Wedding Weekend in Ocean City, Maryland (Part 2)

Nikki Schuster

The other weekend we went to a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple in Ocean City, Maryland. If you are interested in making a trip to Ocean City, you must try the Crab Bag!

The Crab Bag

Saturday morning we woke up pretty sluggish from the night before - Seacrets got the best of us! We prioritized our day wisely: we started with coffee and bagels and then made our way to the Crab Bag - because what better to do for a hangover than eat it away!?

The Crab Bag is an indoor/outdoor restaurant with all you can eat blue crabs, the Maryland state crustacean. Each person we went with got the "Super Feast" with all you can eat hot steamed crabs, baby back ribs, Crab Bag's famous wings and steamed spiced shrimp. The "all-you-can-eat" part got the best of me. I also ordered the oysters because why not?

The oysters were not good...but the crab and shrimp were amazing! Keegan introduced me to the Maryland born "old bay seasoning" which I immediately fell in love with and poured over my endless bowl of shrimp. It was great in the moment but the next day I was so bloated from the sodium that couldn't get my rings off! So if you choose to dabble in the "Old Bay", dabble wisely!

The Wedding

The Outfit:

DRESS: Charley 5.0 - I bought this years ago on Shopbop but you can find similar HERE for only $87 or HERE 

SHOES: Gianvito Rossi clearly these shoes have been on repeat. They are the perfect buy because they are the perfect day-to-night shoe. Not only do they pair well with everything, they are extremely comfortable! I understand they run a bit pricey, but they will last you forever. If you are looking for similar but more affordable, click HERE for Manolo Blahniks on sale! or HERE for similar that are only $78! or HERE for similar that are only $96!

CLUTCH: Chanel - My nana gave my this clutch (I am lucky to have a nana with such great taste!) Click HERE for similar or HERE for an adorable Marni clutch on sale for only $198 or HERE for a Clare V. with a pop of color (I am loving Clare V.)

The Wedding:

The wedding was held outdoors at the Ocean Pines Yacht Club and Marina, overlooking the Isle of Wight Bay. The forecast called for rain all week, but they made it through the ceremony without a hitch. As soon as we got inside for the reception, the sky opened up and it began to torrential downpour. It all worked out perfectly and we had a blast! 

Office Friendly Florals

Nikki Schuster

There are certain brands that know how to create classic pieces that never go out of style and Chanel is the best for basic, timeless layers. This top is a hand-me-down from my Nana and I wear it all the time!

THE OUTFIT:

 SKIRT: Dolce & Gabbana -- I got this at TJMaxx in Newton, MA - my go-to store because they are right next to my office and they have the best brands at the best discounts! I bought this a long time ago so click HERE for an Oasis skirt, HERE for a similar Dolce & Gabbana skirt with a little peplum action at the bottom, HERE for Nicole Miller, HERE for a skirt from Shoptiques.com, HERE for one from Off 5th, HERE for a similar Dolce & Gabbana without the bright pattern, HERE for a similar Dolce & Gabbana on sale, HERE for another similar Dolce & Gabbana on sale and HERE a Ted Baker version! 

SHIRT: Chanel - my grandmother gave this to me years ago and it sat in my closet until a few years ago. I save everything because you never know when the style will come back around! ....and if you can't find an outfit to wear, layer an old top with a new blazer et voila! you have a whole new outfit!
