Wedding Planning: advice from YOU!

January 7, 2019

Last week I asked for any and all advice when it comes to wedding planning. If you’ve planned a wedding before or even if you are currently in the planning process, what was a must-do or a no-go?

I received so many great pieces of advice and wanted to compile them here on our new blog series, Down the Aisle. If you’re in the same boat as myself and want to take in any & allll advice from brides who have already planned and achieved their dream wedding this post is for you!

Thank you again to everyone who participated in this post! It’s been so helpful to hear all of your advice and suggestions.

Shop with us: ASOS

January 4, 2019

We identify ourselves as shoppers on a mission for the best deal/steal out there. We don’t like to pay full price, but we also like quality pieces and items we can re-wear and style multiple different ways. So in sharing this Asos dress sale with you I wanted to also let you into our thinking when shopping a sale like this, or really any sale for that matter!

I like to think of the future when I’m shopping a sale such as this one. What I mean by that is future seasons and events. Not just thinking what can I wear right this minute in this specific climate, but seasons to come.

So instead of passing up on an awesome dress just because I won’t be able to wear it until April, I buy it now and save it for that time. It is seriously one of our favorite ways to save money shopping! Because honestly a springtime dress that you buy on sale now is going to be probably identical to springtime dress you’ll see in a month or two at your favorite retailer!

So as you scan our sale picks for this sale in particular (or any sale you’re shopping really) think of future events: upcoming weddings, Easter, birthdays, spring and summer seasons, upcoming vacations etc.

Just because you can’t wear the piece now, doesn’t mean in a few weeks or months you won’t be amped to wear it! And you’ll be even happier wearing it them because you got it for a serious steal.

Here are our favorite picks from the sale {EVERYTHING is under $20!!}

PINSPO // Hailey Baldwin

November 7, 2018

With Hailey Baldwin (Beiber??) being in the public eye as of late, we have really loved her style. She definitely has a unique take on everyday casual pieces, but also can dress up and be so stunning! We especially love her fall/winter style and found two looks of hers we couldn’t wait to recreate.

These looks feature pieces you probably already have in your closet and would be really easy to put together! We love Hailey’s vibe because she always looks comfortable, but put together. We linked similar pieces for each outfit below.

Thanksgiving Style {casual vs. dressy}

November 4, 2018

With Halloween 2018 gone with a flash we are ready for our November holiday-Thanksgiving! Now I know half of us are busting out our Christmas decor and have Michael Bublé on repeat, but we cannot forget about the magic that is Thanksgiving. As a teacher I’m all about Thanksgiving because we get a week off of school (insert praise hands emoji) and I actually really enjoy finding cute outfits for the occasion.

We are normally a casual bunch when it comes to the Thanksgiving holiday, but it can be really fun to dress up too! Because this is an eating holiday (I mean aren’t they all?) when you dress up you still want to make sure you are comfy and not wearing something that you’ll regret two plates in.

We’re sharing a dressy and a casual ensemble for your Thanksgiving holiday, both of which are SUPER comfortable!
