Accents: Highlights of the June Issue

An emphasis on some of the best moments of the new issue, summertime looks, over-the-top cocktails and more.

Spice it Up

There are few beverages you can dress up quite like the bloody mary, and we did just that in our BrunchFest recipe shoot. Along with sky-high celery stalks, pickle kabobs and crispy bacon, our serveware got a glow-up, too, thanks to a few perfect little pinch bowls and utensils from Box Turtle (which also happens to have some tasty bloody mary mixes if you want to hack the recipe).


Gifting Golf

We’ve got birdies on the brain for this year’s Father’s Day gift guide, and one reason is because we’re already counting down the days until the inaugural Simmons Bank Championship at Pleasant Valley Country Club this fall, the second stop of the PGA Tour Champions Playoffs. We may still be four months away, but we’ve certainly got our eye on October.

Standout Quote

“The art museum is a place of togetherness and community. It is a true display of Arkansas’ strength, and to be a part of this forward movement is to be a part of history.”

A Pop of Pink

“Everyone knows a pink ribbon represents breast cancer awareness,” stylist Josie Burnett says. “For our photo shoot with the CARTI doctors, I wanted to incorporate this meaningful color into their wardrobes (something they often do in their working hours) as well as the backdrop. Barbara/Jean had a beautiful selection to choose from that fit the color scheme and feel I wanted to achieve. Dr. Robertson wears a long, textured Purotatto dress, and Dr. Smith-Foley wears a playful, ‘Palm Royale’-esque tie dress. The Nest’s pink-toned decor brought it all together.”


Blooming Beauty

“You always hope for the best when an outdoor shoot is on the schedule, and the weather did not disappoint for Madison’s!” art director Emma Devine says. “The Old Mill is so dreamy this time of year. The contrast of the lush greens and pink blooms were a perfect match for the floral fashions we pulled.”
