I can’t believe my bridal shower has already come and gone! Last weekend, my mom and aunts threw me a traditional wedding shower with all my female relatives and friends at my aunt’s church. It was such a beautiful event and I feel so thankful for having such wonderful women by my side at this exciting time in my life. I think everyone had a great time, and I got tons of amazing gifts – I feel so spoiled! George and I have really loved getting so many pretty things for our home as a couple – our stuff is really starting to feel like “ours” instead of his and hers.
I spent a lot of time trying to find a perfect white dress for my bridal shower. I tried on tons of dresses, but I think white is just a really hard color for me to pull off. I knew I wanted a really special dress, but most of the white dress options I saw were either 1) really plain/boring or 2) meant to be worn as a reception dress (way too fancy for a shower). It got down to the week of my bridal shower and I still had nothing to wear, so I ordered three Asos dresses (with free two-day shipping!) and they were delivered around 8pm the night before the shower. YIKES! I am so fortunate that this dress fit all of my criteria – it fit, wasn’t boring, and wasn’t see-through. Best of all – I completely adored it and will remember this dress for years as one of my all-time favorite pieces!

Sooo…I’m back to blogging! I never took an official “break” from it, it just sort of happened. A major life change happened since the last time I blogged – I moved in with George! Moving ended up taking much more time and energy than I imagined. Anything that didn’t involve moving got put on the back burner. The process of purging, packing, cleaning, moving, unpacking and organizing has consumed my life for weeks! I am still working on unpacking all of my things, but I’m starting to feel a little more settled now. I definitely would not recommend moving right before your wedding!
As much of a pain that moving can be – I am so happy to finally be living with George. I know that most people these days live with their husband/wife long before the wedding, so it’s not really a big deal, but it feels like a huge step to me! I loved living by myself and being on my own for so long – but I love waking up every morning next to GB (and cat) even more. I’m sure there will come a day when we get sick of each other, but for now we are both stupid happy. It’s seriously the best.

Let’s get down to business: I love Target shift dresses! They are my jam. Shift dresses aren’t normally cute on my figure, but when I belt them, they are perfect! This floral dress is essentially the new and improved version of my striped Target dress from last year (I say improved because this one is long enough to wear to work!). I honestly wear the crap out of both of them. I think one of the main reasons why these dresses are so awesome is because of the crepe fabric. It’s so lightweight, wrinkle-free and just easy to wear all day!
Have I convinced you to go try one on yet? Coolio.

You guys! I am totally changing the landscape of fashion with this outfit!
I know, a t-shirt and jeans is as basic as you can get. Sometimes a girl just needs to be comfortable.
That’s all I have for today.
