A J. Crew sale & Engagement Photos

J. Crew, you got me again. Last night, in honor of Chicago Fashion Week, Chicago Magazine and J. Crew threw a little get-together. There were cupcakes, giveaways (an adorable bangle) and ridiculous discounts. I snagged the leather jacket above for a teeny tiny fraction of the original cost. For this reason, and the fact that I will be taking my engagement photos (outdoors) next week, I had to have it. So, thanks J. Crew for styling me for my engagement photos. I'm going for a casual, fall, Chicago look. The rustic photo above is a space at Salvage One and a must for our photo shoot. I also love the photo of the couple {I said yes} for save the dates. I'll be sure to share the finished products with all of you! Also, I've noticed that my posts have been few and far between lately... they have also taken on a wedding theme. I'll be sure to work on that.

Cara & Nathan Tie the Knot in Napa

As you can probably tell, Cara is one of my dearest friends and I could not be happier for her and her new husband, Nathan. This past weekend we celebrated their wedding in wine country and I just couldn't wait to share the lovely event with all of you!

After our flight in we pretty much went straight to Gott's for Ahi tuna burgers, sweet potato fries and pumpkin shakes (what bridesmaids dress??)

Love the vineyard dogs
