Glamour Gal and Wedding Attire

Went to a Wedding on the weekend and I even wore make-up, I know how shocking is that, MAKEUP.

It was an unstated dress code so I had no idea what I was going to wear.  Friends ( family of the groom) indicated it was going to be a more casual affair, i.e. guys in jeans and blazers. Well that makes guys dress codes pretty easy but it sure doesn’t help me much.  You just never know with women, and on a serious note when we got to the Hall, there was a multitude of different styles. There were women in dresses and women jeans. We had cocktail dresses and work dresses, a few sundress styles and a few pantsuits.

I struggled with what to wear, work dresses seemed to casual or proper for me, my cocktail dresses maybe too much.  While sorting through the closet I found a jumpsuit that I had forgotten I owned, pretty sad right, I forgot!  I found it at Forever 21 in 2015 and I think I wore it once (I needed heels not flat sandals).  I thought I would experiment and add a sequin Tee I found at Target, some fancy jewels and top it off with a moto jacket. I seriously figured if I looked to dressed up I could remove the sequin top and the necklace and it would tone down the sparkle.

It worked for the wedding, plus the wide legged pants and wedge boots were super comfy ( plus pockets) It was a half Italian Wedding so big Hair was totally appropriate (and I got to wear scents, yea for nice smells)

I miss smells, nice soft scents that invoke great memories,  work is a scent free environment so no scented products allowed but I sure do love the opportunity to lather up.

Funny I have not been to a lot of weddings lately so when Ada asked if I was interested in collaborating on a Fall Wedding post I jumped at the chance and just look at the other lovelies and there amazing outfits.  I think I need to go to more weddings to dress up.  Aren’t they all stunning?

I do love an opportunity to dress up, was really hoping the wedding was going to be even fancier but this still worked.

  • I love your attire! The black, leather jacket is so classic and adventurous. Your sequined top is so feminine and sparkly. This overall look is extremely classy and sophisticated.
