The Dress Edit | Wedding Attire

Today is a reader request day.  I received an email wanting some ideas of what to wear for Spring and Summer weddings.   Wishing I had a wedding coming up so I could buy one of these gorgeous frocks! There are some really great options right now.  These are great versatile dresses for any kind of event.

This dress is gorgeous and won't break the bank.  Love the colors and pattern.
I can't believe the price of this dress.  It looks way more expensive.  Such a beauty.

I actually own this dress from last year in a different color.  It is such a great, flattering fit.  I love the embroidery detail.

You can never go wrong with a classic black strapless dress.  This is a dress that would never be outdated.
This shift is sitting in my shopping cart right now.  Wishing I had some where to wear it to.  Love the color of blue and the beaded detail.

This dress is my favorite shade of blue.  Just stunning.
You might remember I bought this in the purple color.  Well the black is now on sale 40% off.  Such a fun little shift dress.
This dress is a great price and I love the neon yellow color.  Also comes in blush.  This is a great option for a beach wedding because it would look cute with flats as well as heels.

This dress is such a beautiful shade of pink.  I like that you could dress it up for a wedding or throw on flats for a more casual look, meaning you get more bang for buck.

I have this dress in a different print and love it. The embellished neckline really makes it pop.
 a view of it on me:)

I am always a fan of blush/nude dresses.  The back of this is so pretty.

The simple knot detail takes this plain dress to another level.  
Since many of these dresses are plain I would pair them with a fun pair of statement earrings.

If you need a few sandal ideas, I rounded up a few of my favorites.  I tend to prefer a nude sandal only because they go with everything.

Scenes From Our Weekend

We had such a lovely weekend.

Friday I was able to chaperone a field trip with Sterling's school.  It is always so special to have one on one time with him.  We took the kids to Jeremiah Goat Farm out on John's Island and it was so cool. I think I may have enjoyed it more then Sterling.  We got to see their garden and taste all kinds of vegetables and herbs they grew.  We also got to see some goats and feed the baby ones.

Came home to this sweet girl trying to eat toothpaste.  
She wants to carry her toothbrush and toothpaste everywhere.
Several of you asked about the sandals Frances was wearing.  They are Salt Waters and such great sandals.  I put Sterling in them too when he was little.  They have a hard sole and are great for new walkers.

Friday night we had Happy with my sister and her husband who were in town for the weekend.
I am totally obsessed with watermelon radishes, they are so pretty and tasty too:)
 Busted out my new runner.

We took the kids to the Yacht Club to let them run around.  We didn't last long because it was so windy.

Saturday we took the kids to the Farmers Market.  On the way we stopped at Glazed.  They have the best doughnuts in town.  The girl working there talked me into trying the beet stuffed doughnut.  I know it sounds weird but it was so good.  The maple bacon is always a favorite and Sterling loves the fresh raspberry one.

Best picture we could get at the Farmers Market.  It was such a gorgeous day out.
Sterling has to ride the pony every time we go!
Wore this outfit both days this weekend.  When I find something I love I live in it.  The blouse is now on sale.

Saturday night we kept my nephew while my sister and husband stayed downtown for their anniversary.  The kids had so much fun together.  I love how close they are.  Taking care of three kids was hard though! No rest for the weary.

Had a fun brunch with the whole crew.
Wearing my new sunglasses, that I love!  Mine are the blush color but they also come in 2 other colors.

Frances was laughing so hard at Finley dancing.

Made one of my all time favorite side dishes for dinner Sunday.  Peas and Pancetta from my girl Ina.

Have a great Monday.

Saturday Favorites

 Happy Saturday!
I first want to mention my black one piece that I wore last weekend is back in stock.  I got several requests about it.  It seems to sell out quickly so buy fast if you want it.  Runs TTS, I am wearing a small.

This Joie Blouse was just reduced.  I am wearing the size small.  It is a great blouse for Summer because it is super light weight, I wear a white cami under mine.

Ray Ban Sunglasses are on sale right now at Nordstroms.
I have the green mirrored ones pictured below and love them.  All colors are on sale.
This Free People Dress was just reduced to 40% off.  My friend Courtney wore the white version in Dallas and I just love it.  Also comes in pink as well.

This Holst and Lee Necklace is calling my name.  I have a similar one that I just adore.  I love the hot pink.  Only three left in stock which of course makes me want it more. 

This embroidered top is only $59.  I just ordered the purple version! 

and for the babies.  I had to have this tassel shirt for Frances!

Happy Saturday and Happy Shopping!

Thoughts For Frday

TGIF.  I am so excited because my sister and her husband are in town for the weekend.  Nothing makes me happier than having my sister in town!

I am loving all the new arrivals at JCrew this season.  My second romper I ordered arrived and it is perfection.  The material is so soft and I adore the palm pattern.  I am in a size xs, I found their rompers run on the large side. 

I stopped watching Greys Anatomy a long time ago.  I realized hospital shows were a horrible idea for a hypochondriac.  I just saw on the previews they are killing off Derek and that makes me so sad. 
Dr. McDreamy was the best part of the show.  Anyone still watching?  How does he die?

I could not be happier that it is peony season. They are hands down my favorite flowers.

We leave for trip to the Caribbean in just over a month, so I am full on resort mode shopping.  How amazing is this embroidered one piece?  I know I need to branch out with a bikini but I just love a one piece.

 I am all about some of the pre-released songs from the new Mumford and Sons CD.  The cd drops May 4th and I can't wait to download the rest.
Believe is so good.

I have become obsessed with this cookbook.

This week I made the California Quinoa Salad for lunch and it was so good.  Such fantastic flavors.

If you are looking for a great Mother's Day gift, check out the boxes my friend Karina from Waffles and Honey makes.  There are 3 different boxes you can chose from and you can customize your charms.  I have the spa box and my necklace has a "s" and "f" for my kids.  The box comes gift wrapped and with adorable goodies.  Such a great gift and a great price under $100.

After being out of town last weekend, I have enjoyed my kids so much more this week.  Sometimes some time apart (although it was hard) is good for everyone.  It made me appreciate all the little moments that much more.

I am so excited about my new tote for Summer.  Barrington gifts was sweet enough to let me design my own tote and I could not be happier with the results.  Their new monogram collection is so fun.  This makes a great diaper bag too as it can easily be wiped down.
The Barrington Site is so fun to play around on, so many fabric and monogram choices.

I am hosting a girls supper club for Cinco De Mayo next week.  I am pumped for a fun Mexican themed dinner.  I picked up this embroidered runner this week at World Market and think it will be perfect. Don't forget World Market just started their Friends and Family event you can save 25% on all orders.  Use code FFSAVE.
I am thinking about wearing my tie dye dress for the fiesta and good news it was just marked down to 40% off.  I am wearing a size small.
When did Zac Efron get even more ripped??  Just a little Friday eye candy.

Good advice.
