Striping into the Weekend

It’s no secret that I love anything monogrammed.  “JAE” adorns most of my bags, t-shirts and even bandanas.  I had these striped bags monogrammed for holiday gifts this year and filled them with goodies.  I decided to monogram a couple for myself.  This one has “J+J” and I have been using a lot as my husband and I approach our ten year wedding anniversary.

The bag now comes in camo!  My eight year old son has requested one (with monogram of course) for some upcoming travels.  I may “need” one too…They are affordable and durable to boot.

I grabbed my striped bag on the way out the door for errands.  I styled the look by doubling down on both stripes and denim.

Camo and Monograms

My go with everything leopard clutch needs a rest once in awhile.  Meet my new neutral clutch in camo from Parker Thatch.  It has already been on steady repeat in less than a week. I styled it with a Liberty print shirt, denim and my orange driving shoes. I also love the clutch in this navy striped version.

The mimi tote from Parker Thatch in camo is definitely on my list.  I just need to decide which way to personalize it (white large letters, HAPPY or letters with kiss.) The totes and clutches are made in California and are so fun to customize.

Also on my list from Parker Thatch are a monogrammed sweatshirt in gray or white and a striped shirt.  Santa, I hope you are reading this.

Mani Monday – Ninth Anniversary Edition

J  & J forever!  Our wedding invitation monogram lives on.  It’s no secret that I love a good monogram.  We created this one for our wedding invitations and stationery nine years ago.  My mom surprised us on our wedding day with monogrammed champagne glasses. We added a little color (our favorite blues) and personalized our bedding and towels a few years ago.  I thought it was a tall order to turn it into nail art, but the nail artists at Olive & June are nothing short of amazing.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Ballerina” by Chanel.

Items featured in the photos include:

J. Crew Shirting Striped Top

J. Crew Gingham Blazer (on sale!)

J. Crew for New Balance Striped Pullover (on sale!)

Happy Monday!

Dreaming of Paris

As my son and I research our trip to London in 2017, I am scheming how we can get to Paris for a few days, too.  As Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.”

Like Audrey, I also believe in pink.  I styled my  pink Velvet Blazer, with my Paris T-shirt, pink Jane sunglasses, glitter heels and a pink (monogrammed) wallet all from J. Crew.   I added a pink Hermes scarf in keeping with the Paris theme and AG Jeans.
