Up, Up, and Away

Nothing like some balloons to keep the mood light and airy on usually lackluster, stressful Mondays. If you're like me, it can be difficult to get into the full swing of the week and Mondays can be quite overwhelming. So it's the little things like balloons that can add a touch of lightness and fancy that can raise my mood. Childlike fun and whimsical romance never go out of style...

{Let's throw a party here, ok?}
{Wishing you all a wonderful week!}

Whimsical NYC Wedding

I love the color palette of this pretty New York wedding. The pops of the fun colors and sparkles provide touches of whimsy to the traditional elements of the wedding. Plus, how cute are the streamers and confetti?
[How gorgeous is that ceiling?]
[Ah-mazing centerpiece! Love the shades of pink and coral.]
 [I'm dying. So glamorous.]

[Love the streamers. Super fun and add so much whimsy.]
[The cake is my absolute favorite piece. So classic, yet modern and eclectic with the colors and candy accents.]

Friday's Fancies: The Cozy Side of Fall!

Friday's Fancies: The Cozy Side of Fall! Happy Friday's Fancies everyone! While I haven't had much time for blogging lately, I just couldn't resist participating with Long Distance Loving, since it's all about my favorite season - fall! This truly is a dream outfit for me. Not only is it wayyyyyyyy out of my college girl price range, but it is also wayyyyyy out of Arizona's weather range. It's still in the 100s here! (#whitegirlproblems, I know, but still.)

I'm absolutely OBSESSED with this Donna Karan cashmere poncho. I would love to cozy up to this in real fall weather and simply get lost in its warmth. It looks SO COMFORTABLE. I would definitely pair it with skinny jeggings. They look dressed up enough to wear out, but are still as comfortable as leggings! My bff Twindie swears by these Citizens jeggings - she says they very easily fool people for real skinnies, but are ten times more comfortable. Have to love those Tory riding boots and that ah-mazing Coach watch. Def adding that to the wish list.

So happy Friday's Fancies everyone! Can't wait to check out the other posts!

NYFW: Jenny Packham Picks

Such an elegant beautiful collection. So many girly, flirty dresses. Love the pastel, ethereal colors as well.

I have a feeling these will be red carpet favorites come awards season. It also really makes me want orange heels. Are you a Jenny fan?

Is it Fall Yet? Random Room Love

Fall has me loving cozy interiors made with warmer, natural materials. Very lodge-like. 

I could definitely envision myself in a big, oversized sweater, roasting marshmallows over that beautiful stove.

How to Catch NYFW from Your Own Home

NYFW starts THIS Thursday (squee!)! Are you like me, though, and can't make it to New York to see all the shows?

Thanks to Mashable, here's a list of some great shows you can livestream from the comfort of your own laptop.

Fashion Friday: Is it Fall Yet? Nasty Gal Picks

One of my favorite shopping sites is Nasty Gal (weird name, I know ha). Some of their clothes and styling are a bit too hipster/edgy for me, but they do have some great pieces when styled the right way can look sophisticated. Here are some of my favorite items for fall (more of warmer an Arizona fall) from Nasty Gal. While I probably can't wear these any time soon, I can still look right?
Draped Across Dress
Oversized Knit Sweater - very casual chic - love slouchy sweaters
Pretty Pleat Blouse - ah LOVE this! I'm a sucker for more classic blouses
Tiered Wrap Dress

Weekender Knit - this looks so cozy! 
Chelsea Shearling Coat - OBSESSED with this! Love the dramatic cut and the shearling looks so warm and comfy.
