Wear in the World

Last mention of the honeymoon for a while, I swear.  Here is a quick recap of my honeymoon style.  I didn't go overboard shopping pre-honeymoon, instead I packed some great finds I picked up over the course of my engagement, a few I did save just for the very special trip.  


Dress number one I had been scoping out for a while last summer, when it went on super sale at  Anthropologie, end of season, so I snatched it up and it lived in the back of my closet all winter.  Outfit number two was inspired by this post and I happened to stumble upon a similar bow bandeau in the window of Mystic Boutique, a cheapo shop across the street from my office.  The pants were an awesome impulse purchase during the same mini shopping spree.  The dress in outfit three came from Brimfield Flea Market, and the jacket Club Monaco.  The last dress I bought just a few days before the wedding, while shopping at Lost and Found in Grand Rapids.  I felt like Betty Draper in it and it fit like a glove, I had to have it.

I also have to give a HUGE shout out to the sandals that took me all around Italy for twelve days straight with out one blister, the Sam Edelman Trina Sandal.  They have a the perfect sized gold heel that makes them much easier to walk on for days on end than flats and also the perfect amount of dressed-up.  Definitely want to find myself another pair of these to have onces the first ones die.

Wear in the World

This weekend we left the city yet again to celebrate one of my best friend's wedding.  We traveled two hours by plane, then three by car, to a part of the country I've never seen before, Northern Wisconsin.  The weekend was simultaneously long and short at the same time, aside from the wedding, we were either driving or sleeping for the entire 40 hours we were there.  The leaves have already changed there, and the place seems like it could be fall all-year-round.  It was so perfect.  The one detour we made was to a cider mill.  We took full advantage and got one of everything, since it's probably the only time we'll be able to get fresh cider, donuts and carmel apples for the season.     



The wedding was in the bride's hometown, a little city on a little lake, Hayward, Wisconsin.  There was a cute little downtown area, but my favorite thing about it was that right next to our hotel was a stadium where the Lumberjack World Championships take place.  If I were to spend a day there, I would surely wear plaid in ode to the event.  The weather was perfect in the day, sunny and 70, but it got very cold at night, colder than a girl who just spent two weeks on the Mediterranean was ready for, so I would absolutely dress in layers.
