Wedding Wears

21 Jun

My husband and I have attended 3 weddings in the past 6 weeks, so we are a little … tired right now. But it’s always fun to get dressed up and go dancing on somebody’s dad’s dime, am I right? Here’s what I wore to those weddings:

May 11: Baltimore, Maryland — This wedding fell during my 31 for 31 challenge, and I needlessly included everything here in my items.

May 11

  • Dress: BCBG Max Azria (gift from my sister)
  • Shoes: Target cork wedges
  • Jewelry: LOFT acrylic necklace
  • Hair: sides twisted and pinned into a bun with LOFT flower pin on the side

May 31: Wilmington, Delaware — I didn’t get a full-length shot of this outfit on the day of the wedding, so this outfit picture is a re-enactment.

May 31

  • Dress: Banana Republic outlet
  • Shoes: Nina satin peeptoes with ruffle
  • Jewelry: Pearl earrings from LOFT or Ann Taylor, bought a million years ago
  • Hair: twisted most of it into a bun at the nape of my neck, then twisted the side sections to criss-cross over top

June 14 and 15: Hamburg, New Jersey — This was my husband’s brother’s wedding, so I had a rehearsal dinner outfit, too.

June 14 and 15

Rehearsal:

  • Dress: Oh, hey, Forever 21 dress, AGAIN. (I also threw on a purple J. Crew Factory jersey cardigan when it got chilly)
  • Shoes: Target flat sandals (bought 2 years ago)
  • Jewelry: giant leaf earrings from Eastern Market in DC

Wedding:

  • Dress: J. Crew (this was my bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding a couple of years ago)
  • Shoes: Nina gunmetal mesh peeptoes (those black heels were basically worn through, so I got these on super clearance)
  • Jewelry: cocktail ring and earrings borrowed from my sister (sorry, no close-ups — bad blogger!)
  • Hair: similar to the Wilmington wedding, but I used 2 sections for each twist, and the effect was more rope-like than one smooth twist, if that makes sense

I’m pretty proud of myself for becoming competent in putting my hair up on my own, and it actually stays. Watching tutorials from The Small Things Blog over and over pays off, people. One more wedding to go this year!

Do you have any weddings to attend this year? What are you wearing?

    You look so cute! I haaate weddings, but it’s good to know someone enjoys them.

    I am in a friend’s wedding in August (so my dress is already taken care of!) but I’m still trying to figure out what to do with my hair. It must be up and off my neck because, hello August! I’ll be studying that site you linked!
