Engaged

54fd69e8cce8b5751e4d428e3016fc00One of my best friend’s from college is engaged! I am so so thrilled for her and for her soon to be husband. We’ve been as close as sisters since freshman year of college and to see her take this next, amazing step in her life makes me so happy. As soon as her fiancé popped the question, we started to talk about details and plans and colors and dates –  I wanted to know everything!

Another best friend got married last October and it made me realize how much I love being a part of these special, unforgettable moments in my friend’s lives. It’s crazy that as soon as mid-twenties come along, there are SO many people taking this next step. Celebrating love seems to be on the calendar every single weekend this summer but I do not mind it one bit. My summer is now filled with weddings and engagement parties that I am very much looking forward to.

Fit, flare, floral dresses is what keeps coming to mind when I think of killer outfit to wear to these occasions. As I’m looking for some inspiration and ideas, this floral look is definitely top of mind. Which one do you like best? Do you have any weddings or engagement parties this summer?

Red Carpet Vibes

sienna-miller-met-gala-2015Every year, Anna Wintour, hosts a pretty big, wild, red carpet event known as the #MetGala. The theme of the night is always chosen by Miss Anna herself. Celebrities, designers, models, essentially the whose who of the fashion industry, interprets the theme into some serious, fancy, breathtaking gowns & garments.

As I was stalking the event last night on a few social media avenues, this years theme China: Through the Looking Glass, came alive on that very red carpet. The theme itself ended up being pretty controversial interesting to say the least but nonetheless everyone pulled out all the stops. Transparent dresses (looking at you Beyonce), ruby/saphire/emerald/bronze colors and creative head dresses strutted down the aisle. Right at my fingertips lay Gigi Hadid, Sienna Miller and Rihanna all looking as gorgeous as ever.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites looks of the night. Thoughts? Any favorites? Any least favorites? Tell me.. tell me what you think!rihanna-met-gala-2015 kendall-jenner-met-gala-2015-best-dressed lily-aldridge-met-gala-2015emily-ratajkowski-met-gala-2015*All images borrowed from vogue.com

Black Tie

Wedding season starts as soon as you hit your 20’s and it’s a ridiculously good time. Post college, save the dates & invitations start pouring through the mail. Before you know it, you’ve been invited to be a bridesmaid, a maid of honor, a best man, or a wedding guest. This past January, I had the privilege of being one of those wedding guests at a beautiful wedding in San Francisco. A very close friend of mine from college, invited me to fly out and celebrate her very special day with her close friends and family.

It was an amazing black tie wedding, filled with love, laughter and great company. The ceremony was held in a gorgeous Catholic church right in the heart of the city. The ceremony was followed by a wedding reception at a stunning country club overlooking the SF sunset right on the bay. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge was picturesque – the night could not have been more perfect.

This was my first black tie wedding and I wanted to wear something elegant, appropriate but fun too. When I think of black tie attire, my mind automatically goes to long dresses of sorts. Greyish, blacks, blues and reds are dress colors that first come to mind (never beige or white, obv). I have a few friends that are invited to black tie weddings this summer and they’ve expressed a bit of a challenge with finding the perfect dress at a reasonable price. Here are a few options under $200 that I loved. Happy FRI YAY!

Snowy Valentine’s Day

There is a special someone in my life so for Valentine’s Day we are going out to a nice, quiet, candle lit dinner. Even though we’ve been together for close to two years, I still love getting dressed up & putting in that extra little effort especially when a fun holiday like this comes around. I hope everyone is having a wonderful, lovable day in the snow! XO
