Yellow Rose in Texas

I could NOT figure out what to wear to this Texas wedding last weekend.  The invitation said semi formal and the venue was just stunning. All the pictures I found online showed a gorgeous courtyard and beautiful views of the sunset.  I wanted to wear a maxi dress, but didn't want to be overdressed.  This yellow pleated dress by Halston Heritage was perfect because the slip is above the knee, but the chiffon layer is long.  A few weeks ago, my husband had to travel overseas for work. While he tried to make the trip as fast as possible, the timing was really rough for us personally.  I really didn't want him to go and I may or may not have been a big baby about it.  When he returned, he gifted me a gorgeous pair of blue topaz and diamond earrings that matched the bracelet he gave me for our last anniversary.
I decided to wear them with this dress and I changed out the belt that came with the dress for a light blue one from BCBG to tie everything together. I pulled out my beloved silver Jimmy Choo sandals and chainmail clutch.  Although the pictures do not do justice to the beautiful skirt of this dress, I LOVED this look. I loved the colors, I loved how comfortable I was the entire day, and I loved that my husband liked it, too and kept telling me I was his yellow rose of Texas. Which is completely cheesy, but we ARE really cheesy, so it was great.  I thought we were heading home at the end of the weekend, but since our kid was staying with family for his Spring Break this week, my husband surprised me with a quick getaway for us two up to Seattle.  We are enjoying some amazing weather and I called up a friend that lives here for a meetup tomorrow.  Work, however, waits for no one, especially my husband, so I used this time to write up this post from the weekend. I hope I can stay on top of it for the next couple of days.
