DULY NOTED :: 10.24

coco-kelley-weekend-links-10.24

This was a big huge busy week. And this Sunday is a big day … my birthday. 34. Holy shit. (Sorry. But, seriously… 34!?) To some of you that might seem young. To some, old. To me, it’s somewhere right in the middle. Not quite where I thought I’d be and in some ways so […]

    Well happy birthday! I hope it all goes marvelous! And… I know. Each year at every birthday I have a little WTF!? moment. I can remember my 13th, 15th, 17th, 25th birthday like it was yesterday. I remember the kiddie parties, the dancing in club parties and everything in between. And in April 2015 I’ll be 29 years old with a 1 year old and husband and sometimes I think ‘How the heck did this happen so fast?!’ Lol am I the only one that thinks this way?

    Happy Birthday Coco! Oh to be 34 again. Sigh. Live it up. Loved your friend’s shop, Grandiflora. Looking forward to seeing what you curate on ebay. MS’s discovery and promotion of US artisans is one of my favorite contributions she has made. Enjoy your birthday weekend.

Chico’s Gone Wild!

chicos-campaign-holiday-style2

You may remember me blogging last week about a fun little partnership I did with Chico’s for fall, sharing my tips for packing for a weekend getaway (it’s all about the mix and match-ability!). Well, this week we’re upping the style selections by pairing two of my most favorite things – leopard print and black! […]

SETTING A RICH TABLE FOR FALL

dark floral tabletop coco kelley_2

I tend to go a bit overboard when it comes to entertaining – and especially when we put together shoots for coco+kelley. I love dreaming up beautiful details for a tabletop, but sometimes all you really need is one really gorgeous centerpiece to set the mood…   I love the way the jewel-tone florals look set […]

    Wow this table looks stunning! The rich autumnal colours of the flowers look so strong against the black ground, and are perfectly highlighted by the warm tones of the wood and the gold cutlery!
    I would love to eat there!!

HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL :: THE SWAMP SPICE FLIP

the swamp spice flip cocktail recipe coco kelley2

Now, unless you’re actually hosting a Swamp-themed Halloween party like ours, you may not want to give such a delicious drink such an atrocious name. In this case, however, it fit quite nicely. But, if you’d like to give it a proper name, we’ll call it the Spiced Pear Flip… If you’re feeling so bold, you might […]

GET THE LOOK :: HEAD-TO-TOE GREY

the-the-look-head-to-toe-grey

First Birkenstocks, now endless layers of grey? Seattle sure seems to be right on trend these days, doesn’t it? But when you actually live in the grey (or with the guys who are still wearing socks with their birks) the trend doesn’t always seem quite as appealing. However – being a black-and-white girl myself, I happen to […]

    I thought it was silly when I heard grey was going to be a huge fall trend, but now I’ve found my closet full of it. I ADORE that chunky grey knit in the second photo.
