J. Crew Inspiration

Today, J. Crew was on my mind, especially with the historical inauguration yesterday. The Obama girls were decked in Crew Cuts and looking like little fashionistas, just like their Momma!

You can make waves with J. Crew Bridal's stunning and hugely affordable dresses. All eyes on you wearing this gorgeous silk tricotine Gracie gown. {shhh, it's $395 at J.Crew.} Your girls will be stunning in J. Crew's Silk Chiffon Twist-Tank Dress. The dresses were inspired by the Elegance invitation by eInvite, also a great value. The lush green is the perfect accent to the pewter silk, especially when complimented by bright sophisticated accessories like this stunner by Molly Shattuck Thomas. This piece was handmade at her studio in Providence. Ok, splurge a bit!

On the side, a little minty cocktail:

Mint Lime Ade:
1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves
2 oz. simple syrup
1 1/2 oz. lime juice
soda water to fill

In a sturdy glass muddle mint with simple syrup. Add ice, lime juice and soda water. Stir well. Thank you On The House!

Just had a bride book last week with a pewter and lime color scheme! A fresh look for an April wedding.
