Have a wonderful weekend

I’m headed to Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach this weekend for a friend’s bachelorette party. Hooray for a fun and relaxing weekend with friends as we send off our girl in style! Have a lovely labor day.

Friday Find: silk-screened pillows

Gorgeous pillows found at Joom‘s etsy shop…

Wedding board contest

Emily is holding a contest on her blog, requesting help accessorizing her wedding dress. She’s wearing her great grandmother’s gorgeous lace gown for the ceremony and then she’s changing into a silk knee-length dress for the after-dinner festivities, and feels the dress on its own is a tad plain. I thought she should add some color with yellow shoes and clutch, and a simple green shrug – perfect for a cool California night in September. A vintage flower hair piece completes the look. If I could get married all over again, I’d get married in Asheville with a picnic-style reception in this ensemble!

Sale alert: J.Crew

Trying to decide if I need this dress, on sale at J.Crew, in “spiced mustard” – yum!
