Wedding Countdown & Pretty Shoes

With only three months to go, plans are quickly being finalized for my brother and Whitney's wedding. We're attempting to get the rehearsal dinner planned. The shower is coming up in two weeks and the bachelorette party shortly after. It will be here before we know it!

My brother's bachelor party was last weekend in New Orleans and he made it back on Sunday. Honestly, I was a little bit worried knowing the rowdy group of FIFTY guys he was going with. My brother is 6'4", so it's doubtful anyone would mess with him, but I have spent many Fourth of July weekends in San Diego and even vacationed with this group in the past and they don't mess around. Needless to say, it's always a lot of fun. I think my brother was pretty worn out on Monday.

But enough about the boys... onto the pretty, girly things!

The wedding is outdoors on Coronado Island and Whitney chose grey, flowy dresses for the bridesmaids. The flowers will be hot pink/fuchsia. These were her inspiration pics from the knot:
The dresses: J. Crew "Juliet" in Graphite:
And, the part that I'm really excited about... my SHOES:
Being on somewhat of a strict budget these days, I rarely purchase new "fun" shoes. Apparently I have more important priorities.. you know, like cheese. So I was very excited about the idea of "having" to purchase new shoes. Especially super girly, unnecessary, non-work shoes. They don't look like it here for some reason, but they're satin. And the d'orsay style is my favorite for dressy shoes. Love it!

Can't wait to sport these babies in July! It's going to be hard to keep them in their box with aaaall the showers, bachelorette parties and weddings I have coming up!
