Pop of Lime

Sweater: Urban Outfitters (on sale!), Tank: Topshop, Jeans: Joe's, Sandals: Dolce Vita (old. similar here), Necklace: Kendra Scott
Happy Wednesday lovelies! Hope your weeks are going well so far. I'm still sort of getting caught up from being off on Friday and Monday but it was totally worth it to have time with family! Since I was on the road Monday I didn't get to tell y'all about our engagement photo session. We had the session on Thursday evening before I went out of town. It was SUCH a blast! We had absolutely perfect weather which is what I was stressing about and our photographer was the sweetest. Once I get the photos back I'll definitely be sharing some along with a few tips on "What to Wear for Engagement Photos!"

This sweater from Urban is SO adorable and perfect to throw over any outfit this time of year. Call me boring, but the only thing I wasn't a fan of was the bright lime stitching on the side. When I saw it on the site I thought I would love it but in-person it sort of bothered me. I ended up taking the lime stitching out and just leaving the neutral cream-colored stitching--now I'm obsessed and have been wearing it a ton! I left the lime stitching in there for the photos because it is super fun and makes the sweater unique but I'm just a neutrals kinda gal when it comes to my sweaters #basic!

70's Vibes

Dress: Free People (on sale!), Shoes: Sam Edelman, Choker: J. Crew (sold out, LOVE this one), Sunnies: Karen Walker
Happy Monday loves! Sorry in advance for the brevity of this post--we're on the road back from NY so I'm trying to do everything from my phone which is proving sort of difficult. Linking up with Style Elixir for today's post! We had a blast at my cousin's bridal shower and it was SO nice to spend time with my family. I don't know if I've mentioned this before but almost my entire family lives in upstate NY so we don't get to see them too often! Her wedding is in July and I absolutely cannot wait.
This is the dress that I wore to the bridal shower and I am just in love! I had my eye on it for a while then when it went on sale on Shopbop's site I knew I had to have it. It was incredibly windy when we were taking these pictures so I feel like it makes the dress look a little more "puffy" than it actually is in person. It's REALLY flattering and it's the perfect length. I love the 70's feel especially with those big flared sleeves!

Boho Navy Top

Top: LuLu's (sold out, similar here, here, and how adorable is this?!), Jeans: Articles of Society, Wedges: Michael Kors (from last season, almost identical here), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Happy Hump Day loves! Today is sort of like my Friday because tomorrow I'm only working a half day before heading off to our engagement photo session (I will be doing a post all about what to wear for engagement photos soon), then Friday morning bright and early I'm leaving with my parents for my cousin's bridal shower in NY. I will probably be skipping my Friday post just because we will be on the road almost all day but I'll be back to my regular schedule on Monday!

I was SO surprised to see that this top sold out so quickly. I just received it last week and it's no longer on the website! I love LuLu's but their stuff can sell out pretty fast--the nice thing is if the item is still on the site you can usually request that they email you when it's back in stock and they do restock pretty often. I linked to a couple tops that are similar and this one is almost identical but in a GORGEOUS poppy color! It's definitely next on my wish list. Also, I got a TON of use out of these wedges when I purchased them last summer. I can't find this style online anymore but again, linked to a pair super adorable and similar. I LOVE a good pair of wedges because they're so versatile and usually pretty comfortable!

Since I won't be doing my post on Friday I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week and a super relaxing weekend!

Shorts Season

Shorts: Paige Denim, Tee: Halogen, Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace: Panacea (similar here), Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Happy Monday loves! Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston and Style Elixir for today's post! Our weekend was definitely not the most relaxing. We spent all day Saturday looking at houses--we found one that we loved so we will see what happens with that. I've learned from this whole experience not to put all our eggs in one basket or to get my hopes up so I'm just praying that something will work out the way it's supposed to! Sunday we just ran errands and did quite a few outfit shoots for the blog since I'll be out of town this upcoming weekend for my cousin's bridal shower in NY.

I think I'm jumping the gun on the title of this post a bit because it was SO cold and windy while we were shootings these pictures. I'm sure it is shorts season for some of you lucky gals! I found these Paige Denim shorts at Nordstrom Rack and I'm absolutely in love. They fit so well and aren't too too short. They're SUPER comfortable as are all Paige Denim jeans! Also, how cute is this tee? I love that it's super simple but has the little wrap detail which gives it a little something extra. I feel like this outfit will be pretty much be my summer uniform!

Tropical Travel Essentials

Delsey Luggage, Essie Polish in "Status Symbol." Ray-Ban Sunnies, SUNDRESS Cover-Up, Kate Spade Passport Holder, Panama Hat, Eliza Gran Tote, Tory Burch Cosmetic Case
Happy Friday darlings! Hope your week was wonderful and not as dreary as ours here in VA. This week flew by actually which is always exciting. Maybe just because it was so darn busy! This afternoon I'm volunteering with a couple folks from work at a food shelter which I'm really looking forward to then tomorrow will probably be pretty dedicated to the continued search for a townhouse. Never gets old!

Because the weather has been so horrible here, I am just craving a tropical vacation! We have the trip to Santa Barbara planned in late July for a friend's wedding but aside from that no major vacations are on the books. We are beginning to look at destinations for the honeymoon so if you guys have any suggestions I would love to hear! There are so many options I don't even know where to start. We're primarily looking in the Caribbean or Mexico. I definitely want to invest in this Delsey suitcase for my trips this summer and for the honeymoon. I've heard such great things and it's SO adorable! Also, how cute is this pompom swimsuit cover-up? They have so many different colors and it's just the sweetest!

[PS-I FINALLY updated my "Favorites" page so if you want to see what I'm currently loving it's all under the "Favorites" tab at the top!]

Do y'all have any fun weekend plans?!

Kimchi Summer Dress

Dress: Kimchi, Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff, Belt: J. Crew (old, similar here), Hat: Old (obsessed with this one)
Happy Wednesday lovebugs! Hope your week is going well so far. The nonstop rain here in VA has me feeling so exhausted but there's so much going on this week so I need to buck up! I think I mentioned before that I was studying for the PMP but I decided to put that off for a while and instead focus on studying for the GRE. I have been waiting on looking into grad school until Steven was done with his Ph.D program so now that we're finally getting a little closer to that, it's time to start looking! This week I have been doing some major research--I go back and forth all the time about what I want to get my Master's in. It's such a big decision and time commitment!

Anyway---this dress is just a dream! I hadn't shopped at Urban Outfitters in a while but when I went on their site I was blown away with how much I LOVED everything. They have such an amazing collection right now--especially cute boho pieces like this dress! I love the off-the-shoulder detail and the flirty slits in the skirt. It's so lightweight and comfortable--perfect for when the weather gets a little warmer. Also, these Rebecca Minkoff sandals are SO freakin' comfortable. I honestly don't think I've ever owned a pair of sandals that are this comfortable--they don't slide around and the "sole" (I think that's what you would call it?) is really soft. It almost feels like you're wearing slippers! Needless to say, I'm very happy with that purchase.

Perfect Peasant Blouse

Blouse: Wayf, Jeans: Paige Denim, Bag: Tory Burch, Shoes: Vince Camuto (old, similar here), Sunglasses: Karen Walker
Happy Monday loves! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and hope your Mother's Day was full of fun and relaxation. Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston and Style Elixir for today's post! Saturday morning we just got a ton done around our place and Saturday night, my cousin and uncle from Boston unexpectedly stopped through the area so we went over to my parents to catch up with them over wine and dinner! Sunday was just full of errands and we saw a townhouse we really like. FINGERS CROSSED!

This Wayf blouse is so adorable and goes with almost any outfit. It would look so cute paired with shorts and sandals or even with a pair of cute flares! It's so lightweight and I love the cream color. I think I would classify a good peasant blouse in the "basics" or wardrobe "essentials" category because it really is so versatile!
