if the shoe fits (royal wedding edition), part II

I was inspired by the Duchess of York's Issa dress she wore to announce her engagement to her Prince.  Lovely and sweet, just like the happy couple!   

if the shoe fits (royal wedding edition)

We're inspired today by the stunning Royal Wedding and wanted to share our current wedding shoe obsessions. I'm loving this ivory satin peep toe from Kate Spade. The gold glitter, peeping out from beneath the dress, is just so lovely, as well as the knotted bow on top. Love.

oh happy day!

Happy Wedding Day dear readers!  I was up bright and early (3:00am CT to be exact) to take in all of the glorious Royal Wedding details.  More to come, but I had to post this stunning photograph of the new Duchess of Cambridge.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

oh, martha!

Our good friend Martha (as in Martha Stewart) posted this adorable craft idea and we are in love!  I've been searching and searching for an affordable tray to place books, barware, magazines, perfume, etc. and how wonderful is her suggestion to cover a simple baking tray with patterned fabric?  So easy and so lovely.  And you all know I love me some chevron.

something old, something new(er)

I love when things are timely.  So I especially love this timely post from Etsy about the "Art of ReUSE".  It features David Gobeli's idea for vintage silverplate fork place card holders.  Could it possible coincide more perfectly with Hillary's post about her old/new silverware?  Not only will antique silverware make your table look vintage and eclectic, but it can double duty as a place card holder! 


Seller BasilicusJones even has a set of 100 you could purchase for a wedding or (large) dinner party!

sun n' stripes

G has graciously given me free reign over the redecorating of his sun porch.  I cannot wait to start!  I'm dying to find some fantastic striped fabric for cushions to use on his bamboo furniture (which I'm planning to spray paint black).  For the walls?  I'm leaning towards a beige/tan/gray color...if that helps provide a visual.  Pictures of the progress to come, but here are some ideas from my mood board.  I love all the pops of bright color!

something old, something new

I registered for this classic silver plated flatware at Halls for my wedding - which, I adore! However, after receiving a few pieces, I decided to mix it up with some vintage silver plated flatware from antique shops. I think it adds charm and makes your dinner parties and place settings much more interesting.

if the shoe fits, part II

It's definitely not sandal weather today, but we're getting into the spirit. I love the two-tone color of these classic thong sandals from Sam Edelman. The pink and brown combination would go well with so many things in my wardrobe and are a comfortable summer shoe for work.

dc stationary

If Hills and I decide to take this blog-hobby to the next level, I think we will need to purchase this stationary from Sugar Paper for our personal correspondence.  It's like it was made just for Domestic Chic! Happy Friday, dear readers!  Enjoy your Easter weekend!

if the shoe fits

How wonderful are these Modern Vintage sandals?  I immediately think of a boardwalk, the ocean, and summer sun.  So lovely and will go great with both jeans and a sweet sundress!

ladies who brunch, part III

As Stephanie mentioned, I'll be bringing the sweet dish on Sunday for Easter brunch. My mouth is watering just looking at these delectable treats. We've had a special request for classic Monkey Bread, but I'm tempted to make something else in addition.

Cinnamon, butter, sugar - you can't go wrong...

chevron continues

Okay, this is too much.  I am slightly obsessed with this post from Atlantic-Pacific.  Can I have this whole outfit?  And accessories?  And nail color?  

ladies who brunch, part II

G will likely love the classic, retro, and always pleasing Breakfast Casserole that I've been asked to make this weekend.  However, I'm tempted to switch things up just slightly and lighten up the brunch staple.  Here are some thoughts for our Easter brunch...

ladies who brunch

Hills and I are working on our Easter brunch menu!  I'm in charge of bringing the timeless breakfast casserole and Hillary is to prepare something sweet.  Menus and recipes to come!

dress obsessed

Summer is around the corner, which means lots of weddings and parties. I'm currently on the lookout for some fabulous dresses. This one caught my eye on, and to be honest, I have not stopped thinking about it! It might just have to be my Easter gift to myself.

picture perfection

As soon as it warms up here in Kansas City, I'm finding a way to make/enjoy these delightful cocktails.

All it needs is a stripey-straw and a patio!  Cheers!

I want to live in this picture.  So pretty!  It's getting me in the mood to plan a soirée.  Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

if the shoe fits

Wishin' I had these polka dot Kate Spade rain boots today. They would certainly brighten up this dreary day. I'm adding to my wish list.

singin' in the rain

It's a rainy day in kansas city - I love this time of year. Although I'd preferably be snuggled in bed at home, I've got some wonderful tunes on and I'm working away. Here's to a productive Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!

pretty treats

How wonderful will these be for Easter?  I think these are too cute; and thankfully rice krispie treats take minimal baking effort.

if the shoe fits

I saw these adorable and romantic Dolce Vita flats while shoe shopping this week and I'm still debating if I should go back and buy them.  I promise this picture does not do them justice!  They have the perfect amount of sparkle and practicality.  They come in lavender (aka "blush"), too! Swoon.

piece of cake

How wonderful would these "Let Them Eat Cake" prints by Paul and Jordan Ferney be in a kitchen?  I love Jordan's blog - oh happy day -  and have fallen head over heels for these prints. I'm thinking I'll invest. Which ones to choose?
