Wedding Recap: San Antonio Edition

Hi Friends!

Last weekend I was in my 13th wedding. Yes, you read that correctly. Lucky number 13!

I grew up with the bride, Judith, in San Antonio and this weekend was an affair to remember! Sharing all the iPhone pics, deets on what I wore, and where I was!

Rehearsal Dinner

The rehearsal dinner was at La Fonda on Main, a perfect venue for a summer soiree!

Getting Ready

My mom and Megan’s mom hosted our getting ready party on Saturday at the Cellars at the Pearl. It was enough space for all of us to nurse our margarita headaches with some breakfast tacos and chick fil a, while the makeup and hair peeps helped us put our best faces forward

Feeling’ Fly at FlowerVault

Hey and Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Last month, I ventured back to San Antonio and got to check out FlowerVault, the walkable floral rooms of one’s dreams. Here are a few photos from our time spent there!

For anyone interested in going, a few tips: Buy your tickets in advance, don’t go super early on a Saturday (it was PACKED!), and go with the flow. There’s a lot of people in there at once and everyone wants a good, Insta-worthy shot so be flexible, be kind, and smile at others who are out there flexin’ their photo skills.

Be sure to stop back on Thursday, where I’m sharing my favorite look from our time spent at FlowerVault and here’s a hint, this look is straight up BLOOMing ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fiesta Forever

Happy May, beauties! San Antonio has its own version of Mardi Gras, better known as Fiesta. What do you know about Fiesta? Now, I don’t live in San Antonio anymore, but that didn’t stop me from investing in a new embroidered dress to celebrate the occasion. It’s a good thing Cinco de May is coming up, and who isn’t celebrating that?

Lady in Red (insert red dress emoji girl)

I am feeling gone with the wind fabulous, honey!

This amazing red dress really does it for me y’all! It’s swooshy, pleated, has amazing details, and pops against this pale skin and blonde hair. I also KNOW, with zero hesitation, that it would look good on ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE, every shade and shape would benefit from a dress like this.

My gal pal/photographer extraordinaire, Caroline Behrens, told me to let loose and and I think it’s fair to say, based on these silly and happy expressions I’m sporting, that I did. Walking around, I received lots of heart eyes and I know it was only for my dress!

You can get your own poppy and pleated dress for yourself! I’ve linked it below!

This dress just screams CONFIDENT to me and, today, I need that extra pep in my step as I start a new job in Corporate America. I am so excited and obvs nervous, so send me some good vibes while I try to channel the going-for-it girl in these photos ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love y’all, mean it, Liza

Vibrant Pink Top and a Red Lip

I have to be honest about something.

In the past, I never really liked mixing primary colors with pastels.

HOWEVER, I have matured and grown to LOVE mixing different color palettes.

This pink top is AMAZING and just makes me happy. I may or may not have also gotten it in a blue gingham.

The Good Squad

Happy Humpday, beautiful people!

As Fall starts to approach, I think it’s important we talk the D-word. Yes, I’m talking about denim, y’all!

I always love a good deal and forever21 and Old Navy are great places to shop (the Rockstar jeans from ON are great!). But I’m always willing to spend a little more for good, long-lasting jeans. I hit the JACKPOT when Khloe Kardashian released her line, Good American.

Good American. Size inclusive, diverse washes and styles. They feel like Spanx and suck me in. I was SOLD. Plus, Nordstrom carries them so bring on all the Nords points.

There are so worth the price and no more expensive than any other designer brand of jeans. A tip about sizing, if you are a 0-10, go down a size, if you are a 10+, I’d size up! Hope that helps y’all. My whole look is linked below!

Liza in Wonderland

Happy Monday, y’all!

On my recent trip to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, photographer Caroline Behrens and I came across these giant Adirondack chairs.

I was immediately drawn to their bright colors and felt a little bit like Alice in Wonderland.

Scroll through for a gingham look with pom pom accents! This dress is available in both regular and curvy for only $38!

The Floral Duster Dreams Are Made Of

Happy Thursday, you beautiful people!

Living in Texas doesn’t always require layering (especially when you are in San Antonio or Houston). I was in an off the shoulder top and barefoot on Christmas Day last year (hello global warming)! So I keep it pretty easy and flowy when it comes to light layering.

Like this floral duster. Throw it over a v neck tee or tank and you just elevated the look!

Also, if you haven’t noticed, I love to mix high and low pieces I like to save my money for the investment staples of my wardrobe (i.e. good denim and high-end bags), so it doesn’t hurt that my gemini necklace is on sale for less than $24 and my flat zip double strap flats are $17.50! All is linked for you below!

Pink Lady

Pink Lady

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

I can’t believe it is already August. Where has Summer gone?

Pink is obviously one of my favorite colors and how could it not be, when it looks good on any skin tone or paired with any hair color?

I thought pairing this pink top with my Lele Sadoughi watercolor crystal Lily earrings would be a good combination, and with some fun lucite sunnies, I think I was correct.

Scroll down to see the whole look! Plus, this top is only $13 (I also have it in navy and may or may not have just ordered it in the other two color options too)!
