I quickly took these photos last Saturday before attending a friend’s wedding.  It was the first time since early June that I had attempted heels and I was determined to make it work,  Unfortunately, even a minimal amount of walking proved too much & I reluctantly changed into flats after the ceremony.  Too much too soon…

Dress:  homemade ~2008 {I really love the neckline & have been planning to make a white cotton sundress with the same patten..just hasn’t happened yet}
Bracelet:  Lulu’s cuff {old!}; thrifted bangles; Gorjana gold leather wrap
Ring:  Amrita Singh
Shoes:  Charles David Reverse {also here and here}

I am slowly trying to fill gaps in my closet – for example, I finally purchased a plain white button-down shirt last week {this one}.  These flats were bought in March as part of the same initiative.  A beige shoe is a nice neutral that can be paired with almost anything 🙂
