tips on planning a bridal shower

On Saturday, I helped to host a bridal shower for one of my very best friends, Logan. It was held at Amelie's, an adorable French bakery in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte right outside of uptown. We gathered with her closest family and friends to celebrate her becoming a Mrs! I'm certainly no expert on throwing a party but today I'm sharing just a few tips on throwing a shower for that special bride in your life.

Fall Bucket List

Sep 23, 2016

fall bucket list

TGIF!! My favorite season is officially in full swing and I couldn't be more excited. And yes, I had a love for fall wayyyy before blogging. I still remember when my dad would rake all the leaves in the front yard and jumping in them was the highlight of my day. Trick-or-treating was my favorite and I still remember dressing up as a "southern belle" and wearing one of those frilly dresses from Dollywood (did anyone else have one of those?!). Dressing up in college was a huge deal with so many costume parties to go to and over the years, the season has become more about taking long hikes, going to fall festivals and just spending time with friends & family. I thought it was only fitting to share this years bucket list on the second day of fall!

Last Friday night, I joined some local Charotte bloggers at City Lights rooftop at Le Méridien for an end-of-summer bash with Diet Coke. I thought I'd share a few photos and show y'all my favorite accessory of the night!

It's Here!! Our Wedding Video Trailer

Oh happy day!!!

After much anticipation, the video trailer for our wedding has finally arrived! And y'all... I'm in love. Reel Weddings truly outdid themselves and it is amazing to look back and see all the highlights of our day.

We were debating on whether to get a videographer in the early stages of planning (I kind of had to talk Ryan into it) but trust me, it is 100% worth it. Even Ryan will agree- he was so excited about the video and I'm so glad he trusted my judgement ;)

We won't get our full feature film for a few more months, but until then I'll just keep this on repeat. A few favorite moments are getting ready with my bridesmaids, Ryan twirling me around the dance floor, and reciting our vows. Oh and my maid-of-honor's speech. So sweet! Here's a little look into our wedding day...

Olive Pleated Midi Skirt

ASOS pleated midi skirt

Another week gone and suddenly we’re in the middle of September… craziness! On Friday, I attended a fun party with some other Charlotte bloggers that was sponsored by Diet Coke and I will recap that soon but first I wanted to share what I wore with you guys. It was the perfect transitional outfit because it kept me cool but incorporated some fall vibes... and I also think everyone needs this skirt in their closet!
