If you watched my Instastories over the weekend you probably caught one of my various photos and videos from my friend’s beautiful wedding. Today I’m sharing my wedding guest look!
I began looking for a dress for the wedding in the late spring because I didn’t know how long it would take me to find one I liked, plus I would be away for a week at the beginning of July and I didn’t want to be rushing and stressed to find something. I didn’t quite know what I wanted, but I did know that I what I really wanted was something with mixed textures i.e. solid top and feathered skirt. However, I didn’t know if I’d find anything like that let alone one I liked. Then, I looked at Asos, one of my favorite places to shop, and ta da found the dress!
A navy blue dress with a short sleeve, v-neck, sequined top, and tulle skirt. It’s supposed to be a midi dress, but it was a little long on me making it seem too big for me. Luckily, my aunt does alterations for me and shortened the skirt, plus took in the top a little for me.
Sorry in advance for the picture overload for this dress, but I just liked all of these photos!
Dress: Maya via Asos | Shoes: DSW | Clutch: Lulu Townsend via DSW
I decided to go with a silver clutch and silver heels to play off the sequins. Both my heels and box clutch are a few years old from DSW. I debated whether I should curl my hair or not (due to laziness) but ultimately I decided to and I’m happy I did because I think it completed the look! I used my trusty Beachwaver and had my beachy waves done in 25 minutes. This was the first time I’ve curled my hair since I cut it but I think it looks great!
I loved loved loved this dress for the wedding. It was so comfortable. I loved the tulle skirt and the sequins. The v-neck was very flattering for my figure without being too revealing. This is the first dress I’ve worn to a summer wedding where I didn’t have to worry about making sure I didn’t have bad tan lines!
I hope you like this dress as much as I do!
