Senior Prom Today!!

Besides today being my last day of high's also my senior prom!! I have shortened classes in the morning, then a quick yearbook dedication, then I'm spending hours getting ready for prom! I'm going to work out immediately after school, then I have an appointment at the salon for my prom hairstyle! A couple of my friends are going to get ready at my house beforehand (like last year) then it's off to pre-prom, prom, and post-prom! Phew! It's going to be a busy day!
Y'all know the dress I'm wearing (the Brennan dress from Lilly Pulitzer Jubilee), and I'm so excited for it. I looooooooove it and I'm finally going to get to wear it!

I've never gotten my hair fixed for an event, so I'm kind of nervous about how it's going to turn out! I'm definitely wearing an updo because my dress has so much going on. I want to get my hair out of the way so I don't have to worry about it! I loved my hairstyle last year, plus it was super easy so I did it myself, but I was really worried about the ridiculous humidity and heat. My hair does not handle humidity well when I fix it, so if it's in an updo, I'm figuring it won't be hard to handle at all!

I got a gel french manicure and a regular pedicure for the occasion. I figured coral toes would be flattering for my tan, as well as in a turquoise/gold dress from prom. Plus, it'll look good when I wear metallic Jack Rogers and a white dress for graduation! My mom and I went shopping for prom makeup last weekend and I'm going to be wearing lots and lots of Nars makeup as well as my usual Benefit! Everything will be gold and peach. I'm so excited! I love doing my own makeup, so the sales rep from Nars at the cosmetic store taught me everything I needed to know and gave me a "prom makeover." It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do it again tonight!

I'm wearing the same shoes as last year because honestly, I'm not a "shoe person" and I'm going to end up taking them off the moment I get to prom! I can't walk in heels very well and I'm going to be dancing when I'm not eating dinner, so I really don't think it's worth it to spend a ton of money on a pair of shoes that won't be worn for very long! For my jewelry, I'm wearing a simple sparkly ring and clover shaped earrings. The cool thing about the earrings is that one side is covered in "diamonds," even though you can't see it in the picture. I didn't want to wear much jewelry, plus I really don't need to wear any jewelry because of how elaborate the dress is. 

I think that's it! I'm really excited for my senior prom and I can't believe it's going to be all over this week! I'm happy I was finally asked after weeks of freaking out with my best friends, but we all got asked this year! Granted, 4 of us were asked in the past week and a half, but we all are so happy! This prom will truly be about hanging out with my best friends and I can't wait!

Have a great day everyone!!

xoxo, Hannah
