Outfit: My wedding outfit

Thumbnail image for Outfit: My wedding outfit

If you haven’t seen it yet, I posted earlier this month that our wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty (you can see my post here). If you are planning a beach wedding, I certainly recommend a simple dress, for a very simple reason: it gets hot and you are on the beach, picture that when planning for your wedding outfit. Another reason is actually personal preference –  I prefer simple but yet elegant and timeless. Dress Nicole Miller Shoes: TOMS ash canvas wedges (ceremony) + Badgley Mischka Randall (reception) Jewelry: ETSY vendor (BumbershootDesigns) Headpiece: Lo APLT design (ceremony) + Lo APLT design (reception) Bouquet(s): Lo APLT design Did you have a beach wedding?

Smile to yucky blah days

I don’t like like yucky blah days (as my nephew would say)… winter is depressing, it gets cold, I don’t want to get out of the bed, and it gets dark before 5pm – at least here in NY. To add more to the equation, winter is long in NY.  So options are to whine about it and be sad during the 5 months winter lasts, or put a smile on your face and make the best of it.
