Sneak Peek - Europe!

Wow!!  As I sit her and type this, I am overwhelmed with emotion...  John and I arrived back in the USA this week, after the most amazing trip of a lifetime.  And tomorrow, we are packing up all of our things to MOVE from North Carolina to Princeton, New Jersey!  

It has been a whirlwind of a month - one that I will NEVER forget.  I will resume normal blogging once we get all settled into our new place and get internet.  I have missed it!  And I have missed YOU!  
I feel like my readers - hi Mom! - and I have been on a break, and I am SO ready to get back together :)

I can't wait to share all of our adventures from our European vacation, but there are over 2300 pictures, and about that many stories to sift through. 
For now, I wanted to share just a SNEAK PEEK of our trip!
We seriously had the time of our lives, and I feel so blessed to have been able to go on this adventure with my best friend and love of my life.  

Enjoy!  And see you (or will blog again...) in PRINCETON!!

Mellow Yellow

I was just looking through some pictures from the last month or so, and I kept coming across pops of yellow everywhere!  I really didn't notice that I was wearing it so much, until I spotted these pics....

I guess the summer has gotten me in the sunny mood!
Have you been donning yellow lately?  Or is it too bold for you?

Hope you are having a lovely and BRIGHT day!

Friday's Fancies - Outfit Crush

june 15th - outfit crush

Today's Friday's Fancies is a fun one!  We are creating an outfit that is inspired by one that we've seen before -- whether it was in an ad, an article, a store window, or online somewhere.  After pinning a million fashion and outfit pictures on Pinterest, I kept coming back to this gorgeous picture filled with color-blocking hues and gorgeous accents.

cobalt + turquoise.

Inspired by the mix-matched blues and flowy chic-ness, I came up with this outfit -- and it immediately got me day-dreaming of a tropical vacation :)

Feelin' Blue
1-2-3 (similar) 

I LOVE the cobalt and turquoise together - and with the gold and camel accents, the colors flow together seamlessly.  I've always been a fan of maxi skirts, and I love the color and shape this one offers.  The ring is stunning, and the nail polish has got to be one of my all-time favorites for spring and summer!

Are you a fan of color-blocking?  How about mixing different shades of colors together?  I think turquoise and cobalt might just be my new favorite pairing :)

Happy Weekend!

ps. check out more friday's fancies over at long distance loving!
