summer time and the livin' is easy

we hope everyone had a nice long weekend. we sure did. 
bbq. family. sunshine. what more could one ask for?!
here's what's been catching our eye on the web

we enjoyed this (maybe too much) over the long weekend as well as this. they're perfect for the boat and the beach! 

we're doing our happy dance because now we can officially wear white jeans until labor day. even though we don't believe in those old school fashion rules but sometimes 
people in the northeast get all judgy about it.
wearing white head to toe is such a classic and effortless look. it's our summer wardrobe and thinking we need to add this to the rotation.

it's sandal weather - after this winter a pedicure was way overdue. i just got this color and am only slightly obsessed with it. 

still getting over all the excitement from the National Stationery Show. for those of you who aren't familiar it's held at the Javits Center in New York once a year. all of the buyers for stores, big and small, attend. it's absolutely amazing. there are so many talented people and so many great products. we found a lot of amazing things and will be continuing to add them to the shop as they come in.

our new packaging material is on its way. we can't wait to show it off. the outside of the package really sets the tone for the gift, doesn't it? we know its what's inside that matters but let's be honest, 
who doesn't love a pretty package?!
