Sorry about the lighting in these photos...they were taken later this evening and with flash (which I don't usually like) as the natural light was almost all gone!  But hey, this way you get to see a different background...welcome to a different corner of my living room!  

I went bridesmaids' dress shopping with my mom and two sisters today and was so happy with what we got!  As you already know, my bridesmaids are wearing different shades of neutrals.  We stopped by Amity, which is one of my favourite boutiques in Cork and has just recently brought in a bridesmaids' collection.  By appointment only, you get the whole upstairs floor to yourself (bliss!) to try on pretty dresses.  Erika got a beautiful nude coloured halter dress and Emma got a taupe/coffee coloured v-neck dress.  Both shades compliment each other so well and I can't wait to see how they'll look next to my own dress!  Mine is an off-white colour so we'll all be wearing very similar shades.  If you are looking for bridesmaids' dresses and you live in Cork I highly recommend Amity!  The girls there were super helpful and made us all feel right at home :)  It was such a positive experience!  I couldn't be happier with what Emma and Erika picked.

I also got some things in TK Maxx, I wanted to check out their home section but ended up getting lured into the pets area and got two dog bowls (one blue, one pink ;) a pink lead for Sina and a cute little glass container with a black bone on top of the lid for their dog food.  Hahaha, I pretty much go crazy for doggy accessories so how could I resist?!  We also brought both puppies to the vet, which wasn't as traumatic as I expected.  My mom treated me to lunch in Milano's and now we are getting ready to go and eat pasta with broccoli at her house (one of my all-time favourite dishes!).  Today was pretty great so far.

I hope you all had as successful a Saturday! :)

Stay Stylish!
xoxo

    It sounds like you're having great girly times with your mom and sisters since you moved to Cork! So fun! Wish I lived closer to my mom and sister...sigh...
