The Perfect Wedding.... And A Navy Blue Dress

Aida and Alexy
Our friends. 

We so did not intend to match! 

Love this dress!

Walking 2 miles on cobble stone streets in 6" is only for the experts. Seriously. Don't try this at home.

Last month, my beau and I booked a very last minute flight to Spain to attend a childhood friend's wedding en la costa del sol. My dad's best friend's daughter, actually. I hadn't planned on going until my awesome boyfriend made an argument something along these lines: "When are you going to be able to say you went to a wedding in Spain, in Granada, at a Palace?" We booked our tickets two days later and 10 days after that were doing this. 

And it was the most beautiful wedding I've been to. The setting was rustic, but not pretentious, set below La Alhambra. And the bride was a lovely Cuban-Spanish chica whose dress blew my mind as she pranced in Flamenco style for her new husband, a lovely French man. 

And then there was my dress. A navy blue 'convertible' dress by Jenny Yu my friend helped me find on Nordstrom's website and I had to have. With 3 days before flying out, and knowing I was going to have it altered, the kind peeps at Nordies overnighted the dress and scheduled an after-hours fitting... and I picked up the dress on the way to the airport. Totally living under pressure here. 

And it was worth it. It's the perfect dress for any occasion and can be worn in 20 or so different styles. I  literally got dressed in 30 minutes, opting for the over-the-shoulder bow. The hairdo by a local girl, the bling-y shoes, the clutch, the bangles, the earrings.... it was all perfect. 

But my best accessory: My man. He was as handsome as ever and just walking side-by-side and dancing at 2 am with him made me fall in love 30 times deeper. 

And the night ended with the most perfect kiss. 

I'm one lucky girl. A beautiful wedding and a stellar, haberdasher of a date. 

(but there's more. something really special. that's for the next post.)
