Last Minute Halloween Costume! {Re-Post}

Looking for a last minute and cute costume? Nancy Drew is the answer! If you can still pull off an above the knee plaid skirt, this costume is for you! It's quick, easy and you probably have everything in your closet. Its great for kids and adults! 

- Solid colored flats (penny loafers if you have them!)
- Bobby socks or tights
- Plaid skirt
- Simple classic shirt, button down or polo
- Solid color cardigan sweater
- Headband
- Magnifying glass, Composition notebook and a Flashlight

Even if you don't have all of the above, you can still make it work.  To test my theory on how simple and easy this is, I dressed our youngest up this morning. Charlotte loved being Nancy Drew!  We opted for tights over bobby socks and as you can see in the photos she refused to wear shoes - we'll have to work on that for trick-or-treating!  She wore a polo style shirt instead of a button down and then all she needed were the "accessories"! While I slightly cringed at pairing the black cardigan with a  pink, green and chocolate brown skirt, I got over it - I had to remind myself it is a costume! She loved the magnifying glass and flashlight... after all, how can you look for clues without them!

If you happen to go as Nancy - or encounter a Nancy over the weekend - please send us a picture!!

Happy Halloween!

Holiday at the Beach

If you have been following our blog, you might remember that our family was fortunate enough to spend the month of June on Nantucket Island. It was heavenly and inspiring! I am always working on adding beachy designs to our line - especially holiday photocards. We spent many days at Jetties Beach and our time there inspired this Jetties pattern. The Madras Patch Bright is new to our Holiday Collection and I used some of our photos from Jetties in the samples. If you are using a beach or vacation photo this year for your holiday card, BG may have the perfect photocard for you!

Sky Blue Events - Oxfords & Oysters

Boatman Geller was excited to participate in this fun and important event. It looks like it was a great time - too bad this party wasn't closer to home!

Oxfords & Oysters 2010 was the first annual end-of-summer celebration hosted by Sky Blue Events. The perfect combination of food, libations, live music, and waterfront location presented a unique opportunity to highlight and contribute to the Oyster Recovery Partnership, a vital non-profit organization dedicated to sustaining the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population.
