Not my usual kind of dress

{Vero Moda dress || Only Cardigan || H&M shoes || Acessoirize necklace }
If you follow me on Twitter you might already know this, but last week K’s cousin got married! It was my first ever wedding and I was super excited to see the newly weds. Her weddingdress was classic and beautiful: white with lace detailing and it even had a small train! I recreated my outfit of the night so I could share it with you. This dress is far from what I’d usually wear, but my mom insisted on buying this one. It’s a good thing she payes when we go shopping, but she only pays for the things she likes, and we often have very, very different tastes! This cardigan is actually the same one I wore in my last outfit post. Here you can see that it is khaki and not brown. The necklace is one of my purchases from Barcelona. I totally love it!
Enjoy your weekend!

    You look lovely, even if it isn't your usually style. My mum does the same thing, we have quite different tastes but at the same time she knows what looks good on me so I always end up with something nice. Hope you're having a good weekend xo

    You always wear the best cardigans! This one is so perfectly slouchy. It looks like you could just throw it on over anything. The dress is gorgeous too, I love that print! You look darling as ever!

    Sooo… I read this before and somehow never managed to submit my comment, haha. Anyway, while I can see it isn't something you've been featuring before, the dress still looks great. Also, what an amazing cardigan you found! My mom doesn't buy me anything, so you're lucky, hehe.

    Ik vind het een supermooie jurk, staat je echt fantastisch! Was het een mooie bruiloft? Ik ben er dol op!

    En thanks voor je lieve comment! πŸ™‚ Ik gooi ook gewoon m'n koffertje vol met van alles hahaha. Zeg maar wat ik moet doen dan, ik hoor het wel, haha!

    Hahaha meid, ik snap wel dat je daar nachtmerries van hebt :p wij hebben hem de laatste dag met stukken te voet gedaan, wel slim van die Spanjaarden om daar die roltrappen neer te zetten ! We zijn er zelf met de metro naartoe gegaan, we hadden een rechtstreekse verbindingen πŸ˜‰ die touristic bus was verschrikkelijk duur en leek ons niet echt de moeite dus die hebben we niet gedaan…

    It's been ages since I went to a wedding, and I would love to attend one! The dress is gorgeous and that necklace is adorable πŸ™‚ xo

    Hey Nikki, thank you for your holiday wishes, I'm back and I had a lovely time! πŸ™‚

    These colours really suit you and I love your new necklace! πŸ™‚

    Unfortunatley I can't see the pictures in your previous post either, what a pity… I wish I understood how these things work! πŸ˜€

  18. 24 July 2011 / 16:52

    Oh I love this dress! It is always fun going shopping with moms because they insist on buying something, even if it isn't necessary your taste. You look lovely! zz

  19. 24 July 2011 / 17:57

    Wow, gorgeous dress!! πŸ™‚
    I'm going to my boyfriend's cousin's wedding this December and it's my first too!

  20. 24 July 2011 / 18:04

    You look so lovely! I absolutely adore weddings πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous, I love your hair! β™₯

  22. 24 July 2011 / 20:12

    Très jolie tenue ! (:

  23. 24 July 2011 / 23:43

    Does it rain that much in Belgium? This dress counters all that- it's a lovely paisley print! I'm always jealous of girls with light colored hair- black hair is so boring but I'm too lazy to dye it since it requires so much maintenance!


  24. 24 July 2011 / 23:52

    love your necklace, so cute! glad you had a good time at the wedding πŸ™‚

    Hi Nikki! I just found out your blog and I'm so happy I did! Love finding another redheads around the blogs:D


  32. 25 July 2011 / 14:05

    love your necklace!

  33. Oh, my mom is the same way! I had to go to an engagement party for her friend and she insisted on buying me a dress that was nothing like my usual style. It was nice of her to buy, but honestly I'll never wear it again. :/

    You look beautiful still! xo

  34. 25 July 2011 / 18:29

    Your first wedding?! What a treat! You picked a perfect dress for it, you looked beautiful. Just went to my friend's wedding on Saturday and there was a girl there with a dress so short I swear I could see her unmentionables :S
