Fashion Friday: Beat Your Wedding Planning Blues Beautifully

Happy Friday everyone! This edition of Fashion Friday is all about beating stress with a little “you” time! We know how exhausting everyday life can be – throw in the work (and the flutter!) that can come with wedding planning, and it can be a recipe for a disaster…or most certainly a bridezilla moment of epic proportions.

That’s why today I’m showcasing 3 beautiful fashion forward stress busters that are a perfect way to make memories with your bridesmaids and they’ll save your sanity along the way too! So get ready to put the beat down on stress – with beauty! Enjoy!
