.Wedding Wednesday, Engagement Photos.

Floral Dress, c/o Pinkblush

It's Wedding Wednesday, our "Save The Dates" went out, so I thought what better time then now to share a handful of our engagement photos! There was SO many goods one, I didn't want to share them all at once. So here's a tease for now :) 

I have to tell you guys that taking these pictures was one of the best experiences Tyler and I have ever had! Kennedy did sneak in a couple photos, but it was mostly just him and I. It was the first time we got to take professional photos just the two of us. Our photographer, Shawna from Mr & Mrs. Wedding Duo is an absolute doll! She made us feel super relaxed and we truly just had a ball! Not to mention, I am obsessed with how they turned out! Planning a wedding while raising a toddler can be a little overwhelming at times, but this was a real treat and something we will treasure for a lifetime!

Of course when I started planning all the details for our engagement photos, one of the biggest decisions was what I was going to wear! I knew I wanted two looks and I wanted them to be very different. I wanted one dress to be white, lace, classic. I wanted the other to be a maxi or midi length, off the shoulder, and floral.

The first was not hard to find at all! I actually picked up the white dress the day after Christmas when I was shopping with my mom. It was on crazy sale and I bought it knowing it would be perfect! 

The second dress, I was stressing about! I was having the hardest time finding the perfect one!! I splurged and ordered a couple online and they ended up being horrible and getting sent right back! When I was about to give up, I remembered a favorite store of mine that always saves the day, Pinkblush!! As luck would have it, they had just got two floral, off the shoulder maxi dresses in stock!! It was love at first sight when I came across the blush version! I ordered it right then and the rest is history :) Basically Pinkblush saved the day because the dress ended up being perfect for the occasion! I love how it looks with the beach location we shot at. 
I'd love to know where you love to shop for bridal event outfits?? I have so many coming up, so I am going to need a couple!!

Thanks for stopping by,

.Off The Shoulder Pom Poms.

Happy Friday!! Can you believe it, I blogged?! To say these last couple months have been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Between balancing my new marketing job, keeping up will my {almost} two year old, planning a wedding, and possibly moving- it's been a little hectic to say the least. I have really missed blogging! It's been such a huge part of my life for the past three years and brings me a lot of joy. I have made a promise to myself to find the time. I am a lot more active on Instagram, so make sure to follow along there, if you're not already {@kotineru}.

Now onto the cutest top that I have worn in a long time! If you have been following along on Instagram, you know that off the shoulder is pretty much my uniform these days! Off the shoulder and blue & white stripes are basically taking over my closet! When I came across this top from K. Ellis Boutique, I knew I had to have it! The lightweight fabric is perfect for the warmer weather that's on it's way and the pom pom stole my heart! I love that the color is so versatile, it truly looks perfect with every color denim I have in my wardrobe! It's totally going to be on repeat this summer with distressed denim shorts too. 

Side note for other moms- I know it can be a little tough to style off the shoulder tops when you have little ones to pick up. This top also looks darling worn up on your shoulders. So you can wear it both ways, up on the shoulders for play dates & down off the shoulder for date night!! Win-win.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to go work on planning a certain almost two years old party.
