Monday Round Up: Weddings/Bridal Shops + Jumpsuits

Monday, August 22, 2016

Happy Monday everyone! Another whirlwind weekend around here, not to mention an abrupt change in weather. It was a wedding filled weekend, it is quite literally all I did.  Lots of driving but a truly fantastic weekend.

On Friday I really did nothing I worked a bit that day and then sat around. I knew the next two days were going to be super busy so I wanted at least one day with no commitments. D and I watched a movie, of which I fell asleep to, and then went to bed.

Saturday was a big day. I had a friend's wedding in Wisconsin, which was going to take us a little over an hour to drive to. Not to mention we picked up a friend along the way. My plan was to get up, hit the gym and run to the tailor to pick up my jumpsuit (see below). I had dropped off my jumpsuit to be tailored and planned to pick it up on Friday and forgot. Ugh. Not to mention I had to wash it too. I was feeling really tired so getting to the gym seemed too difficult. I did a little at home workout and then looked for my purse to run to the tailor. Turns out my wallet was missing. Last I figured, I had it at Target the day before. I called and thank goodness it was there. I am the luckiest person ever. So I had to run up there, then to the tailor, then home to get ready. By some stroke of genius it all worked out and we were on time, early even. The wedding was in a church followed by a reception in the couple's barn. The weather was cold and rainy so we were a bit nervous. Parking on their lawn was a bit worrisome, we got stuck a bit, and it was cold. I was glad I was wearing a jumpsuit and brought a sweater. We got lucky that the rain quit when it needed to. They did a beautiful job decorating and it was so fun to be there for her big day. We left a little early but we had a long way to drive home so I am glad we left when we did.





Sunday was my little sister's wedding dress shopping day. Eeeee! She has had a long engagement culminating in her wedding next May. We met up at French Meadow Bakery for a little pre-shopping brunch. The food was really good, everything was organic and most was gluten free. It was a great way to start celebrating. Afterwards we hit up the Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul, one of the best bridal shops in the cities in my opinion.  I bought my dress there and had the best experience. It is in an old house in a unique neighborhood. They have done some renovations so the rooms are big enough to fit a few people. She told the consultant some ideas of what she wanted. We helped her narrow it down to two and then eventually she picked one. It is so pretty on her and I cannot wait!




There it is. My whole weekend. A few weeks ago I got the pleasure to work with Isabel Kruse, local photographer, and we shot the jumpsuit I wore to this wedding out by Minnehaha Falls. I styled it a bit differently on Saturday, but not much so this is a fairly accurate representation of how I wore it on Saturday. It was a pleasure working with her and I had never been to the Falls before even though I lived here my entire life. 

I was so glad to have this jumpsuit on Saturday. I was initially worried I would be hot but the temperature was in the high 60s all day, so it kept me pretty warm. It is also crazy comfortable, which I think is my number one comment about clothes, but I loved it. I love the little ties in the front as a fun detail. You really do not need much to accessorize this jumpsuit. I love my block heel, but you could dress it up with a nude stiletto or an updo. I kept it relatively casual, cause the wedding was in a barn. I bought this jumpsuit at local fav Proper & Prim, they know how to pick 'em.
