Bridal Shower Chic + Happy Weekend!

Looks like it's time to kick this weekend off right!
I woke up in such a good mood (duh, it's Friday!), and I'm ridiculously giddy! The reason? I'm heading to Wichita for the weekend, and I have my very first bridal shower tomorrow!!

My mom's dearest friends are way too cute setting up such an extravagant shower just for me! There will be so many cute, creative touches knowing them, and I just feel blessed beyond words that they want to do all of that for me? Can't wait to see everyone!

Questions... Is it weird that I'm a little nervous?

There will be around 50 ladies at this shower and I don't really know what to expect! :)

Last night, my almost mother-in-law helped me find an outfit for the occasion. As always, I want to feel comfortable, pretty, be able to be worn for lots of things, and be flattering.

We ended up at LOFT and I found the world's best dress! It's sweatpants comfy, but looks chic and seriously SO slimming. If you don't have this dress, I recommend grabbing it ASAP. It didn't look like much on the hanger, but boy was it adorable on!

I found a cute turquoisey-blue necklace to add some color, plan to add some fun patterned tights, and pair with my favorite black suede wedges! What do you think?

So many other fun things to look forward to this weekend...

+ sissy snuggle time
+ saturday girls bestie night
+ playing dominoes with grandpa
+ sleeping in
+ coffee with the parentals
+ seeing lots of my favorite people
+ walking the pups
+ painting nails
+ just relaxing

...finally being reunited with the future hubs on Sunday after his week-long Seattle trip!!


I absolutely PROMISE to remember to take lots of photos this weekend! Feel free to keep up with me via Twitter and Instagram for the behind-the-scenes photos, but recap will happen next week!

PS - That amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe I promised? Coming your way at lunch!!

What are you crazy kids up to this weekend?
Make it a good one!!



  1. What a fun weekend and that outfit is fantastic! Enjoy the celebration!

  2. Can't wait about the bridal shower! You're amazing!

    Woohoo for celebrating love!

  3. I think the outfit is totally cute! I like the necklace pop of color

  4. Its perfectly fine to be nervous but remember all that love in the room is there for you. Best advice, if you get something you didn't registered for, just smile big and know you can easily return. At my shower and at my wedding present opening, we got a few crystal Mikasa pieces that I know we didn't register for and I know a friend of mine got as presents at her wedding prior to mine so not only getting a non-registered gifts and having them re-gift things they got turned into an interesting day!

  5. That dress is gorgeous, and I'm sure you'll have the most FAB time at your shower. I can't wait to see pics! :)

  6. Love that dress!! 50 women at your shower?? Wow! Have fun and remember you're the guest of honor! No need to be nervous-- they all just want to make you feel special. :)
