A Dose of "Best Wishes"...

Two weeks ago my best friend got engaged while vacationing in Turks and Caicos! Amazing right? We had a hunch he would be proposing so of course I was soooo anxious the entire weekend waiting for the good news! I'm so extremely happy for them!

 The ring suits her perfectly and is even more gorgeous in person!

Obviously a celebration was in order. The following weekend we enjoyed dinner and drinks at Olive and Ivy. If you've never been, I recommend visiting when the weather is nice. They have a gorgeous patio overlooking the Scottsdale waterfront.

Love these ladies!

Because they knew we were celebrating, the waitress brought us some delicious desserts. She told us about a lil old wives tale that goes something like this...You always say to a bride-to-be, "best wishes", never congrats, because congrats is used for when you win something, and he's already won you. Can I get an awwww!? So cute huh? Have any of you ever heard that saying before?

I love you Erica! I can't wait for all the exciting planning to start!!

Would You Wednesday?

For me, these days it's about dressing as cool and comfortable as possible. Enter, palazzo pants! They're light, they're airy and closely resemble pajamas.. so I'd say they are just about perfect! My problem is finding a pair long enough to wear with a cute wedge. :( So I'm still searching! What about you? Are you a fan of palazzo pants?

Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear palazzo pants for summer:
 Pair them with black and a chic tote for a more work appropriate look.
 Or a simple white tee for the weekends.
 How about some killer heels and a bold necklace for a girls night out?
Or try adding another trend, a crop top. This is perfect for a vacation getaway!

Hope these ideas tempt you to give palazzo pants a try! Have a wonderful week ladies!
