wedding wear, chicago edition

Seeing as I am currently booted, I was a little worried about what to wear to a wedding I had to attend in Chicago this weekend.  My worries were further compounded by the small problem of not having any time to shop before I left DC.  Or get a manicure.  Or deal with my eyebrows.  It proved to be a fitting start to the weekend, as my flight to Chicago was cancelled (cue scrambling to get on another), and my boss’ flight to Chicago the day of the wedding was an hour late, throwing my entire schedule for the day off, and resulting in my arriving at the church for a 3:00pm wedding at approxomately 2:59:45.  At least I beat the bride in (barely), right?  All and all, it was a glorious weekend, if a little too short.

I did manage to do some shopping in Chicago, including a stop at the flagship Marshall Field’s Macy’s, and my favorite store on earth, the Nordstrom Rack.  I managed to put together a lovely outfit, after discarding this as too bridal (my size was only in the ivory) and this (in hot pink) as too sack-like poorly tailored.

On to the wedding wear:

Chicago Wedding in August

I think I did a decent job, yes? That’s not the exact necklace I wore, I can’t find it online, but it’s close enough.  Sadly, I only got to wear one of those sparkly shoes for the night. After trying to walk in both of them during cocktail hour, it was back into the boot for me.
