Fabulous Finds in Blue and White

I started off with a wedding decor theme of sunny pinks and yellows as accents, however, due to a series of events (including my new J Crew pink heels for the occasion arriving far too big to wear!) I have had a change of heart and gone back to an inital idea - and one of my very favourite colour combinations - blue and white. With so much chatter about centre pieces, wedding veils and registries, my minds aflutter with delicious blue and white - I'm seeing it everywhere I go...

Gorgeous blue and white wallpaper at Ruthie Sommers. Those dark purple
hydrangeas are stunning!



I instantly fell in love with the Medallion dinnerware set from (drumroll...) Target! I have a passion for blue and white pottery and this design looks like something much more expensive but they're inexpensive enough to use everyday worry free!

I've always looked for Pistachio Press whenever I was in Barnes and Noble or Indigo bookstores, but I was delighted to find that they have their very own store now. It's beautiful and packed with eco-friendly and ethically conscious stationery, tea and even chocolates. :)

Aren't these just too pretty? The Lyla heels from J. Crew are perfectly girly but I think the navy and white stops it from being too precious. Makes me wish I'd see these before my ill-fated pink ones...

A lovely dress with soft ruffles and navy and white polka dots in a style that reminds me of my favourite era in fashion.

Blue and white is always a classic. The first photo is gorgeous.

Daniella - I vote we get J Crew to come to Canada and work as their promotions team in exchange for clothes and shoes :)
Sandi - completely agree, I don't know where to find the dark purple ones though, I've never seen them around

Blue and white will be beautiful! Those dishes are too die for- I just love them. They look very regal and VERY expensive! And those shoes are fabulous.

i too don't usually go for super girly shoes, with bows and things of that nature, but those would be the exception for sure. and yes the blue and white throws off the bow just perfectly. and those hydrangeas, i've never seen that color, talk about making a table statement.

fabulous finds, indeed! The blue and white china is to die for--great post ;-)

Kristen & Tanya - that's what I love so much about this china! I've been in love with the Blue Willow china for about a decade - this has a similar look but Target pricing :)

Daniella said...

Hahaha i'm in! (I'm not going to lie, i've emailed them 3 times begging them to open a store here, LOL)

Haha - good tactic, I'm not too proud to beg for J Crew :)
