Happy Wednesday! We finally had some sun the past two days (including engagement picture day!!!!) so I'm all smiles writing this on Tuesday night. Luckily, the rain held off for Kelly's bridal shower this past Sunday, too. Hopefully you read all about it in my post on Monday. If not, I suggest heading over there to check out all of the floral decor and details! We had a blast. For the event, I chose a mauve colored jumpsuit from Lulu's: flattering and functional.
I feel like I'm seeing this dusty pink/mauve color everywhere and I'm loving it! I bought this jumpsuit back in February when I first asked Kelly what she thought she might wear to her shower. She had this beautiful floral maxi dress from Loft* that she hadn't had a chance to wear yet, so she was pretty set on it. I knew the color of this jumpsuit would complement her perfectly! And for some reason I thought that was a necessity as her Maid of Honor. :)
(Kelly's dress is sold out, but you can find a few on Poshmark by searching Loft Marigold Off the Shoulder Maxi Dress).
More than that, I thought a jumpsuit made the most sense over a dress or skirt because of the amount of setting up and breaking down I was doing before and after the shower. It also kept me warm for our tour of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden!
I went back and forth on my shoe options for the day, knowing that I wanted style and comfort. I had another more neutral option picked out initially, but in the end I decided that these open-toed, block-heel mules don't get as much wear as they deserve! These were another Nordstrom Anniversary score last summer.
The oldest piece I'm wearing? My jean jacket from SIXTH GRADE. From Abercrombie. Does anyone else have those pieces that are just so well-worn-in and loved and you refuse to get rid of them? Granted, this jacket wouldn't even come close to buttoning up, but for the past 15 (!) years I've lived in this jacket all spring and summer. I've never found another that I've liked as much, from the wash to the cut, to the length. So for now, and for the foreseeable future, the jacket is here to stay.
Enjoy the rest of your day, and see you Friday for Friday Favorites!
