The Wanted List: Feminine Details

I seriously can't get enough of fall pieces - but it's also still 85 degrees out which makes putting on those sweaters a little silly. Normally at this time of year, I'm begging summer to stick around, but I think seeing all of our fun fall pieces at ZIA is making more ready for chillier weather than ever (I'll be retracting that statement when we have our first truly cold day, I'm sure).

Bridesmaid Luncheon

I'm excited to start sharing bits and pieces of our wedding weekend, starting with my bridesmaids' luncheon! My best friend Sarah and her sweet mom hosted a wonderful bruncheon for the on Friday to officially kick off the wedding festivities and it was so wonderful getting to spend time with some of the most important ladies in my life.

Cold Shoulders

"I'm back on my regular blogging schedule," said the girl who hadn't yet opened up her boutique. Seriously though - it is harder than I thought it would be! I really did think I would be able to get back in the groove of blogging three days a week with the store, but I've been so exhausted when I get home from the store that all I want to do is sit on the couch and stare at my eyelids.

Honeymoon to St. Lucia

Our trip to St. Lucia was such a dream and such a fun escape for just the two of us. When Stephen and I started planning our honeymoon, we relied quite a bit on reviews and recommendations from friends. We discussed a variety of ideas: flying to California and taking a road trip up the coast, going to Antigua or the Bahamas, among other options. But we kept coming back to St. Lucia.

New Hair, Who's This?

Goodbye, long locks and hello, short hair! I've been "wanting" to cut my hair for quite some time but knew I wanted to have longer hair for our wedding. My natural hair had gotten fairly long, but I also had hair extensions to add a little length and mostly volume, and though I absolutely loved how they looked, I honestly just got very tired of them and wanted to give my natural hair a break. So I scheduled an appointment and nervously told my stylist to chop it off!

Little White Dress

Happy Monday! Even though we're nearing the end of summer, I'm excited to share this adorable dress I wore for my bridesmaids' luncheon. My friend Sarah hosted an adorable luncheon at The Surf Club at Wrightsville Beach (I'll share more on that soon!) and I wanted something pretty and fun to wear. I ordered a jumpsuit that I thought I was going to love, but nothing about it worked. I looked and looked, and finally made the decision to order this dress.
