Brass Pineapple

I shared this little brass pineapple picture on my instagram (@mrs.andrealee) a while back and it was quite a hit. It was a thrifting score so I have no information about where to find your own, but I did find many similar ones on Etsy (just search brass pineapple).
 

For our wedding we received a beautiful pineapple cutting board (everyone knows we love our time in Maui) and I thought it might be fun to add a few more pineapple touches to our home. I found that one of my favorite online stores High Street Market carries a few timeless brass pineapple decorative objects:

Wedding Wednesday- Megan + Dan

Are you getting sick of my wedding posts yet? Well, I thought I would mix it up and share today about our good friend Megan's wedding from this past weekend. I loved her rustic theme and all her little details!
 
I'm a total sucker for a well thought out table setting:
 
The setting was a flower farm. So stinkin' cute!
 
With my good friend (and my bridesmaid Sarah) waiting for drinks. I wore a Lilly Pulitzer Maxi dress (similar) and it was perfect for a late summer wedding!
 
Loved the flowers and the hobnail vases!
 
And of course the adorable cake and all the macaroons!

 
They are the sweetest couple and we are so excited for them!!! Congrats Dan and Megan! XO

A Little Quiet Time

It's been go, go, go around these parts lately, and I couldn't be more excited to spend a little quiet time up in Tahoe this weekend relaxing with my family.
 

I took this picture last month (where has the time gone?!) on another trip to Lake Tahoe (first on a bachelorette party then hanging with the other side of my family) while kayaking. It's so pretty and peaceful and just good for the soul that I can't wait to get back!

Wedding Wednesday- Our Wedding Video

My cousin Alison (left) was totally awesome and put together a little video of our wedding.  I seriously don't know how she managed to be both a bridesmaid and capture our day. Thank you times a million Alison!!!

What to Wear: Country Club Tour

As I briefly mentioned, CWF and I have been looking into joining a country club in our area. We are interested in the networking and social aspects of club life and because we already play golf so much it just makes sense for us. We toured 4 potential clubs and have narrowed it down to our favorite (I can share more about that later). One of my biggest dilemmas was what to wear for the tour. I wanted us to look conservative and classic but also youthful (because we are). Also since it was 100+ degrees and we would be walking outside, pants and coats were totally out of the question. This is what I came up with:
 
Him: Gingham button down shirt with rolled sleeves, tucked in (club rules), chino shorts with a nice watch and boat shoes.
 
Her: A classic shift dress (similar, on sale) with neutral accessories (low wedges with a quilted purse and pearl earrings).
 
 
We were both pleased with our outfits and that helped us feel confident (not going to lie, it was a little intimidating!)

Plaid Loafers

I'm not one to wish away the seasons (okay maybe just the end of winter) because I absolutely love everything about summer! I'm totally a summer girl at heart, as I live for barefoot warm summer nights and days spent at the water. But however, I did get EXTREMELY excited the other day when I spotted these plaid loafers on the JCrew website! I may have even let out a squeal of excitement!

 
I told you, amaze right?!!?! I'm picturing these with dark skinny jeans and a cableknit sweater or even a little shift dress and tights on a crisp fall day. As I wait patiently for their arrival (ahem, Jcrew won't ship them to CA- you will need to ship them to someone out of state) I'll still be enjoying the last bits of summer, white jeans and wicker bags included!
 
XOXO

Pleated Tablecloth

I've mentioned before that I'm on a bit of a re-decorating kick. Luckily for us, this past weekend we got our long awaited new queen bed! That means that our old bed + frame went to the guest room, which leaves a lot to be desired in the master. Since it's sort of a clean slate I'm looking forward to the final outcome. One project I hope to tackle soon is the bedside table. We are using a beautiful gold leaf round side table from my grandma which I love, but doesn't exactly fit in with my new plans. Instead of buying something new I want to make a tablecloth to cover it!
 
Here is the inspiration:

I am hoping to enlist my Nana (surprise!) when she come to visit in a few weeks for help. Can't wait to share the final result!
 
 
If you are also in the market, but unwilling to do something custom, I found this 108 inch burlap beauty at a fraction of the price I've seen elsewhere:

 
If only I had somewhere to put it!
 
 
 UPDATE: Society Social now carries them too in 25+ colors!!

 
XOXO
