Express dress, last year. Love this for Fall
Sole Society pumps, similar. Love these

One of my friends is getting married in October, and this is what I wore to her tea themed bridal shower. She's the last in my close circle to be tying the knot, and I am honored to be a part of her wedding just as she was in mine. It's a funny thing, really. I mean, this whole getting older thing. Just a few short years ago, my girlfriends and I were all either single or in horribly awkward, dead-end relationships. We would go out every night and have way too much to drink. We would commiserate together, share laughs together, and more often than not, we would cry together. Fast forward to today and we still do many of these same things. Some of us have children, some like myself still don't. But we have all managed to stick by each other, even if we live miles apart and have more responsibilities that take us away from one another. My husband is my most intimate friend, but I still need my girlfriends and they still need me. There's a huge comfort in knowing that, especially when times are tough. I hope you, reading this, have the same experience with your girlfriends. 

I just wanted to get that out there. 

my beautiful friend and bride to be

Happy Wednesday! Hubby and I are camping for the next two days and guess what? It's on the beach where we got married last year. We are also seeing Jack Johnson on Saturday, so we are both looking forward to a relaxing 5 day weekend! Have a great Labor day and I'll see you soon :)


  1. The tea party bridal shower looks so fun and fabulous. :) Having good girlfriends is so important in life (at least to me!) and I'm glad you've been lucky in that department. Love the blue dress and leopard pumps. The white nails look great on you too!

    1. Thank you Gina, her bridal shower was so well done! The details made it. I wish I had taken more pictures of the house, my friend's aunt was a fabulous hostess! And thank you, I love blue as everyone can tell. The white color on my nails is by cover girl! Not sure of the name but it's great. I'm going to wear it again this weekend...white for Labor Day ;)

  2. Love that dress and color on you!

  3. Cute dress! it's such a fab colour!

    xo T.

  4. We did both wear blue! I used to shy away from blue, but I am loving it more and more now. Like you said, it's a universally flattering color. This is the perfect outfit for a shower. You look beautiful!

  8. Love the idea of a tea party themed shower - so much fun! I agree about the importance of girlfriends - it's amazing how much better I feel after I get a chance to hang out with my friends :-)

  9. Looks like you had a blast! I seriously love this color combination. It's so unexpected but somehow it works. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I love that blue shade, gorgeous!:)

  11. That bag is stunning. :) I saw a similar Kate Spade one at Costco today and those things in Australia are usually super expensive but the one at Costco was priced like US prices.. I'll have to do some saving up though, it was $400..

    In case I have not already left a comment, this is just a quick note to say hi. I visited your blog during the month of August and I liked what I saw, so I've added you to my feedreader and am following your blog. :)


    1. Thank you so much, it makes me so happy that you enjoy my blog :) Kate spade bags are pricey but I think worth it! Mine has held up so well and I've been carrying it non-stop! I hope you are able to add one to your wardrobe :)

  12. Looks like a great tea party shower!
    And I'm jealous of your beach time! Hope you are nice and relaxed!
