Wedding Season Fashion (and getting wedding season ready)

It's that time of year, everyone- wedding season! I don't know about you, but I actually only have one wedding this year (woo hooooooo, Eryka!!!). That is amazing compared to one year when I had seven. Yes, seven! And I was in four of them! It was such a blast but was SO expensive! But, I am to the point in my life where the majority of my friends/family are all married, so the years of have wedding after wedding are (sadly) over. 

As easy as it is to wear a classic, black cocktail dress to a wedding, it is nice to think outside the realm of typical wedding attire and wear some color. So many women seem to show up to weddings in classic black. I don't blame any of these ladies because black is classic and it doesn't go out of style. For me though, I like to be a little different (but not too different that any attention is taken away from the bride, of course- and not that I think I am important enough or anything like that for people to be drawn to me!).

When your next wedding rolls around, take  a chance and wear some color! You will stand out among the sea of black after black after black cocktail dresses!!

Here are a few dresses that are perfect for wedding season- bright, cheery, versatile. They are so easy to dress up for your more formal weddings, or dress down for casual ceremonies.

Another thing I like to add to my fun dress is a statement necklace. Again, it just completes the whole look. Plus, it is something fun to add to your jewelry box for future wear and can be relatively inexpensive-especially if you already have the dress in your closet! 

1. BaubleBar /// 2. BaubleBar /// 3. ILY Couture /// 4. Stella and Dot

Because I am a Mommy, I am usually carrying around a diaper bag or a huge purse! If I do have a clutch, I will toss it in my diaper bag. I am sure you can imagine that when I get to dress up I go all out. All.Out. Having the perfect clutch can seal the deal with your whole look.  Plus, it forces you to minimize all of the junk in your purse and carry the necessities-your id, credit card, lipstick and gum!

Not only is this the time of year that most people want to get into shape because of bathing suit season, but a lot of people want to be fit for wedding season! Whether you are a bride, in the bridal party or just have some weddings to attend this is the time to get your rear in gear!

There are a lot of things that are sort of motivating me to keep plugging away with Nutrisystem, and my friends wedding is one of them! I don't know about you, but my friends and I love to take pictures, so I want to feel good when I am getting my picture taken- which I know will be a lot! We love to document our memories :)



This past week for my Nutrisystem diet was really great. I am down 2.2 pounds for a total of 13.6 pounds! I am super pleased with myself. One thing I have been really awesome at this past week is drinking my water. No doubt I am getting the recommended amount each day. The majority of it I do drink plain (which is so boring to me), but I do allow myself to have one bottle of water with some sort of calorie free flavor. Market Pantry (at Target) has really good grape, and the Dasani mixers are awesome too! It kind of gives me something to look forward to, and I think of it as a treat for myself! Whatever works, right?!?

I am super excited to keep continuing on this awesome journey! It feels good to finally be losing weight the right way as opposed to all the other times I have shed weight! 

I am an official #NSNation Blogger and have received Nutrisystem for free in exchange for my honest opinion of the program. All opinions and thoughts expressed are my own and 100% honest.

  2. I am so proud of you and your weight loss journey! I have a hard time drinking eater, too, and find adding something fun in every once in awhile helps, too. Here's to getting (and staying!) fit;) P.S. I miss you!
