My oh my how summer if flying by!  <-- I did not mean for that to rhyme...

This past weekend I headed down to Virginia Beach to celebrate my coworker tying the knot.
Earlier in the day, I began to get nervous a little bit because despite the fact that a friend and I left my area near DC around 8AM, we almost ran late for this 5:30PM wedding.
Crazy right?

If you're not familiar with the wonderful Interstate 95 consider yourself lucky.
While I have had pretty good luck the last few times I've jumped on that particular, luck was not on my side Saturday morning.
The normal 3.5 / 4 hour drive turned into a closer to 6 hour drive. 
Yes. Ouch.
Needless to say, I was a little tired (no time to nap!) and had to immediately get ready once we arrived at our hotel.

Luckily, and not surprisingly, I completely forgot about the almost debacle from earlier in the day once the ceremony started.
This past weekend I went to my last wedding of the year and it is funny how I have begun to measure my summers by the number of weddings I have attended.
This particular wedding was for a coworker that I've known and have been working with for the past few years.

It was such a beautiful wedding on the water in Virginia Beach and the weather was actually perfect which just added to the great day.
I was so thankful to witness the lovely couple commit themselves to each other.

About the look:
Not sure why I am on a I-want-to-wear-black-to-a-wedding kick but I am.
This is the third wedding I've worn a black dress to in less than a year and the second within the last month.
Even though black is usually reserved as a color option for a wedding in cooler weather, it is still totally acceptable to wear for a summer wedding.
This fun Milly dress has such a fun and flattering fit that despite the dark color choice it is a great summer wedding outfit option.
