Orange is The New Frock

Earlier this summer, I attended a very special wedding in Vermont at the Woodstock Inn. It was my first time in that area, and I must say I can’t wait until the next time I can go back and explore it even more!

I had my eyes on this Karen Millen dress for months but was hesitant about the $350 price tag. It fit like a glove, but it did not have any special bells and whistles that could make me justify the purchase. Screen Shot 2013-08-29 at 11.20.19 PM

I think the discount godmothers were looking out for me, because right before the wedding the price dropped to $235 and then an additional sale brought it under $145.  I also have another wedding in October that this dress would be appropriate for as well so I went for it. It seemed like a sign!

To save even more money, I paired this dress with items I had in my closet: bridesmaid jewelry and shoes from a few of the weddings I have been in over the years, Grandma Grace’s “going out dancing” clutch, and contrasting turquoise nail polish done myself!

I loved exploring the neighboring town Quechee and having lunch overlooking the falls at the Restaurant at Simon Pearce. (The glass blowing was mind blowing to say the least too!) The food at the Woodstock Inn was so delicious for dinner.  Our favorite breakfast was at The Mountain Creamery on Central Street in Woodstock. I have a weakness for breakfast diners, and this one did not disappoint. The homemade strawberry jam that was so good we took a few jars home for ourselves.
