Shower of Love

This past weekend was my best friend's bridal shower and everything went perfectly.

The beautiful bride and her bridesmaids

And this is what I wore...

{Top: H&M (old), Skirt: H&M, Booties: BCBG, Tights: Target, Necklace: Bauble Bar, Bracelets: David Yurman, Alex and Ani}

My friend put me in charge of this shower, so I decided to take on some DIY projects to give the shower a bit of a personal touch. I made big and mini pom poms for decorations and I also made little cards for the food and the dessert. All of the utensils were rolled into napkins and tied with polka dot ribbons (of course I incorporated my favorite pattern into this shower). After all the planning, one crazy bakery, and the threat of a snowstorm, the shower ended up being pretty fabulous. It warmed my heart to see my best friend so happy and that made it all worth it.

We hope you had an amazing time, love you Linds!
