Bachelorette/Honeymoon Essentials

Happy Friday! 
This week has been full of wedding planning and stocking up on summer essentials =) Not a bad week if you ask me.  I FINALLY got all my wedding invites and shower invites out! {most would ask why the bride is sending out her own shower invites, but that is how OCD I am about everything getting done, I physically couldn't rely on other people to do it without going mad}

But I got a bunch of new swim suits, for obvious reasons {if you've been following the blog} lol
A few dresses to take on the honeymoon, one of those crop tops {I think my stomach is in decent enough shape to pull it off} and some new shoes for my Rehearsal Dinner {I really hate silver shoes with a passion, but they were the only color that would go with my dress}

 Dress from Tobi 
I have been dying to wear a deep backless dress like this, what better place than my honeymoon?!
Dress from Victoria's Secret
This dress will be perfect by day with sandals and a fedora, then add some heels and a classy up do for dinner that night.

 Just a few of the swim suits I bought.  I think I ordered 6 total, but I plan on returning at least 2. 
I figured if I just ordered a bunch at one time, it will save me from having to make multiple returns and exchanges. It's so hard to order online sometimes, especially swim suits, when they don't look nearly as good on you as they do these models!

All swimsuits are from Victoria's Secret
This one below from ASOS

And I can't possibly go to Vegas without another cute beach tote!

Tote-Rebacca Minkoff $28!!!

Weekend Fun + Sunday Funday

Happy Summer everyone! I am so thrilled that summer is finally here and NE Ohio actually got the memo! The weather has been gorgeous, and I couldn't be happier! {aside from the sunburn, but it comes with the territory!} 

A few photo's from this weekend, we headed to our hometown for the 27th Annual Newton Falls Car Show, it's a small town thing, we go every year, it would be a tragedy to miss it! 

 My cousin Jenn and I, we could totally pass for sisters!
When you see it...Jenn photo bombing me!
Mint Chevron Jamberry nail decals :)

Then Saturday night we took a party bus for my girlfriend's birthday.
The only pic of all the girls...and it's in the bathroom! Classy! 

Then we woke up Sunday morning and just decided to keep the party going, so we crashed a local apartment complex pool and had our own little Sunday Funday, homemade jorts were definitely present! 
Yes, we actually cut a pair of jeans to make jorts since he didn't have his swim trunks.

Shout out to Dr. G-Holler!

Well that's about my weekend in a nutshell.  It was great to spend the first official summer weekend with my family, fiance and some great friends!
Back to the standard outfit post tomorrow.

The Senators Wife

There are very few times that I dress conservatively, but when I do, it usually involves pearls and I usually end up feeling like some Republican politician's wife.  Today, was one of those days...

Nobody likes a Quitter

I apologize for my absence, it was horrible blogger etiquette to just leave without a warning, or even say when I'll be back.  But the truth is, one day, I was just not in the mood, so I decided to take a day off.  Well, the next day came, and I wasn't in the mood again.  Day after day, I'm not sure why exactly, I just wasn't in the mood to blog.  It just didn't excite me or bring me that sense of accomplishment like it had in the past.  It used to be my favorite part of the day, visiting all my blogger 'friends' on your blogs and posting about my newest fashion creation.  I'm not sure if it was the stress of the wedding or what, I still don't know.  I couldn't even bring myself to open up my 'Blogger' and look at anything.  It sounds sad and depressing, but I assure you it's not.  I am alive and well and I think I'm ready to continue this blogging journey I started, around a year ago! I had hoped by my one year anniversary I would do some fun give-a-way, or have a special one year anniversary blog post, but the excitement isn't back in that full of force yet.  But I just wanted to return and say Hello, I am here, doing well :) My wedding planning is coming to a close and I'm getting ready for all my summer adventures that lie ahead.  Perhaps a summer bucket list is in order...Maybe next post.  But for today, just some random photos from my 2 month hiatus.

 Purchased my Bridal Shower dress for my Kentucky Derby themed shower.
