Wedding plans at Pride Rock are moving along quite nicely. This is in large part due to Mama D and her graciously helping out with phone calls and appointments, but I do have to say that The Mayflower is the world’s best venue and they make things pretty easy with their super inclusive package. Our wedding cake from Fluffy Thoughts is actually included!

So on Saturday, Mama and Daddy D met us at their darling little location in Virginia for a tasting and to talk design. We picked out 4 flavors ahead of time and tasted them all with a combination of fillings and icing. The cakes were basically deconstructed so tried a bit of this and that and came up with something all our own. It was super fun and I don’t think we could have gone wrong with any of the choices.

I like to get a little dressed up any time I do anything for this wedding. I wanted an outfit that could take me from the tasting to dinner and a comedy show in the evening and I’ve been looking for a reason to wear this sweater/ vest combo. Once again, something my mom picked up on her travels. The vest is SO cozy.

Funny story about the flats. Kristyn had them way before me and I’ve had my eye on them since. I snagged them for 50% off during a recent sale. But then, somehow, they got delivered to the building down the block from me. Before I knew this, I contacted Ann Taylor to let them know the tracking said delivered but they never showed up. They refunded me. I felt so guilty when I tracked them down that I actually let them know, but they never took the money back. SO I got them for free, with a free conscious to boot.

I have this thing with leopard. Pretty sure that mostly comes from not being allowed to wear it as a little kid. Mathy has come around and even rocks it herself occasionally, but to me its essentially a neutral for dressing up or down or sideways or whatever. My one rule is one leopard piece per outfit.

This rule is allowed to be broken if you’re a fabulous little old lady at church in which case pile it on and I cannot wait to be you one day. This is not something I’m making up. There’s a couple of women at St. John’s Lafayette who dress all the way up for church. I’m talking head to toe leopard with matching hat and gloves. And then they sneak out after communion and I like to imagine they go have a boozy brunch and flirt with cute waiters… but I digress.

Today I’m bringing you the ultimate extra skirt, styled two ways. I like to think of the first as “brunch” and the second as “New Year’s Eve” but to be honest you could call them “girls’ night” and “date night” or any title you want. Basically, one is more casual and the other more dressed up.

And I’m thinking about this skirt for my semi-Lisa Frank themed bachelorette part in February. Either that or a neon tutu- thoughts?

I didn’t even realize that we’d hit September until late Friday night, but isn’t it kind of cool how as soon as September hit, so did some fall weather? I’m not going to be fooled- I know we’ll probably have a few more summery days before fall actually hits later this month, but it’s o much fun to start thinkin’ boots and sweaters and all. pumpkin. everything.

September is going to be a super fun month. Kendall and I are road-tripping down to Charleston, NC for a wedding and stopping to see family in Myrtle Beach on the way down and back. Then the following week, I’m going on my annual girls trip to Chowderfest on Long Beach Island, NJ. I just want to buy Tiffany and I all matching outfits and wear our boots and tromp around eating seafood for a weekend. It’s going to be great!

What do you have planned for September?

I’m no stranger to animal print, and I think I want to add a leopard clutch + leopard booties to my arsenal of accessories. Actually, lets throw in a leopard puffer vest too! Not to wear together. I’m not that crazy.

Homegirl was literally just gluing her makeup brushes back together this weekend. Perhaps I need a new set that matches my cute pink, black, and white bathroom?

I keep saying I want another pair of loafers since I have just about worn through my gold Coach pair and I’m considering getting a pink pair just because pink isn’t a traditionally fall color BUT WHY CAN’T IT BE?

This is a purse shaped like a PSL. That is all.

Speaking of PSL- my future Sissy in law and I are getting matching basic fall extravaganza sweatshirts.

I’m also really, really wanting a monogram sherpa situation. How cozy, amiright?

I haven’t found a pair of nude heeled boots that fit my foot right, so I might try the Via Spiga Beckett Tall Boot.

Remember last week or whenever how it got nice? And then it freaking SNOWED at the end of the week? And it wasn’t even nice snow it was gobs of slush. Gross. I was so ready for the week to end already and that was just the ice(ing) on the cake.

Anyway, I guessss it’s ok because it gave me a chance (maybe my last one of the season) to rock my Topshop from Nordstrom leopard fur coat (last seen here). I wanted to be both cozy and cute as I slid into the weekend and I think I got this.

Now, let’s talk weekend essentials. You know I love a good backpack, but the one I got last year was a little small. Hi gorgeous Eddie Borgo for Target Backpack in Thunder. The backpack so nice that my mom bought me the same one. And if you’re constantly on the go like me, you probably have a snack or two in your bag. When Myprotein asked if I could try some of their products, I jumped at the chance. I ordered Protein Cookies in white almond, Protein Chox in caramel nut, and their 100% peanuts peanut butter. I’ll be honest, the cookies were a little too almond-y for me, it was almost overpowering. And I could really taste whatever extra protein was in it. But the chox were great! They taste like a heartier snickers and are definitely better for your if you’re like me and have a 3:30 in the afternoon chocolate craving. The peanut butter? On apples, one of my favorite snacks/ deserts.

How do you get ready for the weekend?

I was born the day before St. Patrick’s Day, so I’ve combined the two holidays since I can remember. It started with green glittery sprinkled shamrock cookies for my birthday snack in grade school and evolved into (for the past couple of years) sharing a hat at The Madhatter with some close pals on the 17th. This year, I really did attempt to cancel my birthday, which is very unlike me, because I was feeling pretty overwhelmed. But I’m kind of surrounded by a ton of amazing people that wouldn’t let that happen. My parents, my friends- everyone I know has made this month special. I even got to see my favorite band and hang out with them for a bit after the show- that was a present to myself.

Parts of my look today were presents as well. The green dress is from my 21st birthday (edit: no it is not? I def got this dress for my 24th or 25th.) and has obviously become my St. Patrick’s Day dress. The jewelry set from Baublebar was a gift from two of my best friends and the tumbler was from my Little- one of my coworkers calls me kitten and I needed a new tumbler when the lid on my trusty giant mason jar broke. Perfect gift, perfect timing.

Anyway, it’s been a great March, and I’m feeling so lucky.
