On weekends you will most likely find me in some rendition of this outfit.

How gorgeous is that Rachel Pally dress in the last photo and did I mention there is a video? If you haven’t seen it yet, I would head on over to Glitter Guide and give it a gander. It definitely captures the magic of the day.

Here are a few of my favorite shots of the day and check back for more in a few. Also be sure to head on over to Glitter Guide to see the entire feature.

from the weekend: a not so sunny afternoon

a sunny afternoon picnic // smitten studioI have been feeling a bit under the weather the last few days, fighting some sort of cold. So other then a lazy picnic on the beach Sunday, I spent most of the weekend sleeping or watching Friends re-runs and wishing my mom lived closer. I hope you guys had a better weekend!

So… I searched and searched, finding a lot of too frilly or too simple numbers that didn’t quite make the cut, until I landed at Zara and found this pretty perfect wedding guest dress. The structure of the dress, the cut-out back, and the flair of the skirt immediately put me in the necessary dancing mood.

Which, of course, prompted me to climb up on a roof and jump around while Rupert took photos… as one does. ;)
