a few of my favorite things | july

Ahhh July!  A holiday month for many, where the summer days are longer, and the warm nights are reason enough to prolong time outside with friends and family.  It’s the time of year where we have an excuse to be a bit more casual & relaxed, get out of our element and enjoy the moment.

As such, this summer vibe has certainly influenced my round-up of favorite things for this month.

POISE. | a few of my favorite-things | July14

1 | Save the date correspondence is definitely an added expense for a wedding but a really elegant way to announce your marriage date if you can find room for it in your budget.  I love the elegance of this one by Bernard Maisner via Vogue.  Doesn’t the Parisian address just seal this design with elegance?

2 | Good basics is where I prioritize my wardrobe budget, and these flattering cotton pajama pants by black label would fall into that category.  They are perfect paired with a simple tank top for lounging around the beach house with guests on cool summer nights.

3 | This is such lovely time of year to be outside, time on the seaside is one of my favorite ways to spend time during these warm summer months. {Image}

4 | I’ve been eyeing this photo from a 1960’s Glamour magazine photo, for my bathroom.  It would complement my neutral color palette nicely and add a bit of glamour.  It would also be a nice reminder of warm days at the beach during Boston’s dreadfully cold winters!!

5 + 6 | I happened to be at Neiman Marcus a few weeks ago and came across these glasses.  At first glance I thought they were crystal but when I picked them up, realized they are acrylic. They are modern & stylish enough to be formal from a design standpoint, yet practical enough for casual outdoor entertaining based on their composition – a lovely balance between style & function.

Wishing you an absolutely beautiful July,
