I Feel Pretty | at a Bridal Shower


[With my niece Lauren, the bride to be]

We’ve got a wedding coming up in our family and I couldn’t be more excited!  My sweet, intelligent, beautiful niece Lauren is tying the knot.  The wedding with be in New Orleans this summer but this past weekend, her bridesmaids hosted a bridal shower for her in Dallas.  It was an English tea themed fete complete with fascinators, big hats and lots of girly treats and decorations.  Absolutely perfect for a spring bridal shower to celebrate one of my favorite people.


[Me, Lauren and my sister Andrea, the mother of the bride to be]





I wore a light gray fascinator and sparkly heels with a bow-tie one shoulder sateen dress from eShakti.com.  I love eShakti dresses because I’m able to customize the length and this one has pockets.  Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?  This dress was originally below the knee but I had it brought up to knee length.
