My apologies, because chronologically, this is one day out of order. This is the outfit that I wore to to my sweet friend, Lizzy's wedding. I have known her since she was a little girl, but the older she gets, the smaller the age gap gets. I met Lizzy and her brother Alex because our mothers' great friendship, but as time marches on, we take over our own mantle of friendship. I have been to many weddings-but this one was incredibly special, for so many reasons: namely, it was a gathering of some of my favorite people in the world, and clearly a wedding of two people that are absolutely perfect for each other. That spirit was omnipresent in this storybook affair. I thought about wearing a vintage dress, but decided against it in the end, because if there is one thing I LOVE about a wedding is dancing. And devil be damned, I was not going to worry about tearing a seam. or ripping a chiffon overdress. So I opted for a simple, yet pretty limited edition liberty print gown (for shhhh......Target!) embellished with one of my mom's fantastic animal belt buckles. The one I chose was two giraffes, neck and neck on a linen belt strip. She would have loved it. My mom would have loved this wedding for so many reasons, and I felt so honored to be there. Mom, I promise, i sent everyone love from you, and that I felt you right there by my side.
