I have completely and totally jumped on the rose gold bandwagon. I can’t get enough of the beautiful warm gold tone, and I think it pairs so lovely with shades of pink and reds. I know this isn’t “Wedding Wednesday” but this is a little roundup of some summer Wedding Guest attire since we’re in the thick of wedding season, and as of Monday unofficially summer!
All three of these dresses can be dressed up, or down, and paired with a few of the rose gold accessories I’ve complied. I think the long off the shoulder dress would be stunning for an evening wedding. Sun kissed skin, rose gold details, and a little shoulder showing… hello!
Our Save the Dates are out!! Wahooo what a “this is really getting real” moment when guests started texting me! (I’ll be sharing our save the date suite next week!) And our house is now scattered with some of the pictures from our engagement shoot… which I haven’t shared the second look with you all yet, so today is Part 2 of our engagement shoot with Voyage Photography. I am a big fan of champagne so when I saw someone else pop a bottle, I couldn’t not do it! Speaking of, Wedding Paper Divas sent over a whole interactive board filled with great engagement poses and shoot ideas! Hope you have as much fun scrolling through as I did!
Summer seems to be being a bit delayed. I was starting to get concerned that I was going to have a Vitamin D deficiency until the sun finally decided to come out for the first time in weeks… literally 16 straight days of rain here last week in the DC metro area… and it’s back again! I should be posting about all the summer items I want to buy- tropical prints and bright colors- but instead I’m posting spring hues. I am realllly loving all the pastel and creamy colored items out there right now, and so many have fun prints, details and cuts! (Hello, scallops!) This dress, I mean come on. Tell me it wouldn’t be perfect for a bridal shower or a fun date day! And being a big fan of Deborah Lippmann, I can’t wait to try out her new gel polishes! This Peaches in Creamcolor can take you well into the sunnier summer days!
They are here, and I’m so so happy with our engagement pictures! J looks so darn handsome!!
It took some time sorting through all the picturesque places in the nation’s capital to take our engagement pictures. I dragged Joey to check out different places, scrolled through Pinterest, but nothing was “us.” Since our wedding is in the fall, I really wanted the contrast of a Spring engagement shoot. The monuments are obviously breathtaking, tidal basin was in bloom, and the long winter made some gardens not so pretty… none of them fit the bill. We wanted something sentimental, that fit our personalities, and a place that we could look back at and smile one day. We landed on Lincoln Park in Capitol Hill, DC right outside our first place together.
Strolling around Capitol Hill, posing in front of colorful row homes and walking hand in hand through Lincoln Park- a little awkward at times, and we definitely didn’t nail down the “serious” face, but it was the perfect spot to capture our relationship and engagement.
I hope you like a few of the collection as much as I do! I’ll be sharing a few from our second look on the next #WeddingWednesday! Rachel from Voyage Photographywas so wonderful, and really put us both at ease! If you’re in the DC area, definitely check her out!
I have been searching for a cute, comfortable pair of flats that I can easily wear with a variety of outfits. Like many of you, I love Gal Meets Glam’s blog and when she posted the scalloped Nude Ballet Flats I was in love. That is what I was looking for- girly, yet very practical. One problem though… for someone who wears flats only very occasionally, I couldn’t justify the price tag that came with the Scalloped Chloe Flats. So my search for my save vs. splurge scalloped flats began, and it didn’t take long. I found a super similar pair for a fraction of the price & switching out my heels for flats today felt like heaven! I love the nude color & the scalloped edge isn’t overly childish or blister-making! Maybe one day I will be willing to justify that price tag for the splurge, but for now… these will do the trick!
