Friday Favs

Sep 19, 2014

Happy Friday! Here are a few favorite things that are spicing up my weekend...

This adorable umbrella ring holder from Anthropolgie that's keeping my ring safe when I take it off. It's not available online any more, but here's a similar one.
New pretty lingerie c/o Third Love (ooh lala), sparkly Louboutins c/o The Real Real, and a beautiful new fragrance, Daisy Dream, c/o Marc Jacobs.
So excited to try out Laser Fx by Dr. Brandt's Skincare! I'm trying their perfect, bright, and lift serums that target specific problems like wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin. Since I don't have wrinkles or sagging skin (phew), I think I'm most excited about the brightening serum, because I'd love to have more even-toned, radiant skin (who wouldn't?). But you can also layer on the different Dr. Brandt products, so I might just try all three! 
Adorable little plotted rosemary plant from our friends' wedding last weekend. They served as centerpieces and later as favors for people to take home, so now we have one perking up our window sill. 

Thanks to Dr. Brandt Skincare for sponsoring today's post. And thanks to you all for supporting the brands that support WTFab!

Riviera Maya, Mexico

Sep 18, 2014

Since it's almost the official last day of summer, I thought I'd share some photos of travels to warmer places from earlier this year, that I hadn't gotten around to posting. Our trip to Mexico feels like a long time ago, even though it's only been a few months. While I'm sad summer is pretty much over, we've still got a few fun trips planned for the year, including Sedona, Vegas and Boston.

Exploring the cenotes (underground caves filled with water) was such an adventure. I tried not think about the movie The Descent too much.

I've been waiting for these photos to hit the Glam Style App before I shared them on WTFab! Glam invited me to describe my workwear style at Google, and I also gave some advice on how to dress when there's no dress code (something I have plenty of experience in!). My lovely colleague and friend Bethann also shared some tips on how she keeps things stylish at YouTube.

Here's a peek below, but to read the full article and check out other stye and career advice, you can download Glam's free app here

Wedding Wednesday: Something Blue

Sep 10, 2014

wedding accessories

Wedding planning has been moving along smoothly! In just two days it'll be one year away, which means we've got plenty of time and I've been able to have fun planning one chunk of wedding necessities at a time. We just booked our photographer last week and I'm absolutely thrilled with our choice. More on that later!

As I've been starting to try on dresses, I've also been starting to to think about accessories. You know...something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Here's what I'm thinking...

Something old: A vintage clutch from my (almost) 99 year-old grandmother.

Something new: Manolo Blahniks! The classic d'Orsay style is so pretty for bridal shoes.

Something borrowed: Diamond studs from my mom. The ones pictured above are from Shane Co.

Something blue: A sapphire pendant from Shane Co.

Of course, I'll wait until I lock down the dress before I start actually picking up accessories. Although I may or may not have already scored some Manolos and Louboutins with the idea of having them as my wedding shoes. Patience is a virtue, but it's not my strong suit when it comes to shoes. ;)
