Can it be springtime, please?

Because if it were warm enough to go bare-legged, I would totally be wearing this:

It's been bitterly cold here in Seattle, and even snowed a little bit today (I know those of you in the midwest and on the east coast think us west coasters are such wimps).

Sure, the snow is pretty, I'll give you that, Mother Nature; but so are bright, colorful dresses perfect for early spring. I'm not sure how much more of this Vitamin D deficiency I can take!

Wedding Prep Sneak Peek #1

Reception shoes?


I found them at a thrift store for $7.50. My reception dress (found via Etsy) will have a similar-colored sash (the designer calls it "turkey red!"), but I can't give away any more details about it!

My lovely bridesmaids are all currently dress shopping. I gave them a palette of oranges and corals, and an approximate knee-length guideline, then told them to pick out their own frocks. I wanted them to be able to wear their dresses again, and coral is such a flattering color on everybody that I think (I hope!) they'll actually find future occasions where they can wear them.

I'll be back in the near future with more updates!
