I could have sworn that I set this post to auto publish yesterday, but it would appear that I got caught up in the excitement of the Snowball and completely forgot to actually do that. It was the best ever, by the way… and full coverage (or perhaps a little too much coverage) is coming soon! :)
But on to yesterday’s post!
One / Two (Actually wearing this bracelet from Hazel & Marie) / Three (Also love these!) / Four (I’m bringing an old Kate Spade clutch, but this is super close!) / Five (I’m wearing an older version, but this is very similar!)
Guys, I’m so excited. The 27th Annual Snowball is tonight, and I can’t wait to get dressed up; dance the night away with Mitch, Jess and Neal; hit up all the food stations; and support an amazing cause. (I’ve mentioned this before, but the event, hosted by the Junior Council and the Robert & Ann H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, benefits the hospital’s pediatric and adolescent HIV and AIDS programs.) It’s taking place at Union Station in Chicago, and it’s going to be amazing.
It’s not every day that a girl gets to wear a gown and go to a ball. This will actually be my first time wearing a floor-length dress (that isn’t a wedding dress), and I’d be lying if I said I’m not beyond ecstatic about feeling like a princess for a night!
Which brings me to what I’m wearing. :) First of all, a huge thank you goes out to Tuckernuck (my favorite preppy retailer) and Camilyn Beth for outfitting me for tonight’s festivities! I adore Camilyn Beth, and:
From the ruffles and bows to the scallops and poofy sleeves, I can’t get enough. (See more styles here.) I can’t believe I get to wear one tonight! I’ve seriously wanted a Camilyn Beth dress for the longest time, and when I put mine on, I totally get that #youneverforgetyourfirst feeling. I mean, the ruffles down the back?! Sigh.
I’m off to the ball, but in the meantime, check out my faves from Camilyn Beth below!
