Modern Romance

Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books and I love the movie adaptation with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen. When I saw this whimsical dress by Jonathan Simkhai, I imagined this would be the type of dress a modern day Elizabeth Bennet would wear. It’s hard for me to pick my favorite design element on this darling dress. I love the hourglass fit, the puffy sleeves, the asymmetric ruffled hem, and the cute little buttons that decorate the bodice. What also made this photo session romantic is the blooming tree and falling petals in the background. To style this dress, I added a neutral sandal and my beloved tea rose purse from Coach.

As always, thanks for reading!

Oh, Baby!

Hi everyone!  It’s been a while.  Took some time off to focus on other aspects of my life. So many things have changed since my last blog post.  We are having a BABY!  I am so excited, but to be honest, a little nervous.  I wanted to share pictures from my amazing tea party themed baby shower.  It was organized by my wonderful mother-in-law and sister-in-law at the CakeBakeShop in Indianapolis.  I’ll be keeping you all posted on my pregnancy journey, what worked for me, and what I’ve learned so far.

Thanks for reading!
