Lash Extensions


I recently got lash extensions for my upcoming wedding (8 days to go!) and it's safe to say I'm obsessed! My sister works at a salon & spa and she's a pro with everything from hair, nails, lashes and microblading! It took about an hour, which was mostly relaxing since my eyes were closed but a little uncomfortable when the time came to tape down my bottom lashes. I have a bit of an eye-phobia (I can't even use eye drops!) but once we got past that, it was a breeze! I am in love with the results - long & full lashes that still look natural. Best part = no mascara! Bring on the wedding day tears! 

It's been quiet in my little corner of the internet lately, thanks to the final stages of wedding planning. The last month of planning is stressful nonetheless, but add a destination wedding right after Hurricane Irma just hit, and it's a recipe for disaster. It was the most stressful couple weeks filled with meltdowns, a full-blown panic attack at work, and countless calls with my coordinator. We came this close to having to change pretty much every detail including the city, venue, caterer and florist, but I'm happy to announce that all of our original plans are still in affect to get married in Key West on October 7th! So relieved and ready to celebrate with all of our friends and family! I'm hoping to get back to regular posting next month. Check back soon for a full recap on our wedding week & honeymoon travels!

Pearl Slides


My current go-to outfit is comprised of basics paired with statement accessories. These lace shorts have gotten a lot of wear in the last few years (such as here, here & here) mainly due to both their ease and comfort. They also lend a more refined touch than the cut-off shorts I usually gravitate toward on the weekends. I scored these slides at Target (only $25 and also come in blush!) and love the pearl embellishments. I finished off the look with my bright red bag for a pop of color.
