Yeay! Friday is here! What a tough week! To close out the week with a bang I wanted to introduce you to Dandy and Fine Parties. Bryn, a sweet virtual friend, alongside two other ladies began this company recently. Their portfolio is amazing (imagine more beautiful photos like the one above). They offer a full palette of design services - from stationary to florals & décor to curated playlists. For more info. visit them here. Aside from these fab parties I also have those cute kid terrier loafers on my mind. I ordered some for Little Miss A after seeing them on a little girl at a Birthday party last weekend. C-U-T-E!
The good news about really cold weather is that there will be less mosquitoes in the summer and Dallas would benefit from this after being a terrible West Nile Virus breeding ground for the last few years. It has been a problem. It's freezing here, so I'm so excited we get to go somewhere warm and toasty in a few days. We will have both beach and city to pack for but my goal is for all of us to take just one carry-on. Let's see how that pans out.
My super talented friend Nicole from Sketch42 took these amazing photos of Sasha Bikoff's home. I fell in love with the photos as well as with the interior design. I just recently shot a friend's interior design project so I really appreciated the beauty in Nicole's photos- the angles, the light, cropping. She nailed every shot. You need to see the rest of these photos and the rest of this home here.

Happy Tuesday, loves! Sam here, from The Peak of Tres Chic, back for the "We Love" series with Albertina, where we switch posts for the day to share our take on a particular theme. With the first day of spring a few weeks away, we thought we'd set our sights on a fresh, clean palette today. I am definitely a warm weather fan (Thank goodness I live in Texas!) and I cannot wait to pull out sundresses and espadrilles in the coming months. I also have a few beach vacays planned (one being my honeymoon in St. Barts), so I have been looking for a stylish hat. I love this panama hat paired with cuffed jean shorts and a lightweight blouse.

Excited to be joining in The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Link Party this morning. I feel like Nupita Nyong'o's dress should be up here. Wasn't it pretty? Well, here are just an array of shades of blue to start the week off. We had an amazing Saturday with temperatures in the 70s and then Sunday was freezing with snow flurries. The weather has gone bipolar here in Dallas.
Pi day (yup there is a national day to celebrate the famous 3.14285...number) is coming up and since I'm always looking for dessert inspiration I thought it would be the perfect excuse to make a pie- and of course it had to be chocolate. If the idea of a chocolate pie excites you as it does me here is a collection of chocolate pie recipes that I have bookmarked for future reference. This is such fine inspiration-
