Il Porticcolo

I truly adore London-based childrenswear brand, Il Porticcolo, which features traditional Italian designs. The shop is beautifully curated with the owners favorite Italian brands as well as features her own collection. I am seriously smitten with her winter pieces. In our house we are truly partial to her irresistible cashmere sets,  her gorgeous wool dresses (this and this are our favorites!) and these beautiful knit tops.

Currently Crushing on this Bride

From the moment I saw photographs of Moda Operandi's deputy editor, Tatiana Hambro's wedding in England I absolutely could not get enough of her look. Truly one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen. Her custom Barbara Tfank gown was the epitome of chic and her family's Victorian crown was {without a doubt} the icing on the cake.  And just when I thought I couldn't love her look more... I saw her after party dress. The Markarian party piece was an absolute delight with and irresistible scoop neckline, perfect puff sleeves, and hand placed organza flowers. Truly a princess bride. For a full look at her wedding head to Vogue.Com

La Coqueta Newborn Gifting

La Coqueta has long been one of my favorite childrenswear brands with truly timeless pieces. It is no denying that the wonderful founder of the brand {who is an incredible mother of five children herself!} knows exactly what every new mother needs. Thus, I was delighted that they have just launched the most gorgeous newborn gifting capsule which features precious cotton pieces finished with the most impeccable details. I adore all babies in white and thus this set might be my favorite, but I also cannot resist this darling cashmere set. You would certainly have the sweetest gift at any baby shower up with one of these!

Luisa Beccaria S/S 20 Show

I was seriously smitten with the Luisa Beccaria S/S 20 Show. From the classic Summer whites to the feminine florals and always undeniable ball gowns it was pure perfection. The models playing badminton on the runway was just the icing on the cake for this show that truly felt like a Summer Garden Party. The mother-daughter duo behind the label, are known for their dreamy evening gowns, but I love how in this collection they also incorporated more everyday cotton pieces that are just as gorgeous. The entire collection is currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

Becky Boyle Interiors

From the moment I laid eyes on them, I have been seriously swooning over the rooms Becky Boyle designed for the Southern Living Showcase Home in Nashville. It is no surprise that I adore the designer's impeccable taste given that before starting her eponymous firm she was the Senior Designer for Mark. D Sikes {another absolute favorite of mine}. 

I truly wish I could transport both this dining room and bunkroom straight into my home. From the Gracie and Lulie Wallace wallpapers to the perfect d. Porthault pillow accents ... she truly thought of it all. I absolutely cannot wait to see what this talented young designer does next!

Dear Annabelle

I have always adored sending and receiving snail mail and thus shopping for stationery is truly a guilty pleasure. I am seriously smitten with the playful yet polished new stationery brand, Dear Annabelle. Founded by a former editor of Town & Country with impeccable taste, the luxury paper brand aims to remind us all of the joy of the handwritten note in this digital age. My personal favorites in their first collection are their notepads and Je T'aime Notecards. It's absolutely 'delight delivered', darlings.

Brock Collection S/S 20

From the moment Brock Collection hit the runway a few years ago, I have been swooning over the gorgeously romantic brand. Their Spring/Summer 2020 Collection is a culmination of so many of the tried and true feminine styles they are known for while also incorporating some inspiring new silhouettes. The entire collection is currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi. I am seriously smitten with this gown, but would love to add this dress or this top to my wardrobe as some of the most wearable pieces in the Collection.

Sweet Romance

I had the absolute pleasure of working for a period of time with the uber-talented women's designer {and my darling friend}, Katie Ermilio. She and I actually met over nine years ago when I reached out to her to design my rehearsal dinner dress for my wedding. Thus, it was such a treat to work at her brand while she was planning her own wedding in 2017. 

It is truly no surprise that given Katie's gorgeous aesthetic and impeccable eye that the day itself was absolutely dreamy.  She and her love, Tylee Abbott got married in Pennsylvania {where they are both from} on Tylee's family's horse farm. From the stunning backdrop to the custom table linens every aspect of the day was absolutely special and utterly gorgeous. But, my favorite part was Katie's dress, which of course, she designed herself. Truly timeless.
