I lived in New York City for a semester during college, and though I always say that I wouldn’t want to live in a big city for the rest of my life, I think I could do Chicago. Ok, so that’s a lie….I hate snow and I hate cold. The city though, I could do the city. At least that’s what I think when I stay in places like the loft we were at last Friday. The first few of these photos are from there, and I think it was the coolest place ever. How awesome would it be to have a rooftop patio to hang out with all of your friends? <sigh> Maybe some day we will be rich and we can afford something like this…in downtown Austin:) Sorry not sorry for the overload of pictures today! Enjoy! The rooftop patio at the loft. Pretty houses in Chicago. Windows at the loft.
Lights on the rooftop patio. At the wedding ceremony with my friend Adam’s fiance, Heather. I saw these guys in their preppy, classy outfits and knew Bryan and I needed to take a photo with them. I need to get Wes a seersucker suit:) Classy bros. Justin, the groom, looking like he has secret service agents. Champagne toast after the ceremony. The Albion kiddos at the wedding. We’re a classy bunch. Wes and I. My boys, Matt and Bryan. They are like my brothers and I wish we all lived closer! Photo booths are my favorite part of weddings. The centerpieces at the table we really awesome! Beer and wine bottles with fresh flowers in them. The bride and groom cutting their cheese wedding cake.The beautiful tent all lit up at night.
I have been looking for a dress like this one since I bought it last year. I love the cut and it’s just adorable in general. Every time I go in to Forever 21 I hope and dream that I will find the dress in a different color or a new pattern. Well, the week before Chicago, I was in with my cousin and we found it! I honestly probably wouldn’t have cared what pattern or color it was, but I ended up loving the green and blue anyways:) You can’t see them in the photos because my feet got tired after an hour or so, but I wore my nude Target wedges and then matched that cute nude clutch to them. Pearls were a great finishing touch and made me feel like the classiest broad at the party. Well, I thought I was until they started playing boy band songs from my middle school days, and Matt and I jammed along as though we were still in those middle school days. Haha! Oooh I want to go back!
