Turning Heads linkup-Fall Wedding Attire- What I’ll Be Wearing

Hello Friends!

Well, next week I will be attending my nephew Corey’s wedding in Asheville, NC. My mom rented a house for the family for the week, and we are going to be relaxing and enjoying the mountains. I am really looking forward to it! Asheville, an artsy mountain town has always appealed to me, with it’s laid back mellow nature and fun artsy shops. We have much planned the week prior to the wedding, but my sister, mom and i have all discussed what we were wearing.

Oh yes! Pictures of shoes, dresses and jewelry have gone back and forth, links exchanged. We all looked forward to getting dresses, but knew that we would have to choose shoes with not much of a heel as we would be standing outside, in a barn for the ceremony. it is no fun sinking into the grass with a heel. Been there. 🙂

I will still have a link up the week i am in Asheville, but not much more for that week. i do feel the need to not be on the computer and social media, for a ‘real break” and to enjoy my family’s company. I will most likely share on Instastories as we will be going to the Biltmore and doing plenty in town.

I am wearing my burgundy floral Karina dress for the rehearsal dinner the night before, no worries about packing them and wrinkling. I am wearing this antique looking pine green vintage rose sheer dress ( with delicate slip underneath) from Zara . It was love at first sight when I saw the pattern and style. i am pairing it with my Marc Fisher suede red pointed wedges, as they are the perfect match and practical for our venue.

For weddings, i usually carry a clutch, but my rebecca minkoff Love bag was just the perfect match and small enough to carry. I wanted some vintage or vintage inspired jewelry to go with this look and my Uno Alla Volta emerald necklace, along with my vintage earrings I bought in Charleston were my choices.

i loved the soft look of this dress and decided I will either wear it with my emerald necklace or a faux fur wrap. It most likely will be chilly during the service, since it is outside, and Oct in the mountains, so i will bring a coat.

    Jess, that dress is simply lovely and all of your accessories go so well with it. You will look beautiful for the rehearsal dinner. I hope you have a great week away with your family. I know what you mean about needing to get away and unplug for a while. It really gives us a fresh perspective. Have a great time. – Amy

    I love the pretty vintage floral print of this dress, the colours look lovely on you. You always have the perfect jewellery for any outfit – I need to get some pretty drop earrings. I’m trying to get back into the habit of wearing them after I stopped when my daughter was little – kids just love yanking them! Thank you so much for the feature, that was a nice surprise 🙂

    You look absolutely gorgeous, Jess! That dress is utterly divine, I can totally see why you had to have it. I’ve actually been to Asheville!!!! We stayed there a couple of years ago when we did a road trip from Washington DC to Florida. It was great – we had so much fun!
    Have a super week, my friend – and a fabulous wedding of course!
