B’s Bridal Shower Look









Excitement galore this weekend! Friday, I got to sit in the Social Security office to get my name changed, stuffed my face with some food truck deliciousness (Indian food plus some pulled pork nachos stolen from the husband), drank some wine and listen to some bluegrass with my favorite double date couple!

Saturday was equally fun as well, since I got to celebrate that very couple (B + J) at their bridal shower (and eat more delicious food…including cake balls). I love a good excuse to get dressed up, so the fact that The Husband and I have three weddings (plus all related wedding events) to attend this year makes me happy! I purchased this dress specifically to wear to an assortment of those nicer events, so I was happy to take it for a spin this weekend (especially since it is B’s favorite color).

Overall with this outfit, I think I hit it out of the park for this lovely shower for B. I kept it dressier with my gold belt, but then took it down a casual note with some summer stripe wedges (obsessed with these and might have to get the solid red ones too) that I purchased for my own rehearsal dinner! It was the perfect outfit for mingling, eating more cake balls than I should, and putting together the ribbon/bow bouquet (I mean my bridesmaid duties are really hard, right?).

ps. I didn’t wear my sports watch that I wear EVERY. SINGLE. DAY, so be sure to check out my awesome watch tan line! Sun: 1. Katie: 0.


  • Giiiirl, that belt and those shoes! :)

  • Sarah

    Love love! And still so jealous of your tan!

    • Thanks Sarah! I saw your comment come up when I was stalking your blog, so pretty great timing! ;) And don’t be too jealous, it’s slowly fading (guess I’ll have to go back to the Dominican!).

  • You look lovely! This is definitely the color for you! I’m glad you had a nice weekend!

    • Thanks so much, Sara. I think the photos took a little different color than it normally is, but I will definitely keep this color in mind ;)

  • I love this outfit! You definitely hit it out of the park!

  • Kristen Warren

    look how cute you are! LOVE the wedges. I need them.

    • Kristen – they’re amazing! Weird sizing on some of these. These are 9.5s and are my normal size and fit perfectly, but I bought the red ones too and my right foot (which is normally smaller than my left) keeps slipping out!

  • Rebecca B

    Superrrrr pretty and perfect for the event. Glad you decided to wear it! <3
