One Happy Girl :)

Hello bloggy-friends ๐Ÿ™‚

Following my last post, I’ve determined that from here on out I want to address you, my readers, as friends or fellow bloggers.. or something of the sort. Because really, you aren’t just readers because I’ve developed different blogger-friendships with each of you and the term “readers” just isn’t personal enough. Readers is just too blah, and so incredibly harsh sounding, to me at least. It’s just a surface term that I find boring. Don’t you agree? ๐Ÿ™‚

While writing this post, I find myself sitting at the enormous kitchen table of my aunt and uncle back in Austin. Yes, I’m back! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just can’t seem to stay away from this city, hehe. Trust me when I tell you it’s just grand, and if you haven’t visited you MUST. (I think I’ve said that more than once.) This time my visit entails different things than just romping about the city with my boyfriend. He is still in Virginia, and babe if you read this I hope you’re alive since I’m not cooking for you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m seriously considering moving here sometime in the next few years.. and hopefully sooner than later! Tomorrow I will hopefully be meeting up with one of our very own, a fellow blogista! Stay tuned to hear about it ๐Ÿ™‚

(Before I say anything else, I just want to mention that I’m an idiot and I forgot to bring my camera cord with me to upload pictures ON the trip. I was determined to share with you all while I was here, but I guess that will have to wait until I return to Virginia.)

Soo, without further blabbing, I wanted to share with you an adorable boutique I’ve stumbled on thanks to my cousins math tutor and family friends who is getting married this January! Her name is Audrey and she is getting hitched this January. She bought her bridesmaid dresses from the boutique and they are adorable, let me tell you! The boutique is called 1HappyGirl and was founded by a model named Paige in 2008. The clothing is ever so chic and girly, characterized by embellished pieces with bows, ruffles, and everything of the sort- I want every single piece! Audrey and I were talking about her wedding when I asked about her dresses and she started to tell me about the boutique. I instantly jumped on my Macbook and looked it up, and fell in love. Below is a picture of the dress she picked.

Don’t you love it? Omgsh, I do! I adore the peeping ruffles at the bottom. They add such character to a simple LBD. The two flowers in the middle of the dress are the front of a belt cinching the waist. Audrey is having her girls wear this with black or ivory cowgirl boots, to give it a country, but still dressed up feel. And the greatest thing about it? They can wear this dress over and over! It’s so versatile and is a piece they’ll have to wear over and again. I’m jealous ๐Ÿ˜‰

So naturally, after gushing over her selection, I scoured their website and found some other pieces I loved. Take a peak!

    Your blog is just lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ I seriously adore all these pieces. I also agree with the word ‘reader’ not being personal enough when talking to blogger friends. We need a special word for it ๐Ÿ™‚
