Maybe it’s that’ I just re-watched 500 Days of Summer and fell in love with it (and Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe) all over again, but I’m loving vintage these days. Mixing it with contemporary pieces… I just love it. Plus it doesn’t hurt that I love just about everything from every era gone by. (Except maybe the 80’s. I lived through that the first time and somehow it’s just not as fun the second time around. Anyway, I’ve been inspired and I’ve been browsing Etsy, where else, for some seriously amazing pieces that I need to have. I bought a beautiful pair of vintage earrings from Belle’s Booty yesterday. See below. Side note- She’s awesome, and her stuff is great!

I also bought these from Etsy seller Country at Heart.

Oh. my god.

I’ve died.

Seriously.

I cannot explain how much I adore Merrilee Liddiard’s whole entire world.

I love this so much that my whole entire WED Favorites post today, is all about her.

My friend Shauna who works with me in my “real life day-time job” sent me this magical link, of Merilee, who moonlights as a pretty amazing illustrator.

I clicked on the link, where I subsequently died.

Immediately.

Look. Not many people these days can pull off amazingly crafty and cool well. Ok so I don’t even know where to start. First, her illustrations are amazing. Her line drawings of couples are my absolute fave, WHICH, she has parlayed into super fab wedding gifts. Seriously how awesome is that? Best wedding gift ever. She even has an ETSY STORE! Hooray! I love Etsy.

Josh & Lauren

Gemma & James

This photo was just after she gave her best friend Angie’s husband Jonathon a sneak peak at their wedding gift- a customized portrait. The actual portrait is below.

Also, and I don’t know if miss Merilee would do this, but it’s probably worth asking if Save the Date’s are possible as well with these super fab couple drawings.

Ok moving on. So little to see, with so much time. Strike that. Reverse it.

Fabulous hostess she is. Check out this Moody Mod Tea time party she threw, with all the amazing details.

Moody Mod Tea Time

Ready… the tablecloth is Ikea fabric, and the fabric banner is all vintage fabric she sewed together herself. Love.

But the absolute best part… is these crazy invitations. DIY- Easy peezy.

Bananas.

Moody Mod Tea Time Invitations

Cut out a little fabric tape, and sewing a stitch across the invite. Plus it doesn’t hurt it your everyday handwriting is this amazing…

Ok so clearly I think Merilee’s work is insanely amazing. She’s also super fabulous, and her husband and two boys are totally charming and vintage. I love it. Check out all of her amazing work at her blog here, and her illustrators work here.

My dear friend Katie and her boyfriend of… a very long time- we’ll call it over ten years for our purposes- got married as only they could- in a beautifully rustic setting in rural New Hampshire. I affectionately refer to this wedding as the “The Wedding in the Woods,” because that’s what it was, and it perfectly fit Katie and Chris’s laid back personalities.

Katie and Chris chose a beautiful camp on Lake Winnipesaukee for their wedding, which was casually chic, just like the them. While Mother Nature had  other plans,the little bit of rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. These amazing photos come to us from photographer Kari  Herer, who not only photographs amazingly beautiful things, she also creates them. Check out her Etsy Shop too!

Here’s an early look at some of Kari’s amazing images. More to come!

It’s that time again… Salute your inner prepster. It’s summer. Why not? If you bestie frequently sports a string of pearls, a popped collar, madras flip flops and anything with a whale… this post is for you lady. Listen up.

A shower should be a reflection of all that the bride is, so if your bride-to-be is a seriously put together, pink and green model of preppy perfection make your life easy and follow suit for her bridal shower.

Here’s everything you need to know to plan a perfectly preppy bridal shower.

THE INVITATIONS
This is your first clue to guests that this shower is going to be pretty-in-prep. So shop around and set the tone here.

THE DRESSES
I’m a pretty firm believer that bridal shower attire should always still remain a little bit on the dressy side. Not over the top evening wear obviously, as they used to say, your Sunday best. But if you’re a pretty little preppy I shouldn’t have to tell you that. You wear your pearls to sleep don’t you? What?   I do.

These fun new “Summer in the Vineyard” dresses from Kiel James Patrick are PERFECT for a preppy shower, whether it’s the bride, her maids or her lovely ladies in waiting, these sweet summer frocks are perfect for a preppy shower.

THE CENTERPIECES
If you were lucky enough to hit up the MacKenzie Childs Barn Sale last weekend (which was amazing) you can make use of the seriously discounted and seriously adorable planters they have to decorate tables. If not, you just have to dig a little deeper in your pocket. Plant adorably simple herbs like rosemary, basil, parsley and thyme and DIY your own adorable plant sticks with materials from your local craft store.

THE DECORATIONS
Keep it simple and in the same color scheme as your invites. Using varying shades of fewer colors is a good way to keep things interesting without going overboard. I love this faux rose kissing ball from Special Occasions Designs. Perfect for decorating outside the venue on iron stakes or on the doors.
