Lilac Lace.

Hello everyone! I finished "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" this week and all I can say is "wow!" That book captured my heart, broke it and then healed it again. It made me reevaluate my entire life and all of my close relationships. I know everyone tries to live by carpe diem, but this book has really taught me to treat the people I love as though we don't have a tomorrow. I often find myself stressing over the little things and holding grudges at times, but now I have this book forever embedded in the back of my mind. Always say "I love you" and don't waste your precious minutes being upset. I put the book away, but it's message will forever live in my heart.
So I must say this swap thing has definitely helped me with blogging lately. This beautiful lace dress is Meg's! I'm such a sucker for anything lace, and this lilac color is just the icing on the cake. I added the bow tie necklace for obvious reasons! :) So this week I lightened my hair a bit and got a trim. I'm so excited about this color, it's something I've been wanting for awhile now. It looks more blonde in real life though, it photographed a bit dark!
So this weekend I will have my blog shop up. I've been going through my closet this week and I'm ready to say goodbye to some of my treasures. Also coming up soon is my FAQ video and some more swap item posts! Oh and a little wedding update, I'm going wedding dress shopping on Saturday! Have a lovely night everyone! xo

Beautiful!!!!!!!!! That dress really is a pretty shade of purple and your hair came out really well! :)

Super excited about your blog shop. I'm going to peek at all your treasures and cry over the fact I don't have money to buy them. Thus will continue the sad little story of my life. haha

Oh my god Heather, you look so GOOD in that dress! You styled it so perfectly! Those shoes look so adorable with it. N'awww, love it all! And the bow tie necklace is pretty pimp. Hehe. Yay.

And your hair looks really good! I'm super jealous; sometimes I wish my hair was all long and straight. Sigh. Also I can't wait to hear about your wedding dress shopping, I hope it goes well!

I may have to read this book now... it sounds really good.
