29 purple balloons

Dress:  asos (similar here - plus size here)  |  Heels:  Nine West (similar here)  |  Facinator:  asos (similar 1/2/3/4)  |  Bracelet:  Kate Spade (similar here)  |  Necklace: Express ( similar here)

Here's my first try at wearing a midi-dress with cut outs {insert shocked emjoi face here}!  I may have to work a tad on my stomach area, but everyone has flaws, so work it!  The pleating makes it a bit more full of a skirt, but I had my seamstress take it in to create more of an A-line.  I'm a curvy girl so I don't really need MORE skirt!  Hey!  It also comes in a plus size too!  You may even see this look during track season! :)

So much fun was had during my 28th year and I'm so glad you all got to witness it!  Here's to wrapping up my birthday month and to a full year ahead being 29!  28 was a great year and I'm looking forward to what this year holds for me, for John and I (and starting our 3rd year of marriage), the places we'll travel to and the future of my blogging career!  It is going to be jam packed exciting!

Tomorrow I'll post a round up of June blogs - it'll be a great and easy way to play catch up if you've had a busy summer like I have and want to see some of the great items I've linked!  Be sure to catch me on Pinterest at Closets & Corks and Instagram @closetsandcorks! :)

patio dinner

Dress:  TJ Maxx (similar here and here)  |  Wedges:  Target (similar here)  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  |  Evening Bag:  Gift Brittany when she was in Greece (LOVE this)  |  Necklace:  RocksBox - Perry Street  |  Lipgloss:  NARS

Here's another "red" number!  This time a bit of a coral color - my favorite for this time of year!!!  John and I are headed out to LI for a weekend to celebrate a friend's engagement!  I'm really excited because I've never really "been" to LI.  I'm looking forward to wine tasting, the duck farm - I'll explain later - and hoping to make it to Montauk (fingers crossed)!  I'll try and keep up with the social media this weekend!  I'd have to say it's super tough - especially when I want to be in the moment!  I'm working on it that's for sure!  I hope you are doing something fun and new on your weekend as well!

P.S.  Love my necklace?!?!  Make sure you use 'closetsandcorksxoxo' and sign up to receive RocksBox yourself!

secret garden

Dress:  Loft (similar here)  |  Heels:  Nine West (similar here)  |  Necklaces:  1/2  |  Clutch:  Cole Haan (gift - similar here)  |  Hat:  Crafty me! (legit one - here)

I was super excited to see the rose garden this year!  I always either am too early or too late and this outfit was perfect (and it reminded me of our rehearsal dinner)!   I love a pop of red and I've been obsessed with these heels.  I'm still trying to take it easy with my ankle, so I've been flip flopping wearing heels and flats, but I think I'm almost there.  I'm just happy I found a summer black heel!  What's your favorite color to wear that you feel your best in?!

P.S.  I totally forgot to share my spicy marg recipe...so here it is!

1 part Grand Marnier

2 parts Tanteo Jalepeno Tequila

1-1.25 limes - squeeze all the juice out of one lime into the drink and save a quarter of another lime for garnish

3 ice cubes

If you don't want it spicy or as spicy, I replace it with silver tequila (brand is your preference - I like Milagro)
