This week, I'll be celebrating my 2nd anniversary since that memorable, crazy day.
Since I married for life, I assumed one wedding would be all I'd get. And that's kind of a crazy thought because there are
so many dresses to choose from!!
And if you've been following me for a long time, you might remember all my different picks. And then some entirely different different picks. As tantalizing as it was, envisioning myself in bows and lace and grand gowns, I realized at the end of the [big] day, I just want to be myself and feel like me and dress like me: a minimalist, modern mama!
dress: Max Mara / earrings: Nodri / nail color: Revlon "Vixen"
Yes, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, your style is YOURS
and embracing it in everything you do is another way in honoring your unique self. So as much as I had fun sifting through beautiful options that would have all worked out, I'm glad I stayed true to what I love. I found this magically at a designer thrift shop just a block away from where I actually got married. A Max Mara piece from Italy.
Plus in Tiny Closet style, I actually plan to hem this dress one day to wear in more casual settings like cocktail or dinner parties. And to also have a conversation starter like,
"I love your dress!"
"Thanks, I wore it on my wedding day."
Anyway, the main reason I decided to put on this ol' thing (and it still fits!!!) is because I kinda missed out on posed wedding photos on the account of me being 2 hours late for the biggest day of my life. I originally had a wash and go but for this shoot, with longer curls, I decided to do a fun and easy twist out.
For all you newly weds out there considering going natural on your wedding day, this is such an easy style (take a look at how I do it here!) and can be worn everyday or on the day. Classic but also modern. And fancy! I also wore a deep contrasting nail color, wonderful for the season.
With all this memory lane fun, I began surfing around for other gorgeous dresses suitable for Fall that could be great for a wedding, Easter Sunday, date night, badda-bing badda boom! Check out a few of my new picks:

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I'll see ya back here next Monday!
