garden tea party

this afternoon i got all dolled up for my darling friend Charity's bridal shower.
the girls had a 'Garden Tea Party' theme.
that meant lots of pretty dresses, hats, and gloves...
and lots & lots of yummy tea, coffee, and chocolate treats.
sound like a dreamworld?
well, it was.

here's what i wore for the oh-so-special occasion!




























headband: H&M, flower: Claire's, cardi: thrifted, dress: bluebird (from a shop in Chicago), tights: Urban, shoes: Target, purse: Aldo

i sure do love dressin' up.
it's one of my faves!

ps. some friends of mine had a conversation about slang and shortening words.
my one friend and i shorten words all the time (i.e. fave, delish, convo, 'tude..)
my other friend finds it annoying.
anyone else love making up fun, little, new words like that?!

anywhoo (hehe. another fun word)... have a fabulous evening.
tim & i have dinner, dessert, and possible coffee plans on the menu tonight

love you(s).

xoxo

  6. My friend Courtney pretty much has her own language of shortened words/phrases:
    At? = Where are you?
    Doin'? = What are you doing?
    Mad. = Can either mean "Oh, crap." or "I am so happy/excited that I can't stand it."
    Real hung. = I'm really hungry. (Haha.)
    Bluebs = blueberries

  7. I love everything about your outfit! So cute!
    As for shortening words, it annoys me when people say 'choc' instead of chocolate and 'prezzi' instead of present. But at the same time i love saying 'mish' instead of mission and 'obvs' intead of obviously. Most of the time i just get lazy and can't be bother to say the second half of a word and just expect everyone to know what i mean. Haha!

  19. what is the function of that owl? i'm pretty sure i have the exact same one.. i think it's supposed to be a little flower pot or something, but i put all my pens in it :)

    anyways. you are gorgeous/well dressed.. as usual.

    i am guilty of saying "totes" all the time, even though it's a bit ridiculous.. haha.
