Engagement Pictures

Topshop

This coming Sunday Jason and I have our engagement photo shoot. I am beyond excited to finally have some professional pictures done with him and to meet the photographer. ( He will be shooting our wedding also ). I have spent the past couple weeks browsing around for dresses and ordering online. I think I may have purchased 5 so far and I’m headed to the store Friday for one last look!…I only need 2 outfits for the shoot but you never know how things will look in person so I wanted to have options. Here are some of the dresses that gave me inspiration.

Color Blocking

by fromsugarwithstyle

Color blocking is one of my favorite trends this season. I love it because it’s a great way to add pops of color to your wardrobe ( although it can also be done with more neutral tones ) and makes a dramatic statement with minimal effort. I also like that its a look that can be incorporated in any setting, Try pairing a great  color block shoe with your classic slacks at the office, or a bright skirt for a night out with the girls…also a bold bracelet can turn up the volume on a simple ” meet the parents” dress.

Guest Posting and Dress Shopping

by fromsugarwithstyle

Today I am heading out to my first dress shop to look at wedding dresses! I have never even tried on a wedding dress before so I am both excited and a bit nervous. I have always had this dream dress that I made up in my head and I’m terrified that I won’t find one nearly as perfect in real life. Do people really just know the dress is the ONE when they try it on??? I’m hoping that this happens for me because I tend to be very indecisive and change my mind a lot. ( My mom can testify to that. She hated school clothes shopping with me for that reason! )….Actually the more I type this out the more excited I become! I have been browsing the internet for months looking at dresses and I am slightly in love with a couple that I am going to see today! Wish me luck!

Also yesterday I had a guest posting over at CreativeKristi.com all about what to wear at a blog conference! Check it out!

Mint Green

by fromsugarwithstyle

Even though winter is still in full gear I cant help but love the light colors of spring. Maybe it’s because where I live in California it has yet to dip below 70 during the day and lighter clothes just seem appropriate. Or it could be that I spend so much time looking at bright wedding colors they have slowly started creeping into my wardrobe. Either way mint green is becoming one of my coveted colors of choice. It’s so fresh and crisp and since it’s still unique color it adds something unexpected to an outfit. Here are some of my favorite mint green items.

Pink

by fromsugarwithstyle

Pink is one of those colors that almost every girl had as a favorite when they were little. I was no exception. I grew up with my walls painted a pale baby pink and easily chose my clothes in different pink shades. Now that I’m older my clothing choices have gotten a bit more sophisticated but I still love adding a pop of bright pink to outfits to really make a statment…These are a few pieces that when not warn all together can be a bold addition to your wardrobe.

Golden Globes- Best Dressed

by fromsugarwithstyle

As every awards show goes the morning after is full of people talking about the best and worst dressed of the night. I am all for giving people props for wearing something fabulous but I am not into knocking people down for wearing something they loved. This is why I only will post my BEST dressed choices of the night.

IRO

by fromsugarwithstyle

Sometimes when I need a little fashion inspiration I go looking for designers and brands that I am unfamiliar with and browse their collections. Most of the time the ones I fall in love with are completely out of my price range but they still tend to excite me about trends I could add into my wardrobe or unique ways I could wear things I already have….I fell a bit behind with IRO and had never looked at their collections until a couple of days ago. I feel in love with just about all of their pieces. Although completely not in my budget I did enjoy getting some ideas! Here are some of my favorites.IMG SRC=”

Practicing What I Preach- Socks

by fromsugarwithstyle

According to my 31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe-Socks post ( seen here ) there are certain socks and tights that are must haves for your closet. This is my second post detailing that I do practice what I preach and don’t just write about it!. This is a picture of my sock wardrobe that is absolutely essential to my closet ( or in this case, dresser ). As I have said before a wardrobe has to start from the bottom up and putting on a nice, clean, appropriate pair of socks when needed is a necessity that is often overlooked.

Perfect Pumps

by fromsugarwithstyle

For years I searched long and hard to find the perfect pair of nude pumps. It seemed that all the ones I could find were either uncomfortable, really expensive or suede ( which I have too many pairs of in other colors ). This past summer I finally stumbled upon the perfect pair. They are easy to walk in, the perfect color and made out of a perfectly polished patent leather.

I get so much wear out of these shoes ( also seen here ) I am debating buying another pair just in case these get scuffed.
