Winter Wedding

posted in: Beauty, Fashion, Looks | 0

A few months ago, I was invited to the boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding in Connecticut, and it seems to have snuck up on me. Suddenly it’s the day before the wedding, and I must come up with something to wear! Ah, the anxiety…

I dug deep into my closet and pulled out a gothic, lacy number from Tracy Reese. I purchased it years ago from Anthropologie, and have only worn it once:

For her last appearance, Tracy was accompanied by my old House of Harlow necklace (RIP, beloved jewels) blue satin peep-toe pumps and a red Rebecca Minkoff purse. It was late summer/early fall and color-popping seemed appropriate.

For a winter wedding, however, I find it better suited to sport classic, simple jewelry. I went with a beautiful white gold and amethyst pendant from Goshwara, silver Hermes bracelets, and an Ariella cocktail ring. Shoes and clutch remained basic black.

What to Wear: Connecticut Wedding
I always think it’s best to stay classic and timeless for a wedding, so I kept my hair and make up quite simple. I used my at home gel nail polish kit from Sephora to give myself a simple french manicure.

For make-up, I was inspired by the always lovely Emma Stone, and you can get the look at hot pink lips, winged liner, and a set of false lashes. I used Maybeline Gel Liner (available at drug stores) and Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N35 Iridescent Orange Pink.
