A Change in Plans

So, we're not in the Caribbean this week after all. My little nephew got sick, and at the last minute -- at four in the morning as we were assembled at my parents' house about to head to the airport -- we had to cancel our family trip. We're all really disappointed, but it was the right decision.

Being at home Sunday night gave me the chance to watch the Golden Globes, specifically, the red carpet coverage before the awards show. I can't decide which trend I like better -- pretty blush-hued dresses or vibrant-colored gowns. Here are a few of both!

Soft and Pretty

Bright and Bold

  1. I hope it's nothing serious and that your nephew is feeling better. I watched the Golden Globes too and I can't say there were very many gowns I loved. My favourites were Angelina and Charlize. xo

  2. OMG I was so in love with Reese's gown. It's just delicious. I also loved her hair down. Even so, I was equally in love with Kate Beckinsale's ensemble.

    So sorry your trip was cancelled love! :(



  3. That is too funny that we both did a post today on the dress from the globes. I really loved the bright colors as well. Yellow was my favorite :)

  4. Awww sorry to hear that! Hope your nephew is feeling better now. I loved Reese's dress - you can never go wrong with red :-)

  5. Sorry about the trip! I am all about blush tones at the minute!

  6. I'm so sorry your trip was cancelled, but I'm sure it was the right thing for your nephew. Fashion at the Golden Globes was great this year, wasn't it?

  7. Oh sorry to hear about your trip. That's unfortunate. At least you got to watch the GGs but I think I'd give that up for vacay :) xoxo

  8. I am so sorry you did not get to go on your trip...I hope your nephew is okay. Maybe you will get to go soon?

    Soft and pretty for sure! That would be my pick.

    Greetings from Wichita, Kansas!

  9. Sorry to hear that your little nephew is sick, hope he is on the mend and the Caribbean isn't going anywhere anyways!

    I missed the Golden Globes so I am loving reading about it on blogs! I think Jessica Alba looked beautiful! x

  10. Thanks for all the sweet well-wishes for my nephew! He's feeling quite a bit better now, but it's good that we stayed. If you have to be sick, it's always better to do it at home : )

  11. I'm catching up on my blog reading and I thought you were having fun on your vacation! So sorry to hear about your nephew but glad to read that he's feeling better now.
