Hi guys! Sorry to be so MIA this past week, but there was a LOT going on. After Outside Lands, I flew to Colorado for my cousin’s wedding. It was held at The Pines at Genessee, a wedding venue really close to my parent’s house in Evergreen. It was the perfect rustic outdoor setting, something I want for my wedding eventually.
I’m SUPER excited about today’s post. A few weeks back, Paper Crown contacted me for a unique collaboration. I got to choose whatever bridesmaid dress fit my body type for a piece on Lauren Conrad’s website, so I chose the Lauren dress (ironic, I know) since I am smaller on the top and bigger on the bottom. Paper Crown has such a great selection of beautiful bridesmaid dresses, so it was quite hard to choose! I think this one was perfect for me, though- and pretty forgiving with all the eating and dancing that occurs at weddings 🙂
It is so great to see big brands like this reaching out to real girls for content, I think it shows honesty and integrity in the brand in a world where there is so much fake edited content. Thanks to Paper Crown for the opportunity!
Look forward to more posts to come 🙂

I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday! As for me, I’m stuck at home sick, but at least that means I can do an extra post this week 🙂 Now for the good stuff, Weddington Way asked me to partner again with them to pick out a tux from their Gent Shop tuxedo rentals and pair it with a bridesmaid dress, available here. I love Weddington Way and everything my friend Hannah Pobar is doing with the brand, so of course I said yes. My picks are…
A black tux and a grey bow tie. I love the simplicity of this black tux with the classy and untraditional bow tie. The bow tie adds some playfulness to the tux, something that guys don’t usually get with a classic black suit and tie. The grey also complements the blush of the bridesmaids dress I chose below.
I paired the tux with a simple A-line dress in blush. The high neck line of this dress is to die for, and the shape is so timeless. Ideally I would choose the rest of my bridesmaids dresses to be a shape that matches all of their different body types, but in the same color. I think it’s fun to mix and match a little!
Hope everyone has a great rest of their day, I’m off to sleep (after I finish binge watching Sex and the City and ordering Thai food…)
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of shooting with Hannah Pobar who is a lead designer at Weddington Way. It was a dreamy shoot in the Weddington Way studio filled with champagne, bridal dresses and glittering jewelry. Hannah is such a lovely lady who makes you feel comfortable with any silly pose you may be doing. We had a blast, not to mention I got to try on all types of dresses. Made me think of what I would want my bridal party to be like… Just kidding. Totally kidding, I’m way too young for that.
I’m absolutely in love with how these came out! Be sure to check out Weddington Way for some delicate, flirty and fun bridesmaids dresses for that special day.
P.S. I’m currently back in my hometown celebrating Father’s Day. Follow along on my Instagram.
