Hello friends!! It’s been a BUSYYYY few days! Wedding planning is being all wrapped up and final decisions are being made. I cannot believe we are 10 days away. I’ve been a little MIA lately but I wanted to share this adorable plaid skirt and this sweater! I love the detailing on the sweater. The poms add the perfect touch! This one is unfortunately sold out but I have linked a similar one here! This skirt is extremely soft and surprisingly warm! It is thick enough that you could put on some tights under it with some boots and wear it in the colder weather! It fits TTS and is a very good material. These boots are my absolute FAVES. They are so comfortable and stay up on your leg! I wear a size 37 in them and I am a 7.5 usually.
All my Dallas people, it’s COLD! I have been here since last Thursday because I took my bridals yesterday and have been doing wedding stuff all weekend. I tried to go back to Houston today and decided that it wouldn’t be the best decision to drive with the icy conditions. I’m trapped! Ha! I am ready to get back and get packing for the wedding week and honeymoon! So much to do with so little time. I am headed back up here next Monday to finish things up before the wedding on Saturday, the 27th.
I hope everyone had a great Tuesday! Let me know if you have any questions and stay WARM!!
Hey hey! Happy Monday, y’all! I wanted to do a quick post to share this sweater (the perfect grey sweater) with y’all. It is so cozy and looks so cute with so many bottoms! It also comes in white and honestly I just ordered that one too because I love the way it fits so much! You can never have too many sweaters right? I love a casual, everyday look like this with jeans and booties because let’s be honest, it’s what I wear 99.9% of the time! Lol. These booties are sold out but these are almost exactly the same and these jeans are my absolute FAVE.
I’m just gonna apologize now because I’m going to be going crazy this next month! Our wedding is 19 DAYS AWAY! I feel like I have so much to do! Finishing up last minute things, shopping for the honeymoon, packing for the week before the wedding because I’m going up to Dallas a week early, packing for the honeymoon and so much more! I know in reality I am actually caught up on everything but thinking about it all just stresses me out! I am going to do my best to have blog posts every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday but forgive me if I slip up a little bit! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
Happy Happy Thursday! Y’all, it’s COLD in Houston! All through December the weather was so mild and now winter has definitely hit! I love the cold, but part of me is already ready for summer. The cold is so fun to dress for though!
This sweater is one that caught my eye right away! It’s perfect now for the weather but will also look so cute in the spring with shorts. The tie in the back is what I’m obsessed with! I love details that add so much to something. I paired it with these boots and these jeans for a casual, everyday look! These boots are 50% off right now! I seriously wear them all the time. Snag them before they’re sold out! Also, this bag is AMAZING. This is my 3rd Barrington bag because I love them so much! They hold so much and it is so easy to clean! I seriously sprayed mine out in the kitchen sink after my lotion spilled in it. I can’t say enough about them!
Patrick and I are headed to back to Dallas tonight to get our marriage license tomorrow! 23 days until the wedding! Life has officially gotten crazzzzyyyy. I will be in Dallas every weekend in January up until the wedding and am going up a week before the actual day. I know it will all be so worth it, but wow I’m exhausted and tired of driving and I know the dogs are too! Ha! I hope everyone has a great Friday tomorrow! One more day until the weekend!
Hello! Happy New Year! I cannot believe it’s 2018! It’s OFFICIALLY WEDDING MONTH! We are so excited and SO ready to be married.
I wanted to share this adorable sweater dress with you all and also some favorite times of 2017 with you all! This dress is SO soft and surprisingly warm! I got an x-small and it fits TTS! It is perfect to throw on with a pair of boots like I did and makes for an easy, but super put together outfit! Those are my favorite kind! I got these boots during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and I have gotten so much wear out of them! They are also now 50% OFF! Snag them before they’re gone!
2017 flew by and there were so many exciting moments for me. I wanted to share 5 of my favorite things with you all! Starting my blog was such a big thing for me! It was completely out of my comfort zone but I have already met so many amazing people and have had so much fun doing it so far! My goal in 2018 is to stay on a schedule with it and plan posts and content more in advanced! I have always been such a procrastinator so doing this will be a huge thing for me! I hope that you all continue to follow along and thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me thus far!
In January of 2017, my best friend asked me to be his forever! This was by far my favorite day of the year and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us!
In July of 2017, Patrick and I moved into a new house and to a new city! It has been an exciting ride so far! We decided to rent for this year since we weren’t sure exactly what our plans would be. We have been so blessed with the best landlords, too!
My sister got engaged to her forever in November! It has been so fun to get to do some wedding planning together and having someone there to tell you everything is going to be OK when I have a slight freakout moment over wedding stuff! HA!
I was so excited to attend my first blogger Create and Cultivate summit and listen to my dear friends Emily (@champagneandchanel) and Dede (@dressupbuttercup) speak! Listening to them and other bloggers gave me so much motivation and definitely got my creative juices flowing!
My favorite weekend was definitely my bachelorette party weekend in Austin! I can’t even describe to you how much fun we had! You can read all about what we did here! It was definitely a much needed girls weekend and so, so good for the soul!
Thanks for stopping by and again, HAPPY 2018!! Let’s make this year amazing! 🙂
New Year’s Eve is tomorrow! Can you believe 2017 is almost over? I feel like January was yesterday! This year has flown by! We got engaged, moved to a new city, Patrick started a new job and I started my blog all while wedding planning! My mind is going 100 miles an hour right now making final decisions and working with our wedding planner to get everything done! (BTW, if you are in Dallas and need a wedding planner, use Bella Blooms Couture Florals! She is doing my floral and all my planning and is seriously the best. You can check out her Facebook here)
Being that New Years Eve is tomorrow, I wanted to share this fun dress! It is perfect for a night of fun! It would also be perfect for a wedding! I have such a hard time finding sequin clothes that I like because most are uncomfortable but this dress is super comfortable and extremely flattering! I linked a few of my other favorite sequin dresses below!
I hope everyone has a SAFE and FUN NYE! Patrick and I are being lame and staying in at the house! I swear, we are an old 80 year old couple inside young bodies! HA!
Happy Wednesday you guys! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Patrick and I spent the weekend at my parents in Corpus Christi. It was such a nice weekend to spend with family! Now time to get back to reality and back on a life schedule and blogging schedule! Not gonna lie, I’ve been slacking lately!
This sweater gives me major heart eyes! Who doesn’t love a good red sweater? It’s extremely soft and cozy. I will definitely be taking this babe with us to Canada on our honeymoon at the end of January! Speaking of wedding, we are officially a MONTH away from our wedding day! I seriously can’t believe how fast our engagement has gone by. When we got engaged last January, I felt like we had so much time! I am counting down the days and we are both so excited.
I paired this sweater with these cheetah booties and I can’t recommend these to y’all enough. They are super comfortable and match with so much. They are also on sale so it’s the perfect time to grab them before they’re gone.
The Nordstrom half yearly sale is also going on right now until January 2nd and there is some good stuff on sale!! I have linked some of my favorites below! Definitely going to be placing a large order today 😉
Hello friends! Happy Friday! Y’all, I have been SO busy lately! Definitely a good kind of busy but I feel like I haven’t stopped. Wedding craziness has officially started along with the hustle and bustle around the holidays! With Christmas, New Years and our wedding coming up I have definitely started prepping with hair masks, face masks and teeth whitening! So many pictures are in my near future and I want to make sure I look my absolute best. I mean, who wants to look back on your wedding pictures and not like the way you look?! I was super excited to start using the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening kit. I have already noticed such a huge difference in the color of my teeth and it’s only been a few weeks!
When you order the kit, the company sends you a box with the molding and the trays to make your molds in. There are step by step instructions inside which makes it super easy! After you make your impressions, you just put them back in the mailer they include in the box and ship them back to Smile Brilliant! They then make your custom fitted whitening trays and ship them right back to you! They have a super quick turnaround so you can get to whitening! The teeth whitening gel comes in tubes that you line your tray with. It’s not messy and they actually stay on your teeth unlike the other whitening products that I have tried! I usually wear mine while I’m getting ready and I literally forget I have them in! It is so nice to have something comfortable and that stays in and does the job. The best part about them is it doesn’t make my teeth sensitive. I have seriously tried every whitener in the books but they all make my teeth so sore! Smile brilliant is great because it comes with desensitizing gel as well to use after whitening to prevent soreness.
