Fall just happens to be one of my favorite seasons of the year — PSL’s return, people won’t look at me weirdly for drinking hot apple cider (…I drink cider year round), and I can add a scarf to my daily ensembles.  In addition to these occurrences, the leaves are changing and event color palettes are being influenced by nature’s vibrant, burnt tones.

A Rehearsal Dress Option from Lilly

I have recently become more of a Lilly fan–I can honestly say I wasn’t too keen on their attire beforehand.  The Fall and Spring lines they’ve produced within the past year or two have been more sophisticated and definitely more trend-right (in my opinion) than the Lilly dresses of the past.  Continue reading

Another Take On A First Look Photo

I don’t know about you all but I am a sucker for first look photos.  They are always the most adorable, heartwearming, images!  My only issue with them is that I, personally, wouldn’t want to reveal myself to my groom until the moment I walk down the aisle.  As I was pinning my little heart away, I came across this little gem of a first look photo that I absolutely adore.  Continue reading
