Surprise, Surprise




Dress: Lush via Nordstrom Rack (pretty striped option) Lace Bandeau: Nordstrom Rack Necklace: Leila Rowe (love this) Wristlet: Target (on sale for $16 in tan or blue!) Heels: Zara Watch: Michael Kors Leather Wrap Bracelet: via Nordstrom Rack

July was a busy month for me - if you didn't notice on Instagram, I made a second trip up to Toronto to surprise my BFF! She got engaged a few weeks ago and her boyfriend fiance had asked if I could come up to celebrate with them. Without hesitation I said yes and booked my ticket. His plans of proposing and all the little secrets we had were the hardest I've ever had to keep - but I am so happy he pulled it off and she got the surprise of a lifetime!

After me popping-out-from-behind-a-truck, getting a "WTH are you doing here?" reaction, and then hugging and crying with my BFF of 19 years, we drove out to Niagara Falls. We enjoyed the view, rode Maid of the Mist (our feet getting soaked... luckily those ponchos keep the rest of you pretty dry!) and Pearl flashed her ring at every opportunity.

Later that evening we met them out in the Suburbs of Toronto to continue celebrating. I threw on this Lush dress that I picked up from Nordstrom Rack not too long before (for $27!!). I love the turquoise color (turquoise? mint? teal? A mixture of all of the above?) and the thigh high slit so you can show off your sexy shoes, which I kept neutral. I love that this dress has the flowy feel because of the short lining underneath but that the material is not sheer to show your legs - I just can't get onboard with that style! I added more pops of color with this Leila Rowe necklace (last seen here), my super soft you-wouldn't-believe-it's-from-Target wristlet, and a peek-a-boo purple lacy bandeau.

Congratulations to Pearl & Robert, I wish you guys a life of happiness and I can't wait for the wedding!!
