Cozy Sweater Party

Tonight I’m going to a holiday party with a Cozy theme.  =)  I pulled out a few things from our closet and also repurposed an old scarf for the party.

Here are a few inspirational photos for the theme~ xoxo

Happy 4th of July 2012!

Wow I cannot believe it’s already JULY!!!  WowzaAaa  Every year I love to make big plans for this day.  I don’t’ know if I could say that I’m super patriotic, but I love any reason to throw a great BBQ, have friends over and make a mean cocktail.  In the spirit of America, red/white/blue, and all things patriotic…I leave you with this collage of sparkles and red/white/blue!

Bow Ties for Men

While I was at home sick yesterday, I did a lot of online shopping…TOO much really.  I am almost done with buying options for my own bday outfit and now I need to concentrate on what Markel will be wearing!

I plan to get him this very cute Harvard Bow tie (he requested blue):

https://i2.wp.com/www.mysticriverties.com/custom_neckties/images/pi_19604.jpeg

I think we’ll be pairing the blue bowtie with a crisp white button down, long shorts, and boat shoes.  Markel wants to add a sweater to drape on his shoulders as well~ which should totally complete the “hamptons” theme of the night! =D

I went to Nordstroms to find some options for him and it was pretty intimidating.  Everything was perfectly organized by color and style.  Wowzaa

Bow Ties, Bow Ties, Bow Ties!

For my preppy Hamptons Birthday Party theme~ I’ve decided that I’m going to make some bow ties for the boys! (instructions here)  It’ll give exactly the right ambiance and look I’m looking for ❤
