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.
