There’s nothing like a nip in the air, a Prosecco candle burning, and a well placed dazzling accessory to bring out true holiday spirit. From a casually chic sparkle sweatpant to an ultra formal Tory Burch jacquard dress, we know just what you’ll want to wear to stay festive. We’ve found pieces you’ll want to run errands in, and run the bar cart in. Which one is your favorite?

ThanksgivingEntertaining-13Web

You’ve already chosen your menu, pressed your linens, and decided on the perfect bottle white wine help you dedicate your toast. Thanksgiving is a precious time for us, and we’d love to share some ideas that bring our family closer together. These are impactful, and best of all – cost nothing but the love in your heart.

1.In my family, we create a “Blessings Jar” dedicated to the patriarchs of our family. Each of us will write reasons we feel blessed to have the member of honor in their lives. On Thanksgiving we share the jar with the recipients, and it’s always the highlight of the day. This will surely make your day even more memorable.

2. A way to interact with each guest at your holiday table is to place everyone’s name in a jar and pass it around. Each person will choose a name and then share a reason or two why they are thankful for the person whose name they’ve chosen. It’s an easy activity and will be special for everyone on your guest list.

3. We typically always have some extra ingredients that we over-bought to prepare the big meal. This year, think about taking those extras and creating one more dish than you need. Then, take this dish to a local business whose employee’s are working instead of at home, drop it off at a hospital, or a local homeless shelter. This small act of kindness will be immeasurable in the eyes of the recipients. To be able to share your blessings is truly one of the grandest ways to give thanks.

Being thankful never goes out of style. Stay classic.

This signature style post is close to home, because here at the shoppe we were lucky enough to help Beth and Danielle display their signature style through their branding. Beth and Danielle are the two creative powerhouses behind Palm Beach Lately, a lifestyle brand and blog based out of – you guessed it – Florida. We hope you enjoy learning about these two beauties as much as we did!

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are?
PBL: Our products are a great representation of how we like to entertain. We often host and use the products we created and sell in our online shop from our pillows to cutting boards, cups and napkins. Danielle and I love working which each other and I think it shows in our photoshoots. It’s not just a job to us, we really enjoy what we do and the time we get to spend together.

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
PBL: Our new branding that Emily created is the best representation of not only our company, but also us. We love pink, mint, black and gold and you can see those colors weaved through both of our homes. We are Florida girls and love Palm Beach, pineapples and flamingos.

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
PBL: Signature style is something that is the best representation of yourself. 

Palm-Beach-West-Elm-8

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?

PBL:
Beth: 1) Determined. When I have a goal, I don’t stop until I get there. 2)Outgoing. I love people and have since I was little. I love getting to know people and their stories. I also enjoy mentoring younger girls with business and life advice. 3) Optimistic. In life and business I am thankful to see the bright side.

Danielle: 1) Artistic. I am artistic at heart and thrive on creatively expressing myself through fashion, home and hobbies. This gene runs in our family and I love passing down what I have learned from my Grandma and Mom to my own daughters. 2) Organized. I adore practical spaces, systems, calendars and anything else that simplifies, makes life easier and creates a calm, peaceful space. I can often be found organizing areas of our home to better fit our needs and donating old items to charity. 3) Authentic. I really believe in being true to myself and creating a life that is unique to my skills, traits and experiences. In today’s world it’s easier than ever to copy others, so it’s very important to put your own spin and style on all of the inspiration that is available out there.

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.
Beth: 1) Engagement ring – It’s a representation of our love and loyalty. 2) Louboutins – They were a 30th birthday gift from my husband and are sophisticated yet sexy. 3) Dining Room table – It was one of our first purchases for our new house and reflects my love for combining natural elements with modern style.

Danielle: 1) Pictures/Gallery wall – Over the past several years, we have captured life’s really special moments in beautiful photos. The pictures from our wedding and of our growing family are priceless to us, and I love the way we created a gallery wall in our living room around the tv. It was a risky project, but my husband did a wonderful job getting it just right!   2) Wedding dress – There is something so magical about a wedding dress to me. It tells a whole love story and is one of the most defining style pieces a woman will wear. I love holding on to my dress and dreaming about showing it to our girls one day! 3) Map necklace – I love, love, love Three Jane and her amazing Map Necklaces now sold at A.Joffe. I chose the map/address of our first Palm Beach Lately office to always remember where and how it all began.

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
PBL: I think Pinterest is a great way to find your style. When I was decorating our home and would go back to look at what I pinned, I started to see consistency in what I loved – monochromatic with pops of color.

Pops of color, attention to detail, and coastal living. We couldn’t love this duo more! Thank you so much, Beth and Danielle, for allowing us to feature you on our Signature Style series.

Sometimes, you get to work with one of your idols. This was the case when it came to the fabulous Katie Kime. It felt like happy hour the second she agreed to be a part of our signature style series. Grab a cocktail and get excited, we present a true style crush – Katie Kime!

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are? 
KK: Prints and Color. That’s kind of what we’re known for, obsessed with and driven by. I love to pair unexpected prints together as well as bold, unexpected colors together.

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
KK: I think signature style is something you’ve really come up with on your own and consistently carry throughout your wardrobe, house or other designs. I once dated a guy who said “every time I see you have a piece of neon on”… I had never noticed it but sure enough that was part of my signature and has continued to be. A bright pop of color always seems to find it’s place into our store, my home and wardrobe. But others may do the same thing with white tees or a neutral palette…

IMG_8371.1

IMG_6812.1

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
KK: Bright. Bold. Feminine. I really feel that those describe me personally and professionally as well as theme I generally design by. Take for instance our maxi skirt. I custom design the bright fabrics we use to make them and they’re often more modern prints. But I love adding a high cinched waist to their design that’s also feminine and reminiscent of women not just today but through the ages.

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? 
KK: Tassel earrings, our brass and lucite bar cart (handmade here in Austin, TX), and our color block gracie cape.

IMG_8507.1

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
KK: I think it would be trust your gut. I think a lot of people, especially those maybe not particularly inclined to trust themselves from a design sense, don’t realize they probably already know what their signature style is. If you’re always drawn to animal print, find a way to make that a part of your signature. If black and white just totally do it for you, trust it and go with it. I think often people really know intuitively what their style is but trusting themselves to go with it and put it out there is the bigger battle.

This week, we had the joy of getting to know more about Kimberly Whitman for our readers. She’s been a household name around the studio ever since we were able to lend our monograms to her new book, Monograms for the Home. Another name we can call her is “friend”. We’re positive you will be able to tell from this short interview what a truly warm, inviting, and happy presence she has.

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?

KW: I just choose what I like when I’m faced with a choice! I figure that if it resonates with me, tells a story, or makes me smile, it suits my style!

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?

KW:When I think of some of my most stylish friends, I must say that they are hard to box in. In other words, they are always evolving and open to new things and new looks. I like that! To have signature style, you have to have curiosity about life and design and be driven to discover what you like.

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?

KW: Classic, Joyous, Colorful? I don’t know! That is so tough. What three words would you use for me? I’m so curious, after sharing these photos, etc, what you would say!

EMc: You know, Kimberly, after reveling in all the gorgeous photos you sent to us and reading your answers… we would absolutely use the words vanguard, whimsical, and joyous.

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.

KW: Oh gosh – that is so hard! I love “stuff” and cherish the memories that come along with so many of my belongings. One of them is certainly my engagement ring. It was my husband’s great grandmothers ring. All of the ladies in his life wore it and that means so much to me. It is a sapphire (colorful and blue!), an heirloom, and a very classic and lady like style. I adore it and I think it completely suits me even though it wasn’t made for me! I also love the bracelet that features the dates my children were born and my monogram by Hannah Fergeson. I wore it in my author photo for my new book, Monograms for the Home. I also cherish my son’s portrait by Stella Ehrich. She is so talented and did such a beautiful job capturing who he is. She spent time with us and got to know him before she started painting him and the final painting is just magical because he really shines through! The best part, besides our new friendship with Stella, is that she even painted his toes that cross over – just like my father’s toes do!

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?

KW: Explore and try new things! Mix and match things that resonate with you. Edit like crazy and you will probably find that the things that stay around you all have a common thread.
