the following categories

1. Flat Shoes that aren't $847374 and are comfy
2. Slacks...such a weird word, but I'm totally in to pants for some reason (instead of jeans or dresses) and want work appropriate, tailored pants like this
3. An awesome birthday present for my awesome husband
4. A humane shock collar for my dogs that won't stop barking at the mail lady! (joking, kind of)

Olivia Palermo for Tibi

Hate to love her but the girl can work it. I adore what Tibi has done for Spring.
