What I Wore ... to Julia's Wedding!

Happy Hump Day!

So this post is pretty long overdue.  Over a year ago, I blogged about what I planned to wear to my friend Julia's October wedding.  The plan was a feminine, blush-colored dress, gold shoes, a pretty purse and my hair in a messy bun.  Most of this, except for the dress, happened!

It started with the bag.  I found this cute clutch at ebags.com for about $20.  It's a neutral champagne color and roomy enough for my essentials (ID, cash, credit card, lipstick, keys) but small enough that I can hold it or put it under my arm.

Next up: shoes.  I was eyeing up a pair of gold Jimmy Choos but when I went to try them on I did not like them.  At all.  Then my eye caught this golden pair.  I put them on and it was love at first step.  I won't tell you how much they cost.  It was a lot.  But they are amazing.  And I will wear them to every wedding and formal event for the rest of my life.  Like most pieces of expensive footwear, they are extremely comfortable. I danced in these shoes all night long, even after an 18 mile run that morning.

And now for the dress!  I had planned to get a pretty dress from j.crew.  But I was looking in Lord & Taylor around Labor Day and stumbled into one of their crazy sales.  I saw this emerald green dress and as soon as I tried it on, I loved it.  I took a dressing room selfie and sent it to a couple friends to get their opinions and they were very enthusiastic about it.  So I bought it!  It was such a comfortable and flattering dress.  Here I am in my room before the event:

And here I am after maybe one or two adult beverages.

That last picture pretty much sums up the night - it was a blast!  I need more formal events in my life.  It's just too fun to get dressed up.  

See you swoon,
