The Duchess Of Sussex's Wedding Dress Was Perfect, Quit Criticizing Her Royal Fashion Choices

The Duchess Of Sussex's Wedding Dress Was Perfect, Quit Criticizing Her Royal Fashion Choices

She doesn't need the decor to show off her beauty. She's about to become a duchess for goodness sake!

You may know (unless you've been living under a rock) that Prince Harry and the former Meghan Markle got married a couple weekends ago! If you haven't seen the highlights of the wedding, do it!!! It will make you believe in love and have your heart melt from the way they look at each other.

As much as we wanted to see the celebrities arrive (did you all see Oprah?!?) and the dreamy groom nervously waits for his bride, we were all waiting to see Meghan's dress!! The moment the Rolls-Royce pulled in front of the chapel, we were all waiting for the glowing bride to step out.

The crowd was so happy to see her! However, not a lot of people were happy to see her wearing that dress. People commented that it was underwhelming, it wasn't fitted well, or it was straight up too simple for someone who is about to become a Duchess.

First of all, she's look beautiful no matter what she wears, if she wore a white trash bag down the aisle, I may question it but she is absolutely gorgeous.

She's an actress, a model, and for goodness sakes, Prince Harry fell in love with her, didn't he??

Second of all, the simplicity of the dress only draws everyone's eyes to her beautiful features. She is a beautiful woman and she can absolutely pull off a white dress without the sparkle and white lace like other wedding dresses. With being the Duchess of Sussex, she has to take up modesty in what she wears and what she does. She doesn't need the decor to show off her beauty.

She's about to become a duchess for goodness sake!

Can we also take a minute to point out that Meghan is an American!? This a huge step for the British monarchy, considering it was frowned upon not too long ago (thanks to the knowledge of "The Crown" on Netflix). This girl is a superhero in my eyes. She can wear whatever she wants!! It's her day. And again. She married a dreamy prince.

But like if you really feel strongly about this dress for its simplicity, look at the gorgeous train!! It was 16 foot long and completely sheer with flowers embroidered in the veil! When the wind picked up, it would send the veil flying if it wasn't for the adorable page boys holding it for her as she practically walked herself down the aisle!!

It's not every day that we see a royal wedding happening, especially an American girl getting married to the royal bad boy.

So, we see your Pinterest board, sweetie. It's full of future wedding venues and dresses that you hope to someday say yes too. But, come on, this is Meghan's wedding day. It's her dress. Her ceremony. Her love story that we were lucky enough to access live from the TV or on our DVR's (because let's be real, 4:30 a.m. was not going to happen for me).

Let her live in the moment and admire that no matter what, she looked stunning.

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

'Sissy, Why is That Boy Wearing Makeup?'

June is time to celebrate equality.


This past weekend, I went to the mall with my family. It was just a normal family excursion, and I wanted to walk into Sephora to show my mom a perfume I liked. We go inside, and my mother and I drift away from my dad and 6 year old sister, Sierra. I showed her the perfume I thought smelled amazing (Roses de Chloé) and we look for my sister and father to exit the store. As soon as we leave, my little sister grabs my hand and asks, "Sissy, why is that boy wearing makeup?"

This was the first time my little sister has ever asked about anything like this, and I wanted to make sure I gave her an answer. I turned to her and said, "Sierra, sometimes there are boys who wear makeup, and girls who may dress like boys. People are allowed to wear what they want, it doesn't matter." Sierra looks up at me, says, "Oh okay," and that was the end of it.

Sharing this experience to say, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!

So thankful to live in a country where all sexual orientations get a day to celebrate their love. That's what this world needs more of-- love. It shouldn't matter who it is, where they are from, the color on their skin, or their gender identity.

When Sierra was born, I always wondered when this conversation would come up. I wondered what I would say, how she would react to it, and how she would be exposed to it. Like I consistently preach, everything happens for a reason, and I'm glad Sierra was able to get exposure and receive an immediate answer. Love is love, and I will forever stand by that.
