Saturday Style

Because what's better on a weekend than a cozy outfit that can be worn to brunch or the farmer's market? I love the feminine detail on that sweatshirt and the perfect amount of distressing on those denim shorts.

This is my dream weekend outfit! 


Blush Boho

Shortly after we got engaged, I started casually shopping for all the events that were to come - showers, rehearsal, honeymoon, etc. I had the foresight to know that if I waited until I really needed to find something, it would be nowhere in stores. Isn't that annoying?

I wasn't finding many white dresses that I liked, at the time, so when I stumbled upon this beauty I  couldn't resist. (Unfortunately, that was back in January or February, so the dress is no longer available.) At the time, I didn't know how many showers I was going to have, but it worked out perfectly for me to wear this number to Mike's family shower. It was fun to do the classic white lace at my side's shower and then something a little more relaxed at his.

And! I think those earrings are the ones I'm going to wear on our Wedding Day! Ironically, I don't wear a lot of earrings in my regular life. Or jewelry, in general. I'll wear my personalized disc and bar necklace every day, and occasionally add a watch, but that's typically all I have on. So, I wasn't sure about doing statement earrings for the wedding, but they just look so perfect with my gown, so that's the plan.


Saturday Style

Summer weekends are the best thing since sliced bread, am I right? Actually, I would amend that saying to be "...the best thing since cinnamon rolls", but that's a different conversations.

(Yeah, I totally had a dream about cinnamon rolls last night)

Living in the city in the warm months reminds me why I spent all those freezing cold winters here. There's just something in the air - everyone is buzzing from the Vitamin D or something. Mike and I spend a lot more time walking, too. When we would typically take the el or drive to a particular restaurant or activity when it's cool, we will take the extra 20 minutes to enjoy the weather and walk instead. There really is something to say for getting all that fresh air on the weekend - it makes the indoor work week feel a little less constricting.

Plus, I just love the color palette of warm weather clothes. I love light, airy, soft tones. Blushes, whites, nudes, give them all to me! Even better, mixing them together and creating a pretty and functional look for an evening out.


Coffee Conversations

Happy Friday! 
I'm sitting in in this exact spot, sipping my morning coffee and listening to the rain fall outside. It's as delightful as you can imagine. I have my second dress fitting this morning, so I'm heading out to the suburbs in just a couple of hours. I'm excited to see my gown again! 

Speaking of wedding things, we hit the one month mark yesterday! It truly has gone by so quickly and I know that the next four weeks are going to just fly

How stinking cute is this Pom Pom Clutch? We leave for my mystery bachelorette trip in a week and this beauty is definitely making the cut! 

We're doing $8 mugs all weekend long at Elisabeth Ashlie! You can shop them here

I just rediscovered the greatness that is Aerie sleepwear and loungewear. If you're a bralette girl, this one and this one are must-haves. These are so cozy, too. 

I'm hoping to make some serious progress with packing up all non-essentials this weekend. My goal has been to do as much packing for our move before our wedding, which means basically before July 1st. We'll see how it goes! 

Have a great weekend! 

Summer Neutrals

I'm a neutrals girl, through and through. We all know this. So, it makes sense that my favorite outfit would be made up completely of neutrals. Summer, to me, is the season of COLOR. I feel like everyone is happy to be outside again, so they like to wear their feelings with bright hues, bold patterns, and fun details. Meanwhile, I'm over here like, " that blush pink? Oh, I can't. Too bright." 

Okay, that was a bit of an exaggeration, but you get it

These wrap cardigans have been the most-worn items in my closet in the last couple months, by far. I'm actually a little bummed by the 90º weather we've been having because it means I can't wear one outside.

Alas, before I know it, it will be 50º again and all will feel right (and not sweaty) in my world again.
