This month's Petite Fashion Challenge (PFC) is hosted by Petite on a Penny is:
Summer Wedding: Create an outfit for a Summer Wedding.
For Bonus points, try to make your outfit, head to toe come under $100
(or exclude shoes and accessories to meet the $100 mark).
How many times have we scratched our heads trying to decide what to wear for weddings and thought how easy guys have it? :) If you have several weddings to go to in one year, buying dresses can quickly become expensive and thought this challenge had perfect timing as wedding season is upon us.
For this challenge I wanted to put together a simple outfit and I was over the moon when I saw this dress on the Zara website. The light blue hue with silver tint is gorgeous in person and I absolutely loved the contrast trim. The color blocked sandals perked my interest as well and I was curious to see how it would look and fit in person. While the fit is slightly large on me, it's still passable and I fell in love with it the colors when i lifted the sandals out of the box. To complete the outfit, added the multi-strand pearl necklace for a subtle lady like touch.
The Zara Kids Shimmer Linen Dress cost an unbelievable $19.99, the Zara Strappy Sandal was marked at an amazing $49.99.

While I did not have a clutch on hand, I saw the this Asos Fold Over Metal Bar Clutch online and it's currently on sale for $30.44. This bring the outfit total to $100.42. Ack I'm over the challenge limit by $0.42! So close! :P
After completing this challenge, I decided to return the dress. I really do not like dresses that wrinkle and I noticed that after I bent down to tie the straps of these shoes, the dress already had sustained wrinkles. The shoes however has quickly become a new favorite pair of shoes that will be on heavy rotation during this summer. :)
This challenge was fun and it showed that you can look like a million bucks without breaking the bank. Please check out the outfits of the other bloggers who participated in this petite challenge Here
