Style Peek: 05.24.11

Hello friends, how are you doing today? You know how some magazines show you 'runway to reality' interpretations? Well consider this a 'wedding to reality' interpretation by me. Several months ago I got my wedding cardigan, a super splurge from J.Crew and it's been sitting lonely in my closet ever since. I could resist taking it out for a twirl! Plus I found this super cute creamy ivory blouse at Eddie Bauer. I know! I rarely shop there, it's not not really my style. But every once in a while I wander in, lured by the cute camping lifestyle and I end up with something really sweet from the sale rack. So I've got my soft vintage turquoise and my creamy champagne - just like my wedding outfit!

I have to confess, taking these outfit pics is a humbling experience because let me tell you - the camera doesn't lie! You know when you wake up and get dressed and you feel pretty cute...then you see a picture of yourself. It's a good thing though, because it's really going to help me stay on track (and decide which clothes to toss in my wardrobe - ha ha!). One day at a time right?

Plus between showers and engagement shoots and the wedding - this will probably be my most photographed summer of all time so a good reason to work hard. Self-love. Self-love. Self-love...that's my new mantra!

The lilacs are blooming and they smell delicious. There's one that leans over our deck and her sweet scent floats over the yard - so awesome.

Are you stopping to smell the lilacs these days friends? Hoping you are all well and happy!


  1. so cute- looks like it is warming up too!

  2. ya know what... the camera doesn't like, but you are your own worst critic. when i see these pics i see how adorable you are! i love the outfit, the necklace, and how you look kinda bashful and cute!

  3. Oh my gosh.. I can so relate! Today I took my outfit photos, feeling like quite the hotshot, I might add... and then I saw my outfit on the camera screen. Yikes.

    You look absolutely beautiful, however. You always do!


  4. Are you kidding Lenore?! You are gorgeous and that outfit was so perfectly you!
    I'm utterly disappointed that I am going to miss out on the lilacs this year, they are my favorite part of Manitoba springs.
    Just add that to the pile of awesome from home that I'm missing while I'm in Saskatchewan. :(

  5. Love the necklace ;) Suits you perfectly!
