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!
