Fashion- Winter Wedding OOTD

Winter Wedding OOTD















Lace Shutter Dress: Long Tall Sally
Clutch: Asos
Heels: Payless! (one of the few places that actually carries my size 11)
Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo


Guys! I was sweating trying to get these pics done under a bit of a time crunch and using only my handy dandy tripod as my extra set of hands. I'm sure I looked a little crazy running to my position points in heels all the while frantically hoping that I would make it in time using the self-timer. Again, I met some very friendly people and... some confused-looking people- but confused rightfully so! One guy came in and out of his apartment a couple times and eventually asked me if I needed some help. I respectfully declined as I was DETERMINED to master the tripod. Anywho, I hope you enjoy :)

The wedding was beautiful and while it was in sunny San Diego, CA with beautiful sunshine, I still felt that this dress was the perfect winter dress as it definitely cooled off later in the evening. It gave just enough coverage in the arms and legs while still accentuating my figure and showing a little skin tone through the lace. Thank you Long Tall Sally! I really appreciated finally having sleeves that (almost) reached my wrists. My wingspan is 6ft 2in and I am only 5ft 8in- sooo, all my "long sleeve" shirts end up looking like 3/4 length sleeves.

And another shoutout goes to Payless! They have been stepping it up lately. I have no shame buying some of my shoes from there- they are comfy and at the end of the day, if they look cute and keep my toes in line and out of pain, they will be winners in my book. 
Video to come soon!

xoxo Mary
