Warmer Weather – Blog Post Updates


Kimono here, tank here, shorts here, shoes here and here sunglasses here, necklace here.

Hey guys!!! I’ve totally been MIA lately, but the weather has been so cold it’s hard to go outside on the weekends and take pictures as well as blog post shoots. Tom is great, but he’s not THAT willing ;). Plus we have been super busy with a lot of wedding stuff, and just living our lives outside of work. I apologize in advance for how pale I am (AHHH), but I had to blog this outfit for you because I love it! I got my regular size in the shorts and kimono and love them. I had to size up in the tank because they were low in stock, but i’d almost rather have it larger so it fits looser. It is a v neck tank which is so flattering, and I paired it with my new Sam Edelmans that i’ve worn probably 4 times the past week. I love the platform detail on them that makes you just a little bit taller, and the cute bow detail! They are such a steal – I linked them from two different places above. Definitely one of my favorite shoe purchases!!

Express always has sales so I always wait until they have a sale to shop most products. I got these three items during their 40% off sale so all items were under $100 total! I know I rant and rave about express jeans all the time, but i’m starting to love their shorts too – they just fit so perfectly, and I like that the inseam is longer on them – not to mention they are high waisted. They have so many cute styles to browse i’m definitely adding some to my wish list. 🙂

Some of you have been asking for an update on wedding planning.. so here goes! Last time I was on here we had just gone to the vendor and picked out all of that stuff along with the florist, the tastings, and the cake. Since then we have gotten our invitations done – mailing out in the next two weeks (I LOOOVEEE THEM). We went through Kelly Reif, and despite sending them back for like 329184035 revisions, she was so patient with us. We are doing our placecards through her, so i’m excited to see how they will turn out. She is in the Naperville area, so I definitely recommend her if you need someone! I have put little snippets of our invitations on my Instastories – they look so good. I actually wanted to go cheap at first on invitations and go through Shutterfly or Minted, but my dad said “That is the first impression people get of your wedding, and it reflects on us”, which is so true! Thank you mom and dad!!!:) **Kisses**

We also spent a lot of time figuring out our transportation situation. I’m not going to get too much into details, but long story short – we have a lot of logistics and need a few one way trips – not a 5 hour block of busses. So we had to end up booking 3 different companies to accommodate us – happy thoughts that the day turns out alright! Lol! We also ordered our party favors and got those squared away. I’m so happy we are 3 months out because wedding planning is literally like a second job! You don’t even know how much there is to do or how much work goes into it until you go through it! Looking forward to saying “I do” , celebrating, and then being on that sandy beach in Turks & Caicos! 88 days 🙂

I hope you guys have a good rest of your week – and as always – thanks for reading!!:)
