Snow–or cold weather, for that matter–wasn’t even something I considered when I packed for our trip to Illinois to see Mitch’s family! And I certainly hadn’t thought that it would be snowing the day of our midwest bridal shower, thrown for us by Mitch’s amazingly thoughtful aunts. :) It’s nearing April, after all! But what can you do? I’ve found that most outfits–even lacy white dresses and coral sweaters meant for spring and summer–can work when paired with black tights and black bags! Thank goodness I’d packed these items!

My future sister-in-law, who was driving, handled the situation so well. She didn’t even panic! (This city girl would have freaked out.) She stayed calm and safely got our car back on track. Phew! Go Sarah.

The shower was absolutely beautiful. Mitch and I were incredibly touched by the thought, time and generosity that went into it. We are so lucky to have such a loving family! I’ll post pictures as soon as I get my hands on some. ;)

  • It’s a bummer it snowed on the day of your shower, but you still look stunning! I love that dress so much.

    • Thank you so much, Alyssa!! Haha… The snow made it all the more magical. ;) xoxo Kelly

  • I absolutely loved how you took a spring outfit and made it snow/winter appropriate! So adorable.
    BTW, I would have totally freaked out in a car spin out too…so scary!

    • Jill,

      Thank you!! I kind of panicked when I woke up and there was a ton of snow on the ground, as this was the only thing I’d packed for the shower! ;) Thank goodness for Ann Taylor Loft, right around the corner from my fiance’s house! ;) haha

      xoxo
