Back to School

Monday, August 29, 2016

I can't help but see all my friends posting pictures of their kids for "back to school" so it had me thinking, what would I wear if I were going back to school...certainly not what I wore back in the day that's for sure!  My style has definitely evolved since then, however, I do like the fact that some of the older styles have made their way back around.  In the 90's ripped jeans, chokers, and plaid were all the rage, think rocker grunge in Seattle.  I'm not about to go full on grunge because you guys know I'm super girly but I do like to dress down every now and then!  So today I'm sharing my Back to School outfit with you.

I was shopping at Las Americas Premium Outlets over the weekend with Rick, we both needed something for a tiki party we were going to, and of course I got distracted with all of the Fall clothes and displays.  Do you know how hard it is to find tiki inspired clothes in September?!  LOL  Luckily I was able to find something before being completely taken off course.  Rick and I split up and I wondered into Aeropostale, a store I hadn't been into since high school.  I saw some flannel tops I wanted to check out and was surprised by how inexpensive, yet comfortable and soft they were.  I also found these jeans for like $30.  Um, yes please!!  I love mixing highs and lows and today was no exception.  My top is from Kit and Ace, backpack is from Target and my watch is Original Grain.  I never go shopping looking for the most expensive thing that I can post and brag about.  I love finding a bargain when I can and also don't mind splurging!  Feeling comfortable and beautiful with yourself is way more important than what people think of or about you.  Something I take away from being in high school and hope girls know that today too!

What would you wear if you were going back to high school today?

Hello friends and happy Thursday!!  One day closer to the weekend, woo whoo!!
I don't know about you but I feel like this week is literally taking foreverrrr, which is crazy because I've been busy every single day!  How does that even happen?!  LOL
Tonight I have a cake tasting for our wedding and I cannot wait to sample some delicious treats and also talk about the vision I have for the wedding!!  I love how everything is coming together (we just sent out our Save The Dates yay!) and as much as I love the process I'm most excited to marry my best friend :)

This weekend is another busy one, however we decided it was time for a much needed date night, and since we've been really good about not going out and eating (we're currently on a meal prep plan, more on that later), we needed a cheat night!  So I told Rick let's get dressed up and go out!  Since I dress up all the time for work and events, when I get home or am relaxing I really just want to wear comfy clothes, but I don't think it's fair for Rick to see me get glam to go out and be super casual when I'm with him.  LOL  So I make the effort to get dressed up for him too, plus I know he loves and appreciates it!  I mean who's guy wouldn't!!  Make the effort girls!!

I recently got this adorable floral print dress from Chicwish and knew I needed to wear it out right away!  When I put it on right before dinner Rick's face was priceless "Ummm yes!" I believe was his reaction!  He's such a sweetheart!  It's the perfect girly outfit this time of year and especially paired with pink sandals, I mean you just can't go wrong! 

Anyhow, moral of the story.  Always dress up for your guy, trust me, he'll appreciate it more than you know!!

With my beautiful bridesmaids
Stacey, Priscilla, Andrea, Nikki, and Amber

The countdown continues, exactly 207 days until Rick and I say "I do" in front of our closest friends and family!!  It's getting real and quick!  LOL
But more than anything, I cannot wait to be married to my best friend.

We've got the big things scheduled; date (March 18, 2017) and location (Palm Springs), now it's time to move on to the rest of the fun stuff!!  So over the weekend my five bridesmaids and I went to David's Bridal to try on Bridesmaids dresses!  I asked the girls about a week in advance to go online to their website and choose their favorite styles so we had an idea of what everyone liked.  Vera Wang was at the top of the list :)  We selected our top 20 favorite styles, haha yes 20, there were just so many to choose from, and when I called to make an appointment I let the DB stylist know all the dresses they wanted to try on, and everything was pulled and ready for us when we got there!  That makes life so much easier than having six girls running around the store pulling dresses!

Our personal stylists for the day, Kristi, was so helpful, knowledgeable and patient! haha  Having six different women, personalities and styles she kept her cool and brought out every dress, size and color we asked for in addition to what we already had waiting for us!
Thank you for being so patient, Kristi!!  LOL

The reason I chose DB to look for dresses was because I knew they had a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes.  All my girls are different and I wanted each of them to feel comfortable and beautiful in their dresses so having such a variety was important to me, plus the prices are extremely reasonable, they even have dresses under $100.

As you've probably noticed by now my favorite color is pink.  I live for soft hues, pinks, blushes and neutral tones so it felt only right to go that route for our big day! :)
I don't want to give away all the details just yet, but also wanted to share with you some photos and possible contenders for the bridesmaids, so here's a fun little sneak peek of what you can expect to see on our wedding day!

If you're getting married or maybe going to be a bridesmaid, I highly suggest you check out DB's bridesmaids collection!  I was talking to the managers, Luis and Kori and they told me DB now has over 300 stores in the US, Canada, UK and Puerto Rico, I was shocked, I seriously had no idea they had so many stores, but I can totally see why and I bet there's one right near you!

Thank you so much to David's Bridal for taking such good care of me and my bridesmaids!  I'm happy to say we found the perfect bridesmaid's dresses for each one of my girls and I can't wait to show you what we ended up choosing!!  Stay tuned for more!! :)
