the IDEO goes to a wedding :)

This past weekend I attended the wedding of my friends Jaclyn & Mason and it was such a beautiful event! Below you’ll see a couple IDEOnista outfits from the parties. I chose to pack my black Brooks Glycerin’s and that was a great decision! I felt super in them and they worked seamlessly with both my dresses. Proof that tennis shoes don’t just have to be for running! I would also like to point out that I ran 3 miles before the wedding… 🙂 #runhappy

 
I unexpectedly received so many compliments on my outfits and more importantly, people were impressed with my dancing skills. haha #IDEOdancer But in all seriousness, I truly felt beautiful and so happy to be able to be out there pain free! I even had women coming up to me saying that I inspired them to want to wear tennis shoes with their dresses! They didn’t know it could look as cute as it did!

I think one of the most memorable parts of the weekend was when a lady approached me at the wedding and said, “You know, I wasn’t going to dance tonight but when I saw you out there, I thought to myself, if she can do it, I can too!” That made my day. Friends, you never know how being strong for others can make a difference. When you smile after all you’ve been through and you choose to see the beauty in yourself, people begin to see the beauty in them too. Recognize the power you have to show others that despite what life throws at you, you can find the silver lining. Choose to be confident in who you are and always wear your smile. That is beautiful.

I think Taylor Swift sums it up perfectly, “If you’re lucky enough to be different, never change.”
