Plus One





Top (Loft); Skirt (Limited); Shoes (Nine West); Earrings (Nordstrom)

With so many weddings crammed into the summer months, I quickly got sick of my go to "wedding" dresses and thought I'd try a skirt and top combo.  Even though the skirt is black, the length and tiered details make it work for a special occasion, and there is an unwritten rule that states you can never go wrong with sequins, right?   It was nice to break the dress mold for wedding attire and mix it up. And how cute is my little "plus one" with his freshly cut doggy hair?  He's now acceptable for public appearances... 
weddings included ;)

Oh I love this look! What a great idea for a wedding outfit!! And I have to ask - HOW did you get your bun looking so perfect? I always have flyaways or my hair just doesn't cooperate. That is possibly one of the best top buns I've ever seen!!

Love the sparkly top, Heather! And your plus 1 is the cutest! I've been to 4 weddings this year and no. 5 is coming up...I decided to get a Rent the Runway dress because I'm sick of everything I already own :)

Oh Gosh...I wish I looked so stylish when I walk my dog! It's so true that one can tire easily of the dress for weddings and this combo is equally festive and you look gorgeous.

Rachel Lynne said...

You can NEVER go wrong with sequins ;) That's right! HAHA but I love sequins so much :) Love your skirt and such a great idea! I am having the same issue right now. I don't know whether to get a new dress for the wedding I am going to in November, or to try a top/skirt combo! I think you inspired me to try to create a completely new look for a wedding!

You are so right, sequins always work (hence: simple sequins ? hahahaha.) But yes, this outfit could be the go-to outfit.

Glad you like the water ride or the thought of it anyway.

Heather, I LOVE this look! You are so ready for a wedding! And I know what you mean about your go to wedding dress. I bought a nice one years ago but tend to wear it to EVERY special occasion and its getting a bit played out. Maybe next time I'll take some of your advice! I love the gold sequins and you just look amazing.

I adore this look. The sequined top with the tiered skirt adds enough drama to the look making it perfect for a special day.

Laura said...

Great idea pairing a black skirt with a sequined top for a wedding - it definitely brings something new to the usual dresses you see! I love these colors together too - so classic but edgy at the same time!

Terri said...

You and your date have coordinated your outfits beautifully! LOVE those shoes.

Elana said...

I LOVE that you wore a skirt/shirt combo to a wedding, it's so refreshing! And this is definitely the right way to do it. I don't what I love more: the fact that you wore sequins, your tiered skirt, or your date. Okay, we both know it's your date.

Cat Arenzana said...

Oh, that outfit is perfect for a wedding. . . or any occasion. Sequins are a great option. Your hair is gorgeous worn like that. And I must say that your "Plus One" looks quite handsome with his new haircut.

Awww your doggy is so cute!I like that you wore a skirt instead of the traditional dress.Refreshing!

Kat said...

This is totally wedding-appropriate. Great thrift store finds have been tiding me over but if we keep going to weddings at the same pace as this year I'll need to look at skirt-and-top combinations too. I also once wore a pair of silky cropped pants with a lacy shirt and cute blazer...I think you're absolutely right about the tiers, it definitely makes this more 'special event' and less 'night on the town'.

Charlotte Sparkle said...

Nice outfit.
