What to Wear to a Wedding

My brother is getting married this June, which still seems so unreal. It is less than two months away! I am happy to be in the wedding party because that is one less dress I have to worry about finding. The dress I am wearing is this one. ย All the bridesmaids are wearing different dresses for the wedding. My only concern about this dress are the tan lines! It has an open back, which is so pretty, but I naturally get random tan lines from biking, walking dogs, and being outside. I might have to get a spray tan for this wedding!

I still need to find a dress for the rehearsal dinner. I keep picking dresses and then changing my mind. I am on the fence about renting a dress from Rent the Runway too. I have a hard time finding dresses that are long enough. There are so many cute dresses that I find that are just too short. I get annoyed pulling down my dress constantly or worrying if anything is showing. There was a point where I would try to wear these short dresses anyway (didn’t go well, but what else is college for) that I have since given to my sister.

Here are some dresses I am deciding between! These dresses could also work well if you are attending a wedding too.

If anyone has any suggestions, I am all ears! Send them my way!!

Graduation Dresses

Graduation for me is extra special. I was able to skip a year of college when getting accepted into graduate school, but this was really bittersweet. I didn’t get to have a senior year of college to relax and spend time with my friends. I also didn’t actually graduate from college. I had the credits I needed to move on and off I went. It has taken me seven years, three years of undergraduate and four years of graduate school, to finally graduate from college. The running joke in my house is that I am the college drop out. Needless to say, I am beyond excited to finally graduate!!

These are photos from my high school graduation seven years ago!ย 

For me, finding the perfect dress is a must! When I graduated from high school, everyone wore white dresses under our white gowns. These gowns were paper thin and you could see right through them. Now, I am graduating in a black gown with a hood, so no one will actually see what I am wearing unless it is before or after, but this also allows us to wear whatever we want. I am really torn between wearing a white dress and a colorful dress. Lilly Pulitzer has the best white dresses, and who doesn’t need a new white dress? But, a great dress that I can wear all summer in a pretty print is the flip side!

For my graduation dress, I want something that is fun and comfortable. Straps are important to me because I cannot fidgetย with my dress when it is under a gown. I get too warm way too easily, so I want a dress that is light and airy that won’t make me sweat under the lights (our graduation is in an auditorium and not outside). Dresses have to be reusable for me! I am still a college student and my dress cannot break the bank. With less than one month until graduation, I have to make a decision and soon!
