Happy Tuesday everyone! So glad that I survived Monday! Last weekend, I went to a bachelorette party! I decide to wear this off the shoulder dress to the party! Not only was it comfy, it was so much fun to wear. I do not wear off the shoulder dresses very often, so I broke this one out! 
Have a great day!

Happy Thursday! This week Elle and I are styling neutrals! I just love neutrals. This is because they always look good! I wore this outfit this past Friday for date night! We went to dinner and saw movie. It was an easy and simple look! 
Also, my hair is also 6 inches longer. This past week I finally decided to take the plunge and replace my extensions. I wore extensions a few times before. I also wore them at my wedding. The problem is that I lost them after that point. I finally decided to replace them and put them in on Friday. Such a fun change than my usually look! Since this picture they have been trimmed up, so that they blend a little better. Be on the look out for more posts with them!
