There is something about summer that I simply love.  I enjoy the long beautiful nights and particularly enjoy that summer brings out a certain care-free spirit in me.  It is probably the thought of picnics, beaches, and barbeques which put me in a good mood.  A great cotton dress, an earthy wedge, a classic navy bikini, loose waves and a pop of color on the toes pair perfectly with sipping freshly squeezed iced cold lemonade on everlasting days.  Here are some of my summer must-haves that can take you from day to night without even breaking a sweat.

44 Days and Counting

Hello all!  I apologize for being out of commission for what has seemed like eternity.  The past months have been a flurry of excitement and go-go-go.  To recap, I got engaged and am to be wed this September!  To top it off, I've been working non-stop and very little time for leisure or my beloved blogging.

Preparing for a wedding has been everything I imagined.  A compilation of stress, creativity, excitement and a lot of preparation.  Details, details, details:  from the invitations, flowers, dress, food, music {that is seriously just a sliver of the things that have been whirling through my head}.

At the end of the day, I really am just grateful to be marrying the man I love and looking forward to having a marvelous time. 

Hope you can enjoy the rest of my journey with me for the countdown of the wedding!

Here are just a few beautiful photos that have inspired my style for the big day.
