The Pink Thrifted Dress

I'm kind of in love with this dress I thrifted. I was super pumped to show you guys pictures of me wearing it at my friends' wedding! There aren't any true "outfit shots" per say, but you'll get the drift. I didn't initially intend to wear my teal cardigan all night, but it wasn't all that warm outside after the sun went down. The wedding was super pretty though and we all had a great time.

This is how I pose when I'm ready to party and am pretending to be a model:

dress: thrifted vintage
cardigan: delia*s
shoes: ross dress for less
sunglasses: forever 21
necklace: from Italy
nails: OPI




I ended up pinning up the dress to make it a bit more casual, but hopefully sometime I'll have a place to wear it at it's longer length.


I'm glad I picked the teal and mint colors to pair with my light pink dress. It made it a bit more unique, I think. Plus the floral heels added a nice touch of pattern. So it wasn't just boring, simple wedding-guest attire! And how perfect is the neckline of this dress? I've already decided when I get married my dress will have a neckline just like this.


Also, I caught the bouquet. And the groom (Matt's best friend) threw the garter at Matt. So we got to do the whole garter-being-put-on-in-front-of-everyone thing. I thought it was quite funny. It'll definitely be something fun to remember from the wedding years from now.


Me with Best Man, Matt. Isn't he spiffy in his tux?


So it was a nice weekend and a great wedding! I got to wear my dress and have a few drinks with my friends, sister, and mom. There was delicious food, a beautiful view of the lake, and we got to dance a little bit too. My feet didn't even hurt because I wore comfy wedges! Overall a great success! 

Happy Thursday!
