Gift Guide - Wedding Events

Fall Wedding Season is upon us and that means that our calendars will be filled with engagement parties, bridal showers, couples showers, and bachelorette parties! A full social calendar is always fun, but with parties comes gift giving. I enjoy giving gifts specially to our close friends, but sometimes it can be hard to do so, especially when the couple seems to have it all.

Wedding Registries are a wonderful thing, they make shopping for Wedding Gifts a breeze! But what about all of the other events that come along with weddings? I always have a hard time picking out gifts for those occasions because not only do I want the gift to mean something to the bride, groom, or the couple but I also want them to get use out of it!!

I have partnered with Uncommon Goods to bring you gift ideas for all other wedding events (think couples showers or engagement parties)! I love Uncommon Goods because they have a wide range of unique gifts that everyone will love!!

I hope y'all enjoyed this post and it makes gift shopping a bit easier!
Happy Shopping!!

It finally feels like Fall in Texas!!! It was in the 50s this morning and I loved it! Fall is one of my favorite seasons; not only because you don't melt like a popsicle when you walk outside, but also Fall fashion is so versatile that switching a couple of accessories can change up your whole look!

I put that to the test by styling this gorgeous burgundy dress 3 different ways!

Outfit #1: I never thought I would jump on the choker trend, but I was wrong! I found this choker at Charlotte Russe a couple of weeks ago for $5 and it adds the perfect amount of fall to this dress. This is a very monochromatic look which allows the shoes to be the focal point! Can we just talk about how cute the shoes are??? The fringe in the back of the shoes adds the perfect finishing touch to the outfit.

Outfit#2: I traded the choker for a statement necklace, the shoes for a pair of OTK books, and the purse for a gold envelope clutch; this made the whole outfit feel more fall appropriate and versatile to wear for a night out when the temperatures start to drop!

Outfit #3: I just added a faux fur vest to take this look to another level! If you are not a fan of faux fur vest just add a black suede vest and it would look equally stunning!!

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend and enjoyed this post!
