preppity prep prep

...for pictures tomorrow. I feel as if I am going overboard! However, I think it's more of a reflection of the neglect my appearance has received during the last month or so as I've been completely immersed in school. The eyebrows need some attention and the fingers and toes are in desperate need of a little polish! The momma and I went shopping last night last minute. She did not love one of the dresses I originally planned to wear for engagement pictures. And was not shy about telling me- one of the reasons I love my mom, I don't worry about her not being honest! Granted, I am twenty-something and perfectly capable of dressing myself but I still value my mom's opinion. 

So, I thought I'd give a little preview! 

The good folks at J.Crew chased this dress down for me and I love it! It will also be perfect for a summer shower or date night. 

I tried this Lilly on last week but didn't get it... I went back last night and it came home with me. I had to go a size up and need a few alterations (TODAY, haha!). A classic. 

Lastly, I still haven't decided what my third option will be... Either jeans + top + boots OR another dress + boots. I have been incredibly indecisive. Like I said, making more out of this than I should?? 

P.S. I've been on the lookout for white jeans. After I came home yesterday wearing my all time favorite white pants I've had since my junior year in high school (almost 10 years!!) my mom decided to help in my purchase due to the saggy/bagginess of my current pair. I found the cutest pair at Talbots last night and can't wait to wear them! 

Any Derby fans out there? If so, I am sure you've seen the Vineyard Vines KY Derby collection. Love it! CSB is a big fan off all things horse racing and has been eyeing the ties in the collection for some time. I suprised him with one for this weekend! 

(I actually got the tie in this print, I just couldn't find it online!)

I love them all! ESPECIALLY that second dress! :) You're going to look great! I think jeans might be a good 3rd choice. It'll give you some variety. Can't wait to see the pics! You are going to show us, right??
