Catching My Breath


These past few days have been kind of crazy!  I've been trying to get everything ready for our wedding on Friday.  It doesn't matter how prepared you think you are, it's really never enough.  I tend to be an "over-planner" so I think I drive myself a little nuts for no apparent reason.  The truth is, if I wasn't completely overwhelmed, I'd probably be a little worried!





Top- H&M
Skirt- H&M (remixed)
Shoes- Jessica Simpson
Scarf (worn as headband)- Modcloth
Tights- H&M
Necklace- UrbanOG

This shopping ban is starting to get hard.  It's not like I don't have anything to chose from, but I'm sure you know the feeling of being completely uninspired by your wardrobe.  I guess it's just more of a challenge, but it's so much easier to go out and buy something exciting and new!  I'm still staying true to my promise...  I just hope I can resist the temptation to shop!




  1. awww the wedding is Friday!? I cannot wait to see photos...that is if you decide to share, which I hope you do! Good luck with all the finishing touches and try not to stress one bit on the big day!

    Love the skirt!

  9. Don't stress. I know that is easier said than done, but just try to be excited rather than stressed. You will enjoy the moments leading up to it much more. It's such a special time in your life. Try to savour it and remember what you are feeling right now. It's a fleeting instant in your life...don't rush...slow down enough to breathe it all in. I guarantee you won't regret taking the time to appreciate the details and emotions of it all.

    That is the same scarf I have : ) So cute on you around the head.

    I tried to do the whole shopping ban thing this month. I went shopping not once, not twice, but THREE times. Although it was definitely my mom's fault. She made me drive her to the mall all three times, so I couldn't resist.


    1. Whoa, totally forgot you're getting married soon. Soon is this Friday! Congrats in advance, and I wish you the most wonderful wedding day of your dreams!

  18. I have always been a fan of polka dots!

  19. Ah I can't believe you're getting married on friday! SO awesome!!
    You look perfectly lovely in this outfit, I love the printed top and that headscarf is gorgeous. I am having a hard time with my ban too, I feel like I hate everything I own. Booo!

  20. Oh sweetie really cute your headband!


  21. I can't believe your wedding is so soon! I hope you get a chance to breath, I'm sure it will all go smoothly. You'll have to keep us updated on the My Fair Wedding Thing too :) And I totally get you on the shopping ban thing. It is TOUGH. Luckily, everything you already own is adorable. I love how you wore this scarf and I especially love the necklace!

  22. I love the outfit. It is gorgeous!

    Congrats on the upcoming wedding! I hope everything goes smoothly and that you both have a lifetime of happiness together.
