I can't say it was the easiest thing I've done, finding a dress outside of my usual color palette (taupe is great on my eyes but not much else in my opinion), but I think this Adrianna Papell dress is lovely and pefect for the occasion. I upped the drama with this fabric flower belt from Etsy and feel the overall effect is classy, classic, and definitely appropriate for a summer wedding.
Will I regret the high heels? Maybe. Will I feel beautiful while I'm wearing them? Without a doubt.
