Dressing For A Long Distance Flight



Hanes tank & leggings // J.Crew tote // J.Crew Factory flats // Old Navy top & jacket // Lipault Luggage (gifted)

We leave for our honeymoon in less than a month! I'll be honest the last few weeks have been rough -trying to cram everything in before our wedding and being out of work. The one thing that has gotten me through it is day dreaming about our honeymoon in Europe (and of course marrying Austin!). Comfort is my main concern when I travel but I also attemp to look somewhat put together. I've teamed up with Hanes to share my favorite essentials for travel and just lounging or running errands!

Our Entryway Update For Fall


A few weeks ago I picked up some new fall accents for our living room.  I know I won't really have time to decorate for Halloween (see my decor last year here) or Autumn with the wedding and I wanted to make a few quick changes. Homegoods has so much great fall inventory right now it was hard to contain myself - but I've been searching for taper candles in this color and a bust! With pretty fall florals it feels like a new space and matches the changing seasons.

Slowing Down & Speeding Up - A Wedding Update


Today marks 2 weeks from our wedding date. I can't believe it. The past week I've really felt the stress and pressure of our big day for the first time. I haven't been able to sleep. I feel like I'm planning in my dreams and wake up throughout the night and I haven't been cooking (or eating much, let alone healthy) and feel like I can barely catch up. I was hoping these last few weeks would be a bit more calm and more organized -- but I knew my indecisiveness would catch up to me! The past 2 days I've spent really organizing what needs to be done and started packing and I feel like I'm in a better place.

Food Should Taste Good Giveaway


Chips are one of my guilty pleasures. I've been trying to avoid them the last few months in preparation for our upcoming wedding -- but was so excited to try Food Should Taste Good 's guilt free options. All of their chips are made with real natural ingredients and have no transfats. They also come in a variety of fun flavors like Sweet Potato, Olive and Guacamole. We have been enjoying dinners alfresco before fall officially arrives and they were the perfect accompaniment with our grilled fish tacos + guacamole last week! Today I have a fun giveaway from Food Should Taste Good - read on for details!
