wed / head table



Just when I thought I had seen it all, Sweetchic Events designed this unique head table in a u-shape! We use u-shape setups all the time for meetings at work, but I had never seen it as a head table. I love that it allows the table to effectively be one sided, but also creates opportunity for conversation. 

What are your thoughts on head tables vs sweetheart tables? Would you give a u-shape a try?

I came home from work on Monday and A played this song for me and I AM ADDICTED. I haven't found it on iTunes but you can listen on SoundCloud here. It's "Vamala" by Champs. LOVE.

wear / travel to st. croix



If you follow on Instagram, you may have seen that A and I booked a trip for April to St. Croix! I've never been to the Caribbean or Mexico and I am SO EXCITED!!!! Not only will it be amazing to get away from the Boston winter (because let's be honest...it will still be winter), but it will be great to take a vacation together with nothing to do and nowhere to go.

Now that the trip is officially booked, I am itching to shop. I already have plenty of shorts, shirts, and dresses, but I could use a couple things that I might treat myself to...


Clockwise from top left: 
-A cute gauzy coverup to keep the sun off me
-A new black bikini since my old one fell apart (I just buy the same one from Old Navy over and over and love it)
-A turquoise necklace has been on my wishlist forever and will look perfect over my black maxi dress. This one is sold out, but I'm hoping they restock! 
-White skinny jeans for dinner (cute with a striped top)
-Gauzy beach pants on sale from JCrew. They're the most ridiculous thing on this list, but I love them for some reason.
-New Rainbows because mine are legitimately falling apart.
-A straw hat to keep the sun off me because I'm pale...and also baseball hats don't shade as well. Mom, you should be proud!

What do you think? Is anything missing? Am I being too over the top? Suggestions are welcome!

read / bright young things


A few years back, I read The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen and LOVED it. It's kind of like Gossip Girl set in the early 1900s. Through my Oyster Books subscription, I discovered that the same author had written three books about some young ladies in the summer of 1929. Not one to resist a novel about the Jazz Age, I dove right into the world of Astrid, Cordelia, and Letty. And I was definitely not disappointed. 

The Bright Young Things books are fun and easy to read. Some might call it beach reading...I call it blizzard reading. But if you're looking for something light to read, I highly recommend these. 

Any book recommendations for me? I could use a new one!
