As I mentioned last week, I resigned from my job as a result of landing a director position at another institution. In doing so, I’ve been bombarded with a slew of last minute assignments, filings and training not leaving much time for anything else. Thankfully, my weekend consisted of fun family activities and a bespoke roof-top wedding. As per wedding etiquette, women are discouraged from wearing white in an effort to let the white-wearing bride stand out. However due to the nature of this being a not so traditional wedding, I took the liberty of wearing a not so traditional white outfit.
How amazing and adorable is this outfit from Rue 107?! From the bardot style frilly Sophia off the shoulder top to the layered tea-length Paris skirt, I was smitten. Due to the style and whimsical features, I decided that, although white, it wasn’t silk or tulle or even lace-fabrics reminiscent of a wedding gown, so I was in the clear.
Rue 107 had become one of my favorite indie brands. Between their daring styles to bold prints, their statement making pieces are not for the faint of heart. I consider myself to be a very confident woman, but even I was a little apprehensive wearing this…or perhaps it was the idea of wearing white to someone’s wedding (insert in-denial emoji). Speaking about going against the grain, I’m also not wearing any shapewear in these pics. Not so much because I didn’t need to, but because I couldn’t find my go-to extra firm high waist briefs. I wore them with the skirt in the past, and it definitely helped lift and mold my bottom half.
