Glam Night…I Mean Date Night

Having a signature go-to scent is a must. Whether you’re into something fruity, flowery or airy fresh, you need that one perfume bottle that stands the test of time! I recently received a bottle of Reem Acra Eau de Parfume and have fallen head over heels. Think of a lush, warm, woody fragrance, that will be perfect from running errands to the evening out.

I was so inspired I even created an entire date night look around my new bottle! I can’t get enough of the jewel tones in this look. Complete with a pulled back sock-bun, all I can say is TGIF!

Wedding of Nicole & John

My friends, Nicole and Jon were married this summer at the Nature Museum. The wedding was lovely. Nicole had her friend from college, Maribeth Romslo, as her photographer. I thought Maribeth did a stunning job! Here are some pictures:

I love this photo but it really captures the ambiance of the Nature Musuem. You’re surrounded by nature but there are urban touches.

I love this parasol with Nicole in her gorgeous J.Crew gown. The gown is very Nicole- simple, chic, and romantic.

In lieu of floral centerpieces, there was a cake on each table!

Here is a great picture of the set-up of the room. The linens were gorgeous!

I love this picture of me and Denton during the cocktail hour.

Such a gorgeous picture! It is very romantic– and reminds me of Nicole.

The couple chose to sit with their family instead of at a head table.

During the toasts, the photographer caught me winking at Denton. I do it all of the time so it is sort of special that she caught it! It’s Denton’s favorite picture of all time.
