aquamarine and hot pink

While perusing Pinterest I found some cute orange and blue details you might think about incorporating into your wedding: Sweet invitations from Zee Studio (originally seen at a Mad Men themed wedding!)… Adding […]

Lily Pulitzer’s bright and colorful prints are perfect for beach and destination weddings, and they still have that socialite, sorority […]

sail away (+ guest post)

When you mix primary colors together, you’ll get what is called a secondary color like shades of purple, green, and orange. If you mix one primary color with a secondary color, you’ll get a […]

blueberry tart

Nothing screams summer to me like mangoes dripping from the trees around here, but if I were to live on the mainland United States, it would be blueberries. And there are few other words in the English language that I love so much as ‘tart.’ It has so many (sometimes naughty) connotations. So here, for […]
