A week from tomorrow we leave for Santa Barbara for a week, where, among catching up with friends and family and enjoying the 70-degree weather, we’ll watch two friends get married. That’s right. Wedding season is here, folks!
I love weddings. There’s music, friends, slideshows with embarrassing photos, and declarations of love. It’s a dream at that, and then you add fancy clothes and my excitement fuse blows.
So, naturally, I’ve been focused on my getup for the occasion. Originally, I planned on wearing a silk pink dress I wore to a wedding last year, but last weekend I changed my mind to one of my favorite LBDs. Then I changed my mind again. I’m still not sure which of the two I’m going to wear. This is where you start to feel bad for me.
I scored both dresses at Anthropologie last season for something like $50 a piece (Anthropologie dress sales give me heart eyes), and I’ve worn them both to weddings before where I was comfortable the whole night.
Now, I know a black dress doesn’t scream springtime appropriate and it doesn’t sound nearly as fun as a pink billowy one, but this linen dress is so easy to wear, fits me really well, and gave me a fashion challenge to make it springtime festive via accessories. If I wear this dress I’m opting for a vintage white leather clutch and my go-to turquoise t-strap pumps. With a high and embellished neckline, I’d opt for an armful of bracelets and some basic gold studs, jewelry wise.
On the other more spring-appropriate hand, I love with a capital “L” this pink dress. It’s twirly and girly, and with the white clutch and my trusty nude pumps, I’d let the dress speak for itself, adding just a few bracelets and some simple dangly earrings.
Have I mentioned before that I’m indecisive about unimportant things, like where to eat dinner, what color to paint my nails, and oh, I don’t know…what to wear to a wedding? I’ll make my decision at some point. No matter which look I choose, I’m on the prowl this weekend for a white cropped jacket, because I know central coast weather, and it’s marked by its chilly evenings no matter the season.
