Best of 2017: Penny Darling

Happy Wednesday, ya’ll!

This has been a crazy two weeks! Lots of projects (and some low key drama! maybe I’ll fill you in later!) and different things to work on!

And I have to take a few photos of our update on wedding prep! We have set a date, save the dates are being made, decorations are being figured out, apparel is being fixed up! My mom has been an absolute dream in this whole process. She loves a good project and this is her new fave and has been awesome! Thanks mom!

But I realized that I hadn’t done any kind of recap of 2017 and I’ve seen so many bloggers do a ‘best of’ post! So I wanted to do that today! (I stole this idea from my girl, Fashion Schlub!)

This is a recap of my best of posts from 2017 and some of my fave outfits!

So let’s see, what else? Hmm, blah, blah, blah, – check me out on Instagram here! I also started a Twitter account! Find that here! Follow Preston’s brand new fashion Instagram here! I also have a selling Instagram page where I sell some of my old clothes/styles so that I don’t drown in my own wardrobe. I just listed a few new things – so check that out!

Obviously this was THE highlight!

Check out the proposal story here (including a video!) and the how we met story!



Here’s a few more of Preston & I being adorable this year!

He’s the absolute love of my life and I can’t wait to announce our date next week!
