Wedding Guest Dress!

I wrote a post about a month ago about dressing for weddings. I hoped that it would be helpful for all my readers, but in reality it was my way of trying to plan outfits for the multiple weddings I've attended this summer! Is it just me or is someone else getting engaged EVERY time you open Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter?? It's crazy!

If you haven't heard, I am in Ireland attending a wedding of two amazing people that KB and I are lucky enough to call friends. When we heard they were engaged and planning a wedding in Northern Ireland we immediately booked our tickets so we could celebrate their big day with them! There's a group of about ten of us that hopped the pond to attend and we've had SO much fun. So before I jump into the outfit part of this post: Congratulations to the happy couple!!!

So even after all that careful planning and blog writing and ticket booking I started to pack and couldn't find anything in my closet that I was excited to wear to the wedding. I found a few things online, but with the shipping I couldn't get them in time, which gave me the perfect excuse to go shopping in London. (Looking back I might have self-sabotaged for a reason!) I wandered around and tried a few things on, fell in love with a pink Missoni dress on sale at Harvey Nichols, and then went into Karen Millen. This blue lace and floral dress caught my eye instantly! Then to my surprise, my super generous boyfriend got it for me as a belated birthday gift. He's just the best!

Of course, a new dress calls for some pretty new shoes. Actually, the heels I brought in my suitcase to wear ripped at one of the seams walking to dinner in London so wearing them to the wedding wasn't really an option. Just goes to show that you have to be flexible when you're traveling!

Kurt Geiger is one of my favorite shoe companies so I knew that's where I had to go. I found a gorgeous pair at Nordstrom Rack a year ago and have been obsessed ever since. This gold pair is really similar this Dolce Vita pair or the Sam Edelman Yardleys, but I like the heel so much better. Plus, like the dress they were on sale!

We are now on a train headed down to Dublin. I'm drinking a huge Americano and trying to wake up after partying all night at the wedding. Seriously, the Irish know how to party. It's going to be a long travel day, but being with friends and celebrating all night with them was so worth it!

Love you lots,
