Sweet Summertime

Memorial Day has passed, which in my mind means summer has officially kicked off! Summer is by far my favorite time of year. Tonight I'll be celebrating with my friends at POV and walking around the monuments, because, well, we live in DC and should do that more often, right? Saturday I'll be assisting a fabulous wedding at the Newseum, and Sunday my friends and I will prolong our weekend with brunch and a Nat's game! During the winter months, I'm lucky if I even make it out once a week! Do y'all have any fun plans this weekend?! Happy Summer!

J.Crew Wedding

I tend to have expensive taste when it comes to wedding dresses. Most of my favorite designers make very few dresses under $5,000. Amsale, Oscar, Vera!?! Yes, please! Although, once I really start to think about it, I'm not sure I would ever be able to shell out thousands of dollars on a dress I'll never wear again. And that is where J.Crew's's fab-u-lous wedding line comes in. Few dresses are over $2,000 and some are even as low as $500 (That might sound pricy but wedding dresses are insanely expensive these days--$500 is a steal)! The dresses are simple and modern, and remind me a lot of Amsale's lines, actually. They may lack the exquisite detailing you see on more expensive collections, but that is more my style anyways. And today, this wedding over on Style Me Pretty reassured my love for J.Crew's gowns, especially the Tulipe Bustier Gown--this dress might be my favorite to date! Ok, perhaps it's tied with this beauty, but it scores major points for the $1,800 price tag. I don't even want to know the price of the other!
