holiday lights.

Over the weekend, we got started on a little holiday decor.  Is it a bit too early for that?  Ha, maybe, but I couldn't help myself.  I sprinkled a few string lights around our home.  I also switched up the light we have hanging in our living room.  Day-to-day we have a white tord boontje pendant light, which I love love love.  I actually have a long love affair with tord boontje.  For our wedding day I may have asked the venue to change out ALL of the lighting so we could hang our tord boontje pendant lights (and a few of my fave gehry cloud lamps).  Eeeeekkk, was that going a bit too far?  Probably...ha!  So, back to the holiday decor.  We switched out the white for a gold light and I'm loving the soft glow it casts on our living room.  Now I'm ready for the weather to cool down even a bit more and to spend evenings relaxing in our living room amongst the lights.



happy halloween.

Hope everyone is enjoying this fun filled holiday!  I for one plan on celebrating by indulging in my favorite candy, Reese's...yum!  Just a fun little photo to say Happy Halloween from G and I.  We went to celebrate the rebrand and relaunch of The Stylish Soiree and Tinywater Photography (Milou + Olin) last night at the Argonaut Hotel.  It was such a fun celebration with some of the loveliest people.

holiday dress code.

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet, and I'm already talking about what to wear to your holiday parties.  But the honest truth is that the holidays are fast approaching and it's never to early to shop for that perfect cocktail dress!  I for one am in no need of a sequins dress (Did I really just write that?  I mean, sequins are always in need...right?).   Well if you don't have a sequins den nearby to raid, then I suggest you run out and scoop up this number.  The sequins plus ruffles plus raw hemming plus cutout back are kind of making my heart race.  Love it!




October is here, hooray!  I love love love fall and winter time.  Like, I really can't get enough.  The change in seasons means the holidays are upon us, yipppeeeee!  The holidays mean spending time with family and really does it get any better then that?  No it doesn't.  Our neighbors have already begun placing their pumpkins outside of their doors and I'm ready to start painting.  Are you kidding me with the below beauties?  I'm totally obsesssed.

ps, i miss you already.

We are back from our Fourth of July getaway, and I kind of have a case of the Mundays.  We had such a blast and staying at The Parker was truly ubelievable.  I've been there tons of times before (to eat brunch, dinner, and even coordinated a wedding there), but to be a guest was beyond amazing.  I swear, now I'm not going to be able to stay anywhere else (shhhh, don't tell my husband).  Here are a few pics of our little vaca.  I'm already dreaming of our return visit.

Of course I could have spent every waking moment at The Parker, but we did venture out.  We checked out the colorful Saguaro, and had to stop in at The Ace's Amigo Room.  We also ate dinner at the Viceory, which is impeccably decorated (it's also a dream of mine to stay there one day).

I kind of matched the sofa at one of the restaurants we ate at...ha!

The hubs is very excited for his meal at Cheeky's.

Me pouting because I'm not ready to leave.  Palm Springs is truly a magical little place.
