wear / monogrammed velvet slippers

A little while back I spotted these amazing embroidered loafers on Blair of Atlantic-Pacific's Instagram and fell in LOVE!

I was even more excited to hear that these customized, monogrammed loafers convert to under $80 (they are sold in Indonesian Rupiah). I am torn between all black with a gold monogram and navy with red trim and a gold monogram.

weekend / charleston


Tomorrow morning I get to fly home to Charleston, SC and I am SO EXCITED I CAN’T STAND IT! Not only do I get to see my wonderful family and introduce them to my boyfriend, but I get to spend time in such a beautiful place. I hope everyone else has great plans to welcome summer, even if those plans include simply a fun summer movie and a crisp glass of wine.

I can’t stop wearing my boyfriend’s Brooks Brothers cricket sweater with light jeans similar to this photo

JCrew Factory has a pineapple shirt. Enough said. 

These 60 rare historic photos are so cool!

Have a great weekend!

three little spaces / colorful offices

Good morning! T-minus 2 days until I’m home in Charleston with my wonderful boyfriend and I can’t wait!!!!! 

Until then, I am trying to focus on work. I spruced up my cube at work with a little inspiration wall, but how much fun would a colorful home office be?

wed / backyard ceremony space

I look at A LOT of weddings. Whether I’m reading blogs, scrolling through Pinterest, daydreaming about my own (not too soon, don’t get excited), or planning with my clients at work, I am constantly uncovering new ideas and images. It takes a lot to blow me away, to be honest. And then I saw this bouquet featuring my favorite color…

Which led to me to this wedding gallery on (of course) Style Me Pretty…and then to this ceremony set up…

Mind. Blown. Seriously, take the time to scroll through the whole wedding. You won’t regret it!

We’re down to a skeleton crew in the office while most of our team is at a national conference. Let’s do this.

wear / jcrew floral cove

It seems like every season or so JCrew puts out a print that I just can’t get enough of. Recently I’ve been drooling over the Floral Cove print and when I saw the pieces listed in the sale section, I high tailed it over to the store to try things on.

The dress was a GREAT price in store, but did me absolutely no favors.

I love the silk front sweater, but it was the priciest of the bunch.
So I took advantage of free shipping when ordering in the store and ordered this silky shell that I know will pair well with everything from white jeans to a navy blazer and pencil skirt for work.

wed / honeymoon packing tips

Style Me Pretty shared the most adorable honeymoon packing list and I thought it was a perfect thing to share for Wedding Wednesday as we head into the busiest wedding season!

Mantra for the week. But champagne might turn into wine…or ice cream. Have a great week!

weekend / donut day

Happy Donut Day!! How pretty are these from Studio DIY?!

Also found recently…

I bought these fun flats for 30% off the sale price and now I’m lusting after these (sadly unattainable) beauties.

The world as 100 people.

I always love Nancy Meyers’s movies and the way that the houses are characters in and of themselves. This article from Lonny is perfect!

Last weekend my boyfriend and I went to Vegas for a friend’s wedding and we went for an AMAZING dinner at Bouchon (I had the mussels!).

In case you missed it, Zosia Mamet on Why She Won’t Lean In, Thanks.

Thoughts on the new Pippit App? My handle is awinkasmile.

Have a great sunshine filled weekend!

inspired / cobalt blue

Lately I have been on a serious blue kick. I think it may have started with my purchase of these blue Madewell flats (currently on sale!) and it’s just gone from there. I wanted to share a few images that caught my eye recently.

wed / vintage ring

I love looking at photos of vintage or vintage style rings, especially if they incorporate non-diamond stones. They’re all so pretty and unique! This sapphire stunner caught my eye on the interwebs a long time ago and it’s certainly brightening up this grey day in Boston.

Follow me on @pippitapp. A new social media platform has arrived and I am intrigued! I’m not sure what users will do with it, but I figured I’ll give it a shot. #pippit
