So, my dear darling sister is getting married this June and I have the honor of being her maid of honor. Besides meaning I get to plan the wedding shower and the bachelorette party (and you better believe they'll be amazing) it also means I have to make sure I look fab as the second most important lady there. Erin's as far from bridezilla as one can be, and has picked out our dresses and letting us all pick the rest of our accessories.

We'll be wearing the now-classic convertible infinity dresses in a lovely blue teal. I can't wait to play around with all the shapes you can do with them. I'm thinking of doing mine in a grecian one-shoulder look and play up the vintage feeling of it with my accessories. 

Just like this but rather bluer.

I've been dying for an excuse to get one of these gorgeous star headbands, and this is absolutely the perfect reason. A bit of sparkle is the perfect thing to jazz up short hair, which can be difficult to give a fancy feeling.

The search for shoes has been ongoing, but I fell absolutely in love with these Seychelles t-straps. Very vintage and I absolutely will wear them again. Plus, we'll be on grass, and the heel's not too thin or tall to manage.

Finally, I've my eye out for some earrings - I'm thinking studs but with a bit of sparkle, not too much to compete with the crown, though. I might add a necklace depending on how I wear the dress, we'll see.

Outfit Post: Snow shoes

These are my other favorite new wintery shoes - furry grey boots! They can be worn folded down, like this, or up to keep your calves a bit warm. I've also been wearing the hell out of this wee necklace, a lovely and surprising Christmas gift from my sister. I told her I was looking for a tiny gold disc necklace and she hunted this one up on etsy and put it in my stocking! What a dear. Also, Vegas clearly decided halfway through that he absolutely must help me. I usually don't mind but he does shed like a beast; not good on a sweaterdress!

Outfit Post: Wedge

Just a quick drop-in since it was a gorgeous day out. I wanted to show off my new favorite cold-weather heels: black suede lace-up wedges. Not perfect for the remaining bits of snow, but they have a great grippy rubber soul that's good when it's a bit slick out. Also, I had to show off my new haircut - I love trying out new things!

I think I might do a chevron next time.
