March Happenings + Some Favorites

These months just seem to go by faster and faster. Good thing that winter is coming to an end (hopefully soon). Can’t wait for these busy, but super fun, warm months to come. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

I went to the Rihanna concert with some girlfriends. I just love her, and she is absolutely gorg. She had half her head shaved and still looked incredible. Only she could pull that off though. Although I am still upset she is back with Chris Brown…

One of my best friends, Allie, asked me to be her bridesmaid a few weekends ago. She will be a gorgeous bride, and I cannot wait to stand up next to her! Of course she had such a creative and cute way to ask us too. The “will you be my bridesmaid” was stamped on fabric and wrapped around a little wooden spool and tied up with lace and fabric flowers in the colors of her wedding. She also gave us an inspiration card with fabric swatches to help pick out our dresses. Her colors are yellows and lace (textures and patterns welcome too). I’ve been browsing a few on Pinterest lately, but this one and this one are tied for my favorite so far.bridesmaid

I also finally got to give her the engagement gift I got her her and John – this cocktail recipe book and these mr + mrs drink glasses. I am obsessed with the cocktail book though. I might have to buy myself one. I wanted to put it all in a cute basket with ingredients for one of the cocktails, but that doesn’t exactly travel easily back to NYC.

I finally was able to convince Evan to upgrade our bedding. This is huge step and it took a lot of convincing. He actually cares about stuff like that, and I had to show him numerous pictures to convince him. This picture finally won him over though, and we bought this duvet and these sheets. Now if I could only get him to agree on a new bed frame. No more bachelor-looking decor!! We are still waiting on the king sham, but you get the idea of what it looks like. Also, I totally understand our room may be a little too blue at this point. We’ll most likely paint our next bedroom a light gray (imagine that, huh?).

Also, linking up with Lauren today for High Five for Friday. Here are five things currently on my wish list for Spring.

5fridayfavs_4.5one – The cutest bathing suit from Anthropologie.
two – Kate Spade’s newest fragrance Live Colorfully. Need asap.
three – Michelle Armas painting. I must have one of her paintings…even if I can’t afford an original.
four – The cutest letterpress coasters for my coffee table from Society Social.
five – Kate Spade clutch/shoulder bag. I am clearly on a Kate Spade kick lately.

 Happy Friday everyone – enjoy your weekend!
