Garden Party

And, hello September! It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close, but that also means that jeans and scarf weather is right around the corner, as well as our second wedding anniversary and trip to Puerto Rico! I’m definitely looking forward to a more low-key fall season since we have been going nonstop since June.

This past weekend, we celebrated my bride-to-be cousin – who I’m standing up for at her October wedding – at her garden party themed bridal shower. It was a beautiful day – all the little details really kept with the garden party theme, from flowers all over the house, to rustic decor touches, and even a fresh flower crown from my cousin’s wedding florist for her to wear throughout the day.

Since all the bridesmaids are wearing blush dresses for the big day, I only found it appropriate to stick to that color palette and bust out this chiffon maxi dress that I’ve had hanging in my closet for months just waiting to be worn. I love all the beaded details and its overall lightweight, ethereal feel – it’s a special piece that I plan to wear again for future special occasions.

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
