Nearly three months ago I got married!! And seriously I can’t even believe it’s been that long already, but here we are.
To be completely honest, married life doesn’t feel all that different for Evan and I, primarily because we had already been living together so we didn’t have any huge changes after the wedding (besides the fact that we moved into a larger apartment!)
Our wedding was an absolute dream. We had it at Big Spring Farm in Lexington, VA and it was exactly how I had pictured it and I say “I” because Evan left virtually all of the planning up to me. Of course, he had a bit of input, but let’s get real — this was my vision. Haha
We even lucked out with the weather! It rained briefly (like 10 minutes) during the cocktail hour and a little bit during our sparkler exit, but the rest of the day was sunny and gorgeous!
The honeymoon is on hold until next year, but we’re planning on going to Iceland. Can’t wait!!
Life has been crazy lately. I got married several weeks ago and last weekend, my husband and I moved to a new apartment. #adulting
Hopefully, we’ll get all of our wedding photos soon, so I can post them here for you all to see! In the meantime, I’ll be featuring another Christy Dawn dress — the Bergen.
I’m in love with Christy Dawn’s designs and in October, I’m going back to California and I’ll finally be able to visit her store in Venice!! I’m not one to get super excited about celebrities, but if I meet Christy Dawn I will totally freak out. Actually, if she’s in her store, I’ll probably just walk out because I’ll be too nervous. Ahhh!
If you’re not familiar with Christy’s designs, everything is made from deadstock materials (unused material left over by other designers or fashion houses.) Her focus used to be solely dresses, but now she makes jumpsuits too and I’m in heaven. I could live in jumpsuits!
This dress is the Bergen and it is the most perfect wrap dress! It is a tad shear, but that can easily be fixed with a slip or a seamless romper from Free People. The fabric is actually the same that Flynn Skye had used in some of her more recent designs. I love this dress so much that I actually just got another one. Christy is always killing my bank account, but if I’m truly honest with myself…I really don’t mind.
So it’s been quite a while since I’ve been on my blog and it’s because I’m getting married in less than three weeks!! Ahhhh, I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by!
Three weeks from yesterday, Evan and I will be married. I will be Kaitlyn Beemer! Since our wedding is so close, I’ve been crazy busy working on last minute details, creating a seating chart, re-visiting the venue with our day-of coordinator. There is so much going on and though I am so excited to be married, I am also excited for the busyness and stress to end.
Evan and I did finally make time to get our engagement photos taken. I mean, since we did them about a month before our wedding they’re more like couple photos at this point, but I am still so excited to share them with you.
Our photographer Ashley is absolutely amazing. She takes her photos with film and has an innate ability to capture the natural light. The photos came out better than I could have even expected. Initially the day was supposed to be cloudy and rainy, but as we got closer to our photo destination the sun came out and it was in the 70s! It was just perfect
I realize I’m a little behind on this whole Oscars best dressed thing, but better late than never right? I wasn’t as impressed with the red carpet as I had hoped to be. There were so many disappointing looks, like Amy Poehler, Jennifer Garner and Kate Winslet. I wasn’t even as fond of Brie Larson’s blue gown. While I did love the color, I didn’t like the ruffles flowing down the skirt. That just killed it for me.
But there were some dresses that didn’t disappoint. I’ve included those looks below along with my favorites from the Vanity Fair Oscar Party as well (so you may see a few people twice.) Enjoy!
I am far from a wild child. I’m the exact opposite really. I enjoy staying in, relaxing on the couch and watching TV. I’m not one to party. I don’t drink (mainly because I just don’t like the way any alcohol tastes) and I have never done drugs. The title of this post references the jacket I’m wearing — the Wild Child Jacket from Flynn Skye.
It just so happens this jacket is on sale through midnight tonight too! Unfortunately the exact pattern I have is not on sale, but there are still a lot of other floral patterns that are just as beautiful!
The weather is starting to warm up here in Fairfax and I just can’t wait for Spring! While the temperature has been spring-like lately, I’m waiting for all of the leaves to come in and the flowers to bloom. Then I’ll really be happy! And do you know what else is happening this Spring?! I’m getting married!!! Just a little over two months from now.
More on that later, for now let’s get back to today’s outfit. These shorts are some of my favorites. I actually got four pairs for $20 at the Rose Bowl Flea Market two years ago. I had to sort through several hundred pairs, and try them on right out in the open (but not to worry, I had one of Free People’s seamless rompers on so I was able to slip the shorts on over that.) The only thing is this pair is a little cheeky, as in you can see the bottoms of my butt cheeks. Some may be okay with the look, but it makes me self-conscious so I basically have to wear them over tights. But I can live with that!
