I spent my day off yesterday searching for an outfit to wear to a friend's wedding at the end of March. B and I rarely make a trip to go shopping, I prefer online and he prefers NOT doing it at all. Regardless of our trepidation, we had a lovely time. I decided to document our little trip with some photos to share with you.
I bought this dress at H&M; it's really comfortable and long enough to wear to the office (it comes to my knees). I wanted something colorful yet formal enough to wear to a wedding. I'm going to pair it with a vintage red belt that I already own.
After trying on heels at Aldo, I decided for something a little quirkier that I would wear over and over again. The saleswomen gave me a terrible look when I suggested wearing them with the dress, but I'm telling you-it works! They're incredibly comfortable and versatile enough for me to feel like I'm getting my money's worth. Call me lazy but I can't justify spending money on heels that I simply won't wear a lot.
This sweet headband was on sale at J.Crew for $9.99. It plays up the feminine feel of the dress and adds an interesting juxtaposition to the shoes.
I don't blame you if you're skeptical of my shoe/dress combination. I definitely was but B and my good friend, whom I modeled the outfit for, assuaged any doubts that I had.
The key when I go shopping for an event is to purchase pieces that can be dressed up or down. What do you think?
