Wedding Wear

It's wedding season!

A funny thing happens after you get married, or at least it did to me. Once my wedding was over, I felt like all weddings were over. Not in an ego-centric way necessarily, it just felt like that phase of my life had passed. Mr. Fix-It was one of the last of his friends to get married, and my friend circle is pretty scattered - some married friends, few engaged friends, and a number of single friends. Really, aside from bestie Allie's wedding this New Year's Eve I haven't had weddings on my radar much lately.

Maybe I should give you some more context: since Mr. Fix-It and I met, we have been to at least 15 weddings together. That seems like a lot, at least to us, but since our own wedding we've only been to 1. But alas, wedding season has returned. The next two back-to-back Saturdays we will be attending weddings.

Why do I mention this? Clothing, naturally. Here are my 3 options:




One wedding is at a swanky Downtown Chicago hotel, so I'm leaning dress 1. The other (from what I've heard) is more of a garden party, so I'm thinking dress 3. Dress 2 could work for either event. Any thoughts?

And yes, I'll properly do my hair and make-up for both events.

(While taking these photos Mr. Fix-It declared, "My god! Now I know why you're not a model!" Thanks honey, love you too.)


  1. I like 2 and 3 the best. I think 3 is my favorite, especially with that necklace. 2 seems to scream garden party to me and 3 just seems so elegant I don't see why you couldn't wear it to the swank-fest.

  2. @ Jill - Ooooh! You're making me see these differently! Thanks for your thoughts! :)

  3. I love the first one. It looks great on you. I think the 2nd one is more garden party than the third in feel, but less flattering. The third one really suits you and it pretty chic looking!

  4. For a swanky wedding, I say 1 or 3 for sure. So cute!

  5. I love 2 and 3. 3 looks downtown because of the color and the Audrey fit makes it quite a classic. I would pair it with a nice chignon and some glammed-up smokey eyes. Number 2 would be a lovely daytime dress, with the flowy fit and you could switch out black shoes for nude pumps to make it more daytime friendly. {Nude pumps go with everything but are less expected because they aren't so matchy-matchy. Hair down, maybe curled and soft eyes. Number one is lovely as well, but you run the risk of matching the wedding party in style or in color. I almost went to a wedding in a lovely champagne dress which my sister talked me out of, only to get to the wedding and find out that it would have matched the bridesmaids perfectly! Hope this {book} was helpful!

  6. I love love love the first option on you!

  8. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.
