I’ve been on cloud 9 since I got engaged. I’m excited, and also a little scared, at the thought of wedding planning. So far, we’re thinking the wedding will be sometime in the Spring of 2017, which gives me over a year to plan. I’d like to think I’m going to diet and work out in beast mode, but we’ll see. I’ve been daydreaming about what I’m going to wear, what I want my colors are going to be, what quirky venues I’d like to check out, etc, etc. You can check out my Wedding board on Pinterest here. I have a whirlwind of ideas running through my head, but when it comes to how I want to look on my wedding day, 60s style seems to be a recurring theme. I am so inspired by the 60s… thick eyeliner, dramatic lashes, flowy dresses, gem tones, and best of all, the BIG 60s hair. YUM.
Have you guys watched Season 7 of Mad Men? When I first started getting into Mad Men, I really liked that 50s Betty Draper look with the structured hair and sweet little pinup dresses… but I was in LOVE at the women’s style in the final season, when the show was set in the 60s. The hair and makeup was amazing.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I need big 60s hair for my wedding day.
Summer Dresses for Work and Play
I love Summer weather, but it’s been intensely hot in So Cal, and we’ve even had a couple weeks where it was abnormally humid. I typically like to layer my clothes – cardigans are part of my daily uniform no matter what season. But lately, with this hot, sticky weather, I’ve been looking for simply, easy dresses I can just throw on without any other articles besides jewelry and shoes. I’ve been especially obsessed with shift dresses because they tend to be roomy and versatile for both the office and for a casual day or night out. Here are some of my top pics for both work and play. You can dress all of these up with a pair of pumps, or down with some cute sandals.
