Dreamy Offices

I am in need of a major facelift to my office space. Its been on the back burner since moving in... completely acceptable until getting engaged (!!!) and having to craft up all of the wedding goodies!

Here are some inspirational pics from all the greats:

Engagement Party Pics

I am still swooning over how fabulous our party turned out!
So amazed about how it all came together...
And so grateful to everyone who helped make it happen!
White and gray table settings with gorgeous pink flower arrangements.
With a touch of sparkle in the vases.
 Lovely details and delicious dessert bar!
More details to come on how we incorporated those fabulous balloons!

Thank you to Brooke Buchanan Photography who took these amazing pictures!
If you live in the SF Bay Area and are looking for a photographer... this is your girl!

Friday's Fancies: Winter Wonderland + Blog Swaps

I am linking up with Long Distance Loving and her Friday's Fancies link up. The theme today is Winter Wonderland. This week was super fun because Shelly from GS Lillian and I did a blog swap. Here is her fancy little number she put together for me:
Well, hello there!  This is Shelly from GS Lillian.  Jess and I have swapped blog posts today to share our Friday Fancy Winter Wonderland picks.  I'll be perfectly honest, winter is my biggest fashion challenge.  My uniform usually consists of jeans + turtleneck + boots.  The biggest choice of which is choosing what color turtleneck...black or darker black?

This week I decided to step out of my self imposed rut and see if I could spice things up a bit while still remaining warm and comfortable.  And since it's Friday Fancies, I didn't hold back...   

First up, a (cashmere!) hoodie.  I've been coveting the J Crew cashmere collection for quite sometime. For and extra layer of warmth, I just could't resist this faux fur vest!  I'm generally not a huge fan of utilitarian boots, but these are cute enough to pass for stylish, while remaining weather appropriate. Jeans are another item on my "not my favorite things list", but color them red and I'm sold.  Finally, to top it all off, some quirky Kate Spade mittens and an adorable hat

I love what Shelly put together! Thank you again!!! You can visit her site to see what I put together for her this week!

Happy Friday! Xo
