Hey y’all! I am excited to share this adorable ruffle dress with you today (only $53) because I definitely needed something to brighten up this Monday. I am wearing a size 4 and it is in stock in all sizes! I had a nice tall marg with dinner last night (with a shot of Grand Marnier, of course) and am feelin’ it today! Jeremy and I spent the day shopping for some last minute accessories for the wedding. I used my birthday 50% off at Kendra Scott (yay) and we settled on a pair of shoes for him. After dinner, Jeremy and I watched Arrival and if you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest it. Especially for my fellow Communications majors.

Last quick thing – I have some BIG news for y’all first thing tomorrow morning that you won’t want to miss. Sorry to be so elusive today, but I promise you’ll appreciate it in the morning 🙂

Off the Shoulder Dress: BuddyLove c/o (wearing size small) / Cactus Print Dress: BuddyLove c/o (wearing size small) / Sandals: Sam Edelman (cheaper version here) / Straw Clutch: Francesca’s (only $22!) / Pom Pom Clutch: Steve Madden / Earrings: BaubleBar / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Bracelets: The Styled Collection, Kate Spade, BaubleBar


TGIF! Another week has come and passed and I haven’t done a dang thing for the wedding. I did, however, take a two-hour nap yesterday from the anxiety of it all so there’s that! (lol) I have always been a proponent of waiting to live together until you’re married, but as the reality of all that entails fast approaches, I almost wish we already lived together! Far less logistics to work out.

I don’t want y’all to think I’m a big Debbie Downer about the wedding-planning process, but I also don’t want to portray that everything is easy and without hiccups; especially because everything always looks so glamorous on social media. I am beyond excited about being married to Jeremy, it’s the wedding that gives me the jitters. On top of that, I have a few trips I am taking in the weeks leading up to it, so ya, everything is a bit overwhelming and I guess it caught up to me yesterday.

I am excited, though, to share these two adorable dresses from the new boutique BuddyLove. It’s tough to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing cactus print, amiright?! I honestly don’t know which one I love more! That sentiment can be expressed for the entire line of BuddyLove clothes, as well. Y’all have to check them out 🙂

Charleston Bachelorette Party

SHOP THE POST:


POST DETAILS:

Sweatshirt Decals: The Couture Kitten / Koozies: Dawlens c/o / Wine Glasses: Dawlens c/o / Gift Tags: Southern Hospitality Company c/o / Luggage Tags: Southern Hospitality Company c/o / Water Bottles: Dawlens c/o / Donut Inflatables: Etsy / Tassel Garland: Etsy / Skirt: Target


I can’t believe my bachelorette party has come and past so quickly. So while I avoid finalizing the details of my wedding, I wanted to relive the weekend and share all the details with y’all. We spent Thursday through Sunday in Charleston and we (accidentally) selected one of the city’s busiest weekends, The Cooper River Bridge Run. So the city had even more than it’s ordinary hustle and bustle. Regardless, we were able to see and do many things on my wish list so I wanted to take y’all through it in case you’re considering having your bach bash here. My verdict? Do it!
