How To Pick Your Wedding Colors!

When planning my wedding, I knew I wanted the colors of blush & gold. I felt these two colors were both on trend, as well as timeless. For many brides, deciding on what your wedding colors should be can be a daunting task. Here are a few of my tips that should help make the choice a little bit easier.

  • Pick a dark and light combination: You want your wedding colors to be complimentary as well as contrasting. An easy way to do this is by picking a dark base color, and accenting it with your lighter color choice._mg_8230
  • Consider your season, but don’t let that limit you: I chose blush as one of my colors, which is typically a spring or summer color. But I got married in the fall. While it can be smart or convenient to select you colors based on the season you get married in, don’t let that limit your choices. I had my heart set on the blush color, oranges and burgundies just weren’t my thing. :
  • Use Pinterest as inspiration & direction: When you are picking linens, charger plates, flowers, and other items that involve your colors, it can get overwhelming. I highly recommend using Pinterest to hon your ideas. It will give you some direction, as well as specific pictures to show your vendors.
  • Make sure you have a base color: The base color of your palette needs to be a neutral. White, cream, or even black are great bases to keep your colors in check. Our wedding featured a lot of white in the background of the color scheme. This will help keep your colors from overwhelming your beautiful day. :

I hope these tips will help you when picking out your wedding colors! Comment below with your wedding day color scheme!

New Obsession: Henri Bendel Bags!

I happened upon Henri Bendel purses accidentally. I’d never really heard of them before, and am rather bummed it took me this long to discover them. Since my fiancé and I will be traveling in a few months for our honeymoon, I wanted to get a purse that was both versatile & cute. Insert the Henri Bendel Jetsetter Mini Convertible Backpack


This little beauty can be worn three different ways (purse, cross body, or backpack) and is water resistant. While it comes in a larger size, I thought my petite frame would look better with the mini. So glad I chose it! The colors are stunning and it looks so high-end. I paid about $180 for it (this included the site discount and a 20% off coupon for joining the email list). Totally worth it! This will make traveling so fun and luxurious! 

On a side note, Henri Bendel constantly has sales, so keep on the lookout. Also, the colors of the bags change all the time. If you see one you love, be sure to purchase it ASAP!

Oh Joy! For Target!

Oh Joy! For Target!

 

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Target collaborations are something I have been tracking for years. On occasion I miss a few here & there, whether from lack of interest or lack of attention. On a recent trip to Target, I noticed some adorable items from a collection called Oh Joy! This collection is a collaboration with blogger and designer Joy Cho. Since pink & gold are a staple in this collaboration, I was hooked! Granted it’s meant for a nursery, but on their own these items are fabulous! I particularly like the heart ottoman & flower framed picture. Most of these items are still available at Target, in store & online.

Comment below if you bought any of these items!

A Glamorous Weekend!

A Glamorous Weekend! by lovely2298 on Polyvore featuring Olivia von Halle, UGG Australia, Kobelli, Oliver Goldsmith, Christian Dior and Kate Spade:

The weekend is finally here, & I couldn’t be happier! Over the past week I have been slowly moving into my apartment. Let me tell you, I do not plan on moving again anytime soon. That’s how fun it was packing and unpacking. lol. But I couldn’t be happier with my beautiful place, & I will have some pictures & styling tips coming in the near future. Until then, I am without internet or television. I thought I could live without that for a little bit, but it’s getting tiresome. Especially with college work being due each week. This weekend I’m going to remedy that problem, & I’ll be back to blogging in no time!

Now, when the weekend comes around, I love relaxing & enjoying girlie things! This could include anything from candles, to a favorite movie, to staying in my pajamas the whole time. I recommend anything that makes you feel glamorous & fabulous!

Comment below with what your glam plans are for the weekend! ❤
