Chicago wedding

This past weekend I attended a wedding in Chicago. The wedding was gorgeous, and the bride looked stunning in a lace dress in off-white. I saw friends from college I haven’t seen since graduation, which was wonderful. I can’t imagine a better way to spend a Sunday. Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s (similar polka-dot version here)
Shoes: Relativity via Carsons
Sunnies: Franco Sarto via Marshalls
Earrings: Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s
Clutch: Goodwill (similar here)
Bracelets: Forever 21/American Eagle/My Grandma’s/Goodwill
Nails: Essie’s Orange It’s Obvious

The wedding was outside, so I wanted to be as cool as possible. This bustier dress that I bought at Goodwill a month ago was the perfect solution, and I had been saving it for wedding season. The colors in it are some of my favorites, so I played off the coral in the dress with my favorite flats and bright lipstick and nails.
