The Paris Wife

I just finished reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, and couldn't help but caught up in the glamour of 1920s Paris.  I found myself immersed in the tragic beauty of the era, longing to join the characters for a cocktail at a Paris cafe.  What an interesting place to be, living a bohemian lifestyle, jetting off on European vacations for weeks on end.

The Paris Wife inspired my BHLDN moodboard for the giveaway hosted by blogger Joy at oh joy!  She has partnered with BHLDN and is giving away a beautiful outfit, perfect for any summer event.  Visit oh joy! to enter the giveaway by 9am tomorrow!

High vs. Low: Summer Black Tie

Summer wedding season is in full swing.  I have my second of the summer this weekend in San Antonio for my sweet friend Lisa from our days at TCU.  With all of the incoming invitations and upcoming bashes I can't help but fantasize about the perfect ensemble.  Often it is challenging to pull together a similar look on a budget.  This high vs. low for a summer black tie event still looks like you spent the money, but is checking account friendly!

Egg Waffles

Egg Waffles have been a Hong Kong street vendor favorite for generations and are a weekend favorite in our household.  They are similar in consistency to waffle cake, an American favorite for their puffy, doughy texture, but are shaped like bubble wrap.  Serve with fresh fruits, jams, or powdered sugar and lemon and don't forget the Mimosas.
