I was long overdue for an adventure with @jessica_s_pappu, but going on @jarvisthegemini’s first hike made up for the fact that we were supposed to be in Colorado this weekend. 😍

I was long overdue for...

The real winner of quarantine... @jarvisthegemini. He’s been getting all the love and affection from us, I think he’s over it. 
It’s great having a dog right now. He keeps me company while @sammen89 has to work from home, instead of my extroverted self getting lonely. How are you guys doing?

#TBT. Any other extroverts going stir-crazy?

Back from when I was allowed to go outside. This was last month actually. I was hiking a lot as I prepare to (hopefully) make it up a 14er in CO with my outdoorsy other-Jessica @jessica_s_pappu. I was doing well for about 75% of this hike but that last stretch back took a lot out of me. 
Fun fact, for being from Texas I actually DON’T hate the cold. Cold + wind is a different story though.

Back from when I was...

I work in one of the industries heavily affected by the virus. For the first time in at least a year I had a job I loved going to, a company I believed in, and an industry that I’ve always wanted to work in. I loved my team and I felt like I belonged. Now, I’m furloughed, stuck at home until who knows when. I know it’s only temporary but it still sucks. This pause has forced me to do something I hate doing, to slow down. I hope you and yours are staying healthy and taking this time to focus on the important things: each other. Stay strong.

I work in one of...

Slowly working my way back to that “influencer” life. 🥴

Fun fact, I always HATED being called that. It often gets used synonymously with people that are shallow or are just self-centered, only caring about how things looked. I’ve been there. I’ve been where I planned on what to do based on “how it looks.” I’ve been depressed when my posts didn’t do as well as I thought they should. I spent money on outfits that I’d wear once, or plan outfits to wear in public based on what I’d be posting. I took it personal when I saw my follower count decrease. Eventually I’d had enough of my mental health tied to social media. I cleaned up 15000 “ghost” followers, people that followed me for giveaways or other reasons and didn’t ever actually care about my content, leaving people that I thought actually cared (and still lost about 1k). I’m definitely still learning the balance, and I often just lean towards not posting anything, instead of posting to have a post for the day or keep my content on your feeds. If you notice long gaps between my posts, that’s what’s going on. Quality//Quantity ☺️

Slowly working my way back...

Apparently between me, KP, and Dončić, only one of us will be showing up to the Mavs//Hawks game 😂 (swipe right) #MFFL

Apparently between me, KP, and...

Don’t let the shoes fool you, I’m still 5’1(ish)”

The Dress – Wedding Wednesday

It’s another wedding Wednesday!! Today we’ll be looking at my dress.

 

The Dress

 

If the option is to choose trendy or timeless, I will always pick timeless. My wedding dress was no exception. I wanted to be able to look back on my wedding pictures with my future daughter and not have to explain what was “in fashion” in 2013. People always tell me I can rock anything (clearly they have’t seen me in orange or brown… bleh), but I’m also not a fan of overwhelming textures (I’m a really petite 5’2″ XXS), so a poofy ballroom dress was out. I didn’t want to look like a wedding cake (that IS why there is a wedding cake after all) so no ruffles or flowers.  No overly sparkly rhinestones either, this isn’t a pageant or prom. I was iffy on lace dresses because I didn’t want to look too matronly (kiss of death in my book) or like a tablecloth. On top of all that it had to have some sort of sleeve  (to appease the stringent dress code that was religiously enforced), I wasn’t going to sew on sleeves to the dress after we bought it (no matter what it looks a little conflicting that way, and my perfectionist self would always see it). I wanted to try the dress on and only have minor alterations….

I tried this dress and I KNEW it was the one. The dress comes from Allure Bridals Couture collection. It’s all over lace with amazing beading all over the dress and a chapel length train. It has a trumpet silhouette which complimented my tiny figure, and cap sleeves.  I love the extra beading and the low back, but the icing on the (wedding) is the scalloped lace on the edge of the dress. I only had to get it hemmed and the shoulders shortened a little. Minus not having a tiara (which I find incredibly tacky for a wedding anyways) I looked like a princess, but of course I am 24/7. 🙂

Be fearless,
