50 Shades

If you haven't already given into the 'hype', I am sorry to say, but you are missing out. 50 Shades of Grey is an amazing read, and is one that you certainly cannot put down. I do not normally get consumed by a book, but this one kept me wanting to read more & more. I highly suggest getting lost in the world of Christian Grey....

Happy Reading!

Wedding Weekend

Well today is the big wedding day! We've been here all week gearing up to celebrate the wedding! Last night was the rehearsal dinner and it was so much fun! It was in Pirates Cove, which is ahh-mazing! It was like a mini-wedding, with dinner, cake, wine, and dancing to a great band. The colors of the wedding are pink and navy and the decor was absolutely precious. Tonight the reception is at the aquarium so I cant wait to see it, I know everything will look absolutely perfect.

 Here are some of my favorite navy and pink combinations....

Congrats Charlie and Lindsay!

What I'm Wearing

I am so excited to get a week to relax and catch some rays in the Outer Banks. I am also excited to get dressed up for the wedding this weekend! Need help with your wedding wardrobe? Here's what I am wearing this weekend...

I am wearing this dress in Coral! I got it from a local boutique and absolutely love it!
I am wearing the Aldo version of these wedges I bought last season. 
You can find the DVF version here!

Because we will be at the beach, I think these gold starfish earrings will be a great accent to my coral dress! I love hair pulled back with a strapless dress and earrings to set it off. You can find these earrings here!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I am so excited to travel Tuesday to Nags Head, NC for a week to celebrate a wedding and Memorial Day Weekend with Chip! I love weddings and I am sure this one will be amazing!  With wedding season upon us, its important to remember some proper etiquette. If you're like me and stare at your silverware, wondering what you could possibly do with 3 forks, this little tool may be of some help. Here is a little study guide for how to use your place setting properly! 

Happy Wedding Season!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Today I am looking forward to getting some errands done, having dinner with one of my girlfriends and possibly (weather permitting) go to the Sumer Concert on the Lawn series at Mayfaire Town Center with some friends! They have bands come play live every Friday for free, you bring chairs and coolers and just have a good time! Hopefully the weather will be nice and sunny, if so, this would be my go-to outfit...

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Neon Green Obsession

As you can see, neons and brights have taken over as one of the top spring trends. My favorite neon trend right now is bright neon green. Never would have thought it, but I am loving it. Neon green can be paired with almost any color and is the perfect pop to any outfit...

Don't you just love it?
