1 dress, 3 ways

So, I totally lost it last night. 

It seems the reality of wedding planning, traveling back and forth to Chicago, working a full time job, keeping up the house, and trying to have friends has proven to be a wee-bit too much for this girl.

But, let's be real, I am not the first bride to feel overwhelmed, and I'm sure I won't be the last. 


In other news, I'm heading to Laguna Beach this weekend to celebrate my 25th birthday and totally unwind. 

Next week, we have our final pre-wedding bash in Chicago. The party is on Saturday and then on Sunday we are able to attend Joel's niece's baptism. 

I figured this was as good as excuse as any to stock up on a honeymoon dress too.

So what do all three of these events have in common?

The same....$30 dollar dress.

Now ladies, that is smart shoppin'! 
And yes, you'll see this dress quite a bit in the coming weeks! 


  1. Hot damn I love me a good Target dress. Also I need that aqua necklace in the last outfit.

    Also, hang in there. At least you don't have bridesmaid drama, RIGHT?

    And since I can't blog about it I'll just leave you a comment blog. Is it Sept 21st yet?

  2. I feel ya. The whole WEDDING piece of wedding planing? Piece of cake. All done. No more big decisions. I'm pumped and thrilled.

    Navigating everyone's feelings and very very tricky family politics? Weighs on me every single day. Hang in there girl.

  3. Happy early Birthday! Laguna is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Enjoy!!

  4. I've been really into maxi dresses lately...this one looks so breezy!!

  5. I hope you're enjoying married life and the lack of wedding stress now. I love the three different ways you chose to style the dress.
