Wedding Weekend Outfits

This past weekend Mark and I went to his sister’s wedding and man do I love weddings. I love getting dressed up, I love dancing, I love food, and I’m kind of a sap when it comes to romantic stuff. I have a hard time not tearing up during first dances and such. Because I have a deep love of outfit planning, I couldn’t miss the chance to put together a little collage of potential outfits (and by potential I mean pretty much what I wore for the weekend).

neonmuseumkatyThis last photo was taken by my friend Katy! Thank you lady! I went to The Neon Museum with her and her husband and took a ton of photos in the hot hot hot sun. I thought coming from Texas would make me more prepared for the heat, but man oh man standing outside for an hour mid morning never felt toastier.

The signs are so big in person – there were a few that I couldn’t get good photos of because they wouldn’t fit in one shot. I love neon things (my room in high school was full of little neon signs, light-up globes, lava lamps… very classy) so it was really fun to see all of the old styles and the way they’ve evolved as Vegas has grown. I recommend taking the tour if you’re gonna be in Vegas! They also offer night tours, but they fill up faster.

The only bad part of vacation is that eventually it’s over and now it’s back to the grind, BUT luckily for me the grind ain’t so bad.

Vegas 2014: Virtual Packing

Vegas 2014

I am going on a much-needed vacation to Vegas with my mister and a few of our friends this Labor Day, and even though it’s a super short trip, I still get excited thinking about what I’m going to pack. When it’s a trip this short, I really have to boil down what I’ll actually wear.

These are all from Polyvore so some of them are just CLOSE to the actual items I own. Obviously I’m a huge fan of color. Obviously. Seriously though, I love packing for planning way more than actual packing. It’ll take my mind off of worrying about flying on a plane for the first time in quite awhile. Big worry wart here.

I’ll try to take cool artsy photos, maybe even of the outfits I’m planning to wear. We shall see. I hope you all have a great long weekend (if you have one)!

Bunny Foo Foo: Little Purses for Little Things

ASOS Quilt Cross Body Bag With Rabbit Ears

My main purse (seen here) can sometimes feel like a bottomless pit of stuff. At any time I have at least (at least!) five lipsticks, a smaller bag with a nail file, hand cream, floss, etc., my wallet, a facial mist, my keys – it’s just ridiculous but really I use it all enough to justify keeping it. Then there are days where I know all I’ll need is the bare essentials, and this bunny bag is an even better reason to have more days like that. I like the idea of really boiling down what you want and just heading out.

On a day I carry this little beaut, I’ll bring my phone, id and debit card (not pictured), mirror compact, lip balm, sunglasses and some aspirin (in the little flower case). I leave room for car keys and maybe one extra, like blotting linens or a facial mist if it’s hot, but that’s it! Having other bits is nice if you can take them, but more and more I’ve been tossing the basics in here and going about my business. It’s a nice change!

Dallas Arboretum Date

Blouse & Heart Sunglasses – Forever 21 // Black A-Line Midi Skirt – Chicwish // Clogs – Lotta From Stockholm

Mark and I had a fun date day at the Dallas Arboretum this past Saturday! It feels like we’ve been busy lately so it was nice to take a day and look at all the gardens. Plus we ate tacos after and tacos are like my family. I love them.

I thought I looked super cute, but truth be told, it was humid as all get out in the mid 90’s, so I was sweating my face off from the moment we got out of the car. This is the first time I’ve worn this skirt out, and even though I love how it puffs and swishes, it’s polyester so I’ll make a note to wear it to indoor events in the future (or just on cooler days, which will be in short supply now that summer’s almost in full swing). There were kids playing in some of the fountains and I was so jealous you wouldn’t believe.

I took tons of photos of the flowers, but Mark was nice enough to snap a few shots since I haven’t done an outfit post in what feels like forever. Our new apartment (I say new like we haven’t been here almost a year) has really bad lighting and no open spaces good for taking photos, so that’s why the posts have slowed down this past year. Sorry! I’ve got a bunch lined up so it won’t be so sparse this next month!
