OOTD Engagement Photo Shoot! 

I recently received a teaser of our engagement photos from our photography company and I thought it would be a fun idea to do an OOTD on what I wore. I actually didn’t know what to wear. I browsed a little bit on Pinterest. I ended up putting together outfits I already had in my closet which worked out great!!! We did both a dressy and casual look. We chose  Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey as our venue spot.

  
Outfit Details: Skirt//Top (similar)//Shoes

For our casual look we did a basketball theme. My fiance is a huge fan of the Chicago Bulls so we chose matching shirts that we had. I paired it with some old skinny jeans and cute comfy shoes.

We are so in love with all of our photos! In about 2 weeks the rest of the engagement photos will be available to download and share with everyone. So stay tuned.

What do you guys prefer when it comes to engagement photo shoots; dressy or casual?

Simple Engagement Gifts for the Bride-to-Be! 

When my fiancé proposed to me at a family party a lot of my close friends knew ahead of time and brought me absolutely beautiful gifts. Each gift we received was so thoughtful. And I have made and will make great use to each of them! If you are interested in some ideas Check out the list below:

A ring dish! This is one of my absolute favorite gifts that I received. I loose things, especially my jewelry (my expensive jewelry) so this was probably the best gift anyone could have given me! I always take my ring off when I wash dishes, take a shower and go to bed and place it right on my little umbrella!  My best friend and matron of honor got me this one from Anthropologie. I loved it so much that I got my two future sister-in-laws similar ones when they too got engaged the same year! 🙂 They are so super convienant and inexpensive.

Engraved Frame! One of my other favorite gifts was this customized enagraved frame I received from one of my bridesmaids. It has the date we got engaged on the bottom of it. I recently went out and printed some pictures from our actual engagement and some professional engagement photos and placed it in our foyer.

Kate Spade Mrs Passport Holder! How adorable is this passport holder?  One of my closest friends gave me this and I think it is so cute and SOOO me! I love little things like this (Frencesca’s has perfect little items similar to this). I remember in her card she encouraged me to use this as motivation to go somewhere amazing for our honeymoon and it literally has done just that!!!

 “I DO” Mugs! My other amazing friend got us matching “I DO” mugs! I loved the personal “what she says” touch to it for my fiancé’s matching mug lol! 😉

If you’re looking for a more simple gift and something really cute then I hope one of these options spoke to you! Which one was your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
