The Swing Dress…

Hey guys! So I am completely obsessed with this dress and I wanted to share how I wore it on Christmas Day! I love how simple and easy these swing dresses are no matter what time of year it is! I have a few for the summer and knew that this would be perfect for fall and winter!  It was unusually warm this Christmas so I paired the dress with these really festive Schutz heels and really loved the look!

Zara Obsessed…

Ok guys so the obsession is real and I am having trouble controlling myself! I seriously am in love with these dresses from Zara for summertime! They are super comfy and perfect to throw on when it is super hot out! I know I already showed an identical look to this but this is what I am actually wearing and want to share with you all!  I also love a hat no matter what the season and this one is really great, perfect to wear with hair thats just not looking its best or for at the pool or beach when you need a little extra shade!

Wedding Season…

Summer this year has been the season for weddings for our friends and family!  The last two weekends my husband and I have had two weddings to attend in two different states! I always love attending weddings, it is so fun to see the venue, decor, and see what everyone is wearing!  I love a good excuse to dress up, especially since I stay home with my daughter I don’t really have a good reason to wear my heels and do my makeup every single day.

The first was a wedding in Maryland and my husband was a groomsman for one of his college friends.  The wedding was beautiful and the venue was on a golf course which had beautiful views of a lake with a fountain right in the middle! The guys all wore their uniforms and they looked great!

The second wedding we attended was in Philadelphia in a beautiful Cathedral right in the heart of downtown! We had such a great time and it was so great to see some of Erics old friends and neighbors!

I think it is so fun to pick dresses and spend the extra time to do your hair and makeup when you are a guest for a wedding, especially when you have a babysitter! The brides and grooms are spending so much time and money to put on such a huge event in their lives and I think that it is only appropriate to put some effort in and look nice when you go to someones wedding.  It always boggles my mind when I see people who don’t really dress up!  You don’t have to spend a lot of money either so many different stores have options that you can dress up or wear the same dress multiple times but switch up the jewelry.  If you have a lot of weddings to go to it can also be a daunting task to find something different for each event.  If I don’t have something to wear I always ask one of my sisters or a friend if they have something that I can borrow for the evening.  That’s what I did for the first wedding, I wore a dress that my sister had and only wore once to a different event.  I dressed it up with a necklace and a pair of my favorite shoes and I was good to go.  The second outfit was a new dress, but it is a classic black dress with a unique neckline that I will be able to wear over and over again, all i will have to do is switch up my hair and jewelry and it will give a completely different look to the outfit.  My advice would be to invest in great shoes and a couple of basic pieces that will match with many different outfits and you will save yourself money in the long run.  Checking places like Target and TJMaxx is a great way to find trendier pieces without paying the expensive department store prices and you wont feel bad only getting a couple uses out of the item!

Congrats to the happy couples we had such a great time!
