Wedding in Wine Country – Mahari Collection x Shillpa Purii Designer Jewellery

Mahari Collection X Shillpa Purii Designer Jewellery X Social and Style 100

//Cape – Mahari Collection, Earrings – Shillpa Purii Designer Jewellery//

Over the holiday weekend, we attended a lovely wedding at DeLoach Winery in Sonoma. The beauty of the location complimented the elegant rustic decor. When deciding what to wear, I was excited to finally wear my Mahari Collection must-have summer wedding trend high-low cape! As you likely have seen all over Instagram, capes are super hot right now in Indian fashion. I really love how this high-low cape added oomph to my pencil dress from Asos. The high-low look creates a slimming effect while the cape adds a touch of elegance. Although the weather is amazing here in Sonoma, it does get pretty chilly at night. The cape was the perfect complement to wear for both a sizzling summer day and cool summer evening.  To complete the look, I styled the cape with statement double chandbali earrings from Shillpa Purii Designer  Jewellery. Mumbai based designers Shillpa and Sakshi create beautiful designs to fit every occasion. Sometimes I am weary of ordering items from India, but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and delivery. I selected the earrings on Saturday by chatting directly with Shillpa on WhatsApp and they arrived in just two days! I can’t wait to style their statement kundan studs next! I also have the high-low cape in mind to wear with a pair of skinny jeans and a crop top. Can’t wait to share both looks soon!

// Locations: Supreme Court, Library of Congress//

When it came time to plan our engagement photos –  my Fiancé and I knew we wanted to include the city closest to my heart. Born and raised in the D.C. area, I have always felt like D.C. was home. Since I will be moving to Sonoma County after our wedding, having our engagement photos in D.C. made the day even more memorable. Walking past the Supreme Court and Library of Congress – I was always amazed by the history and beauty of the locations. We knew they would be the perfect spots for our shoot!

#WeddingWear – A Destination Wedding with Bazzzar.com!

10004

With summer around the corner, wedding season is here! With sangeets, mehndis, cocktails, ceremonies, and receptions – finding what to wear can be a challenge. With a destination wedding, it can be even tougher deciding what to wear and what to pack. The location, time of year, and events are all important factors. You want to wear something that is weather appropriate, easy to pack, and comfortable. While there are lots of places to shop from, personally I don’t want to wait 4-6 weeks for my outfit and pay a ton for shipping. Even when your outfit arrives, you still are unsure if it will fit right or if you will need alternations, which can get pricey. When I discovered Bazzzar.com, I loved their designs, selections, and 7-day shipping guarantee! I teamed up with Bazzzar.com to help you plan for your destination wedding this year.
