Everything I Learned From Planning my Wedding

Don’t check the weather.

Order a clear plastic umbrella a few months ahead of time just to be safe ($14, amazon.com), then stop looking at your weather app. People will text you and call you to tell you they checked the weather. Ignore them. There is zero point in stressing about things that exist outside the realm of your control. Think about something else. Besides, overcast skies are better for photos anyway. Mother Nature is like a dragon: She will do whatever she wants, even on your wedding day.

But then, maybe we were too busy trying to dress for our given decade to notice that they were always cool. Granted, there are a few trends that we wish would just stay away, like manpris, terry cloth, bike shorts and butterfly clips on adult heads (never again). Inspired by the best looks of the decade and the style icons that made them timeless, this season we’re pairing our patched denim and nerdy graphic tees with our favorite fall staples. While you’re fishing the grunge out of your closet, make sure to call your mom and apologize for telling her that her mom jeans weren’t cool. Read More
