Happy Friday Everyone! After all that talk yesterday about yoga on the beach, it was cancelled because of the weather! So, of course in true Nico and Lala fashion, we still continued on for happy hour!! It was so hot here in Chicago though that we couldn't even sit outside on a patio! That doesn't happen often in these we drank some cold beer with our friends Maggie and Abby and called it a night! Twas a very fun night of girl talk! Speaking of girls.....ITS A GIRL! Not for either of us of course, but for this expectant mommy Raina! This baby shower is SO unbelievably adorable. Beautiful flower arrangements, pale pink and dove grey N&L swag, a to die for menu, all in a posh New York City venue! Behold the final product! Classy, traditional and just absolutely gorgeous! And how cute is mommy to be?! NO ONE looks like that pregnant, right?! That is some inspiration if I have ever seen it! HA!
We love this!!! And love how our swag can just make an event so chic and cohesive!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am headed south tomorrow to go see a very special little man-- My best friend's new baby boy BOONE!!!! Cannot wait! XO, Nico and Lala

Gasparilla Inn Florida Wedding!

Well last week we hit a milestone and checked it off the bucket list! WE were featured on Style Me Pretty! We absolutely love their blog (who doesn't, right?) and were so honored that a wedding we helped with, was featured! The photographer, Concept Photography did an AMAZING job on their big day! Such creative and fun pictures! The seafoam and coral combination is one of our favorites and bride Katie did such a fantastic job using chevron and the spectacular surroundings to make this special day one of a kind for she and Alan! It just screams preppy, coastal fun, and the majestic scenery of the Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande, Florida just tops it all off! Enjoy these fabulous pics!!!
Are they not gorgeous pics?! Hope everyone's summer is going great! We southerners are reveling in the 100 degree weather here in Chicago today! We are having a first after work today...BEACH YOGA!!! For those of you that don't know, which we didn't before we moved here, there is a BEACH in Chicago. Let me tell you people, that lake looks a LOT like the ocean...never in my life. So, we have beach yoga after work with friends then HAPPY HOUR!!! Yay for summer days...and NIGHTS! MAYBE we will share some sweaty pics on Facebook...maybe. NO promises! XO, Nico and Lala
