OKAY the day is FINALLY here! My wedding photos are here. I was soo excited when I received my pictures. It was almost as good as my wedding day. Getting to see everything from the day of the wedding in photos was amazing because it truly is so hard to take it all in on the day of your wedding. As much as I tried it is truly so hard to get to say hi to every guest and get to dance and eat all at once. A lot of people say they didn’t eat a thing or didn’t dance the entire night of their wedding, and that is something I was absolutely not going to let happen! I ate my entire dinner, I ate at my cocktail hour and I also have never danced so much in my entire life. My legs hurt for a few days after LOL.
Anyway, we had thousands of pictures from the day of and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you guys! Please feel free to email or comment with any question. I will also do a post about the entire planning process at some point if anyone would be interested! I also linked my robe, slip, Bridesmaid robes and dresses below!
With the cold winter months upon us I love to start stocking up on cute layering pieces. I found this amazing faux fur vest for $25 from Amazon Prime and it is surprisingly really great quality. I had seen some other faux fur vests at some other retailers for over $80 and I am so happy I chose this one.
It is a great piece to layer with a flannel and jeans, or it would even be super cute worn over a dress with some boots! It’s such a versatile piece. I chose to pair this vest with some white jeans, a beige sweater and my absolute favorite brown boots. SO I just saw that my boots are ON SALE for 40% off. Guys this is AMAZING they are VERY comfortable and one of the best quality boots I have ever purchased. I have been wearing them almost every day. I ended up purchasing another pair of Marc Fisher booties in black as well because my brown ones were so comfortable.
My Topshop Jeans are also on sale for $35- another great deal. I also am not a believer in the only white in Summer rule. If you pair white jeans with the right outfit I think they look great all year long!
I will link my vest and the rest of my outfits details below!
I wanted to share a few of my absolute favorite items with you and a few items that are on my holiday wish list this year! I love asking for useful items that I am going to use for many years or items that I am going to be using on a very regular basis. I have linked a few items for you guys below!
1.) Silk Slip Pillowcase – I have heard nothing but amazing things about this pillow case. I currently do have a silk pillowcase from Amazon and I do like it but I find that I continuously have to get a new one and it’s only silk on one side. This pillowcase is 100% silk inside and out and is highly recommended by doctors, hair dressers and beauty experts alike. It is good for anti aging and for your hair. It is described as an 8 hour beauty treatment for you every night so this is definately on my wish list this year!
2.) Ugg Robe– My parents got me this robe for Christmas last year and I literally wear it all year round. It is soon soft and cozy and I look forward to putting it on everyday LOL. It is a little expensive for a robe BUT I promise you will get soon much use out of it and will not be disappointed.
3.) Sorel Snow Boots– These are on my Christmas list this year! I have been seeing these Sorel boots for years now and I didn’t think I had a need for them until these last few years with all the snow we have been getting in NJ. My Hunter rain boots are just not cutting it for the snow anymore.
4.) Tory Burch Flats– I wear these flats almost everyday to work and they are so comfy. I have never really been a huge fan of flats because I have always found them to be pretty uncomfortable. These flats will mold to your feet after wearing them a few times- I didn’t believe this at first but I can tell you first hand they absolutely do and I have multiple pairs of these now.
5.)Gucci Marmot Sandals– I have been wanting these since I saw them in the Gucci store in NYC last year but couldn’t get myself to spend this much on sandals. This would make a great gift and they match with so much. I am obviously thinking of warmer days looking at these sandals!
6.) Calpak Roller Luggage– This was another Item I received as a gift for Christmas last year. My Husband and I were gifts the Rose Gold and Black luggage sets and I must say they have held up really well. We took a decent amount of flights this year and although the luggage did get a little dirty, well my rose gold luggage not so much the black bags, they held up extremely well and are large enough to fit everything you need. It’s such a useful gift and something that anyone can use for years!
I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits with you from Express since they are one of the stores who started their Black Friday Deals a little early. This outfit is one that can double as something I can wear to the office and something I can wear on the weekend! I love getting the most out of my clothes and being able to dress an outfit up or down depending on where I am going. I found the cutest (and most comfortable) leggings the other day and thought they would be so cute to wear with a dark green sweater for the holiday season!
I paired my leggings and sweater with my Rockstud Valentino Pumps, but this outfit can easily be paired with some black booties or flats and can be worn to work and dressed down a bit. I love Express so much because I find a lot of their clothing to be super versatile and very affordable, especially when they have a sale like they are this week at 50% off! I have found items that I can wear to work as well as items that I can lounge around the house in at Express and the quality (and price!) never disappoints. Be sure to check out their black Friday deals they have one of the best Black Friday Promos of the year from my past experience with them and this is definitely a store that is worth shopping at on Black Friday!
Express also has so many other cute items that you should jump on ASAP! The Teddy Bear sweatshirts are soo amazing and make a great gift. They sell out really fast too so I always try to get these items early on in the holiday season. I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving with their families and eats lots of yummy food! I think its of of the few days calories don’t count right?! LOL
Sorry I have been MIA all week I had a few things to take care of but we are back in action now! We had our first snow storm of the year a few days ago (pretty early for NJ!) and it was a pretty messy storm! It took people literally HOURS to get home from work or wherever they were coming from that day since the storm started right around the rush hour commute time and rush hour in NJ/NY is already pretty scary when there isn’t snow.
Anyway- since the cold weather is here sooner than expected I thought I would share my super cozy winter weather outfit with you guys. Its soo warm and its an easy outfit to just throw on, especially during those days that you just don’t want to get out of bed or even get dressed. I will post some pictures below as well as link everything that I am wearing. Hope everyone stays warm!
The perfect way to start off the week is with this faux leather snake print mini skirt. It’s so different and I love it paired with a simple black bodysuit and I was even thinking about pairing it with a red sweater. This would be a perfect Holiday Party outfit when paired with a red sweater. I also am loving over the knee boots lately and I think they really lengthen the look of your legs. I am 5’3 so I’m pretty petite and I haven’t had any issues with boots being too tall. These Steve Madden ones are such a great find they feel designer at a quarter of the price! Its hard to come across a pair of quality boots that are at this price point. Another thing I really loved about these ones is there is a zipper so they are way easier to get on then some boots I own that you literally need someone to help pull them off LOL.
Hope everyone has an amazing Monday and an even better week! As always I would love to hear from anyone so please feel free to comment or send me an email! I will like all outfit details below.
