Fall Wedding Guest Attire

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to dress up. Nothing beats the feeling of buying a new dress and feeling like a million bucks when you walk into the room. So when we had a friend’s wedding to attend last weekend, I took that as an opportunity to get gussied up, including big hair and a full face of makeup.

Dress: JCPenny (exact)
Jewelry: Kohl’s (old)
Shoes: Target (old, similar)
Lipstick: Rimmel Bordeaux
Nails: OPI William Tell Me About OPI
Dressing up for a fall wedding is even more fun because I can wear darker colors and still have it be acceptable. I immediately fell in love with this dress not only because of the color but with the mix of printed lace and piping detail, which made it both feminine and edgy.

And, even though I used to think nylons were ridiculous and old-lady fashion, I now never hesitate to wear them to special events during the cooler months. A pair of sheer black nylons not only helped keep my legs warm, but they also brought the whole look together by making my legs look slim and smooth. Paired with my favorite black kitten heels, I was able to dance the night away in style and comfort.

    You look SO fabulous, and how cute is that little shed behind you! I love the combo of your teal dress & the deep red lip. I would have never thought to pair them together but they mesh so well!

    Velcro rollers are my secret weapon! It's the only way I ever get any volume in my hair. I'm pretty obsessed with that lipstick now, too. I have Pamela to thank for that!

    Awe, thank you! I actually took these photos after I had brushed my hair out a bit, and I wasn't sure if it still looked good! It's all about the Velcro rollers. šŸ™‚

    Thanks, Sarah!

    Thanks, lady! Hey, I'm with you about snagging nylons – just because I wear them doesn't mean they make it past one or two wears! I even took them off at home between the ceremony and reception so Finn wouldn't snag them with his puppy claws!

    You are so sweet – thank you! The wedding ended up being super fun because our friend's used the same DJ that we had at our wedding! So it was fun to catch up with him, too. šŸ™‚

    I had such a hard time finding a dress for last weekend, too, and I just randomly stumbled upon this one and lucked out that they had one in my size. It is so ridiculously comfortable, too!

    Thanks, girl! I have YOU to thank for that lipstick – I'm so glad that I was able to find it. It is perfection in a tube.

    Love that dress! You look gorgeous, and I'm glad to hear that you danced the night away ;)! I have to admit I will still hesitate with the nylons, but I will go for the tights. I just always seem to snag nylons, I don't know what it is!

    You look beautiful! That dress fits you perfectly and your hair + makeup… flawless! Hope you guys had a good time at the wedding šŸ™‚
