Hey y’all! Hope you’re having a fantastic Wednesday! I need to work on Fresh Apparel stuff today while I have “time” so no Awkward and Awesome this week… although I have a bunch to share! πŸ™‚ 
Last Saturday afternoon my good friend Tricia Ann and I hosted a bridal shower for our bestie Kaliste. 
The theme colors were yellow and peach with hints of turquoise, so I was really excited to find a dress on ThredUP that matched the party decor. πŸ™‚
My easy-peasy-hey-I’m-at-Target gift to the bride was a tub full of cleaning supplies, all in the party colors.
 I was in charge of decorations and had a blast hanging lights and making pompoms to decorate the barn we had the shower in. I had great help, too!
Tricia Ann created this lovely cupcake display! It was the centerpiece of the food table and looked simply perfect. 
 We spread quilts on the floor for the young girls to sit on so they could be close to the gift-unwrapping action. 
Future sister-in-law of the bride, Tricia Ann, and sister of the bride. πŸ™‚ 
I love this picture so much, I had to include it. I never did catch what was said, but isn’t laughter the best? 
With the barn doors open so the breeze could blow through, Michael Buble’ playing in the background, and general merriment abounding, we had a wonderful afternoon celebrating and showering Kaliste with gifts for her new home and life.

Pearl Earrings: Gift
This dress is strapless, so I safety pinned it to my bra straps to keep from having to pull it up all the time. Since it was a Saturday afternoon occasion, I used the denim jacket to tone down the fancy of the ohsoperfect dress. Usually I don’t like mixing and matching such different styles, but this was fun. 
Have you ever hosted a bridal shower? What were the theme colors? What did you wear?

Cool, too, that you matched the shower's theme! I have never hosted a shower before–I'd love to someday. I also tend to be extremely uncreative with my bridal shower attendee outfits, so I need to work on that πŸ™‚

  5. I agree with the other comments- this may be your prettiest outfit ever (although you certainly have a number of really beautiful ones). I've never been to a bridal shower but I will be attending my own in a few months! You look gorgeous and I love reading your posts!

  6. I absolutely love your outfit!! I'm such a fan of adding a jean jacket to certain outfits, and I have never seen the short jean jacket before, I would love to find one. The picture you caught of those girls laughing is a wonderful picture, you definitely caught a great moment. I'm glad you had a great party, it looked liked a lot of fun!

  7. Beautiful outfit! Good idea about the safety pinning, you've opened my mind even more when it comes to shopping. (Which, on second thought, probably isn't a good thing… πŸ™‚
    Looks like you had a great time at the baby shower, hope the rest of this busy season in your life is just as fun!

  8. I love that dress. Do you get sales on dresses from thred up because you recommend people? Could you explain how that works? I've tried stuff from there but it's all super expensive. Just wondering because I love all the outfits you've gotten from there.

  9. Sooooo pretty!!!! That dress is in one of my absolute favorite colors to wear. You are gorgeous, Olivia! Thanks for being such an encouragement with your blog!

  10. So I adore this dress! I never have hosted a bridal shower….but my bridal shower colors were mint and purple…the colors of my wedding! πŸ™‚ I wore a light pink maxi skirt and a mint top.
