Wedding Guest (III): September 1st, 2012
Event: Liz & Ty’s wedding
Outfit: Dress: The Limited; Belt & bangles: Target; Heels: Steve Madden; Clutch: Coach
This dress is very similar to the dress I wore to Jake’s wedding, but with a hi-low hemline and a different neckline. I like it better as a more casual dress, but as I’m long overdue for a trip to the dry cleaners & had few choices…it did the job this weekend! I think I just might make it through wedding season without repeating an outfit (good job, closet!). Three down, three to go.
Liz and I were friends and, well, in competition throughout high school. We both were pretty rockin’ at the clarinet (if I do say so myself), and frequently were seated next to one another throughout our years in band/orchestra. I remember keeping our audition talk to a minimum, which allowed us to have a close friendship in spite of this. We went onto different colleges/grad schools (always managing the occasional reunion), but wound up in the same profession! And then, last year, Liz came and worked at the same building as the K-4th grade speech path. It’s a crazy small world, folks.
Liz and Ty got engaged on the day my ex called our wedding off (ha, fun fact), but I enjoyed hearing about her wedding plans this year and seeing everything come together. It was my first experience being exposed to lots of wedding talk when that was, well, no longer a happy topic for me…and I was relieved to realize that I’m still all for indulging in it when it comes to my friends. Was happy to see Liz and Ty tie (hehe) the knot yesterday at a beautiful resort. Rain, you should’ve stayed away, but the ceremony was still lovely, so TAKE THAT.
One week off, and then it’s time for childhood-friend Heather’s downtown Chicago nuptials. Ooh. Time to up the fanciness factor!
2012 wedding looks thus far:
