Last Day

gatsbydress

Today is my last day as a single woman.  Okay, so technically I haven't been single in almost three years, but you get the point.  I'm changing my name and becoming a wife tomorrow!  I really don't feel like much is going to change.  Kevin and I had built our life together a long time ago, I guess now it is just official... What's going to be the biggest change?  I think seeing him wearing a wedding ring.  The most "jewelry" he's ever worn is a watch so it's going to be quite a change.  A good one :).

Tights- Modcloth
Shoes- Urban OG
Bracelet- Forever 21

I have owned this dress for years and I've never worn it.  For one, it's super see through!  And two, it's boxy and doesn't hold much shape.  Because of the drop waist it doesn't look good belted so I've always had a hard time building an outfit around it.  But here is my best attempt!  It kind of reminds me of a dress from The Great Gatsby, I just wish it looked better.  I'm curious, how do you think you would have styled this dress?  I would love to hear your suggestions!

For obvious reasons, I'm not going to be responding to comments for a few days to enjoy my mini honeymoon.  I will have blogs lined up so I won't be completely absent, so I hope you enjoy a few outfit posts while I enjoy my wedding and some sun at the beach :).

xoxo

    Love that dress...I think I would have paired it with skinny jeans and flats, with a cute skinny belt and make it a tunic!

  14. Have an amazing day and mini honeymoon! I know it will be perfect : )

    You look great in this dress, but I can see you are like me, used to having your waist defined by a belt or something.

    I could really see this dress with heeled 2 tone oxfords, socks and a short fitted crested blazer. Kind of make it preppy.

    Have a super wedding! I can't wait to hear all about it and hopefully we'll get to see some photos too : )

  15. Congratulations, Ashley!
    I hope your wedding is amazing! This is actually one of my favorite dresses I've seen you in! I used to shy away from drop waists, but I've really gotten more into them in the past year.

  17. Congratulations! I'm so excited for you and I can't wait to see photos! Oh, and as much as the whole getting a dream wedding for free thing sounds cool, I'm glad you decided to stick with your original plan and get married when YOU wanted :)

    Man, could you be any cuter? I seriously don't know anyone who could pull this dress off, but you ROCK it! Especially with those tights. Too cute.

  25. Congrats on the wedding! I hope you have a great honeymoon! I think you look wonderful in this dress and I love how you have styled it. I think if it were Springtime, I would accessorize with bright colors and bright colored shoes.

  30. congrats! have a delightful time. :)

  31. Oh congrats! Though it doesn't feel like much will change (and your love and life are already growing, so maybe it won't), it is still very exciting and I'm happy for your two.

    Also, this dress is such a different style for you! It would be an interesting challenge to try to style it (differently) than you have it here. I like it here. You look pretty in it. If I had to though, I'd either go sort of Study-Date and have a long cardi and hair in a messy bun, or full-on twenties with finger waves and faux-bob and a long necklace.

  32. Yay! Congrats Ashley! Hope your day and honeymoon are nothing short of amazing :-) I do LOVE that dress! Being a short and curvy gal, I can never seem to pull this style off...wish I could though. The color is so pretty on you. Have a lovely time darling! xo Marisa

  33. Have a wonderful wedding and honeymoon! So exciting! Love your cute vintage inspired look! I think you styled it so great, for my style I would have added lots of long pearl necklaces and bracelets to give it a 1920`s feel. :)

  35. Oh my goodness, congrats! You look so lovely and I think that dress looks great! Enjoy your honeymoon!

    P.S. I thought I had followed you too, but GFC goes crazy sometimes! Just fixed that (:

  36. Nothing does change! I hate that people act like it's a huge change - it's just a more permanent commitment that changes your name to me. In terms of our lives, nothing changed but easier taxes - WOO! Anyhow, love the drop waist on you - it's such a different silhouette and still looks amazing on you!

    ReplyDelete
  37. congratulations!! I can't wait to see all your beautiful wedding pictures too! I was engaged for 3 years before I got married, and you're right not much changes. Getting used to the new last name is awkward, it's been two years and it's still weird for me :)
