dress stress

Posted on

This year was pretty slow when it comes to weddings.  I’ve been to just one so far, that I remember, but I have one tonight and two more in the next few months.  On top of that, my bff from kindergarten, Fayla, just got engaged and asked me to be her maid of honor.  (She’ll be getting married some time next year, though.)  I’m pretty sure there will be a few more weddings before the year is out.  Fun Fact:  I have been in NINE weddings.  I’m slowly working my way up to my own feature film.  It’d be fun to make a blog post with pictures from all the weddings I’ve been in…I’ll have to work on that.

Anyway, tonight.  All my dresses are black or black-ish, and everyone kept saying, “Black?  To a wedding?”  Well, I’ve done it before, but when Jonathan told me he’d brought a brown suit to wear, I started to stress a little.  I know it’s not necessarily important that we match, but…we like to.  Not to mention, I was already a little unsure of what dress I’d wear anyway.  I decided to hit the road and do a little shopping.

Everywhere I went, I came up short.  All the dressy stuff is black!  I tried Kohl’s, Old Navy…and finally Target.  There was a big selection, but I just couldn’t find anything I liked.  Then, something creeped out from one of the clearance racks.

It was just what I wanted!  Something I could pair with black or brown.  I decided to breeze through the shoe section, and I found these:

Also on sale!  They had just the right amount of heel, and they’ll look nice with Jonathan’s suit.

While shopping, I stopped to grab some snackage.

Yay for new Larabars!  This one is yummmmmy.  I think it ties with chocolate chip cookie dough for one of my new favorites.

Do you stress over what to wear to weddings?  Ie, do you attempt to match your date?  What’s your opinion on wearing black?

  1. I think black is fine, especially for a fall wedding. Paired with bright accessories it would totally be appropriate. Black and brown are both neutrals and so they DO go together, but I really like your new dress better anyway!

  2. Nine weddings! Impressive! I haven’t been in a wedding in a looooong time. Seems that none of my friends want to get married. And if things go as planned, I want to be the next one! Maybe 🙂 Looking forward to your 9 dresses post 🙂
