Boho for Fall

Dress: Free People via ShopBop (also comes in this pretty blue color!) Loving this feminine off-white version too! // ‘Ella’ Bag: c/o J. Markell // Booties: Sole Society (old) but similar here, here, and here (also obsessed with these, which are the perfect transitional heels!) 

First of all, thank you so much for your sweet words and messages after yesterday’s post, it means more to me than you’ll ever know and I feel so grateful to have your support and positive thoughts. 




I’m actually writing this as I get ready to jump on a plane to Oregon for the weekend to do some wedding planning and visit family, so I’ll keep this post short and sweet, but there is one little thing positive note I’d like to share today: 

In exactly one year, we’ll be getting married! I feel like the luckiest person alive, and I can’t imagine how ecstatic I’m going to be waking up on 9/9/17! 

I finally get to see our venue in person on Sunday! (We booked it sight unseen. Sounds crazy, but you’ll see why soon enough) and we’re also meeting with our wedding planner! 

More updates (and hopefully some semblance of normalcy around here) coming soon. 

Love, 





Jess
