Fresh Fashion Friday - wedding wear

Brad and I are at the point in our lives where we go to weddings. A lot of weddings. This is awesome because I love everything about weddings. I love the ceremony, seeing the dress, the first kiss, catching up with friends, dancing, etc. I love that Brad always grabs my hand during the vows and does the special three squeeze "I love you" that I taught him when we were dating. The only thing I don't love about weddings is wearing the same two dresses over and over. One of my college roomies got married last weekend, and I was determined to change things up a bit.
I've worn this yellow dress to three weddings (it was even my getaway dress at my own wedding) and I still love it ...

... it just needed a little "tweaking" to make it perfect for an early fall wedding. Oh, and in case you are wondering about the strange posing going on, we sometimes like to do pretend J. Crew photo shoots at weddings. I never claimed to be normal.

Moving right along, I decided that my brown sweater and a few new accessories were just the things to refresh my yellow dress.

I kept the cardigan open, pushed up the sleeves, and used the bronze ribbon from the dress to belt around the outside of the sweater. I also added a yellow seed necklace my sister brought me from her missions trip to Brazil.

So from top to bottom we have:
- yellow seed necklace - Brazil
- yellow sun dress - h&m
- brown cardigan - h&m
- tan flats - Target.

I think I look ridiculous in this picture, but it gives you an idea of what the back looks like and the shoes, so please pardon my tree hugging.
Anyone have any fun outfits to share this week? I'd love a peek at your fashion creativity!

You look lovely- bringing that brown cardigan in was a great idea, especially since it was a fall wedding! Pretty girl!
