So if you read my blog you know I’ve been working on an office makeover (taking longer than expected) and eventually we will be making over our 2nd bedroom into a large closet. With any type makeover comes the need to fill the walls with beautiful art whether its photography, prints or paintings. One of the first places I always look to for affordable art (among countless other things) is Etsy. I’ve shared my love for Etsy before here and here.
Recently I came upon Rachillustrates and I’m in LOVE. Her works are simple, fresh, modern and bit sexy. I can already picture the “XO” print for the closet or even our bedroom. I’m also really loving her quotes and even the fashion prints, another great option for my closet.
I don’t know about you but I am loving the bomber jacket trend right now. I think what I love most is how versatile a bomber jacket is and it’s also a timeless piece, never really goes out of style. You can dress them up, dress them down, wear for date night or out running errands. It’s like the “new” blazer, in my opinion at least. And they come in all various colors and patterns. I’ve been seeing a lot of classic looking ones (varsity style) and floral prints. I’m in LOVE with the lace Free People one shown below and the floral GAP one (on sale!).
Ever have one of those Mondays? I seem to weekly, especially in the winter. I’m in such a clothing rut too. Finding less and less ways to wear winter clothes which makes Mondays even harder and not wanting to buy … Continue reading →

I am starting a new feature here today on the blog called High or Low where I will feature similar products at varying price points. I thought it would be nice to add something new to the mix and I always love seeing these type of posts on other blogs. It really makes you question would you spend more or less on that particular item. Maybe you’re like me and tend to spend more on shoes and handbags but on costume jewelry or trendy pieces you like to find them for less. Starting simple today with these Loren Hope bow earrings on the high end or Buckle’s version for a lot less.

I was doing soo good staying on track and doing Wedding Wednesday actually on Wednesday but alas, I missed it again. So Wedding Thursday it is!
We are getting close to the end (next week will be my last post). Next week’s post may just be my favorite though. It will include all the “details” aka the things that drove me crazy and our exit of the night.
This week though is the reception & cake cutting.
Don’t judge, but I decided to have fun with our bridal party entrance. They wanted to kill me but in the end I think they enjoyed it! Girls came in cheering and shaking pom-poms, formed two lines, 2 girls on each side and guys ran through. All the guys play or have played some sport so when they were introduced it went something like…”John Smith starting quarterback”. My brother played golf so he came in with his pants tucked into his socks revealing argyle socks and another groomsman came in with a football and pretended to have it signed. Cheesy, I know but it was a lot of fun.
We came in normally and went right into our first dance. Our first dance song is called Never Stop (wedding version) by Safetysuit. I’m so in love with our song!!
Then onto cake cutting & father/daughter dance.
I had to do collage for the cake cutting. He decided to be funny and smash the cake in my face and I think the series of photos is pretty cute. But I got him back
Lastly, candids from the night. I love all of our friends and family. If they weren’t in the photo-booth, they were on the dance floor with me. I don’t think I got off the dance floor for more than 10 minutes. So much fun!! I wish I could re-live it all over again. Luckily, that’s what I have these pictures for. And yes I had two pregnant bridesmaids, but they were great!
Hope you guys are enjoying my wedding posts. See you next week (on Wednesday!)
