What to Wear to an End-Of-Summer Wedding


I was recently planning for a wedding in August and trying to decide what was appropriate to wear because while August can be one of the hottest months in Ohio, it's also when fall clothing is starting to come out in stores.  The inner fall-lover in me wanted nothing more then a berry color dress or something in crushed velvet but instead I settled for this gem.

I walked into Nordstrom knowing that I couldn't leave until I found a dress for the wedding and I kind of just stumbled across this guy.  I thought it might fit weird in the chest area because I'd never worn a dress this style before but once I tried it on, it was love at first sight.

I loved how the tie front detail makes it fun and girly, but the fact that it had a cap sleeve made it feel a little more fall esc then a spaghetti strap dress and the fun pattern was perfect for the end of summer.

When shopping for an end-of-summer dressing to attend a wedding, consider something that is a fall style but in a summer pattern. It's feel like you're getting the best of both worlds! I will link some other great dress options down below!!

Love Always,

Perfect Little Black Dress & Life Update...


It's been a little while since I've put up a post but I'm excited to have a little more free time these days & to start posting a little bit more consistently. Heres a brief life update (I say brief because I want to post a real life update in the near future). 

In May I graduated from THE Ohio State University in Strategic Communication with a business minor. Following that I accepted a job with dock580, a wedding and event venue in downtown Columbus.  If you're in Columbus, definitely check it out.... I'm more and more impressed with the company every day I work for them! On June 30th 2017,  I married the sweetest man ever and now we are living in Delaware, Ohio while he is on Young Life staff.  Life has been crazy and busy but I'm just trying to soak up every minute of it because this has been one of my favorite seasons of life thus far!!

Now onto the outfit :) I've been shopping recently for clothing that fits business casual and is wearable for events for work. I found this dress at Nordstrom Rack and became obsessed with it because it has a nice cap-sleeve, a cute back detail, and looks good paired with anything. 

Also, fun little story about these shoes!! So I've loved them on a bunch of instagrammers I follow but I could never justify spending that much money on them because they were more of a fun, trendy shoe and not a closet staple. But I was at Nordstrom Rack and I was just browsing the shoe aisle and I happened to stumble across these shoes. I couldn't believe it, they still sell them at Nordstrom for full price and I found them at Nordstrom Rack for under $40!! Needless to say I snatched them right up and they are now a fun part of my wardrobe. 

I will link everything else up down below, as well as a few other black dress options :) Have a great weekend!! 

Love Always,
