OOTD: Summer Wedding Weekend

In lieu of an OOTD post this week (still adjusting to working full time,) I want to share what I wore to my brother's wedding last weekend. I was so happy to be able to go home to New Jersey to celebrate the union of my little brother Wes and his wife Megan. It was such a beautiful weekend filled with great food, fun, and the chance to see some family and friends from awhile back!

I wore this first look to the wedding Thursday night, an eShakti dress that I won through the giveaway over on Alicia's blog.  This was a God send, as I wasn't planing on buying a new dress (or 2) as I have so many already hanging in the closet which haven't been worn more than once. Then I won a giveaway allowing me to pick anything I wanted off their site, and I knew it would be a dress.

The beauty in these pictures with me is my sister Re, who blogs over at Social Work Confessions
Outfit Details:
Dress: 'Admiralty' by eShakti
Shoes" BCBGeneration
Neckalce: Belk

The next night I wore one of my favorite dresses, the dress I bought for my graduation last year.  I figured no one really saw it as I wore it under my cap and gown, so why not showcase it once again?
