When I was uploading photos for this post, I realized I was in Tampa this exact same time last year.
I’m back from my dad’s wedding weekend about an hour north of Tampa. This time, Jordan came along and we spent two days in Naples, Florida lounging about a pool before driving up to Tampa for the wedding. On our way to the exurbs of Tampa, we met up with Stitches and Seams‘ Debbie Cook!! I’ve been reading Debbie’s blog since I found out there was even sewing on the internet. She’s helped me fix at least one dress (can’t find the original post about it. weird.) and even mocked up different front door colors for me six years ago. So, it’s no surprise that I felt like I was meeting a friend! Between sucking down a pitcher of mimosas we talked about sewing, Tampa and blogging. Thanks Debbie!
They say weddings are nice because it’s a good time to see family. So true! This trip was the first time my dad had all his kids together in seven years. Look at that, the kids are even in age (and apparently height) order! Gah. Florida is not oily skin + makeup friendly….
Despite all my talk, I did not make a dress for my dad’s wedding. I wore my Burda knit bubble dress. And, it fit perfectly in with the peach, pink, purple color scheme. Below I’m standing with the son and daughter of my dad’s new wife. She was her mom’s attendant so we looked coordinated in wedding photos.
And, I’m only posting this photo below because Jordan looked so dapper! He’s wearing a cream seersucker suit that I slightly altered for him last summer. I took in the jacket and pants at the waist and hemmed the pants. There are no words for how much I despise alterations. But, he looked very sharp. I’m not sure if it was more of a Matlock, Colonel Sanders or Diddy White Party vibe he was rocking.
