How was your weekend? We spent ours in Palm Springs mostly working and lamenting how life has become one giant to-do list. Being an adult is a bummer sometimes, isn’t it? Oh well, at least we got out to play for a little bit when we went to pick up this guy from Trina Turk. Becoming a parent is one of the plusses of becoming an adult, right? And I couldn’t be happier to welcome Harry Elephante, Jr. to the family.

Here’s what I wore to meet our golden boy…  Continue reading


how to style a bart cart; kelly golightly's house

Fall always makes me want to nest. You too? Here are a few small vignettes around our apartment that I snapped today that are making me smile. It’s really the little things, isn’t it?

Beautiful roses, given to me by the lovely people at Glade for hosting the Emmy’s viewing party, sprucing up my vintage bar cart.


Striped straws make any drink more fun, don’t you think, even if they do get soggy.

Audrey, my new Prada glasses I couldn’t resist getting after hosting an event at ILORI, on a favorite cake plate (that I just knocked off of the table and broke as I typed this — thankfully there are more at World Market — oy!) and a lion-adorned clutch from Nila Anthony that came as a surprise in the mail yesterday (and which I will probably accidentally spill red wine on tonight).


This little piggy…and some lovely handwritten notes I received this week.


Snail mail is the best, isn’t it?


Do you have any favorite little vignettes, moments or pieces around your house that make you smile?

Happy Emmys Weekend!

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Fred Baby’s parents arrived last night so we’ll be enjoying Palm Springs with them for a few days and then on Sunday, it’s Emmys time (8e/5c on CBS)! Will you be watching?

I love awards shows – okay, I mostly love watching the red carpet and seeing what stars are wearing – but I’m also excited to watch Neil Patrick Harris host. And I’m doubly excited to be playing host myself – of a fun Emmys viewing party I’m throwing in collaboration with Glade!


You know how our feelings are so intertwined with smell? How a certain scent can not only take you straight back to your youth or a favorite moment from your past, but can also make you feel like nothing else can? Glade really gets that and is all about celebrating the best feelings, so we’ll be teaming up on this viewing party to create the best feelings for our guests – there will be a red carpet & the location is super glam! – and I’m sure we will witness many a nominee have memorable moments as well.

Join us by following along on Instagram and Twitter – we’ll be using the hashtag #bestfeelings – and check back Monday for all the party pics here on Kelly Golightly. Until then, wishing you a weekend full of magical moments and the best feelings xx!
