Spring Wedding Guest Attire: Polka Dot Dress and Purple Bow Sandals

Exactly one week ago I was wearing this silk off-the-shoulder (trend alert!) blue and white polka dot DVF “Camila” dress and dancing at my best friend Gracie’s wedding in Harrisburg, PA! I am guilty of owning this DVF dress in two colors: blue and white polka dots and fuchsia! I just love the waterfall hem on this dress, it moves so beautifully when you walk. I also love mixing unexpected colors, so I paired the dress with purple satin bow heels. They have a little rhinestone glittery clasp on the side. I accessorized the dress with a sleek headband to accentuate off my collarbones, and a red lip to glam up the look!

I can’t believe that Gracie is married!

France Part 3, Antibes: Off-the-Shoulder Silk Waterfall Hem Dress & Classic Slingbacks

This post captures one of my absolute favorite memories from my trip to France. It’s always been a dream of mine to visit the world famous Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. Gwen and I pulled up to the perfectly manicured gates in our little black Cleo, where we were greeted by 4 valet men. After ensuring us that we knew that they did not cause the scratches on our vehicle (haha!) we stepped out and enjoyed the spectacular views from the hotel. My friend Gwen (in marigold Maje!) and I each enjoyed a glass of Whispering Angel rose as we looked out on the incredible infinity pool and the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. I will remember it forever!

For our fancy day out, I wore a new DVF silk off-the-shoulder (trend alert!) waterfall-hem printed dress. I love how the silk is so delicate and billowed in the wind. I kept the look simple, and chic, with a delicate gold necklace, oversized cat-eye sunglasses, and white and nude slingbacks. I love these white shoes- they are the perfect height and are comfortable, and the cut brings back major 80s vibes!

I miss the glamour and tranquility of this place…sigh! The last two photographs in this post are from Hotel Belles Rives…an also spectacular hotel on the drive to Hotel du Cap Eden Roc!

Royal Wedding in Windsor (Part 1)

Last weekend I traveled to Windsor, UK for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! It was so surreal to see the massive castle, and there was such a special light-hearted energy in the air. My friend lives in Windsor, so she hosted a fabulous hat (fascinator) party with lots of her friends. For the occasion, I wore a silk blush pink (trend alert!) hand-pleated Tibi dress (I love all things pleats) with a high neckline and a waist tie. I chose this dress because the attire for the party was “long summery dress”. I own tons of dresses, but not many of them are long! I also liked the slight waterfall hem on this dress- the back is a little bit longer than the front. I paired the look with a black netted and feathered fascinator. Being an American, it was super fun to pretend to be British for a day by dressing up! I kept the look simple with diamond studs and my trusty black block-heel sandals.
