Monday Work Wear

With warm weather continuing to linger, this week I’m in the mood for good transition pieces – just the right color, just the right silhouette, and the perfect hint of summer days.
Silka Designs delivers exactly that.


Since I can’t wear my wedding dress to work (that’s right I found the dress this weekend! Check back on Wedding Wednesday to see a sneak peak!) these looks will have to make do.

Happy {Bridal Bliss} Weekend

Ok girls, the moment is here. Tomorrow, for the first time in my life, I will try on a wedding dress. Probably 50 of them actually since I don’t really know what I’m looking for.

Luckily, I’ll have my experts on hand to help me make the perfect choice.

Pressing Pause

I wouldn’t consider this blog your primary source for all things serious but this week I got a major reminder of the importance of the little things in life that I feel compelled to share.

Apologies in advance if this is a little too Hallmark card for your tastes.
We plan and routinize in an attempt to rest control from what is really a chaotic and unpredictable world. As the days, weeks and months fly past it often becomes hard to discern one moment from another.
The weight of regret or past transgressions swivel our heads to the past, leaving us to stumble through the present, and blind to what the future might having waiting for us just around the bend.
It often takes a shock to the system to get you looking straight ahead and remind you to marvel at what is right before you – all the glorious parts of your day and life that are within arms reach. I encourage you to pull it all in close, hug it tightly and say thanks for everything precious in you life.
Hit pause today. It’s completely different than the world was yesterday and will be impossible to replicate tomorrow. I find peace in that thought and I thought you might too.
Thanks for listening. Now back to our regularly scheduled gorgeousness.
