Mint Meets Nude

I had the pleasure of attending one of the most beautiful weddings this past weekend. We flew all the way to Michigan and celebrated Heather and Tyler's marriage. Heather was a picturesque bride; something you might find on the cover of The Knot, or on the latest Wedding Chicks' post. She was absolutely stunning, as were the details of the day. From the wooden hand-held fans during the ceremony, to the locally-prepared chocolate truffle favors; it was all so beautiful. 

As for me, I had fun dressing for the occasion! A few weeks back I snagged a minty F21 dress for nearly nada, and paired it with suede Ann Taylor heels. I wanted something that a) was comfy, and b) helped make my pasty self look somewhat tan. I kinda loved how the combo turned out. 

It was great to be around such loving people. I am excited to soon be a part of such a considerate, supportive, motivated, and adventurous bunch. 

Cheers to Love, and Cheers to Family!

Ok, I have been seriously contemplating chopping the mane. Honestly, I will probably wait until after the wedding, but right afterwards I wanna liberate myself from my long locks. There is something to be said about the effortless style and convenience that comes with shorter hair, and I want in! I am thinking: shoulder length, and plenty of long layers. If all goes well, I may perhaps ditch the granny bun, and actually style my hair every once in awhile. 

Have a fabulous, beginning of the week, Plummies! Xoxo

Morning Plummies! The big day is only about 4 months away. Ahhhhh!!! It's crunch time now. In an effort to get organized, I printed blank monthly calendars and posted them up on my office wall. After writing down all the wedding to-dos and important dates on the calendars, I realized that nearly every weekend leading up to September 14th is going to be dedicated to wedding stuff. This week my goal is to print all the invites and rehearsal dinner invites. I have found some beautiful free printables here

In terms of makeup,  I have decided to pull a Kate Middleton, and do it myself (with the help of my lovely friend, Vanessa). I went into Bloomingdales a few weeks ago and purchased a few Bobbi Brown products. Why haven't I used her line in the past!? It's quite effortless-looking! The look I am going for is: rosy pinks and corals, with dramatic lashes, and bold brows. I can't wait for you guys to see!
