Sail- Awolnation
So, would you like to know how I ended up with yet another dress?? You do!? Awesome.

This past weekend was a friend's wedding in Calgary, and since I'm an idiot I decided to drive the 12hr there and then 12hrs back in 3 days. I grabbed some audiobooks, snacks, coffee and my game face, everything but a dress. Now, I didn't forget a dress but remember when I moved from MB to BC? Yeah... it seems that all of my dresses got tucked away into a neat little box that is in storage thousands of miles away from me (see: idiot). I thought I'd be fine, Calgary has tons of stores! I figured I'd drive all day Friday, get up early on Saturday and find a pretty little number in the morning with plenty of time to relax before the ceremony. INSTEAD I drove 9 hrs only to find out that the highway was closed and I was stranded in the middle of nowhere for the night. 

When I finally rolled into Calgary the next day I was seriously running late. I dashed into the first store I found and managed to pick up this little number for 30% off! That's right. I just might have to upgrade myself from idiot! 
Navy Lace Dress- Jacob, Sash- Flea Market, Nude Shoes and Turquoise Earrings- Aldo, Leather Wrap Bracelet- H&M
Anyway the wedding was so gorgeous and fun (they had macarons and a photobooth!) and was definitely worth the jinxed roadtrip (I won't even get started on the trip back... 6hrs waiting on the side of the road for the highway to reopen is as fun as it sounds). 


  1. The dress is pretty, the wedding sounded fun... the roadtrip sounded like a friggen nightmare.

  2. Aw, you look amazing! I would've never known you grabbed this dress in a dash. :) I love road trips!
