The heatwave in Boston continues! I am looking forward to heading to the beach tomorrow and enjoying a relaxing weekend with family. I am sharing more about my bridal shower next week but for now enjoy these faves!

How amazing is this bathroom!?

6 unique ways to enjoy s'mores

What better way to cap off a hot summer weekend and a heat wave week than to talk about s'mores! A couple years ago, we made a s'mores skillet for a birthday cake and it was delicious. Here are some other unique ways to enjoy s'mores this summer, or any season!

Have a good weekend!

Great interview with the on-set stylist for The Bachelorette & The Bachelor.

Starbucks has a new at home cold brew kit that I want to pick up ASAP.



What I'm Wearing Wednesday: my bridal shower

I shared some pics from my bridal shower over the weekend. My step-mom was very sweet and generous to take me shipping for my bridal shower outfit. In keeping with the white theme, we set out to the mall and hit Nordstrom. This Milly white dress was the first dress I tried on and after trying on many more, nothing could top it! It fit my like a glove and felt really special. I love the window pane details and pleats. It didn't feel too trendy either for when I look back on these pictures in years to come.

Also it passed the sitting-down-to-open-gifts-and-still-look-cute test!

Gray sandals added a modern touch. I have them in black too and want another color. They are really flattering on and very comfortable! I kept my accessories minimal with my engagement ring and gray & silver drop earrings. My manicure was a nude-pink color and wore natural makeup.

More to come!


Weekend Scenes: My Bridal Shower

My bridal shower over the weekend was so amazing!  My mom, matron of honor, maid of honor and other family members outdid themselves with the adorable champagne theme and putting together a delicious menu of salads, chicken, and of course, cake! I will share more photos of all the details & what I wore, but here are a few snaps.
