the lost art of handwritten notes

So many people these days just send quick emails to thank people for invitations, gifts, etc. (I am also guilty) instead of sending a handwritten note. While it is faster and more convenient, it also misses the more personal touch that a handwritten note has that someone actually took the time to write, put a stamp on it, and send! One of my favorite things to receive is actual letters and cards in the mail from friends and family, and it happens far too often now. 

There are so many beautiful and personal options when it comes to stationary, there really is no excuse! For myself I prefer the monogrammed stationary, which adds the most personal touch - but there are so many with gorgeous patterns, colors and finishes! It has become (almost) as fun to shop for as clothes!

Style Watch: Lemon Breeland aka Jaime King

I am not sure about the rest of you, but I am going through some serious Hart of Dixie withdrawal now that the season is over! I love the stories and relationships, etc. etc. but my FAVORITE part is seeing what all the characters are wearing! One of my top characters to watch is Lemon Breeland, played by the lovely Jaime King. We don't typically see such classic and southern fashion on TV, so her wardrobe is always a refreshing surprise. Needless to say, I'm a big fan!

sunhats and curls- the perfect combo!
Blue checkered full skirt and simple white blouse- perfection.
Gorgeous gold yellow dress with gold detailing, with a dramatic ballet neck!
Classic country club wear does not get any better!
Surprising color combo with florals and classic side curls- love it!

Style Watch: Emma Stone

Without a doubt, there are very few Hollywood actresses more adorable than Emma Stone. Not only is she absurdly fashionable, with the most amazing skin and hair ever- she also seems to be one of the few actresses who has a true sense of humor, with her feet firmly planted on the ground. I think that is something to be celebrated, as it is not something so common you see from Hollywood. So today, we celebrate Emma!
