Wedding Wear: Part I

May 26, 2015

Well it is official, wedding season is officially upon us.  And if you're anything like me, my schedule is jam packed with wedding events and festivities.  Don't get me wrong, I love it all.  But it always leaves me with one important question: "What am I going to wear?"

I have to admit, I love any excuse to buy a new dress (see here & here), especially for an upcoming wedding.  But with the frequency of weddings year after year, I have to ask myself, is buying a new dress every time really practical?  Answer: No.

Therefore, my theory in re-wearing a dress is to style it differently from that last time your wore it: new jewelry, a new clutch, new shoes, even a different hair style.  Accessories can transform any look.  Adding these different touches will make your dress (and your look) feel entirely new.  

I put my theory to the test this past weekend at Billy (my cousin) & Susan's garden themed wedding. I last wore this pink Topshop number to Beth & Paul's wedding, in the Fall of 2013 (see here).  In that look, I paired the pink dress with black + gold accessories.  This time, I opted for new fun + floral pumps, that I could justify buying since they were on sale for under $50!  I finished the look with my go-to leopard clutch and a turquoise necklace (borrowed from my mom).   

I have another wedding this coming weekend, so stay tuned for more Wedding Wear looks, including a Bridal Shower look and my graphic design work for both weddings!  

Have a great week!

I'm loving this cozy, over sized sweater for the cool Spring nights we've been having.  It has just enough style without 'over-doing' it.  What do you think?
