Had a great time in Dallas over Thanksgiving with my family and Lucas. This holiday season is our first one spent together.
Not pictured: My mom and sister wearing this exact outfit, on this exact day.
Whatcha been up to... buyin scarves?
This is everything.
(Also, I saw the movie today and loved it.)
Since I got my wedding dress, I’ve been hemming and hawing over what to wear with it (I’ve also been binge-watching Say Yes to the Dress for some reason, but that’s another post entirely). Initially I was thinking I really needed to make a statement with accessories since my dress is so simple, and now I’m rethinking that.
Yesterday, I was remembering how one of my favorite Glamour bloggers of yesteryear had the most gorgeous, simple wedding dress, which she paired with almost no jewelry. I think I’m still going to try on a bunch of necklaces and belts with my dress to see what I end up liking, but this photo is a nice reminder- simple can be stunning.
The weather has been turning quite chilly here (I’ve busted out my trusty puffer coat more than once already), and when that happens I get a serious craving for a good spooky tale. Last year around this time I picked up Shirley Jackson’s “We Have Always Lived in the Castle,” which fit the bill perfectly.
Right now I’m in the middle of "Dare Me" by Meg Abbott, which is like if Gillian Flynn wrote a book about cheerleading (and by that I mean- awesome). It’s definitely dark, but I want something that’s downright spine-chilling. (And of course something that can easily be obtained at the Brooklyn Public Library.)
Doesn’t this bride look so laid back and cool? I want to become friends with her so she can teach me the secret to bridal nonchalance. Also, her dress is simple and has short sleeves and so does mine, so clearly we are kindred spirits.
Autumn in New York makes me feel like I’m being swept up in some kind of fairytale romance. My walk home today (pictured above) was perfection.
I love this photo of my grandparents on their wedding day. Every time I look at it I become filled with raw emotion, and just now I wondered if that’s what my own wedding day will feel like.
"Now go forth and have a blog-chic wedding. Or don’t. Who cares."
(I love this.)
