Accessories – I’m not a big fan of heels, but I bought a new little strappy pair for the wedding, and I’m so glad that I did!  I also switched out my Speedy bag for a metallic Kate Spade crossbody.  I hate trying to lug a large handbag around at weddings!  I wore a simple pearl bracelet and pearl studs, but I definitely wouldn’t have minded having a pair of Kendra Scott earrings to wear!  (PS – I almost rented this clutch… isn’t it darling?!)  Other favorites –

Beauty –  I wanted to take this opportunity to share a couple of my favorite beauty tips!  Red lipstick is my favorite accessory and an instant confidence boost.  If you want to give it a try, be sure to check out this tutorial!  I had planned on getting a spray tan, but some major things came up, and it fell pretty low on the priority list.  But if you are planning on getting a spray tan before attending a wedding, you’ll want to check out this post!  

The beautiful bride & I


Do y’all have a “go to” look for a formal wedding?  What did you get into this weekend?

By the way, thank you for the kind words and prayers for my Papaw.  This has been a bittersweet weekend for my family with my cousin’s wedding and my Papaw’s hospitalization, but he is home and recovering, and we are praying for a full recovery.

Happy Monday!

XX,

SS

    I love any chance to wear a long dress as well and I'm not much of a heel person either. #twins But really, you looked so pretty at your cousins wedding and I am glad your Papaw is doing better!xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    I totally agree with you that weddings are such a great time to wear long dresses! Semi formal/more casual weddings are perfect for maxi dresses, and formal weddings should get long formal dresses! When else do you have a chance to wear that?!xoxo Awww.southernbelleintraining.com

    I love any excuse to get dressed up and long gowns are so much fun! I wish I was invited to more formal weddings, when I get married someday I am definitely having a formal dress code.

      I agree! I probably won't have a formal dress code (because it doesn't go with the dream wedding I have planned in my head 😉 ) but hopefully some of my friends will! I can't wait to wear that dress again! Happy Wednesday! Xo
