this past weekend we attended my step-sisters wedding. it was a lovely evening, filled with delicious food [a pasta bar! a sushi bar! a salad bar! a meat station! a candy buffet! and my fav - an ice cream station!!!], a beautiful bride and catching up with family. it was a perfect day and we had an absolute blast. but then again, since becoming 'mommy' just about any old excuse to dress up makes me deliriously happy!
after not 'feeling' a romantic taupe coloured lace dress that i had originally planned on wearing, i decided to pull out a sheath dress from my closet that i purchased while i was pregnant and hadn't had a chance to wear yet. the florals felt summery enough, while the short length lent a little sexiness to the dress - and bonus! after all that eating, i didn't feel restricted in some tight outfit!
for some finishing touches, i added some tan heels with a bit of edge [a metallic heel! yes!] which added some contrast to the soft florals, curled my hair, and threw on some of my favourite jewels.
