Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope you all had a restful and relaxing weekend. Having recently started a new job and taking a month off beforehand, it was tough to jump right back into it. I’m grateful that I had a long weekend to help with the ease of this. Right before starting work, I went to not one, but two back-to-back weddings. They were both in the Bay Area which meant two things a) I got to experience more of the place I get to call home and b) I didn’t have to travel far to celebrate my friends.
Tonight’s wedding Monday is also another San Francisco wedding! I’ve been following Nikki on Instagram for some time and have always admired her style. Her feed is full of looks we want to emulate and of course, #travelgoals. I recently watched her entire Instagram story outlining the details of her wedding from her invitations, to her looks, to the venues that she used and each one was chosen with such intent. The video highlights a beautiful day with an extremely loving couple. I’m pretty sure this video doesn’t even do their day justice, but we couldn’t not feature it.
Who: Fashion blogger of The Blonde Salad, Chiara Ferragni and husband Fedez
Wearing: Custom Dior Courture
Where: Her wedding day!
Goodness, when it comes to OG fashion bloggers, Chiara was one of the first that we looked up to along with Aimee, Natalie, Rumi, Jules, and so on. This weekend, Chiara wed her rockstar fiance or should we say husband now – and every outfit of this weekend was stunning. I’m going to have dreams about this lace forever.

After months of not being able to get to my favorite wedding blogs, it felt so good to catch up this week. I can’t wait to show you the wedding videos I’ve got in the queue coming up. One of the posts that I stumbled upon didn’t have a wedding video tied to it, but did it end up being Anna Campbell’s latest “Wanderlust” Collection. I found myself scrolling through the post and having so many favorites that I had to share them here with you.
Anna is known for her beautifully embellished gowns and while I have never seen myself loving a gown that resembled this style, I’m quickly discovering how much it is growing on me!

For those of you who have been following Yow Yow! for years now, you know that these are some of my most intimate posts. Often times, I’m saying more with the images that I select than in the paragraphs I’m writing ahead of the post. For the first time ever, I’ve selected images that come from only one source. I recently discovered a new Tumblr that has become a fast favorite. Worried at first that I wouldn’t have enough material to use or even that the post would be an inaccurate representation of what I was hoping to convey ended up not being a real concern after all.
It has been a week of being completely stress free and living in my moments without having a plan. I think these photos depict an image of that. I think this is what carefree-ness and whimsy looks like and it’s entirely how I’m feeling. In these photos, you’ll notice that there are some up-close shots of a part of a body or detail zoomed in. I may not have known it at the time when I was picking out the photo, but it ended up being more intentional than planned. I wanted to focus and hone in on one thing specifically as opposed to doing the whole “big picture” thing.
That first dress was beautiful, but who could forget the 2nd dress that stunned us all? This high-neck Stella McCartney will go down in history as one of the most unforgettable dresses of our time. It feels like the Royal Wedding happened some time ago, but we’re all still talking about it! Earlier this week, McCartney announced that she plans on releasing 46 replicas of this dress – 23 in black and 23 in white as part of the “Made With Love” capsule collection. They won’t be exact replications of this reception dress though because there can only be one, but they will resemble a similar silhouette.
The expected price is £3,500 (approximately $4700 USD) and according to The Telegraph, those interested must email firstname.lastname@example.org and receive a personal invitation by McCartney to view the gowns, which are housed in a private space at her new shop on 23 Old Bond Street in London.
I know this is a little controversial, but I am obsessed with black bridesmaids dresses. I’ve been thinking about these for the last year and am almost sure that I’ll end up making that same decision for myself in the future. The details in this wedding are just exquisite. The florals, the embroidered denim jackets… and can I just mentioned that I love the fact that the bride and groom did their first dance to “Alabama Shakes – I Found You?” It’s the perfect modern day song for a first dance at a wedding. This post doesn’t do this wedding any justice so please, please, please head on over to their feature over at [Green Wedding Shoes]
