A Marysia Must-Have

 I leave for a trip to Hawaii in a little less than two weeks ... and thus I have had swimwear on my mind. You all know well, that I am quite a fan of Marysia and I couldn't be more smitten with one of their newest Resort designs, the French Gramercy Peplum Maillot (also available here). I would most certainly be wearing it in their perfect peony pink colorway in Hawaii (if I didn't have a baby bump!). However, I love it so much I am thinking I may still need to purchase it now to save for the future. I also adore this and this from their latest line and how darling is this for little ones?

Markarian

I have recently been delighted to discover luxury women's ready to wear label, Markarian. The brand, which focuses on overtly feminine festive frills, was founded just last year by designer Alexandra O'Neill. For a glimpse into the designer's lifestyle, you must take a peek at her gorgeous New York apartment, recently featured on Vogue.Com. I absolutely adore the unique fabrications she uses in her pieces (... and would love to own this dress!). The line is currently available to shop on Moda Operandi.

Skincare I'm Smitten With

 
As a Christmas gift, I was given Bobbi Brown's Extra Glow Skincare Set and I cannot even begin to tell you how smitten I am with the products! There is nothing I love more than glowing, illuminated skin and when I put these products on in the morning I don't even feel like I need any make-up they leave me looking so refreshed (even though I'm exhausted!). The Illuminating Moisture Balm gives you that perfect dewy glow. While the Eye Repair Cream truly works wonders targeting all the things you don't want to see (fine lines, dark circles, and wrinkles), brightening your eyes instantly. Lastly, the Lip Tint (in Bare Pink) leaves your lips both buttery soft and with the perfect hint of pink. 

I am already thinking of placing a re-order to ensure I don't run out of my new must-haves!

Dreamy Garden Wedding

I came across this dreamy garden wedding on Over the Moon and my breath was taken away, not only by the beauty but the story behind it. You would never guess by looking at it at that the bride found out the week of her wedding that it would need to be relocated due to the terrible wildfires in Napa county. Fortunate enough to have a dear family friend offer the garden at her home in Atherton, the couple relocated their big day. It is truly no surprise that it went off without a hitch as this wedding had so many of my industry favorites working behind the scenes ... from wedding planner, Laurie Aarons to event designer, Mindy Weiss, to calligrapher and illustrator Stephanie Fishwick. What a truly magical day!

Molly Moorkamp

I recently discovered custom womenswear designer, Molly Koorkamp and to say I am seriously smitten is an understatement. Her classic cocktail pieces are truly exquisite while simultaneously packing the perfect playful punch (ie. this skirt and these gowns ... yes please!). It is no surprise that she is a true talent after designing for Ralph Lauren and holding apprenticeships at Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa, and Milly. She is one to watch. You are welcome, darlings!

Entertaining Inspiration

 
Happy New Year, darlings! What a better way to kick off the New Year than with some beautiful entertaining inspiration? (... if you are not too partied out!). I could not help but share this simply stunning tablescape created by Nicola Bathie McLaughlin (if you don't already follow her on instagram, you most certainly should!). Her use of baby's breath as the centerpiece is truly genius. What an absolutely gorgeous and affordable way to decorate your table this Spring!

Hill House Home's New Home

 
As if I couldn't love luxury linen label, Hill House Home,  anymore than I already do ... the brand just opened it's first store on Bleecker St. in New York and I am ready to move in. A collaboration between the beauty and brains behind the brand, Nell Diamond and interior designer, Martin Brule, the finished product is simply stunning. From the irresistible wall paper, to hand-placed ribbon trim, to serene color palette and fresh linens... I am seriously smitten. Be careful, if you visit you just might want to stay a while.

Darlings, I recently discovered the answer to all your festive flat dreams for the holiday season. These beauties (along with these and these) are fabulous, festive and even better ... won't break the bank! I was very pleasantly surprised to see that Ann Taylor has seriously stepped up their shoe game .. who knew?! You can find me wearing these all season long. I love having a flat option to wear to the endless amount of holiday fetes... and your feet will thank you! (no aching at the end of the night!)

Owned and curated by, Laura Vinroot Poole, Capitol carries some of the most exclusive and exquisite pieces you cannot find anywhere else. They also host some of the most gorgeous parties and trunk shows (see above!). For those of us who cannot quickly get to Charlotte, we are in luck as they recently relaunched their beautiful website, making it easier than ever to shop. Happy Shopping!
