A Nantucket Wedding

My friend, Carrie, is headed to a wedding up in Nantucket in the near future.  Upon her request, I decided to put a few outfit pairing together inspired by the seaside town.

Option 1: Olive and Blush
1 - 1A -1B -1C -1D -1E -1F

 Option 2: Olive, Reds and Teals
2 - 2A - 2B - 2C - 2D - 2E

Apparently I was on an olive kick, who knew? I may have cheated a bit as well though.  Only in the way that she told me she was thinking about buying option 1's dress.  Might as well have a jumping block!

I've never been to Nantucket, but it seems like this beach wedding will go off without a hitch...or actually, with a hitch! (bah dum, ching!)

J.Crew Fall, Too Soon?

I hate to admit it, but seriously J.Crew knows what they are doing. While on their site the other day (sale section, of course) I noticed they had a fall wedding preview up. From the photography to the colors and styles, let's face it, they nailed it.

J.Crew Fall Weddings

Hello little red dress, thank you for being something I could wear again after the wedding. 

Although I'm not the biggest fan of long bridesmaids dresses, I can't resist magenta and navy.  So, I decided to have a little fun with the color palettes.  Oh, how I love color.

Magenta, Coral and Aquas 

1A - 1B - 1C ; 2A - 2B - 2B.5 - 2C ; 3A - 3B - 3C

Navy, Aqua and Orange 

1A - 1B - 1C ; 2A - 2B - 2C ; 3A - 3B - 3C

Well done J.Crew, well done.  And the brightly adorned maids, frolicked in their fall weddings and lived happily ever after.

For the Love of Hearts

Alternative wedding rings/bands have been going around the blogging block these days.  Why leave all the love and hearts to the bride and groom though?  Or mainly the bride, I don't really see a lot of grooms running around sporting bands with hearts engraved all over them.  (More power to ya if you ARE that groom who's an exception to the rule!) I may have a slight obsession with the hearts (As Februrary's I Heart Hearts might have given away!) but why not show your bridesmaids how much you "heart" them with one of these rings.  Hello cutesy bridesmaid gift.

Clockwise: My Love Ring ; Baby  Heart Chain Ring ; Black Heart Ring ; Just a Tiny Heart Ring ; Double Heart Ring
I'm privy to the Baby Heart Chain Ring.  Not that I pick favorites (Said while covering the ears of all the other rings.)

Let Them Wear White

If the Brits can do it, why can't we?  Ok, I'm a little behind on this Bridesmaids wearing white trend, but I do think it could be a fun idea.  Throw tradition out the window and let everyone sparkle in white.

 Oh yeah, this might have been a bit of inspiration as well. Hello band wagon, let me jump on!

So where does one go for white dresses that their friends/maids can wear again?  While over at my friends house for a bbq, I ran up to use the loo and noticed a bridesmaids dress hanging from her bedroom door.  I had heard she was ordering a French Connection dress for her best friend's wedding, but be still my heart.  Hence my  B line to French Connection's site.

I have no idea when I became a fan of Nordstrom.  It does seem to be my go-to-one-stop-shop when I want to find the goods. If I had to take a stab at the foundation of my relationship with the department store, it might have been when I found my Ann Klein watch there.  It hasn't left my wrist, and the site hasn't left my favorites folder since. I even like to add it to random MissedMatched outfits.

What more do I enjoy than clicking on links of links? Nothing. Especially when I stumble upon fun online shops such Adam Lippes.  It's a little pricier than I usually am attracted to, but hey, if you're going to splurge.

And they all lived happily ever after...until they encountered red wine and a dance floor.  I jest...kind of.
