Dress Shopping

Hi my friends and fashionistas! Happy hump day!

Sooooo….I have a wedding to go to in a few weeks and I still need to find a dress. My lovely and stylish friend Becky has rented dresses from Rent the Runway in the past, and I absolutely love the dresses she has rented from them, so I thought I would look into it myself. Rent the Runway is a website where you can pay to rent designer dresses for 4-8 days.

I didn’t have a clue how much they would cost so I looked into it a bit and not only were the dresses incredibly affordable to rent (in the $40 price range for the ones I was looking at), there are so many adorable dresses to choose from!

Now, I don’t know for 100% sure that I’m going to go with this option, but if I do, I have a decision to make. I found a handful of dresses that I think are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! I wanted to see what you guys thought of them, and which one you think I should go with. I definitely have a couple of favorites, but I wanted to see what you all thought.

Check them out and comment below with the dress you like best for me!

Aren’t these so pretty? I worry a little bit about the dresses not fitting right, but what’s nice is that they allow you to borrow two sizes so hopefully one would work out!

What do you all think?!

Walks and some light jogging!

I actually went for a light and slow jog yesterday for about two miles. I cannot even begin to explain how good it felt. I am still needing to take it slow in the name of healing, but my jog was only slightly faster than walking pace so I am still taking it easy. I know better than to push myself at this point in the game.

Now that the weather has cooled off a bit and we are in the 70’s versus the 90’s, it makes outdoor running a lot more enjoyable. I may even get out for a jog this morning again!

I plan to finish off the long weekend with some more shopping. I have a super amazing event coming up so I am shopping for an outfit. More to come on that soon!

Also, I may work on a little bit of food prep. I have big plans for dinner with my lovely lady friend Kalley tomorrow. Get excited!

How was your weekend?! Any good eats I should know about?
