Welcome to Miami

Last weekend I was lucky enough to see one of my close friends, Veronica, marry a wonderful man. Double lucky because it was in Miami - in January! What a break from this cold Chicago winter. (alright, it hasn't been that bad, but nothing will beat 85 degrees on the beach) The ceremony was outdoors  and beautiful with very simple touches - like the mason jars with simple white flowers and ribbon. It was just before sunset so the lighting was perfect. Veronica walked to Pachelbel's Canon and I, of course, cried like a baby. I can't help it. I'm a sucker for weddings.

Neon Pink Dress - Old Navy ($8!)
Seafoam bubble necklace - Whole Sale Jewelry store
Sequin Clutch - Ebay
Michael Kors Horn Watch - Gift from Ismail
Pastel and Nude Shoes - Guess via DSW

Small story behind this dress - I went out with Ismail in hopes of finding a dress to wear for Veronica's wedding - and we stopped by Old Navy to pick up some jeans for him and they had this dress on super sale! I tried on my size and it didn't fit. I tried on the larger size in purple and it was way too big. So I tried on the pink one again, but a different dress, and it fit. The first one was sized wrong. I'm not very sure if that made any sense! But anyway! I'm just glad I got it! I was also amazed at finding such a fun dress so quickly - and at Old Navy no less. 

I'll post the rest of my trip later on this week or early next week! Hope you guys are having a great start to the new year!
