Petite Fashion Challenge #16: Summer Wedding

"Create an outfit for a summer wedding (the dress code is up to you)."
Thank you to Lauren for hosting this challenge!

CLOTHES: ali ro dress
JEWELRY: kate spade necklace
ACCESSORIES: ann taylor heels, coach purse

My first priority in assembling a wedding outfit is comfortable shoes...I love dancing! Next, a feminine dress is a great option. I received this beautiful silk Ali Ro dress for my birthday nearly two years ago. I have been too scared to wear it because of its bright color and my annoyance with anything labeled "dry clean only" (which I am trying to get over). After seeing this in pictures, I will give this dress some much-needed love this summer. :)

  9. I agree with Elaine - an absolutely beautiful color on you!!

  10. you look gorgeous!!! what a stunning dress! and agreed - you must be able to dance dance!!! :) xox P

  11. Nice outfit! I agree, I'm also afraid to wear bright colors like red. But I think you should wear this color more often because it suits you.

  12. I love the orangey red! So pretty! :)

  13. I absolutely love this dress! I have been looking for a vibrant red dress for what seems like forever and this shade is perfect!! Good job on this challenge and I agree on the shoes comment! :)

  14. I love this whole outfit. The dress looks beautiful on you and the necklace is fun!

  15. I like the entire outfit, especially the shoes.

  16. This is sooo pretty and you are so pretty as well! I could totally see myself wearing this outfit too. The bright red is so flattering especially paired with that necklace that just really highlighted the look!

  17. Hehe, I often think about shoes last when I attend weddings. I once wore semi-dressy flip flops (but flip flops nonetheless) to an outdoor ceremony on grass because I didn't want to ruin my heels. I hope the grass was a good camouflage, haha.

    Definitely wear this dress more often. You look hot, Michelle! It's hard to pull off a bright color like this but it looks great against paler skin.

  18. The color of that dress is stunning on you!

  19. Thank you for all your kind comments!! :)

  20. Wow looking hot in red!! And paired really nicely with the necklace too!

  21. Lovely outfit! the color of the dress is perfect for the summer. And I love your shoes too! Love your style. Follow-worthy blog! :)
