4 summer parties you need to host

Loving these FAB ideas/colors for Summer entertaining.

The fresh and yet understated color palette of this tablescape creates an impression of an simple elegance, offset by the rustic and sprigs of rosemary, and by the warm tones of organic white peach tarts and homemade whipped cream. LOVE the table cover!

Contrasted tones of yellow and aqua, accented with subtle Navajo touches of wildflowers and an understated  feather build a color concept that feels both festive and unexpected.

Strong and yet not over-dominant, cobalt blues and crisp whites stand the test of an outdoor environment already brimming with color. Give it a handmade touch by dyeing your own table linen and pillow covers.

For lavish summery decor, manifest elegance with less established colors and shapes. Bold, feminine blossoms offset angular, tapered candles; pale yellows and earthy oranges allow rich shades of emerald and teal to appear at the forefront. Graphic tablecloth, emerald, and dont even get me started on that chandy, this is MY kind of dinner party! Recreate a similar table cover using lighter-weight canvas fabric and food/natural dyes.

hello monday

It’s been a while since I posted anything fashion-related. So what better way to start this brand new week than with a few looks and details I’m loving {and sporting} this month?

Layering is great to transform outfits from day to night, especially in December when cocktail parties and social events follow work appointments nearly everyday, leaving little to no-time to change outfits between engagements. My go-to details: neutral tones, sequins, tall boots, lace and faux fur, sexy backlines, infinity scarfs, cobalt anything, skinny pants, blazers and plenty of layers to keep me warm. What fashion details are you into lately?

Have a great week. xo
