V257: CECI INSPIRATIONS – HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

One of my favorite times of the year is upon us! The 4th of July is always so festive with family fun and fireworks. Like so many others, I love to celebrate at the beach and with a barbecue – there’s nothing better or more quintessentially summer! In my family, we always end up by the water. It’s relaxing to disconnect, feel the sun on your skin and enjoy the slower pace.

To kick off this holiday properly, Hinckley Yachts invited us to spend a day on the water aboard their new T34 and we couldn’t resist. Alan is a huge sailing fan (which is probably an understatement), so Mason and I tagged along for some fun in the sun. The talented duo Ali + Julie captured our nautical adventure, and Alan was like a kid in a candy store – truly on cloud nine!

If you’re planning to spend your 4th (or just your next summer event) by the sea, then you don’t want to miss my nautical style picks. New to nautical? Then start with one of my faves – The Ropes’ Cape Elizabeth bracelet (made with marine-grade rope and hardware) adds a subtle touch to your look.

Lastly, soak up some extra inspiration to put you in a celebrating mood with Ceci Bride Krysta and her Fort Lauderdale, Florida, wedding aboard a yacht. Yes, she got married on the water!

Be safe everyone and enjoy this holiday weekend!

Ceci

P.S. An extra special thanks to Ted Lahey of Hinckley Yachts. If you’re ready to hop aboard a Hinckley, then he’s your man.

V257: SAVVY STYLE ADVICE – KRYSTA, REAL BRIDE

Savvy Style Advice
Ceci New York Bride - Krysta

KRYSTA
Enjoy the process. While it can be frustrating at times, it’s such a memorable time of your life. When it gets to be too much, take a deep breath and enjoy a glass of wine. The thing I learned the most: Ask for help! Your friends and family want to help – they are just as excited as you are.

What It’s Like to Be a Ceci New York Bride:
Being a Ceci Bride was a dream come true. The moment I saw Ceci’s invitations, I knew she had created exactly what I was looking for. The staff and support were amazing. They understand what you are going through and are there for you every step of the way. I remember one afternoon speaking with Meghan on the phone about the wedding and she could tell I was getting stressed – she was so calming and understanding.
