Mint & Navy

Dress - Calvin Klein via Marshalls, Heels - F21, Bracelet - JCrew
Recently, I went to a wedding and finally got a chance to rock this gorgeous colorblock dress that I've had sitting in my closet, waiting for just the right occasion. I love the details of the dress, like the draped bodice, sash, and tulip skirt...but I absolutely LOVE the color scheme. See how I recreated the scheme with another outfit here. Sorry for the weird glare in the photos, by the way. I was jetting to take these quickly before the reception began, and the lighting was not great.

I don't know about you, but I adore weddings. I love the detail that goes into them, like the beautiful flowers and linens and table centerpieces. Of course, I also love the (extremely) free-flowing booze and the fun that is always had when you get together for a party with your closest friends. Oh yeah, and all that marriage stuff is great too, but let's get back to the PARTY part. One of the things I love about weddings, as a self-proclaimed girly girl, is the chance to dress up (and dress the mans up) and wear things I wouldn't normally wear. Like lipstick. And fake eyelashes. And a dress that I have to justify keeping because I bought it without really having an occasion in mind to wear it to. This wedding allowed me to do all three, and I loved every minute. See below for how I forced asked the mans to color-coordinate with me, like I did last time. And the time before that.

I'm in looooove with this dress. Mint is one of my favorite "in" colors and navy is such a great standby.
