Weekly Wishes 03.

Weekly Wishes 03. star-crossed smile

Did you guys have a good weekend? My entire weekend was taken over by the Halloween party (hence no new post yesterday), but I’m back today with a new set of goals for the week. I did pretty well with last weeks wishes since most of them were Halloween-related. I would say the party was generally a success and I liked the way my costume turned out (a post on that coming later this week).

This week I want to…

– start a new book. The last book I read was pretty good, but also a bit dense, so now I’m in the mood for something a little lighter. My book club is meeting this week, which I’m excited about. We’re taking turns selecting the book we read and it’s my turn next. I already know what I’m picking, now I just have to actually buy the book!

– shop around for a dress for the wedding. I haven’t been to a wedding since I was a kid and I’ve never really been to the wedding of someone I know well, so you could say that my knowledge of weddings in general is pretty limited. I’ve asked about what I should wear and now I just need to find something appropriate in the next 7-10 days that won’t break the bank. If you have any ideas on where I should look, I’m all ears. Eeesh, shopping on a deadline is hard- wish me luck!

– try something new with my hair. I’m often rushing in the mornings and I don’t usually take the time to do anything with my hair other than straighten my bangs. It’s always fun to switch things up though, so I want to try something else. I’ve got a few ideas- nothing complicated, just a hairstyle that at least looks a little different from the usual.

Tell me: What are your goals for this week?

    Can’t wait to see your costume!
    Weddings can be really fun. There’s food and dancing and it’s just an all around big celebration! Hope you’re able to find something :) Just be sure it’s not white!


    • Thanks Jenmarie- definitely good advice!

  • Hi there! I’m new to your blog but from your fashion posts, I can tell that you’ve got a great fashion sense. I’m pretty sure you’ll find something gorgeous to wear to the wedding :)
    As for reading, pray tell what book you’re picking. I love book recommendations!
    Good luck with your goals this week!

    • Thank you- I hope I find something! Oh, and I’m picking The Circle by Dave Eggers! It’s been getting a lot of buzz so I’m excited to start it.

  • Oh that halloween party!! so excited about those! hah

    • Yay, hope you have the BEST time at your party tomorrow!

  • Ooh, will you share with us what book you will choose? Also, I totally know what you mean about changing it up with the hair thing – I always have my hair usually in the same styles. I would love to get the guts to go short though!

    • I chose The Circle for book club- I think it will be a good read! Yes, my hair pretty much always looks the same, but this week I’m going to try really hard to do a new style (will share a pic on instagram if I remember :)

    Weddings are fun :) I’m going to one in Jan and the weather is going to be hot! So I guess you need to dress for the season :) It’s hard to shop under a time frame and budget but I’m sure you will find something nice :)

    • Oh, fun! Where is your wedding located? Thanks Kat- I really hope I find something too :)

  • I haven’t been to a lot of weddings either, but I would say make sure you wear something that you can dance in. The last wedding I went to had an amazing DJ and I was all over that dance floor… hahah Good luck! ;)

    • Ahh, yes, so important! I have the feeling that there will be some good music to dance to at this wedding too. Thank you :)
