Thursday Love List


Happy Thursday!

Can you believe it’s already August? I’m headed back to school in three weeks, and it feels like summer just started. Even though I don’t want summer to end, I’m getting a tiny bit excited for fall fashion, colors, and weather…even though Texas fall isn’t too different from Texas summer. :P Maybe the idea of fall is why this week, I’ve been loving dramatic textured neutrals, retro-inspired details, and a touch of Southern charm.

{I love the striped bridesmaid dresses, balloons instead of bouquets, and adorable bridal bow on Southern Weddings}

{A retro swimsuit-inspired bridal shower on Grey Likes Weddings…how fun does this look?}

{How gorgeous is this BHLDN backdrop and gown? If you haven’t been on their website in awhile, I’d recommend stopping by–they’ve organized everything by color, style, and theme. I love it!}

{Some fabulously dressed guests at a Virginia Gold Cup wedding on Southern Weddings}

{I love this post on Lovely Little Details about supplies to always have on hand in order to throw a fabulous party at a moment’s notice!}

{Had to get this University of Texas favor in! It’s from the same Virginia Gold Cup wedding on Southern Weddings as I mentioned above, and it made me love the wedding even more. Hook ’em, horns!}

Also, I’m posting on Hey Gorgeous again today, about making registry gifts more personal. I would love for you to check it out!

Have a great day!
