Let the celebration's begin...

I'm beyond excited for tonight.  It's the first of many parties to celebrate Alex & I tieing the knot.  My mother, her best friend and my sister are throwing us that engagement party that I've been talking about for months.  I'm sad that one of my besties can't be there {sigh}, but I am still ready to pop the champagne, dance and reminisce.  Thank you so very much for doing this for us.  It means the world to the both of us!!  Love you guys!

Hampton's Bound

Hampton's Bound...

I saw this picture on pinterest yesterday and it screamed hamptons.  How cute is it?  It's picture perfect.  I put this adorable look together for $170.  I'm purchasing all of it immediately. I cannot wait for summer.  Strolling in East Hampton towm with my pup & my boy sipping Golden Pear coffees & then heading to the beach... It's sheer delight. I'm counting down the days...

Our Weekend

What a great weekend!!  Friday night was a stress reliever with my sweetie.  First some drinks and then a flick.  I literally can't do anything on Friday nights because after a busy week, I just want to crash.  Saturday was the best- we spent the afternoon at Eataly with Alex's parents.  If you haven't been definitely make the trip- It's a bit of a tourist trap, but way worth it.  It brought me back to Italy.  We picked up some groceries and headed back to the apartment to make Alex's dad's famous sauce & meatballs.  I would post the recipe, but I was sworn to secrecy.  It is AMAZING.  Then, we invited my parents over for an impromptu dinner party where I got to use my new china! (we were having way too much fun and I forgot to take pictures! So sad! At least I got the table!).  Sunday was spent relaxing on the Upper East Side with my fiance and pup... some delicious left-overs were demolished.  It was perfect.  Hope yours was equally as wonderful!

Friday's Wedding Favorites

There are a plethora of dresses out there, but I've made my decision (with a few custom details of course).  The final swatches are in... once I choose the color and fabric it is off to be made.  I'm so excited to see the real thing!  Eeeeeeek I'm giddy with happiness and I cannot wait to share the pictures with you after the wedding!!!  Have a wonderful weekend, girls!

Style GF: Miranda Kerr- Look for less

Style GF: Miranda Kerr- Look for less

I adore Miranda Kerr.  Her style is simple, chic and fun.  This look is right up my alley.  I'm usually in a button down with jeans and some heals.  It's such a sexy, but still classic look.  I've broken down her entire outfit plus some cute accessories for under $300.
