I love a good excuse to get dressed up - and there's nothing quite like a wedding for the chance to get all fancy. This weekend we took a trip north for a friend's wedding, and turned it into a road trip getaway. Click through to see the full story.
First things first - my outfit for the wedding. I know - I'll get to the part about where we stayed soon, but I gotta dish on this dress. I was hunting for a similar midi for a while, but happened to see this one on Topshop's site last week and NEEDED it. The perfect dress for a wedding up north where the sun isn't as fierce. It was initially sold out online (don't worry, it's back in stock) but I happened to track my size down in a store, and swung by to grab it. SCORE.
I paired the dress with these incredible Charlotte Stone velvet heels that I picked up for Fashion Week. I was intending to save them until touching down in NY, but I couldn't resist the urge to tote them along for the wedding. I'm glad I did, because not only were they exactly the style this dress needed, they were plenty comfortable for all of the dancing we did. Best weekend ever.
Necessary snack stop at In N Out
Not only was the wedding so much fun, we also got the chance to stay at one of our favorite spots in CA - The Alamo Motel in Los Alamos. It's a super small town, but somehow has the cutest motel of all time. Fun fact - Eric and I almost were married at The Alamo, but it didn't quite work out. I was worried it would be a little bittersweet coming back, but honestly, it was amazing getting to stay in this beautiful spot again, but this time as newlyweds.
