2 Parties in 2 Days



Every two years Wake has President’s Ball the night before Homecoming. P.S. We WON our homecoming game against Utah State! 
So this Friday night, I got all dolled up with all of my friends and went over to the Joel Coliseum for the ball.
The WHOLE school went, I have never seen so many people I don’t know before in one place. There were also as some alumni there.
There was a live band, a huge stage, lots of food and lots of good music.
Kelly was my “date” for the night!
We got ready together and even wore matching outfits, unintentionally, but I have to say we really looked RED HOT!
She borrowed my earrings and shoes and we definitely turned heads at the ball.
It was so cool to see the whole school there. Everyone was so dressed up and looked so nice! It was like prom or homecoming. It was so fun and I can’t wait to go back again in 2 years for my senior year!
Kelly and I danced until the wee hours of the morning and then went to bed.
I slept about 5 hours and then got up at 6:15 am and took an Uber all the way to Charlotte airport.
I got on my early morning flight, attempted to nap, and then landed in Newark, NJ.
My parents picked me up, gave me the NY bagel they brought me and we made our way down to Smithtown, NJ for my cousins wedding!!
I did my mom’s makeup, dolled her all up! 
I then got settled into my big room, all by myself because my twin brother had a big rugby game that he couldn’t miss, (they WON), and got all ready again for another party!!!
Again, I danced the night away, this time with my parents and grandparents watching… and had a wonderful time!!
The venue was so pretty but I think my mom looked even prettier! :)
I loved the ceremony space, it was outside and overlooked a pond.
And then inside was so pretty too, the flowers were gorgeous and it was a kind of a shabby chic, rustic theme.
I again danced the night away with all of my cousins and was in bed promptly at 11pm.
I got up relatively early Sunday morning, had breakfast and then my parents dropped me off at the airport on their way home. :(
So a very quick turn around. 
I was in NJ for 25 hours…

The past two days were definitely a whirlwind!
I had so so much fun at prez ball and then I had so much fun at the wedding.
Two parties in two days, two amazing dresses and two amazing events!!

I have always been a HUGE fan of ASOS.
I get all of my occasion dresses from there. 
I think they honestly have the BEST selection, best prices and best quality.
The dresses just always fit me so well and always look amazing!
All my ASOS dresses I wear time and time again, because I love them all so much and because they are so classic!
So of course, for my two big events this weekend I wore ASOS dresses.

Friday night, I went RED HOT, in this little red lace number from ASOS.
I felt so sassy and fierce all night.
It was such a hot dress!
I loved that it was short sleeved and covered up on top, but the waist line was cut out. I also loved the little ruffle like detail and short hemline. Paired with nude pumps, my legs looked like they went on forever!!

Saturday, I went a little more sweet and sophisticated with another lace ASOS dress. It is a muted grey purple color. Again the waist line was cut out, and this time so was the back. But the sheerness was very sophisticated because the dress was tea length.
The dress hit right at my shin and looked so elegant.
The dress had a bit of cleavage but it made up for the fact that the dress had a big skirt.
I paired the beautiful dress with strappy nude pumps this time and big pearl earrings. 
I also tied my hair back, which was a bit out of the norm for me, but I loved it!
