I Found It!!

The dress I will be wearing to my brother's wedding in October!!
*Thinking about putting a cute chunky belt around it (yes, I'm taking cues from Jillian)...... we'll see :)

I'm super stoked about the whole thing. Not only have I never been to Maryland before, I have a feeling this is going to be a really FUN wedding. Considering my bro and his fiance' are HILARIOUS. They truly are a great match!

So, anyway, I wanted to be swanky for the occasion considering I am a MOM but I don't have to look like one! I found this super cute dress at Ann Taylor online. It was on sale for $59! What a steal. Usually I wouldn't pay that much for an everyday dress, but you can't beat that for a wedding. Anyway, they were sold out of my size online, but I called my local store and they had my size there. So thrilled! Since the closest Ann Taylor is like 10 minutes from my parent's, I sent my mom to pick it up tonight. Her exact words, "Well, honey, it's bold, but I guess it's modest." haha. I LOVE it! She is so funny. 

The colors of the wedding are navy and periwinkle. Of course, not wanting to stick out like a sore thumb, I wanted to get something that would flow with the other colors. I'm sure pictures will be made, and I refuse to not coordinate in some way. So, here I go, in my BOLD dress! Look out Baltimore, here I come. This baby totin', southern talkin', country music listenin', purple dress wearin' girl is on the way!!
