engaged!

dress: Study NYC [exact] bag: Baggu [exact] shoes: Miista [exact] earrings: Anthropologie [similar] This Christmas I joined the ranks of clichΓ©d masses who get engaged over the holidays. It’s kind of funny that he popped the question over Christmas: it really did just kind of happen that way.
