High Heels and Training Wheels: Weekend Wedding Wear

Weekend Wedding Wear

Welcome to a new week everyone! I'm actually grateful it's Monday, we had an exhausting weekend. Little Iz had her spring dance recital this weekend and the crap mom I am, I forgot my camera. Yeah, that's how terrible I am. This blurry picture from my (newly) shattered phone at dress rehearsal is all I've got.


So today I'm dressing her up in full dance attire and full makeup so I can get some pictures. I'm so cereal, I'm not even kidding. She was too cute not to have pictures of her! We also went to a wedding. And once again, I forgot my camera. What is wrong with me?? I must be losing my mind! I did get a few of my outfit for the blogski before we left, so you guys got lucky! ;)





Salon Perfect False Lashes  // Wet n Wild Lipstick in 'Hot Paris Pink'  // L'Oreal True Match Blush in 'Innocent Flush' 



Outfit Deets:
H&M Dress (thrifted) $12.00 {cute option} // Rue 21 Heels (thrifted) $8.00 {similar}{super cute option} // Old Navy Necklace  $12.00 {similar} // Walmart Earrings $3.00 // Old Navy Ring $6.00 {affordable option} // Walmart Bracelet $3.00 // Salon Perfect Lashes $4.99 {same} // Wet n Wild Lipstick in Hot Paris Pink $0.99 {same} // Pure Ice Nail Polish in Flirt Alert {same}
This is the thrifted dress I posted about here. It was a $30 dress that still had the tags on it and I got it for $12.00. The shoes were bought at the same time and they were a steal at $8.00. I had originally intended on finding a navy pair of heels, maybe with a gold toe, to go with this dress. The more I thought about it though, the more I thought it would be fun with the bright contrasting accessories. I loved the end result, even the hubs liked it and as a general rule he hates everything I wear. I ain't even kiddin' ya. He's crazy but I love him anyway. (I had to add that last part for his benefit because he reads the blog) Hi, honey!
This is also the debut of all the products I posted in Friday's Haul. I love the color of this lipstick, it went perfectly with the rest of my 'pops of pink' and the lashes made a huge impact. The blush also went great with the bright lips, a little something but subtle enough that the two weren't competing. 
I don't go to weddings often, but we had fun. Plus, it was fun to finally wear my dress! Until next time...

  3. Cute look! Sorry about forgetting the camera, but sometimes I think its good..forces us to live out from behind a screen (Though I'd prob do the same thing and dress my kiddo up again ha!) Also..how do you link up to these link parties ahead of time?? I don't get how that is done, what am I missing? ha!

    1. Aha! The million dollar question! I ALWAYS wondered that about other blogs, they always had their little "linky" ducks in a row and if there's an answer to that question, I don't know. I just copy and paste from my post from the previous week. Mondays I always link to the same blogs, so I go to last Monday's post and copy all of them so I don't have to retype them every week. I just link to their homepage so if they haven't posted their linky/blog hop, I can go ahead and post mine. So I haven't necessarily "linked" to all of them yet, I just go ahead and paste them in there. Am I making any sense?? haha I hope that helps!

      And PS, you're right! I did actually get to really WATCH her instead of watching her behind a screen and I enjoyed it so much!!

  20. This tea length dress has its own look. The other accessories (earrings, necklace, ring, shoes) are also showing their great performance.
