J: The Weddington Way bridesmaid style challenge couldn’t have come at a better time. As you know, I’m right in the middle of planning a wedding and L is my Matron of Honor! We haven’t started shopping for bridesmaid dresses yet (life is BUSY), so this was a great way to get my wheels turning on what look I’m going for. Behold:

Our wedding is at 7PM and black tie optional. This sleek, classic look totally fits the bill. Add a pop of color on the lip and voila! Perfection.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Be sure to check out the latest bridesmaid dresses from Weddington Way here.

spring fragrances.

Spring is in full force here in Georgia, and we could not be more excited (though we could definitely do without the pollen). The dawn of a new season always inspires us to switch up our fragrance, and this spring we are craving light, fresh scents. Here are some of our faves.

Kate Spade Twirl: J received a sample of this in her Birchbox and immediately fell in love. This scent is emblematic of the Kate Spade brand: cheerful, fun and flirty.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino: We have both been wearing Tom For Black Orchid for YEARS, so it’s no surprise that we are obsessed with his latest, Neroli Portofino. One spritz and you’ll feel like you’re on the Italian Rivera.

Viktor & Rolf Flower Bomb: There’s something so fresh about this scent. Light and not-at-all over powering…just gorgeous. It’s similar to J’s old faithful, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh: Marc Jacobs knows fragrance (among other fabulous things); his various scents are always best-sellers. Eau So Fresh is totally spring-y and sweet.

1. Purchase the Beauty To Go Fragrance Sampler For Her from Sephora.

2. Sample Sephora’s most popular scents.

3. Choose a favorite.

4. Redeem a roller ball at no additional charge.

Winter. Spring. Summer. Fall. Doesn’t matter. Your eyes need shade all year long! Not sure what shape flatters your face? Read on for our tips:


1. Square Face: To minimize the sharp angles on your face, go for frames with curves that will add softness to your face. Recommended styles: Cat-eye, oval and round.

2. Round Face: Opt for sunglasses with frames wider than or equal to the broadest part of your face. You can do rectangular, square or angular styles. Sunglasses with brow bars also work for you! Recommended styles: Broad square, angular or rectangular.

3. Diamond Face: You can wear softly curved angular frames or oval rames. Avoid wearing frames that are wider than the upper part of your cheek bones. Recommended styles: Rimless, oval or angular.

4. Oval Face: An oval face has a chin that is comparatively narrower than the forehead. The cheek bones are also high. The good news is that most frames suit the shape of your face. Try wearing lots of geometric shapes that will add sharpness to the soft curves of your face. Recommended styles: Rectangular, square.

5. Heart Face: You could try frames with low-set temples in order to take the attention off the upper part of your face. You could also pick narrow circular frames which will add a few curves to your forehead. Frames that are heavy at the bottom are also ideal for your face shape because they add width to the lower area of your face. Recommended styles: Circular, cat eyes.

6. Oblong Face: Choose sunglasses with frames no wider than the widest part of your face. Decorative temples are meant for you–they provide your face with needed width. Recommended styles: Round, square and frames with short horizontal and long vertical lines.
