Desert Vibes in the Burgh

Hello friends!  So life got hectic and blogging had to take a back seat for a little while.  However, I am so happy to be back at it!  To give you the short version of the past few weeks, I moved into a new house two weeks ago (first-time home owner!!) and then kicked off wedding season the following weekend with the biggest I have ever coordinated (375 people at the super chic Hotel Monaco downtown).  Both very awesome things, but also very stressful and time-consuming - hence the blogging hiatus.  I've been thinking a lot lately about the blog and where I want it to go.  More fashion?  More Pittsburgh small business features?  More wedding articles?  More writing in general?  I'll slowly be working through the direction I want to go, but I'd love to hear your thoughts as well!  

On to fashion!  I love dresses like the one I am wearing here.  They are so easy to throw on and can be dressed up or down.  I added a turquoise necklace and fringe bag for a more festival / dessert vibe.  (Even though I am on a rooftop in Pittsburgh - lol).  

P.S. - If you need photos done, definitely check out Sarah Collins Photography - @sarahelizacollins on Instagram.  I thought I was crazy waking up at 5:30 AM on a Saturday, but the pics were well worth it!

P.P.S. - Guys, this dress is currently on sale for $21!!  And also comes in black and white!  And the shoes I am wearing are sooo comfortable and come in black as well!  I wore these so much last year that I plan on getting another pair this year!
