Officially three weeks after Caitlyn’s Last Fling Before the Ring, Ben put a ring on her!! They were married on a rainy fall day in the BEAUTIFUL Princeton University chapel before an unforgettable reception at Prospect House. The day was perfect in every way, starting with rain and ending with a sunny afternoon to allow for pictures under the fall foliage.
As I already knew what Caitlyn’s dress looked like, the only other outfit I was most excited about that day was my own. I try to keep myself on a budget, but your best friend’s wedding is irrefutable justification for a new outfit. Fate must’ve been on my side, because not too long after I decided on looking for a new outfit Nordstrom pinned an image of my dress on Pinterest. I fell in love with the lace, the flounce, and polka-dot illusion shoulders. Not one to be able to curb my shopping desires after only one item, I accessorized it with a skinny gold Kate Spade belt and a filigree leaf headband. I wasn’t exactly sure how I would be doing my hair that day, or how I would have it done, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. To add to the the outfit, I added a pair of beige Nine West heels and a gold clutch (not pictured), both items I already owned. As I knew it would be a long day, I also stashed a pair of beige Cole Haan flats for dancing in a decorative gift bag that I wouldn’t mind carrying around/being photographed with. Finally and most importantly, I kept the dress dry from the morning rain with my Burberry trenchcoat, my most favorite accessory.
