Life Lately: Turning 30 + Amazon Prime Day Sales

Turning 30 in 6 Days…

It’s crazy to think I’ll be leaving my Twenties behind next Monday (6.28!) but in all honesty, I’m totally ready to step into this new decade. If there’s anything the movie ’13 Going On 30′ taught me, it’s that your Thirties are meant to be enjoyed to the fullest – remain flirty in your years (because 30 is still so young & age is truly just a number) & remember that the idea of ‘thriving’ doesn’t necessarily go by the textbook of what it should look like on the outside. This new year of 30 is going to bring so many wonderful things to my life, starting with my marriage to Thomas this fall. 29 was oh so fine but I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for me.

On another note, we’ll be celebrating our Engagement Party this Saturday! I’ll be sure to update with details following the event as best I can, but I also can’t believe the time is almost here for this as well. We’ve been planning this day since the beginning of 2021, personally opting to call it an ‘Engagement Party’ (not a ‘Co-ed Shower’) so it’s more of a casual, celebratory setting we can enjoy with friends & family. I’m also not planning to have a Bridal Shower, so this will stand in place of such & also allows for more flexibility with invitees/details that’ll amuse both my & Thomas’s personalities. After all, it’s OUR wedding & T should be celebrated the same as myself as a bride would be at a Shower :]

In terms of what I’ll be wearing this Saturday >> I scored an incredible dress from the Shopbop sale last week (yay!) and will show everyone as soon as I can. But if you’re also looking for Bridal outfit inspo or simply a fan of white/floral pieces like I am (regardless of your marital status) then I highly recommend checking out Petal & Pup’s latest collection of gorg pieces for the summer. In fact, all (4) outfits shown above are from P&P with the exception of one top & one pair of earrings — AND my 20% off code “Bright” has been extended to be valid throughout August – YAY!

That being said, I definitely still have several traditional Bridal Dress Options ‘hearted’ as possible Bachelorette outfits & also keeping a mental note of these Bridal Party Gift Ideas to consider for my Squad when the time comes.

Polka Dot Maxi Dress | Floral Flare Dress | White Eyelet Top | Floral Ruffle Skirt | Similar Crop Tops | Lace Mini Skirt | Weave Sandals | Pearl Drop Earrings | Rattan Earrings

Everything I got fits TTS & in the event something is S/O or not available in your size, be sure to sign up for the Waitlist so you can be notified of restocks (which happen frequently, almost weekly!) && be sure to use my code BRIGHT for 20% off!
