Check In

Unless you're a seating chart, a "together for life" ceremony guide or my wedding binder I've got nothing good to give you these days. But I promise in a few shorts weeks I'll have tons and tons of fabulous things to share!

Until then here are a few random things to hold you over!

Vintage Flowers

One of my new favorite finds at the Rowayton Farmer's Market was Flowers by Raul. Beautiful, colorful arrangements done in vintage tin cans, galvanized buckets or traditional vases. How darling are these?!? Just looking at the bright zinnias, snap dragons and roses made me smile. I'd love to treat myself to one of these every Friday to kick off the weekend. Hint, hint to the fiancée! Available at the Rowayton Market as well or contact Raul directly at 203.609.1110 or

Cherry Street East

Cruising around New Canaan on a rainy Sunday the other week we decided to look for a cozy place to treat ourselves to a guilty pleasure lunch. We drove by Gates but it just didn't have what we were looking for and then we remembered Cherry Street East. Having not been there in years we figured we'd check it out and it was perfect! Mozzarella sticks, Buffalo Chicken Wraps and a few beers later we'd enjoyed just the meal we were looking for. Perfect for a causal weekday night to escape the heat or a fun weekend lunch, they also had a bunch of great specials this summer.

Sunday Brunch - free mimosa or bloody mary with a brunch entree
Monday Night - complimentary margarita with any mexican specials entree
Tuesday Night - any bottle of wine on the wine list, $20

Check out the full menu at
45 East Avenue, New Canaan

Everyday Inspiration

So I'm oddly obsessed with this blog...this girl Kendi gets married, moves to a small town in Texas and starts a blog on what she wears everyday. Sounds totally stupid right? Yet it's secretly amazing. She's adorable, has a great sense of style, wears mostly things from J Crew, the Gap, Target and thrift stores, and her husband is an awesome photographer. And she does this cool thing called a '30 for 30' where she limits herself to 30 items of clothing and tries to make 30 new outfits over 30 days. It's embarrassingly interesting.  So maybe you'll love it, or maybe you'll say "yes, that is totally stupid" but I thought I'd share! However I'm guessing along with her over 9,000 follower that most of you will like her too!
