Breaking The Rules

LNL love 'n' labels: breaking the rules - wearing white after labor day

Sometimes it’s fun to break the rules … Right??

I’m talking about the rules of fashion. (Or, should I say, what used to be the rules.) I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “No wearing white after Labor Day.” Well, in today’s fashion world, wearing white after Labor Day actually sets you apart as being a fashionista who is totally on-trend.

Tulle Skirt Styling for the Holidays

Happy first day of December, beautiful!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and I couldn’t be MORE excited. I am a total Christmas fanatic, y’all. Ever since I started my blog this year, I’ve been looking forward to styling some fun and festive holiday looks to hopefully inspire you. Everyone’s calendars get so full and busy during the holiday season between Christmas events, parties, shopping, traveling, and decorating. So, I’ve decided to share at least one festive #ootd per week leading up to Christmas in order to help you find some inspiration for the looks that you will wear to all the events listed in your planner this month.

For the first holiday look, I’m sharing one of my absolute favorites – my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment! 🙂 Every woman deserves one.

Wedding Wednesday: 4 Tips to Help You in the Beginning of the Planning Process

Happy Hump Daaay! It’s time for another #weddingwednesday — where’re all my beautiful brides at?! Before we get too far into girly wedding talk, I wanted to inform y’all that going forward, I plan on sharing only one to two #weddingwednesday posts per month (instead of a weekly thing). I don’t want to bombard love ‘n’ labels with too much wedding mush, so rather, I plan on popping in a WW post about every other week or so.

If you know me, you know that I love all things wedding-related, and since I just went through the entire wedding process myself, I want to share as many tips, tricks and pieces of advice that I can with soon-to-be brides. Thus far, I have shared about getting engaged, some guidance on what to do after you get engaged (read that post HERE), and details/advice of throwing an engagement party (read HERE).

Today, I’m sharing all about what I did after our engagement party to officially begin the wedding planning process.

Oversized Ponchos + OTK Boots

Tis the season for big, chunky sweaters, cute boots & all things oversized! These days, who doesn’t love wearing pieces that are oversized (esp. in the winter)?! This has become one of the most popular trends over the past few years, and I’m a big fan because it’s flattering on every body type, so comfortable and can be styled in many different ways.

Speaking of … ponchos, capes & wraps are the big must-haves for the upcoming season. Annnd um, PTL for that because they make us girls feel so stylish, totally comfy and WARM throughout even the longest (& coldest) days.

Happy Black Friday SHOPPING, ladies! Anyone finding some great deals yet? Last night my mom, sister and I went on our traditional shopping trip to our local Tanger Outlets and scored some ridiculous deals.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you beautiful turkeys out there! I’m currently posting this from the car because TJ and I are on our way to our first stop of the day.

Any fun traditions?? My mom, sister and I have a tradition that we do every year after Thanksgiving dinner. We drive up to our local shopping outlets and literally shop ’til we drop.
