Don’t let the lackluster cover turn you off. The editorial is gorgeous. We miss you Summer Roberts.
Photo bombing done right. This couple is going to have a photo from their wedding day that they always going to remember because Zach Braff is in it! The actor just happened to be crossing the street right as this shot was being taken. Photo bombing is pretty great, but when celebrities do it, it’s 10x better.
For the first time in a long time, I had a lollipop today. I know, what am I – 7 years old? My office has an entire box of caramel apple pops, which used to be my favorite candy as a kid. According to my co-workers, no one eats them nor did they ever as a child. I figured once a favorite, always a favorite. Wrong. I ate that sucker and my mouth was a sticky sugary mess. It was slightly embarrassing also because I’m pretty sure no one else is eating a lollipop in the office in the middle of the the afternoon. I may have grown out of my candy, but I can appreciate some art when I see it.
Emily Blincoe created these arrangements of candies by color and I think they’re kind of pretty and nostalgic. To view the rest from the Austin-based photographer, click here.
Happy Monday morning, readers! I am beyond excited to share this video with you from William and Timaree’s wedding. First off, I heard this song on a commercial a couple of weeks ago and was wracking my brain trying to figure out who sung it. I’m happy to discover that it is “Ends of the Earth” by Lord Huron. Funny, because I’m pretty sure another one of their songs will be used in my future wedding someday. Lord Huron – everyone – use them for your wedding.
Anyways, William and Timaree seem like such a sweet couple. They’ve really put in some work into the details of the wedding and some of my favorites include the white balloons and the Ferris Wheel! So fun! Well I know you’re dying to see some photographs and they are pretty spectacular so here is their wedding featured on Style Me Pretty.
I’ve had an interest in selfies for a couple of months now. I refuse to take them unless it’s through Snapchat and the one time I actually published a selfie was with with my best friends on Facebook. It was silly. I was trying to investigate a few questions with regards to selfies though- what are people thinking when they take one and how do they expect other people to react. What comes to mind may be an ere of being “self-absorbed,” but then I thought, bloggers do the exact same thing in better form when they post photographs of their outfits. The major difference is that a selfie is much more up close and it’s got those angles. I don’t think I’ll ever come to a conclusion about them, but I suppose I’m okay with that.
Lowe South Africa developed a campaign in which they reimagined famous photos as selfies. As much as I hate the idea, there’s no doubting that these photos are mesmerizing.
He’s GQ’s man of the year, but are we surprised? He released two albums and collaborated with Jay-Z for pretty much the entire year and as of 2012 was officially a taken man. We’ve loved Justin since his NSYNC days and probably will continue to feel the same way about him with every project. A part of me just hopes he’ll take a break from music one year and take up a regular gig on Saturday Night Live.
It’s somewhat of a huge change for me to not be living in a city right now. I’ve always thought of myself as a “city girl,” but not a permanent one. I’ve kept an open mind and now when I travel to the city (San Francisco) I appreciate it more and see it as a weekend treat. I’m not sure if I always took advantage of that when I was living in Seattle. This photo above is neither San Francisco nor Seattle! It’s actually Chicago, which is fitting since I reached out to my friend over there today and was thinking of her. I’ve never been to the city, but I just know that I would love it.
Here is to future trips!
Fall is here and while I’ve never enjoyed the colder weather, I really do love my over-sized sweaters and discovering new ways to layer up. I like all of my favorite retail stores for different reasons, but the one that is just “nailin’ it” with the layering, always, is Free People. Thermals under dresses, knee high socks over tights – sure, you could do that with any other label, but Free People was made to do exactly this.
