    Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!  I spent the first half of the weekend back home in Virginia and the second half of the weekend in Atlanta.  On Friday my Mom and I went to Georgetown, D.C. for my second bridal fitting at Hitched!  Any ladies shopping in the D.C. area for wedding dresses, I highly recommend going to Hitched (obviously I’m a little biased) and Lovely Bride.  Both bridal salons are located in Georgetown and are within walking distance of one another.  After my bridal fitting, my Mom and I went shopping for accessories to go with my wedding dress.   Read more

    The first weekend of May I went to Nashville for my bachelorette party with a group of my best friends and my two younger sisters.  My two sisters (pretty much my middle sister) planned the most amazing bachelorette party weekend for me.  I had never been to Nashville before and wanted to spend my bachelorette weekend at a city I had never been to.  It was a toss-up between Austin and Nashville, since I’d heard so many wonderful things about both cities, but I ended up deciding on Nashville.  After visiting Nashville, I can see why everyone is obsessed with the city…I loved it and would move there in a heartbeat.  Read more


    Perfect White Summer Dress

    I frequently shop online at Lyon + Post because I find new emerging designers that I love.  For my bridal shower I bought a blush dress by the brand Three Eighty Two.  I’d never heard of the brand Three Eighty Two before, so I researched the brand after I received so many compliments from my friends and family at bridal shower.  My bridal shower dress is called the “Mia 3/4 Surplice Dress” in the color Quartz.

    Three Eighty Two launched in 2014, so the brand is only 2 years old.  Their collections are clean cut, minimalistic and classic.  I’m very girly and like to only invest in clothing pieces that are classic and can go with other items in my closet.  Three Eighty Two’s collection is comprised of chic pared down silhouettes blended with relaxed tailoring.  I’m sometimes horrible with wearing prints, but their collection mixes solids with some prints.  Three Eighty Two is sold online at a few retailers including South Moon Under, Revolve, Lyst and on Three Eighty Two’s website.

    I love finding local boutiques and brands!  I found a new amazing brand, titled Blluemade, based out of Atlanta and I’m obsessed with the quality of their designs!  Blluemade is an emerging brand founded by a husband and wife team (how amazing is that?) born out of a desire to have garments that travel well and are both functional and elegant for your everyday wear.  To achieve this, Blluemade uses Belgium linen as the cornerstone of each garment as it is durable and sustainable with a beautiful natural texture + drape.  The flax used in the linen is harvested down to the roots, making the harvested fibers particularly long, soft, strong, and the finished-product wrinkle-resistant.     Read more
