Wedding Weekend in Palmetto Bluff

This past weekend my family went down to Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina for my brother’s wedding and it was such a wonderful experience I had to share with you.  Palmetto Bluff is HEAVEN. Absolute HEAVEN. I can’t wait to go back with Andrew and Henry for a longer stay.  The homes in this enclave are bananas- almost Truman Show perfect.  A mix of cottage styles with lowcountry charm, I could have moved into almost any of them!

Every inch of the streets was even perfect- prom the street signage to the gas lanterns all over the property.

I’m Back!

Well, we survived our first trip with Henry- who did amazing.  But traveling with an infant is no joke, so I was unable to post yesterday. But tune in tomorrow with some highlights from our visit to Palmetto Bluff- an amazing place chock full of the cutest houses I ever did see!  In the meantime I leave you with this adorable shot of my little family from my brother’s wedding.

Fashion Friday: Sponsor Welcome- Tapered Collection

As of late I’ve been super frustrated buying t-shirts. It seems like every good looking one is made of linen- which is ridiculous because who has time to dry clean or hand wash a flipping t-shirt? Every time I’ve bought one of them I’ve mistakenly put it in the washer and dryer (because, you know, it’s a t-shirt amongst lots of other t-shirts) and it inevitably comes out a size more appropriate for Henry. There goes another $45. Cotton tees seem to be so see through you need to be okay with exposing your bra or need to wear a cami underneath- defeating the purpose of a t-shirt! So when I was sent a sample of a new tee brand, Tapered Collection, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted.

The Wallpapers of Marthe Armitage

I saw a little story is this weekend’s WSJ Magazine about a wonderful English wallpaper artist, Marthe Armitage , who has a cool collaboration with Jo Malone  coming out this summer.  The best part? Martha is 86.  And has only really gained notoriety in the last 10 years!  Talk about an inspiration for never giving up on doing the thing you love most, you never know when you wills trike it hot!  Her papers are still produced by her and her daughter in her studio in England (and some are now available digitally printed, all through historical wallpaper dealers Hamilton Weston).
