Outfit #7

I hate to bore you with the same topic of me trying to find an outfit for this wedding I'll be attending in July, but it's really the only excuse I have for shopping this summer so I'm trying to make the most of it. I'm going to put together a few outfits, over time, that I could feasibly buy. Most of the dresses I picked out earlier are already sold out so I'm starting from scratch.

I really like the color palette of this dress and the detailing around the collar.
Honey Bee Collar Dress $52.99
source: Ruche
A clutch would work wonderfully with this dress and a white one would fit quite well into the neutral color palette. Plus there's a wrist strap which is essential if you don't want to lose your belongings.
80's Cream Leather Purse $11
source: Lady Emerald Boutique
This is going to be a super casual wedding so I'd be tempted to throw on some shoes I could wear the whole weekend.
Cocobelle Para Ti Snakeskin $69.99 (on sale from $99)
It's going to be outside so I can't neglect my sensitive eyes.
F1970 Sunglasses $5.80
source: Forever 21
A big, fun ring would be just what I need to finish the ensemble. I'd choose a cameo, in this case, since it's a romantic event.
Large Blue Lady Cameo Ring $5
source: Cameos and Such
Base price for the whole outfit (not including shipping + tax) is $144.78!
Do you enjoy dressing up for weddings?

Totally digging those shoes... and that dress would be great for a wedding. I do love dressing up for weddings, but then again, I like to use whatever excuse I can to dress up!

Love the outfit!! I do enjoy it. I haven't been to a wedding for someone I actually know that I haven't been in and haven't been able to pick out my own dress! I think it's fun to dress up every now and then!

Very classy outfit... I do enjoy dressing up for weddings when I've pre-planned it. I absolutely hate it when I don't give a thought and then have a complete clothes crisis trying to get ready.

I really love that frame/pedestal used in displaying the clutch... So cool! And those glasses are a steal.

Very lovely indeed! The shoes are fab---I love a good wedge heel!

naphtali said...

LipstickOne said...

me likey..and the wedges wont hurt to the point you want to amputate your feet at the end of the night! lol

Lauren said...

I enjoy dressing up for anything! Maybe it's because I live in a casual city and work at an uber-casual office. So I've come to terms with always being the most dressed up. It makes me happy, so.
I think this is a great outfit for a spring wedding- I can already see you with a glass of champagne in hand, at a garden reception!

Jackie said...

That dress is gorgeous! Love it, love it.

Georgia B. said...

it's gorgeous!

makes me want to do one of my one-stop-shop posts--i have not done one in a while.

Diana said...

for sure get something that you can wear all year round!

Gabbi said...

Great outfit post! It's all in my kind of budget and I actually have a wedding in June that I've been sort of stressing over what to wear too... also my excuse for dress shopping. :) Looking forward to seeing what you decide on!

Jess said...

I love this outfit! ...especially the ring. I adore cameos.

And I do love dressing up for weddings, but I always stress out about whether I'm going to be under or over -dressed.

Rachel said...

I always dress up for weddings!! Why not? Everyone else is?!?

This is a great outfit. I love that dress and saw Kim Kardashian wearing it while I was flipping channels one night. It was in a different color though! Cute though!

Hanako66 said...

I love it!!!! totally perfect...I am going to go check out that first dress:)

Bromeliad said...

I love it now that I have an all-purpose little black dress that works (second-hand, naturally). Before then it was stressful.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Cute cute cute! I am in love with the honey bee dress.
