Summer Wedding Outfit


It's hard to believe we went to our first wedding of the year just last weekend and only have four left.  Compared to the last three years when we've had between 9-12 weddings each year it seems weird to not have been to at least five weddings by now.  Um, let's not talk about how many baby showers I've been to this year though...

I believe it was I who shouted emphatically in high school, "I would NEVER be caught DEAD in a pink dress!  Blech!"  And then even as a major tomboy I proceeded to have a pink cell phone, pink laces in my Etnies, and wore pink tank tops.  Well, high school self...eat your words.

Are there things you said you'd "never be caught dead in"?

  2. Love that dress! The design is stunning and suits you really well (:

    So does the colour - I think every woman should have at least one thing pink ;)

  3. What a great color! I also like that the dress looks like it would be cool, which is VERY essential for summertime weddings here in Alabama!

  7. I love that dress - pink is gorgeous on you, and I really like how you accessorized it with blue. You couldn't be cuter - I love your dimples in the last picture :) I used to say I would never be caught dead in skinny jeans. Hahahahaha....

  9. I try not to use the "n" word anymore! Sometimes my tastes change--or there might be one thing from the "not in a million years" category that somehow makes me want to break my rule. So no rules. Just guidelines.

  10. This looks so cute on you! I'm glad you warmed up to pink. (I'm still slowly working on doing the same.) I've always distanced myself from pink because of the tomboy thing but also because of the Kimberly the pink Power Ranger thing. I hated it when people called me that.

  14. Oh how we thought we were so smart in high school, haha! Pink looks awesome on you!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Haha! I never wore pink in high school either and now a HUGE chunk of my wardrobe is hot pink. Oh well. There are a lot of things I do differently now than I did when I was a teenager.

  16. I always said I'd never wear orange. Actually, I think the only orange thing I'd ever had was a dress when I was about a year old. But this summer I have bought a "very bright coral" (orange) skirt, bright coral (between pink and orange) skinny belt, and an orange (stripes of peach and dark peach) top. Of course, they never get worn together, and generally get mellowed out with some blue or white, or a printed tank top with pink, purple, white and orange, but still...

  17. You look beautiful! And your late streak of slightly wavy hair really suit you in a girly yet low maintenance kind of way. How do you do it?


    I have straight hair and would like to try those waves. Or you have wavy hair and flat iron it?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you! I have very very very straight hair and I use a curling wand to curl it. I have to curl it if I want it to stay in a ponytail at this length--still too short, and my straight hair makes the hair tie slide right off hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I know that pain all too well! Have you tried textured hair ties? I found some at Claire's that don't slip, even less so when I let my hair air dry


    On another subject I have a very similar dress and hadn't paired it with blue yet, thanks for the suggestion!

  20. In high school I was the exact opposite! I wore too much pink and decided when I started college that I never wanted to wear pink again. Then I decided I wanted to dress more feminine and began to see pink in a new light. I just bought an adorable pink dress from Gap actually (pink and white stripes) and I love it!

    Your dress is probably a bit too bright for me but I LOVE the dresses you chose in your links! 1,2,3, and 7. SO pretty!

  25. The color of your dress is lovely. I was always self conscious about showing my arms. I am slowly breaking out of that.

  27. Perfect outfit for a wedding! You look lovely! I used to say that I'd never wear leopard print. I only have a leopard print scarf (well half leopard half floral)., but I'd love some leopard print shoes.

  28. Such a beautiful pink dress! Really like your accessories with it :)

    I had a similar dislike for pink in high-school but it seems to have won me over now, haha! :)

  32. OMG NOT TALKING ABOUT BABY SHOWERS?! I'm so concerned for you. Is this something we need to discuss? ;)

    I really like your hair up, maybe it's just because it's a nice change from your normal 'do that I'm so used to, but I think it looks super cute!

    My bicycle mechanic boyfriend just put pink grip tape on my handlebars and I made a similar comment - since when do I like pink so much?! (my etnies had orange laces...) Oh and my younger self would have never worn chambray, definitely something my mom wore

  34. Until I started reading your blog, I would NEVER wear striped tee (stripes make people fat!). Thanks to you I see it diferent today. I'm in the middle of project "wordrobe from scratch". I feel really good with my new look, smaller wordrobe. I get a lot of compliments about my look. Thank you!!!!!!
