Happy Saturday, friends!

I’m still getting over this upper respiratory infection so I’m resting up and working on blog content. I wanted to share this look, because I am LOVING lace right now. I’ve linked several options for lace tops that are all reasonably priced. Plus, the dress version of my top is available here.

Even though these pants are velvet, and it’s now March, it looks like it’s not warming up here anytime soon, these ones are only $25! Get ’em while the getting’s good.

A Flirty Dress

Y’all! Rehearsal dinners. Let’s talk about ’em. This is such a fun event in wedding season. Speeches are happening, drinks are flowing, pictures are being posted with the official wedding hashtag. So what do you wear when you’re a curvy guest? I’ve got the perfect look.

This off the shoulder dress in marigold is the perfect thing! It’s fitted, it’s off the shoulder, and it’s a lightweight fabric.

Tried and True in a Pretty Blue

Hey y’all!

As promised, today starts the first of three looks for wedding season. I’ve got something for three big events for any friend’s upcoming nuptials. First, is a bridal shower look that is in the prettiest shade of blue you’ve ever seen.

I love how flattering this dress is. It’s the perfect length on my 5’4″ curvy frame.

The Sisterhood of the Busy Schedules

With it being the week of Valentines AND Galentine’s, I think it’s time we talk about the F word. Yea, that’s right. Friendship.

Now that I’m 30, my friendships have changed. Some have ended, some are stronger than ever, and some are new and still growing. The season that we’re in doesn’t allow for lounging with the girls very often. We have to plan (often way in advance). We’re busy, we’re working away, and we’re blooming into the adults our parents hoped we’d be. AND WE ARE TIRED (no one tells you how tired you’re going to be).

I went to lunch with three of my gal pals on Sunday and it got me thinking. As the days of our lives go off in various directions, how do we stay connected? Invested? One of us is about to have a baby, another is engaged, and the third bought the cutest fixer upper. Yet here we are, catching up over wine (and a mocktail for mama) and laughing about jury duty horror stories and talking through what the next few months look like.

Here’s just a few tips for staying connected with your bests at this stage of life:

  1. Give yourselves something to look forward to! Is it a girls getaway? Maybe a spa day. Okay, let’s settle on brunch. A study just recently came out that said women with a friend group that spend time together IRL live longer.
  2. Snail mail. I think letter writing is becoming a dying art. My friends and family know that I LOVE TO SEND MAIL. I have a drawer full of cards for whatever the next occasion is going to be. Let your friends (both near and far) know you’re thinking of them.
  3. Call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me. We’re so quick to send a text, comment on the latest Insta (yes, keep doing those things), but when was the last time you called your best friend to check in? FaceTimed? Hearing someone’s voice or seeing their face gives another layer to your communication, your connection. You can hear the tone in someone’s voice, see the expression of laughter on someone’s face. It’s a beautiful thing. Pick up the phone!

Above all else, find ways to support one another, even when you’re in bed by 9 with a facemask on.

And for that next meet up with your besties? I’ve got the PERFECT look!
