It's the Weekend!

image one || two

Hello, Friday!

This weekend is one I've been anxiously awaiting. My best friend and his partner were married in NYC over Memorial Day weekend and this weekend is the ceremony + reception here in Cincinnati. Which makes this the first official wedding of the season and means I'll be dancing the night away with all of my best friends from childhood. I seriously couldn't think of a more perfect way to celebrate this amazing occasion and can't wait to get the party going!

Here's to the fun weekend ahead!

Travel Necessity

Sometimes when packing for a trip I cringe when the time comes to pack up my pretty baubles. The thought of packing a few pieces together only to have them come out in one tangled+knotted mess just makes my stomach turn! And with a few out of town weddings on the horizon, this is an issue I've been needing to address. So imagine my happiness when I received an email from BaubleBar which solves all of my problems: right now when you spend $50+ you'll receive a free jewelry roll!
New pretty baubles I've had my eye + no more tangled messes? Count me in!

So what are you waiting for?

Closet Craving || A Lace Dress

No.1 Laser Sundays Afternoon Dress || No.2 Dinner with a Darling Dress || No.3 Ballet Benefactor Dress

I couldn't be more in love with lace right now and Modcloth sure is bringing its A-Game.
These three beauties are absolute perfection!

Tuesday's Tune

Do you have a song that reminds you of summer?  
A song that no matter where you are or what you might be doing, you hear those first couple of notes and you are transported to a warm summer day hanging out with friends, driving with the windows down or even just laying by the pool.

For me this song will forever be summer.

What's your 'summer song'?
I'd love to hear!

Life Updates + Weekend Rewind

Happy Monday!

Can you believe this is the last week in June? I feel like summer is almost over and we just had the first official day of summer on Friday! I'm making sure to soak up as much time in the sun as possible [with sunscreen of course!] because before we know it, it's going to be fall. Just crazy I tell ya!

I actually had a "free" weekend so it was spent enjoying a few happy hours, laying by the pool and hanging out with family.
What did you get into? Anything fun?

The Perfect Sandal

I love adding a pop of color to an outfit and these green Zara sandals fit the bill.
And I'm pretty sure I'd pair them with this little number.

Hey friends! Sorry for being MIA Friday and yesterday.
I took a long weekend to celebrate my college roommates bachelorette party in Chicago and I'm still playing catch up.
I'll be back tomorrow but until then, enjoy this happy song!

Closet Craving || Strappy Lace Midi Dress

It's safe to say I'm more than in love with this dress.
Do I need it? Nah. But do I want it? YES, because it's gorgeous!

C. Wonder

Lately I've been spending some time perusing C. Wonder. I love all the fun + colorful pieces they have to offer. The wooden ice cream spoons have me itching to have an ice cream sundae party and I think my desk at work could really use the bullhorn speaker. I'm really wishing this green beauty was hanging in my closet and how perfect is this sparkly little number!

I love when my friends share new music with me.
Nothing better than receiving a random text that tells me to check out a song.
That's what happened with this song [thanks Lori!].

It's another fun one so be sure to give it a whirl!

Weekend Rewind

Happy Monday, friends! 
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fantastic since Cincinnati some how dodged the storms that were originally on the forecast. Hello, 70 and Sunny! While out shopping around I scored some major deals but am having a hard time deciding on a favorite since they are all so pretty! I also marked some items off the 'to do' list which was a must since this week is going to be a busy one.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!
