She Said Yes to the Dress

My apologies for my speckled new-post appearances. Things have been a bit crazy as of late. I will not bore you with those details but I am happy to announce that the best friend has found her wedding dress. Being in a bridal salon and experiencing all the excitement of her upcoming nuptials has put me in a decidedly bridal type of mood. So, here are a few of my favorite style-setting brides.

Marie Claire Fashion Find

Cheap and chic... yes, please!! I happened upon this romper yesterday while flipping through the January issue of Marie Claire. It was on a page entitled: Look Like a Million for Under $100. I would love it with a pair of wedge sandals, lots of bracelets, and a chunky necklace.

J.Crew New Collection

I would like to own and wear this outfit on a regular basis:

Fenton-Fallon for J.Crew Carrington crystal bow necklace = AMAZING. I would probably try and incorporate it into any outfit... including the Friday morning tennis outfit complete with sweaty brow and messy hair. My color of choice is the dark charcoal that is shown here. 

Then I'll layer this Ruffled gamine jacket in desert rose.  
(style note: It will be kept open to show sparkly shorts!!) 

These Cleo platform sandals in sienna brown on my feet because I love a wedge with shorts. 

And to top it off, this Metallic Beacon purse in pale gold slung on my shoulder.
