The Perfect Summer Caftan

This past weekend we celebrated Catherine’s wedding to Kevin and it is safe to say that it lived up to our expectations and then some – well actually a lot more.  I won’t give away too many details; I’ll let Catherine do that when she’s ready to share some photos from the big day! I will say that we danced into the wee hours of Friday morning to the likes of Bieber, Spice Girls + Britney Spears, champagne in hand. And now, Catherine is down south in West Palm Beach enjoying her honeymoon with Kevin and I am extreeeeeemely jealous; I’m sure you all are too.

Unconventional Wedding Attire

Most of the weddings I have attended in recent years happened to be ones where I was a bridesmaid. This meant that my get-up was chosen for me, or in collaboration with the bride, and I did not have to worry about that decision in the least!  When my cousin Caitlin’s wedding rolled around last week, however, I was excited to try something new.  I found these amazing pants at Zara while Catherine and I were in New York and knew instantly that I had to do something really cool with them.

Free People Tank

We are always going on and on about how we have a tendency to gravitate toward all black outfits, and that is certainly true. However, for me, I think I just have a habit of dressing mono-chromatically and that’s why I like the all black.  Here, I still kept with the monochrome look, but instead used different shades of the color for the same effect. I love this Babe Town Free People Top (how sweet is the name?) and have been dying to wear it since I got it for my birthday, but alas, it is the middle of winter. Solution? Blazer. Always, blazer. Always, Theory Blazer.

What’s your go-to piece no matter the season?
