I feel so spoiled for getting to see June twice in one month! Since our friend's wedding was Saturday we knew we would have a busy weekend, but it rained all day Sunday so we got to have an unexpected lazy day together. We are always on the go so I was ecstatic that I got to lay on my couch with my best friend...for 7 consecutive hours.
Before the wedding we played video games and went on a coffee run with June's awesome little brother, John Bryan, and Michael. I felt super vampy in this top and skirt combo from Steady Clothing since both pieces were the perfect amount of tight. I even broke out a darker shade of red lipstick than I normally wear to emphasize the 'sexier' look...and I use the word sexy lightly because I'm the biggest goofball in the world. I love pairing red, black and gold together, but it always starts to remind me of Christmas when it gets closer to December. Maybe this skirt and top combination will make an appearance at my company's Holiday party this year.

Michael wore the classic Fly High Button Up from Steady Clothing for our pre-wedding hangout. Sparrows always remind us of the Sometimes album by City and Colour (because the album art features a sparrow) so we instantly both loved this shirt. We both had such a fun time having group sing-a-longs to songs from 2006.
One of my bridesmaids and oldest friends eloped in New York this month and this weekend was her wedding celebration party (it's been a VERY busy year for our friend group in the wedding department). SO, I ended up driving to Georgia for a second time this month. The 12 hours in the car really doesn't phase me anymore, because I'm so used to it. But with all that time spent in the car, it was nice to get dressed up and run around with Amelia before the party... and it was fun abducting my baby brother to come hang out with us and be on the blog.
I've been considering buying one of these wrap/tulip style pencil skirts for a while and I loved it. It's really versatile and I can't wait to pair it with a dressier top for the office. Like Amelia, I love red + black together, but this shade of red/maroon is something I actually didn't have in my closet and it's adorable, I might need lipstick in this shade... any recommendations? Also, I have on an ivory longline bra and you can sort of see the lines + color through the shirt and I didn't notice until we started looking at the photos. Oops. haha

This was my baby brother's first time being on the blog and he was a surprisingly willing participant (I actually have two brothers and the other one will probably pop up on here sooner rather than later). Collin was promoted at work, so John Bryan offered to step in. He usually lives in DC hoodies + t-shirts and I don't think I've ever seen him in anything button down, with the exception of my wedding and a few others, but I think he rocked the Rose of Death Western with the best of them and he liked the shirt a lot. Also, can you tell where all the height in my family ended up? Like, holy shit. Not fair.
What's your favorite color combo to wear?
