So we went shopping this weekend, and while Sloane snoozed in the stroller I picked up this flower girl dress. And immediately the gold/champagne/ivory laden thoughts entered my mind. But what other neutral can a girl use in fall-- surely not pink or white- those are too spring/summery, black & grey are too depressing....So I am hoping that the cranberry and peacock really take over the gold/ivory neutrals (I must strike champagne though, it simply has too much baggage) and add that panache to show that fall isn't just rust/pumpkin/chocolate.
So I agonized for a moment and then rang it up and I am so happy that I did, this picture truly doesn't captrue the adorable crochet on the bodice. Also I told myself I won't let the ghosts of colors past ruin the present.
I admit...it's a little elegant for a tent. So I thought I needed something for Sloane and me, to make us look a little more "at home wedding". I settled on my favorite accessory of my day to day life. The bridal party will be in hues and prints of cranberry and peacock but Sloane and I need a different color to add to our ivory/gold. I finally settled on this look that I saw on stylemepretty.com . Perfection.

In other news, I found my dress. I can't post it here though--- that would be too risky. I am hoping these sneak peeks will suffice.
