A Washington DC Wedding (part 2)

Mr. & Mrs. Moore

TGIF!  It's Friday and a 3 day weekend!  Woohoo!!!!!  Hope you all have good Labor Day plans. 
Here I am with part 2 of my DC trip.  This was thee best day there....the wedding!  I must say everything was super FAB! 

For starters we were shuttled to VA where the ceremony took place.  After driving for so long to get into DC, hubby and I were happy to be shuttled.  It was also cool to chat with some of Carol & Garyl's other friends and family.

Polka Dots (DC part 1)

Amigos!!!!  I've missed you!  I had an amazing time in DC!  Friends, family, awesome food, great sights, and best of all the union of two amazing people.  #ILOVEWEDDINGS! 

These pictures are from our 1st night there.  We were exhausted....we sat in 6hrs of traffic.  As soon as we got there all we wanted was food and wine!  We went into Chinatown for food and drinks.  I think the name of the place we went to was Bar Louie's.  I kept it casual with skinnies and a blazer.  Keeping up with the latest trend....I had to have this polka top when I saw it at Old Navy.  I keep seeing polka everywhere....right? 

I figured I would do several parts of my DC trip so I don't bum bard you with a bunch of random pictures.  Sorry for the quality of these pics but my good camera was charging, and all I had was my Iphone. 

Blazer: 10 Spot
Polka top & Clutch: Old Navy
Jeans: Levis
Sandals: Zara

Lazy Sunday

Dress - 10 Spot
Flip flops - Kohl's
Cardi - Ny & Company
Handbag - Michael Kors

Hello blog world!  Hope you all had a GREAT weekend!  I just wanted to share my lazy Sunday outfit with you dolls.  The weather has been super gorg lately......low humidity, nice breeze, BUT it's also reminding me of fall which I'm not happy about. 

I still can't believe were at the end of August.  The only good thing about it being the end of August is my upcoming mini getaway.  The hubby and I are leaving for Washington, DC this Thursday.  I can't wait to see my friend on her wedding day!  I've been super busy these past few weekends, so I haven't been able to put cute outfits together.  I was running errands all day yesterday and this dress was super easy and light weight. 

I'm not sure how many posts I will actually get in before I leave, but I promise to have LOTS of fun pics when I get back.

Florals & Metallics

How you doin? #wendywilliamsvoice! 

It's Friday which means I couldn't get any better!  I wanted to share a few pics from last night.  I went to dinner with some of my favorite ladies.  We were celebrating 2 of my close friends birthdays.  Why are my pictures pink?  Well the lighting outside the restaurant was super dark.  Gotta love those Jersey strip malls!  Anyway, the pics looked so blah that I decided to filter them.  Hope you like!

I got this cardi at Target not too long ago.  I really liked the floral pattern.  It was a nice night with low humidity, so It was perfect.

I went to the mall to pick up birthday gifts for my luvies, and of course I had to buy myself something.  I found these metallic tip flats at Forever 21 and just had to have them.  The metallic tip is a huge trend for this season.  Happy to have found these!

Tank - Forever 21
Cardi - Target
Jeans - Levis

August Birchbox

"In The Box"

Happy Hump Day!  Hope your all having a lovely day!

I wanted to share my latest Birchbox with you.  If you don't know what Birchbox is should! 

Every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples.  It's only $10 a month!   Best part is that you fill out a personal profile, so you get samples that pertain to your personal needs.  Ok so here's what I got for the month of August.

I was so excited to get a sample of this!  I have a love/hate relationship with my hair.  I love that it's versatile and I could wear it curly or straight, but its SO DRY!  I currently use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.  Do I love it?  Hmmmm, the verdict is still out.  Every time I go to Target I see this Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue, but never got around to buying it.   It's pretty pricey too....that doesn't really bother me.  I splurge when it comes to my hair, it's just that I was a little hesitant on buying yet another curly cream that doesn't work that great.  Receiving this as a sample was AWESOME! 

This smells GREAT!  I already used it twice this week. 
I was excited to not only have the curl cream but they also sent me a sample of the conditioner! #score!
Smoother feet?  Hell yes!
Birchbox says: this french lash serum is the only formula we’ve come across that intensifies our lashes with no pitfalls.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor
I already use this razor, so it was a plus to get another refill!

Well that's all folks!  In my Porky Pig voice of course!

Mellow Yellow

Hello fashion lovers!  Hope your all FAB!!!!  I have been slacking on my outfit posts lately..... I know!

I have a small trip coming up in the next 2 weeks (friends wedding) and I'm just trying to get everything finalized.  I was going to share with you my August Birchbox but I forgot it at home :( 

Instead I will share a few pics of what I wore on my latest mall trip with the hubby.  I wasn't going to post these but since I've been slacking....I figured "why not!"

I can wear cardigans ALL the time.  They are perfect for all seasons.  I just love them!  I love them in the fall belted, and their super cute over dresses too!

Cardigan & Belt - Ny & Company
Tank - Forever 21
Shorts - Old Navy
Flats - Kohl's
Necklace & Earrings - Mandee

Sorry for the out of control hair....I didn't flat iron! 

Well I'm off to have lunch!  STARVING!!!!  Enjoy the rest of your day!
