Y’all, I am EXHAUSTED! The past week has just been insanely busy! As I mentioned in a blog post last week, W and I had back-to-back wedding weekends. We caught the red eye to New Orleans last weekend and it has just been a whirlwind since then! Parties, crawfish boils, rehearsal dinners, weddings, full week of work, weddings, and wedding showers! Yeah, this past week has been no joke! Don’t get me wrong, it has been the most fun seeing and celebrating friends and family but this girl needs a break (and some sleep!)
We were in Austin this past weekend and it was beyond nice to be home. There’s just nothing like it. However traffic has become INSANE! Y’all we missed the bus to the rehearsal dinner because traffic was so bad getting to the hotel! What stinks even more is that we missed the bus by just a few minutes! We literally saw it leave as we were pulling up and I was like “Oh god, I think that was our bus!” Saw after a mini meltdown and a $30 Uber later, we made it! Huge props to W for getting me there because I would of given up otherwise!
We shot this look while we were in Houston this past week and it’s one of my favorite shoots to date! I had heard about this Biscuit paint wall and seen it over social media for a few years now so it was so fun to finally go see it in person! If you live in Houston or are planning a trip to go soon, I highly recommend stopping by! It’s great for a photo opp and the Biscuit store is the cutest home store! So do not only stop by for the photo but I highly recommend browsing in the store!
I decided to wear all black to really pop against the wall. I wanted to do this shoot to feature the wall more so than what I was wearing, which is definitely a first! But y’all this top is seriously one of my favorites ever. I swooped it up from Zara last year and it’s definitely a closet staple and will absolutely still be on trend for this summer! Off-the-shoulder tops/dresses are everywhere this season so I recommend stocking up on them!
I hate wearing strapless anything because I feel that I have broad shoulders and I just feel like a huge football player in them. So you will never catch me wearing a strapless top or dress! So that’s why I love OTS so much because I can show off my shoulders in a slimming way and not feel so “beastly.”
I’m off to go make that much needed second cup of coffee. I hope y’all have a fabulous week! I’m excited to finally be home again (although it’s a complete mess) but there’s nothing like sleeping in your own bed after being away so long J
