Engagement Photo Dresses

My idea for our engagement photos was that we could have one nice, fancy look and one casual look.  I looked around myself and only found one dress I liked, and then I realized I could ask my Trunk Club stylist, Taylor, to help me out and see what she could find. I will tell you she did NOT see the dress that I bought before sending me the 2 she sent, she just nailed what I was looking for that well!
These are from my latest Trunk, which had 8 other items in it as usual. That whole review will be up later this week 🙂 If you’re interested in trying Trunk Club, use my link to use my same awesome stylist, Taylor!
After trying them all on and struggling with which I liked best, I thought I would throw it out to you guys to help me decide! Please leave a comment letting me know which is your favorite! Our photos are NEXT SATURDAY, the 24th! Which is also our one year anniversary 🙂
First, the dresses from Trunk Club:
Option 1: Whenever You Call Maxi Dress – $84, XS
This is veery sexy! It fit like a glove and Jake obviously approved. But I wasn’t sure if it was engagement photo worthy. I do love the open back detail and the mermaid style. It’s very flattering for sure. But the snugness also made me worry it’d be difficult to move around in.
Option 2: Bell Sleeve Maxi Dress – XS, $198
Oh, I love this dress. It’s beautiful! Chiffon is one of my favorite materials. The sheer bell sleeves are gorgeous, and the back! Oh my gosh the back. I love the little bow. I told Taylor if I loved a dress, I would splurge on it. This one being almost $200 was rough, though. And my biggest issue is the deep cut in the front. Jake said this was a Mortisha Adams dress, haha. I’m a big fan of keeping things modest, and I’m not sure that neckline would be appropriate for engagement photos that my whole family (and Jakes!) are going to see. 
And now, the dress I got myself:
Option 3: Awaken My Love Long Sleeve Dress – $86, XS
You can see how similar this is to the first one! Same brand and everything. I do love this dress. I’m covered for the most part with a pretty open back detail. My concern with this is the pleats at the waist aren’t flattering on my stomach, so I worry my stomach might look preggo depending on the angle, which I do NOT want! I’m wondering if I steam it if that’ll help.
Please share your thoughts so I can decide before next weekend!!

  • 🥰Our first Valentine’s Day being married was so special! Nothing like getting a beautiful arrangement of roses, right ladies?! Jake had them use pink and lavender roses and lavender sprigs between them to fill it out instead of baby’s breath. It smells so good!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day ❤️
  • Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m working on a little DIY a project today 😍 can’t wait to be done and see the finished result. And to celebrate ❤️ day with hubby later! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with love. P.S. — 2 years ago I was single on Valentine’s Day and I made myself a whole cake 🎂 so don’t be afraid to treat yo’self 😎 just sayin! http://liketk.it/2zVm3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
