I bought this dress - for a STEAL on eBay - at the end of October and it was killing me knowing I would have to wait until next Summer to wear it. Then I remembered I had my trip to Disney a couple weeks ago and knew it would be perfect for my day at Animal Kingdom! I'm a major Disney geek so naturally I have Disney-related tees that I wear to all the parks but for Animal Kingdom I usually go for some sort of animal print and in this case a patterned Edun dress.

I hope all my American followers have a great Thanksgiving (and possibly long weekend if your employer is nice!)

Dress: Edun red printed silk dress (eBay), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Athanasia' in Croc (Moda Operandi), Mickey Mouse Bag: Coach x Disney 'Patricia Saddle in Glove Calf Leather with Mickey Ears' (Coach Outlet), Magic Band: It's a Small World

As I mentioned on Tuesday, I had two weddings to attend last month. This is what I wore to the second for a friend I've had since elementary school. She was friends with my sister and I was friends with her sister so we kind of became a foursome. Her wedding was the weekend after my cousins and we had warmer weather and no wind, which was lovely!

It was held at the Keller Tavern Museum Garden House, a beautiful location especially in Fall! For this wedding I went with a more Fall color palette by wearing my brown Edun dress and Prada sandals. This dress, like my Burberry one, has been in my closet since early 2012. I first wore it to the Grand Opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. I'm also pretty sure I found the exact necklace I bought in Santorini online - shop it here!

I got a compliment on the dress from a very stylish wedding guest who was in a voluminous black top and pants with what I'm assuming were Chanel pumps because they looked a bit like this but with camellias or logos on the mesh (she also had a Chanel bag.) I enjoy how even if a piece is technically "past season" it doesn't matter as long as it makes a statement. There's no need to buy a new dress for every special occasion as long as you have a few standout pieces to rotate through. I have another wedding in January and am still deciding which of the dresses I already own I will wear. (But who knows, I may break my own rule and buy something new.)

And now I'm taking a week off of posting as I'll be at Disney World from Monday to Friday! I'll be back the next week with more outfits and a couple Disney posts! Follow my trip on Instagram!

Dress: Edun brown printed layered dress (The Outnet, shop more cocktail dresses), Sandals: Prada suede caged high heel (The RealReal), Olive Branch Pearl Necklace: bought in Santorini (shop delicate necklaces)

And a bonus shot of Christian and I at the wedding:

The second night of the conference ended with the "Ball at the Wall," aka a Game of Thrones dance, ha ha.  I brought my Edun printed dress because I thought it had a Wildling vibe. Unfortunately it was already dark by the time we got ready for the party so the pictures are a little blurry. I should have taken them with my phone instead of my tiny camera.

Dress: Edun (The Outnet - shirt and skirt version), Studded Suede Sandals: Lanvin (Net-a-Porter)

This past Monday I attended one day of New York Fashion week. Sadly I was in Florida for a good chunk of it and missed some events I was invited to. But Monday I went to 2 events and got a nice taste. I could never do the full week - takes a lot of energy!

For those of you that don't know me - I'm a walker when I go to the city. I like the exercise and I really really dislike taking the Subway alone because I'm afraid I'll get lost. MY first show of the day was almost 3 miles away from the other. So my choices were: run 2.7 miles, find a cab (also terrifying for someone with social anxiety) or brave the Subway; otherwise I would have missed my second event.

Luckily for me, Blacklane came to my rescue when they asked if I would like to try out their car service. I was easily able to make my reservation through their website and smartphone app. All you have to do is share your pickup location, destination and time of pickup! Easy peasy! And you can cancel up to an hour ahead of your scheduled pickup if something changes. And finding my drivers was very simple; I got a text message a couple hours before letting me know my drivers name and a second text when they arrived at the pickup location along with their phone number in case I needed to call. Stress free and you get to feel fancy for a few minutes. The fares are a bit pricey (around $50 for each) but that included tip as well and you get the peace of mind knowing your ride will be on time.

*Blacklane provided me with 2 free trips in exchange for a mention in this post*

Leanne Marshall: I was a huge fan of Leanne when she was on Project Runway back in 2008 (and won!) Her collection was full of flowy dresses in amethyst, tanzanite and nudes. My favorites were obviously the purples and then one really beautiful tan dress with embellishment on the bust. I also loved the final look, a tanzanite gown with bead and organza embellishment.  While simple, the dresses had beautiful braided detailing as well as a bit of sparkle thanks to sequins! Some of the dresses are available online now - shop here!

Sherri Hill: Admittedly I hadn't heard of Sherri before getting my invite to the show but I always enjoy discovering new designers so I was excited to attend. The show is definitely geared toward the younger crowd with prom-type dresses so it wasn't totally my style but it was a really fun show. There were some adorable child models as well and the crowd cheered every time one walked out. Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos from the show due to people standing up and blocking the view.

I also got to meet Aly Raisman and Nick Fradiani which was pretty darn exciting! For those of you that don't know, I was a gymnast for 13 years so being able to meet an Olympic gymnast I admire was amazing! And Nick was the winner of American Idol season 14 and is from Connecticut! I rarely voted on American Idol but I voted for him, super talented!

I wore this a couple weekends ago to do some shopping with my mom. I wasn't planning on buying anything but came across a really pretty dress (that I almost didn't try on) and it was on clearance for $60. I had a $50 gift card, so how could I resist?! It was a nice warm day and this dress is long-sleeved, so I didn't really need the sweater on top, but I'm still layering while I can!

Sometimes when I wear vests they make me feel larger than I really am. In this instance I decided to belt the best to accentuate my shape, or lack thereof. The color of the vest goes so well with the print of this Edun tiered dress, which is one of my favorites. It's light and airy but I can warm it up with tights or, as in this case, a vest.

I was really enjoying the weather at the beginning of this month. It was warm enough to bare my legs, but not so warm that I couldn't cover up my arms. It was the perfect time to wear this thin long sleeve dress sans tight and jacket. Such a simple outfit, but one that I really like.

Dress: Edun c/o ThredUp, Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea' (also here, here & here)

I wore this on my last day in Florida. I was worried I wasn't going to be able to wear the dress, so I'm glad we ended up with an extra day.  There were only 2 pieces I didn't wear on my trip - a camisole and a really loose, cape-like sweater. So I did a pretty good packing job!

I was also glad we had an extra day because I didn't have time to get one of the HUGE Simpsons donuts on our other days. They are so delicious, I don't care how many calories I ate.  The best part? It's only $5!!! The regular sized donuts are $2.29, so it's pointless to get one of those.
