A Wedding Outfit

It was my co-workers wedding this past weekend and I had originally purchased this dress for the event, but ended up wearing something completely different. I was envisioning a more retro, older glam look, so I picked out this outfit instead. I got my hair done to complete the whole ensemble. My stylist did a french braid in the back (see below). Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by! P.S. Feel free to pin, tweet, or do whatever else you please:)! P.S.S. I was searching on Pinterest (my favorite social media site) for an upside down braid tutorial and I found one here.

I love pictures from the back;)

  8. You look stunning! I feel like a dress is always a go-to for a wedding, but I love how you paired these separates instead and incorporated retro accessories. It's so refreshing! Did you watch closely to see how your hair stylist did your hair? I'm wondering if I could attempt something like that myself...
