Healthy Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Let me start by saying that ice cream and iced coffee are two of my favorite things on the planet. So winter’s arrival always leaves me in a bit of a predicament: do I abandon icy treats until warmer temps arrive? It just doesn’t seem right. I know, I know, there’s nothing quite like strolling down the sidewalk during the […]

A Swanky Cocktail Party to Toast the New Year

It feels like a new hot spot opens in Austin every weekend (because it does), and our list of must-try restaurants is starting to get a bit out of control. After checking out Eberly’s bar for Landrie’s birthday bash last month, we were smitten, and couldn’t wait to get back to try their contemporary American cuisine in that stunning midcentury dining room. For our most recent girls’ […]

This Surprising Ingredient will Reinvent Your Cheese Board

If you asked Instagram, 2016 could have been the year of the cheese board. And is it any surprise? Few culinary creations are as photogenic as a big wood cutting board brimming with colorful cheeses, fruits, meats (and lots more if you get creative), and I’ve got to admit, it’s a trend I don’t think I’ll get […]

There’s nothing more healing than holiday baking. My favorite time of year is when the weather starts to drop and the Christmas lights come up, and everything about this cranberry ginger oat crumble puts me in the holiday spirit.

Chanel’s Pre-Wedding Picnic at a French Chateau

photography by Sarah Falugo; planned by Mon Plus Beau Jour I’ve been looking forward to the holiday season as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong, but if you asked me what’s really given me butterflies over the last month, it’d have to be my anticipation of this very moment. Finally, this week, Eric and I get […]

A Farmer’s Market Inspired Thanksgiving

When we heard that our favorite LA girl bosses were joining forces to throw a Thanksgiving dinner party, we knew the finished product would be major #goals. Designer Jenni Kayne invited us to check out the farmer’s market-inspired fête she hosted with the Bash Please gals, Suzanne of Chalkboard Mag, and Carly of Pressed Juicery. Our good friend Daphne Oz whipped up a […]

17 Best Hostess Gifts Under $50

We’re always looking for really good hostess gifts to keep on hand during the holidays. You never know when you’ll get the impromptu invite to the in-laws or the boss’s home, and mom taught us better than to show up empty-handed. That said, the most elegant hostess gifts don’t have to be the most expensive ones. We’ve […]

10 Easy Ways to Make Your Holiday Cards Stand Out

Last week, we got into a heated conversation about holiday cards (well, it was about as heated as a conversation about holiday cards can be.) It basically came down to each of us in the office being at different life stages — from being married-with-children to fresh in a new relationship — and because of that, […]

I’m on a personal mission to bring them back, you guys, and I have to admit, my first attempt was a huge success. I’d been dying to have […]

A Dreamy Art Studio Wedding

In case you haven’t noticed, bridal stories are few and far between here on Camille Styles. But we actually love attending weddings, talking about weddings, and finding those (truly rare) gorgeous bridal submissions that come to our inbox. We fell in love with this one from our friends Brita Olsen and Molly O’Rourke and couldn’t wait […]

Get Snowed-In In Style with These 12 Pajama Sets

I’ll never forget winter break 2014. Hanukah had come early that year, and since we don’t celebrate Christmas, we had absolutely nowhere to be between December 23rd and January 5th. It seemed everyone we knew was out of town, we were dog sitting our friends’ adorable frenchie, and between businesses being shut down for the holidays and cold […]

Apple, Blackberry, & Thyme Slab Pie

ed. note: As Thanksgiving approaches, we’ve been spotting tons of “slab pies” around the web and love their rustic look and (most of all) their ability to easily feed a crowd.
