We (Jenna Kutcher and I) went to Kitty Hawk this past weekend to shoot a wedding! It was so much fun getting to be her right hand gal and learn some of her amazing photography knowledge. The beaches were beautiful and I hope this post transports you back to your beach or wherever you spent your vacation weekend.
Between this ring and these light pink ruffles I’m definitely feeling feminine and ladylike. I usually don’t go for romantic girly dresses.. but everybody needs a pretty pink dress every now and then. Plus, we were in the Outer Banks beaches – aka – where Nicholas Sparks novels are set, so this dress really seemed to fit the bill. I halfway expected to see Channing Tatum walking out from behind a sand dune. I wish David could have gone with us but he had to work a 30 hour shift Friday morning to Saturday afternoon.
I digress.. on to dress talk: The off the shoulder trend is back in a big way and I’m not opposed at all. I think shoulders are a much more appropriate and becoming part to show off versus the stomach cut out trend – just couldn’t pull that one off, nor did I really want to. Sometimes I just have to say: that is for a 17 year old. Or: I hate that trend. I think fashion is all about wearing whatever makes you comfortable and happy … and for me sometimes that means saying no to the latest and greatest trend.
This dress reminds me of a lot of things – being a ballerina, the emoji of the salsa dancer, and the pink dress I used to dream about from Sound of Music. Isn’t it Nate in Gossip Girl whose favorite movie is Sound of Music? haha … Ahhhh classic.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoy the short week 🙂
