White Sequin Rehearsal Dinner Dress

Adrianna Papell dress (tank version here) // Kate Spade bag // Stuart Weitzman shoes

I wore this dress to my wedding rehearsal dinner at The Slanted Door, one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. I was drawn to this dress the moment I saw it online. I was looking for a white dress that wasn't too bridal and was a bit different than your typical white lace rehearsal dinner dress. From the art deco pattern to the intricate beading to the slightly fitted shift shape, this dress was exactly what I wanted. Even though it is fully sequined, the color and patten steer it away from a New Years Eve look, especially when paired with minimalist nude shoes and accessories.

Beach Beauty Essentials

Even though summer is winding down for most people, Indian summer is just starting for us in San Francisco so I thought I'd share my favorite beach beauty products, which I used on my honeymoon in Hawaii. I like to keep beach beauty products light and simple. For makeup, just some mascara and lip gloss. Your skin needs a vacation too- let it breathe! I just discovered this Dior lip color and absolutely love it. I generally don't like gloss but this one feels moisturizing and not too sticky. The color is a beautiful vibrant coral pink, perfect for the beach and is also long lasting. Kerastase products are great- this elixir (which I use liberally) keeps my hair incredibly moisturized and silky even though I color it a lot. The Josie Maran argan oil is a handy moisturizer to keep around- I use it on my hair, nails and skin.

I wanted to share a few photos from our honeymoon. The first two beach and pool shots are from the St. Regis Princeville where we are staying and the aerial view of the cliffs and beach is from our helicopter tour with Jack Harter Helicopters.
