My Weekend - Wedding and Family Time

On Mondays, I usually write about my work week style inspiration, but today I'm veering off my schedule.  My weekend was too jam-packed to faux shop.  Today, I'm talking about my weekend and fall wedding style.

On Saturday, we had a friend's wedding to go to.  It's rare these days that we get to dress up, AND, we have never gone to a cold season wedding, so we were excited to compile a fun fall formal style.  I went with a red and black quarter sleeve dress (Sonoma, Kohls), and Kyle wore a gray suit with a red/plaid shirt to complement my dress.

For my nails, my co-worker did the coolest matte gray manicure for me (Thanks, Vicky!).  I don't like girly nails.  I don't know why, but my nails are usually way trendier/cooler than the rest of me.

wedding nails, trendy nails, cool nailsWe had a blast at the wedding!  The bride was beautiful, speeches heartfelt, and the decor was gorgeous.  To top it all off, they had a candy bar and photobooth!!
