We've been planning lots of fun shoots at Ruche recently. Our latest feature, Ciao Bella, is all about fun and poppy sorbet colors. I loved that we put together a little ice cream cart as well, especially since we got to eat it afterwards! 
Here are some photos of the outfits I styled.

 Some of my favorite items from the feature are the , the , the , and the amazing

look book: orange creamsicle

April 25, 2012

I really believe that wearing bright colors can positively affect your mood. I always feel a little happier in oranges, pinks and yellows, especially when the weather is nice. With our trip to Hawaii approaching I’m planning on packing lots of brights!

look book: short stuff

April 23, 2012

It's finally getting to be short weather! These tweed shorts are favorites of mine but I never got a chance to wear them this past Fall. Since Fall and Spring are basically the same season, but reversed, I figured it still might be acceptable to wear them. We're still transitioning into warmer weather so shorts in a more Winter fabric are ok by me. 

top c/o Tulle, jacket J.Crew, shorts Sanctuary via Nordstrom Rack {similar}, shoes Jessica Simpson {similar}, necklace handmade by me, sunglasses Persol

I hope you all had a great weekend! I relaxed at my parent's house, baked a chocolate tart, saw friends, and started a new TV show {The Killing}. I'm excited for this week because it's my last one at work before Matthew and I go on vacation! Matthew surprised me on our dating anniversary with a surprise- to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary in Hawaii!! Best gift ever! Gosh, I seriously can not believe that it's almost been a year since we got married! It's been so fun and wonderful but the time has really flown by. I can't wait to celebrate our one year by relaxing and exploring the island of Maui! I think it's just what we need :)

I’ve got a case of the polka dots. I don’t think it’s too serious but let’s just say you’ve been warned. Dots on top, dots on bottom. I only need a polka dot skirt and purse to make it a full blown epidemic.

Raise your hand if you’re wearing polka dots today!

eden's baby shower

April 17, 2012

Last weekend was my of my best friend's baby shower! Eden is one of the sweetest people I know, as well as the most stylish. She has an incredible design eye, and of course she has her own event design company! Eden has a major sweet tooth {like me!}, so she chose a Chocolate-themed shower for her baby boy. So perfect! Every detail of her shower was planned absolutely perfectly. I loved all the touches of browns and blues with pops of gold.  I had so much fun helping her with crafts for the shower, and seeing it all come together day-of was the best. Here are some of the adorable photos her husband Zan took. 

Can’t wait to officially welcome Eden and Zan’s baby boy into the world! With less than a month to her due date I am soo excited!
