Engagement Reflections

I've been saying it for weeks, but wow! Time has truly flown by since August 28th, 2016 when Stephen and I got engaged. I remember when we were trying to set a date... August 5th was not our ideal date because it was almost a year away and it was in the heart of the summer. Now, almost a year later, I can truly say the time has flown by. Even though it may be 9 million degrees and it will probably storm, August 5th rolls off the tongue as the perfect wedding date.

Wedding Weekend Packing with Dove

top  / shorts

How in the world is wedding week here?! This time next week, Stephen and I will officially be Mr. & Mrs., which I am so excited for. I've started packing up things here and there to take for the weekend since we'll be just far enough out of town that it's inconvenient to come back home. 

My packing list feels like a million items long, but here are a few of my necessities:
  • Rehearsal dinner dress and accessories
  • Wedding dress (of course)
  • Sophie - you can see she packs herself
  • Rings
  • Lounge clothes for getting ready
  • Makeup
  • Brush
  • Bobby pins
  • Stephen's wedding band
  • Hairspray
  • Toiletry bag
  • Shoes
  • Earrings
  • Gifts
  • Dove Invisible Dry Spray
I started using the Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant a few weeks ago and it really has made a difference. I'm on the go a lot these days, so it's important to find a product that I can rely on. It'll be especially important on the wedding day, and one thing I really like about this product is that it's truly an invisible spray. It leaves no white marks on 100+ colors of clothing, so I know this Dove spray will take me from rehearsal dinner to wedding day to honeymoon with no worries. 

According to the Dove survey, 65 percent of women wish they had more time in the morning and most say their routine can be a race to get out the door. Having a deodorant that not only lasts but is convenient in a spray (and doesn't leave those pesky white marks) means that getting out the door is a little bit easier. Our wedding weekend will be busy enough as is without me having to worry about my deodorant - but thanks to Dove's Invisibile Dry Spray, I'm all set!

Lately + Confessions

Happy Friday! It's hard to believe that this time next week, we'll be kicking off wedding weekend with my bridesmaid luncheon and then the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner! The last few months have flown by so quickly,  so I'm excited to share a coffee date + a few confessions.

Summer Wedding Guest

dress c/o Amanda Uprichard / sunglasses / similar sandals

It's safe to say this has been the year of weddings! Though I've been a bridesmaid in many of the weddings I've gone to so far (and another this fall), I have had a few that I needed that perfect dress to wear. This Amanda Uprichard maxi is perfect for a summer wedding - the color and fit make it a fun option that stands out.

Wedding Wednesday: The Countdown Is On

This Saturday marks two weeks until the wedding - two weeks! I can't even believe how fast the last year has flown by. I am begging time to speed up and slow down all at once! I can't wait to get married to Stephen, but at the same time, the to-do list seems huge and the closer we get to the wedding also means the closer we get to the opening of ZIA
