My brother got married last month in a small backyard ceremony. He had originally planned a larger event at a venue but he and his wife decided to postpone that until next year and do an intimate event at our parent's house this year. It was our immediate family, the wedding party, a couple of his friends and my Grandparents (which I was a little weary of.)

I've felt weird about posting this outfit because of current circumstances, but it has been over a month and no one in attendance got sick so I think we were successful in keeping to current protocols. My Mom made masks out of fancy fabric to match the decor on the tables and we tried to keep to our small bubbles of safety.


I bought this dress in June when I was still in wishful thinking mode that we'd be able to have the real wedding. But I guess the silver lining is I get to wear it again next year! This time I wore it with the Nicholas Kirkwood heels I wore for my own wedding, a necklace handed down to me from my Grandma (which I also wore to my wedding) and my cute pink ostrich Marc Jacobs bag. The bag was pretty much just a prop for these photos since I didn't actually need it.

My best friend got married a couple weekends ago so Christian and I drove the 8 hours down to Virginia to celebrate! The wedding was held at a cidery in Charlottesville. The building looked like a Winter wonderland with string lights on the ceiling and snow covered trees around the hall. There was even a hot chocolate booth so you could make your own drink and one of the favors was ingredients for s'mores (fire pits were lit in the evening!)

Luckily for her, the weather was BEAUTIFUL! It had been rainy/foggy the evening before but on the day it was unseasonably warm and partly cloudy (perfect for outdoor photos.) It only rained a teeny bit during the reception, but everyone was safely inside.

I bought this black Joie dress back in August for a steal ($40) at Marshalls and was waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it. My mom talked me out of wearing it to my cousin's wedding in October because no one wears black to weddings (but they do, haha.) A couple weeks before the wedding I sent my friend a couple dress options and she liked them all so I decided to finally wear this! In anticipation of it being cold I topped it with a teal velvet blazer to add some color and make it dressier.

Dress: Joie 'Johnesha' black polka dot tiered dress (Marshalls, shop more Joie dresses), Velvet Blazer: Darjoni (Good Will, shop more blazers), Heels: Dolce & Gabbana suede Mary Jane Pump (Uptown Consignment, similar pair), Simple Pearl Necklace c/o AURate (shop delicate necklaces), Earrings: Mejuri 'Loop' (designed by my friend Jamie-Lee!),

I went to Disney a week and a half ago to celebrate my 30th birthday and my friend Kristen and I went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. It's an event held a few nights a week from August to October. You get to stay at the park late (the party is from 7pm - midnight and normal guests leave the park at 6) to go Trick-or-Treating, meet with characters for photos and some of the rides have added Halloween fun! There's also a special Hocus Pocus show, Boo To You Halloween Parade and Halloween aka HalloWishes fireworks!

The party was so much fun and totally worth the extra money for a ticket. We got TONS of candy to bring home and enjoy until Halloween. Even if you don't have a theme park ticket for the day, you are able to go in to the parks beginning at 4pm. So this is a cheaper option to get into the park and with less people during the party. But I will say getting into the park around this time will be a mad house of people. But once you're in it's a pleasant amount of people.

With just over a week left until Halloween there's not much time left to figure out your costume! Here's a super easy costume to put together with just a few items. For the party I decided to be one of my favorite characters - Sorcerer Mickey! My Sorcerer Mickey costume couldn't be easier. All I needed was a red dress, gold cord, tights and boots. You'll also want a blue witches hat to put stars, a moon and ears on. I got mine at Disney World ready made.

I wanted my dress to look like Sorcerer Mickey's cape so I found a dress with wider sleeves that fit the bill perfectly. It's on sale for under $10 right now, and I only paid $14, quite the steal! To replicate his pants I just wore blue tights and then my black boots because they are the most comfortable to walk around in. While searching for the boots for this post I FINALLY found my size on Poshmark so I had to buy them again because these are dying after being VERY loved for 4 years. They've been all over the world and walked hundreds (seriously, at least 100) of miles with me. I used ad money that was just added to my PayPal. So perfect!

Red Dress: ASOS, Belt: Gold Metallic Twisted Cord, Boots: Vince Camuto 'Davilla' (Marshalls), Sorcerer Mickey Ear Hat from Disney, Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika', Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon), Bag: Dooney & Bourke 2017 Sorcerer Mickey Disney Shopper Tote (eBay)

And some more photos from the party.

Continuing with the dresses theme from yesterday, let's discuss what to wear to a wedding.  My cousin is getting married and while I already have my dress I thought it would be fun to show you guys some outfits for various wedding scenarios. You can get all of these dresses online by Review Australia.

Review has many dress options available so everyone can find a piece perfect for any occasion. Whether you need a casual slip dress, knit, maxi or even a lace dress, they have you covered! Their prices are reasonable and range from $50 (on sale) to $319.99 (not on sale) so you're sure to find a piece within your budget.

Review Australia is perfect for the girl who loves fun, feminine and flirty fashion. They have been in business since 1985, so they know what will look good on a woman, definitely a plus when you're looking for a well-made, well-fitting piece.

I'm always a fan of classic pieces with a twist and that's exactly what Review offers. Whether it's an adorable added belt or an interesting seam, almost all the dresses have something to surprise.

Our first look features this Donatella Dress, one of their new arrivals and my favorite piece. This would be a lovely choice for a dressy, night-time wedding. Th dark floral, short sleeves and fabric belt make it a really unique piece that's sure to stun everyone.

Next up we have this beautiful maxi dress which we can dress up or down. I've created a look that you can wear for a nice outdoor/beach wedding. Pair it with a cardigan and some dressy flat sandals and you have the perfect outfit.

 These are just two options for wedding looks. With over 100 dresses to choose from, you can come up with an outfit for any of your upcoming Summer weddings!  Make sure to check out all the other pieces they have to offer to help complete your look.  Both pieces of outerwear featured above are also from Review.
