This summer happens to be wedding season for our family! Not that anyone in my family is getting married (I am the oldest and that isn't in Gods plan yet) but more like the fact that we have seven weddings to attend this summer. This past Saturday was wedding #3 of 7. The strangest thing about a slew full of weddings is that while I absolutely ADORE wedding, taking in the layout, ceremony, dress, flowers, every little detail I am the absolute worst at mingling. While that might not be to surprising to hear coming from an introvert, I often find that I wish I was better at mingling and catching up with people, but alas I thoroughly lacking in that department. However, despite my shortcomings I still LOVE attending weddings, especially since my degree is partially in event planning and I always feel like I am doing research as well......apart from people watching of course!
As can be imagined, with seven weddings this summer one must figure out what to wear for all of them. I find myself with a number of suitable dresses yet nothing I particularly want to wear. Thus, I had completely forgotten about this ladylike and flowy pastel dress from Forever 21. This dress was originally a Maxi dress I had picked up a couple of years ago and unfortunately have only worn it once since then. Therefore, I decided to turn it into a springy midi dress. I am quite in love with the simple transformation which created the perfect dress for a long list of summer weddings. Pair this flowy pastel dress with a pale pink necklace, vintage purse, and nude flats and you have the perfect wedding wear (not to mention it is comfortable enough to wear for a 3 hour car ride to a wedding). While I still have four more weddings to attend, this dress is bound to make a re-appearance at two of them.......after all, if the guest list isn't the same then why should my ensemble be different?
Are you attending any wedding this summer?
Do you like attending weddings & having an excuse to dress up?
