George and I had a lovely engagement party over the weekend. My friend Silky planned the whole thing from Malaysia, which is why we waited for her to come home to have the party. It was absolutely worth the wait! George and I are so blessed to have the best friends in the world. Several of my girlfriends pitched in to bring food, cupcakes, and what seemed like a zillion bottles of champagne. We kept things small, with about 20 or so of our closest friends, and everyone had a great time! I can’t wait for George and I to move in together so we can have our friends over more often.
The following day we took our engagement pictures, which I am anxiously waiting to see! I plan to post my favorites on here as soon as I get a chance, so stay tuned!
Dress: Macy’s / Heels: Enzo Angiolini
Sometimes a girl just needs to be comfortable. I went to a lovely baby shower on Sunday morning in a dress and heels, but when I got home several hours later I just wanted to put on something casual. Typically I wouldn’t bother with changing, but I needed to clean my apartment and a cocktail dress just felt silly.
I do love comfort and basic pieces, but I also have an aversion to feeling like I look plain. I can never really wear just a t-shirt and jeans without feeling sloppy (exceptions: road trips, sick days). These are just my personal neuroses and not anything that I project onto anyone else. It’s simply a weird thing that I feel in my feelers. The point is, I tend to turn to standout pieces that can instantly make any outfit look more put together or unique (see: these floral oxfords). Whether it’s a headband, statement necklace, colorful shoe, or just a special detail – I always need a little something to keep things interesting. I know that I am not the most creative or daring fashion blogger out there, but that will never be who I am. I’m just keeping it real today.
T-Shirt: Loft / Sweater: Kohl’s / Jeans: Joe’s Jeans / Shoes: Rachel Roy / Bag: Tory Burch / Necklace: Kris Nations
Yep, it’s late October and I’m wearing sandals. This is how we do.
There’s nothing in this outfit that you guys haven’t seen before, but I am always looking for ways to remix! I tend to wear this headband a lot when I am due for a hair touch-up (hello, roots!), so I wanted to find something to pair it with that I hadn’t tried before. I really like the way this outfit turned out with the floral and stripe prints together – it’s a subtle print mix, which is just what I like. Speaking of subtle things – the hint of retro in this outfit makes this one of my favorite looks I’ve ever posted. I love vintage style, but I rarely wear vintage – instead I gravitate towards modern pieces/looks that have just a nod to the past. Subtlety is my jam.
