currently loving: weddington way october style challenge

Obviously I'm in no position to be giving out wedding advice, but I have, on occasion, spent several hours lost on pinterest looking at pretty pictures of lights strung over garden dining tables, diy oyster bars, and bouquets of pale pink peonies. I mean, who hasn't? It's only when you get to the Edwardian style engagement rings that you realize that you have absolutely no business doing this and should probably just close your laptop and go outside. Ah, but they're so pretty. So, when Weddington Way asked me to participate in their October Style Challenge, I was excited to put those lost hours to use.

I was drawn to this dress because it reminded me of Grace Kelly. A mix of her 1955 Academy Awards gown and the white one from To Catch a Thief. It's classic and pretty and could easily be reworn to a formal occasion. And best of all, the muted blue green shade is seasonless. I would style it with neutral accessories; pearls, sheer pink nails and lips, and slightly sparkly sandals.

You can check out more of Weddington Way's lovely bridesmaid dresses here.

Happy Wednesday and thank you for reading!

  1. I love that dress, it's gorgeous. Wish I would have gotten to wear something like that the times I have been a bridesmaid. No such luck-think purple taffeta.

  6. Love this dress and I like how you styled it with pearl accessories. Sometimes the expected and simple is exactly what an elegant look like this needs.

  8. I hear you on the Wedding fascination. I'm married 13 years and yet I have a wedding dresses board on pinterest! I can't help myself...and I think I want a re-do. Is that even possible? Love this dress! So timeless and elegant!
