Wedding Weekend Part 3: What I Wore

For my final post about my friend’s wedding weekend I’ll be highlighting my looks/what I wore. I didn’t think, until after the fact, to document what I wore on the plane to and from Chicago, but next time I travel I’ll remember. Then there were some random things I wore to dance practice and stuff (we did a surprise dance for the couple at the reception), but here are my main looks of the weekend.

On Saturday, we went sightseeing around the city. I wanted to wear something comfortable enough to be walking in throughout the afternoon, but also stylish enough to wear to dinner and to a bar afterwards because we wouldn’t be going back to the hotel.

IMG_5857 I decided to wear Paris Blues skinny jeans, gladiator type sandals by Mia from DSW, and a peplum top from Loft. I didn’t take a picture of my makeup on this day, but it is basically the same as what you’ll see later on, but toned down for a daytime look and Urban Decay’s Naked Basics palette on the eyes.

The next night was the Mehndi and I borrowed an outfit from a friend.

The next day I wore a sari, also borrowed from the same friend, to the ceremony. Luckily both outfits fit perfectly! For both the Mehndi and for the ceremony I wore gold open-toed heels by Kelly and Katie from DSW. For my makeup, I basically wore the same as the night before except I switched out the blush/bronzer with one by ELF and on my lips I wore Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Super Natural.

Finally, my outfit for the reception! reception 2   make up 1 copy
