Spring Home Accessories

Clothing in your closet isn't the only thing that needs an upgrade 
once the weather starts turning warmer. Your bedding and household 
textiles are another place that can benefit from changing out the flannel 
sheets to a more colorful, bright percale sheets and pillows. 

This Tocca Hand Wash Liquid Soap is my absolute favorite 
and is great for hand washing your delicate
laundry, as well as pre-soaking your bedding and towels. The scents
they offer are so lovely, and this set of 4 is a great way to find your favorite.

I have had my eye on these ASHA pendant necklaces and rings for a while now - (from when I was back in High School to be exact). They started with the astrological signs, but have moved to destination locations being featured on the mother of pearl ring and necklace faces - which include two of my favorite places... Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. They make a statement while being classic and elegant - similar to a signet ring!

{White Jeans}

It's almost that time of year again, to be thinking about white jeans! Personally,  I do not adhere to the "no jeans before Easter/after labor day" fashion rule - I live in Texas, how can one hold out for such a long time, even when the weather is beautiful and hot? I also cannot resist wearing my new
Lily Pulitzer navy and white print top with my white jeans - it's the perfect match! I have included
 a combination of crop as well as long white jeans below. They range from calf length to ankle
to bootcut, full length pants. Find your perfect fit and pair with a bright top.

Oldie but Goodie for St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! It is a wonderful excuse for us to 
showcase a Cole Design project we did a couple of years ago
since the bright green Trellis pillows 
add such a fun pop of color. This house is in Darien, CT and 
was such a fun project for us as we were able to include nautical
charm with sophisticated touches.

Fun Printed Tops for Spring

I have been having such a fun time finding 
new inspiration for spring and summer pieces. 
Lilly Pulitzer has really knocked it out of the park
with these printed tops. I can't wait to pair them with 
The elephant navy/white top and navy/raspberry printed tops
are my favorite and will soon be making a debut in my closet.

***Update - The Harp Wrap has sold out in the green - available in a really pretty cream and pink!

Splurge or Save - Embroidered Top Maxi Dress

I just recently ordered this embroidered top maxi dress for this 
upcoming spring/summer season. I just love the design and 
colors of these dresses and there is nothing better 
than a maxi dress...they're just so easy and 
look great when you pair them with
either wedges or strappy flats.  

Splurge - Embroidered Maxi Dress - $412

Mint Style

Happy Monday!
The color in between green and turquoise, 
mint, has such a soft palate.
We have been completely inspired by this image
of a chic mint jacket. Combine with gold or navy 
accents for a playful yet sophisticated look! 
Especially with spring on it's way, 
we can't wait to incorporate mint into our wardrobe.

Shoshanna Bridesmaid Dresses

Cassandra is having 2 bridesmaids for her wedding - 
Leslie and I! We initially thought we would 
go with a JCrew bridesmaid dress, but then when 
we saw these Shoshanna bridesmaids dresses, we all knew 
these would be the ones! We like the Carmen and the Sierra
two completely different styles, but the same navy lace overlay.  

The Carmen style reminds me of something Kate Middleton would wear,
but the Sierra is a little bit more flirty and fun. 

Of these two styles, which do you think we should choose?
