What to Wear to a Spring Wedding



lace midi dress (less than $100, it's a dupe for this designer version)
Chanel bag, dupe HERE // similar ankle strap sandals
MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau" mixed with YSL "tropical pink"

I stumbled upon this lace midi dress when I was shopping in Charlotte this past weekend and immediately thought it looked really similar to this designer version that was popular last year. One look at the price tag and it was meant to be - my version is less than $100! If you have weddings coming up this spring and summer, this dress would be perfect. Technically you can wear it to a black tie wedding (since it's midi-length), but you can also wear it to more casual weddings because of the sheer overlay on top. And no matter how tall you are, it looks good! I am kinda short (5'3) so I usually don't like long dresses on me... however, this one works with every body type. I'm a little obsessed :)

Today is supposed to be 75 degrees in Winston... and then we're expecting a SNOW STORM over the weekend. What the heck is up with this weather!?!

  1. Sounds like New England weather. It's 53 today, and we are getting snow tomorrow also!

    I love the midi dress! That really is the perfect wedding dress for every formality. It's super dainty but still fun with the shorter underdress.

  5. I'm not used to wearing dresses that length. I got one (for $35!) in the mail yesterday and tried it on but wasn't sure about the length. But it's such a great dress and I'll just wear some heels. Yours looks great!
