Happy Friday! For the past month, I’ve had something to do every single weekend, so I am overjoyed to have an almost clear slate this weekend. Never underestimate the power of rest. :) With that said, I’m truly looking forward to snapping a few pictures of one of my closest friends from college and her fiancé in a local park filled with the prettiest fall foliage. Engagement photos are fun! I’ll be sure to post a sneak peek on Instagram.
A few of my favorite recent links, purchases, and inspiration:
1. Blush & Ivory Philadelphia Wedding // Junebug Weddings:

I love when friends are featured, and receiving an email saying this chic Philadelphia wedding planned by The Styled Bride was featured on Junebug Weddings made my day. I adore this bride’s style, and I love that she wore her grandmother’s veil paired with two strands of heirloom pearls.
2. The Transport Tote // Madewell:

I. Love. Bags. I cannot wait until my new Transport Tote arrives in the mail. I love its chic simplicity, and I naturally had a small monogram added in gold foil. It’s a bit more of a spurge, but I plan to use this for years and years for meetings, vacations, you name it. Professional and pretty are a win-win.
3. Birthday Gifts for Her Under $50 // Carly is Inspired:
Gift giving is my thing. However, in an effort to find something memorable and affordable, the search for a sweet gift for my closest girlfriends can become daunting and frustrating. Do you ever feel the same way? From jewelry to flowers, I realized there are 10 gifts that I turn to all the time. So, I created a top ten list of gifts under $50! I hope it’s helpful for at least one of you.
4. Bow Cake // Pinterest:

Your friends know you really well when they start messaging you perfect pins on Pinterest. I adore this bow cake! It’s pink, gold, and absolutely on brand. It’s a lovely inspiration point for a birthday or shower cake! PS: Are you following me on Pinterest?
5. Out of the Woods // Taylor Swift:
I am a huge fan of Taylor Swift. When I heard she was changing her sound and becoming a pop artist, I was so disappointed (to put it lightly). I love country, and I thought she put such a unique spin on her country sound. Plus, she’s a killer writer (something that can get lost on a pop song). But her pop music? It fits her perfectly, and her writing is still just as awesome. 1989 comes out on Monday, and I’ll be listening to the album on repeat for the next month. Join me?
Have a wonderful weekend!!
