What do you do when you have lots of time to kill in an empty parking lot before a wedding reception? Obviously take some pictures of what you wore to that wedding!

I bought this dress at a J. Crew Outlet when we were in Florida and my exact words when I tried it on were, "I know I'll get my use out of this one". Sure enough, for the first wedding of the season, this is the one I wore. Lately, I'm catching myself gravitating towards more basic dresses in solid colours, and I think it has to do with being able to play around with accessories more and, therefore, feeling like the dress is newer when I wear it again. I'm trying to get out of always feeling like I need to buy a new dress for a wedding or an event but, sometimes, it's just so darn hard! #girlproblems. As for the clutch, it's probably my favourite one that I own because the floral print is always the perfect addition to any spring or summertime outfit. I looked for a long time to find this one and, since then, I still can't seem to find another floral one that I love as much. Oh, and one quick thing about the sandals; while bows may not be for everyone, I say hand me over all the bows you can find. These reminded me of a pair of Kate Spade ones I was eyeing a few months ago, minus the larger price tag, of course. Plus, the heel height is perfect for this girl who looks like a deer walking on ice for the first time with anything higher.

Ps: One thing I should have added to this outfit was a jacket because it rained after...a lot!
 
Do you feel like you always need to buy a new dress for a wedding or a special event?

  4. I always thought of J-Crew as too 'preppy' for me but I think I have to reconsider that now - love that dress!

    I refuse to wear the same outfit to a wedding or event but shopping for dresses is so time consuming! Finding the perfect one is HARD!
