Mondays a la Mode – Bridal Shower Style!

August 20, 2012

As I mentioned the other day, my mom, sisters and I threw a bridal shower for our soon-to-be sister-in-law yesterday, and guess what – it was a hit!  Everyone had a really great time and a few of the guests told us how well they thought we did with the whole event, from the decor to the activities.  Naturally, I took a million photos (okay, more like 250), so I have a lot of sorting and a bit of editing to do, but I promise I will post pictures of the event later this week.  Today, however, I wanted to share my outfit and just a few family pictures.

I wore a hot pink floral print dress from American Eagle with my favorite tan leather platform wedges.  I kept the accessories minimal because it was killer hot yesterday and the dress has a pretty loud personality of its own, so I simply wore a tiny gold heart necklace and matching thin gold chain bracelet.  I also added another teeny pop of color with navy stud earrings to pull out the navy flowers on the dress and, of course, my matching hot pink nails.  Here is a picture of me with the bride, Samantha!

She looked darling in her pale, off-white “bridal” dress, don’t you think??  A few more pictures of the lovely ladies I call family:

Three generations from left to right: Kristi (me, duh), Addie (my grandmother), Nancy (my mom), Sarah and Kasey (my two sisters).  I have to admit, I am part of a very beautiful – and stylish – family!

With the bride: Kasey (my sister), Kristi (me again), Samantha (the bride and soon-to-be sister-in-law), Nancy (my mom) and Sarah (my sister).

I had so much fun yesterday, I can’t wait to get more pictures together to show you the rest of the shower –  coming sooooon!  Thanks for reading :)

    Darling!! It looks like it turned out GREAT and it’s so fun to see pictures of you with your family. Okay please next time we are in the same state help me with my fashion. I need versatile pieces and have a hard time brainstorming how things could look together and also breaking out of my norm.
