I decided to switch to Blogger. Mostly for template purposes and user friendliness (in my opinion). Go check me out at sparkleandsoulblog.blogspot.com.
I thought it might be fun to pair up fashion with thanksgiving table settings. A little turkey day inspiration. Just because you are going stuff your face doesn’t mean the you and the table can’t look good in the process.
My favorites are a toss up between one and three. One is just so fun and not your typical setting and three is just comfortable. Which look is your favorite?!

When I think of Fall, I think of sweaters, apple picking, pumpkin carving and new boots. When my husband thinks of Fall he thinks of mainly football with mostly beer. Can anyone feel the pain with me? Now I wouldn’t suggest this on Sunday or Monday or Thursday (all football nights for the ladies who share in my pain) but a Saturday is fair game for a Beer Tasting Party!
When I saw the new line out at Target with Wit & Delight I knew their products would be the perfect pieces for a fall beer tasting party. Just add some burgers, pretzels and of course the beer and you’re good to go!
The line has everything you need and more including a bottle opener, beverage tub, tasting sheets and flight plan plus for good measure some fun pencils & napkins. I also LOVE the chalkboard paper which could be used to display your yummy food!
It’s on my weekend agenda to grab a few of these items before they are all gone! Do you have any Fall themed parties planned this season?
Happy Monday!! I wanted to share a bit of what’s been happening on IG lately.
Both of these sleeveless tops are from Express and I lived in them all summer!! They are perfect and will also work into fall.
On September 14th we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. It was pretty low key as we are finally going on our honeymoon to Jamaica (in 8 days!!). Our bakery provided us a small cake which was delicious and we headed into Boston for dinner & drinks, which of course led to a pit stop at Georgetown Cupcakes. If you’ve never been to Georgetown, run there now! They are amazzzing! As for gifts (we stuck with the traditional paper) I bought him an art piece of handrawn sheet music of our wedding song. It came out amazing! You can always count on Etsy! He of course outdid himself getting me a gift certificate for a mani/pedi, gift certificate for a facial and massage and tickets to see a cover band that we used at our wedding! So sweet!!
These leopard flats were a new fall purchase and they are so comfy and such a steal! Target does it again!
Recent blooms. Sidenote – I actually work as a Lead Event Coordinator now for Blissful Events here in RI. I am LOVING every minute of it and one awesome perk is taking home beautiful florals (purple & white).
A new necklace purchase I’m in LOVE with. If you have never heard of Ikavee on IG, you’re missing out. She stocks amazing pieces. Go check her out!!

Heyyy friends! I wanted to share new favorite trend of mine, black watches! I’m really going to need to invest in one. I love that they are timeless and versatile. I really love #5 (it also comes in grey!). A fellow blogger frequently wears #4 and does it so well!
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some new pieces I’ve added to my closet, and there’s quite a few! Here we go!
I may have had a jumpsuit and strappy sandal moment but I am OBSESSED with all four pieces. The pink JUSTFAB heels I scored for $20!! White linen pants and loose tees are the perfect casual summer pieces paired with ILY Couture’s beautiful layered necklace. I just snagged the embellished chambray during the Nordstrom’s anniversary sale and it’s a stunner! Lastly pink & yellow neon never hurt anybody!
What new pieces have you added to your wardrobe lately??

I don’t know about you but one of my favorite things to do in the summer is grill and be outside with friends. Their really isn’t anything better. Chairish asked me to put together a style board using some of their awesome bar stools, showing what I would love my outdoor bar to look like. If you haven’t heard of Chairish or don’t know what they do, you’re missing out. They make it fun and easy for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. And they have so many unique pieces, you’re sure to find something to fit your style!
I started with their wicker bar stools because they scream summer to me. All it took was the bar, of course, and some fun accessories! Oh and the drinks, can’t forget the drinks 😉 I love the green bowls because they have some color and are perfect for nuts or snacks for your guests! I hope this gives your some inspiration go out and create your perfect bar area, where it’s in your backyard or at party! But most of all enjoy you’re summer!
