Anyway, back to business. I went to a college friend's wedding this weekend, and it was pretty hot around here so I stuck to the basics: breezy dress, sandals, statement necklace. Finito. What do you usually wear to weddings during the summer? I have a few more weddings coming up this fall too, so I need to start coming up with some warmer options!
Talbots flower flip flops - old, $15 (similar)
J. Crew white bubble necklace - $15 (via Ebay)
Kate Spade gold Ally aviator sunglasses - $100 (similar)
Gold clutch - $4, thrifted
I actually wore nude heeled sandals to the wedding but forgot to take pics - the flip flops were for the commute and the dancing, which we surprisingly did not do that much of. Definitely still a good idea to always bring them just in case. I also didn't actually wear the sunglasses in the ceremony, just in case you were wondering. These sunglasses are one of the first "big ticket" items I bought for myself as a gift to myself for law school graduation. Usually I try to keep the cost per item much lower than that, but I really, really wanted a good pair of gold aviators last year. I was going to go with the classic Ray-Bans, but I tried these on and liked how they were a little narrower and seemed to fit my face well. This $100 was a total splurge for me (even though that was a good discount because of the Kate Spade friends & family sale), especially for such a small item, but I absolutely wear these more than any other sunglasses I own. I think the cost per wear is way less than even $1 at this point, which makes them quite a bargain in my book. I'm trying to start focusing on this principle - quality over quantity - in my wardrobe more seriously, so stay tuned for some upcoming posts about my closet rehab project!
And I almost forgot to mention that I'm linking up with Molly's YOLO Mondays over at Still Being Molly today too, so head over there to link up your own post or check out everyone else's!
