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!
I would never describe my style as sexy, but I would definitely describe this bodysuit from Reformation as such. According to the brand’s website, this bodysuit will make you feel 50-75% spicier and they weren’t kidding. I’d say I felt a bit spicy in it! Haha. (I can’t even take myself seriously saying that.)
I think this bodysuit works for me and my style because I don’t have much in the way of boobs, so it doesn’t come across as overtly sexy. I mean, there isn’t much cleavage going on in the pictures below.
By adding the floral duster from Free People and my new favorite rust booties, this outfit was just an amped up or slightly sexier version of my usual style. The only downside is that it takes a solid 10 minutes to use the bathroom because you essentially have to undress completely. But hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
I didn’t get to watch the red carpet live last night because I went to see 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (which by the way is a great movie) with my fiance, but I was checking out the fashions on my phone!
While there were several who really stole the show, overall I wasn’t super impressed with what I saw. For example, Julianne Moore always looks great, but last night that green Givenchy gown just didn’t do it for me. And Eva Longoria just looked like she was trying too hard. As for Sofia Vergara, well she looked gorgeous as per usual, I just wasn’t feeling the bright pink hue of her gown.
There were still some gowns (and a jumpsuit) that I loved. Check them out below…
