Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking (OOTD)



Everytime I talk about florals in the Spring, my mind instantly goes to The Devil Wears Prada.  Who could forget Miranda Priestly's sarcasm and shade-filled quote that I borrowed for the title of this post.

When I saw how nice it was outside this weekend, I had to pull out this easy breezy floral skirt and wear my first pair of sandals of the season! I also did a last minute braid out on my relaxed hair. I liked the loose waves it created, and after blowing in the wind all day and me running my fingers through it I was able to achieve the tousled bed-head look that Beyonce has been sporting lately.  Fingers crossed that I can replicate those results and actually get a pic next time lol.

Bikini Time! 2-Piece Swim for Under $50

I have been in a great mood since Spring weather finally arrived. For the past 5 days, the temperature has been consistently above 70 degrees, which makes it much easier to start shopping for swimwear! I experimented with the 2-piece "fatkini" last year and loved it, so this year I will be picking up a new 2-piece this year.  Below are a few of my favorite mix-and-match bikini sets that don't break the bank--each piece is under $50.

Be on the lookout for my next swimwear post--One-Piece swimsuits under $50!

Ladi Life: Wedding Events


The last few weeks have been a blur for me.  From my bridal shower, to my first dress fitting, to an engagement photoshoot, it's safe to say I am in "wedding mode." After months (ok years) of planning, this special day has gone from being sooo far away to being just around the corner. Last week I went to "the country" where I'm from for my bridal shower.   I wore an adorable fit-and-flare brocade dress by Kensie:


I loved my dress, even after I found out it matched some of the furniture in my future in-laws' living room...
B**ch stole my look. But I look better :) 

This past weekend, my fiance and I took our engagement photos! For days leading up to the shoot I was worried that we would get rained out, but luckily the weather cooperated long enough for us to get some amazing shots. Here are a couple:


Philosophy peplum top, A.n.a Jeans, Matisse Sandals

Worthington blazer, Old Navy cami, Phillip Lim for Target skirt, Jessica Simpson heels

My next big event coming up is the bachelorette party/weekend!  I rarely go out partying so I am having the hardest time trying to find something to wear, but as soon as I figure it out, of course I will share ;)
