Wedding Looks from the Past

I already blogged about my 2010 wedding looks here but thought I would look back to some of my favorite wedding looks from the last several years. I get my dresses on sale or clearance 90% of the time and I recycle the same bags and shoes over and over again.

Betsey Johnson dress, Target wedges, Vintage Christian Dior clutch

Tibi dress, Chanel bag, friend’s shoes (Thx T!)

Saks Off Fifth private label dress, Forever21 studded belt

Can’t remember the name of this brand and I gave the dress to my sister. Got it on sale at Tangerine, one of my fave Chicago boutiques! I loved this dress so much but I found out I was pregnant right after I bought it. I wore it to this one wedding and never again. It was already tight and I doubt I could zip it up now. :(
Is it just me or do you love getting dressed up for weddings too?

Recent Look: Can you tell I love Tucker for Target??

On mommy: Tucker for Target dress, Forever 21 studded belt, Aldo motorcycle boots, Nashelle initial necklace, Louis Vuitton Neverfull handbag
On A: Gingersnaps (Filipino brand) top, American Apparel cardigan, BabyGap leggings, Old Navy boots
I love the contrast of the feminine floral print with the rocker studded belt and motorcycle boots.
After I took the picture above on the stool, A insisted on taking a pic in the stool as well!

We were on our way out to brunch with a friend visiting from out of town. Love brunch!
Sorry if these pics aren’t the best quality. I am home alone with A most of the time so until she’s old enough to expertly handle my camera, the self timer will be my best friend. :) Who takes your pictures if you have a fashion blog?

Pearls & Green Tea on MTV Style

I’d like to thank the academy, my family and friends and of course, Tucker for Target who made all this possible. ;)

Girls Getaway to New Buffalo, MI

A little while ago, two of my best girlfriends and I took an overnight getaway to New Buffalo, MI.  We met when we were all young, single and carefree.  Now, we’re all attached, two have kids and one moved away to SF. This trip was just about the three of us, catching up and being together, without boyfriends or husbands or babies. 

Saying bye to A, who wanted to try on my hat
Cute little lunch spot called Blue Plate!
Next, wine, beer, and spirits tasting at Round Barn Winery
Our suite at the Marina Grand. 
Bike rentals were free at the hotel!
We all hadn’t been on bikes in over 10 years but we went for it anyway and had a blast!
(on me: Forever21 romper, Balenciaga part time bag in Officier, Sue London ballet flats)
Can you believe she just had a baby 3 months ago?? Also, check out her Rebecca Minkoff Stud Rocker! Love!!
We tried to get massages but they were closed. :(
So, we just went back to our room and cracked open a Cab instead. :)
More vino on the terrace overlooking the marina. So beautiful!
Enjoying good food and more wine at Bentwood Tavern at our hotel
Quick pic before heading back up to the room for…
You guessed it! More wine & chitchat!
Bye New Buffalo!

Would you rather do a trip with your significant other or your besties?

In other news, I just started potty training day 1 yesterday! I started after her nap at 2 pm and wasn’t expecting much but she peed 4 times and had 0 accidents. Yay!! I’m nervous about what today will bring though. Any tips and suggestions on potty training?
