This is what I wore one week ago to one of the most charming, beautiful, cozily romantic weddings I've ever been to-- that of our friends Chris and Alyssa.
The wedding was in the mountains, outdoors at a perfect place surrounded by trees and hills and the scent of pines in the crisp autumn air. The decorations were creative, wonderful, and woodsy... it really was just lovely in every way. My husband and I had such a great time spending the evening in the forest with great friends. Chris and Alyssa are such a sweet couple, and I'm so happy for them! So glad we could be there for their special day.
And I'm so glad they had their wedding in the fall, when leaves crunch underfoot, dusk comes at just the right time for magic and twinkly lights, and the air is cool enough to allow for boots and sweaters.
tulle dress: Target, $15
cropped cardigan: Charlotte Russe, $12
lacy tank: Charlotte Russe, $7
boots: thrifted, $3. yes. really. THREE dollars.
necklace: gift, from my brothers on one of my birthdays... maybe when I turned 13? I didn't wear it for many years, but not too long ago I found it again. I love it... not only because it looks vintage and sweet, but because I think of them (they're all far away) whenever I wear it!
These boots were something I stumbled across in some tiny little hole-in-the-wall thrift store. Exactly my size. The perfect caramel-y color. Real leather. Vintage Nine West. And, the best part, as already mentioned: THREE dollars.
Needless to say, I love them. :)
I hope you all have a great weekend... I'll see you tomorrow for the last day of fashion week! boohoo.
