{what to wear} Summer Wedding

As you read this I am in the car on the way to Ohio (for 10+ hours....oy) to attend my cousin's wedding tomorrow afternoon!! She is the first in our family to get married and I'm so happy for her!  Ever since they let us know it would be a summer wedding I was trying to decide what to wear, as all girls do. This is my first wedding as an adult (the last wedding I attended to was my Aunt's when I was 7).  It's so hard to decide what to wear to a wedding, you don't want to be over or under-dressed, so the time of year and location is a big factor.

Originally I was going to wear the Oasis dress I wore to High Tea in London last summer, then it changed to the Edun dress I wore at the opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour in March. But then the net-a-porter sale came and I FINALLY had the perfect dress, by Burberry London! I decided to dress it down a bit with espadrilles because it is a daytime wedding, I also decided on the wedges so my feet don't die...

Here is what I will be wearing, you'll get to see the full outfit when I return next week (and maybe some candid shots if I can grab them from my uncle's camera before we leave)!  What do you think? Did I do a good job deciding what to wear? And don't tell me no because I've changed my mind far too many times!

Dress: Burberry London splurge...
Wedges: Burberry (The Outnet Clearance Sale) $80
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (net-a-porter end of season sale 2010) gift card
Jewelry: Acanthus Gemma necklace (giveaway win), c/o OASAP watch, assorted mixed metal bangles (shown)

(An early) Congratulations to Jill and Jon!!! Love you guys! :)
