{flower power diy}

a few weeks ago, i spent a little diy time with my mom. what better summer project than to make a flower crown? after getting some pinterest inspiration, we took a trip to the craft store to pick out some flowers.
i wanted to make one with a vintage, boho feel, so i picked blooms in cremes, yellows, and oranges. i threw in a few baby pink roses at the end to round out the look.
flower wreaths are so simple to make... all it takes is a headband, a few flowers, and a glue gun!

aren't summer projects fun?

dress {h&m} shoes {target} purse {kate spade} flower wreath {vintage}

oh what a day. last week, my best friend and i made a little trip to beverly hills for an open house party at BHLDN. the evening was gorgeous. we sipped champagne and nibbled on macarons while looking at their collection of beautiful wedding gowns. the whole event was such a treat. my dear friend hannah and i decided that the occasion called for the perfect outfits, so i was fortunate enough to borrow a vintage flower wreath from my mom. she made the piece from antique flowers from my great grandmother, which made it even better! 

with my flower crown and baby doll dress, i felt like a princess [the dress was borrowed from my best of course].  it's always a treat to get all dolled up, and what better reason than for an evening in beverly hills!

c'est la vie


well hello there. as you may have guessed... i am very late to posting these pictures. after leaving europe, i got so caught up with holidays and school and life that i completely forgot about our weekend in paris. our europe 2012 adventure wouldn't be complete without that amazing thanksgiving weekend.

i miss this place so dearly. walking around with pain au chocolat, mingling in the open markets, and sipping champagne beneath the eiffel tower all seems like a dream... elliot and I  even avoided transportation as much as possible in order to walk the streets, trying to soak up every part of the city. my favorite part: seeing the eiffel tower from every spot in the city. and yes, the tower is as beautiful as it seems in pictures. ahhh... i can't wait to go back. hopefully it won't be too long!
