You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Every time I get discouraged about my blog and wonder if it’s worth me writing – I’m too busy, it’s only about fashion/my unimportant life, not that many people read it, etc. – something random happens to encourage me that I should keep writing. Two such random things happened this week, so here I am.

I do love my little blog, and I so appreciate all of you who read and comment and let me know when something I’ve written has encouraged or inspired you. It means a lot to know that I could positively make a difference in even the smallest way, just by pouring out my thoughts and style and bad dating stories. So, thank you. And if any of you have some really good ideas on how I could make money (or at least get free things to review) through my blog, please send them my way. I don’t mind writing for free; it’s fun. However, a monetary incentive might help bump it up on the priority list a little…

In that spirit, here is a bright and cheerful outfit, just to celebrate style and writing and friendships. I feel a little like Ronald McDonald when I wear red and yellow, but it’s an unexpected color combo that works if you own it. And, the shoes conveniently have both colors (well, close enough) to tie everything together:

But, I can promise that I will keep sharing my delight for fashion and my stories about life and faith and maybe one day love. And, I hope you will do the same – I love hearing from you.

Thanks for being friends.

Bachelorette in the City

This summer is a busy one for me, as I’m in two non-local weddings. So that means flights, showers, bachelorette parties, and pretty things galore. (It also means two of my single girl hold-outs are abandoning me (insert sobbing face emoji x3)).

Anyway, the first bachelorette party was this weekend, and I didn’t even have to go anywhere. If you didn’t know, Nashville is, without hyperbole, the bachelorette party capital of the US (Vegas is the guys’ version). So, this weekend I got to play tourist in my own town (coming up on 6 months living here, y’all, so I’m definitely a local now), and it was so fun.

Of course, as every good bride (and bridesmaid) knows, every bachelorette party must have a theme, and ours was Bachelorette in the City. So, we got to go the classy route, wearing black and white with pink accents.

I didn’t have a chance to get a full-length picture of my outfit by myself, but I’m sure you’d rather see me with the bride, anyway. She looked so pretty in her sparkly, white dress, didn’t she?

1- bachelorette partyAt the beginning of the season, I always feel a little “over-exposed” wearing strapless things or shorts, but I do love this romper so much, and since most of my closet is a little more colorful, I had limited black and white options, anyway. Tack on some pink earrings, pink pumps, and some complimentary gold accessories, and I was on-theme and ready to take over Broadway.

Below are some of the details for a closer look. I also really liked my makeup, but I haven’t figured out a way to accurately capture it on camera (suggestions?). In the meantime, I included this picture because you can kinda tell what it looked like, and I thought maybe you’d also like to see my wrinkles…
