Wedding Wednesday: The Shower

OK, I realize this post is way late! Better late than never though!

Back in early September, my mom-in-law and mom co-hosted a beautiful wedding shower for me. Here are a few of the photos from the afternoon.

Dress and Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: DKNY

 There were actually people there, I promise! These photos were taken before and after the party.

A few weeks later my friends from forever threw me a really fun casual shower in my hometown. Thanks so much to everyone who helped me celebrate this exciting time! I do miss being a bride...

Proof that Chucks Go With Anything

Situation: You're in Vegas. You've spent the day outlet shopping. Feet are begging for mercy. Beautiful booties you were going to wear have heels. Heels cannot happen.

Solution: Wear Chucks.

Dress: Banana Republic
Bracelets: Stella & Dot
Sneakers: Converse

I wore this outfit to Ryan's bachelor party at SeƱor Frogs. The boys spent the afternoon at Las Vegas Speedway and then went to dinner at Carmine's. I had a lovely dinner at The Cheesecake Factory with my friends Amy and Shannon (thanks for the pics Shan!) before heading to the party. R and I have been saying how much we miss Vegas lately! It was such a fun time, and I'm sure we'll never have that many friends in Vegas together again... unless someone else gets married!

We have our wedding photos now! We have looked at about 300 of them, but there are around 3000 in total. Once we've seen them all, I will do a few wedding posts!

TOMS for Target

Stylish and charitable - I adore the new Target collaboration!

On Nov. 16, Target and TOMS launched their line. I was stoked to go that morning, but life (and my life right now is cleaning and organizing) got in the way. Monday at lunch was when I was able to check it out.

For each item bought, a week of meals, a blanket, or shoes will be donated to someone in need. How could you possibly say no? It's like donating to charity and getting something great for free!

The hoodies are beautiful, but I just don't need another hoodie in my life right now. If you're in the market for one, you should definitely check them out! I tried on the lighter poncho but like every other poncho, it seemed to overwhelm me. If I can find the darker one at another store, I'll try it on. TOMS shoes are so cute, but they are always too wide for me. I love the black shiny ones from this collection!

Here's the link to the full collection:

I ended up choosing a pretty, casual, but feminine tee (shown below) that has rose gold lettering. For $16 and the charitable donation, it was a total steal. Since it was for charity, I'm not counting it towards my clothing budget for the quarter.

Hurry to Target before this collection disappears!

On the Porch

Before our house was done (we've been moved in for two weeks now), we stopped by almost every day to see how things on the exterior were going. I was excited when the front porch was added - it turned out bigger than we expected!

Vest: Smart Set
Shirt and Jeans: Gap
Boots: Aldo

I can see this front porch being a backdrop for many future blog posts. We've been really busy trying to get everything settled from the move. The room that is taking the most time to organize is definitely the master closet! I keep moving things around and still need to find "homes" for most of my accessories and jewellery. Does anyone have any idea on where to put tank tops? They seem like a waste of space to hang...
