Wedding Fun & Dressing Up!

the best head-to-toe I could get. my bad
the best shot of my accessories, make-up and nail polish-same on my toes
I've been wearing that braid since my mom did it for me as a child-
need to do that more often!
isn't this dress sooo pretty??

THE OUTFIT:
dress - Free People {shop}
shoes - Dolce Vita for Target {shop}
earrings - Target
necklace - Target
nails - Slick Slate, Sally Hansen

I gotta be honest, I am not one to love weddings! I really am not. It isn't because I'm jealous that I'm not the bride- I just generally don't tend to enjoy them. But this wedding was a blast! I had so. much. fun!! I wasn't extremely happy with the outfit shots I took. I just don't think they did the dress and the way I styled it justice. This was one that certainly should have been shot in daylight with someone behind the camera, but I think you'll get the idea. Unfortunately I didn't get a good one from head to toe. Oh well. 

The actual wedding was for Devon and Lindsay. Devon and I grew up together. They are a stunning couple! Like I said, I really wasn't excited for the wedding. I went to support Devon, because our families are so close. But it was so dang fun!! The actual ceremony was short and sweet, they had a yummy dinner with great wine and afterwards I hit the dancefloor hard! So did my parents! It was an all around great time!! I also met some really fun people!

 Here's a shot of Alyx {Devon's sister} and I. Is she not a stunning woman?? She was a bridesmaid, and Lindsay sure did those ladies right by choosing such gorgeous dresses and stylists for them! 

Stunning Alyx and me right before we hit the dance floor!


Did I mention this was a really fun night?? I needed it in every way!!
What was the last wedding you thoroughly enjoyed??

What made it so fun? 
I think the people and the music/dancing made this one!

How do you think I did with styling the dress?

XO,
Have a question?? Formspring Me. I promise to answer!

  2.  I LOVE how you went with beautiful neutral, shimmery accessories for this dress, Krystle.  So beautiful.  I don't know what the bride looked like but you and Alyx must've given her a run for her money :)

  5.  you look STUNNING!!   If you are not already modeling  you need to get on that.  Seriously...and if you don't mind me asking, how tall are you?  I imagine you are at least 5'7" which makes me insanely jealous :P  ha ha!  

    Love how you styled the dress...shoes adn jewelry=hot!  dress and nails=gorgeous.  If the dress goes on sale, I'm getting it!!  LOL

  6.  You look so gorgeous! That dress is just amazing and I love the necklace you paired with it! Alyx is super cute, too! Talk about an amazing bridesmaid's dress! I'm going to a wedding this coming weekend, so hopefully I will have a blast, too! Might need to get the boy to drink up so he will dance with me!  ;)

  12. Yeah, I'm not a big wedding fan,either. But you look wonderful. Maybe I should see weddings more as opportunities to dress up rather than to sit and get bored. Hmmm.

  18. Ya, she's pretty dang stunning, right?? Yay, I hope you have fun at the wedding! let me know how it goes! :)

  19. Aww, thank you! I actually did model for a few years and it was really fun!! I'm a little under 5'7" so most of my work was Nike and Adidas; height isn't as much of an issue with fitness. 

    Thanks for the kind words, Anne!

  25. I'll be honest, I wasn't a big wedding fan either until I started planning mine and even after I had my wedding!  And it's so funny because I barely cried at mine but I do at everyone elses! LOL  The last wedding I went to that was crazy fun was a school mate of my husbands and what made that so fun was the people at our table.  We seemed to have all the comedians at our table and I laughed until I cried all night!

    Your dress is gorgeous girl (and perfect to dance in too!)  That side braid is cute!  I gotta try that!
