CEDAR & RUSH STYLE GUIDE

SPRING 2017


P. 2

LOOK FORWARD TO RAINY DAYS! I never knew how fun rain could be until I got a pretty umbrella that works! The see through material allows you to stay covered and see where you’re walking! Not a wet hair in place.


HELLO SPRING! Hooray! It’s officially Spring my friends. This time of year brings new

life, energy and color! It’s the perfect time to freshen up the mundane and set the tone for the rest of your year. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but adding style to your everyday gives you a spring in your step! The good news? Anyone can learn how to style their daily routine. That’s why I created this Spring Style Guide! It’s intended to bring joy to the things you touch and do every single day. These subtle touches (that don’t cost a lot of money or time) make life a little brighter. I truly belive it’s the little things that make a BIG difference in your happiness. Here are nine of those “little things” to add to your day!

Add a little cheer and fresh style to your home. After work, grab a posy of tulips. Thyme change! Garnish your plates and drinks. Keep potted herbs plentyful and handy. A little parsley here and a little rosemary there does wonders! Host a tea party to welcome spring. An excuse to catch up with the girls! Clean out your makeup bag for a faster morning routine. Schedule a pedi (you need one!) Order new sandals in hopes for warm weather. Last season’s are scroungy! Take your trench to the dry cleaners. A well pressed jacket makes any outfit classy! Transform your closet with all matching hangers. Replace your linens with fluffy new towels.

We love our neutrals - they go with everything! However as soon as spring rolls around, it’s fun to get into color. But who wants to buy a whole new wardrobe just to satisfy a trend? Not me. An easy fix? Tie a colorful scarf to your handbag! If your handbag is print, go for a solid color scarf. If simple, go for a bold print to jazz it up. Like this! Now a white top and denim has a whole new facelift.


P. 7

This Hermes scarf entails a very special story. It was gifted to my mom from our dear family friends during her chemo treatments while fighting breast cancer. She prefered to go bald, but lets me borrow it when I’ve been a good girl! To me it’s beautiful but more importantly, symbolizes strength and courage. As for my mom? She’s been cancer free for 8 years! Go Cindy!

With all the weddings, showers and parties popping up, why not make them interesting! You may even learn something new about the people you know best!

IF YOU COULD ONLY HAVE ONE OF THE THREE, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE? A.) A CELEBRITY CLOSET B.) A WINE CELLAR & CIGAR ROOM C.) A SECRET ROOM DISGUISED WITH A BOOKCASE.

P. 8

The interesting thing about this question, is the answer tells a lot about people! You can easily swap in other things too - such as a mosaic swimming pool; movie theatre; garden maze, etc. For some reason, people love to dream, which is why it’s always a hit. As for me? The secret room 100%! What about you?

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE? It’s bound to strike up something interesting! The explanation as to “why” is the best part. Mine is, “The early bird gets the warm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.” Think about it.

WHAT’S THE BEST MEAL YOU’VE EVER HAD? When, where, how and what you ate - this is a loaded question! Not to mention score a recommendation for yourself to try.

KEEP TULIPS F R O M

You know how tulips droop after a few days? Well my mom just showed me the coolest trick for keeping them upright and fresh. Which means longer lasting flowers, less trips to the grocery store and saving dollars! 1. Cut the stems flat, versus at an angle (like they recommend with most flowers).

P. 13

2. Poke a hole with a toothpick at the top of the stem. This allows air bubbles to escape - which makes the blooms droop! 3. Pack them short and tight in a small vase. Tall vases with long stems appear skimpy. Short stems create an illusion of a luxurious and full bouquet! Even when you use the same amount of flowers.


P. 14

New, fluffy towels perk up a bathroom and make it feel sparkling clean. I always put a pile on the guest bed for company as a warm welcome.


P. 15

SHEETS MY GRANDMOTHER’S SECRET: Only buy percale cotton sheets. Percale is the weave of the fabric and gives you that crisp, airy feeling we all love. It’s like the cool side of the pillow everytime.


E DITOR ’S NOTE This marks our first Spring in our new home! Sean and I are ecstatic to see what blooms are hiding underground. We moved in right before Winter, so it’s a surprise. I’m praying for tulips and lilac bushes!

P. 16

We are FINALLY getting around to sprucing up our place and making it “us”. Our interior designer, Sam of Shining on Design, designed our bathroom. The wallpaper just arrived! We also ordered a stunning sectional from Walter E. Smithe. The sofa is the biggest and most important piece of furniture - so we invested in a quality brand that lasts. The remaining decor will easily fall into place. Stay tuned for lots of home reveals this season. White, flouncy blouses have taken over my closet. They pair perfectly with skirts, dress pants and jeans! Now I feel like I always have something to wear - whether it be errands, date night or rosé with the gals. I also organized my closet. Just need to order those matching hangers... My first trip to Charleston is this April! Have you been? I’d love your recommendations. I plan to eat alllll the biscuits and honey. Lastly, expect to see so much more on C&R. These looks and ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. So check back regularly! Learn how to rock this season’s trends with your current wardrobe; affordable entertaining tips (that you can bust out for unexpected guests); and all the details of these looks. Cheers to happy days and good times!
