Fashion: Summer Swing Dress

DETAILS | Dress / Sandals (similar) / Cross Body Purse / Jean Jacket / Hat (similar)

Like I mentioned a few weeks ago, Rent the Runway is my new obsession. I ordered this dress as my backup dress in a past order, but it was so cute I ended up wearing it for Father's Day! The cute neckline, flowy skirt and fun pattern were all I needed to want to keep this baby forever. You can easily dress this look up with some wedges and sparkly bracelets, but I chose to dress it down with sandals, a denim jacket and a sun hat (which, by the way, is my favorite thing. Cheap, adorable, and is so great for days on the beach...or tanning in the backyard!)

Have you tried RTR for an event yet? I'm so hooked :)

Thanks for bearing with me as I get back into the swing of things after my brother's wedding! It's been a whirlwind of a few weeks-- with their wedding, then planning details for ours, our poor dog tore her second ACL and needs surgery, and traveling back to Michigan, it's been crazy to say the least. Hopefully things will be back to normal around here next week!

Happy Thursday!

Home Tour: Coastal Beach House

With all the events coming up in my family this year, I could really use a beach house getaway! When I stumbled upon this coastal home in Florida, I knew I had to share because...everything ;) That massive screened porch, white kitchen, shiplap, cozy living room and totally serene master bedroom had me from the start. Take a look!

Isn't it lovely? Who wants to move in with me?!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Fashion: Coral Lace Dress

It's been a crazy world of weddings over here! As you know, I'm getting married in September, but you may not know my younger brother is getting married on FRIDAY! I'm so excited! Last weekend was my soon to be sister-in-law's bridal shower and we had the best time. It was at a beautiful country club golf course, so I decided to Rent the Runway for the first time!!

Have you heard of RTR? You just head to the website, search for a dress you love for your occasion and then you get to rent the dress for a fraction of the retail price! This dress retails for $328 but you can rent it for $50. I call that a good deal :)

DETAILSDress / Shoes / Bracelet / Clutch

We had such a fun day celebrating my brother's fiancé and I thought this was a great dress for the occasion! A sweet picture of my mom, Amy and I at the shower:

Be sure to try out Rent the Runway, I promise it's amazing! So easy and a great way to extend your wardrobe on the cheap. You can get $30 off your first order by clicking here!

Happy Tuesday!

Apartment Decor Update

It's been a few weeks since I moved into my new apartment, so I thought I'd give you an update on the progress we've made moving things in and decorating! Here's the apartment before any of our stuff was in.

Here is is now, a few weeks after moving in. We're making good progress! Mostly everything is in and up on the walls, but we might make a few changes in the coming months in order to make it feel more masculine once we're married :)

Here's a corner of the kitchen. I love the backsplash! 

The living room:

My fiancé's favorite part of the apartment: the TV he mounted and hid the cords for in the wall & his record player!

The perfect mirror I found at HomeGoods!

Can't wait to show you more! We are getting our barstools this next week and want to find a new desk, install some floating shelves and eventually get our wedding pics framed for either side of the TV. 

Happy Monday!
