OFF THE GRID

I must be at that age.  Everyone I know is either getting married, pregnant or getting a dog! These are all happy and good times, especially the weddings. I am excited to celebrate my friend's nuptials and I plan to do so dressed to the nines!

The first wedding this season I need to be outfitted for is in northern California. So what to wear to a wedding in northern California? The vibe I am getting for the NoCal look is a flowy maxi dress, maybe something boho chic with natural colors and textures. Usually I avoid Maxi dresses in Chicago in August because of the heat, but it should be just right with the northern California breeze!

I decided to check out Rent The Runway, mainly because I am sick of purchasing dresses only to wear them once and have them sit in my closet! With the new flagship store open in Chicago, I am excited to have the opportunity to try on the dresses long before the wedding so I can find the right fit for my body!

Full disclosure, I've been a long admirer and window shopper but never a customer of Rent The Runway so I can finally use my $25 off new customer code. (If you haven't shopped at Rent The Runway don't forget to enter FIRSTRTR25X75X at checkout for $25 off!).

Here are the looks I am thinking about, perhaps you guys can help me decide!

Jill Jill Stuart Dayglo Gown $75 / Kenneth Jay Lane Drop Of Shine Earrings $20/ Kendra Scott Gold Sanskrit Cuff $10

I seriously love the pockets in this dress. Pockets coupled with the deep V, this dress looks impossibly sexy and comfortable!

Elizabeth and James Accesories Itten Earrings $35 / Franchi Spencer Nude Clutch $30 / BCBG Max Azria Yulia Maxi Dress $100

This dress isn't really my style but I totally am open to it! After all, California is the land of mid-century modern!

Love the top outfit! It’s dressy but not over the top. I had tons of weddings to go to a couple of years ago and now it’s tons of baby showers. You’re right, you definitely hit that age where everyone’s hitting those big milestones!
