Second Quarter Style: 2013

As Ironman training ramps up, I don’t have quite as many opportunities to play with style (or I’m too exhausted to care that much), but I had a couple occasions where I thought I did okay.

We went to go bug a friend at his trivia night; I had no reason to dress up except for the reason that I felt like it. Dress is from Target.

I went to my sister-in-law’s baby shower (going to be an aunt in September! … or August. depends on if that kid’ll stay in …) and decided to have a bit of fun dressing up. Dress, bracelet from Express; necklace from J.C. Penney; belt and shoes from Target.

As you saw in the previous post, we went to a wedding in June. Weddings obviously mean dressing up. Dress is from Kohl’s; shoes from JustFab Online.

Nicole and Angela’s Wedding

In June, Brandon and I went to the wedding of one of my old assistant managers. As it happened to be, it was a same-sex wedding – first I’ve been to, first I’ve been invited to. Brandon was a bit iffy – he was fine going to the wedding, as we were both friends with Nicole and her fiancĂ©e, Angela, is awesome (and has the cutest smile), but he was still unsure about the whole gay marriage thing.

But, going to the wedding, he changed his mind. It was a wedding, just like any other, except both parties were wearing dresses. There were still vows, there was still (some form of) cake, there were favors, there was alcohol, there was dancing … and most importantly, there was love.

Here are my pictures from that day.
