We're going to a wedding in a few weeks in Pittsburgh and I've been a little stumped on what to wear. It's in the middle of April but I've been told the weather will feel more like winter and there might very well be snow on the ground. It's not black tie but a summer sundress would be inappropriate. I think I found a top contender in a dress I had previously dubbed more work appropriate. Love a good outfit that can pull double duty like that though.
Speaking of Pittsburgh, anyone have any suggestions for things to do with kids? It's a family wedding so they'll be coming with us for the weekend. We have Friday afternoon and all day Saturday to keep them entertained. I've been researching the area and the Zoo, Children's Museum, and the Incline all seem like a lot of fun. Do you have anything else you'd recommend?
They'll happily be staying behind Saturday night with a babysitter. She's a family friend of my husband's aunt and uncle but we've never used a stranger before so that's a whole other can of worms for me emotionally. The only people to ever watch the kids are my parents, my in-laws, and my cousin in nursing school. I never meant for that to be the case, I just really never needed to hire anyone we hadn't met before. And then with Tagg's allergies escalating it never felt safe to introduce someone new to that scenario.
It's a cotton and silk fit & flare Marc Jacobs dress with a fun graphic black and white pattern like a modern take on gingham. Once again, it has pockets which is just so awesome that I can hardly wear clothes without them anymore. I'm 5'9 so the length should work on just about anyone.
The dress is straighter than it appears and has a more generous fit in the middle than you might expect. I'm sometimes on the fence with dress sizes and originally ordered the larger size. Thankfully Nordstrom does free shipping even on returns because I had to send it back and size down. That's always a fun surprise especially when it doesn't cost you anything to fix.
I've selected a few more of my favorites from the Marc by Marc Jacobs line at Nordstrom for you below. Lots of good workhorses mixed in.
