Happy Tuesday, ladies!
Sorry for my delayed absence these past few days—if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was in Hickory, North Carolina celebrating my cousin’s wedding. More on that in a second.
First, I wanted to chat about this super cute TOBI white off-the-shoulder shift dress. Not only are the tiered sleeves so unique, the off-shoulder part of this dress has more elastic than most other off-shoulder items I have meaning it actually stays in place! So, if you’ve been unsure about the off-shoulder trend for that reason, this definitely is a good starter piece for you.
I plan on wearing this number all spring and summer long. It’d be perfect for brunch or drinks on the water—if only the C&O Canal in Georgetown where I shot these pictures was a tad more full ;]. If you aren’t sold yet—it’s lined so no risk of any fashion faux pas and it’s 30% off today!
Now back to another white dress event—my cousin’s wedding!
I headed down to Christina’s big day on Thursday after work and we completed the trip Friday morning. Since I was in the wedding, I wanted to have ample time to get ready before the rehearsal dinner. To me, there’s nothing worse than not being able to shower after a long road trip in the car!
Once we were rehearsed and ready, we had a wonderful Rehearsal Dinner at the cutest warehouse—I love having all my family together and reuniting with the bride’s friends I met at the Bachelorette. Most of my extended family was staying at the same hotel, so we had a night cap before finishing up the day.
Saturday was the big day—and it was seriously one of the best days! All the bridesmaids got ready together in the bridal suite at the mansion where the reception took place, and we had so much fun getting Christina ready for her big day and drinking champagne. After the Church wedding, we enjoyed a wonderful cocktail hour outside, ate a delicious dinner, and then danced the night away.
The drive home in the rain on Sunday was rough—I have post-wedding blues and I wasn’t even the bride!
(Sidenote—brides-to-be, the TOBI off-the-shoulder dress I’m wearing here would be perfect for a bachelorette or shower!)
