OOTD: A spring wedding

This is what I wore to my cousin’s wedding over Memorial Day weekend. I spent a lot of time trying to find something more spring-y/floral/frothy/floaty, but was ultimately unsuccessful. I even bought a custom-made mauve tutu that I was hoping to wear over a black dress, but it ended up being so poofy that there was no way I could wear it without knocking over everything around me. (It’s still awesome, though–I will definitely wear it sometime when I go to an event with more space to move around.) So I went with this, which was my backup dress, and it ended up working out really well.

Dress: Macy’s, shoes: Clarks, clutch: eBay, rose bangle: H&M, rhinestone wristband: So Good, silver rose ring: ancient, pink rose statement ring: The Tiny Teapot, necklace, earrings, and hair bow: Forever 21

Dress: Domino Dollhouse via Facebook resale community FatToo, teggings: Re/Dress, shoes: Naot, cardigan: Kohl’s, headband: Target, bangles: Torrid and Deb, earrings, necklace, and wristband: So Good

Finding it on a resale community was such a stroke of luck, and it fits perfectly–it’s so comfortable and I love how it looks on me.
