Affordable Fall Dresses for Wedding Guest

With my wedding just two short months away and it being a fall wedding I'm getting asked all the time (literally everyday) "What do I wear to a fall wedding?" 
Obviously, I love to answer this question because I LOVE talking fashion. So to help everyone out I've rounded up my 10 favorite dresses to wear as a wedding guest this fall... and SPOILER alert: this dress (pictured) is my number one choice and spoiler #2, none of my dresses involve the color white- duh! When it comes to fall weddings I always think classic dress and totally opt for fun shoes! And, remember to pair your cocktail dress with scarves and a super chic jacket; layering is in, so plan for practical & stylish.

white lace dress

Over the weekend, I shared on my Instagram stories that it was raining where B & I live, so we took an unexpected adventure to West Hartford Center. While visiting WeHa, we took advantage of the beautiful fall day with lunch on the outdoor patio, ice cream from Milk Craft, and a blog shoot (of course). I'm so beyond lucky that in 40 days I get to marry my best guy; someone who is so supportive and encouraging of me and my dreams. There's not many guys I know that will patiently take photos of my ice cream, then go back and wait in line to get his own #husbandgoals.

pumpkin picking & favorite J. Crew vest

Happy fall y'all! October has been un-seasonally warm for New England. And while I'm anxious to bring out my blanket scarves, tights and boots, I'm still really enjoying holding onto summer a little longer. I'm also a little selfishly hoping this warmer weather carries into November. I don't need it to be 70 degrees, but I'd prefer it to be warm enough so guests at our wedding aren't freezing.  For today's look I'm wearing everyone's (seriously, everyone's) favorite fall vest. I'm obsessed with J. Crew and J. Crew factory vests. These vests are perfect for transitioning outfits and adding extra warmth without bulk. They are truly a staple in my fall wardrobe. Confession time: I already own four and plan to add one more to my collection this year. Every year this patterned vest floods instagram and pinterest accounts and it always sells out. Be sure to pick yours up now, while it's on sale (only $44). 
PS: You can support my blog by purchasing this vest through the "shop the post" links.

Maxi dress & Chambray

Happy Columbus Day y'all. This is definitely one of my favorite weekends in the fall, because it comes at the perfect time. We are fully back into the routines at school now, so it is a nice surprise to have an extra day off for some fall activities. Over the weekend, B & I went on our first apple picking adventure of the season. We always have so much fun choosing exactly what apples we each want to pick and then later making homemade apple crisp. On Sunday, I was lucky enough to host my second event with Loft, this time at the Westfarms Mall. It was such a fun day filled with shopping, styling, snacks and more! Thank you to everyone who came out to meet & shop with me. Y'all are truly the best! Today I'm off for a deep conditioning treatment at my hair salon (these are a cheaper alternative to a hair cut and help to keep my long locks healthy) and lastly, I'm hoping I will be able to take some more photos for the blog. Fingers crossed the rain holds off.

Wedding Wednesday: The Bridal Shower

Today’s post is about to get personal… so get ready!

The previous weekend was seriously the BEST. I’m not even exaggerating, a few others come to mine in comparison: getting engaged, some fabulous birthdays, traveling abroad etc. but this weekend was definitely one for the books. So… you’re probably wondering “What happened?” Last Saturday, my lovely bridesmaids and beautiful mama threw me the most gorgeous surprise bridal shower. I say surprise because although I knew the date and location I knew NOTHING about the details and the day was absolutely perfect. So, for today I’m dishing all the details about what made this day SO great.
