Today marks exactly thirty days until I am thirty years old. I know this, because today is also Day 1 of my Whole 30 in preparation for my July 1st wedding. Approaching thirty really makes you stop and reflect a bit. I’ve learned so much not only over the past three decades, but even more so as I get further into adulthood. Stay tuned for a full post on what I’ve learned by being thirty, but today…

Plus, you’re getting to see our engagement photos, finally! I’ve been sooo excited to share these with you all. Outfit details are linked at the bottom of this post! We took our engagements rather late in our engagement compared to many couples for a…

How I’m Feeling <2 Months Before Our Wedding

click below to shop the look That’s right people, less than two months until our wedding day! Our date is 07/01/2017 and when I looked down at the calendar last week and saw 05/01 I sort of gasped. Where did the last few months go?! It seems that every year goes faster than the first and this one was certainly no exception. Realizing there are less than two months until the big day left me…

Wedding & Rehearsal Dinner Shoes

Happy #WeddingWednesday, friends! Today I’m talking shoes. Next to the dress, this is quite a big decision for a shoe-lover like myself. Although surprisingly, I was able to decide on my wedding shoes much more quickly than I have been with the shoes for my rehearsal dinner. Truthfully, I pretty much knew which wedding shoes I wanted. When I first saw them, I kept them in mind and just bought them. I prefer an open…

Friday Favorites: Marble

Since we registered, I can’t get enough of marble. We added a lot of fun marble items to our registry for our kitchen, but it’s been creeping into my life everyywhere. You may recall this marble workout outfit I posted a few months ago, which is hands down one of my favorites. I love how clean marble looks and that it is a subtle, classic print. A few weeks ago I looked down at my…

Custom Cookbook AKA The Best Gift Ever

You guys know I LOVE to cook. Cooking brings me back to time with my family when I was younger with my cousins and I all crammed into our Grandmother’s kitchen asking what we could help with and learning all we could from her. It’s so nostalgic to me and in my family, it has always been a way to communicate love, help someone get over a bad day, or celebrate a great one. In…

Saying YES to the Dress

A few weeks ago I posted ten tips on what to do before you go wedding dress shopping. Today for #WeddingWednesday I am sharing about my experience that led to saying “YES!” to the dress aka the second biggest yes in this whole wedding planning process. You know, after saying yes to the proposal. Because our wedding is going to be small and intimate given that it’s in Italy, I didn’t want to bring a ton…

Ten Tips Before You Go Wedding Dress Shopping

I think wedding dress shopping has to be one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process. There aren’t a lot of wedding-type things that I’ve dreamt of forever, but THE dress is one. My ideas of what I want specifically may have changed over the years as my style has evolved, but generally I’ve had an idea in my head. What fashion-loving girl hasn’t?! I knew what I didn’t want as much…

Gifts for the Bride to Be

Happy Wedding Wednesday! This week, I’m chatting about gifts for the bride to be. Sure, their will be a registry and you can get something like a cheese board, a marble paper towel holder, or adorable copper measuring cups for her and her soon-to-be husband for their wedding. But, when the bride is one of your besties and you want to do something extra special for her, a little thoughtful gift can go a long…

Light It Up Blue

I want to continue to use my blog as a place to be personal and share things close to my heart. One thing I am very passionate about, is animal rescue, which I shared with you all earlier this month. Today, I am sharing about Autism and hoping to bring more awareness to this Disorder. I have teamed up with one of my blogger babes to encourage all of you to Light it Up Blue on…

What to Wear to a Bachelorette Party

Last week for Wedding Wednesday I talked about what to wear to a bridal shower for the bride-to-be and for guests. This week, I am talking about what to wear to a bachelorette party. My bachelorette is next weekend and I’ve been getting a lot of texts from my girlfriends asking me what to wear or with photos of possible outfits. Because more than one of them told me I should write about what to…
