    Hi guys! Today’s post is a little different than usual, but one that I’m really excited to share with you all! As some of you probably already know, Daniel and I recently celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary (hi, we’re officially old) on February 3rd. (Yes, the Super Bowl. We actually got married on the Super Bowl too…what are sports? 😂 ) Anyway, as you can imagine, a lot can change in 6 years! So we decided to get all dressed up in our wedding best again and have ourselves a fun little wedding do-over shoot! An Arizona desert boho elopement wedding style shoot to be exact. 😏 Wedding trends come and go (clearly – peep some photos from our actual wedding here), but the one thing I’d never change is my groom. Or our sweet little ring bearer – look at that tiny pink noseeee!

    I’ll spare you all the details of me telling you about how much I love Daniel, and just let the photos do the talking instead. I hope you guys enjoy them, find inspiration in them for all you engaged couples, and let them remind you that you’re never too old to dress up and have fun with the one you love. 🙂 Also if you love this style, I made sure to link all the products that I could below for you guys so you can rock this style too! And special thanks to Lulu’s for sending me this lovely dress to skip through the desert in. 🙂

    3 Ways to Wear Sparkle for the Holidays

    Grace Mattei, writer and fashion blogger behind the Gracest blog poses in subtle sheen power suit to show how to wear sparkle for the holidays.

    Alright, so I know that it’s the end of December and the holidays are honestly almost over. But it’s been on my list to write this post since I shot these photos a few weeks ago, and I’ll be damned if I was gonna let them go to waste! (#persist) That being said, let’s talk about 3 ways to wear sparkle for the holidays! Or ya know, just any time of year. Because honestly I’d probably wear sequins every day of my life if you guys wouldn’t judge me for it. (New 2019 goal, perhaps? 😏 )

    Now I know some of y’all are extra like me, and are like – umm the only way to wear sparkle is to cover your body with it entirely. Obviously. But for those of you who are more reserved, or ya know, just normal – I’ve got you covered too girl! Scroll below for 3 different ways to wear your sparkle, and for lots of outfit links and inspo as well.

    Guys! The post you’ve all been waiting for – let’s talk about how you can attend NYFW (yes, even as a small blogger)!

    First of all, what even is NYFW, you ask? NYFW stands for New York Fashion Week. It’s an event held in NYC every February and September, when designers showcase their upcoming collections to both the public and fashion industry. There are tons of invite-only fashion shows, parties, events, and showrooms that go on during NYFW, and tons of fabulous people who attend them (including you after this post!).

    Best Paris Instagram Spots - Rue de Cremieux

    Bonjour! As most of you know, (or at least any of you who follow me on Instagram), Daniel and I recently took our first international trip together to Paris! And while I’m still drowning in photos edits from that trip (and probably will be for the foreseeable future…I’m not exactly known for being the fastest blogger around on my turnaround time, considering I still haven’t blogged our Cali trip 🙄), I thought I would bang out a couple of quick pics to write you guys a list of the 15 Best Paris Instagram Spots! This was honestly the hardest list to write because EVERYWHERE in Paris was so beautiful, but these spots take the Parisian cake! So let’s hop to it, ya IG crazies.

    The Ultimate Travel Backpack (for Fashion Girls!) - Grace Mattei, blogger behind lifestyle and fashion blog the Gracest, wears an Archer Brighton travel backpack around Downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

    Hey ya’ll! It’s been a minute. I’m not sure if it’s the weather getting warmer (or in the case of Phoenix, straight up HOT!), or the fact that I’ve just been a busy little bee, but time has been flying lately! However, time flying aside, I’m here now! Here, and ready to update y’all on life – and also tell you about my new ultimate travel backpack (for fashion girls, duh!).

    How To Get The Perfect Fit Every Time

    You know what’s the worst? Going shopping and finding something you absolutely love, only to find that it fits you…completely wrong. It’s like some sort of cruel joke. Whether your bust is too big (or in my case, too small 🙄 the worst!) for the the top that fits you otherwise perfectly, or the jeans that fit your thighs just right, but leave a gaping space between your butt and the back hem of the jeans because you aren’t a Kardashian, it’s an altogether frustrating scenario that happens wayyy too often. (Don’t lose heart just yet though – this post is gonna help you get the perfect fit!)
