This weekend, a good friend of Geoff’s from college got married on this gorgeous estate in Wilmington, Delaware. As usual, I struggled to figure out what the heck to wear, and after buying and returning a number of options, I ended up with a floral Betsey Johnson sheath. VERY different for me, considering I usually default to LBDs for weddings, but I decided to go outside of my comfort zone.
I paired the dress with a Tommy Hilfiger Collection clutch that I’ve had for years but don’t get to pull out very often. I was worried it was going to be too much, but the colors were perfect for the dress, so I went for it. I kept my jewelry simple, other than the aquamarine ring that was left to me by my grandmother — another piece that I don’t have many excuses to wear.
Overall I felt good with what I was wearing, and I got a lot more compliments than I probably would have if I was wearing another black dress. It was a good reminder that sometimes I need to take a chance with my fashion choices.
