Aren't these the prettiest wedding details ever? The very talented photographer is Marianne Taylor from England and I think she's capturing the loveliest elements and the most touching moments on weddings. Sometimes I spend hours on her blog cause I just can't have enough of its beauty...and I have to tell you, occasionally I even shed a tear...or two.

Congratulations on your dreamy wedding dear Anna & Russ and we wishing you endless happiness. Read more about this wedding here.

MY DREAMY WEDDING ESSENTIALS:
Well I realizing that, being able to wear all the gorgeous wedding dresses and accessories I'm in love with, I have to get married at least 3-4 times :-). Loving this classic Alexander McQueen dress and this bohemian Matthew Williamson gown. Also the Vivienne Westwood corseted gown and this oh so gorgeous georgette gown from Lanvin. This simple and sophisticated Yves Saint Laurent Wool-crepe shift dress is one of my favorite, along with these pretty Fendi satin pumps and the Smythson Wedding planner.

Colorful French macarons from Mexico? Why not? Theurel & Thomas is the first patisserie in Mexico specialized in French macarons, the most popular dessert of the French pastries.
Photobucket
The Theurel & Thomas patisserie has an enlightened space with an exclusivity and elegant atmosphere...perfectly ladylike I must say...
Photobucket
The store location is in San Pedro, Mexico, Latin America's most affluent suburb.
Photobucket
White is a central part of the design and it contrasts with the French macarons colors.
Photobucket
What a place right? I adore the design and would love to stop by here some day...Have a wonderful Friday evening dear friends and thanks for visiting this week.

Just discovered this beautiful image and it reminds me of how much I love wearing kaftans, tunics and maxi dresses during the summer time. I love the feeling of soft silk on my skin and how the fabrics gloriously swinging around my body...are you a kaftan lover?

KAFTAN RELATED LINK LOVE:
I'm in love with this magnificent Marchesa Silk-chiffon embroidered kaftan but practically anything from Marchesa would be more than welcome in my closet. Just like this Matthew Williamson Printed chiffon long kaftan. This simple and beautiful Emamó Embellished cotton kaftan is a perfect beachwear and I adore the sleeve details.

While I'm not a big fan of Sex and the City 2 and I was pretty disappointed in the movie I have to admit that I was head over heels about the design of Carrie and Big's apartment. As Carrie says in the movie their closet is like a lil' piece of heaven...and I must totally agree with her on that.
Photobucket
Their dining room is exquisite and I absolutely adore these beautiful chairs...
Photobucket
I love these light gray armchairs and this retro coffee table /which can be find here/.
Photobucket
This apartment style just works beautifully and I love every inch of it. What do you think?

I love colors and too much color doesn't give me a headache but I also appreciate the value of neutral spaces. I never get tired of white and beige. Just collected my favorite neutrals from Layla Grayce.com.

I'm dreaming about dreaming on those beautiful pillows...
Photobucket

I'm crazy for practically everything from Pom Pom at Home. What do you think? Hope your weekend is lovely my dears...
