Inspiration: Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner and these eggs are anything but average! I love the ombre look but I think my favorite idea is the countdown to Easter... How fun would it be [for kids or adults] to use them in a scavenger hunt and assign a prize to each number? If missed, check out my What To Wear: Easter Sunday and Gift Guide: Easter Baskets posts and my Holiday Decor + Treats board on Pinterest before Sunday for more Easter ideas. XOXO

Get The Look: Today Show Appearance

We were so proud of my sister for making it to the Today Show party theme finals but were ecstatic that she won! She picked out this textured tweed Rebecca Taylor dress with detail at the neck because she wanted something a little more fun than a solid print but didn't want a full on pattern [which can often read too busy for TV]. For accessories, she went with Gorjana mini hoop earrings that hugged the ear, three delicate bracelets in silver to match the silver detail on the neck of her dress and a pair of navy shoes to tie in with the navy waistband. The party that was featured was her Apple Of My Eye Party which she threw for my niece last spring... check out all the amazing detail shots from the party here! XOXO

Featured On... Bloom Designs Online On The Today Show

I hope you'll all tune into the Today show tomorrow! My sister, Jenny of Bloom Designs Online, was selected as one of three finalists for their best party theme in America contest and flew to NYC yesterday for tomorrow's show! We had a lot of fun searching for her outfit together to mark this special occasion. My family is so proud of her and are excited to watch her bright and early tomorrow... I hope you'll send some positive vibes her way! XOXO

What To Wear: St. Patrick's Day

Featured On... Shoemint "Nicole" Wedge

I was so touched when my friend and former boss told me that Shoemint's February Nicole wedge that was released during Fashion Week had been named after me! I love them to pieces and can't wait to wear them this spring and summer [and I'm definitely keeping the box!]. The wedge has a 5.5 inch platform and also comes in two other color ways [black and snake print]. If you're new to Shoemint, stylist Nicole Chavez and Rachel Bilson design a new collection of shoes for members of the site each month and they just released their March showroom today... be sure to check it out!
