Perfect Wedding Attire

My good friend, Holly, made a gorgeous bride at her beautiful wedding on Saturday.  



She was married on a breathtaking plantation in Edisto, SC.  It's actually the Ravenel plantation that was featured on the Bravo reality TV show, "Southern Charm".  Nice digs TRav!  This is a picture of his stables and polo field.  


I had all intentions of finding a dress for the wedding while we were in Chicago, but I didn't find anything.  I did a last minute whirlwind dress search on Thursday morning while Baby Girl was in school.  

I struck gold at the Lilly Pulitzer store!

This is now one of my favorite dresses.  It's a gorgeous royal blue color with silver metallic threads creating an all-over design.  It's flowy, comfortable and flattering.  Quite possibly the most perfect dressy occasion maxi dress.



I received so many compliments on it at the wedding and can't wait for another occasion to wear it.  I paired it with silver heels I already owned and simple jewelry.  

Get the look here.




We had a wonderful time and I wish Holly and Joe a lifetime of happiness!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I've had two infusion treatments so far.  They are going fine, though I'm having a few reactions to the medications and feel like I've been run over by a truck afterwards.  I'm confident that all of this is going to make me feel much better in the near future and it will all be worth it.  Thanks again for all of your well wishes and support!
