Did I wear a Forever 21 outfit to a wedding? Yes, yes I did. #noshame.
It wasn't until I had to worry about babies and nursing at weddings that I started wearing skirts to weddings, but honestly I think they're more practical additions to a wardrobe than a wedding-appropriate dress. Often dresses that are suited for weddings are hard to wear casually, whereas skirts can be paired with a lot of different tops to be dressed up or down.
I was so glad I found this lace skirt! We've been to 4 weddings this year already, and when I saw this skirt right before the 3rd wedding it was sold out. I didn't think it'd actually come back in stock, but to my delight it totally did and I scooped it up just in time for wedding #4!
I showed it a month ago on Instagram dressed up and dressed down. I'll be able to wear it with other colors for future weddings too. So much more bang for your buck than a pretty dress! (Though I'll admit, I'm still a sucker for a new dress, even if it's less practical.)
This skirt is *almost* sold out again, but Option 2 below is super similar and less ornate which is also easier to dress down. I was contemplating that one as well, but it was also sold out at the time. However, it is now fully back in stock! You lucky ducks.
The skirt I'm wearing is super stretchy. I'm normally size 6, sometimes 8 on bottom and I'm wearing M.
Side note: Often if I buy something new it usually takes me weeks to post it on the blog and it tends to be sold out by that point. I've been posting them in a more timely manner on Instagram, so follow along there if you want more current info. :)
