Shabby Apple Tulle Skirt




I hope everyone had a happy 4th! I am really excited to share these photos that my friend Blake shot last week at the Rose Gardens by Lake Harriet. If you’ve never been there, and you live in Minneapolis – it’s a must see/go place this summer.

The skirt is from Shabby Apple, and it’s the kind of tulle skirt I’ve always wanted to have. I had a really hard time deciding between the lengths, but went for the maxi. It is so unique and special and makes me feel, well, like a princess.

I paired it with a few of my favorite pieces, like the graphic Tee from Minneapolis Institute of Art, and two of my button downs. The skirt calls for heels and fancy necklaces, as well as red lipstick and a lot of smiles.

A few of my friends, my husband and I are starting Whole30 tomorrow! So stay tuned for updates, and some delicious recipes! Meanwhile, twirl!

{27 Dresses} Dress 5: The Bridal Shower

2013-07-20 11.45.30

Last Saturday I got to go to Amanda’s bridal shower. She is Sam’s cousin’s fiancee and will soon be joining the family! It was really good to see and meet some of the family members I’ve never met before. I was really excited about finally meeting Sam’s other cousin Michelle, who lives in LA!

The cupcakes were delish too!

We also played a game, where we had to design a dress for the bride! Here is what I came up with (I’ve been really into black wedding gowns lately):
