A Dress Fit for a Bride

White Midi Dress // Poppy + Sage ‘Piper’ Basket Bag, more Basket Bags Here // Heeled Sandals, More Options Here // Taudrey ‘Simply Pretty’ Choker

Wedding season is in full swing and if you are a bride, I’ve found the dress for you! Being a bride gives you the ultimate excuse to wear white any day and every day if you please, and this is a dress that needs to be in your wedding white rotation!

The moment I tried this dress on, I knew it was perfection. This gorgeous crochet number is a stunner! It has an open lace up back and a midi length that can be dressed up or down. This dress would be perfect for your bridal shower, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner. Not a bride? No worries! This dress is a great contender for your anniversary, but it should also be known that you shouldn’t need an excuse to own and wear a gorgeous white dress! The best part about this dress is the price tag. At under $80 this dress is a complete steal and is the dupe for a much pricier option! Looking for wedding guest attire? Check out my post here!

I have rounded up a few more of my current favorite white dresses…check them out below!

Becoming the Garza’s: First Look & Bridal Party

Sharing our second batch of wedding photos today (see getting ready photos here)…the first look and some of our bridal party! 

We got married in our home town at the beautiful venue, Hampton Hideaway. Tucked away in the mountains, it had the orchard trees and open space that I always craved, along with my reception must…a rustic barn. I was never one to plan out my wedding, but I did have two MUSTS…a barn for reception and a flower crown. 

Our wedding took place on possibly the hottest summer day of the year, with temps reaching over 100 degrees. It was hot and muggy and my sister did an amazing job of capturing these images despite us complaining about the heat. It was unbelievably hot! However, as I held E’s hand around the side of the barn, getting ready to see him for the first time as his bride, the heat melted away and all I saw was him. It was a truly magical moment! I definitely recommend doing a first look if you have the chance! 

Patterned Joggers

 Top: Stem ‘V-neck’ tank // Pants: Target ‘Tapered Joggers’ in Navy  // Jacket: Old – similar here and here // Shoes: Jack Rogers ‘Lauren’ in white // Necklace: Mini Coin Crystal Necklace c/o Taudrey // Bag: Tory Burch ‘Perry’ tote – similar here for less // Hat: Target// Bracelets: 

‘Roman Numeral Cuff’ c/o Taudrey and Forever 21 ‘Faux Stone Cuff’ // 

 This outfit was the perfect outfit for traveling when Ernie and I went on our mini-moon to Victoria, Canada at the beginning of the month. Soft jogger pants are my new go-to when I know I will be spending lots of time in a car or on a plane. This patterned pair caught my eye at Target. I loved the color combo and fun print and the price couldn’t be beat (under $25)! Pairing them with a white tank and a denim jacket (it was much cooler in Victoria than I expected), was the perfect comfy and casual outfit for our day of traveling and our first night out!

#WIWT + Wedding Week: Bridal Shower!

A few weekends ago, my sweet bridesmaids threw me the cutest bridal shower, themed after one of my favorite songs, Pineapple Princess. We didn’t get many photos, but I had to share the few we did as the theme was adorable. We had an enormous spread of brunch foods (bagels, pastries, fruit…) and enjoyed mimosas and infused water. The crafty girls that they are, they got there craft on with some adorable tassel pieces that I am also planning on hanging at the wedding for photo ops! 

 My crafty besties. These girls sure know how to get their craft on! 

 My little sister and I will do just about anything for a good picture. 

 My sweet sisters! Thanks for taking the photos Haley!
