THE BRIDAL SHOWER

The-Bridal-Shower

The bridal shower is an occasion to be celebrated – usually, female members of the bride and grooms family (along with close friends!) come to celebrate the bride and “shower” her with gifts to help her stock her new home. Not to be mistaken with the bachelorette party, this event calls for attire that is slightly more pretty and demure (but I didn’t say boring!). This outfit above makes my heart flutter – the lace keeps it feminine and girly, yet shows just enough skin – pair these with simple accessories for the perfect bridal shower look.

LITTLE FLOWER GIRL

Little-Flower-Girl

My little girl was recently asked to be a flower girl in her very first wedding, and we’ve been lucky enough to be able to pick out her dress! I’ve been searching and searching for the perfect little outfit for her to walk down the aisle in; if you are also in the market for a dress for your flower girl, here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for the youngest person in your wedding party:

  1. The Flower Girl Dress is traditionally a mini version of the brides white dress, or a white dress with a sash that compliments the bridesmaid dresses. But you don’t have to follow these rules! As long as the dress matches the mood of the wedding (beach wedding, or countryside wedding) – you’re going to be okay.
  2. Make sure the dress is comfortable! Young children typically don’t hold up well if they are clothed in anything too warm or itchy – that will just make them cranky and less agreeable on your big day! Think about aesthetics, but don’t forget about comfort, too!
  3. Make them feel special! My favorite memories of being a flowergirl myself were those moments when the bride let me watch her put on makeup, or made sure that I was involved with even the little things. A happy child, is a better flowergirl!

SHEER MADNESS

Sheer-Madness

As the winter heat relentlessly beats down on Southern California, (not complaining at all!) I’ve started to lighten up my beauty and wardrobe in anticipation of the even hotter spring season. Sometimes you just want to look like you rolled out of bed looking just that way, with no help at all. But sshhh, no one has to know – here are a few of my favorite sheer picks, just for you.

01: This nail polish gives your natural nail color a subtle pink boost, without anyone knowing the better. 02: Sheer underthings? Yes please, enough said. 03:  Complexion Rescue by Bare Minerals is a sheer, gel cream which gives your skin a quick boost of moisture and coverage, without your skin looking too caked on. 04: This beautiful sheer glass water bottle is a great way to transport hydration, which keeps skin glowing. 05: Clinique Chubby Stick is a tinted lip balm which kind of makes you look like you have summer, Popsicle stained lips. Mmm.
