One month from today, my BFF will be getting married. This past weekend we had her wedding shower and I decided to go for the Emma Pillsbury look (really I just felt like a cupcake.) I received this dress, courtesy of eShakti, a few months ago. I have been super excited for the weather to finally be warm enough to wear it. The dress was custom sized to my body and let me tell you- it is A-MAZ-ING! I am highly impressed with the quality of the dress and how the custom sizing (which I was super nervous about) fit me perfectly. It is a thick chambray material which makes it feel like it is really made to withstand a lot of wear. The bow detail at the neck adds just the right amount of flair. I know that this will be my go-to summer casual event dress. So, needless to say I am very impressed with eShakti and will most definitely order from them again. (These opinions are solely my own and I am in no way affiliated with eShakti.)

Don't those photos look great? I had a little help on them...thanks B*F (wahaha)! ;)

I'm getting very excited about the BFF's wedding! There is still so much to do!
And still 5 pounds to lose ;P
By the way, have I mentioned that I've lost about 16 pounds so far? It's coming off super slowly but I'm happy with the progress so far.

I hope everyone is enjoying June!

Don't Ever Let Life Pass You By

Hello pretties! I hope you are all enjoying the start of summer! I know I sure am! We wrapped up our school year this past week and while I will certainly miss this year's kiddos, I'm excited for a new group in the fall. So, in honor of summer starting, I decided to rock my new sunnies and espadrilles!
