Ahhh…weddings.  We celebrated our 23rd anniversary on April 22 so it’s been a while since I was a bride.  I have three girls so I do have a few weddings to look forward to!  The daughter of my very best friend’s, Tanya Foster, is getting married in a few weeks. Tanya’s daughter was my youngest daughter’s first babysitter and sweet mentor to my older girls and we truly adore her!  I’m honored to be one of the hostesses of her Bridal Luncheon so I have weddings on my mind.

I wore this gorgeous dress from the new Gal Meets Glam Collection to celebrate our anniversary two weeks ago.  This collection is created by Julia Hengel, one of the bloggers whose style most closely fits mine and truly inspires me.  She was in Dallas last night and I was supposed to attend a reception but soccer mom duties won, of course!

The details of this dress are perfection.  The brocade fabric is gorgeous and highlighted with gold lurex thread.  The price of this pink and gold brocade dress might be the most stunning…$188.  The cut, fit and luxurious fabric all make it look like a dress that would be at least twice the price.

A little word about this darling blush circle bag.  It was a gift to me from The Daily Edited when we met at the rewardStyle Conference.  It is so fun to carry and has been popular since I posted it on Instagram.

This dress would be perfect for a day or evening wedding or even a bridesmaid’s luncheon!  I can’t wait to wear it again.  With wedding season upon us as well as graduation, Mother’s Day and more, I present these beautiful dresses that will have you looking your best at any of these occasions.

And, yes, I know there are a few white dresses on here.  I’m not suggesting you wear white to the wedding but rather thinking about what a bride might wear to rehearsal dinner or an engagement party or the perfect white dress for another occasion. They were just too pretty not to include.



PS – Don’t forget to share this post with your dad and hubby for Mother’s Day and also leave comments to win one of three gift boxes for May!  I’m working on a new gift for my newsletter subscribers so be sure to register here so you’re the first to receive it.

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
