Navy, ruffles, and one-piece. My new obsession.

I have always been a fan of the romper (jumper, whatever you decide to call it) but especially when it is  100+ degrees outside and nothing seems to be comfortable enough to wear. There is something so easy about throwing on a romper, great pair of heels and calling it a day.

Today kicks off my birthday week (Friday I turn the big 2-6), which is actually feeling a little surreal.  It could possibly be because exactly a year ago I was packing up our house and Kansas City and taking a major leap of faith changing careers and turing 25 all at the same time. So much has changed in a year.  We moved cities again, started another new job, got engaged, settled into 2 different homes, met new friends, and traveled all over the US. If you are a frequent reader, you already know now for the 3rd year in a row, I am in a new city on a new birthday. This year seems especially special because I am celebrating with my fiance by my side, in the city we think we will be spending forever in (but things always change :)). We have spent 7 of my birthdays together and somehow he always finds a way to make my day extra special no matter where we end up finding ourselves.

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with my mind full with inspiration or a favorite song on repeat, to the point that all I can do is sit up and start writing. Last night was one of those nights.

Maybe since my birthday is around the corner, and turning another year older is on my mind; I couldn’t help but imagine all of the things I want to start checking off my list; one being exploring my own city. We are all guilty of falling into a routine, you know that wake up, work, workout, eat dinner, watch tv, bed, repeat type of routine but last night  I started craving more. Maybe it has something to do with all of our recent travels, but I am wanting something different. I want to read more, venture to new parts of the city I have yet to explore and listen to music that inspires me.

I always revert to the classics to find the most inspiration and this outfit is no different. A twist on the classic white and denim is the perfect blank slate. To itch that craving to explore, we ventured to a new part of the city last night.  A part full of leather wearing, tattoo filled folks, only to find myself in the most girly outfit I could find. But maybe it’s okay to feel different every so often.

When it comes to making decisions for our wedding, it has been pretty easy. Thanks to my amazing wedding planner, Jen, the planning process has been a breeze.  When it came to the save the dates, there are soo many options to choose from.  Since we decided to take engagement pictures (thanks to the advice of the incredible Elyse Hall), I thought it was only fitting to use our favorite photograph for our Save The Date. After about 20 options with different fonts, formats, and paper options; I let Patrick pick the final result. I am so happy with how they turned out, but I am leaving the actual invites to the professionals.

Also, you can find a little sneak peek of our engagement shoot on Elyse’s blog today! She is so talented!
