My allergies have really been acting up the past two weeks, and so I didn't wear my contacts for once. Glasses bug me to death (I hate not having peripheral vision, and my eyelashes rub against the lenses when I blink), but at least they made me look studious!

I love this outfit because the skirt is so comfy. It's made out of a stretchy woven material, and feels just like a sweater for my legs.

I have a ton of argyle prints in my closet, and am happy to get to wear them again, since they're mostly sweaters that are too hot to wear for half of the year. This sweater was a Christmas gift from several years ago, and the new burgundy tights I bought this year just happened to match the burgundy in the argyle pattern.

Thursday's outfit ended up being a little boring. Earlier in the day I'd also been wearing a grey scarf, but I very gracefully dipped it in salad dressing while eating lunch, and didn't snap these photos until after the scarf had already been thrown in the laundry. Whoops!

Friday we went to a party that some of my BIL's friends were throwing, but it wasn't a Halloween party, so I didn't have an excuse to wear a costume. Instead I wore this cream and grey dress with black accessories. Next time I wear a knee-length dress with boots though, I need to make sure I wear high heeled boots, to make me look taller. But at least I was comfy standing around the party in my flat boots!

Bonus Outfit - Saturday:
My wedding guest outfit for Katie's wedding. This is the dress that I mentioned last week, that I'd tried on, then walked around the entire mall before coming back and buying it. By itself, I felt the dress was a little boring, although it did have a slight gold shimmer to it that is hard to see in these pictures. But it was a lot better than the taffeta with giant bows dresses I found in the department stores, so I went back and got the dress, along with a bunch of accessories to spice it up.
Pink Party Dress: H&M (couldn't find it online, but it was $24.95 in store), Black Cardigan: Old Navy, Belt: H&M (also worn on Wednesday), Tights: Missoni for Target, Earrings, Bracelets, Ring and Necklace: all new from H&M
Black Patent Heels: Paprika
I think my favorite part of the whole outfit was the pink owl necklace. Except for the fact that my husband pointed out that I had a hooter on my hooters after I put it on, haha!
I also tried out these Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips last week, since I thought my nails could be another way to accessorize my wedding guest dress. So far, I'm pretty impressed with how easy they were to apply, and how long they've lasted.
Have you had to dress up for any weddings lately? Does anyone else always use weddings as an excuse to buy a new dress?
