Senior Homecoming ❤



















Hello there everyone!
Last night was my senior homecoming dance and it was absolutely everything I could have hoped, dreamed, and wished for... I tried relinquishing control for one night and tried relaxing instead... It worked out pretty well I must say!

I spent all day getting ready because I did my own hair, makeup, and nails. I wanted to do somewhat sophisticatedly sexy (what,me sexy?!), 1940's, Marilyn Monroe esque theme this year and I feel as though everything came together exactly how I wanted it to! I thrifted my dress back in July for $65 dollars, created a subtle smokey grey eye, curled my hair with foam rollers to get retro waves, and painted my nails sparkly silver. I also had to wear some incredibly high 5 and a half inch heels so my dress didn't drag on the ground! I can say with all honesty though I didn't fall,ha.

Matt looked seriously SO handsome last night... It was probably the cutest I've ever seen him look! What can I say? I'm one lucky lady to have him :) We went and took pictures at the local nature center and then went to Applebee's like we do for every school dance. After having a delicious meal we drove to the dance and seriously I couldn't have asked for a more perfect night... Matt and I aren't really big dancers, but we did dance quite a bit and of course swayed to a few slow songs, heh.

As a freshman I could have never imagined my senior homecoming being as lovely as it was... When I came home last night I laid in my bed and just thanked God so incredibly much for blessing me with a wonderful date and a wonderful time. I know years from now I can proudly tell everyone that my senior homecoming couldn't have been any more magical ❤

With much love, Lauren.

You two look great together. Your dress really flatters your womanly figure and your boy looks adorable. :)
I couldn't help but thinking how much fun it would have been to double date to the movie 50/50 hehe.

Ah that's so nice! So glad you had a great time!! The two of you look wonderful! Excellent coordination. Matt managed to carry off that shade of pink in a brilliant way- subtle but eye-catching but not girly- masculine! Not easy for a guy in that shade!
You look beaaaaautiful!

Stacey Kay said...

I guess I didn't realize you were so young. I wish I would have had your confidence/sense of style at your age. You looked so good here. Great job putting it all together.

Oh Lauren, you are so beautiful. That second picture really caught my eye and made me look at it for a long time. You and Matt are perfect together. I have to say that pink is probably one of the best colors for you, you look stunning! <3

Mila said...

Oh my goodness Lauren, if you ever wanted to model, you would be absolutely perfect for it--you're completely gorgeous. These pictures made me so happy for you, and you looked beautiful. That dress was made for you, even if it's not your usual style. The whole look is just so entirely perfect! <3 I hope you had an absolutely amazing homecoming night, and by the sounds of it, you did. I felt like your parents or something looking through these photos--it made me feel happy and proud inside :)

I love the sweet comments you leave me Lauren, You certainly know the right things to say! You look absolutely stunning in this dress. Pink really compliments your skin :)

- I also wanna add that hearing words from you encouraging me to talk to god and pray help me so much, I come from a small town where you're either a partier or a church gal and very few go to church.. I love reading your comments its nice to have someone here for me with similar views. :)

claire said...

Jamie Rose said...

Aw you look so so pretty in your pink dress! Very glamorous! You did a great job on your hair and the boyfriend looks nice too!

Ana Nortcele said...

You look like you're covered in diamonds! That dress is stunning, I absolutely love the pink sparkly look! And your hair does look very 1940's glam, so great job on that. I'm glad you guys had a fun time!
