Tara emailed me recently... she has a wedding coming up this August. Her wedding is Friday night and the reception is the following day at a park (what a great idea!). She wanted help styling this dress that she has already purchased. And it's just adorable... let's take a look:
Nick & Mo Sesame Candy Dress, Modcloth, $62.99
I love this dress... it has a decidedly summer-bride feel to it. Upon closer inspection, the belt/sash is actually navy blue. How fun!
Blowfish Festival Wedge, DSW, $49.95
A wedge is a perfect outdoor heel. It won't sink into the grass like a traditional pump, it's easier to walk in and still has a bit of height for glamour.
Sapphire Metallic Hippie, Coach, $228
Playing off the navy in the sash, I chose this gorgeous Coach purse that is a shoulder or cross-body bag. It's small enough to look sophisticated... but big enough for the essentials for the bride. This would make an incredible wedding gift (hint, hint husband to be!) as it is beautiful and a Coach purse is always classic.
Elastic Flower Bracelet, Forever 21, $6.80
Tara mentioned that she is not big into jewelry. And the dress has many details that add flair to the outfit... so that it doesn't need much more. But this gold bangle is pretty and simple.
I am picturing a sophisticated yet messy bun look for Tara's hair. It will show off the neckline of the dress perfectly.
Chiffon Flower Hair Clip, Forever 21, $1.50
I love the idea of tucking a few of these dainty and delicate flowers into the messy bun. Take advantage of your bride-status to sweeten up the look a little!
Congrats Tara! Have an amazing day!
