There are so many blog posts and magazine articles about things that brides are TIRED of hearing but there are also things that Bride’s adore hearing! Here are my top ten things that Brides love hearing!

  1. “I am SO happy for you!!” Obvious but it still feels amazing to revel in your joy with a friend or someone you’ve never met.
  2. “You and _____ make such a wonderful couple. I know how much you love each other.” (This is what the entire wedding should be about, how much you truly love one another. I love it when people remind me they see it too!)
  3. “How is work/school/sport?” (It might sound strange but sometimes I just don’t want to talk about my wedding. I know. Totally nuts. It can be easy to forget that there is more to life than weddings when you’re about to have one. I always appreciate when anyone asks how the REST of my life is coming along!)
  4. “What can I do to help?” (Being a bride is extremely overwhelming at times, and even though she probably won’t take up your offer to help it feels good to know someone cares enough to ask. <3 )
  5. “Would you like me to come to your _____ appointment with you?” (This is one of my favourite things anyone can say lately because there are so many meetings, appointments, fittings etc. and especially when family isn’t close, having friends around for support means the world!)
  6. “Where are you registered?” 😉 (Self explanatory)
  7. “I can’t wait to be part of your special day!”
  8. “I love your choice of ______! It’s so beautiful and unique!” (Even though a bride is confident in her personal touches for her wedding, it still feelings ah-mazing when someone else recognizes all the extra effort you put in!)
  9. “I know of a great app/site/person that can do ____ for less!” (Everyone knows how incredibly expensive weddings are/can be, and if someone finds a great deal and wants to share their tips and tricks with you- it’s even better!)
  10. “I wish and pray for a long life of happiness together”. (This is the thing that can bring a tear to my eye no matter who says it. Giving your well wishes to a couple who is about to embark on a new journey together is truly the greatest gift you can ever give a couple.) <3

What should you wear to go out tonight? Well, first off, where are you going? Are you going out with friends or having dinner with your family?

Ask yourself before you even look in your closet the following things:

Am I going somewhere upscale (and fancy)?

Is this a casual gathering?

Will my grandmother be there? If so, should I really wear a bandage dress?

Outfit Details:

Dress: Urban Outfitters 

Belt: Burberry

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Bag: Chanel

The second outfit I wore to New York Fashion Week was filled with lots of color. It’s a well known fact that most women in NYC wear black. And while I love noir, I love color even more. It can be easy to just want to fit in and shy away from what we love but I decided to be a little daring and wear bubble gum pink.

Love this little pin I found at a costume jewelry store in the meatpacking district. 

Matched my Dior sneakers with this adorable little bow (actually a sash from a cocktail dress) Double duty!

Outfit Details: 

Shirt: Zara

Jacket: Bubble gum pink 50′s vintage

Pants: American Apparel

Purse: Chanel GST

Shoes: Dior Fusion sneakers

Necklace: Betsey Johnson <3

The last days of summer are always the sweetest. Normally, back home in North Carolina, the air has cooled down and it’s still warm enough to be outside all day long without feeling sticky. Here in NYC it’s an entirely different story. The hair is heavy and sticky so all I really want to wear as of late is sheer fabrics, and very breathable cotton. 

Having chiffon pants is so incredibly cooling on hot days, I got mine from American Apparel and I can’t say enough great things about them. They are extremely comfortable and go with so much. I wore them with very sheer leggings, although normally I pair this with black shorts.

Shirt: Thrifted 

Pants: American Apparel

Bag: Chanel Grand Shopping Tote

Hat: Vintage 80′s 

Earrings: Vintage 80′s
