Everyone is well aware that attending a wedding can be very expensive. Then if you have multiple in one season it starts adding up. I rounded up dresses under $50 that are stylish and versatile so you don't have to stress over what to wear to any upcoming nuptials.

Last Friday feels like a year ago! Between the trip to Santa Barbara and being busy at work, this week simultaneously flew by and feels like it lasted eons. We've got some rain coming this weekend so I'm looking at a slow weekend with lots of catching up on my "to read" list.

In other news, I have been lending a hand to a few friends planning some upcoming celebrations, both weddings and birthdays! I truly love party planning and researching, so it's been really fun to put creative energy toward those. If you need some party inspiration, be sure to follow me on Pinterest!

I, along with the rest of the internet, have been completely obsessed with bowl meals. I have made them pretty much since I moved out of my parents house, but usually it was a everything-left-in-the-fridge-no-groceries kind of meal. These days, I am much more deliberate with my choice of ingredients. It's so easy to make them healthy and they taste like comfort food! Plus, if you have any dietary restrictions, they are very easy to customize and make vegan, vegetarian, G Free, Dairy Free, etc.
