Mint Candy

 

J Crew Sweater & Shorts, Dolce Vita Shoes, Vintage Chanel Bag, Zara Sunglasses, Necklace via Bloomies. Nail Polish: Essie Mint Candy Apple.
This past weekend, Keith and I started our wedding venue hunt. We got engaged a year ago, but knew we wanted to take a year to not stress or worry about planning and to just enjoy our engagement. The time has come to get the ball rolling, and last night we had dinner and cocktails to scope out the atmosphere of a place we've been eyeing. So far, so good, but of course we have a list of places we want to check out. Some what stressful, but definitely exciting!

  4. I LOVE the color of those shorts - and the way you styled them with the pink sweater but edgier shoes is fabulous! Is it bad that the pic of those cocktails makes me want one this early in the morning?? It's definitely Monday...

  21. Good luck finding a venue and with all of the upcoming planning!! That's one aspect that I'm not looking forward to minus the cake tasting and dress shopping part, lol.

    I bought and returned that sweater recently. I loved the color, but didn't think I could deal with the sheerness and a potential linen mess later.
    You look great in it though and I really loved the unexpected minty green pairing!!
