dress for the occasion: summer afternoon wedding

*i realize it’s not summer anymore, but there’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia. also, i pretty much can’t wait to wear this dress again so…

the occasion: 2pm texas wedding in late june

the outfit: bright young things dress, michael kors fulton crisscross zip back sandals in tan

{i got this from modcloth, a great go-to for dresses for any occasion. this piece is so unique; the top is actually more fluorescent (but not tacky) yellow and will definitely pop out in a crowd. i thought the cut of this was flattering to my broad shoulders, too. my only qualm with this dress is that the fabrics feel  a little cheap. the top is definitely not as structured as it may look, and the bottom feels kind of like a cloth shower curtain. both of these textures are difficult to iron/steam! but surprisingly, i don’t regret this purchase and will hopefully get to wear it again sometime soon.}

{don’t be intimidated by the heels…they are actually really comfortable! i’m a huge advocate of the platform heel; alleviates pressure on the balls of your feet and makes it much easier to walk around. trust me. i love the light tannish hue of these sandals. i’ve worn them out with a top and skinnies and also to a work event with a business casual dress. just can’t get enough. unfortunately, i think they’re only available in black and a darker brown now.}
