The Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, and our Bride all wedding dress shopping in St. Louis. Our girl took us to 4 different bridal shops, only to end up buying the very first dress she tried on. :)
|For a day of wedding dress shopping, I wore my Paws Off Elsa (older print, similar here), navy Heidi cardigan (old, similar here), J. Crew navy Pixie Pants, and Frye Melissa Button riding boots (I wear the extended calf). Elsa tops with Pixie Pants and boots are pretty much my fall/winter wardrobe!|
|Our classic "pose". There are pictures of us doing this at Mizzou graduation, random nights out, my rehearsal dinner, my wedding, various events for M's wedding, etc.|
|I wore my navy Lilly Pulitzer Charlena dress (older, similar here or here) with Kate Spade Karolina bow heels in seafoam (older color, similar style found here)|
Fast forward about a year, which included my wedding, the birth of my baby boy, and life in general. I was unable to make it to the bachelorette weekend in Nashville because I was still on maternity leave, but the whole family made it to CoMo for the bridal shower!
|Another even, another piece of Lilly! I pulled out my favorite Lilly Pulitzer Delia in Fountain Hopping for the occasion (similar here) and paired it with a navy Amalie cardigan and my blinged out Jack Rogers sandals.|
|The Bride and her Maids! Pulled out my Lilly Pulitzer Cadence dress in Dripping in Jewels. I adore this one! One of my all time favorite prints, and such a fun and flattering style! (similar here and here)|
|These girls <3|
|If you went to Mizzou, you know it's goals to drink Champagne on the Quad!|
|Baby man pooped out in his Tula carrier the next morning! I love my Lilly Pulitzer Hillary Pullover for relaxed, throw on and go looks!|
|Baby G and his favorite Bride at the Farewell Brunch!|
|Just a little throwback picture- way back to 2011! These girls have been there for me through thick and thin and I am so grateful we are still doing life together!|
Despite the expense, headaches, hard work, and drama involved in being in someone's wedding, I wouldn't trade it for anything! I love that I had the chance to be in this dear friend's special day. I can't wait to see what other big, special events we get to be a part of together!
