She Said:
I have been looking for the perfect sheath dress that makes a bold statement but is also ultra comfortable. What better dress, than to have animal print, t-shirt sleeves and the just right length for any occasion. This could be dressed up if you were attending a wedding or evening party. I paired it with this gorgeous Alphaline Design “My Wings” necklace, which has no clasp but an innovative magnetic clasp on the charm. I chose this particular style becuase I used to think Hummingbirds were bad luck, due to personal losses in my life. Recently, as you all know we lost Hudson our 2 year old great dane and every morning when we would go outside in our walkway there at eye level, a hummingbird fluttering its beautiful colors. Now, when I see this hummingbird I turn my negative into a positive and enjoy the symbolism and joy. I think of my Mamajean (grandma) and our Hudson boy…brings tears to my eyes. So, be sure to check out Alphaline Designs my new favorite piece of jewelry, that holds a special place in my heart and hopefully yours too! They are also on facebook!
He Said:
Today it’s all about the dress; I like this dress but don’t love it. The pattern is ok, but what bothers me is the fit. I wish it were just a little tighter and not so loose. The yellow bag is really the perfect bag for this outfit. But my favorite part of her outfit is her necklace. This necklace looks spectacular but as a guy I am more interested in the manufacturing process, as weird as that sounds it’s the truth. It is just a very cool necklace with the two halves that are magnetic, and if women like it as well it’s a win win in my book.

She Said:
I so wish this peplum jacket was still available for you guys from Zara, I found it on major sale and I adore it for fall. I kept this look pretty simple with a black sheer top and statement ankle strap heels. These are just a few simple pieces that I think work for any weather right now, a 70 day or a cooler evening. I also love these Kensie skinny jeans, they are so comfortable and form to my body! Do you have a favorite pair of jeans you love wearing?
He Said:
This outfit proves anything can look bad in the wrong context. I would normally gush over these heels but the ankle strap just does not work with jeans. Something showing more leg is needed with heels like these. The sunglasses are the next thing that draws my eye and they just look weird, I do know how else to put it, there is something odd about their round shape. You take these two bad elements out of her outfit and you have a great looking, sexy outfit.

She Said:
I have done a few DIY projects on my blog, painted Silver Jeans, necklace & bracelet holders and how to simplify your coffee table.  I am excited to FINALLY share with you all how I asked my bridal party with a DIY “will you be my bridesmaid/maid of honor” gift. I spent a lot of timing thinking about how I wanted to ask and make it extra special because Pinterest and Etsy have so many amazing ideas. If you don’t know I am an artist, I enjoy oil painting, though I have not painted in a while, I still love do it yourself projects that are artistic and creative, so this I knew I would love! One thing I was absolutely certain were gifts for when I asked my bridal party; I wanted to get them this Gigi New York All in One Bag, because WOW they are gorgeous. I received the package and was elated to get started…
What you will need:
Box:
Collapsible Gift Box in White Glossy from the Container Store
Cards:
Craft Supplies:
Craft Flowers with sticky back
Stampendous Encrusted Jewel Kit, Bronze

What do you think, do you like them?

I spent some time on choosing the different encrusted jewels on the “will you be my bridesmaid” portion but this can be done however you wish! Have fun with it, all of my girls said YES, I am so excited for the next steps and did I mention I just found my DRESS this past weekend, in case you missed my toast, find it on instagram!
Would you like me to post more about my wedding ideas, colors, info on here?
