forgotten favorite

Lovers and Friends dress, Gap jacket, Banana Republic bag, Joie sandals, Kate Spade earrings, Nordstrom BP. sunglasses

A while ago when Lovers and Friends first came out with this print, it was popping up everywhere.  I loved it, and thought the subtle neon would be perfect for spring and summer.  I ordered it, put it in my closet, and totally forgot about it.  It was way too cold to wear it then anyway and it was such an exciting surprise when I pulled it out to wear this weekend.  The weather was beautiful and we got to spend time outside and also got a lot of much needed things done.  What did you guys do this weekend? xo

PS- How cute are these Kate Spade earrings?  I got them as a sweet gift for my bridal shower and am breaking them out a little early.  Exactly two months till I’m a Mrs.!

my beautiful bridal shower

bridalshower1

I wanted to share some photos with you guys from my bridal shower last weekend.  Everything turned out so beautifully, and I can’t say thank you enough to my family and friends who were involved in the planning.  Wedding planning can be such a distracting process, where you get caught up in so many finer details.  In the end it’s just nice to have people come together and spend time with the ones that you love.  Sorry for the overload of pictures but I wanted to share it all!  Have a great weekend everyone.  xo

the little white dress

Bailey44 dress, Sole Society heels, Kendra Scott earrings, ASOS clutch 

I hunted for a while to find the perfect dress for my bridal shower before finding this one.  I loved it as soon as I put it on, with it’s low square back and fun sleeves.  Little white dresses are my favorite for summer, and I allowed myself to wear one a little early as an almost-bride.  I can’t wait to slip it on again when I’m on my honeymoon as a newlywed. :)

My bridal shower Saturday was filled with so much fun and love I can’t even describe it.  Actually, I will describe it, in a few days when I share the pictures here on the blog.  You can  also check out a fun series I did last spring where I showed you four different ways to style a little white dress.

floral frenzy

Bloomingdale’s maxi dress (old-shop similar favorites below), 525 America sweater, Madewell necklace, Tory Burch flats, Banana Republic bag, Ray Ban sunglasses

As soon as the weather turns warmer I reach for my favorite maxi dresses and skirts.  I have a ton of floral printed ones (seen here & here).  Call me floral crazy, but I actually get more use out of the printed maxis then my solid colored ones.  I also love throwing a sweater or jacket on over a dress so people are wondering if you’re actually wearing a skirt.  It never hurts to keep people guessing.  You can shop some of my other favorite floral maxis below.

I wore this last weekend when we went to a tasting at our wedding venue.  I can’t believe the wedding is only two months away!  Going to the tasting and finalizing the menu made everything feel so close and real.  I can hardly believe how fast time has gone by.  This weekend my family and bridal party are throwing me a shower, and I can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.  You can keep up by following along here .

Gap shirt, 7FAM jeans, Tory Burch flats (similar), Banana Republic bag, Kendra Scott earrings, H&M scarf

A few weeks ago I did a major closet overhaul.  I always reorganize with each passing season, but this time I forced myself to get rid of a lot.  By the end I had a huge bag for donations and as a result, a much leaner selection of clothes.  Ever since then getting ready has been so much easier and faster.  Not only because there’s less to choose from, but the pieces still hanging in my closet are quality and can be worn many different ways.  I know everyone says quality over quantity when it comes to clothes, but it really is true.  And quality doesn’t have to mean expensive!  This shirt from the Gap was bought a few years ago on sale, and has literally been worn fifty different ways.

As someone who has spent hours (and I mean hours) standing in front of an overstuffed closet and whining about not having anything to wear, take my advice.  Use this spring to slim down the closet and with it, the getting ready stress!  Or you could always install one of those rotating closets like Cher from Clueless.  All these years later, and that’s still my closet dream.

you’re my lobster

Wildfox tee, Express Blazer (similar), Gap jeans, Docle Vita booties, Tory Burch bag, Gorjana necklace, Ray-ban sunglasses

Has there ever been a better TV moment, than the Ross/Rachel, “he’s her lobster” episode?  It’s arguably one of the most touching TV moments of all time.  Obviously this tee made me think of that moment, and also made me excited for the approaching summer.  Lobster is one of my favorite treats, and I can’t wait to spend a warm evening with my fiance eating lobsters outside by the water.  I also can’t wait to wear this tee multiple ways, like over this bathing suit I just ordered, and with these shorts.  Lobster for all!
