white jeans aren't just for summer...

 
How lovely and chic are these Parisian women?
I love their style in dressing up their white denim for fall with scarves and blazers {scarves are high on the list of things that the French have mastered, as well as macaroons and champagne.} I will be using these women as inspiration to continue to wear my white denim {my favorite pair found here} all year around.

orange with envy

 
It is no surprise that I like orange. I recently picked up some orange skinnies,
after much deliberation if they were too loud/crazy. I decided that they would
be great with chunky knits, a crisp white shirt, or leopard all year around.
 
Happy Shopping!

orange + pink decor

 


I feel like every girl should have a bachelorette pad before getting married: a lovely, girly place to call her own before moving in with the Mr. Perfect. Mine was decorated in blues and tans (promise, more girly than it sounds) with, surprise, orange accents. I love this bachelorette pad that I stumbled upon on Dustjacket attic for all the girly touches and, of course, the orange. {I am going to store this decor idea away for any needed little girl rooms.}


{who doesn't love to decorate with Veuve Clicquot?}

something blue...

I am so excited to announce a new series, appropriately titled something blue. While the dress, venue and husband are always exciting details that can't be missed on your Big Day, I am all about the hidden details. The something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue are personal details that are one of my favorite things to hear about the brides process in these decisions.

I am honored to have Tamra from Every Swoon being our inaugural brides for this series. Tamra has recently started a bridal consulting business and I love to check out her blog to see what amazing Big Days she gets to be a part of. Check out her blog here.


Something Old...
One of the doily's my Grandmother made and passed on to me was wrapped around my bouquet. My grandmother loved Michael and really wanted us to get married. Sadly, she passed away a few weeks after Michael bought the ring and he didn't get the opportunity to give her one of her last wishes. With my Grandmother's doily wrapped around my bouquet, I felt as though she was there with me on my wedding day, holding my hand all the way down the aisle.
 
Something New...
My Oscar de la Renta dress! I put it on every now and again just to twirl around. 
 
Something Borrowed...
I have two "something borrowed"! I wore my moms wedding dress while I was getting ready on the morning of the wedding. I think it was a magic dress because I was so incredibly calm. Also, the look on my mom and dad's face when I came out in my mom's dress was priceless. I spent the entire morning getting ready with my mom, dad, and sister which was really, really special and intimate.

 
For the wedding day, I wore my sister's flower shaped feather hairpin that she wore on her wedding day just 10 months before. It matched my wedding style and bouquet perfectly, as feathers were used all throughout our wedding day.
 
Something Blue...
This one may be a stretch, but I consider my sparkling shoes my something blue
because they kind of had a iridescent hue to it.
 

 
Thanks to Tamra for contributing her picks and pics!
 
Don't forget to check out her blog and email me at navyandorangeblog {at}gmail {dot}com if you are interested in being featured in this series.
 
xoxo navy & orange
