WHERE TO SCORE THE PERFECT LITTLE WHITE DRESS

For those of you looking to track down the perfect little white dress to add to your wardrobe (which is especially ideal for engagement photo sessions or other wedding festivities), this post is for you!  I scooped this dress up from one of my favorite online retailers, Chicwish and I’m obsessed.  Aside from being so cute, it has a price tag of less than $80.00 so it’s also pretty much guilt-free.  Sharing outfit details with you below as well as some ideas in terms of how to style it for fall. Wrapping up today’s post with a quick family update. Enjoy!

IN MY HUBBY’S WORDS: OUR LOVE STORY

Blogger, RELish and her family

Along with today’s outfit of the day (a bright pink mumu because…#momlife), I’m excited to share a guest post by my hubby, Phil. I last interviewed him here about how his experience in becoming a first-time dad.  Since it looks like that post was one of your all-time favorites, my wordsmith of a husband is back today by popular demand. This time, I asked him to open up a bit about his version of our love story. Since some of you may be newer to this blog and I haven’t shared too much about how we met since our wedding posts (more here, here and here), I’m excited for Phil to get you all caught up below in his own words. 

5 SELF-CARE IDEAS TO TRY THIS WEEKEND

TGIF! The work week has been so non-stop, I couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming weekend. Weekends are always so hectic in our house–especially since Naiya came into our lives.  All week, I dream of accomplishing so many things and I’m constantly making “to do” lists.  Then, when the weekend finally hits, I’m rarely able to get through even half of my list because…#momlife. 

WIDE LEGGED PANTS + RED MOTO JACKET

Today’s outfit combines a few of my favorite wardrobe staples of the moment: red moto jackets, wide-legged pants and turtlenecks.  As a petite girl (I’m 5″4 on a good day!), I stayed away from wide legged pants for a while because I thought they would drown me and possibly make me look shorter.  That said, I recently dipped a toe in with these patterned ones (similar here and here) and I loved them so much, I’m now I am filling up my closet with more.  It turns out that high-waisted wide legged pants actually elongate petite frames–especially when paired with a nude heel. They also look great on all different body types because they cinch right at the tiniest part of your waist and they add volume to your lower-half in a good way.

SUEDE EMBROIDERED MOTO JACKET

Sharing one of my favorite recent suede moto jacket finds of the moment with you today.  The best part? It’s currently on big time sale. I’ve been a fan of moto jackets for years because they can instantly make almost any look more polished.  I wear them so much throughout the year that I always look forward to Black Friday sales where I can find the best moto jacket discounts. This year, I was so excited to find this burgundy embroidered one I’m wearing today (similar here)! I’ve been pairing it with everything ever since.
