The day after our wedding on Nantucket, Will’s family friends hosted the most incredible Texas barbecue in the backyard of the house they’d rented right next door to my parents’ house. Because we got married on Labor Day weekend, we got to spend all day Sunday and Monday with our family and friends, so it wasn’t so much a farewell brunch as a reason to continue the weekend festivities!
I’d picked out this fabulous cream-colored long shirtdress to wear to the barbecue but sadly the weather didn’t cooperate. It was chilly and rained on and off all day so I decided to wear a Tory Sport sweater with white jeans instead. Way less fun! But I’m glad Ali snapped these pictures of the dress before our wedding weekend because it really is the most beautiful and flattering style. It’s so completely timeless and the fit makes it look like Ralph Lauren Collection when in fact it was under $200. Seriously, if you are a bride-to-be, have an upcoming vacation, or just want to make a seriously chic purchase, you need this dress.
P.S. Looking at these photos, I have to say I’m very happy I decided to get a light spray tan before our wedding. I swear I am a ghost without one!
