We are getting sooo close, y’all! We’re tying the knot exactly one month from today, and we’re getting down to nitty gritty wedding details, here.  Our most recent find are the neckties that Mr. Lovely and his groomsmen will be wearing when we get hitched.

Mr. Lovely wanted something classic but with a slightly retro feel, and so we were on the hunt for a simple tie with a narrow cut.  After debating Ben Sherman vs. J. Crew, he scoped out some cool Penguin ties at Nordstrom Rack, and scooped them up.  They are each a little different but look great as a group, and couldn’t be more awesome!  Check ’em out.  xoxo

This summer, I can’t get away from bright, juicy colors — and this one has been my favorite so far. Chartreuse has gotten a bad rap in the past (thanks a lot, 1970s), but I love the way that it’s being refreshed and used these days. It’s not for the faint of heart, but if you can pull it off, it’ll almost assuredly brighten your days. Here are some of my faves. xoxo

Hey!  Did you know that I’m doing a new photography project?  It’s called a photo a day for a (third) year, and it’s awesome.  I’m honored to be one of seven photographers, taking and posting one photo per day, all year long.  We’re a couple of weeks in, and I gotta say — it’s more difficult than I thought it would be.  But the awesome thing is that a project like this makes you look around all day long in a creative way, and I’ve been capturing things on film that I would have previously overlooked.

I sort of feel way out of my depth; these photographers are serious business, and I’m definitely a fledgling when it comes to taking pictures.  But it’s a killer way to learn, and I’m so happy to be a part of such a cool thing!  Check it out by clicking here, and go back every day to see a new photo from each of us.  Here are a few of the things I’ve snapped so far.  xoxo
