Happy Friday! I’m headed home for the weekend, and I can hardly wait…six weeks into the semester is right about time for a little change of scenery and a break from campus, don’t you think? :) I have been so excited about my blog posts over this past week, and I hope you all enjoyed them as much as I have. Ever since I got Photoshop Elements, I’ve been trying to play around with new ways to freshen up my posts, so thanks so much for any feedback thus far, and keep an eye out for more changes and updates to come! Now without further ado, here are some favorites this week.

{Fashion forward LBDs and the cutest bow pumps are an easy way to guarantee that your bridesmaids will adore what you ask them to wear. I’m on the mismatched-bridesmaid-dresses train 100%, but this look has me thinking about matching all over again! Picture by Alders Photography via Style Me Pretty}

{There is something so romantic about bridal portraits with horses, and this is no exception. Isn’t her Oscar de la Renta gown exquisite? Picture by Jess + Nate Studios via Style Me Pretty}

{Couldn’t let the week of Mardi Gras pass without a little NOLA tribute :) I think that the second line tradition needs to make its way into other states, because parading around with a jazz band after your ceremony sounds like way too much fun!

{A table covered in gold confetti is the perfect inspiration for anyone throwing an Oscars-viewing party this weekend! This tablescape was created by my favorite Austin event planner. Picture by Chad Wadsworth via Camille Styles}

A little note: Something Pretty is up to 99 facebook fans! I use the page to share blog post links, real wedding sneak peeks, and some miscellaneous favorite finds, as well as post pictures from all the real weddings and inspiration boards I feature. Will you be lucky #100? :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
