What I’m Loving Wednesday: Rehearsal Dinner Mad Men Frocks

Why, hello Wednesday. You are looking pretty good today. Have you lost weight? New hair cut? Not sure what you’ve done but you are looking FINNNEE. I have ONE MORE DAY until the weekend and I’m barely holding on. So Wednesday, be kind to me okay?

Let’s talk for a minute about rehearsal dinner attire. I may be old-fashioned, but I believe a rehearsal dinner is a very special event. I don’t care if you host it at the Ritz Carlton or a trailer park, the event itself is a very big deal. It’s the night before your wedding, for petes sake! It’s the night before the madness, the last night you are an I instead of a we, the last night (many of us) are known as the name we’ve grown up with. Plus, it’s time you get to really spent with your bridal party uninterrupted with the craze of the actual wedding day. You get to talk to some of your guests and laugh with your husband. Honestly, I loved every second of our rehearsal dinner for that very reason. However, through the blog world, I’ve learned that some people just don’t care about rehearsals or dinners. They serve the purpose of purely being time to practice and that’s it. They don’t host a dinner or dress up, they just run through the motions. Although I don’t agree with this, to each their own. All I know is that it was a very special event TO ME and I wanted to frame the event accordingly, attire wise. I even remember talking on the phone with my mom a few days before, saying “please tell everyone not to wear jeans, to dress nicely.” and my mom going “well, duh! It’s a rehearsal dinner, who would wear jeans?” Maybe it’s just my family and how I presented the rehearsal dinner’s formality, but almost everyone showed up looking dapper. 

My ladies looking gorgeous!

Tuesday Shoesday: Boots I NEED

I really couldn’t think of a better title for these AMAZING boots I found this morning via Tory Burch’s Facebook page. Seriously, once you see them, you are going to be like “yep, I NEED those boots!” They are a bit steep at $495, but are TOTALLY worth the splurge.

I would pair these incredible riding boots with a pair of skinny jeans, a long cardi over a ruffled blouse and an amazing chunky necklace. Or, just this amazing outfit below via My Urban Fairytale.

Who else is READY for fall?!

Thursday Purseday: Less is More

My theme for today is simplicity. Although I’m known to love big statement pieces and lots of ruffles, some days, I just like the plain Jane look. One color, no embellishment or overly loud designs. So let me share with you a piece that is versatile, stylish and timeless, because simple elegance never goes out of style 🙂 These lovely Tory Burch clutches are the epitome of elegant and can go with any outfit, from your 9-5 shift dress to your glittery tank top! Oh, and at $195 dollars, they make a great present! This clutch comes in 3 different colors [my favorite is the pink] and can be found at Neiman Marcus.
