Spring Wedding

Dress - Forever 21 / Sandals - Sole Society / Bag (similar) - Ann Taylor / Necklace - Stella & Dot / Bracelet - BaubleBar / Bracelet (similar) - Loft 

I wore this to the wedding we went to over the weekend. It was about 40 degrees and raining on and off all day, but I decided to go full spring in this fun floral maxi and sandals. Looking back, sandals were probably a poor choice ;) We took these photos in downtown Saint Charles, which I mentioned on Monday is so cute. Lots of local restaurants and shops everywhere - I don't think I saw a single chain! Plus there's a little river that runs right through downtown that was surrounded by flowering trees. I actually wanted to take pictures on the river walk, but got a little shy when I realized everyone from the wedding would be driving past me ;)

I bought this dress on a whim last month, and let me just say, I'm really glad I did! It was so fun to wear for a wedding. Of course, I probably should have figured out the bra situation before the day of - I tried it with a couple different ones but the back was too low and showed the top of the bra (forgot to take pictures of the back, but it has a cute cutout). I basically panicked since we were about to leave and was trying to figure out something else to wear, when I remembered one of my favorite tricks from back in the day - I just sewed the straps a little shorter! I have a short torso so shortening straps usually makes dresses fit a little better. A quick whipstitch (I didn't even bother to cut off the extra fabric, just folded it under) and I was good to go. Those sewing skills my mom and grandma taught me back in the day really paid off!

This was wedding three of the year - seven more to go!
