My Red "Wedding"

So last year I entered a contest to be on the cover of Wedding Day Magazine - Central Indiana. Long story short, I ended up winning and it was one of the most fun-filled days ever. 

Be prepared, the rest of this post is going to be picture heavy.

Leading up to the shoot, I had to go for a dress fitting in Indy - which was fun - and my mom got to accompany me to that. Then the day before they booked a hotel room at West Baden Resort in French Lick, IN for me and my cousin got to join me. This hotel was gorgeous by the way. I mean I had been to French Lick before. We used to go in the summers with my grandma and rent a condo, and I had walked around West Baden before, but never stayed inside. So we walked into the room and my cousin and I were super impressed - way nicer than we are used to...

So the next morning the madness began with hair and makeup and then the pictures began. The entire day I ran on half a Subway sandwich and a cookie so by the end of it I was starving and hungry. I wanted nothing but a cupcake and there was nowhere in the area to get one, so they ordered cake for me - so happy! Then my mom and I headed to a local wind place for some dinner - me in full hair and makeup - and I headed back to Fort Wayne. That night Nate had to help me get my hair undone and 83 bobby pins later I finally got to sleep.

Okay so now for all the pictures!

This was such a fun experience that I will never forget. It was even better since it was nothing like my actual wedding so it was truly a day of dress up and fun! I am so thankful that Wedding Day choose me to be a part of this issue and that I got to have this wonderful experience. I love getting dressed up and taking pictures - always have. Right Mom?

Thanks for reading!

Booties and leather and scarves, OH MY!

I am dreaming of fall weather, like all the time. It is the perfect time out though and I just can't wait for it to be here already. Leggings, fires, pumpkins, apples - it is kinda my favorite time of year. This year's trends are great too and my list is starting to get really long - which is unfortunate.

So far I am crushing hard on booties of all kinds and leather everything. Scarves and cute shirts are always on my list, as well as dresses and jewelry. I also can't help but want these Valentino's (even though I know I could never afford them) and a pair of over the knee boots. I am still on the hunt for the perfect leather moto jacket, so if anyone finds one let me know! 
 
As I am searching for the perfect fall staple pieces I am keeping track of them on Rack It Up. This website is pure genius. You add things that you like to your closet and stipulate when you would like to be notified - when it goes on sale, when the price drops by ___% or ___$. It is really great and helps you get the best price without checking back everyday. Check out my closet here!

Yes Carrie, we agree! #fashion

What fall trends are you crushing on? Who is ready to go shopping with me?

We are halfway to the weekend everyone, hold on!
