Missing in Action - Updates Galore!

I have no idea if anyone still reads my posts or not, if anyone's been wondering where I've been, what happened to me, if I was dead (I'm not!) but there has been much going on in my little life.

To make a very long, very depressing, and yet happy, tale shorter... My husband told me he wanted a divorce in May, we separated June 22nd, and I reconnected with an old friend who I am now dating. My divorce will *hopefully* be final in late December. It's a happy thing, I promise. I did my grieving and I went through all of the emotions, but I'm so much happier now, living with my bestest friend ever and dating a very sweet, loving, amazing man who loves the hell out of me. Tomorrow I turn 24, and I would have never imagined myself where I am now at 24. I thought my life would be completely different but I wouldn't change anything, not even the marriage/divorce, which caused me so much pain, because it's all led to this amazing life I have now.

SO! My ex never really supported my blogging, and my BF doesn't really have a say/I don't think he'd really care, so I'm going to start blogging again. I've missed it terribly and I really want to dig back in again, when I have time. I have a clothing haul post in the works that I hope to get up within the next week. I can't guarantee that I'll post every week, but I'm aiming for at least once a month. I'm also going to refresh my blog design some too. Ever since my separation period started I've been feeling the zebra print. ;)

Cheers to a most happy life!
A

See how happy we are?!

Disappearing act...

Hey y'all,

In case you were wondering... I know it's been almost a week of inactivity and I promise I haven't disappeared. My husband's grandfather is in the hospital, his heart is deteriorating basically and so this past week has been C.R.A.Z.Y. I also found out that I got the second part time job with Old Navy, woohoo! Still searching for a full time job though...

So anyway, that's what's up with me. I'm hoping to get the next wedding post up on Wednesday since I'm off, so you can look forward to that! :)

Stay beautiful!
April

PS, took a chance and found out my new haircut looks good curly too, thank goodness!!

{ What to Wear to a Wedding } Semi-Formal Edition

Hello my lovelies! I hope you had a great weekend and a good Monday (as good as Mondays can be at least!).

Today is part two of the What to Wear to a Wedding series. (Part one, informal, can be found here) And for me, semi-formal is the HARDEST. It's so ambiguous, the ugly step-child between informal and formal. Hopefully, I can help you navigate these choppy waters.


{ Semi-Formal Weddings }

Like I said, semi-formal events are difficult. Most experts agree that dresses or skirts should have hemlines no shorter than 1" above the knee, and no plunging necklines or overly revealing attire. Some call for "Sunday Best" if you are a Christian and attend church, you'll know what that means. It's your nicest, most conservative, piece of clothing usually reserved only for Sunday. Try to stick to classic silhouettes and single colors. Color blocking and prints are out for a semi-formal event. Wear nice shoes that aren't worn through... Duh, right?

My tips from last time still stand, but here they are again, just in case. ;)

A few tips:
  1. Don't wear white. This is obvious, but just in case (not even accessories, it's taboo UNLESS the bride specifically tells you to wear white).
  2. Wear something appropriate, no club wear, overly sexy clothing, etc. The exception is if the bride and groom are party people and have their wedding in a club, LOL.
  3. If the invitation doesn't specify formality, use your best judgement. A soft dress for daytime and a LBD (little back dress) for evening will take you far.
Here are my picks, from lightinthebox.com. I love this site specifically cause they do plus sizes as well (AND CUSTOM SIZES!!!), in all their dresses.

You can find these on my pinterest board, here
Note: You can change the color of all these dresses! If you like the style of the first one, but not the color, you can choose another color! Score! :)

Just remember to be slightly conservative, but have fun with your accessories. You can amp up the glam factor for semi-formal, just don't go crazy. 

xoxo April

{ Celebrity Style Crush } Kristin Cavallari

Hello again!

I wanted to do another quick Celeb Style Crush for y'all. I love Kristin Cavallari's style in this picture. It just speaks to my rock n roll soul. I love how she pairs a fun flirty floral (alliteration!!) skirt with tougher pieces to balance the look. Plus, the seahorse necklace is to die for. I totally loved The Little Mermaid growing up and it feels like a little piece of my childhood. :)

Original inspiration from celebstyle
Shop the pieces here:




Happy Shopping!
xoxo April

PS, so excited for my giveaway! It's almost ooooovvvveeeerrr!
