    Royal Wedding: Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Recap

    Did you watch the Royal Wedding yesterday? The coverage started here on the east coast at 5am and I did not wake up that early, but I did wake up at 7:30 and watched from the beginning of what I recorded. Since I could fast forward, I was able to skip over some of the boring parts. I mostly wanted to just see the people arriving and pick out all the famous people, and then of course all the wedding stuff with the royals like their arrivals and the ceremony. After the wedding was over, I immediately began rounding up photos to recap the wedding. Before I get in to…

    Sequins + Tulle

    If you watched my Instastories over the weekend you probably caught one of my various photos and videos from my friend’s beautiful wedding. Today I’m sharing my wedding guest look! I began looking for a dress for the wedding in the late spring because I didn’t know how long it would take me to find one I liked, plus I would be away for a week at the beginning of July and I didn’t want to be rushing and stressed to find something. I didn’t quite know what I wanted, but I did know that I what I really wanted was something with mixed textures i.e. solid top and feathered skirt.…

    3 Dresses, 1 Wedding Weekend

    Over the weekend I went to my friend’s beautiful wedding. This is the same friend who I gave a shoutout to in a post way back in 2014 who I said has an affinity for elbow patches! So anyway, her wedding was this past weekend with various events leading up to the ceremony and reception. I did not attend all the events, but I did attend her Mehndi on Friday night (where we ate dinner, socialized, and got our henna done), the ceremony on Sunday morning, and the reception Sunday night. With all these events, I of course, wore 3 different dresses so I thought this was a great opportunity to share with…

    Green & Gold Wedding [Guest] Look

    It’s the start of a new week and I’m settling in back at home. If you’ve been following me in my last few posts, you know that I was away for a long weekend in Chicago for my friends’ wedding. I shared some looks from the wedding festivity filled weekend and I’m topping it off with the look I went with for the official wedding ceremony and reception. I got a beautiful dress for the occasion from Nordstrom Rack. Since it’s from Rack, you know I got it deeply discounted which makes it even more beautiful! It is essentially a champagne slip with a sheer emerald green overlay. The overlay is…

    Floral Wedding Guest OOTD

    Happy Monday! Had to double check what day it is because I’m starting to lose track of the days with all this traveling from place to place lately. Yesterday was my cousin’s wedding in Toronto, which if you missed it – I’m in Toronto for a few days! I wore a very summery, v-neck floral dress that I found for a steal! Dress: Lauren Ralph Lauren via Marshalls Shoes: Lulu Townsend via DSW Clutch: Urban Expressions via DSW Ring: (gift)   The sun was really bright so I had to put some sunglasses on and try to take a non-squinty picture. You know me and my florals and this dress seemed perfect…

    Beach Exploring & Wedding [Guest] Bells

    On Saturday, I had some time to relax and explore the sights before I had to get back to my hotel and get ready for my friends’ wedding. The day was a beautiful, warm, sunny day despite the weather forecast which predicted an overcast, cool day — perfect for walking around the beach and for a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony. Here’s a look at my day through pictures (and some captions)! Sweater: Love Culture Tank Top: Hanes Jeans: Express Brunch at W Cafe in Newport Beach was amazing. I enjoyed my meal very much as did my two friends. We found the restaurant through Yelp and it’s a little bit…

    Dream Day Style Challenge

    Today, I’m bringing you a wedding look I came up with for Lover.ly‘s Dream Day Style Challenge. I was invited to participate in this challenge and it was a lot of fun! Lover.ly is full of ideas for all things wedding and while I’m not planning a wedding of my own right now, it is always fun to look at ideas for dresses, decorations, invitation designs etc. Lover.ly sent me 3 images to pick from: city glam, beach affair, or rustic soiree. After choosing one of the wedding settings, I was to come up with a wedding day look. I chose city glam! I’ve never envisioned a beach wedding for…
