One of my favorite things to do on this blog is to document, not just my outfits, but also memorable moments in my life. This past weekend, I was reminded of how amazing my family truly is. My cousin Jessica became a bat mitzvah, or a woman in the Jewish heritage.
First, I would like to say I am incredibly proud of her and I am always amazed by everyone in my family.
Next, I want to share what I wore for this huge affair. This wasn’t just a small event. Nope! There was a service, which was the first outfit, a party later that night, which is my second outfit, and a brunch the next morning, which sadly I was having to much fun to document.
This first outfit is what I wore to the service, on Saturday morning. If you haven’t been reading this blog for a long time, you wouldn’t know that I have worn this dress before. No, I am not an outfit repeater! Check out this post to see how I wore this dress a few years ago.
The dress is actually from Target a few years back. I love the bright orange mixed with the white crocheted detailing. I paired the dress with these white Kenneth Cole heels, that were so comfortable for a services.
I also wore my new everyday handbag that I bought at & Other Stories. The woven leather is great for everyday and dresses down this look just a touch.
I am thinking of posting a new What’s in My Bag, so let me know if you’d be interested in seeing what I keep in this braided shoulder bag.
As you can see, I couldn’t contain how excited I was to see my entire family all together.
I love this next look I wore for the party.
I found this Rachel by Rachel Roy dress on sale at Macy’s. This strapless black dress had small cut outs on the sides, which originally I didn’t think would flatter my body type, but after trying it on for the shits & giggles, I realized how great it looked on. It gave me that hourglass curve and cut out at my smallest point making me look slimmer.
My shoes were another favorite. Just days before the event, I found these YSL pumps at the consignment shop for only $99! There is a small scuff on them but it is almost unnoticeable. These shoes were such a bargain, I couldn’t let them go!
My entire family was dressed to impress.
Including my mom and dad.
Of course I had to throw in a picture of the bat mitzvah girl enjoying her special night. She couldn’t have looked more like a princess in her ball gown and tiara.
I had such an amazing time dancing and laughing with my aunts, uncles, cousins, and everyone else. It couldn’t have been a better reunion.
