During the summer, I can't think of anything I want to wear more than a maxi dress. In addition to being breezy, they are just too easy. Wearing one requires little to no thought -- throw on a maxi, grab your shades, hit the road. Boom -- effortless glamour.
This BB Dakota maxi even gets bonus points for:
1. Being really soft
2. It's extra long (great for tall girls!)
3. It's blue + white -- only the most chic and classic of all summer color combinations!
The (amazing) Angie of Suburbanite Photography and I had a great time together with this shoot!
We must have looked like we were an epic amount of fun, because this random man couldn't help but want to join our party.
They do say you meet a lot of new friends through blogging...

Since Tailor & Table launched last fall, we've been lucky enough to book some ah-mazing clients (seriously, I want them all to be my BFFs). The tricky thing about events is that clients tend to book their designers waaaayyy in advance (which, for the record, I totally recommend). This especially rings true with weddings, which most of 2014's events happen to be!
Since last October, we've been meeting, planning, placing orders, and designing every last detail for our lovely clients day in and day out. While it's been fun, T&T has been anxiously counting down the days until our events actually started happening. Folks, the waiting has finally come to an end and I, for one, could not be happier about it (patience is not one of my virtues).
THIS WEEK IS THE WEEK!
Things are a-happenin' around here!
We have two events this week. Go big or go home, amiright?
First, we're hitting the road for the SOLD OUT NotWedding Charleston.
From Charleston, we'll head to Atlanta to give the sweetest couple a classically stunning wedding. Think marble and lace and gold candelabras, OH MY.
I thought I was excited when we launched T&T. Then I reached a new high when we booked our first client.
But neither of those times really compare to the way I'm feeling today.
I'm anxious, excited, thankful, and so proud.
But mostly, I feel happiness. The kind of happiness that starts at your toes and travels up to flush your cheeks and plant a smile on your face. I've had good days and bad days as a entrepreneur, but I think these are going to be the best of the best. I can't wait to see where the next week take us.
Here goes nothin'!
I plan on blowing up Instagram this week (via both Tailor & Table's account and my personal account). If you love design and have good taste, follow along. If you don't, perhaps this may be more to your liking?

Clockwise starting from the top left:
Bold new shades
Lunching on the go with a green smoothie and JCrew Malta sandals
Took a break from designer to play coordinator for a darling couple
The courtyard at Atlanta's Summerour Studio
Summa time feast!
I've been bopping around for the last two weeks -- Greenville, Atlanta, North Georgia mountains, Charleston... all kinds of fun places (with fun people)! I'm looking forward for this week at home before craziness resumes command next week. I plan on catching up on some work, snuggling with the pup, and indulging on some all-American treats that Levi works up on the grill.
Do you guys have big plans for the four day work week? Are you laying low or going big?
