As ladies we understand the prep time that goes into preparing for a big day. And I’m not talking about the bride- I’m talking about the bridesmaids. Even though the day is all about the bride, and rightfully so, we bridesmaids also have to look our best. The Plum Pretty Sugar bridesmaid’s robes are adorable and will make a great gift from the bride to her best ladies. Plum Pretty Sugar offers robe sets, making it easy to select a style for all bridesmaids.
Having the bridesmaids dressed alike during the prep time makes for adorable pictures. It also allows the bride to be able to stand out in her own special robe. One great thing about the Plum Pretty Sugar robes is the style. These robes can be worn again and again; the style doesn’t limit itself to wearing it for just one day. Take a look for yourself and visit their website for even more styles and apparel! http://store.plumprettysugar.com/
Did you ever wish you were brave enough to go pursue your dream? Maybe a dream that wouldn’t be easy and others claimed was not attainable? Did you ever have a best friend that shared the same dream and wanted more for you than they did for themselves?
This is Jordan+Clark. Two dreamers that had fallen in love, long before they knew it, went throughout high school together, off to college- forget college, and off to NYC! Jordan+ Clark are dreamers and what is great is that they live their dreams and share them with those that they love. Jordan + Clark are brave creative and willing to sacrifice for a dream, a dream to work and succeed. They did and they have.
Jordan+ Clark met during the summer of their 8th grade year. Jordan’s cousin introduced them, they became friends and Jordan+Clark developed a BIG crush. A crush that was bigger than church camp, and middle school days. Their crush led to them to dating throughout high school. Little did Jordan know the second boy she ever kissed would be her husband.
After high school they went on to Purdue University, Lafayette, IN. Jordan was a communications major and Clark is a construction management major, completing his degree. Jordan+Clark had BIG dreams to live in the Big Apple. They wanted to give it a whirl in NYC and they did. It wasn’t easy in NYC. Remember, dreams never are. Prices were high, living conditions were small and the two had to struggle. They knew what they wanted, survived and succeeded.
The hills of Indiana kept calling them home and soon they were back at Purdue to complete their degrees and prepare for the biggest day of their lives; their wedding.
Their wedding couldn’t be the norm. That wasn’t them. It had to be beautiful, romantic and memorable like this couple. We chose Laurel Hall for its history, beauty and magic. What a romantic setting what a great story. Jordan wanted all the femininity of lace and flowers plus candles. She loved sheer pinks and pearls. We loved her decision and made sure everything was just as she wanted. An elegant vintage wedding with all of the timeless, classic details. Jordan’s dress was breathtaking and she looked gorgeous in it. It was designed by Pronovias. Clark’s tuxedo with black bow tie made for an elegant affair. Guests loved the rich woods, stained and leaded glass, plus private gardens of the estate. We loved the intimacy, character and romance of the day.
Funny, how things all happen at once. Jordan could have graduated the day of her wedding and walked for her diploma. She walked for an MRS instead and got the BA in the mail. What a joyous occasion. Two people who had been in love forever were now walking down the aisle to happily ever after.
Well it’s here, or at least we all hope. It’s time to put away those coats and Ugg boots and bring out your bright, spring attire. If you’re anything like me, your bank account may become low due to all the cute spring clothes, accessories, and shoes. Here is a list of my MUST HAVES for Spring 2012.
- Small Crossbody purse for when you are on the go! This Marc Jacobs cross body is the perfect size and color to wear all day long, or for a night out.
- Colored Skinny jeans are soooo fun. Anyone can pull them off with flip-flops or a pair of wedges. Turquoise, red, and coral are already in my closet and very popular for spring!
- TOMS shoes are very comfy, cute, and lightweight. They are so easy to throw on with a pair of capris and still look very stylish. There are so many colors, patterns, and styles to fit your personality. Haven’t heard of Toms? Check out their website! They give a pair of shoes to a child in need one for one when you purchase them. Look cute and help out a great cause!
- Rose Gold Watches are very popular and can we worn with jeans and a shirt to your best dress and heels. Rose gold looks stunning on any skin tone and when it hits that spring time sun is absolutely gorgeous! My favorite is Michael Kors.
- Loop Scarves were very popular this winter and now are coming out in lightweight material for spring. Even with a tank, the right print pops and makes a great outfit fabulous! A great pairing with your colored jeans.
Kim and I had the opportunity to visit Anthropolgie’s new bridal store, BLHDN in Chicago this week. BLHDN pronounced Beholden, means “to keep” in dutch. The store itself was stunning and set a very classy, yet unique image. It is only the second location in the entire nation.
