Fall Wedding Guest Dress/Bridesmaid's Dress

Monday, October 15, 2018

Happy Monday!

The other day I shared a post about how you can wear a romper to a fall wedding.

If you missed it, you can read it here: Can You Wear A Romper To A Fall Wedding?

In that post I also mentioned that I love wearing dresses to fall weddings. Depending on where you are and what your weather is like, you could wear a midi or maxi dress. While I was looking around at the Town Center the other day, I stumbled upon this beautiful purple Marionette Maxi Dress from Altar'd State. Anytime I'm looking for something very classy and beautiful, I always go to Altar'd State. Their dress collection is always stunning and they have a great selection of mini, midi, and maxi dress lengths. Their website only has a few colors of this dress but in store you can find a few more like the one featured below.

Happy Friday!

So, I've always been known for either very corny or down right horrible jokes (in everyone else's opinion ha!). However, I think I've finally come up with an awesome one that should be shared world wide. Some may call it a dad joke, others may call it genius. I like to think it's both. Here is goes:

Can You Wear A Romper To A Fall Wedding?

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Happy Wednesday!

Have you received a handful of fall wedding invitations recently and are already thinking: "what am I going to wear?". When I think of fall wedding guest attire, I usually think of a dark color dress that usually has some lace, or is midi/maxi in length. This is of course dependent on the the wedding's theme or specific dress code (if there is one). 

I never considered wearing a romper to a fall wedding, until I saw this American Eagle Long Sleeve Lace Romper. This romper literally has everything I just described in my ideal dress, but in romper form!

Saddlebox Review

Monday, October 8, 2018

Happy Monday!

Who else loves subscription boxes? Some of my favorites out there include Fabfitfun and Barkbox! I'm on a budget, so if I get a subscription box it's because I truly believe what comes with it is valuable and is worth the monthly cost. I recently discovered a horse subscription box (that's right horse lovers!) called SaddleBox

SaddleBox is a monthly subscription box for horse owners that includes treats, grooming products, tack, and more! When you sign up for SaddleBox, your first box ships immediately and then all future boxes ship out on the 15th of every month! Plus, shipping is free, which we all love that!

Below is a breakdown of everything that I received in my SaddleBox.

Happy Friday!

Another busy week done! Can anyone else believe it is October? I still feel like it was June two days ago. It is still pretty warm down here in Florida, but the temperatures are starting to cool off (finally!). I live in north Florida which means it actually gets cooler here compared to say central and south Florida. The low's are finally starting to get into the 70's and the high's are not in the 90's anymore. It feels like 90 some days because of the humidity but it's better than being 95 out plus the humidity making it feel like the 100's!

If i had to pick my favorite moment of this week (so far) it would definitely be yesterday. Yesterday I cantered without reins for the first time and I did my first lead change! Of course I'm not a pro yet, but every time I learn something new it's so exciting. All I want to do is improve every time I go out there!

How To Dress For Fall When It Feels Like Summer

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Happy Tuesday!

While it's starting to cool down in many places, it's still pretty hot here in Florida and a few other states. If you're living in one of those hotter states like me, it almost feels like it's impossible to dress for fall...until now! Today's blog post is about how you can dress for fall when it still feels like summer.

The Happy Grilled Cheese Restaurant Jacksonville, FL

Monday, October 1, 2018

Happy Monday!

This may sound cheesy, but I think you're grate. Sorry, I couldn't resist! Today's blog post features the BEST food truck in Jacksonville, FL in my opinion: The Happy Grilled Cheese! I love supporting local businesses because they are usually some of the most unique and creative restaurants, boutiques, etc. out there!

The Happy Grilled Cheese food truck has been around for five and a half years and they were within the first 10-15 food trucks to open in Jacksonville. They opened a restaurant a year ago in downtown Jacksonville and have loved all of the support they have gotten since their opening. The restaurant is open Monday-Friday from 11am-3pm and if you're wanting to find where their food truck is, they post their schedule weekly on their social media!
