Happy Monday, and cheers to February! This month is quite possibly my favorite – between Valentine’s Day, my golden birthday (turning 27 on the 27th), AND the added bonus of our Disney World trip at the end of the month, I couldn’t be more excited for the weeks ahead.

As I mentioned in Friday’s post, Ryan and I were in Minnesota this past weekend to celebrate the wedding reception of my brother-in-law and his wife. Since the dead of winter in Minnesota is no joke, I had been on the hunt for months for a cocktail dress with sleeves – thanks to TJMaxx online, I scored this one for only $50! I did have to get it altered a bit since it was a size bigger than I normally wear, but now I have a classic, well-fitted cocktail dress that I can wear for many future occasions. (Psst – we took these photos last week before we left since there was going to be zero time to find a spot in the hotel to shoot outfit photos. #bloggerproblems)

I didn’t want to take away from the lace detail of the dress, so I decided to keep my jewelry relatively simple. These round cut CZ studs from Anjolee fit the bill – not too quiet but also not too flashy. In addition to gorgeous sets of earrings, Anjolee also has a great selection of eternity bands – Valentine’s Day gifts, anybody? Complete with a pair of sheer tights and the most comfortable heels that
I’ve ever worn, I was both warm and ready to dance the night away!

It was a fun, quick weekend getaway surrounded by family and close family friends, and we are happy that we were able to take part in such a special day for Ryan’s brother and his wife.
How was your weekend?

@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
