Outfit: Vintage 70s Button Down and Black Zippered Mini Skirt

70s button down geometric blouse with black denim zip up skirt and platinum blonde hair

There are pieces in my wardrobe that have been with me way longer than I thought. I guess in my mind college isn't that far away. Then I actually count the years since I thrifted this 70s pointy collar button down. (Hint: It was at least 7 or 8 years ago. Yikes.) Even if it sits in my closet a lot, it makes an appearance ever so often - usually paired with red, blue, or black - to make my day better with its bold, but not too crazy, print and fabulous ultra wide pointy collar. 

This time I paired my much-loved button down with a black denim mini skirt, fleece-lined tights, and a pair of black lace-up oxford heels. Usually this shirt gets paired with some sort of solid skirt since it's so bold. Even if it's somewhat similar to past looks, it's almost like my outfits in general are a little different-looking when I'm blonde! The platinum blonde gives everything a little ice princess vibe. Especially when there's actually ice and snow on the ground.

Spssst: Scroll down for a cute dog picture.

These pictures were taken a little bit ago when we got some very unexpected snow here in Atlanta. I knew I had to take advantage of the snow and get some pictures with it! I included a picture of my doggo Riker here too because he's cute and also very stylish in his red dog coat, don't you think? 

Also, I wanted to wish you all a very happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2018?  The years fly by. 2017 was kind of a shit show for the world, but in general very good for me. Lots of travel, moving into our new place, friends, family, and getting married. I wish you a fantastic year ahead!

So...I Got Married!

If you're still hanging around here and noticed my absence, I blame it on the fact that the entire month of November was wedding and honeymoon mania for me. I'm alive and well (and working on a billion thank you cards.) I've been keeping my Instagram page pretty up-to-date though, so please check that out if you haven't had a chance. I just wanted to share a few wedding pictures with you on the ol' blog and let you know I'm still here!

To give credit where credit is due, my wedding photos were by awesome local photographers Garter + Whiskey. They did an amazing job capturing our big day in Athens, GA.

If you're at all interested, I can share some more pictures with you - maybe some details of the day. But let me know if that would bore you. You'll probably catch a few on my Instagram page throughout the next few months anyway!

I can't stop looking through our pictures though and I'm anticipating our wedding video too. The day wasn't 100% perfect (my veil fell off when I got to the end of the aisle; it was unexpectedly cold outside) but it was a ton of fun. I loved having so many friends and family members in one place and was happy a ton of people stayed the whole time to dance and party. Matt and I also wrote our own vows so I'd been really looking forward to finally hearing Matt's. They were as perfect as I could have imagined. Also, we looked just about the best we could possibly look that day!

A little about our wedding outfits: Matt's suit was rented from The Black Tux, which I highly recommend. The bow tie is his own by The Tie Bar. My trumpet style, off-the-shoulder lace dress is by Pronovias and was tailored just perfectly. My shoes, which I can show you later, are Irregular Choice. Then I changed into wedge Converse half-way through the reception. My silk flower bouquet is handmade by my mom and now it's sitting in my apartment because it'll live forever!

As always, thanks for sticking around. I'll be back here with an actual outfit post soon! Please let me know what you'd like to see here in the year ahead since I'm done wedding planning and can have a life again. Happy Tuesday!

Dragon Con 2017: Spider-Gwen Cosplay

Spider-gwen cosplay for dragon con 2017

Happy Halloween to you! This isn't exactly a Halloween costume, but it's still a costume so I figured I'd share with you on this most glorious of holidays. These pictures are from Dragon Con where I wore my Spider-Gwen costume with real blonde hair this time. I've got to tell you: Wearing a costume minus a wig is so much more comfortable it's insane. Plus, at least with this costume, I think it looks much better than the year before! A couple people told me I was the best Spider-Gwen they'd seen! I give credit to the hair.

So how have you all been this past month or so? I haven't had such a huge break from blogging ever but I guess I've never planned a wedding before either so I'll make that my excuse. The wedding is 11 days away and I can't wait for it to both happen and for the planning to be officially over. Make sure you're following on Instagram here to see upcoming wedding stuff!

Happy Halloween!

Outfit: Red Mini Skirt, Blue Ringer Tee and Navy Blue Clogs

Navy Blue and Red Outfit. Wearing Blue Clogs and a Red Mini Skirt

Red and blue is probably my favorite color combination to wear - especially in the summertime. (Have I said that here before? Probably 10,000 times by now.) And sometimes I like to be as matchy-matchy as possible, which is where this outfit came from. I wore this about a month ago but it's still warm enough to wear it here in Georgia! 

Some outfit details: My mini skirt is an old old thrift find that Mom hemmed for me long ago. I need to wear it more often but it's a bit too short for the workplace! The top was a cheapo crop top I probably bought on clearance and my shoes are my new favorites from Target. I should've gotten them in all the colors but figured I'd get plenty of use out of navy blue - my favorite "non neutral neutral."

I wish I had time to blog more often but time is limited when you're planning a wedding and it's less than 2 months away! I'm very excited to get married and for the wedding to happen, but whoever decided wedding planning was some fun thing is insane. I guess if I didn't work and had plenty of time to browse through Pinterest and gather ideas and daydream about everything it would be a nicer process. Unfortunately it's more like spreadsheets, putting lots of calendar reminders in my phone, writing checks, and making decisions without knowing for sure they'll be the right ones. Then I feel sad that I'm not enjoying the planning because I'm "supposed to" and I'll only get to do this once. 

Plus on top of the wedding planning, our honeymoon is ruined because of the hurricanes. We were supposed to go to Puerto Rico, which took a ton of time to decide on in the first place, and now we have to scramble to find something else 50ish days out. It's awful seeing what happened to Puerto Rico. I really hope the island can recover quicker than the 4 - 6 months I keep hearing just to get electricity restored. The world is crazy right now. And life is too. 

But you can see all that on Instagram if you're interested and I look forward to giving you another update (and outfit) in the next week or two!
