Tuesday Shoesday: Flats that Rock

Although there is nothing sexier than a pair of heels, my poor feet can’t stand walking in them all day. So when it’s time to give my little feet some rest, I slip on a comfy and sassy pair of flats. I love the look of flats with skinny jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts or really just anything. Take a peek at a few of my favorites!

Marvelous Monday: Glorious Gowns

To celebrate my wedding week [not the 'I'm getting married wedding week', the 'I'm going to cross off at least 25 things on my wedding to do list wedding week'], I’m featuring some lust worthy gowns that just make my heart flutter. I want to wear them all. That’s not frowned upon right? You’ve heard of a bride with 7 gowns? It’s my wedding, after all! Ps, I may or may not have tried some of these on. And let me tell you, they are just as delicious in real life as they are in print and online. All dresses found on Martha Stewart Weddings.

I think I might be in love with this gown.  J Crew

Happy Sunday!

There’s nothing I love more than a lazy Sunday. After a week of work and a bustling Friday and Saturday, a day of nothing more than pancakes and cuddling in bed and lounging watching bad TV is just what the doctor ordered. So I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday, whether it be by the pool, by the sea, at the market or cozy in home with the ones you love!

Fabulous Foodie Friday: Edible Favors

This could be due to the fact that I’m starving or just the plain fact that I love food, but today’s post is all about edible stuff.  And not just random stuff, edible party favors for all the lucky guests attending your wedding! There’s no better way to say thank you than to leave your guests with some yummy treats as they head home, back to the hotel or wherever the night takes them. A full guest is a happy one!

Gorgeous Cakes that are too Pretty to Eat!

These cakes are too beautiful to even think about eating. I am drooling at how magnificently decorated and detailed they are. Just as my friend Angela from Swatchbook Weddings said a few days ago, cakes like these are pretty enough to wear!

Wedding Wednesday Wonders: Etsy Addiction Part Duex.

I love Etsy. I want to win the lottery so that I can buy every single item on the website. Their hand made wedding accessories, invites, decor, dresses, shoes, purses and favors are to die for. The vendors on there are MAD talented. My favorites as of lately all have a similar theme – hand made rosettes! I love the rosette appliqué look on clothes, purses, shoes, pillows, chairs…well, just about everything! So take a peek at my favorite rosette applied and rosette inspired products. I highly recommend hiding your wallet while you peruse or you may find yourself out rent money this month!

Also, keep your eyes peeled for an Etsy giveaway coming in the new few weeks, it’s going to be fantastic!

Tuesday Shoesday: It’s all about the detail!

As the saying goes, it’s all about the details! You can bring any outfit to life with the addition of a beautifully detailed shoe. And a bit of lace or a ruffled strap add such a flirty flair to any wedding gown!

Southern Vintage

It’s taken me a while, but I’ve created my FIRST inspiration board, all courtesy of Style Me Pretty’s very intuitive Style Circle.  Much like my upcoming nuptials, this board has Southern and vintage flairs, with DIY flavor and old-southern charm!

You’re invited to a tea party…

I’ve had a really long day, thanks to a project on Excel that sucked out my soul for at least eight hours. So to take my mind off the numbers and formulas I’ve been staring at all day, I did a bit of searching for something a bit more exciting – tea parties! No, I’m not talking about the parties I’d have with my stuffed animals and plastic tea set, I’m talking about the classy, beautifully decorated, adult tea parties that many brides have for their bridal showers! Take a peek at these delicious tea party spreads. Get prepared for a whole bunch of gorgeous-ness.

You can play with fancy florals and bright colors at a tea party bridal shower, so go bold! [Country Living]
