Summer Wedding Outfit Inspiration

Right now, this is my inspiration for my BIL's wedding this summer. I own the dress, and I DEF plan on buying the Stella & Dot bangles to go with. I think the bangles make it more fun, and the turquoise gives it a pop of color to contrast with the coral and gold. Obvs, I'm going to have to find a similar pair of shoes and clutch in my income bracket. Manolos and Jimmy Choo are out of the question!!! How does the saying go "Champagne taste on a beer pocketbook..." Ha:)

If you like the earrings, ring, and bangles, you can get them here at my trunk show from Stella & Dot!

And an update on my car situation. The insurance company is only trying to give me two days for a rental car. Ummm, NO! I can't find a car in two days. I griped enough, and the lady was "nice" enough to extend it through Saturday. She couldn't get how much of an inconvenience this is to me. I think personally she just deals with BS everyday and is desensitized to the situation. Right now, it would be irresponsible for me to go get a brand new car. At the same time, I don't want to buy a used one that could possible end up costing more money in the long run. And, I don't want to impulsively buy something and then hate it down the road. It's frustrating because I didn't ask for this to happen:( At the same time, I really don't like driving my husband's car. It's low to the ground, I feel like I can't see out of the rear window, and I simply just don't like it. Guess that makes me a brat. What I'd really like is a 4-Runner. It gets better gas mileage than my Expedition, and it sits up high. It's similar to what I'm used to. I'd rather just save up and wait on getting what I really like rather than settling for something. Anyways, that's the update on that.

I love those bracelets! And my mom always says the same thing to me..."Champagne taste on a beer budget"

I understand about the car, I drive an expedition too and I don't even like riding in cars that are real low to the ground. :(

love the outfit.

Cute. Hope you get a car. I know how much of a hassle all of this is.

The car situation sucks. Why can't people just do their jobs!?
