Petite Fashion Challenge #16: Summer Wedding Wear under $100

Hello everyone! Here is my third Petite Fashion Challenge with this month’s host being Lauren from Petite on a Penny, which I was more than happy to enter. I absolutely love dressing up but what girl wouldn’t. 😉 This month’s challenge was to style a summer wedding outfit for less than $100 (or exclude shoes and accessories to meet the mark).

I absolutely love this dress below and it’s pretty much my go-to whenever I am in a jam for a dress. I kept my accessories to a minimum since summer can be pretty hot, so less is more. The neckline is high enough with an interesting peep-hole detail that I don’t need to add a necklace, so kept it simple.

Outfit Breakdown: $84

BCBG floral sheath dress ($60 on sale – old)
Target Mossimo Pearce patent pumps ($24 with coupon code)
Express beaded clutch (free gift during Black Friday ’09)

This was such a fun challenge and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the girls have put together. Hope you all enjoyed and thanks for reading!
