Rehearsal Dinner Outfit Preview

Head to Toe: Dress, Alexis // Bag, Brahmin // Mules, Kenneth Cole // Wine glasses, Rae Dunn

We are on the home stretch, friends, the wedding is FOUR days away! So, needless to say that along with wedding stress, aiming to keep my skin clear by skipping makeup, and this never-ending winter we're having, I haven't taken any outfit photos. So, I figured a sneak peek of my rehearsal dinner outfit was the next best thing! I got this gorgeous Alexis dress from Rent The Runway that is super whimsical and boho. I'll be pairing with gold mules (similar pictured) and my new Brahmin circle bag to toast my husband-to-be. It's been an amazing ride, from planning to the shower and bachelorette party (Instagrams shared below), but I'm ready to do the damn thing! I'll see you after, fashionistas!

Spring Pink & Honeymoon Packing List

Head to Toe: Turtleneck, thrifted // Jacket, Carven // Pants, Trina Turk // Shoes, Seychelles //  Earrings, Aster via Rocksbox

Well guys, it's officially spring. And a few weeks ago when I took these photos, it sort of felt like it. Today, Mother Nature marked the season with another Nor'easter. If you've been to New England, then you know this is pretty typical for late March. If you haven't, it's a lovely place to visit in July and September. So as I sit in front of my snowy window and convalesce from a tummy bug (not sure if it's something I ate or pure wedding stress), I can't help but dream of the Dominican Republic, where Sean and I will be in a few short weeks for our honeymoon.

My packing list includes a few cute white bathing suits (going to ride this bride thing as long as possible) and a bright sarong. Aside from a few formal dinners, I don't plan on wearing much else for the mid-80s and sunny forecast. Another must-bring for travel is my eye mask. Living in the city, our apartment never gets pitch black, and my sleep has totally transformed since I started using one. What are your vacation essentials?

Ready for Spring in Ruffled Sleeves

Head to Toe: T-shirt, Milly // Jacket, Alie & Jay // Jeans, Siwy

Though there's still snow on the ground, I am over this winter! Thankfully, Sean took these photos for me so I didn't have to stand outside as long with my tripod in my spring-ready look. Got to love my Instagram husband, who is soon to be my actual husband! Today marks one month out from the big day. And I'm totally not stressing out GUYS.

Okay, I'm a little stressed out, so I'll keep this post short and sweet. Since I'm in wedding obsession mode, what related content would you like to see on here? Bachelorette dress ideas, my honeymoon packing list, or wedding etiquette 101? Let me know in the comments!

Marni Sweaterdress and a Velvet Topper

Head to Toe: Dress, Marni via Rent the Runway // Turban, &OtherStories // Boots, Thursday Boots // Necklace, Slate (via Rocksbox)

Here's New England for you: Just when you're starting to see glimpses of spring, you get slammed with a Nor'Easter. Thankfully, NYC wasn't hit too badly with this week's storm, but just enough to make our commutes a pain and to leave behind a frosty chill. Yesterday, I was invited to a lunch to celebrate Martha Stewart's new book, Martha's Flowers, and while I wanted to be springlike in honor of the event, this sweater dress had to do. The dress turned out to be a hit, and I had a lovely afternoon listening to Martha talk about gardens. I think I'll pick up some fresh cut blooms on my way home today, since it doesn't look like anything's going to peek up through the snow just yet.

The Sweetest Shower and a Little White Dress

Fashionistas, we're in full-fledged wedding crunch time. Last weekend, my mom and bridesmaids threw me the most wonderful shower near my hometown in Connecticut. I wore this dress, and the snow storm gods were kind enough to stay home (though it looks like they'll be out in force tomorrow). I was too busy being overwhelmingly happy to take proper outfit photos, but I think these snapshots from the day do it justice.

My girls broke Pinterest with the cutest crafts—from a DIY Instagram frame to guess the amount trophy mason jars, games, and an embarrassing (but hilarious) bow hat. Thank you to everyone who helped and attended for your love, advice, laughter, and support. It warms my heart just to look back through these photos. With 39 days to go (not that I'm counting or anything), I'm cherishing every moment.

Red Milly Dress and Lips Clutch for Valentine's Day

Head to Toe: Dress, Milly // Coat, vintage // Booties, Nina // Clutch, Ora Delphine

Happy hearts day, fashionistas! Today is not only Valentine’s Day, but also the two month mark to our wedding! So my face is literally the heart-eye emoji today. Sean and I are celebrating with a nice dinner but otherwise keeping things low key. Thankfully, we have a long weekend coming up to knock out some planning. It’s down to the fun details—what color napkins, a basket for our flower girl, booking the honeymoon—so I’m doing my best to savor this time, because I know the big day will be here before we know it!

Here, I’m sharing an outfit I wore to the Dennis Basso fashion show earlier this week (check Instagram highlights for more), that perfectly suits the day. Tonight, I’m opting for something a little less extravagant, but it’s nice to pretend we’re going to some fancy club that requires a bright red cocktail dress, no?
PS: I'm only in the background, but this outfit made an appearance on Man Repeller and it made my whole Fashion Week.
