Trend Talk: Birks are Back

I have to admit, I didn't see this coming.  I remember Birkenstocks being in style in high school, or maybe even college.  I had a pair (I think) but certainly didn't hang on to them. I guess I should have, since they're making a major comeback.  The comfy-flat-loving part of mw is ecstatic, but the fashion lover in me in is slightly unsure. (Although the gal above makes them look pretty chic!)  So tell me...will you be rocking the Birkenstock trend?  Do you still have a pair from back in the day?  (In case you don't, you can grab a new pair here.)

Mama Fab's welcome goody bags for the out of towners.

Sorry for the radio silence lately!  We're wrapping up the wedding weekend and have a bit of family in town until tomorrow.  Things might be kind of quiet around here over the next day or so (clients and emails are gonna come before blogging), but I wanted to pop in and say hello (or shall I say "howdy".)  

Can't wait to share pictures from the weekend -- we're having a ball!  Until then...xx.

I'm bringing back my "Currently" column with a bit of a format facelift. (Hope you like!)

Did you see Gaby's recently released prints?  They are so pretty.   •   I'm getting a lot of wear out of this Gorjana necklace. It's the definition of classic (gold) with a modern twist (the shape).   •   I used to be a gloss all the time girl, but have worn lipsticks over the past year or so. This Laura Mercier is my current favorite formula thanks to the light feeling and creamy texture. The color options are pretty, too.   •   During a quick stroll through J. Crew, these flats caught my eye first. Aren't they lovely?   •   Even though it's a bagillion degrees here, I'm already thinking fall.  I think I want a new fall bag, and this Coach beauty is the current contender.  Which item is your favorite?

Talking Points: Sister of the Groom

The week ahead is going to be a pretty special one for our family, especially my brother.  He's getting married on Saturday; the first wedding of the 3 of us.  I'm excited and nervous for him, but mainly I'm hopeful that this new chapter of his life is a joyous one.  

We have many family and friends coming to Dallas for the affair, including some that I haven't seen in years. (The weekend is shaping up to be a family reunion of sorts.)  I've been busy helping Mama Fab with the rehearsal dinner details (a tex-mex fiesta with margs, of course) and we've truly enjoyed putting everything together.  (My creative side definitely comes from her.) The out of towners start arriving Wednesday and  I can't wait to see each and every one of them.

On another note, I'm (finally) feeling better!  I had a chest cold last week and still have a lingering cough but other than that I'm on the mend just in time for the wedding fun.  I have a feeling this special week is going to fly by and I couldn't be more excited.  I hope your Monday is off to a great start!

Signing Off For The Week

Well y'all, my blogging brain is pretty much mush at the moment so I'm just gonna call it a week.  I've been under the weather since Tuesday, and thanks to the sore throat, coughing, and sleepless nights, I need a little blogging break. I'm going to focus on my clients for the rest of the week and will be back next week with a better attitude,  I promise.  Until then...
