Vines & Vows

Outfit Details:
Dress: Knitted Dove, Wizard of Oz Collection (gift from mom - thanks!)
Scarf & Basket: Vintage, Antique Mall
Socks: UO
Shoes: Seychelles

Not so very long ago a good friend of ours married his lady love and the Mr., the babe, and I ventured a couple hours away to an enchanting little vineyard in the countryside where the festivities took place.  Weddings are magical indeed and this one was no exception.  Who can resist a night filled with lots of love, laughter, salted caramel espresso cupcakes and grapevines as far as the eye could see?  Not me!

Anyhow, I received this Wizard of Oz themed dress from my mom as a congrats-you-had-another-baby gift and this was the perfect night to take it out.  I do adore putting on a fancier frock and dancing the night away.  It's off note but in case you were wondering - this little vintage picnic basket has been the best thing for carrying some diapers, wipes, a bottle, and pacifier when I don't feel like lugging around ye ol diaper bag whilst attending a special event. It's amazing how good one becomes at packing lots of baby paraphernalia into a seemingly small space second kid around.

Cheers to great weddings and great loves.  It was a splendiful evening - and as for the little guy, well he slept through the whole thing!  

Catch up with you soon darlings,
