My Fav Things To Do With My Fiancé

Quality time is definitely one of my love languages, & it’s safe to say that I love spending time with my fiancé. I never get tired of being with him, & good thing since we are promising our forevers to each other in less than 80 days! This fiancé season has been so special to me. I’ve loved continually growing closer & dreaming of what our future together will look like. He is my best friend, & whether we are out on the town, or watching Netflix at home, we always have a good time as long as we are together.

Pizza Parties

One of our favorite things to do together is have a good ole pizza party. We love a classic pepperoni pizza with cheesy breadsticks if getting delivery, or our newest frozen pizza from Kroger is the White Chicken Pizza. So good! We fill our plates, grab our drink of choice (mine: any fruit juice with Prosecco, his: a tall glass of Cabernet Sauvignon), & head to the couch to watch our show. Right now, we are on the 5th season of The Blacklist & would highly recommend watching this if you haven’t. This is one of the best shows we’ve ever watched. Another show we both really loved is White Collar. I mean who doesn’t love Matt Bomer?! We are always on the hunt for another show to start watching, so if you have any recommendations for us, leave them in the comments below!

Dancing Together

Ben & I met while we were dancing professionally with the Richmond Ballet, so it’s only natural that one of our favorite things to do together is dance. We love dancing together at weddings & events, but we even dance at home on the daily. Sometimes, we will put on our favorite Frank Sinatra record (the one with our song for our first dance at our wedding), & slow dance in the living room. Honestly though, most of our dancing is the fun, silly kind that just makes us laugh. We do love to laugh. I know that dancing will always be a special part of our home & our family.

Spending Time Outdoors

Now that the weather is finally getting warmer, we love spending time together outdoors. We both love working in the gardens together & seeing our plants grow & thrive with each new season. Some of our favorites we’ve planted include hydrangeas, pink peonies, snapdragons, & a quickly growing crape myrtle tree. We love being able to clip fresh flowers & bring them inside.

When the weather is nice, we love to cook out & sit by a bonfire in our homemade fire pit. There is something that is so mesmerizing about a fire. I find that it always brings about the best topics of conversation as well.

We also love to take our cute puppy, Luna, on nature walks. Richmond is just so beautiful & covered with trees,plants, & rivers that she loves to explore. I never thought I would be such a dog lover, but this little lady has totally stolen my heart. We love having her in our little family.

Being Us

Every couple has their quirks. Those things that are most personal & therefore extra special to you as a couple. We love to sing with each other, not because we think we are good (because we’re not), but either to laugh or to remember a memory tied to a song. Ben is also a genius when it comes to nicknames. I’m getting quite good at it now that I’ve been with him for a while, but hearing the most creative things come out of his mouth just amazes me. Whether he is coming up with a new nickname for me, our pets, or any random household object, it’s sure to make me smile every day.

Above everything else, we love to support each other. We are partners, dreamers, hand holders, & fighters through & through. I love being his fiancé, but I can’t wait to be his wife!

My 2018 Lookbook

Wishing For Spring

Top (sold out- similar here, affordable option here) / Skirt ($13!!) / Shoes ($15!!) / Bag (old, similar here, affordable option here) / Lipstick (shade 02)

Hello Everyone!

The weather is slowing starting to warm up here in Richmond, & florals seem to be the only things I am in the mood to wear. I put this outfit together, & fell in love with it’s effortless, feminine look. The bow details, pops of floral, & the overall silhouette of this look give me the feeling of springs mornings in a coffee shop.

Looking forward & wishing for spring, pops of florals are a must in my wardrobe. Whether it’s a fun top like this one, a floral dress, or a hint of florals on my shoes or handbag, having fun & feminine pieces in my wardrobe make a big impact when putting together spring outfits.

Florals become an easy addition to your wardrobe when you have the right neutrals to pair them with. A neutral, everyday skirt (not an evening skirt), is a key item you will want to have this spring. Also, adding a navy cropped blazer to your wardrobe like this very affordable one (seen here), can really help bring a whole outfit together. It can easily be thrown over almost any floral top or dress & adds a bit of structure to a flowy, floral look.

F&F Guide To Fall Accessories

Fall Accessories

Hello Everyone!

I’m going to keep this intro short so we can get to the good stuff! Today we are talking about the best accessories to have in your wardrobe this season. From shoes to scarves to berets, this post covers it all! Let’s dive right in!

Boots, Loafers, & Ballerinas

Fall Accessories

I feel like this could be a whole post on it’s own! Fun fall shoes are a great way to accessorize an outfit.

I’ve always loved a good pair of ballerinas, & this year, I found the absolute best pair for under $13! They are so easy, & comfortable to wear, making them a lovely choice for an everyday outfit. It doesn’t hurt that I always feel Parisian chic while wearing them.

Loafers just scream fall to me. I love how on trend they are this year & all the different colors & styles available right now. In my collection, I have a classic brown pair, a black studded pair, a pink pair, a nude pair, a metallic silver pair, & a leather khaki colored pair. I’ve been eyeing these cream ones as well as these gorgeous neutral beige ones to round out my collection. They go with everything, & the slightly masculine feel of them just works this time of year.

Boots are always a must, & this season, I’ve finally added a pair of over the knee boots to my wardrobe. Julia, of Gal Meets Glam, has totally inspired me by showing that they can be very feminine & tasteful. Not to mention they really help you stay warm! Other boots in my collection include brown heeled boots, a pair of blue velvet ankle boots, & my duck boots. I have 3 others on my current wishlist: 1 / 2 / 3

Scarves

Fall Accessories

This goes unsaid, because everyone knows that scarves are a great way to accessorize a fall outfit. Whether it’s a small silk scarf, or a big blanket scarf, sometimes it’s not just that you are wearing it, it’s how you are wearing it. I have recently been so inspired by this post explaining 8 Ways To Wear A Scarf. It’s important to have a variety of styles in your collection to mix things up. Try adding different patterns, colors, & textures to your current collection. Also, make sure to take into account what coats you own to be sure your scarves will pair well with them. For example, I have a new check coat this season, so instead of getting all plaid scarves, I made sure to get a couple solid scarves with beautiful bold colors like this one & this one.

I’ve also been totally obsessing over the small Parisian scarves delicately tied around the neck. (last seen here) They have been all over my Instagram, seeing as though I can’t stop wearing them! In my current collection, I own a small one in blue, as well as a neutral cream colored one. See below for all the others currently on my wishlist. *swoon*

Vests

Fall Accessories

Vests are definitely a new love for me. I feel like I’ve just gotten the hang of styling them in a way I’m pleased with. They were always tricky for me, & never looked like I wanted them to while wearing one. For me, I think having the right pieces to go with them has really made the difference. The vest featured above has a small chevron pattern in the quilting, so pairing it with this solid, fall toned dress (which is on sale now btw for only $35!!) was a perfect match. I also have a burgundy vest (seen here) that was just meant to be paired with a navy cable knit sweater. Of course, they can go with other pieces in my wardrobe too, but those are a few of my favorites. (If you’d like to see other ways I style vests this time of year, let me know in the comments below.)

Purses

Fall Accessories

I have been really into crossbody purses as of late, & I have certain things I look for when choosing one to add to my collection. First, I look for color. This season, I’m all about my burgundy, navy, camel, & dark green. Then I look for structure & shape. I love it when I can fit my small camera inside my purse & plenty of lipsticks (what else would I need?…). Typically, I go for a gold chain strap with some sort of fold over top.


Fur

Fall Accessories

I have really gotten into faux furs over the past few years. They just add that instant glam & sophistication to an outfit that I absolutely live for. You can find them in so many colors making them work well with any outfit & any color coat in your collection. My navy fur scarf is definitely my most worn, but I just added this red number to my wardrobe which I can’t wait to wear with my check coat! The best thing about them is that they actually provide warmth as well! Check out all of the others I’m lusting over below!

Berets

Fall Accessories

Ah, a beret…my most Parisian accessory. There are so many gorgeous berets available right now, & it’s hard to stop adding them to my collection. I know own a camel colored one & a burgundy one, & they just do wonders for an outfit. They even work when you’re having a bad hair day! Just throw one on, & you instantly look put together & complete. These are a definite must in my fall wardrobe.
