My cute cousin got engaged last week and I am so so thrilled for her and her fiance. She grew up here in San Diego and moved to Nebraska a few years ago for love (insert heart eye emoji here). It was super hard to watch her leave and it has been difficult having her so far away, but she came for a visit a few weeks back and she is so stinkin' happy that it's contagious. She has made quite the life for herself there and nothing makes my heart happier than to see her happy. I can't wait to help her plan this wedding even if it is from afar. She and T met on Instagram so I'm definitely hoping for some Insta inspired touches!

I am not huge on bold stripes, especially not horizontal ones but when this dress arrived the other day I was smitten. The mix of stripes make it so much more interesting and we all know how much I love a good swing dress. The halter-like neckline is very flattering, but the added strappy details in the back really top it off just right. It is a crepe-like material, so it is great for travel as it won't highlight wrinkles. I paired it with a comfortable pair of black wedges for a not-so-dressy date night look as well as my little black clutch.

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
