Inspiration from Anywhere…Jackie O!

As someone who grew up in Boston when I think of the summer I think of Cape Cod, 4th of July and the Kennedy’s vacationing in Hyannis.  It’s inevitable. The Kennedy mystique has always captivated me.  And last week was no different especially with a Kennedy wedding taking place in the Cape, congrats to RFK Jr and Cheryl Hines! (side note: I love when celebs marry into iconic families).  But what wasn’t all over the news was July 28th would have been Jackie Kennedy’s 85th birthday.  Jackie was and still is America’s most iconic bride, our Diana, Kate Middleton and Princess Grace all wrapped up in one. She isn’t just an inspiration for brides on their wedding day but also for fashionistas all over the country, especially the east coast. In her early years, Jackie Kennedy set the tone for grace, glamour and pure waspyness. Can we ever forget her pill box hats or her green one shoulder gown that JLO later used as inspiration to accompany Ben Affleck to the Oscars (sigh Bennifer). Later in life after the President had passed away and she married a Greek bazillionaire, Jackie Kennedy Onassis defined New York City chic, a far cry from the demure young lady who lived in the White House.  She’s was and is a fashion force to be reckoned with.

What Jackie look has inspired you most???

Inspiration from Anywhere…Patterned Bridesmaids!

bridesmaidIn an age of Pinterest, everyone wants their wedding to be chic, special and gorgeously styled.  One huge way to accomplish this is with your bridesmaids.  We already know mix and match has been overly popular the past couple years (RIP to matchy satin bridesmaids) but how about patterned maids?!?  I, for one, adore this trend and need to see more of it. There isn’t a wedding style or theme it can’t apply to, modern, boho, shabby chic, preppy…there’s a pattern to match them all. If you already feel comfortable with pattern, try mixing and matching different patterns for your maids!!!

Whenever I am shopping for ANYTHING the first place I search is Etsy.  It seems like the options are endless for what you can find on, especially for weddings!  Some of my greatest ideas come from inspiration I find there.  Recently, Etsy vendors have been on fire and I felt only right sharing some of my favorites with you.  From wedding signage to wedding accessories here they are!

What are some of your favorite Etsy finds?

Inspiration from Anywhere…Poppytalk for Target!

Via Target

Target collaborations are what my dreams are made of.  This time around in Target’s series of Pinterest collaborations they partnered with Jan Halvarson, co-founder of the blog Poppytalk.  What they came up with is a collection that is perfect for a a night away glamping or a chic picnic.  Since glamping is no where near in my immediate future I can’t wait to use my Poppytalk treasures to watch Grease outdoors and host a picnic for my best girlfriends.  Singing a long to “Summer Nights” while Danny Zuko and Sandy hit their highest notes (we all know that what note I am referring to) on a huge screen outdoors will be even more fabulous than ever with our glamorous set up.  What’s even more fabulous is, all of the Poppytalk for Target line, with the exception of the camping tent, are priced under $25.  So, they only question left to ask is, where are you going to use your Poppytalk steals????
