Our Las Vegas Wedding.

Hey babes! I know we’ve been married for two months (exactly today!) BUT I’m just now getting around to sharing our special day! I know, I know. -Truth be told I haven’t even printed any photos yet either. Am I a bad bride?! -LOL

Anyway, let me take you back to September 7th 2019. We flew to Las Vegas with 12 of our closest friends and family. I wouldn’t of had it any other way, it was perfect. Our group was small but it was exactly what we wanted. Intimate & relaxed. We chose the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed for our location, which is just outside of Vegas in Boulder.

Believe it or not I found the wedding planner on Instagram! They were the best! Everything was organized and very thought out. They customize everything from the flowers, cake, even what they wear to match the vibe and experience you are imagining. They really removed 95% of the stress because they take care of everything!! I’ll link both Instagram accounts below for you.

Every time I look back on our photos I tell Ryan I want to do it again! Yes, planning a wedding is stressful, and things that don’t matter bother you ( for a second) but when I look back at photos…. it takes me back to that day and the feeling I had. Just pure happiness, tears of joy & gratitude. Ryan and I walked together towards our future. No one gave me away. I wouldn’t of changed that either.

Ok, ok… I’m kinda a short and sweet type so I’ll get to the good stuff now, the PHOTOS!! I put together some of my favorites and I hope you enjoy!!

Fourth Of July!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled with great food, good vibes, and nice weather!! – We kept it pretty simple this year, mostly because we  had to work the next day, but it was a great time!

It’s been busy over here with wedding planning & work, but I had to share some of my fourth of July looks! For some reason I wanted to be festive this year -LOL.

0dfac1b7-eabf-48ce-8169-d860d381799f -How cute is this t-shirt dress from The Pink Lily Boutique! If you don’t know about this online boutique I strongly suggest you check it out! So affordable and they have something for every occasion.

I like tying a jacket around my waist to make it more defined, especially since the dress is not tight to the body. This look is super casual, but you could also dress it up. I think that’s what I love about it! Plus it’s only $36 dollars!

-Next up is this two piece amazon find! I wasn’t sure when I purchased it if I was going to like it, but I ended up REALLY liking it! Since I’m short I was concerned about the high waist making me look odd. However, I have seen so many other bloggers (of all body types) with this same bathing suit & it looks great on all of them! It comes in a lot of other colors & its only $25 dollars! – STEAL

I’ve linked below – HOWEVER the blue/white t-shirt dress is sold out so I linked the same dress in a different color!

Our Easter Weekend

– I can’t remember the last time we got together with our family for Easter. It gets so busy with everyone’s schedule that we really don’t mine -LOL. Maybe one day we will either host/ go somewhere for a visit, but until then we are perfectly fine getting away just the two of us. ( & dogs)

Naturally, we went to our favorite place, or my favorite place, Traverse City! Yes, we go there a lot and no we probably will never get sick of it. We decided to go on Saturday which was great because we had awesome weather!

Our first stop was Hop Lot for some drinks & nachos! I swear, their nachos are the best! I’ve posted some photos before of the vibe, and for some reason this time I only managed to take one photo. Oh well, there always next time. 😉

Of course, Suttons Bay Ciders was on the list as well. If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend you stop in. They have the best view. The cider is good too, but this view on a nice day….. come on.

I will say we spent most of the time in the car on Sunday. – Lol. I didn’t realize that I forgot my purse until we had already been driving for 45 mins. -Oops. Oh well, we made it through.

Side note: We ordered Chinese food for dinner on the way home and when I went in to pick it up the lady felt bad we didn’t have a party to be at. -LOL.

Thanks for hanging out guys!

Always- Tara XOXO

Friday Vibes

-If you’re anything like me you want to look cute, but be comfortable. Especially on the weekends! For the most part we’re pretty laid back when it comes to what we do. Hiking, drinking, and casual nights in with friends is our vibe. However, sometimes you want to look and feel good while doing it!!

-I have TWO looks that I am sharing with you today that I would wear for those weekend nights out!! Of course, you all know I love my black-LOL.

First up is this jumpsuit from Amazon!! That’s right, and only $20 dollars & comes in more colors! I’ll link it here.

I’m pretty short, so it’s a little long. I ordered a medium due to chest size, however I think a small would have worked, especially for a shorter length. Nothing the dryer probably couldn’t fix!

Next up is a romper from Express! Now, its from last season so it’s no longer on their website, BUT I’ll link a similar one in shape & style here. Currently on SALE TOO!!

-You could change both looks up depending on what you wanted. Create a more casual look with each by adding flats/sandals. Or dress it up with some heels and cute accessories!! I love jackets, so that’s usually my go to.

-Always, Tara XOXO
