Happy Tuesday lovelies! Hope everyone's week is off to a fabulous start! So if you read my post yesterday you know I went to a wedding over the weekend and saw a little sneak peek of my outfit post for today. When it comes to weddings that I'm attending as a guest I'm super picky about what I'm going to wear. Usually I want to know if the dress code is formal, semi-formal, cocktail, etc. Not to mention the time of day, location and usually what the wedding colors are. Obviously everyone knows the rule about not wearing white to a wedding but I have my own little rule that I like to avoid wearing the same color as the bridal party. I don't want to be mistaken as part of the wedding party and I don't want to wear the same color as them and take away from that special feeling you have being part of the wedding party.
I actually got invited to this wedding pretty last minute. So I didn't have time to go out and shop for something new so instead I shopped my closet. I bought this dress a few years ago and I've surprisingly only worn it a handful of times so when I was picking an outfit for this wedding I knew this would be a perfect choice. The bridal party was wearing blue so I could easily get away with black and green and it was a cocktail/formal attire event so I knew this little silk number would do the trick. Since the wedding took place in the evening I knew my peacoat was a necessity to keep warm but I just couldn't bring myself to wear tights and closed toed shoes because it was so gorgeous out before the sun went down. I almost always keep my jewelry and accessories understated for a wedding just because I don't want a huge statement piece taking away from anything. Not to mention wedding pictures are timeless, I want to make sure any picture I happen to be in I don't look back at and be like "Wow. That necklace went out of style like two weeks after that!". Does anyone else give themselves rules to abide by when attending a wedding?
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
