Springtime means lighter, happier looks

To anyone that knows me, it is no secret I live for Spring and Summertime. I tolerate Winter, i really like Fall but nothing compares to the warmer seasons.

The smell in the crisp warm air that May brings, the celebrations of summer, BBQ, the beach, a glowing tan, sandy hair, shorts, drives without the rooftop on, creemes, the lake..my list goes on. 
My romance with my husband started in the Spring. My best moments in life typically fall in the Spring and Summer. Having grown up in the city, summer in New York City cannot be explained through words, it’s an experienced everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.
Getting ready for Spring and Summer calls for new outfits, and I’ve already embraced that!
Clean, fresh new look, simple All American dress from my favorite +Old Navy  and +TOMS sneakers.
Bring it on Spring and Summer.

Weddings, Style & Fashion

How did I become a wedding planner? I love weddings, it’s plain and simple. I love beauty, I love color palettes, there’s many things that I am not talented at but I know for a fact I am a talented stylist.
Both in fashion and event planning, colors and themes speak to me. That is how I express myself, that is how I “speak”. When I got married, it sparked my interest and motivation to formally pursue this venture.
When I was younger I used to dream of becoming a fashion designer. Unfortunately that never happened for me so I had to find an alternative route, what else could I do that still allowed me to play with colors and beautiful things? Oh yes fashion styling and wedding planning!
On top of that, there was my bursting urge to become an entrepreneur. The idea of creating a company from scratch, gain clients, show my work to the world was too fun not to chase down.
However, I’ve always kept my love for fashion and through this blog I hope to keep my love for fashion styling alive and well. Nothing makes me happier than putting together outfits, fashion styling myself and friends, sharing it on this blog and eventually formally complementing my wedding business with a fashion styling business. 
Weddings + Styling + Fashion = Happiness

Where do I begin?

I’m a wedding planner, fashion lover, mother, wife, Marketing Manager, friend, etc, traveler, foodie,etc, etc..

I’ve been dreaming up this blog since I was 18 years old. I’m 31 now and something feels right enough to begin this blog and stay with it.

I’m going to share here my favorite things: my life as a wedding planner for my business Harlow & Dahlia Events, my passion for travels, my love affair with clothes, good food & drinks and how I try to lead a healthier lifestyle.

I’d love to inspire other women to venture out to be an entrepreneur just like I did!

Join me on the road!

Love,
Claudia
