Fall Wedding Look Blogger Collaboration & Confident Twosday

Today I am collaborating with 9 other beautiful bloggers to show you a fall wedding look. Make sure you check out their looks and link up today! This weekend we are actually attending our second wedding in a month. It's always a fun opportunity to get glammed up and spend the night together celebrating love. Even though it was over 11 years ago now, being at a wedding always reminds me of our wedding. I am planning on wearing my black lace cocktail dress from PinkBlush again because it's super stretchy and comfortable, while still looking elegant. For a non-maternity option, try this short sleeved lace one for under $100 here! This time I am changing up my heels to this sleek black pair and adding a fur vest for some warmth. A fur vest is a fun alternative to a typical coat and can really be just as warm!

Something else I love to wear for weddings or evening events is one of my LipSense colors. In these photos I am wearing the color Strawberry Shortcake with Clear Gloss over top. It's a beautiful pinky-red color that you can really rock all year long. I love a bold lip but there is nothing worse than worrying about it being on your teeth or needing to get to a mirror and reapply throughout the night. With LipSense you don't have to worry about that! Just apply the color and apply the gloss. Reapply the gloss as needed throughout the night. There won't be lipstick on your teeth, no smearing, and you won't leave lipstick on anything else. I've become a big fan of LipSense and have been using it for almost a year now. I've grown to love a bold lip and it always frustrates me when I look in the mirror a couple hours after applying a typical lipstick and my lips look awful. Oh geez. How long have I looked like this?! Who saw me and didn't say anything?! If I want a bold lip, I want to rock it and feel confident about it and that's how I feel when I wear LipSense. 

If you've never applied LipSense before, it is very easy. Make sure your lips are clean and dry. Shake the LipSense color. Swipe in one direction in a thin layer. Wait 10 seconds with your mouth open, then apply 2 more coats, waiting for 10 seconds between each coat. Apply gloss over top to help seal the color and moisturize. Your color should last between 4-18 hours. You can even mix and match the layers of color to create your own custom, long-lasting color.

  16. Oh I love the styling! Such a great fall look indeed. Love the LBD too, so classic! Xx

  24. This is such a fun collab! I always have a harder time figuring out what to wear to a fall or especially a winter wedding! I love this fur vest against the black dress. Def. cozy yet chic!


  25. Very pretty look! The fur vest is unexpected and looks fab with the black lace dress. It was fun to see all of our interpretations of fall wedding style!

  26. Such an edgy look! That fur vest is perfect with the LBD and it definitely makes a statement for a wedding!


  27. What a classy look gal. Great post.

  28. You look so pretty and glamorous in that black lace dress with the fur vest. Perfect for a fall wedding!! And look at you rock those heels--I could not do that when I was pregnant--my feet were huge! :)

  29. The black lace dress really is perfect wedding wear, and I should give LipSense a try, because bold color that isn't going to end up all over my teeth or anywhere else is something I need in my life! Do you feel like it's drying at all?

  30. Such a great idea to team up with other bloggers and see how they style a look! Loving all of them!

    Sending love from Napa Valley!

  31. Here weddings are an event and therefore very formal, so you'd be right on ! You look lovely Laura.

  32. What a great combination! And what a lovely serie!

  33. Prettiest wedding guest ever right there!! I LOVE this combo to pieces and you look incredible!!

  34. The faux fur vest is gorgeous, very glamorous outfit. I was once in need of something to wear over a dress for a wedding but couldn't find anything suitable. The day before I rushed out on my lunch break and stumbled upon a pop up discount designer shop where I found a Tibi faux fur coat with 3/4 length sleeves. It was the answer to my prayers and was perfect for the wedding on a chilly Spring day :-)

  35. So stunning and you can wear this same look after baby. I noticed your beautiful lip color before reading it was Lipsense. That product is all the rage. I tried it, but wasn't a huge fan...I guess I'm the odd man out on this trend...lol. You look beautiful!

  36. Lipsense is SO GOOD for weddings! I absolutely love your elegant outfit. The fur vest make it so luxurious!

  37. You look so chic in that dress and pumps! The lip color is beautiful too - nothing more glam than a red lip!

  38. This is such a beautiful look on you! Love the luxe vibe your fur vest adds!

    Doused in Pink

  39. I love this fall wedding look! That lace dress looks beautiful on you, and I love it with the vest!

  40. That black lace dress is so classic but I love the funky touch of the fur vest! I actually have 3 fur vests so I am really excited that it's getting colder so that I can start wearing. I never would have thought to wear one for a wedding, but you nailed it!

  41. Love this outfit laura!! so flattering!!! you look beautiful mama!

  42. I absolutely love that you've paired this black dress with a fur vest! This outfit is perfect for fall. This is such a feminine and chic outfit, and you look so gorgeous in these pictures.
