Shop Pink in October

The last few years in October, I compile a list of things to buy in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Your favorite brands and designers often create limited edition items (usually the color pink) and donate funds to various organizations for research. For anyone who likes shop - *raises hand* - now is the time to do so! Here are some pink things I am loving this October.
Shop Pink

EF Collection Pink Sapphire X Ring: Portions from the sales of this limited edition ring go to The Pink Agenda.
NFL Pink Hoody: I love this hoody that is part of NFL's annual campaign in October. In this month's games, look for players to be wearing special pink gloves, jerseys, etc. All proceeds from sales of items from go to the American Cancer Society.
Bobbi Brown Peony Set:  Pick up a great blush & brush set with proceeds benefitting Breast Cancer Research Foundation .
Pink Lokai Bracelet: Add to your arm party stack with this limited edition Lokai bracelet with benefits to Susan G. Komen.
Emi-Jay Pink Ribbon Hair Ties: I have wayyy too many Emi-Jay hair ties, why not get 5 more? ;) 20% of proceeds benefit Bright Pink.
Pink Pony Candle: Ralph Lauren's long running line donates money towards the Pink Pony Fund.

What I'm Wearing Wednesday & Weekend Scenes: Cousin's Wedding

This past weekend we went to CT for my cousin's wedding. She got married at the beautiful Eolia Mansion at Harkness Memorial State Park. My damask print dress felt perfect for an early fall event (and it was on sale for $20!). I added a pop of color with red shoes & lip and carried a cashmere shawl for later in the night.
Dress: local Southie boutique, Habit (cute Alice + Olivia similar-ish dress here)
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman (borrowed from Mom - more summery version here)
Necklace: Habit (similar here)
Cashmere shawl (not pictured): Ann Taylor (old - another version here)
Gold clutch (not pictured): Tory Burch (black version here)
Red lip: YSL

And here are a few more photos from the wedding, though I cannot wait to see the gorgeous shots from Cambria Grace Photography!
Family selfie.
Beautiful styling and calligraphy at the tables. 
Flowers on point by Wildfolk Studio.
The bride!
Congrats to J & K! 


Friday Faves of September

What- it's going to be October next week!? I have to say this September was so fun due to my travels and the beautiful weather we have been having in Boston, but I am excited to slow down a little in October. We have made some wedding decisions and I look forward to sharing some details next month. Today marks 1 year to go! For now, here are my September favorites from around the web.

Weekend Scenes: Fort Worth, TX

Ft. Worth Stockyards
Here are some photos from my long weekend to visit a good friend in Fort Worth, Texas! She just had her second baby earlier this spring, so I was excited to visit their new home and new addition to their family. Downtown Fort Worth is really fun with the dichotomy of the old-town Stockyards and the newer downtown area, Sundance Square that was recently updated with shops, great restaurants, and an outdoor gathering space.
Highlights of the weekend included riding a longhorn (ha!), brunch at Tim Love's Woodshed, the hilarious improv comedy show Four Day Weekend (we are with some of the guys below. Definitely go to this show if you are in Fort Worth!), and a visit to the Kimbell Art Museum to see the new Renzo Piano-designed pavilion.

All photos by me.


My brother's wedding in Quechee, VT

It was a fantastic weekend celebrating my brother and now sister-in-law's(!) wedding up at the Quechee Inn. The weather was perfect for exploring Quechee (dinner at Simon Pearce and a morning "hike" at the Quechee Gorge), rehearsing, and watching K&B become husband and wife. As I was in the wedding, I tried not to have my phone on me, so I can't wait to see the photos the photographer took and other shots from guests that are being shared. The newlyweds are off to the Keys for their honeymoon, and I am reliving the weekend through my photos. Here are some highlights.
Congrats K&B, love you!
