{guest post} - long distance loving.

Hello there, cornflake dreams fans! It's {av} from {long distance loving}, standing in for my bloggy bestie as she preps to get MARRIED tomorrow :) For this week's Friday's Fancies, I pulled together a dreamy rehearsal dinner look for Jillian via Rent The Runway! With the exception of the glittery flats, every item in this look can be rented--a nice feature for any bride or wedding guest on a budget. 

Take a peek at this happy {and very bridal!} look...

Yumi Kim is famous for her easy breezy dresses and this Snow Mountain Maxi is no exception. The soft creamy hue is perfect for the beaming bride-to-be! {rent for $85}
For a touch of summery color, this Chan Luu Twisted Jade Necklace does the trick. Jillian would rock this with ease :) {rent for $20}
Even though she's got a bevy of bridesmaids to hold all her necessities, this little Lauren Merkin Gold Eve Clutch would be a fun touch to hold her iPhone...for instagramming, of course! {rent for $25}

This bold and beautiful Crystal Orbit Cuff from Alexis Bittar glams up this get-up without overpowering the look. {rent for $30}

These Ann Taylor Vivi Glitter Ballet Flats round out this sweet ensemble. Knowing Jillian's love of flats, her feet deserve some comfort before her big day. {buy for $119}

total rental costs: $160 ~ total rental value: $985
I absolutely cannot wait to witness {jd} become {jm} tomorrow :) She's sure to be a stunner! Her {h} is one lucky man. I am so excited to continue the party when we're both in Paris next week. I hope you'll join me in sharing your congratulations to this fun-loving and fabulous pair. Enjoy your weekend!
