Our last night being engaged!

My dress (on sale for $45!!) // My shoes // Suede Moto Jacket

Jake’s shirt // Jake’s Pants

For our rehearsal dinner, I wanted it to be a fancier event. I love an excuse to look nice, so I requested the dress code be semi-formal or cocktail.

I stuck to the bridal theme throughout my wedding planning process, so I knew I’d wear a white dress. But I also knew I’d probably never wear it again, so I didn’t want to go TOO crazy on it. This brought me to the site Rent the Runway.

If you’ve never been to the site before, they have a TON of options for any kind of event you can imagine. Black tie, wedding, prom, you name it. There are a ton of reviews with people sharing their sizing info and how things fit them which really helped me figure out what size I needed. They let you pick the size you think you are and they also send you a second backup size for FREE! Which was super helpful because I picked a size 0 with a size 2 backup and the 2 fit much better!

Once you pick the outfit you want, you select the date you need it for, they ship it to you, you wear it and look fabulous, and then ship it back! It’s so easy. I got to wear a $400 dress and I only spent $80 for it! And the dress I wore is actually on sale right now for $45!!

My shoes are the same shoes I wore for my wedding. I wore them as much as I could before the wedding to break them in. I made sure to get shoes I could wear again that were dressy but not too “bridal”. I love the look of putting a Moto jacket over a nice dress to give it a little edge.

After the wedding, I shipped the dresses back in the bag they sent them in (which is cardboard free and environmentally friendly!) with the shipping label they included for me. It was so easy and smooth, I’ll definitely use them again.

We had our rehearsal dinner at one of my all time favorite restaurants — Cinzetti’s. It’s an Italian Buffet and their food is SOOO good. I wanted everyone to have variety, great food and to have our own private room. Everything went great and everyone loved the food. If you’re in the KC area and haven’t been there before, definitely do yourself a favor and check it out.

Have a wonderful Monday!

XO,

Dani

  • I think I’m just gonna skip long sleeve season and go right into sweaters. Since I’m always cold, it should work out 🤷🏻‍♀️. I have a very strong love of sweaters and own more of them than anything else. I love to be warm! PS yes, that white stuff on my jeans is SNOW ❄️ WI was freezing 🥶
I’m currently writing my Amazon fall favorites post and this sweater is part of it 🥰. It can we worn off the shoulder like this, one shoulder or as a cowl neck. Talk about versatile 🙌🏻. I also get so much love on this hat, I linked it in this years version which comes in cream and pink.

  • Do you prefer neutrals or lots of color? I obviously love neutrals but pops of color/pattern are my favorite way to spice things up. I’m a big fan of scarves, and this one is a great way to participate in the leopard print trend without it being too much for me. Accessories are my favorite way to change up my wardrobe! 
This scarf and belt are both @amazon wins 🙌🏻 Shop this look at Danithom.com/shop or in the @liketoknow.it app ❤️ http://liketk.it/2FUTj #liketkit #danithomblog
  • An important thing to understand about having a capsule wardrobe is that it can be whatever you want it to be. So many people think they have to stick to the same 10 things and rotate through them. If that works for you, great! But it’s also ok to have more variety if that’s what makes you happy. I used to try to limit myself to a number, but I wasn’t happy with my closet. So I adjusted it to what I felt comfortable with and it’s been great ever since! Don’t force yourself into a box just for the sake of it. 
This cardi is such a pretty color and only $25! Shop this look at Danithom.com/shop or in the @liketoknow.it app ❤️ http://liketk.it/2FSKO #liketkit #danithomblog

  • Cuddled up today in this cozy $30 OTS sweater 😍 It’s currently snowing here in Wisconsin so I’m curious how the wedding we’re here for will go later! Glad I brought my coat 😂. We’re right on the water BUT since it’s only 32 degrees right now, we’re just admiring from inside 🥶. How’s your Saturday??
