summer snaps

A few summer snaps  snippets of a season past >> 1 + 3) classic red mailbox + picket fence, on my great-aunt’s property in pennsylvania; that was her old stone house in the background, with ivy crawling up the chimney {you can read about the attic here} 2) packing up flowers with my bridesmaids from my aunt’s garden in the Adirondacks to take to the wedding site – I just l-o-v-e those fresh summer colors 4) I will call this still life of croquet set and Adirondack chair 5) little Zelda in the field

lox papers loves lilly!

When the girls at the Pink Palace asked me to create an inspiration collage on one of my favorite American icons, Lilly Pulitzer, I l-e-a-p-e-d at the opportunity (I literally jumped up out of my chair with excitement)! As a New England prep schooler, Lilly played quite a hand in shaping my personal aesthetic and style. I hope you enjoy my musings on this phenomenal woman & brand

An enormous t-h-a-n-k you to the marketing team at Lilly for your wonderful support!
