April Wedding Recap

James and I attended our first wedding of 2016 earlier in April. Our college friend was getting married in Connecticut, and we had a great time seeing old college friends (and making some new ones, too!) It sounds lame, but I love going to weddings because it’s an excuse to buy a cute dress and get all dolled up — in addition to celebrating a couple’s love and eating food, of course.

I found this BB Dakota dress online and originally purchased it on Revolve (seems to be sold out, but you can get it at Zappos here) and thought it would be perfect for the wedding’s setting and the season. I’m as pale as a ghost (it’s April in NJ/NY, so being tan is pretty much impossible) and didn’t want to wear any pastels or bright colors just yet. This dark hunter green was apparently a popular choice — my friend Marissa wore the same exact color! I went a little heavy on my makeup since it was a special occasion, which included wearing this lipstick in “Lolita” and these lashes.

  1. I LOVE the emerald green! I feel like it’s a color that works well year round, which is always a plus. I’m getting excited for wedding season this year too 🙂 Don’t you just love celebrating love?! I hope your wedding planning is going well!
