This past weekend we journeyed out to Ojai, California, to celebrate the marriage of two of Will’s friends from Princeton. Neither of us had ever been and we both fell in love with it right away! It’s hard not to fall in love when you’re surrounded by friends, the scenery is that gorgeous, and the weather cooperates the entire weekend. We flew from Dallas into LAX then rented a car with our friends Mike and Natalie and drove a little under two hours to Ojai. The wedding took place at the gorgeous Ojai Valley Inn & Spa where we spent a glorious afternoon lounging in a cabana by the pool and all evening toasting Douglas and Mia under the stars… Pretty magical and definitely inspiration for our own wedding a year from now!

Given the heat and the outdoor reception, I decided to wear this easy breezy Roberta Roller Rabbit maxi dress that I scooped up from (where else?) Tuckernuck. It’s actually 100% cotton but the high neck and pretty back make it look a bit more formal. I dressed it up with turquoise tassel earrings, a navy straw clutch, and my go-to nude wedges which had all our friends asking if I’d coordinated with Will’s navy suit and light blue tie. #nowejustreallyloveblue #navyornothing 😂
