How to Wear DIY: The navy & lace dress to the first wedding of the year

I had a lovely and creative weekend this past weekend, restful and fun/activity-filled at the same time. Feeling lots of creative energy! My weekend included relaxing time with French press coffees, a little sewing, working out in our neighborhood and then again in the weight room, seeing friends and chatting about goals and photography, discovering this lovely BBC cooking show and watching lots of charming Delicious Miss Dahl videos like this one, and attending a very fun wedding, the first of 2014!, in this dress I made earlier this year.

Phew! I really took advantage of this weekend to the max!

Here I am in the 60-something degree weather (!!) on Saturday at a pretty historic inn on the Columbia River. Couldn't have asked for better weather, and I loved the venue if nothing else because there were llamas and a windmill and the old red barn was very cool.

Sweater: Old Navy. Necklace: F21. Belt: Charlotte Russe. Shoes: Guess via Marshall's. Dress: DIY, here!

I've worn this outfit twice now, actually!, as you may have seen on Instagram (here and here), and I guess I didn't realize I'd have so many opportunities to wear a sort-of fancy dress already this year. I'd better start thinking about other slightly formal dresses for the weddings of the summer, and hopefully more parties to go to this spring!
