Friday Favorites: Wedding Inspired

Today’s Favorite Things Friday is Wedding Inspired because today is the 4 month mark before the Big Day! I can’t believe its only in 16 weeks away! 

In honor of us hitting the 4 month mark, today’s favorites will be an ode to my wedding color – Periwinkle Blue!

Side Note: I carry this swatch around with me EVERYWHERE! Do you like how it sort of matches the blog background? No, that is not a coincidence! I really love the color! 🙂


Let’s start out with something super comfortable – I got these Bailey Button Ugg Boots for Christmas and I LOVE THEM! They are so comfortable and match all my Wish Blue 🙂

I am LOVING this Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Tote Bag in Lagoon. I think I might need this bad boy for the honeymoon! Don’t you agree?

Seriously, how cute is this Eliza J Ruffled One Shoulder Dress. I am thinking I might need it for a shower, or the rehearsal dinner or the honeymoon? I love the color and the look – it has pockets too!

Kate Spade Kellie Two heels in Cobalt…need I say more?

I was so excited when I saw the Lululemon Gym Essentials kit got on sale in Wish Blue! It’s a handy dandy little organizer, and obviously the color is awesome.

I have been burning this candle non-stop since I put away my Christmas decor because it gets me excited for the wedding! I like to burn it on my desk when I am doing wedding things on the computer!

I love the Yankee Candle Hibiscus scent!

So those are just a few of my favorite wedding blue things for the week! I can’t get enough of the periwinkle, cobalt, wish blue color! I love it!

What are some of your favorite things for the week?

GNO at The Franklin & Dandelion

Tonight I met up with Lauren and Melissa for a girls night out(or a GNO as Hannah Montana likes to call it….don’t ask)


First we met up at The Franklin for fancy cocktails.

The drinks were unlike anything I had ever seen before. All fresh, nothing artificial, each one super tasty. I enjoyed an Emma Frost (ingredients below)


I enjoyed the grapefruit slice in my cocktail.


The Franklin Bar is a pre-prohibition bar with a pretty cool story. I would love to come back here and bring Fiancé. I know he would really like it!


After our fancy cocktails we headed next door to check out Steven Starr’s latest and greatest – The Dandelion.


I enjoyed a Pimm’s Deluxe while Melissa and Lauren stuck to beer.


I heart cucumber drinks.

It’s a Dandy Lion – get it??



The menu looked pretty good and there was a whole section of amazing appetizers but we just wanted to share some food and chat. 


And take pictures!


I love these ladies.

Melissa and I shared a burger, which totally hit the spot.


The fries were pretty awesome too.


We also shared a butter lettuce salad with pomegranate seeds.


It was delish!


I had an amazing evening with these two ladies! We talked for hours and caught up on each others lives while trying out some new and tasty restaurants.It was a blast!

I love girls night!


Any of my Philly friends been to The Franklin or Dandelion? What did you think of it? What did you get? I love learning what other people order!


What is your favorite thing to do on a girls night out?
