Fall-Like Weather in June

fall like weather in june

We have been experiencing fall-like weather this first few days of June in northern New Jersey and it’s forced me to bring out some of my clothes that I already swapped to the backs of my drawers and closet.  I had just gotten into the dress-mode where it was finally getting consistently warm enough to throw on a comfortable, easy-to-wear dress each and every day, eliminating the need to spend time picking out full outfits and allowing me to get out the door quickly and more efficiently.  And then, just like that, the cool air strikes.  Dipping below 60 temperatures when you are so looking forward to a long-awaited summer is a bummer.  But I got to change up my wardrobe a bit and fall in love with pieces I haven’t seen since November.  This lightweight black ribbed dress is so perfect for any season that I have it in navy and white stripes, too.  I paired this with slip-on Converse and a military vest for a relaxed look fitting for this unexpected cooler weather.

Wedding Sneak Peek: Brigantine, NJ

p+r 12

I am so excited to share with you all a sneak peek of an amazing wedding for an overall great couple that I had the pleasure of styling over the weekend.  The wedding took place in Brigantine, NJ along the shore and the sand and the sea were a perfect backdrop beyond the beachfront restaurant where the reception was held.  A palette of white and ivory is such a classic wedding look.  It is timeless and can be done in any season.  And complimented with gold accents, this event achieved a simple, yet elegant feel.

It’s so great when you get the opportunity to work with awesome vendors and the florist, Pocket Full of Posies in Galloway, NJ hit it out of the park.  We went with a variety of different flowers, all in white and ivory, to create a beautiful texture and seamless look.  Eucalyptus leaves and succulents added a pop of color without over-doing it and were used throughout the ceremony and reception.
