What I Read Wednesday

Over the weekend I finished Elin Hilderbrand's new book, Beautiful Day. Her books are always set on the island of Nantucket, making them great summer reads.

Beautiful Day told the story of a family who were preparing for a wedding. Jenna is getting married and her deceased mother filled out a notebook of how her wedding should be planned. Jenna follows all of the directions to a "T". Each chapter is told from a different family members perspective showing us that no matter how perfectly you plan things out, there is plenty of room for events to go wrong!

This is a really easy but enjoyable book. I started and finished it over the weekend. Would be the perfect beach read!

Baby shower dresses

Recently I ordered two adorable dresses from Asos Maternity for my upcoming baby showers. My first shower is in August and it's a morning one. I planned on wearing the cream dress to it and then the black and yellow one to my shower in September. What do you think?
