It officially started. Yes, my mom, sister, and I have been out wedding dress shopping. I feel like I am supposed to invite all of these other people....but honestly? I didn't want to be the center of attention. I didn't want ooh-ing, aww-ing, or critiquing. It's weird, because I've watched Say Yes To The Dress a million times by now and I always dreamed of that perfect moment. What I really want, though? To find a dress that I love. I don't need to be told I'm beautiful or hear other people's opinions. I want that moment to be mine.
So, it has been an interesting experience thus far. Definitely a little nerve wracking. But I have been focused on my mission. I just wanted to find a dress I love. Nothing more and nothing less. Since I've been out and about with my mom and sister so much lately, I thought I would do a mini outfit recap. Here are some of the outfits I have worn out dress shopping. Let me know which one you like best!
Dress Shopping Attempt #1:
For the first excursion, I chose a dress that was simple and easy to wear but still had a pop of colour and pattern. This is a dress that has been floating around my closet for years....but I can't seem to get rid of it. I just love it! I kept the hair simple (getting in and out of dresses is not easy on the hair. Simple is better) and a pair of flats.
Dress Shopping Attempt #2:
For the next dress shopping outing, I chose a long floral print maxi dress. It's strapless and has pretty purple flowers all over. I again went with a simple pair of flats (easy to get in and out of), a soft wavy ponytail, my pearl earrings and a smokey brown eye look.
Dress Shopping Attempt #3:
I had an outfit ready to go for the third dress shopping excursion (this one was going to take place at Kleinfeld's in Toronto) ...but I ended up not needing it. I bought my dress at store number two! It was the first one I tired on that day and I just knew the moment I stepped into it. The dress is perfect. I guess I had my bridal moment!
So, those were the outfits I wore out dress shopping. Which is your favourite look? What have you been wearing lately?
