Today’s gorgeous images swept me away and inspired me to put them all together in one beautiful and romantic post. Inspired by my favorite color combination — soft blush and striking black — it includes all things feminine, black and white polka dots, sweet and sexy lingerie, as well as flower embellished martinis; almost too beautiful to drink.

This weekend marks the last holiday of summer, from swimming pools and days at the beach to dinners outdoors, we say goodbye to sunlit days and warm summer nights.  And so, before we wrap ourselves in cosy knits and search for tall leather boots hidden in the back of the closet, may your weekend be a beautiful whirl of celebration, for the end of summer is upon us. Wishing you a perfect one.


There is nothing quite as beautiful or unique, as a perfectly gorgeous wedding dress. Lately, more care has been put into the intricate details on the backside of bridal gowns. Your guests will mostly be admiring you from the back as you walk down the isle, recite your vows, have your first dance, and toss your bouquet.

So, give them something to talk about! Whether you want to show it all off with a sexy low back or want to glow with an ethereal look and soft illusion back, there is a gown out there for you! And trust me, these gowns are as gorgeous in the front as they are in the back.


On a personal note, I couldn’t not include my dream dress (below), so simple and sophisticated, yet sexy and dreamlike. This dress makes me swoon. I think Im in love ;)




The way something as simple as layered scalloped lace can create such a stunning effect.


Or the way the back of this dress is just two simple bows



Let your imagination carry you away, to the beaches of Brazil, Hawaii, Greece; wherever your mind takes you. Sailboats and nautical stripes, coral and bikinis… Let yourself be swept away, for the warmth and beauty of summer, will soon be fading into a new season.



Today, I enjoyed the cool breeze off of the ocean, stuck my feet into the warm sand and felt the touch of sunlight, warming my skin and relaxing my body and mind. I’ve been so preoccupied these days.  I sometimes share deep truths about my life on this blog, but I really try to make it more of a beautiful escape… for us all. It’s so important to take time to enjoy the simple things, to reflect and meditate…. life is simply one beautiful day at a time.

― George R.R. Martin

“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all of your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” -Golda Meir


Wishing you beautiful thoughts and sunlit days, for the weekend is upon us . . .

There is nothing quite as breathtaking and beautiful as this chandelier lined catwalk.  As images of art float down the runway, one shirt in particular caught my attention. Entirely composed of diamonds, it glided down the runway, catching every facet of light in the room, shimmering towards the awaiting flashes of photographers from around the world. Truly breathtaking, a stunning work of art.


Here, we love all style inspiration, from couture to the everyday woman.  But today it is all about elegance.  Beaded and silk works of art.  Shades of perfectly pretty neutrals, to bright accent pieces like fushia and red, all color is fitting for those sunlit days that fade into unforgettable summer nights . . .

Wishing you a summer of romance and style. xo


“Self-confidence is the best outfit, wear it, own it, rock it.”


A few gorgeously chic ideas and images for all fashionistas out there . . . Dreamy mixtures of fashion and a few favorite things. Diamonds layered upon diamonds and blush colored couture- truly fit for royalty- are amongst this collection of utterly beautiful images.  I find myself dreaming about velvet ribbon-tied heels, white bouquets of roses, sheer tulle skirts and delicate lace dresses, just to name a few. . .

Wishing you a beautiful Monday. xo


“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, and what is happening.”

– Coco Chanel

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”


After weeks – more like months – of travel, I am home.  And so happy to be where I belong.  What a beautiful weekend it has been… weddings, photo shoots, many reflective walks on the beach and the gathering of my dearest friends – over red roses, candles, drinks, hilarious costumes and most importantly, the celebration of my beautiful friend’s birthday. Today is church and brunch with close friends, and on this beautiful and bright Sunday, nothing could be more fitting or more evocative of the day’s mood . . .

Side note: We fall often, for the striking and extremely beautiful sights of flowers in photos. I want to encourage you to go out and buy some for your home, wether that’s romantic roses or bright colored orchids! I recently read an article about a study done at Harvard, showing that people with fresh flowers in their home are more empathetic, happier and positive.  I was having a hard day yesterday, so I went out and bought some flowers.  Now, every time I look at the bouquet by my bed, my mood lifts and I smile. Guess it’s true! Though… I knew it all along ;)
