This Fall my best friend got married to the love of her life in the most elegant wedding I’ve ever been to. The event took place in the Berkshires, MA – a location that I’ve only heard about, mostly in the context of Real Housewife getaways.
I was actually in this wedding so I didn’t have to worry about what I was going to wear to the ceremony and reception. However, If you’ve ever been a guest at a destination wedding – you know there’s more than just that one outfit to worry about. Plus with the beautiful guest list and luxurious location, I felt the pressure on the wardrobe front. There’s welcome receptions, rehearsal dinners, and can’t forget the brunches!
Well, while I was in Barcelona in August I came across the prettiest dress that was appropriate for such an event. This Maje number had sheer sleeves, a pleated skirt and tiny daisy details that add a touch of whimsy. Of course, I had to get this dress that went with the Maje western heels that I fell in love with.
I thought this was the perfect look for a Fall wedding brunch. The midi length is lady-like, and the sleeves are perfect for Fall days with a tiny chill in the air. Of course, I loved wearing this during my best friend’s special weekend, but I can’t wait to edge it up by throwing on a leather jacket and even some ankle booties. What can I say, I’ve never met a little black dress that I didn’t love! Of course, I added some luxurious details like my Saint Laurent structured tote to match the elegance of the location. We stayed at the wedding site called The Wheatleigh, which is one of my favorite hotels I’ve ever visited. From the views, the luxurious details, and the attentiveness of the staff, everything was perfection. Of course, I expect nothing less from my girlfriend for her special day. In addition to loving this dress so much, I’m so happy that I now have beautiful memories to go along with the outfit. Now every time I put on this dress, I’ll remember that perfect weekend!
