So you received a wedding invitation in the mail and your first thought is "What do I wear?". If your like me, you may not want to go out and buy anything new because you don't have the occasion to dress up very often and therefore will not get much use of it. Since my lifestyle is pretty casual, I only have a small handful of dresses hanging in my closet, and this navy, polka dotted dress from Francesca's was one of them. I've actually shown it to you before in THIS POST, so because it's a repeat item for you, I tried to style it just a bit differently.
Unlike most dresses, this dress was super comfortable to wear. It has a solid navy blue attached sheath underneath, covered with a second layer of the sheer polka dot fabric. The waist is elastic, and as you can see in the photo below, the sheer material hangs over the arm too. It also has a high/low hemline: the dress is shorter in front and longer in back.
For jewelry, I wore red and silver drop earrings that a friend from my old work place made for me and red and silver bracelets from Old Navy. My double strap watch is a souvenir I picked up at a gift shop from another vacation.
I had planned on wearing my old trench coat before we saw this jacket, but this one went so much better with my outfit. And I really needed a solid white purse too. Although I already owned a white and black purse, I wanted just plain white in my collection as well. The cross body stye was an added plus, for it came in very handy for the rest of our vacation as well.
My shoes are new too, but I bought them before the trip. I found them on clearance at DSW for about $12.00. I know, great score right? I've been looking for a pair of red dress shoes forever! They are by Kelly & Katie. I usually don't buy pointy toe shoes because I find them so uncomfortable, but for $12.00, how could I resist?
We had so much fun taking pictures on these beautiful grounds!
Have a great day! Amy
