Weekend Frocks

posted on: March 8, 2011

frocks with the girlies

As many of you know, my best friend Jessica is getting married this November in Hawaii. Not only am I excited to be the Maid of Honour, but I get to spend 10 days with my best friends in Maui! Wedding planning and events will become more frequent, and I can’t help but get caught up in all the wedding excitement (earmuffs Adam).

On Saturday we ventured to Frocks to take a look at bridesmaid dresses. It’s so funny how the three of us had picked out our favourite styles online, but ended up liking the exact opposite of what we’d seen on the website. We found a dress that is flattering, comfortable, lightweight, and super cute! And we’re clearly girls who know what we like, as our visit lasted all of 15 minutes (they book you a 2 hour appointment). After freshening up at Jessica’s new apartment, we headed off to celebrate with some spiked frappes and appetizers. Shopping, weddings, and drinks? Pretty much the perfect Saturday afternoon!
