wear: wedding attire.

we realized shortly before the trip, that seth really didn't have anything to wear to a proper southern wedding. in the midwest you can often get away with pretty casual attire, even at an evening wedding. he only has one suit which he hasn't worn in years and it's pretty outdated in cut and style. we scoured several stores in des moines but struggled to find a modern cut that didn't need to be tailored to fit his long frame. (which we obviously didn't have time for.) we also didn't want to spend too much on it, considering he rarely wears a suit. (though, i'm thinking he should wear one more often!) we had almost given up, but decided to check the gap, just to see if we could at least find a nice pair of pants. i was surprised to see that they actually carried some suiting. the jackets were 30% off so they were pretty picked over, but we lucked out and found one in his size that actually had a matching pair of pants, in his size! (you'd think this would be a simple concept, but after a long afternoon of shopping, it seemed like a miracle.) i found this great tie that is almost identical to one i had pinned several months ago and a new pair of pristine chuck taylors gave the whole look a cool, summery vibe. 

i wore a dress that i've had forever"* 

hers:
dress//forever21 
clutch//vintage/vitae
wedges//bcbg
bracelets//j.crew

his:
suit/shirt/tie//gap
shoes//converse

*super-cute blogger, lucy laucht, works in the fashion industry with (obviously) a lot of well-dressed people. she said once that if someone asks about a clothing item that she bought at forever 21 she just says, "oh, this? i've had it forever." wink.  






some other sartorial sightings i enjoyed at the wedding...
the bride wore a custom gown from dornink and the bridesmaids wore j.crew.  

phillip wore fancy socks

this lady was so chic. i was dying for that dress. i wish i would have just asked to take her photo rather than creeped this one so you could have seen it better.

i loved that guy's bright orange tie but the chic award of the day went to marie elizabeth (directly behind the bride on the left) whose luggage was lost on the way there but had fortuitously purchased that adorable dress in the airport before the flight. she looked great!

  2. You two look awesome! I love that rolled up look on the pants, although I'd have to coax my husband a little {he aspires to be frank sinatra's clothing twin, which results in a little old-man style..although he pulls off that classic quite well}..anyways, I think it looks awesome! And your dress, fabulous! I love that rule and I never truly *want* to say Forever21, so that's just great!

    Looks like it was a blast!
