Hello again, and welcome back to my little old corner of the bloggersphere. Don’t mind me while I dust everything off from the time it has been sitting vacant while I have been out of commission, busy getting married and such. Don’t fret, regular frequent programming is set to resume.. NOW.
Also, don’t fret about what I know you’re all on here looking for– I will have full blown flowery, sappy, beautiful, it-was-everything I-ever-dreamed-of-and-more wedding content coming soon. Pinky swear.
In the meantime, let’s talk about what’s been going on in my life (and closet) since all of that wonderful madness. As I discussed on my Instagram last week, everyone warned me about this looming wedding hangover goblin that was perched inside our little 500 sq. ft. apartment in Atlanta, patiently awaiting our honeymoon return to swallow us whole. All the excitement and bliss and fellowship would be over. It would be back to the real world and it would hit you like a ton of depression bricks because how do you even look forward to anything after the happiest day of your life is over?
I hate to break your pessimistic little hearts (and love to bring hope to you optimistic soon to be brides)– nothing of this sort happened to me. As a matter of fact, it was quite the opposite. Because you see friends, the thing that you have to look forward to after the BIG DAY is over is life. And the beautiful thing about it is, if you shared that alter with the correct person, the thought of that should make you downright giddy. I’m serious. I look forward to a perfectly ordinary night eating dinner on the couch with Trey with a vengeance. Getting back to our normal routines, just as husband and wife now, has us feeling happier than ever. For me specifically, it has been like hitting the reset button and getting back to the grind has given me a new motivation that was just what I needed.
So, my first outfit post as the new and improved Mrs. Trey DeHart, let’s do this.
Part of me feeling more motivated to create better content is me wanting to step up my wardrobe lately. I’ve been looking for pieces that are different and out of the ordinary to spice up my favorite looks that are tried and true. Priceless was a Godsend in this regard, as I was able to find two pieces that are totally me and also just a smidgen out of my norm. To start, this mesh floral dress was pretty much fabricated straight out of my dreams. I’m looking forward to styling it with denim and leather jackets and even under sweaters this fall (you like how I keep all my #ootd ideas stored neatly in my brain?). Plus, the name of this dress is Gemini and I’m not real into the whole the stars hold my truth thing or even astrology in general but that is my horoscope sign so that has to count for something right?
And can we just take a minute to appreciate this oversized black denim jacket I got myself into? This is going to be the my saving grace layering piece this fall/winter since the temps don’t drop that low in God’s Green South but it’s plenty big enough for me to layer a cozy knit under.
Like F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” Yes, [married] life, motivation, and apparently, my wardrobe.
