My name is Patricia and I’m a monogram addict! Can I check into monograms anonymous? I would but I don’t think I’m ready to give up my addiction yet. Now that we got that out of the way let me introduce you to Block by Allison Osty. She’s based in Philly and makes the most glam acrylic box clutches that you can monogram! I obviously had to have one and lucky for you, her price points are affordable in terms of acrylic clutches, so now you can get one too and we can twin!

But back to my monogram addiction. I don’t think you can own too many monograms, after all, it’s the symbol of your name, the symbol of… you. From monogramed jewelry, clothes, even finials I have it and support it all. Next up? I think I need a monogram chair like this one by White Horse. What do you think? Do I need the chair? And is there such thing as too many monograms?

Have you picked dup the February issue of Radnor Life & Style Magazine? If so you’ll find me sharing tips for hosting a Galentine’s Day Party. I recruited my friend Marissa of That’s Baum (side note: can you believe this girl dos sis still a college student?) to have some good ol’ girly fun with me for this. We got all prettied up by Something You Onsite and enjoyed eating cookies by The Midnight Baker, sipping on Bar Spoon Beverage Co. mixed cocktails and just looking fabulous in these outfits from ELLIE Main Line.

I’m not going to spill all the tips and tricks here, for that you’ll have to check out the magazine.

Palm Trees & Flamingos

Sweater c/o Duffield Lane, Bracelets, Tote, Similar Shoes, Jeans

Can it please be spring yet? This weekend we had buckets or rain. I basically had a lake front property thanks to the stream in my backyard rising. It was a cold, wet and dreary weekend and I am ready for some sunshine.

Sadly according to Phil we still have a few more weeks of winter but how could you not be happy with these adorable flamingos? This sweater is the perfect spring transition as it’s lightweight but still gives an extra layer. Speaking of warm weather, I have a few trips planned in the next few months to sunnier states such as the Carolina’s and California. This outfit will certainly make its way into my suitcase.

Dinner Plates, Salad Plates, Cups c/o Mackenzie Childs, ChandelierNecklace c/o House Plus Love, Dress c/o Duffield Lane

Louis Vuitton’s LV logo, Gucci’s interlocking G’s and Mackenzie Child’s Courtly Check. What do they all have in common? Their iconic patterns. If you spot this check pattern in a home you immediately know it’s Mackenzie Childs. It’s not just about the name dropping though, it makes such a bold statement yet still remains classic because when it’s broken down its just black and white and a simple check.

I loved putting together this table setting for a modern twist on a garden party. It mixes the glam gilded gold edges on the dinnerware with the casual texture of chambray in the tablecloth. Plus, I love the idea of giving your guest a little flower to take home with them.
