Love is in the Air...

... it's wedding season!!
Let's talk a little about summer wedding FASHION:
  • choose pretty colors for daytime weddings-- keep it fun and flirty (yet suave)!
  • jazz it up a bit more for weddings after 6pm
  • steer clear of whites for weddings-- neutrals and beiges are okay.
  • black is great for after 6pm weddings-- if you have a dress that stays sophisticated yet sleek, go for it!!

Looks i Love:


remove the necklace and shoes and spice this fun, flirty dusty chartreuse dress up a little


oh! whoops-- this should go under things i CRAVE!
i love boiled peanuts especially around this time of year.

Have a Safe Memorial Weekend-- Buckle up, and don't TEXT and Drive!!

joies jusqu'à la prochaine fois!
