Black Tie Optional

I’m so excited for the next few posts! We have some sort of black tie or formal event to attend the next three weekends. I am wearing an old dress, a new dress and a rented dress these next few weeks! This invitation was black tie optional, I decided to wear a cocktail dress that I already owned.

The dress is very special bc I wore this to my rehearsal dinner during my wedding weekend. I have never worn it again until now! I wore this at 27, and at 35 it did feel a little short for my comfort zone now, but I could still zip it up after three kids so that’s a plus! The dress is from Nordstrom and the brand is Adrianna Papell.



In a sea of black dresses it’s fun to stand out in a different color. This dress is easy to wear (besides the length) and very comfortable! I wore it with the same shoes I wore to my rehearsal dinner all those years ago..from Marshall’s of course!

Stay tuned for the next two gowns! Hope your November is off to a great start!
