Happy Friday!

Wow this week went by fast!  It's been a while since I've featured an Etsy artist so here we go!  Check out Wild Ink Press.  They're a husband and wife stationary company specializing in letterpress!   I don't have to tell you how much I love letterpress!  Just look at these beautiful designs.

Super Girly Pastel Pretty

Just for fun I thought I'd put together a super ultra girly girl pastel wedding idea board.  Chances are, any man would hate this but sometimes it's fun if you fully embraced your inner girly-girl!

Workwear Wednesday

It's starting to feel more like autumn, and while I'm sad to see summer go, I really do love the fall.  And it looks and though we'll get a nice lone one too!  So in the spirit of welcoming fall, today's Workwear Wednesday is centered around one of falls most well associated colors.  Orange! Orange is a color I used to think I couldn't wear because I'm a blond but I learned in recent years that orange works with any skin or hair color and looks great one you find the shade that works for you.

Tuesday Shoesday! + Pretty Braides!

linen mini wedges from {anthropologie} 

Heya!  Sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday.  I had to be out of town and was so tired by the time I got home in the evening...  Well any ways I'm going to make it up to you by not only doing the usual Tuesday Shoesday but also a feature post about the hairstyle I'm currently romancing over, braided halos.  I was really into fishtail braids for a while this summer (Game of Thrones anyone?) but not I'm going gaga over braided halos because of how super easy they are to do!  I should also tell you that this is a total designers obsession because my hair is barely long enough to get in a pony right now let alone long braids.  BUT if you have long hair you should totally try this romantic style.

I didn't realize how easy this style was until I watched out one of our MOAs from the photo shoot create this style on our model Sandra.  Its basically two Pippy Longstocking braids wrapped up around your head and secured with pins.  If that doesn't make sense just check out this great tutorial from Keiko Lynn.  She adds a 1960's style poof but you could do it with out too.

Here are some other inspireing renditions of this lovely style.  I have a strong feeling we are going to see more and more brides wearing their hair this way!

super cute even on a casual day!
