Wedding Season Take it or Leave It

It's springtime and summer is only a few months away. That means it's hitchin' time! I have a few weddings coming up. One friend in July and another in October. I'll also accompany Boyfriend to one in August and possibly another in June. This sounds like a great excuse to buy an outfit or three, does it not? Truth is, I can find something I currently own to wear to these weddings but I'm no longer in middle school and don't have attend dances every other month, so excuses to buy a pretty dress are now few and far between. This one caught my eye right away because it's got a little bit of color but also more of a neutral shade, which I like. It looks like it should sell in Anthropologie. Obviously, I'd cardigan it up for the ceremony but could let loose for the dancing portion of the evening. It's a great deal at $128 at Nordstrom's. However, is it too season-specific? It's clearly a spring-y dress. Also, it was featured in a Nordstrom's mailer, which heightens the potential of running into another lady with the same frock. So I don't know. What do you think, take it or leave it?

  1. Ooh, I like -- take it! Would it be hard finding yellow shoes, though?
