I have a weekend full of wedding festivities planned and I'm realizing that I haven't mastered the art of putting together dressy outfits. If this wedding happened to be at Starbucks I'd be layering like nobody's business and happily hopping around in my leopard pony-hair flats. But when I have to wear a dress sans sweaters, scarves and jackets, I'm lost. Piling on lots of layers is my go-to formula for achieving a spunky look, so when I'm limited to wearing just one piece I don't know what to do!
After I found appropriate dresses I had to do some shopping for heels. Everything I tried on made me feel like I should have one of my legs wrapped around a pole. They all seemed to be appropriate for strippers or geriatrics, with not a lot in between. But regardless of my dress and heel woes, I think I found two cute outfits for the rehearsal dinner and wedding. Here's one more outfit to tide you over until I post pics next week!
This dress reminds me a bit of a Catholic school uniform but it's made out of an amazing Italian fabric, and I love the little pom pom balls on this scarf!
Uniqlo dress, random scarf, Nine West shoes
Aaand, I think this is the first time in blog history that I'm wearing heels! Woo! (here are my thoughts on heels, if you missed it)
