love is in the air.

First, I want to talk about how much I love this sign...

After driving for almost 8 hours, it's nice to know that I will soon (still 2ish hours to go) be rewarded by seeing family and friends :)

I was driving on a Wednesday so there wasn't much traffic....Don't worry- I didn't put my life in danger by taking this picture!

Next, I have a fashion update.
I've been looking for dresses that would be wedding appropriate without also cleaning out my wallet. I browsed TJMaxx in Columbus this past weekend and found these two gems:

I wouldn't think to mix black and tan, but I like it. There's some beading along the neckline, also. I think this is perfect for my age...the slit at the top is fun, but the length and coverage (it comes all the way up to my shoulders in back) will work for teaching, too!

Like my go-to pose? haha
This one is a little fuzzy. (The picture, not the dress :-P) I like the color...it's kind of shiny when you see it in person. Like the first dress, the cut is flattering. The only issue with this one is what color shoes do I wear with it? Is mixing black and navy okay? Or should I find some nude heels? I've been on the lookout for some anyway :) Give me your feedback, ladies!!

Annnnnd, I've found my wedding shoes- also from TJMaxx.

I'm a little over 6 ft tall in them, but JD is 6'6" so it works :) I love the silver glitter, peep toe, and that I can walk in them! The soles are a tad slippery, which worries me a bit. Any tips for roughing them up so I won't slide on hardwood floor??

JD and I were in Ohio 2 weeks ago for my cousin's wedding. I didn't take a lot of pictures like a good bridesmaid should because my camera died, but here are a few.

Cute photos! I love your wedding shoes but sadly have no tips on how to make them less slippery.. I just used to use a knife and scrape the bottom. I'm sure there's a better way!

Love those dresses from TJMaxx....I definitely think you can mix black with Navy...that is what I would do.

Love the wedding shoes! You can buy some little "no slip" sticky pad things that go on the bottom of the shoe at Target by the shoes! Or else you could just take a knife and scrape the bottom!
