New York through Now

Sorry for the lack of posting, I thought life would go back to something closer to normal after the wedding, but it has been the opposite of that! But I have a post with lots of stuff today to make it up : )

As previously mentioned, we flew to New York for my sister in law’s wedding that took place on July 21st, and just got back this past Monday. It was a beautiful day, every detail spectacular.

For the rehearsal dinner, I wore a dress I picked up at Express earlier this summer, that came with a belt in the same material, so to mix it up, I took that out and replaced it with a fun skinny green belt.

The wedding day started nice and early, and we were getting our hair done so I decided to give some clip in extensions I had a picked up a shot. They are real hair so you can curl and straighten them, and easy to put in – a fun way to change things up! I got them at Sally’s Beauty Supply for about $130 dollars. See here.

I was in the wedding party so wasn’t able to get a lot of pictures, but I did get this one with the bride and groom! She was radiant!

The morning after the wedding there was a brunch, to which I wore a cute sundress I picked up at Marshall’s for $14.99 – it has little sailboats on it! I paired with my new favorite shoes, a gold wedge I picked up for $20 at Kohl’s.

We finally made it back to Seattle, and for a day of running errands I wore green polka dot shorts that I adore, and paired with a royal blue top – I really like the green and blue combo! I decided to add just the front clips of my extensions for a little extra length in the front where my hair refuses to grow – you will probably be seeing that a lot!

And finally, on Thursday night I was very excited to have my cousin, Tami, in town and staying with us┬áso we went out for a bit! She is coming back with her boyfriend this Friday as well for a longer visit and I can’t wait! (I also made a great dinner on Wednesday night for her, will get that posted sometime soon)

I wore a dress that I was fortunate enough to get handed down to me from my MIL this past trip. It is a gorgeous Michael Kors tank dress with an assymetrical hem. Perfect for a warm summer night out. I added a metallic belt and black wedges. This was the best pic I could get, not sure why my face is so shiny!

Happy Monday, I’ll be back tomorrow!

It looks like you had several days of fun, celebration, and the best outfits to complete the ensemble. I’m sort of crushing on those wedges from Target right now…


Amy – Love the outfits, and we’re glad to have you back. I have to say- your hair and makeup ALWAYS looks perfect. You should consider doing a tutorial. I can never get my bangs to sweep back like your’s do…would love to know the secret!!

    AW, thanks Stefanie! Again, thanks for guest posting. I will see if I can get a tutorial together : )


You look amazing in all of these photos! I love the rehearsal dinner dress from Express. Very cute with the green belt! Those hair extensions look awesome, too!
