This Weekend-er

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! The weekend is finally here! It's not just ANY weekend- it's my best gal pal’s wedding weekend! Another bridesmaid and I packed our bags and headed out the door this Wednesday to report for wedding duty!  Seating charts, bustles, and honeymoon packing have been on our list! Don't you worry friends- cocktails and wine have been included in on the festivities, too!  I am sure tears will be flowin' on Saturday! I get so giddy just thinking about seeing her walk down the aisle. It takes me back to my own wedding day almost two years ago! Stay tuned on Monday for my weekend roundup, but until then, take a look at what's inside my bag this weekend:

Polka Dot DressI'm wearing this dress for the rehearsal dinner on Friday.  As soon as I saw it, I had to have it! It reminded me so much of the dress that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman and that just happens to be tied for my favorite movie [Steel Magnolias is a close second!]. What’s the best part about this dress, you ask? It comes in petite! How perfect, right?

Striped Pajama SetI bought this striped pajama set recently and I just love it. It'll be so comfy for when the bride and all of us maids are loungin' in the hotel suite!

Essie Nail PolishI never leave my house without a bottle of nail polish in my bag.  It is usually my favorite hue- “Snap Happy” by Essie! We are getting mani's and pedi's on Friday morning and I am sure that this happy hue will make its way on both my fingers and toes!

Fresh Citron Body LotionIt's very rare that I ever find a body lotion that I love and stick with once it runs out. However, I am forever hooked on this one! It smells so fresh and makes me feel fancy when I put it on. If you haven't tried it out yet, it's a must!

Metallic SandalsI love these sandals SO much that I bought them in two different colors! I am typically more of a gold than silver gal, but these have been on my feet non-stop since I purchased them! They will be perfect for this weekend and will go with absolutely everything! 

Emergency KitBridal Emergency kit- need I say more? This little thing holds more than I can possibly list and my own personal version has come in handy so often! It's adorbs.

Striped T-ShirtPerfect to throw on Sunday morning when I may or may not have had a little too much to drink and need to drive home to see my pops!

MoisturizerI promise that one of these days I will get better at my night time ritual of washing off all of my make-up.  This moisturizer has completely lifted and tightened my face since I started using it and I haven't stopped since! It's a little pricey for the size of the bottle, but I just can't help myself.  The results make the price totally worth it! 

SunniesMy sunnies are typically stuck on my face in the summertime. I have so many pairs, but these are my favorite! 

Laundry BagThis laundry bag is a must for my travels.

Travel BagI have purchased a lot of bags in my lifetime, but this one is a favorite! The size is swell and I can fit almost everything I need into it. Not to mention, I am kind of smitten with those stripes!

Hope you all have a great weekend! Do you have any special plans with your pops? See you all back here on Monday!
