wedding bells.

even though i am nine short weeks away from my due date
i have weddings on my mind.
bridal showers & bridal blessings. gown fittings & bridesmaids dresses.
all the loveliness that goes along with wedding planning. 

three of my dearest girlfriends are planning weddings right now.
one is in may. one is in june. & one is in november. 
it goes without saying... i am hearing wedding bells... and that makes me so very happy.

to this day. in my mind. my wedding gown was the most beautiful ever.
however. if i had to. was forced to. was made to. choose another gown to wear
it very well might be this stunner. 

i happen to think this is just the loveliest.
i adore the sheer lace back & the oversized bow.
it just doesn't get much prettier.

welcome to the neighborhood.

i literally cannot contain my excitement.
truly. i am beyond thrilled to welcome the one. the only.
mis en chic to downtown st. petersburg.

an absolute gem of an addition to our ever-growing downtown area. 
a much needed sprinkle of chic home decor & lavish little luxuries to our neck of the woods.
praise the good Lord for this extra special relocation.

you may remember my love affair with mis en chic from a previous feature.
i first introduced you to heidi & her little slice of heaven here.
ever since i first stepped into her indian shores boutique a few years ago
i have been just swooning over every little piece she displays. 
her style is the ultimate in chic. elegance. & class.

located on central avenue & 12th street north. 
mis en chic now occupies the former malindy elene bridal boutique building.
having been open for less than a week. heidi's shop is already the talk of the town.
people cannot help but stroll through the store as they pass by.
the absolutely beautiful things simply draws you in. 
and i can promise you. without a shadow of a doubt.
the moment you step in the doors you will be coveting each & every piece.

can you hardly wait to see it all in person?
you will surely be astonished. as my pictures hardly do justice 
to the beauty that abounds in this shop. 

swing by this week.
and tell them c'est si bon sent you!

welcome to the neighborhood, mis en chic.
we are so happy to have you near.


loving these fresh blooms. 
they are practically singing praises of springtime.
glorious. wondrous. springtime.

wouldn't you simply love coming home to this lovely bouquet?
lovie. are you listening?!

oh baby!
i am just absolutely loving this recent find.
and i know that you will too.
i have to admit.
when i found out i was having a baby boy. i had a small little hint of sadness.
i so badly wanted a little girl to dress up & accessorize.
you know. being the girlie-girl that i am... it only seemed appropriate.
not to mention the fact that i have always had a hard time finding darling little boy clothes.
until now.
oh. my. goodness.
these clothes are beyond precious.
i love. love. love them.
allow me to introduce you to SHADES.
the most adorable clothes for boys & girls. from babe to 6 years old.
beth. the mom & designer behind this line. is equally as precious.
super sweet. super sense of style. and just down-right swell.
a florida native. and a wise mom who knew what she wanted...
she decided that she would create the perfect florida clothes for her own kiddos.
little did she know that it would spread like crazy.
leaving all mommys. mommies-to-be. aunties. grandmommies. and the like
all swooning to dress their babes in these precious get-ups.
i mean. really?
how stinkin cute are these little ones?
i can promise you that my baby patrick will be living in these beachy jon-jons.

and these sweet little girl outfits are just the bees knees.
i love how the ruffle dress & bubble coordinate. but they aren't too matchy-matchy.
so over-the-top cute.

just darling. there are hardly words to express my adoration for these outfits.

the texture in this little dress is amazing.
not too mention this little seahorse is perfect.

shocking pink kissy fish bubble. you are my fave.

how unique are all of these appliques?
i just love them. and the tiny ruffle sleeves!

boy. oh boy.
drooling over this anchor jon-jon.
every little boy needs this.

and this.
is there anything cuter than those little shorts?

just melts my heart.
and gets me oh-so-excited to dress a baby boy!
you must. must. must see these clothes in person.
the textures. the quality. the lining. the detail.
it is all complete perfection.
and guess what...
beach papery & gifts is your local provider of this sweet childrens line.
so. run. don't walk. on in to the shop today.
you just have to see for yourself how darling each piece is!
{553 dr martin luther king jr street north in st. petersburg}
i can hardly wait for little patrick to get here.
these little jon-jons will be a staple in his summer wardrobe.
cutest baby boy in town?! i think so!
