It's Wedding Season!

Friday's Fancies at {long distance loving} & Fashion Friday at Blonde Episodes 
JD and I have four weddings this summer-- including ours! Obviously my outfit for our big day is already decided, and I previously posted a picture of my bridesmaids dress for my cousin's upcoming nuptials. That leaves me with two ensembles to create :) Here are two possible looks. Thoughts?
NUMBER 1

(1) Forzieri Victoria- Ruby and Diamond 18k Gold Drop Earrings, $1,190, forzieri.com 
(2) Kaliko One Shoulder Prom Dress, $260, johnlewis.com
( 3) Phase Eight Babylon Bolero in cream, $110, johnlewis.com
(4) Expressions NYC 'Rose' Fame Clutch, $48 nordstrom.com
(5) CBC Ring, Silver Tone Mother of Pearl Oval, $20, macys.com
 (6) Shoes- Low heel peep toe court shoe, $63, debenhams.com

I love one-shoulder dresses! They're modern, yet not overly revealing. I'm too self-conscious (and small chested!) to wear strapless...I'd be way too worried about it falling down to dance and have fun. I immediately added these earrings because they match perfectly. And the purse gives the outfit some detail and texture.

NUMBER 2

(1) Temperley London Mini Letesha Dress, $2,495, boutique1.com
(2) Belted linen trench coat, $430, theoutnet.com
(3) Fossil - Blue Bayou Feather Cuff (Brass) - Jewelry, $42, zappos.com
(4) YVES SAINT LAURENT 259513 CHM00 4211 BLUE MARINE LEATHER SHOES
(5) OPI SAN TAN-TONIO NAIL LACQUER (15ML)(6) Botkier Snake Embossed Leather Crossbody Flap Clutch
(7) Triangle Studs, $25, topshop.com

I'm in love with the detail on this dress. At first I thought it was a little much for my simple taste, but what-the-hell, this is a make believe outfit! And I think it works with minimal jewelry. Peep toe shoes again, because they're my favorite! And I threw in the trench coat in case of some rain during this hypothetical event!

I love that top outfit! I have two weddings to go to this summer and both dresses are one shoulder. They are totally 'in' right now - I chose a deep purple and a black. Can't wait to see the dresses you pick! =) Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog, I look forward to reading more from you! xo
