happy hump day!! im sorry about the lack of posting but the closer it gets to wedding day the busier my days get:( yesterday we took engagement pictures with our super sweet photographer. it was an interesting experience. i hate having my picture taken and so does doug. which is weird for me since i take pictures of myself almost everyday. we are kind of awkward together in front of the camera and i'm never happy with the way i look. i was apprehensive to have them taken but since they're included in our picture package we decided to go for it. we had a blast walking the streets of downtown cincinnati. i can't wait to see how they turn out. i have to say it was one of our best "engaged couple" moments. it's not hard to have that whole love haze thing going on when your man is looking at you adoringly, giving you kisses and holding your hand:P

i actually wore this sweater last night in the pics and loved it so much i had to find a way to wear it today. i discovered this morning that i have a missing piece in my closet-a simple ivory tank. just as i was getting ready to scrap the idea of wearing this adorable cardi i remembered that i had this red dress. it's a bubble dress and it's way too big now so i wasn't sure if i would be able to layer the skirt over it. gotta say....i love how it turned out. this skirt was a late night surfing the internet purchase. i'm nervous with ruffles and tiers on the bottom half of me because i have a curvier bottom half and i'm never quite sure if i'm going to add bulk in all the wrong places. i adore this skirt. i'm also pretty happy with the quality of the f21 twelve by twelve and love collections.

we are having lovely weather here so i'm off to enjoy it:)


  1. You look great...and you're making me want my favorite Jamaican brew!

  2. I love this outfit and how well red suits you! I've been eyeing this sweater for a while, but maybe when it finally goes on sale we will become one!

  3. I hope your engagement pictures turn out well and that you're happy with them. Love the striped cardigan with the rose on the blouse. Very editorial-worthy :)

  4. Oh my gosh, this outfit is sooo perfect Courtnee, I adore it! The red and white stripes of the field game cardigan play off the blouse and skirt perfectly and the proportions are all right as well, awesome. One of my favorite things I've seen you wear, and that's a high bar =)
