A Long White Dress

Dress Anthropologie, Sandals Zara, Purse Kate Spade

I thought it was only appropriate to wear a long white dress the day we were meeting with our wedding planner! I haven’t been able to wear this in SF yet (since scoring it on sale), but  the warm weather back in Stockton allowed me to bring out. Happy Monday!

A Little Tulle

Dress (worn as skirt) Zara, Chambray Top Aritzia (similar here), Heels Manolo Blahnik (on major sale!), Necklace c/o Spike the Punch, Purse Balenciaga

This dress is made of a really light tulle that’s soft enough to blow in the wind. I guess after years of dancing ballet, I still go back to the fabric I wore so many times. I felt very whimsical while wearing it and loved how it dressed up my simple chambray top.

I’m a sucker for anything colorful, sparkly and unexpected. This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel has all of those qualities so of course I fell in love with it, but not the price. Now, I have to let you guys know that I am not a very crafty person. This is one of my first DIYs, but I figured it was pretty simple and inexpensive.

Here are the supplies you will need: A grey sweater. I got this one from H&M for less than $20.

E6000 Glue or some other strong stuff and some big colorful jewels. Make sure you have enough to cover all of the buttons on the sweater. Make each one a different color.

Lay the sweater flat and line up where you want the jewels to go.

Put glue on the first button, add a jewel and hold the jewel down for a couple seconds.

Repeat

And there you have it!
