The holidays really mean two things around here: one being that cake and cookies are always a good idea, and two, my mint green, gold, and white color combination obsession is in season for a full month. Let’s just say I always run with that for as long as I can, and H&M is helping support the habit.
My ideal holiday style keeps you party ready either as a host or party-goer, plus a few gift ideas on my Pinterest board for gift giving for everything in between. And of course, there always has to be a DIY…
For a small intermission between room makeover posts, you can see my Lovely Lady feature on Emma Dime today sharing my summer uniform, and I mean that literally.

I’ve still managed for it to be filled with loads of good memories but I can’t help but think I don’t stop and appreciate them enough. I had to remind myself of that when the better part of me was convincing myself that I had too much work to do to go on a long weekend trip starting today, but I don’t want to be in such a routine that I let my whole life pass me by because of work.
All of this to say wish me luck as I let go of the death grip on my computer to head to Gardner State Park… and that there are zero bee encounters while I’m there, but I won’t go into that history lesson right now. In other news, I thought I’d share with you a few updates with things that are going on behind the scenes here at Sugar & Cloth, and a few of my current favorite things from the part of July that I was able to catch…
