The Engagement Party

becca-is-getting-married

Three months after we got engaged we finally had our engagement party and it was so much fun! A small group of our close friends and our siblings came together to celebrate with us and I’m so grateful! We played the “Soon to be Newly Wed Game” (hosted by Kris) and “Who knows the Bride and Groom Best?” (Hosted by Ryan’s sister Danah) and it was such a good time!

I started off my two years of “bridal-ness” by wearing all white for the occasion! Which i quickly split a red jello shot on, so i ended up changing into legging approximately 2 hours into the party…lol But at least i got a few pictures of my outfit before i ruined it!

A couple of thank yous to hand out – my lovely friend Corri was kind enough to take some pictures for us, so thank you so much! And to Kris as well, for helping with the set up and printing a fun little poster for us!

Take a look at some of the pictures and festivities below!

P.S. If you’ve noticed the bottom half of my tree doesn’t have ornaments … just remember that I have a one year old. We also don’t place our star/angel on top until Christmas Eve. ❤

Thanksgiving OOTD 2016

tgootd_header_1

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. The season is so wonderful, the traditional Thanksgiving meal is delicious and of course, you get to dress in your best fall fashion! I thought it would be fun to show off my autumn holiday attire with a Thanksgiving outfit of the day post! After all, the second best part of family celebrations is getting to pick a great outfit and dress up. (The first best part is obviously eating the holiday dinner – but fashion comes a close runner up!)

The outfit I chose feels so autumnal! A maroon dress, brown Oxford style shoes, cream knee high socks and my favorite floral scarf! The shades in the scarf and dress are some of my favorite colours ever. The dress is a light sweater material, so I know I’ll be comfortable in it all night and day, which is so important for long holiday gatherings. All in all i love the way my outfit turned out! Check out my pictures below for details!

Dress – Forever 21 – $17.90. I bought it brand new this week, so it is still in stock if you want to pick it up!)

Shoes – Call it Spring. I got them a few seasons ago so I can’t remember the price.

Socks – Clair’s – $5. Also an item i picked up this week, so you can still find them in stores.

Scarf – Stolen from my mum. It’s from a looong time ago, so i have no clue where it is from or how much it costs.

I’ve already gone over the reasons why Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday in this post, so I’ll keep it short and sweet this time. Thanksgiving is the only fall holiday we’ve got, so you have to make the most of showing off your autumn fashions! This is what I’ll be wearing this year to my sit-down large (20+? ppl) dinner. I do have another lunch, after a game of golf, but that outfit is substantially less cute, and usually covered in mud!

I try to wear something from my collection of vintage to every family event. Why? Because all my vintage used to belong to my family members, and it seems to make them happy to see it getting a second life. This year I chose a great skirt, in those autumn colours that were so prevalant in the 70’s. Paired with a simple deep shirt, brown boots, and hat, the skirt steals the show.
