White Out Wednesday

J.Crew Jeans/Limited Top (old) - similar here/Nine West Shoes (old)/Necklace - Paper Dolls Boutique/Kate Spade Sunglasses/Michele Watch/Lagos Bracelet/Rebecca Minkoff MAB Mini

I've been seeing quite a bit of monochromatic ensembles recently and decided I wanted to give it the old college try. To add a little to color to what otherwise could be a pretty boring outfit I added a fabulous necklace I recently purchased from a great local St. Louis Boutique. If' you've never been to Paperdolls and you live in the St. Louis area definitely stop by one of their two locations. You're guaranteed to find something great!

I think I like the monochrome trend. Would you give this look a try?

Blushing...but not the bride

Nordstrom Dress/Belt (old)/Matisse Shoes/Michele Watch/Lagos Bracelet/Mont Blanc Bracelet/Judith Jack earrings
This past weekend my youngest brother tied the knot to his grade-school sweetheart....okay high school officially but my brother has had the hots for her since grade school. And rightfully so, she's pretty cute! The events took place at a winery in Steelville, MO on grass and gravel, which, unfortunately meant no heels. However, I still managed to piece together this ensemble with my cutest flats. Everything from the bride, to the ceremony to the reception was perfect! Congrats Stephen & Ashley!
