rekindled love affair

We went through a period of about three years when we had eight to nine weddings every year (now we’re down to about 4!). It not only got a little tiring, but I could never figure out what to wear to them all. I bought this Rachel Roy “strappy backless dress” about two years ago and loved that the colors and details worked for any season. Black heels, nude heels, gold bangles, diamond sparkles. This dress is a beaut no matter what I pair it with.  But the open back detail makes it pretty memorable so I wear it sparingly. I busted it out for the first time in more than a year for a wedding on Saturday and it felt so good to rekindle our love affair. This time I wore my favorite nude slingbacks, a black blazer, gold bangles and my BHLDN wedding clutch (which you’ll see up close and in all its Swarovski crystal and pearl glory when I get our wedding photos!).
