Wedding Mondays

Hello everyone! Happy Monday morning! I just realized that it has been nearly a month since we’ve had a Wedding Mondays video post, however, I suppose we make up for it in posts about weddings in general. I am thrilled to share with you all a refreshing video this morning though – after all, it has been awhile!

Kyndra and Trevor decided they wanted their wedding to embody these three themes: romantic, whimsical, and dreamy and wow Рdid they accomplish that. Their beautiful wedding in Texas looks like a boho-dream come true.

These bridesmaids’ dresses all come from Urban Outfitters, Free People, and Etsy! The bride’s dress is Anna Sui for BHLDN.

Enjoy! To view the rest of the feature, you can visit Green Wedding Shoes.

BHLDN Introduces Separates

BHLDN is changing the bridal game with their new video introducing separates! As if Bridal Week didn’t get us excited enough, BHLDN is kind of making my feels skyrocket a bit. First off, how dreamy are these pieces? I love the idea that in this day and age we’re stepping back from tradition and brides everywhere are becoming less afraid to do something totally unique. This video touches on a few of those things:

1) Separates in general

2) mix and match pieceing and coloring

3) the little white dress

4) two looks in one

I recently viewed a wedding feature in which the bride did not only a first look with her groom, but a second look as well. In the second look she transformed from her big bridal gown ie) pulled off the skirt and unveiled a slimmed down reception dress. It was perfect.

Needless to say, we are very excited about what’s to come for BHLDN.

Our Favorite Looks From Bridal Week

Oscar de la Renta

Truth: My hands are so sore from climbing this evening that it hurts to type right now, but I just didn’t want to wait a full week to pass before we wrote a post about this. What I find really funny about the fashion industry is that the pieces we see are always predicting trends for the future. Even though bridal week just happened last week, these dresses are for Spring 2016. An entire year from now! How do we know that these trends are still going to be “in?” Well, we just have to trust that that’s how this works and that’s how it always has been, rkght? With that food for thoughts, let’s get into some of my favorite gowns from bridal week. Now, this doesn’t mean that these are gowns I could ever see myself in, some of them are, but some of them I just like for other reasons.

Emily Ratajkowski for Free People Intimates

You recognize her from Gone Girl. Before that, you saw her in Robin Thicke’s music video for “Blurred Lines.” Now? Emily’s all over the Free People intimates lookbook in all of the pieces we want to own. Lingerie, I’ve decided, is something people care about in their later 20’s. In college, you could care less about the things you were wearing underneath your clothes. However, in your late 20’s, you start calling your bras and panties… delicates. It just brings a whole new meaning to that word.

For more looks, click the cut below. And for tips on how to organize your delicates? Free People has got you covered there too.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Olivia Palermo

Wearing: Valentino

Where: American Museum of Natural History Museum Dance

Yes, Jordana Brewster donned a similar look recently for the “Furious 7″ premiere. I’m obsessed with this print.

Readers, do you prefer the look with sleeves or sleeveless? I actually love Jordana’s color better and having it sleeveless, but we couldn’t not write a post about Olivia.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Rose Byrne in a Burberry Prorsum Dress

The Burberry “London in Los Angeles” event at Griffith Observatory last night was full of just outstanding looks. Usually, these types of events will only garner one look that I will highlight for “Snaps for a Snapshot,” but in this case, there’s no way we can include just one.

#RevolveWedding

Phoebe Dress – $115

Whenever I learn that I’ve got a wedding to attend, the hunt to find the perfect dress begins immediately. In general, finding a dress for a wedding can already be difficult, but something that I want to try for future weddings is wearing a dress that fits with the overall theme of the wedding or the couple! This summer, I’m attending a reception for my co-worker and she is the ultimate “cool girl.” She has an incredible sense of style and is also just a very easy going person. I once hung out with her and her fiance at a gastropub in Campbell drinking and eating for hours. So when I attend her reception this summer, I want to make sure that what I wear is fitting. Luckily for me, Revolve has handpicked a number of dresses for the upcoming wedding season and here are a few that I’m considering for my dear friend’s big day!

Coachella 2015 Street Style

Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!

I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.

Herschel’s 2015 Spring Collection

It has only been four months into the year, but already I’ve got travel plans on my mind. San Diego next month is just the first adventure, but after that we’ve got so many more months ahead to plan for week-long trips, weekend trips, and even longer trips! The goal is to have one 10-day trip on the calendar this year – where we’re going to go – we’re not sure yet! But there are possibilities. However, the only travel bag I’ve got is my Herschel duffel and there’s no way that will last me for a 10-day trip so it’s back to square one. Once we settle on the bag, we can settle on the trip, right? When I first bought my duffel, it was just after graduating college and I thought it was perfect for my weekend long trips. I think it’s called the Weekender anyways so it was a good fit. However, when that thing is all stuffed, it can be really difficult to lug around. I’m totally THAT girl that has to ask people on my flights to help me stow my bag overwhead and take it back down again. Also, I’m that girl that is lopsided carrying my bag because it’s so heavy and I’m sweating getting to my gate. Herschel just unveiled their new Spring collection and I’m really excited about their hard-shell luggage with wheels!

Now I can’t have all of these things, but if I had it my way – these pieces would be mine!

Wedding Decoration Trends to Love in 2015

Unfortunately, we won’t be having our typical “Wedding Mondays” post tomorrow so instead I decided to opt about a new favorite topic of mine: Wedding Decorating Trends in 2015!

Many couples in 2015 are taking the approach of going for a more natural, minimalistic, and understated look and it’s really working. Here are some of my favorites that I think are not only trendy, but will probably remain timeless. One of my friends is currently planning her wedding for 2016 and she plans on incorporating trends from 2015 as well.

Succulents vs. Florals

In previous years, weddings used to always be about florals and the kind of arrangements you had. This was usually quite expensive. Succulents, however, are proving to be a great alternative. Not only are they a bit cheaper (so I’ve heard!) but they also compliment pastel color schemes really well like this one pictured above.

Azure Skies Dactyl Tank – $35

While running errands yesterday, I stopped by the mall to make an exchange on a swimsuit piece that I had recently purchased. I had been getting emails from Aritzia that they were having a huge spring sale so I figured while I was at the mall, I might as well pop in. To my disappointment, it seems like the sale was only online, but that didn’t stop me from perusing the rest of the entire store where every piece was originally priced.

I told myself – I’m just browsing. My wallet is staying in my purse and I’m not going to take it out. There’s no harm in looking. This was very similar to the lie that I used to tell my grandparents when I was a kid and they took me to the grocery store and I told them that I only wanted to “look” at the candy aisle, but promised not to ask for anything. They always caved, of course. And naturally, I did too and purchased this adorable pastel colored and polka dotted tank. I almost walked right past it, but it was sort of… twinkling at me on the corner rack. It looked great with my new Uniqlo jeggings that I have been obsessed with and it’s a perfect wear for both spring and summer. I feel like every summer is a summer devoted to stripes, but I’m really looking forward to bringing back the polka dots and hopefully soon I’ll show you all some of my favorite polka dotted picks for the season!

I Like Your Style…Kiernan Shipka

It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!

2015 Current Trends in Bridal Gowns

Wedding season is almost upon us and with a friend of mine having a low key wedding this summer and another dear friend of mine planning out her wedding that’s happening in April 2016, all I’m thinking about is weddings! It’s actually the perfect time to start thinking about the trends that we’ll be seeing this year so I wanted to share some thoughts on what my favorite trends for bridal gowns are for this upcoming season and they are absolutely swoonworthy.

Some of the best trends in bridal gowns today are ones that completely steer brides away from old traditions. Personally, I find these trends to be very refreshing because it allows couples to throw weddings the way they want and to have something that’s completely unique and their own as opposed to a very long time ago when all weddings kind of looked the same.

Color

There are still many many people that wear white on their wedding day, but some brides are daring to be a little bit different and choosing gowns that are neutral, off-white, and champagne colored as well as any hue in the color family. Some even opt for bright and bold prints that will still let everyone know that they are the bride and that their wedding day is still clearly their day.
