April Showers (See Jane Wear)

H&M blazer, BB Dakota lace top, Club Monaco skirt, Rebecca Minkoff bag (via Gilt), J Crew shoes (via eBay), UO sunglasses
I had a bridal shower this past Saturday and although temperatures were on the chilly side, I was determined to dress in spring clothes and lose the tights once and for all.  I wanted to wear something feminine and light, so I opted for soft colors and romantic fabrics like chiffon and lace.  The bridal shower was my first and it was so much fun (it was held at Jane's in Chicago...how appropriate!).  It was followed by my bachelorette party that evening where the fun continued long into the wee hours of the night.  I'm just so grateful to my friends and family for hosting and attending all the events on Saturday--I had such a great time seeing everyone and letting loose.  And, let's just say I rode a mechanical bull.


How was your weekend?

  1. Love the skirt and your legs look incredibly long in that outfit. So jealous. I'm also obsessing over the shoes. Hope you had fun during the celebrations.

  9. Okay, first you look GORGEOUS, this outfit is so, so pretty on you! And second, I styled pretty much the exact same outfit on the weekend but then decided that wearing it with tights made it lose something, and decided to wait until I could wear it with bare legs and nude shoes. TOO funny. Glad to hear you had a fun weekend - love that you rode a mechanical bull! Ha! Again, you look SO pretty here, miss Anna! xo.

    And yay for riding a mechanical bull! I've never done it but I've been tempted before. Very tempted.
